Cruz Bay, St. John Charter Boat Destinations:
Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands

White Bay - Jost Van Dyke, BVI

One Love Bar - Jost Van Dyke, BVI

Jost Van Dyke (or just “Yost” to the locals) is the preferred “chill out” spot for most of the residents of St. John. This is where the cool people go to get a little rest and relaxation away from paradise. Besides its laid back character, Jost is the home to several well known eating and drinking establishments. Jost is a fairly short boat ride away from the USVI and is sometimes the first, but more often the last, stop of the day. During Prohibition in the 1930’s, Jost was a popular bootlegging station for the running of alcohol to St. Thomas.

If arriving at Jost straight from the USVI the first stop is the Customs Office at Great Harbour. At the eastern end of the beach in Great Harbor, Foxy’s Tamarind Bar & Restaurant has been a legendary stop on the BVI party circuit for decades.

Just west of Great Harbor on Jost, is White Bay, a near perfect beach hang-out. On most weekends White Bay is “home” to many St. Johnians trying to get away from it all. The world famous Soggy Dollar Bar is located here. Legend has it that Soggy Dollar originally got its name from the wet dollar bills customers would use to pay for their drinks after wading ashore. One of our favorite island establishments is One Love located just west of the Soggy Dollar. Besides the high chill out quotient of the beautiful sand beach at White Bay, there is also excellent snorkeling in the bay with breathtaking formations of elkhorn coral.
