Charter to the Baths

by jtirpak

We will be arriving in Tortola at 7:30 am on a NCL cruise. We have 14+ people in our group and are looking for a charter to the baths that leaves about 8 am or so. Speedy & Smiths ferry services do not depart until 9 am. We need to be back to the ship by 2:30 & would like as much time there as possible & not have to stay with a tour group.

Hi - if you haven't already done so check on www.cruisecritic.com. You can ask your question on the NCL board or Ports of Call (Caribbean/Tortola). You should get plenty of recommendations/info there. We'll be doing this same thing in Nov. but are taking the ferry. Have a great cruise!

Re: Charter to the Baths

I don't know if you have already been but I will answer just in case. We did this with the same thoughts as you. We ended up taking White Squall II which was great in everyway EXCEPT for the fact that is was slowwww.....it is quite a ways away, so whatever you choose, choose something that moves fast. With that many people you should be able to charter something and move the start time up so you can get out of there as soon as possible. It is gorgeous and you want to maximize your time there. Have a great time....sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Travel Tips for Tortola

Advantages of skipping the cruise excursion

by Dabs

Since we are no longer novice cruisers, we book all of our excursions independent of the ship. The benefits differ from port to port but in the case I found the benefits to be:

a) Lower cost, I don't remember the exact cost of the ship's excursion but it was more than Tortola Charters which was $55, we did the trip for $41 ($38 for Speedy's, $3 admission)
b) time of excursion, 4 hours if you did the Princess tour, we left at 9am and returned at 3:15 giving us an extra 2 1/4 hours at the Baths and we could have stayed even later
c) crowds, we heard reports of having to wait to walk between Spring and Devil's Bay, we encountered only a couple of people
d) the ship tour was identical to our tour but more expensive, they had transportation by Speedy's just like we did although Princess did have a boat dedicated to them

Packing for the Baths

by Dabs

Water shoes were very useful for the walk between Spring and Devil's Bay

If you have swim shorts with waterproof pockets or one of those money things you can hang around your neck, you might find it useful as there are no lockers at Devil's Bay although you could lock it up at Spring Bay and head back there before leaving.

Bathing suit Sunscreen, there is a little shade but you'll spend most of your time in the sun Snorkel gear isn't rented there, I didn't even use mine, I don't think it's necessary to lug along Towel
Water
Snacks

Climb Mount Sage

by Mike247worldwide

The tallest point in the Virgin Islands. You can't see much from there because of the foliage. But, I left a "deposit" to mark the occasion. In 20 years I'll return to find a huge tree benefitting from the fertilizer.

Long Bay

by agapotravel

Long Bay Beach is a mile long white sand beach that is stunningly beautiful. We saw this beach the most often because that is where we stayed. It is a bit rocky when you first enter the water, but once you get out into the water a bit, it is sandy. The locals say that the water is pretty rough in the winter, but it was fine for swimming in July. No fish here, though.

The Baths-Devil's Bay

by Dabs

After walking through the rocks, you end up at Devil's Bay, the water here is calmer than Spring Bay and perfect for floating around. There are no amenities here, no snack bar, no lockers, no toilets. I didn't snorkel here but my husband did, he said that he saw some fish but he was really far from shore and said there was nothing unusual. Unless you are a really strong swimmer, you might not want to bother lugging snorkel gear with you.

The walk back to the parking lot doesn't require you to go back through the rocks that you navigated coming from Spring Bay, there is another trail which is longer than the trail going down to Spring Bay from the parking lot, I think it took us 15-20 minutes so give yourself plenty of time.
