Tortola

Saturday was the final day of the cruise, and destined to be the best. We started out with a dolphin experience, followed by the much anticipated beach day at Jost Van Dyke.

Harbor

Tortola

The harbor in Tortola is a well known destination for charter yachts. We tendered to the small port and then took a bus to the dolphin experience.

I'm not a big fan of caviar, but there were plenty of takers.

Many private yachts motor over from Puerto Rico to weekend here.

End of Day - Jost Van Dyke

The beach day was the best day of the trip. By this point, most of the passengers know eachother, friendships have been made, and it's time for a party. I brought my Aerobee football and the passengers spent most of the afternoon in the water drinking and playing catch. The evening was spent exchanging emails and looking back on the wonderful voyage.
