Our day snorkeling trip with Captain Debs was excellent! Deborah was the consummate host from start to finish, super friendly and engaging. Our adventure began at Soper’s Hole where she greeted us at the dock with her lovely first-mate, Penny. The boat was clean, upgraded and well-appointed. Ice-cold sodas, waters and freshly cut up fruits, cheese and crackers were offered & available throughout the journey.

We zipped off to “the Indians” for some amazing snorkeling. The boat ride was smooth and exhilarating. On arrival, Debs & Penny gave thoughtful instructions on how best to swim & appreciate the reef. The reef was teeming with a variety or corals, varietal fish and huge lobsters (I mean HUGE). We were also visited by a barracuda under our boat taking in the shade. At the end of the snorkel, Captain Debs swam right up and gently pushed it off for those in the party a bit anxious jumping back on the boat with the visitor there :). The fresh water temperate shower offered on the boat thereafter was a welcome, unique refreshing rinse-off that we had not experienced on other boat excursions.

Next we headed off to lunch. On the way, Debs treated us to a history lesson off Salt Island to hear the story of the 150 year old sunken shipwreck of the Rhone. The Titanic of her time, she was tragically caught in a hurricane and broke into three pieces off the island. In the right sea conditions, it is a popular diving & snorkeling stop.

Thereafter we arrived at an anchored pirate-like ‍☠️ ship called “Willy T” off Norman Island, complete with full bar, all set in a gorgeous cove surrounded by bright turquoise blue waters. We were treated to turtles swimming about in the gorgeous waters surrounding the ship while we savored delicious mahi and wahoo atop our Caesar salads, accompanying our frozen passion fruit margaritas! Yummy!
A BVI snorkeling day would not be complete without a snorkeling stop at the Norman caves where pirated Spanish treasure has been discovered. Fun to dream you might spot a gold doubloon twinkling back at you from the sandy bottom!
Arriving back at Soper’s Hole, we reflected on our full day of fun, sun and snorkeling made all the better by the charming personalities of Captain Debs & Penny who made us feel comfortable and at ease.
We highly recommend any water excursions with Captain Debs!

Captain Debs took me and my wife and two other people on a snorkeling and scuba outing that we won’t soon forget. We left out of Pusser’s in Soper’s Hole about 9:30 am, and had a fabulous opportunity to snorkel around The Indians, where tropical fish were in great abundance, lobsters were scurrying along and under the reefs, and a barracuda even sought shade under our boat. Meanwhile, Captain Debs and two others strapped on their scuba tanks and took their dive to probably 30-40 ft.
With the sun shining brightly the water clarity could not have been better for snorkeling or scuba.
After about a couple of hours, Captain Debs picked up anchor and took us along Peter and Cooper Islands and filled us in on some of the nautical and storm history of the area.
We then headed to Willy T’s, a replica of a pirate ship off of Norman Island, where we had a wonderful and relaxing lunch.
After a restful period in the shade we then headed to The Caves of Norman Island ( and of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island lore). We snorkeled lazily for about an hour in and around the caves (not much to see here though) and then headed back to the West End, where our day ended at about 4 pm.
Thank you for a fantastic time, Captain Debs. We will look forward to going out with you again!

We went on an excursion with Deborah to Jost Van Dyke and she took us to a beautiful snorkel spot that we had never before visited. It was great to be introduced to a new experience even after visiting many times before.
The whole day was relaxing and entertaining and we greatly enjoyed Deborah’s company.
Would definitely take another island tour with her!
