Busy Bee. Coral Bay. St John. Diving. Snorkeling. Pizza.

Coral Bay’s finest day charter.

The Busy Bee is a 26′ power catamaran based in Coral Bay, St John, USVI.  We offer day charter trips around the US and British Virgin Islands.  Come see some of the finest snorkeling destinations, experience the most beautiful beaches, sip rum drinks at world famous bars, or cozy up the Virgin Islands only floating pizza restaurant!

We are now a PADI dive boat and offering private Scuba Diving from Coral Bay!

Our experienced and professional captains enjoy playing on, in and under the water as much as possible – it is how we spend the time we aren’t working – and know where the best places are hiding! Whether you want a day of sun, fun, sipping rum or you want to be as far away from the crowds as possible, we can tailor a trip for you.

***A note from the Bee’s following Hurricanes Irma and Maria***

The islands were devastated by two Cat 5 Hurricanes in the month of September 2017. Our boat, the Busy Bee, fell from her trailer and is resting on her starboard sponson. We have gotten her lifted off the ground and a cursory inspection shows she is still in good shape. We will be trying to get some help raising her completely back onto the trailer and relaunched. Busy Bee will be operating this year, but plan on volunteering a large swath of our time and resources to the recovery efforts of our island home and the homes/businesses of our friends. We know St John will be a premier vacation destination, again – we hope sooner than later.

As for our home – sailing-vessel Mariana – she broke free of her five anchors and three sandscrews, landing on a rocky shoreline. After Irma we knew she was easily salvageable but Maria ended up putting a roughly 6′ x 4′ hole in the side. We are not sure what will become of her or where we will live.

Currently, we are in Wilmington, NC decompressing and recovering with the comforts of Bryan’s parent’s home. We will be here for a few weeks before we head back to the islands.

Thank you for you continued support and concerns. We hope we will be welcoming you back across our gunwales soon.
