Our annual Virgin Island Trip Report

Post by Bob & Sharon »

We returned from a three-week escape to the Virgin Islands on Dec 17th. The trip started with two weeks on Virgin Gorda where we rented a house near Spring Bay and enjoyed snorkeling all over the island and eating at the Mineshaft, Hog Heaven and Chez Bamboo. Shopping is better now on VG thanks to the new Bucks wholesale. We finished up at Caneel Bay on St John which is summer camp for adults done right. The best restaurant on the island La Toppa in Cruz bay.

It was marvelous, as always. We photographed and identified 182 fish and other wildlife this year, a new record for us. Unfortunately, we saw our first Lionfish this year at Caneel (none seen in Virgin Gorda). The trip’s log, photographs and some videos can be found in a folder behind our website at the link:


Hope you enjoy them!

Very nice, thanks. Thinking about adding a Virgin Gorda leg to our next trip.
