What to Bring Aboard Your Take It Easy Boat Charter
For the Best Virgin Islands Cruise Ever!
Passports are required if you plan on visiting the British Virgin Islands.
We do not provide towels so it’s a good idea to bring them with you for laying on the yacht, at the beach, getting out of the water, etc.
Bring your cameras or smartphone to capture all of the fun and action as you tour the beautiful VI. Be sure to capture images of turtles, fish and other tropical marine life that swim your way!
- Hats, Sunglasses, Cover-ups or T-Shirts
You want to avoid getting a sunburn in the Caribbean sun so be sure to protect your face and skin from the harmful effects of the sun.
Flip-flops are easy to kick off when you’ve got your toes in the sand!
- Snorkel Gear
Bring your own snorkel gear if you prefer to use your own. If not, we provide snorkel gear on board for everyone to use.
- Food and Drinks
We provide snacks and drinks while onboard our yachts. Drinks include our famous Take It Easy Rum Punch, cocktails or other drink requests you may have! We have a stocked bar with rum, vodka, beer, juices, water, sodas and snacks for up to 12 passengers on board for your pleasure.
- Infant Life Vests
If you have an infant or young child under 30 lbs., please bring an approved infant/child life vest. We do not carry infant life vests on our boats. Life vests we provide by law are designed for passengers weighing more than 30 lbs.
Bring your MP3/iPod/smartphone with your playlists to plug into our sound system. Our crew can also provide the perfect Caribbean music as you sit back, relax and take it easy!
- Extra Cash
For souvenirs, lunch, customs fees and of course, gratuity for Take It Easy's five-star crew who works hard to make sure you have a safe and great day. Please tip accordingly.
- Special Note About Sunscreens
We provide a wide variety of cream sunscreen for guests ranging from high to low SPF to help keep you protected. We do not allow aerosol sunscreens, spray-on sunscreens or Coppertone-brand sunscreens on our boats. These types of sunscreens make the deck and everything it touches very slippery. These products also tend to stain boat upholstery, fabrics and cushions. Thank you for understanding.
Cell Phone Service
Most major carriers provide cell phone service in the US and BVI, so you can stay connected with friends and family on social media posting about your terrific vacation aboard a Take It Easy Charter Cruise! We encourage you to check with your carrier first to see if additional rates or roaming charges apply.

My friends and I came down to St Thomas to explore and relax for a week. It was recommended that we utilize the Take It Easy for a sunset cruise and we were not disappointed. The captain and crew were amazing and knowledgeable about the islands. The ship was top notch and the views we saw were breathtaking to say the least. This trip was worth every penny and I’ll for sure be back the next time I’m here.

After doing a lot of research, we decided to charter with Take It Easy to take a bachelorette party of 11 girls to the BVI for a day trip, and we were not disappointed! We went all the way to the Baths and then back to Jost Van Dyke, all the while traveling in style. Kevin was our wonderful captain and helped us plan a great trip. And Brooke, our incredible first mate, was the star of the day! She always made sure we had her awesome rum punch in our hands, obliged our excessive picture requests, and even joined us for lunch at Hendo’s. We could not have had a more perfect trip — I could not recommend Take It Easy enough!

“Experience the Virgin Island beauty...”
Experience the Virgin Island beauty you can only see from the water aboard the Take It Easy. Our travel group of 12 adults has spent 3 different vacation days aboard this vessel and they are some of our favorite days while staying on St John. We spent one day with Dana two years ago and loved it so much we opted for two days this year which we spent with with Alex and Brooke. ALL are first class captains, crew and hosts. We love the history and facts they share about the scenery as you weave in and out of the USVI and BVI’s. Whether going to snorkel around St John, bar hoping to Jost Van Dyke or Pirates Bight, having lunch at Willy T or taking in the natural beauty at the Virgin Gorda Baths you will have a day to remember. Don’t forget your passport if going to the BVI’s! You won’t regret your decision to spend your day aboard the Take It Easy.

The captain and first mate (Dana and Brooke) of Take It Easy are amazing and took excellent care of us for my 40th birthday celebration. We toured the islands, snorkeled, explored caverns, and grabbed a drink at the Soggy Dollar. The boat was beautiful. They had everything we needed for a magical day. I can't wait to do it again!

"Great Day in the BVI"
The best day of our vacation -- Dana is a great captain. Brooke is a very attentive first mate. Together we planned a great day of snorkeling at the Indians, lunch at the Bight, and, of course, painkillers at The Soggy Dollar. Take It Easy is fast, comfortable, clean and well provisioned for fun day. It's great for a few couples or a family. We highly recommend spending a day with Dana and Take It Easy during your Caribbean holiday.

"First time to "Take it easy " in St.Thomas"
Thank you for such a great day experiencing so many things we couldn't have with staying on the island. We had options and never felt rushed. Great Captain and Alesha was the best! Thanks for a great day on the "Take it easy" private tour.

We went our for a day on 12/23 and covered as much ground as we could with a 3, 5 and 7 year old. The boat is extremely well taken care of and Dana created a great day for us that was suitable for the kids. We had a fantastic time and will definitely go out with Dana again when we visit St Thomas next.
