Blu Bird – St. John U.S.V.I. Charters

The meaning of seeing a blue bird in the virgin islands is considered to be a very good omen.  “A blue bird symbolizes joy and a positive outlook on life. Joy, Happiness and good fortune.” 

And that is exactly what Blu Bird Charter delivers.  The U.S. and the British Virgin Islands are a very special place, but to experience them from the comfort of a first-class, smooth and steady boat, makes the experience one you will never forget.  Every guest who is fortunate enough to spend time on our boat makes quite clear to us that it was the highlight of their island experience!  

Watch this video for a sample trip which took place in Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dike, and Maho Bay. With special feature of the Baths.

    So I took my wife on a romantic excursion. We hired Will and the Yellow Bird and it could not have been more perfect. We had the day catered with amazing food, very cool stops along the day and total privacy. We love St John.

    "We just wanted to take a minute and thank you for an amazing trip. Yes, the Villa was perfect. But even better was the professionalism end guidance of Will and Ausra. From the meet and greet to the stocked fridge with the extra touches, to being dropped off at the head of the reef bay trail and picked up at the beach by Will in his charter boat, we felt like we were in heaven. Everything was absolutely perfect. Effortless and relaxing. We will be back!" Thank you again, T&J;
