The picturesque granite boulders outcropping at The Baths are unlike anything else in the world. You can explore the boulders, enjoy the beach, or enjoy a swim and snorkel. Definitely one of the best tourist destinations of the BVI.
The Cathedral Room
Explore the boulders and caverns that make up a maze that leads to secret rock pools and the famous Cathedral Room - a natural pool inside a small cave. There are these natural pools all through the Baths. After you explore, relax on the beautiful Devil's Bay beach, or do some swimming and snorkeling.
Snorkeling the baths is another fantastic way to explore the boulders. The view below the surface is feels like stepping through a looking glass to another world.
You'll hear the clicking of sea life, following curious colorful fish, and maybe a jellyfish or two.
Mother Whale & Baby
Another landmark to look for is the whale and baby whale while exploring the rocks. See if you can find this, you have found it!
Imagine the baby whale sunbathing!
If there is time in your day on your way back, you can stop at The Aquarium, a snorkeling spot that is named for reasons you will find as you snorkel the area. To ensure that there is enough time, you can bring your own lunch aboard. You would just need to notify us ahead of time so that we can provide extra ice.
