boating US Virgin Islands no passport

Often times, when people think about booking a boat day during their vacation on St. Thomas or St. John, the first thing that comes to mind is exploring the islands of the neighboring BVI. And while the British Virgin Islands DO have some incredible boat day stops to visit, it’s not always the best option for all groups. Whether there are people in your group without passports (they are required for entry into the BVI), or if you simply don’t have the time or desire to clear in and out of Customs & Immigration on your boat day, you still have options.

In recent years, the USVI boating scene has gotten even more exciting. Here are just a few iconic spots that you can stop at during your boat day in the US Virgin Islands – no passport required!


1) Pizza Pi VI at Christmas Cove

This floating pizza bar is located in the protected bay of Christmas Cove – the perfect spot for a snorkel stop followed by a slice of the most delicious pizza you’ll have in the Virgin Islands. Pro tip: the Mad Mushroom is our fav.

2) Lime Out at Coral Harbor, St. John

A floating taco bar – need we say more? This relatively new addition to the St. John scene is only accessible by boat and an excellent stop for floating and limin’ in the crystal clear waters. Taco Tuesday never looked this cool.


3) Dinghy’s Beach Bar & Grill at Honeymoon Beach, Water Island

Water Island is a must-see in the USVI – it’s a small, residential island with a community you’ll wish you were a part of. Grab some food and drinks with your toes in the sand and enjoy their abundant beach amenities.

4) Lovango Beach Club, Lovango Cay

Want more of a private island resort experience? Then Lovango Beach Club is your spot! Between the great food and drinks, water views extending from the infinity pool, and tunes, the vibe is right for the lux pool day you’ve been dreaming of.


These are just a few of the great boating day stops accessible within the US Virgin Islands. There are plenty of other cute beach bars, restaurants, snorkel spots, and dive sites to check out. If you want to stay in the US and not bring your passport out boating, you will absolutely have an incredible experience within the waters of America’s Paradise.
