Opus is a 50 foot custom built trimaran which provides stability and comfort. The itinerary will take you to many islands, stopping at many different coves and beaches along the way. There are so many amazing things to do and islands to see! Your crew, Billy and Pat are down to earth, laid back and easy going and want you to relax and enjoy your vacation!
Many people come to the US Virgin Islands to get married and honeymoon. Billy is a non-denominational wedding officiant and provides wedding services on Opus or a beach of your choice.
Opus is based in St. Thomas for convenient access and availability for pick-up in either St. Thomas or Tortola, BVI. She is your perfect floating villa for as little or as long as you would like to stay with us.
Opus has three staterooms with separate entrances. Two double bed cabins and one v-berth queen bed cabin each feature a private en suite head/shower. The main salon is comfortable for relaxing, watching movies, reading and dining. The covered cockpit provides a welcome escape from the sun.
On deck, we provide all scuba dive/snorkel gear, fishing gear and chairs to relax in. The fighting chair on the aft deck is great for fishing or a favorite place to gather at sunset. There is a swim platform, ladder and fresh water shower provided. Whether you prefer to dine in the shaded cockpit, sunbathe on the trampolines, dance on the foredeck, or simply count the stars, Opus's large open deck provides unmatched flexibility.
There are many dive sites anywhere within the Sir Francis Drake Channel from Norman Island through Peter Island, Dead Chest, Salt, Cooper and Ginger Islands all the way up to Mountain Point on Virgin Gorda, including the Dog Islands, Guana, the Camanoe Islands, Marina Cay and Trellis Bay. Weather conditions and experience level of divers determines what islands we go to.
We offer a wide range of opportunities to begin and continue your dive education. From basic classes like Discover Scuba all the way to Professional Level courses like Dive Master and Assistant Instructor. Billy's level of experience will enhance your skills, safety and even your career! Billy is a PADI Master Instructor who has been scuba diving for almost 30 years. His knowledge, love of diving and patience insures that your dive experiences are safe and unforgettable!
