In Feb. 2017 while visiting Jost Van Dyke on a boat charter we met Dale who was trying to start up a floating spa in White Bay. Then hurricane Irma hit and this plan was put on hold. We returned Feb 2019 and saw Dale and saw that his floating spa became a reality- Ocean Spa BVI. You can find it moored in front of Ivan's . He was able to build his floating spa from salvaged lumber from the Hurricane. We booked massages and have to say they were Awesome. Here is an article on his Spa. https://www.coastalliving.com/travel/bvi-floating-spa-caribbean It was such a great experience!

I was with Marsh on this trip and the one in 2017 when the spa was still just Dale's dream. His story is an inspiring one, and the massage was wonderful. Attached is a picture of the floating spa taken from the hill between Great Harbor and White Bay. So glad we got to do this.

The floating spa looks great. I wish it was possible that the spa could be safely moored without using a great mooring ball.

The Spa is great!

Did it in January when we were at the Villa. Loved the floor portholes that were opened up to enjoy the underwater views! If you are landbased it requires a swim or a dinghy ride to get there.

Exactly what was needed on Jost, IMO.

We wish Dale and his group great success!
