You can get hungry after exploring cave, and the Bight offers you two restaurants to choose from. Learn more by visiting Maui Snorkel Charters. The first restaurant is the William Thornton Floating Bar and. This reproduction of a 93 ‘top-sailed schooner, affectionately called the “Willie T,” is named after a native of BVI, William Thornton II, the builder of the US Capital. Opened in June 1985, this one-of-a-kind “bistro on the briny” is likely to take credit for some of the Bight ‘s fame, owing to the tales of many wild party nights aboard. There’s still a huge lunch crowd with a relaxed atmosphere and things really start hopping in the afternoon. Typically, there are hundreds of dinghies and day sailboats tied off her dock on the ship’s portside and the owner and bartender, Ewan and Zeus normally raft on the starboard side of the Wet Willy supply boat. Before 2006, when an incident brought the “official” custom to an end, people of all ages would enjoy jumping off the poop deck atop the bar area. Many of the young ladies picked up a free “Willie T” t-shirt if they jumped naked, attracting a crowd of enthusiastic supporters at all times. With ski shots and body shots heating up the bar later in the day it still gets pretty rowdy today. If you’re looking for something a little more civilized and family-oriented, head to Pirate’s Bar and Restaurant on the Bight’s southeast corner, where you’ll find a lovely beach with picnic tables and a dinghy dock for your convenience. They provide great lunch and dinner food, and the BVI ‘s best Bushwhacker. Healthy snorkelling at the south end of the beach is possible on the sea grass or on the reef. Tell a walk from Pirates’ beach to the top of Norman Hill, a / k / a Spy Glass Hill, when ashore, on the dirt track. Pirates used this hill to keep an eye out for treasure galleons. The Sir Frances Drake Channel and surrounding areas will have a stunning 360 ° panoramic view. Be sure to wear shoes, as the vegetation is scratchy and rough.
