view web site ›'s insider take:

Body shots, temporary tattoos, synchronized shooters via an ingenious contraption called the “shotski,” impromptu nakedness. This floating bar proves that the further you get from the mainland, the lower your inhibitions. Captained by head bartender, Zeus, Willie T cruises nowhere fast. The partying pirate ship simply swings on anchor in Norman Cay's Bight, attracting yachties and those landlubbers who hitch a ride on the bar's supply boat, the Wet Willie (284-496-6416; leaves Tortola at 5 pm; back whenever the bar closes.). To soak up the rum, the galley offers up a good selection of grilled and fried pub grub (conch fritters, fish sandwiches, burgers). Even though the skinny-dipping skydives off the stern rail have recently been outlawed, the atmosphere can get decidedly PG-13 to R after dark, so the sensitive best abandon ship early.

Opens daily at noon. Reservations for lunch and dinner suggested.
