I was born in the British Virgin Islands. Definitely visit Jost Van Dyke (White Bay), you may also want to visit Tortola. Virgin Gorda is a little far from St. John, but once you go to Jost Van Dyke, Tortola is not far.

We went on a motor boat tour to Virgin Gorda. A day sail to Virgin Gorda would leave little time to actually see the island because of custom regulations in the US. We had a great day on Stormy Petrel/Pirates Penny which can easily take 8 passengers out. This is a guided tour around STJ to Virgin Gorda. It includes a tour of The Baths where the guide tells you the scientific info about them as well as some of the stories. They pointed out formations such as The Lions Head and The Whale and took you off the main path up and around the rocks to a ledge for jumping down into the ocean. If you are less adventurous they had another route. There was a lunch stop on Cooper island and we were lucky enough to have a stop at The Indians for snorkeling. Very professional and friendly crew. They have been doing this tour for many years. Here is link to a web site for more information:
