Nestled in the quiet waters of Round Bay, on the East End of St. John, floats the most delicious little taco boat. Aptly named, Lime Out VI, this little slice of heaven is the brainchild of multigenerational local families. Part owners, Chelsea and Richard Baranowski, also owners of the renowned Lime Inn restaurant in Cruz Bay, partnered with another young family to bring you a modern day beach bar, where single use plastics are from days of the past. This eco-friendly establishment is trailblazing past its adversaries by offering only stainless steel containers that you can either purchase or return for your deposit. Want to try one of their delicious tacos? Go ahead and take your time, savoring local ingredients as the likes of ceviche and Josephine’s local greens, all served in a biodegradable container. Seems like everything that leaves their boat is recyclable!
From the moment you lay eyes on the electric lime green boat, you know you’ve wandered upon an epic watering hole. Boats tie onto the port side, while the starboard side boasts a swim up bar and multiple floating toys…and floats shaped like limes, of course.
The craft cocktails are named after local families babies, the next generation. Drinks like the Coco Colada or the Aksel Rose to be exact. What a great legacy for those little ones!
And then there are the tacos. Let me tell you about the tacos. Holy Moly, they are some of the best tacos in the Caribbean. Choose from 11 specialty options, plenty of varied flavors, just enough spice and that perfect combo of island flair. Our personal favorite are the surf and turf and the ceviche.
Not sure what to get? Grab one of their waterproof menus and take your time.
Don’t feel like tying up or kayaking over? Anchor with your distance have your order dinghy-ed over to you by the likes of Dylan, LimeOutVI manager extraordinaire!
Accidentally drop something? The Lime Out crew is regularly doing dives to the bottom to clean up anything that may have dropped. They are great stewards of their environment and would love to encourage you to do the same.
Anyway you slice it, LimeOutVI makes for a great day on the water. It’s the USVI’s only floating bar and a truly unique destination. Plus, you can take home some of their awesome merchandise!
Book a charter with Salty Daze USVI to get you there!
