Photos From 2nd Annual Castaway Winter Beach Bash: Part 2

Castaway Winter Beach Bash

Here we go! As promised here are another set of photos taken during the Castaway Winter Beach Bash at Bolongo Bay Resort on St. Thomas. I want to go back! Badly.

This set of photos takes us to St. John where we spent a day touring the island in Jeep Wranglers. We went off the beaten path (almost way off) to find the true charm of St. John. We visited Cafe Concordia, The Tourist Trap, Skinny Legs and then raced back to the ferry dock nearly missing the boat.

You will also see photos from our sunset cruise aboard the Heavenly Days. We were suppose to sail through Charlotte Amalie harbor but the rain kept us out to sea. No worries though, there was plenty of rum punch, Mishka flowing through the speakers and there’s nothing like being pushed through the water by the Caribbean winds.

I’ll post a lost more photos of the trip on the RumShopRyan Facebook page later today.

Mishka playing on the speakers had everyone dancing.


Such a great time!

There will be a 3rd Annual Castaway Getaway but I think we are  planning it during the Summer of 2014. Prices for hotel and flights are cheaper during the Summer months. We are also thinking about getting a big name musical act to come play for us at Iggies Beach Bar. I won’t say any names yet, but it will be…wait for it….LEGENDARY!

Like I said, more photos will be put up on the RumShopRyan Facebook page later today. I’m also working on some videos that tie it all together.

    Awesome photos. Bolongo Bay Resort really looks like they have the real total package with the sail’s, etc. I really want to go there soon and/or on the next Beach Bash!

    Hi Randall, yeah she went back on stage later that night to get more. I hope she doesn’t read that! Would love to have you on the next one my friend. Also trying to plan a sailing trip, renting a couple cats with a group and doing some island hopping. I’ll keep you posted. Cheers!

    Looks like you all had a blast! Just booked my 4th trip to STJ…my favorite place on earth! However, if anything could make me want to stay on St Thomas, it would be your Bolongo Bashes. But you might want to think about having it in May or early June so you don’t run the risk of the “H” word ruining things.
    Thanks for posting all the pics, Ryan. You’re the best!

    Thanks IslandNana! Have fun on your trip to STJ! That too is my favorite Island. Would love to have you on the next Castaway Beach Bash, and yes we will do our best to avoid that H season. Cheers!
