Located off the beach on Hansen Bay on St John’s remote East End you’ll find the newest and coolest place to enjoy some refreshing island drinks and fresh food. Lime Out Vi is the brainchild of Richard Baranowski, owner of Lime Inn ( a fan-favorite place to eat in Cruz Bay ). He, along with Dylan Buchalter, Dane Tarr, wives Chelsea and Val and chef Amaro Rivera have created a truly unique eats and drinks experience!
Since their launch they’ve been featured in articles by Lonely Planet, Coastal Living, St John Magazine and Travel + Leisure to name just a few!

Know before you go!
Lime Out asks that guests do not swim to the boat. Located 250 feet offshore, they ask that you reach them by vessel, be it paddle board, kayak, or dinghy. They have a floating bar for you to sit at once you arrive or you can get your cocktails / tacos delivered or pick them up yourself !
And yes, they do take credit cards ; )
