Easter with the Angels – Angels Rest

Angels Rest

Hi everyone, happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter yesterday for those of you who celebrate. I had one of the best holidays ever, and I wanted to tell you all about it.

So a friend and I were taking a nice cruise out east yesterday when we happened upon Angels Rest in Haulover Bay. For years, I’ve been trying to catch up with Captain Peter and the Angels Rest, but our paths never officially crossed until yesterday. So naturally the second I saw him, all of our other Easter plans got put on the back burner. We parked the Jeep, grabbed some cash and hopped in the water.

For those of you unfamiliar with Angel’s Rest, it’s a very cool floating bar. But what makes it even cooler is Captain Peter himself. Captain Peter built Angels Rest a few years back and it’s the only boat on St. John that has a liquor license. It’s a comfy little spot with a bar with seating for about seven or so people , a glass table with chairs for those looking to relax while watching the critters swim by through the circle cut out in the floor below, two beds in the event that you need a little catnap and a very comfortable rooftop sun deck for those looking to chill or work on their tans.

You need to see this for yourself. Check it out this little video we took:

Angels Rest goes out a few times a week (when Peter feels like it) and it can be found either at Haluover or Vie’s. If you’re on island and looking to find him, give him a ring. You can see his number on his “business cards” below:

    Thanks Mr & Mrs NOSJ,

    How close does he get to the beach? We might try to catch him at Haulover but there is just too much drama and stress where there isn’t supposed to be over on the Hansen side. Don’t need it. Don’t want it.

      Yes, lots of drama over there. He was about 100 feet off shore. Easy swim out.

    I didn’t think drama was allowed on island! But I’ll take the bait. What drama?
