  • To our dear friends – Ian, Diane and Rico - This has been the very best family vacation and it is all because of the 3 of you! Thank you for always making us feel right at home! From the amazing meals, the hospitality and adventures – we love you guys! Thank you for loving on our kiddos – this will always be their first memories on a boat and you have all taught them so much – knot tying, napkin folding, cooking, underwater creatures, what plants not to stand under when it is raining, the list goes on! You guys are everything! You are truly a one in a lifetime crew. Until next time… enjoy these beautiful waters and safe travels! SL
  • Hi Amanda: Thought I would give you a quick note letting you know we all had a GREAT time aboard Suite Life. It moved to the top of our list of charter experiences. If you ever need a reference you are welcome to contact me directly. Thank you for your help. Thanks for all the pre-planning and the excellent hospitality that was matched by top-notch dining and activity options. All of us agreed that it was our best charter yet. The efforts of the crew made for a very relaxing and entertaining week. We are already missing the crew and our time aboard. Thanks again for everything. JF
  • Oh, my goodness, Trina, it was fabulous!!!! I really can’t imagine a more incredible experience.  I don’t think the Queen is provided better service, food, or amenities. Yet all in a very friendly, comfortable environment. It was everything we had ever hoped a charter experience would be. We WILL be scheduling another charter through you. Thank you so much for making this opportunity available! My best
  • Trina, Thanks for checking in - I wanted to wait until I returned from the trip to let you know my comments. I will offer my comments below regarding the trip and crew, mainly as constructive input for you on future trips. Martin and Cari-Mari did a great job of attending to our needs and making sure we had what we needed - mostly. Their personalities are well suited for being a crew and they are very easy going. They quickly adjusted their "preferences" to accommodate our desires and needs (such as using the air conditioning in the evening). However, the one issue (while not a big deal - did create some lost time and angst). On ALL past charters I have been on someone from the crew either joined us when we went ashore or accompanied us when we snorkeled - either in the tender alongside of us or actually in the water helping locate fish or other interesting things to see.We have been on numerous charters and we both recognized the lack of service. I will admit - that we are both spoiled and are used to over the top service, so the problem could lie with us. All in all - a very successful trip. Hope this little bit of critique may help.Thanks for checking in.
  • Martha, The yacht was beautiful and the staff was very professional and friendly! I wanted to ask you if you can help us to find a yacht sometime in December. We wanted to explore Virgin Islands (or maybe you can recommend something else). Best,
  • Hi Reia and Sally, I just wanted to say thank you for organizing La Manguita charter and let you know that we had fabulous time. The crew was the most professional, and the yacht was so well taken care of. They make great food too. I would say this was the best managed yacht I've seen. Thank you again for arranging the wonderful charter.
  • Dear Sally, It was really fantastic, my friends are astonished, the captain Darrin is a great man, even though he is very young, and Desire put love in each dish. We feel very lucky of our choice of Mimzy. Thank you Sally, we are really happy. S/Y MIMZY / March 26 - Apr 2 / Britsh Virgin Islands
  • Hi Sally, The trip was simply fantastic, start to finish!  I can't say enough about how well we were taken care of by Ben and Elizabeth.  They were lovely hosts and provided top notch food, drinks and service!  The boat was beautiful, clean and very well equipped.  Ben gave us daily suggestions on where to go and what and to do and they were always spot on.  And the food, OMG it was like eating every meal in a 5 star restaurant - healthy, delicious and something different every night.  Elizabeth was superb!  The weather was also perfect, though I hesitate to give the crew full credit for that. In short, we feel we really lucked out with the selection of the Sea Anemone as it would be impossible to believe a better choice could have been made.  This boat and crew are the best! I'll let you know when we're headed back! S/Y SEA ANEMONE / Mar 12 - 20 2017 / BVI
  • Trina, everyone enjoyed themselves.  The boat was perfect and the captain and crew were some of the best I have been around. I would definitely recommend this boat and crew to anyone else.  I suspect we will be contacting you next year to do it again. M/Y COCKTAILS / March / British Virgin Islands
  • Amanda, We loved the trip. Mischa and Lenny were a great crew, the perfect pair. Loved the Ohana, fantastic boat for 6 people. Food was fabulous. Overall satisfaction was a 10 on a scale of 1-10, we don't have any suggestions on how it could have been better. Hope to travel with them again. The diving worked out very well, rendezvous diving was fine. Given the amount of diving we wanted to do, 3 days, we did not need tanks etc. on board. Certification process for two of our group was just fine. Blue Water Divers (first 2 days) were better than Jost Van Dyke dives. But that's really just about dive sites. We'd definitely do this again. Just like to do different things so next time, we'd probably do the Bahamas. M/Y OHANA / March 12 – 19 / British Virgin Islands
  • Hi Trina! How are you? I just wanted to thank you for helping with our trip! We had a fantastic time!  The crew was awesome. We really enjoyed them. A trip of a lifetime! Thanks! S/Y TWIN March 6 - 13 / British Virgin Islands
  • Hi Martha, Amazing!!   We have been to the BVI’s countless times, but never like this.  The Lady Sharon Gale is a very well kept motor yacht and the perfect size for our group.  The scenery in the BVI’s is always beautiful.  What really separated this trip from many others was the crew.   Captain Mike, Maria, Ian, Milan and Lydia are the BEST at what they do.  They love their roles and people too.  We wanted to take them all to Atlanta with us as we friended each of them.   Cannot say enough good about this whole experience and we will be back on the Lady Sharon Gale again!!! Thank you for connecting us Martha.  You too are really good at what you do. M/Y SHARON GALE / March / British Virgin Islands
  • Hi Amanda How are you? We didn't speak after our trip but I just like to tell you that was fantastic, really a dream. Eduardo, Maria and Lenta are wonderful people and we loved spend this week together.  Thank you. S/Y MAGEC / Jan 4 – 11 2017 / BVI
  • Hi Martha, As we mentioned to you on the phone all was GREAT!!! Great crew and great boat! Again thank you for the recommendation. M/Y MISCHEIF / December 27th - Jan 3rd / Leeward islands and British Virgin Islands
  • Dear Martha, Happy New Year to you too! Everything  went OK, except that I got sick the day we left (a strong winter flu) and , as I recovered, my wife fell sick too. Bad luck!  As to the rest we have been pretty happy with the boat (which is OK for 4 guests, I doubt it for more),  except for the navigation plotter in the cockpit which was not working. Excellent was the skipper: even if he was new to the boat and to the area, he proved very effective with some repairs and with planning the itinerary. He is a really nice guy and a good company. I would like also to thank you for your assistance all along. Well done! Have our best regards. SY CONTINGENCY / Dec 24 - Jan 3rd / Virgin Islands
  • Nick, As Cameroon has said , it was indeed a great 10 day charter and I am sure the rest of our party would like to join Sue and I to add “due to an exceptional crew – who worked long hours to high standards , were pleasant with nothing being too much trouble.  The food was exceptional and wine was spot on every time . Nicolai , their crew member , added a great dimension in terms of service .He worked tirelessly , with great charm and was a fantastic teacher on the wake board. The fishing aspect was a superb bonus enjoyed by all. SY TIGER LILY / 10 day New year / Antigua & British Virgin Islands
  • Amanda, We could use those "warm' regards - it was -1 when we got home last night!  Our holiday on McGregor exceeded our expectations; which says a lot considering how excited we were for this vacation!  The McGregor was beautiful - so lovely and well maintained.  The pictures of the interior of the boat didn't do justice to the gorgeous wood! We had a blast and Tim did a great job of helping us to set an itinerary each day.  The girls loved diving with Tim and snorkeling was definitely everyone's favorite!  Tim and Julie both went above and beyond and made us feel really special. Julie's food was out of this world!  She did a great job of serving meals that everyone loved - and they were healthy!!  As a family with 2 in college (and full-time jobs during the summer) and 1 busy in high school we really don't share meals very often.  Meal time was my favorite time - we enjoyed delicious food that everyone loved and we ate together (AND I didn't have to cook!). At the end of our stay Tim asked us if we had any suggestions.  We thought hard about it and we honestly couldn't think of a single thing that would have made our trip more special (well, Libby did say she couldn't get enough of Julie's bread:).  My only frustration was my own fault... I'm ashamed to say I over packed.  If only I stuck to your packing list!! Thank you once again for all your help.  We look forward to working with you again as well! M/Y McGregor / New Years / British Virgin Islands
  • Amanda, Thanks for checking in. We are home safe and sound after a most wonderful vacation. Tara, Grand and Tyler were beyond fantastic! Please let the owners know what a wonderful crew they have found. A life time of memories :) We are already talking about when we can go again…although it would be hard to top our experience with Tara, Grant and Tyler! I will be in touch and would love your suggestions on other locations to sail around the same time of year in other parts of the world. We are hooked. Take care and Happy New Year! - FOXY LADY / British Virgin Islands  / December 27 – January 3
  • Hi Amanda, The charter was an amazing experience.  The perfect celebration for a 60th B-day.  Naom and Dalit were fantastic.  I don't think it would be possible for them to provide a better experience.  They were kind, patient, engaging, fun, concerned, thorough, and accommodating, I'm running out of superlatives! The food was great, the itinerary was great, the yacht was great, and even the weather cooperated to a certain extent.  I asked the group on the last day if they would have changed anything, and they said no.  I can only give you positives about the cruise, because there really were no negatives.  We are already talking about a return visit, and would definitely plan the cruise around Naom and Dalit's availability and their yacht..   Thank you for all of your help.  We will definitely steer our family and friends to you because of your excellent service. Thanks again. PART 2 of the group:  Hello Amanda,Last week I and my husband and eight friends partook of a weeklong sailing trip along with our hosts, Noam and Dalit aboard the Alive catamaran.  We cannot say enough good things about those two and their professionalism, warmth, immense talent, their concern for each of us, the food!, their vast knowledge and skills, the beautiful boat that they lovingly care for and invite each of us to do the same, their knowledge of local history and trivia, their loving care and respect for the ocean and islands, their humor and incredible patience, and how they sought to accommodate all of our needs and strengths.  We all fell in love with them and they made sure we had a wonderful time and partook of all the available activities.  What an experience we won't soon forget.  What a beautiful part of the planet.  The whole package - boat, captain and co-captain, food and location made for the perfect, fantastic vacation.  Thank you so much!!! S/Y ALIVE / British Virgin Islands / July 30 – Aug 6
  • Martha, Vacoa was just great from all angles. Great team, fantastic skipper! Incredible food and super nice service. Adding to this the perfect route visiting all the BVI Islands with best snorkeling spots and even ecofriendly fishing (Barracuda released). I am a monohull fanatic but this catamaran has all the right metrics. Thanks for the recommendation. S/Y VACOA / British Virgin Islands / July
  • Amanda, Thanks for your message. We had a AMAZING trip. Donald and Audrey made us feel completely welcomed back! We all as a group really connected with Kyle last year and didn't think anyone could surpass him. Our group all agreed that Caitlyn did a great job! She is very sweet, hard working and has such a way about her. Especially for us being her 4 charter. We can be a handful!! Audrey's culinary skills can not be beat! I have been on the treadmill since my return! We all decided the weight gain was worth it for a week of her cooking! The presentation never fails to impress! I think a few of our friends on the trip are fussy eaters, and all they do is rave!! Every morning when I came up for my coffee Audrey was in the kitchen with a big "Good Morning" welcome for me.  What a way to start my day!

We have chartered several times in the BVIs, and our experience with VCY was the absolute best. The boat was in great condition and the service start to finish was fabulous. We will be back!

Our charter yacht was nearly new and well maintained. VCY was responsive whenever we had questions during our charter as well. Highly recommended!

"Best vacation we have ever taken!"

VCY was fantastic!! They answered every question, helped with all the travel details. Booked us taxis to and from the airport and even got us reservations for a special birthday dinner. We will absolutely be back!

"Exceptional Experience with 1st Class Crew!"

Highly recommend this organization… they were even able to accommodate a last minute itinerary change due to tropical storm “Beryl”!

"Best Week of My Life!"

Virgin motor yachts lined us up with a great Captain and assisted with all the details in preparation. I am already planning to come back in November.

"All Around 1st Class Customer Service"

Our 3rd year with Virgin Motor Yachts and we are starting to plan our trip for next year. An excellent vacation covering 7 islands over the 10 days.

"Search No Further VCY Is It!"

If I were to write everything good about our experience with VCY…I would need another week on their CAT on the BVI!

"Better Than We Could Have Ever Imagined"

From the planning stage to last day of our trip, we could not have asked for any better experience. Alexia and crew were wonderful to deal with.

Amazing customer service. Highly recommend VCY ahead of the other two big companies on the island with very little customer service.

Ultimate Guide to a BVI Yacht Charter

Learn everything you need to know about a bvi yacht charter, ultimate guide to a bvi yacht charter.

A BVI yacht charter is a great yacht charter destination for everyone to enjoy. The BVI has beautiful white sandy beaches to enjoy, blue waters to swim in and picturesque islands to explore.

On a BVI yacht charter , there is something relaxing for everyone, from water sports to restaurants serving fresh cocktails and delicious dishes.

BVI Yacht Charter Guide

Located in the Caribbean’s Leeward Islands, this former haunt of pirates, including the infamous Blackbeard, is now host to one of the world’s premier sailing destinations.

In this guide, we hope to give you an insight into everything you need to know about booking and going on a BVI yacht charter .

Your Guide to a BVI Yacht Charter

Weather on a bvi yacht charter, wind conditions on a bvi yacht charter, best time to go to the bvi, bvi is a top sailing destination, bvi itineraries, places not to miss on a bvi yacht charter, best time to book a bvi yacht charter.

Weather on a BVI Yacht Charter. On a BVI yacht charter, the weather is consistent throughout the year with the average temperature between December and April is a high of 28c (83f) and an average low of 24c (75f), between May and November, the average high is 31c (88f) and the average low is 27c (80f).

Hurricane Season. Between June and November is considered hurricane season with an increased likelihood of rain chances and even hurricanes. Hurricanes historically commonly appear in September. But throughout this time of year, the weather and wind can be unsettled varying from day to day. While you can take a BVI yacht charter within this time, considerations should be taken and knowledge of changes in wind patterns and settle locations.

On a BVI Yacht Charter. On a BVI yacht charter you can find out more about weather forecasts and weather alerts on the following channels;

  • ZBVI 780 kHz AM – 8.00 a.m. daily
  • VHF WX 03 – (not available in all areas)
  • WOSO 1030 Khz AM – every hour daily

BVI Yacht Charter. Steady trade winds and line-of-sight navigation between the islands make a BVI yacht charter great for everyone. The winter months (between November and January) provide a great sailing break with warm weather and a north-east wind at approximately 15 to 20 knots. During the Christmas period winds can reach between 25 and 30 knots, calming back down in February in an east direction. By the beginning of June, the winds change to a south-east direction at 10 – 15 knots. September and October produce the calmest conditions but the weather can be unpredictable. By November the wind has settled once again to 15-20 knots before the cycle starts again. On A BVI charter, the seas generally have between 3 and 4ft waves.

Easy Navigation.  The small tidal range (12in/ 30cm) and the sheltered waters mean that even novice sailors can enjoy island hopping from Tortola on a BVI yacht charter, although many more experienced sailors also travel to the islands each year to relax and lazily crisscross the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Passages between the islands can take as little as half an hour and rarely more than three hours.

What is the best time to go on a BVI yacht charter? Any time of year is a great time to go on a BVI yacht charter, depending on the individual’s availability. The high season takes place over the winter months from December to March. Low season is between April and June with fewer crowds and in April they have the famous BVI Spring Regatta. During hurricane season the risk of a hurricane is very low and this is often the quietest time to take a BVI yacht charter.

Top Sailing Destination. The promise of steady trade winds, sailing in limited development of restaurants and marinas, plus line-of-sight navigation between the 33 islands, that still make the BVI a true sailor’s favorite; windy, but not too windy, and never far from a rum punch. The BVI has opportunities for excellent sailing, superb weather, and memories which will last a lifetime. You are sure to find perfect sailing conditions to suit everyone’s desires on a BVI yacht charter.

BVI Yacht Charter. When you are on a BVI yacht charter, you can create an itinerary depending on your desires and requirements. If you have a skipper, your skipper can recommend islands to explore, marinas to moor in and restaurants to visit. They also have expert knowledge of how to book marinas and what needs to be done in advance and what places you can just arrive at without pre-booking.

BVI Sailing Itinerary. BVI has an abundance of top sailing locations, the very best snorkeling spots, and impossibly gorgeous cays, there is something for everyone. We have created a BVI Sailing Itinerary, to allow sailors to experience some of the best sites on a BVI yacht charter.

Amazing Sailing Experiences

Our amazing customers.

I didn't think sailing with my family would be so much fun...

Sailing for the first time.


Everything went smooth, the paper processing, special requests and the specs of tht check-in procedure. Boat was also in good shape, so no complaints and a worry free holiday...

We had a great experience with booking through sailchecker.

Informative and looked for the best value for our family. Very good customer service on this side and in Greece. Great boat and skipper...

Fantastic holiday from start to finish.

They were very responsive and very quick to answer questions via email and instant chat. They had extensive knowledge of the area...

We will most definitely use their services for our next bareboat sailing vacation.

Kirsten W.

Sailchecker were professional from start to finish - and were awesome dealing with a problem! Our first Yacht had serious issues and sail checker helped us to resolve it...

They are easy to deal with, straightforward and honest and I would recommend them to anyone planning a charter holiday.

Kat, H.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Kate and her colleagues at Sailchecker have performed brilliantly. They have been considerate and highly efficient in re-organising our Turkey charter and also provided lots of assistance in getting our Yacht Security Deposit insurance policy transferred to match our revised charter dates.

Truly worthy of a 5 star rating!

Alan, R.

Would I go sailing again? OMG yes! Sailing is the perfect family holiday. Boys loved the activities, I enjoy relaxing as well... arranged a sailing cruise her family of 2 sons, daughter & hubby in the BVI with their own.


It was sail in the day… party at night. We couldn't have wanted a better skipper or a Spring Break!  Good times...

Arranged for 6 friends to sail Spring Break in the British Virgin Islands for under $500 each.


All bookings and confirmations was always accurate with no delays. Our boat was also fabulously maintained and the Skipper new the area extremely well...

Everything was down to the tee.

  • Can I fly into the BVI for my charter? While flights in and out of St. Thomas remain the most popular pick, typically due to preferred routes, flight times, and pricing, our other suggested option is to take a commercial flight in and out of San Juan, Puerto Rico with a connecting flight to the BVI and back. We will assist with connecting flight recommendations or with private charter flight reservations either from Puerto Rico to the BVI and back or from St. Thomas to the BVI and back.
  • What’s the best way to get to the BVI and back from St. Thomas? Many of our clients take private water taxis from St. Thomas to the BVI and back for their charters. While more expensive than a commercial ferry, this option offers a faster and far more seamless, luxury experience. Once your flights are confirmed, we’ll be happy to assist with water taxi reservations.
  • If I fly into St. Thomas, can my charter start and end there? While the crewed fleet was able to offer St. Thomas ports and a BVI itinerary through July 2023, crewed charters that occur in the BVI after October 2023 will require a BVI pick-up and drop-off.

Royal Cape 57ft - 2020

Barefeet retreat, yacht description.

Barefeet Retreat is a new 2020 model from the South African company Royal Cape. These yachts are well known for their light and airy interiors and really great headroom throughout.

Layout is 5 queen cabins – great for families and 8 adult guests would be perfect. All the cabins have ensuite bathrooms with separate shower stalls. Gorgeous light wood is used throughout the interior and, combined with muted grey upholstery, the whole effect is one of comfort and style.

The salon and galley are integral and large patio glass doors open so this area melds easily into the cockpit. Upstairs there is a flybridge seating area, great for enjoying sunsets.

bvi yacht charter reviews

Our personal opinion

Why book Barefeet Retreat – FLEXIBILITY – Barefeet Retreat can take 10 people, but also is a larger catamaran that is competitively priced for just four guests. There is a really good selection of water toys along with a roomy outside area. This 2020 boat is so pristine and along with a great crew who go above and beyond ensuring their guests have an amazing time, completes this great package.

Such a variety. The food was 5 star. I felt it was very healthy also beautiful presentation. They did have some great signature drinks. Jenn and Bree were great. Professional but also so pleasant and friendly. Very knowledgeable and had great suggestions. Would love to sail with them again.

“Creating lifelong memories is a special treasure that so many of us take for granted until it is too late. However, the week we spent on Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn and Breezy Cooking will always hold a special place in our hearts and our entire group is excited to be back on the boat with them again in the future. When a trip ends with genuine hugs and tears, that sums up that not only did everyone very much enjoy themselves, but we all made a special lifelong bond that cannot be forgotten. First, Breezy Cooking’s cuisine and special beverages would rival any fine restaurant, however the hospitality from Jenn and Bree make the trip even more special. Let me tell you, these two ladies worked hard the entire trip to make everything perfect for us, but they always were enjoying themselves, had smiles on their faces and had this contagious positive view on life that continues to resonate with us. These two special ladies are making the world a better place purely from being in it and spreading their infectious positivity to everyone who is around them. The boat’s layout was perfect, the beds were comfortable, everything was immaculate and clean and with scenic background accompanied with our new found family in Jenn and Bree made for a perfect trip that we will never forget and hope to duplicate soon. “

bvi yacht charter reviews

Bree and Jen are like the dynamic duo. Their personalities and dedication to a great charter, I imagine will be hard to find again. The food was amazing and Bree got it right every meal. Jenn was not only an awesome captain, but a great Scuba instructor as well. From the moment we stepped on the Yacht, the two of them really made us feel at home, comfortable, relaxed and in a mindset to have a great time. We only hope to bring our children back with us next time. p.s They found us front row mat position for “After Irma Band”……try that StubHub!

bvi yacht charter reviews

Our stay was beyond comfortable because Captain Jenn and Chef Bree exceeded all our expectations and truly brought our preferences to life! With children on board, we were amazed at the endless activities and constant attention that they provided to help us feel at home. Captain Jenn amazed us with her skill and knowledge, but also was warm and patient with our gang. And, Chef Bree is a ray of sunshine! She prepared five star meals for every seating and amazed us with daily cocktails of the day and delicious desserts! The crew duo serving Barefeet Retreat are so warm and caring that you’ll leave with 2 new family members! And, the boat was kept immaculate and stocked with water toys. We are ready to book again!

“You have arrived, do yourself a favor and stop searching now, you will not find a better combination of craft and crew than this. Sailing aboard Barefeet Retreat with Captain Jenn & Chef Abrye is as good as it gets. We truly cannot think of a single thing that we would have changed during the entire week we spent. This newer yacht is very roomy, has all the comforts of home, and plenty of covered space for all to enjoy. Jenn & Abrye are intelligent, skilled, and kind, both with great sense’s of humor and delightful wit. What ever your taste buds desire, Chef Abrye can make it happen, every meal was fantastic and full of flavor. I think this lady is the next big thing just waiting to be discovered, so amazingly creative. Captain Jenn is a divemaster, accomplished sailor, knowledgeable hiker, and a confident leader. You just know that you are in good hands with Jenn at the helm. So finish up your To Do List, pack lightly, and get ready to worry about nothing at all, and have one of the most wonderful weeks of your life.”

“We have no feedback on how to make the experience more positive – it was perfection!!! As first time charter yacht guests, we were blown away by the crew, food, itinerary, activities and boat! From the bubbles when we boarded the yacht to the send off cocktails when we departed, it was truly incredible! We have already put in holds on the Barefeet Retreat for a future booking!”

bvi yacht charter reviews

Because of Bree, our yacht became a home, which is more than any of us every thought was possible in a short week. Per Bree’s request early on in the trip, I’ve wracked my brain to find some constructive feedback related to her efforts. I’ve come up short. Bree commands respect in everything she does and never waivered even for a single moment in her total commitment to our healthy, safety, and happiness. Bree’s level of poise is second to none, and warrants repeated recognition.

Simply amazing! Great cook, such a fun part of our group and a really kind of caring person. Bree was the best!

Amazing, the dishes that she created for us were unbelievable. Catered to our likes, dislikes and food allergies every meal. Also her energy brought the group up each day.

Breezy was incredible, she kept us well fed the entire trip with amazing meals. Going into the trip I expected to have pb&j but was happily surprised by the delicious, inventive meals she came up with. I absolutely loved the risotto with Gorgonzola sauce she made and have already googled a recipe to make at home!

The food was some of the best I’ve ever had. So amazing and great company!

bvi yacht charter reviews

BREEZY!! Couldn’t imagine this trip without her. Her energy and incredible restaurant quality meals continued to leave us picking our jaws off the floor. Food outstanding every time. She also saved my life!

bvi yacht charter reviews

Jenn was a phenomenal skipper, and was a big part of why we booked the route we did and why we requested her. She provided amazing recommendations, remained professional at all times, but was ready to have fun. If I could give her an 11, I would. 100% chance we’ll end up sailing again with Jenn as our skipper.

Rendezvous diving

bvi yacht charter reviews

If your crewed charter yacht does not offer onboard diving then fear not, rendezvous diving can be arranged.

So what is Rendezvous diving?

A local dive company will pick you up direct from your charter yacht at a pre-determined location and take you for a one- or two-tank dive to experience the BVI below the water. This is an excellent option if only a couple of guests wish to dive or can work equally as well if all your group are interested. If your charter yacht offers minimal onboard diving, then rendezvous diving can also work if you wanted to add a few more dives during your charter.

Rendezvous diving is at additional cost, payable locally. The dive company provides all gear.
