Can anyone recommend a nice reasonable hotel in downtown Toronto? The prices post Covid seem pretty high.

Yesterday at 07:57 PM Best Time To Book Flights [by RickandJulie]
So..............my wife and I are having a discussion about when is the best time to book airline tickets for our trip to SXM next April. I know we have a lot of seasoned travel schedulers here so I'm asking how far in advance of the trip (in general) are you most likely to get the lowest fares.

Yesterday at 07:53 PM Feedback on itinerary [by CaptRichard]
Good day everyone,

Planning a bareboat trip on a Moorings 4500 (4 couples - 50's/60's). Our last one was in 2010 so I'm looking for feedback/comments/alternatives on the following tentative itinerary.

Half of the crew is planning to fly in on the 11th and sleep either at Village Cay or the Moorings' hotel (comments seem to favor Village Cay). Comments?

Sunday Jan 12th
- Crew meets at the Moorings' base in the am - boat scheduled to be ready by noon (island time so might slip by an hour or two).
- If ready early enough, we'll sail across to Peter Island otherwise we'll spend the night on site (is Charlie's recommended?).

Monday Jan 13th
- Early sail to Trellis Bay for full moon party (will be our 1st one).
- Trellis Market Bar and Grill for buffet/evening.

Tuesday Jan 14th
- Sail to Cooper Island
- Enjoy beach and happy hour

Wednesday Jan 15th
- Sail to Leverick Bay (at a slip for 2 nights)
- Catch Michael Beans' show

Thursday Jan 16th
- Land trip to the Baths (safari truck rental) and lunch on site
- Dinghy ride across to Saba Rock for 5pm Tarpon feeding - Is this doable (likely a wet ride)?

Friday Jan 17th
- Sail to Anegada (on a ball for 2 nights)
- Reserve a place for a lobster dinner (suggestions?)
- Reserve a vehicle for the following day (should we book in advance?)

Saturday Jan 18th
- Land exploration of the island
- Suggestions on best places to visit? Where to have lunch?

Sunday Jan 19th
- Sail to Cane Garden Bay
- Planning to have dinner on shore, suggestions?

Monday Jan 20th
- Sail to Little Jost Van Dyke and anchor near Sandy spit
- Visit Foxy's taboo and bubbly pool
- Sail to Great Harbour
- Happy hour at Foxy's
- Should we skip Little Jost Van Dyke, arrive early at GH and taxi to White Bay instead?

Tuesday Jan 21st
- Sail to Norman Island
- Dinner at the Pirate's bight and visit to the Willy T

Wednesday Jan 22nd
- Sail to the Caves and/or the Indians for a lunch and snorkeling stop
- Sail to the Moorings' base in the afternoon.

Thanks in advance for your valuable input!


Richard.

Yesterday at 07:48 PM Rainy day in SXM [by SXMScubaman]
Rain thunder and lightning on the way to Maho to pick up something at the pharmacy. Stopped in time for drinks at Driftwood. Outstanding rum punch as usual for me and wife never had a sex on the beach so what's a guy to do. She liked it so much she had a second one. Getting close to lunch time and I wanted to drop off something for Emilio at D's and remembered it was taco Tuesday so stayed for lunch. Rain was threatening so headed back to Flamingo when it came down in buckets.
Feel sorry for new arrivals having to use the stairs.

Yesterday at 01:11 AM Greenhouse [by SXMScubaman]
After a wonderful day at Mullet came back to Flamingo for a quick dip in the pool and a frozen margarita from the bar. Short walk to the Greenhouse for a prime prime rib dinner. So good, tender and perfectly prepared as usual. Odessa really takes care of us.

07/15/2024 09:34 AM Aloha Beach Bar Bastille Day buffet brunch [by erb923]
Was a fabulous buffet. Tons of fresh and smoked fish. Was a sold out event and 90% French clientele.

As a buffet the plates were small but they had fresh food being made non-stop so they rotated the plates very quickly.

Great French cheese and an amazing brownie for dessert.

Would say the price of 48€ per person was very reasonable!

07/14/2024 08:05 PM STT to West end [by skyscubadiver]
Do any of the ferries (Smiths, RTFF, Native sun) from Charlotte Amalie stop in West End or do they only go to Road Town now?

Thanks

07/14/2024 05:02 PM Opinions for my next trip [by Aries4]
I came down to the BVI in January for the first time in 10 years. And it reactivated the BVIrus in me! So I started planning for my next trip as soon as I got home. I'm just looking for a few opinions or a little insight on which of my two possible options might be better.

1. This coming OYE at Foxy's 12/30/24 to 1/7/25. My last vacation before the big gap was a Foxy OYE trip in 2015. Or,
2. Wait to do a combo Super Bowl/Full Moon trip in Feb 6-14, 2025.

Wanted to come again in the summer months to experience some of that glass-flat surf but I can't wait that long! lol

Any thoughts would be welcome!
