43 minutes ago Dinner at the Wonky Dog in anegada [by warren460]
We enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Wonky Dog dog last Monday night.

The restaurant was quiet. We were the only party that night.

There were 10 of us.

Desne prepared amazing drinks, as always.

For appetizers we enjoyed the firecracker shrimp, roasted garlic and lettuce wraps. All highly recommended.

Nearly all of us had lobster.

The lobster was amazing.

But that's not all.

Renovations are in high gear. The facility is undergoing a very major rebuild.

The restaurant will be on two floors and the second floor is almost ready for pouring the concrete.

Wonky dog provided a wonderful night in paradise!

9 hours ago dog transportation from US to BVI/USVI/PR [by hwbeefisland]
Hello All-
Wondering if anyone has experience or knowledge of means of transporting a Labrador Retriever to the BVI or PR or USVI. We do not trust commercial airlines pet cargo transportation. Maybe a charter flight from FLA but that may be cost prohibitive. Is anyone aware of any ocean transportation options for passengers and pets from FLA to the sites mentioned above? I believe Cape Air allows pets to fly but that would only be from PR to BVI or USVI We would stay one to four months in the BVI if we can transport the pooch.
Thanks

11 hours ago Sailing [by dolfer]
Despite be a life-time power boater (and occasional sailor) I have recently become MUCH more interested in the idea of sailing. So being an experienced 'water' guy that wants to learn more about sailing, what would be the best current experience available for us in September?

Yesterday at 10:44 PM Team work charters rocks! [by warren460]
We met Sherwin yesterday and he provided us with an excellent outing on Anegada’s horseshoe reef.

Sherwin was prompt and did not leave us waiting for him at the dock.

Our first stop was conch island. Sherwin provided an overview of the background surrounding this place.

We looked for turtles and rays here too.

Next we swam on the reef to collect some conch.

We picked up several large conch and Sherwin made us outstanding conch ceviche.

All you can eat (catch).

After that we went snorkeling on the reef.

Sherwin snorkeled with us and acted as a guide in the water as well.

The parts of the horseshoe reef we saw are in great shape.

Sherwin had a decent boat, has lots of local knowledge to share and in my opinion, provides great value on his tour.

Thanks again Sherwin, we all had a blast!

Yesterday at 10:41 PM Picking Up Late Arrival [by Reynolds]
Looking for the best way to get someone from Beef Island airport to Jost Van Dyke. My buddy's girlfriend is coming in two days late to meet us and we will be in Great Harbour. She lands at 9:47 AM. We are in a power cat so not really an issue to motor over to the west end of Tortola. Would you recommend mooring in cane garden bay or sopers hole to meet a cab? Any other thoughts?

Thanks,

RB

Yesterday at 04:30 PM STT to Ferry Connections [by SeeDiver]
We're looking at several routings from ORD-STT, and need to connect to a Tortola-bound ferry.

The best price (using AA) arrives STT via CLT at 3:15.

My best interpretation of the ferry schedules (www.roadtownfastferry.com) shows the last departure CA to RT at 4:15

Is there a later ferry, or is there good confidence of making the connection?

There is a routing through MIA which arrives earlier, but it's a few $100's more.

Yesterday at 01:31 AM Day of arrival?? [by dolfer]
Okay I thought I had this down but things have changed. It obviously depends on where your staying but after leaving the airport we've usually stopped somewhere on Welfare Rd. at a small convenience store (wife stays in the car) and I run in and get beer, drinks, a little liquor maybe, some juices, a few snacks, etc. Next day we've almost always gone to the grocery store in Cole Bay where Mark's is.

But now? Are there still a few stores between the airport and Belair (where we're staying this year)? It sounds like the big store that interests me is Super U (with Carrefour closed). OR, should I use Shop N' Drop or Belair services to stock a few things prior to arrival. I'd be very interested in hearing the current trends and ideas from those of you who have been there in the past few months.

Yesterday at 12:55 AM What places will you miss most? [by sxmmartini]
Post Irma has changed the landscape. What places will you miss most on your return visit to SXM?

For me it would be Dinghy Dock in Oyster Pond and Busby's on Dawn Beach.
