If sanitation is not an issue for you thats your prerogative. I for one don't want to spend my vacation time in the John because of some bacteria I picked up at a beach bar that has no regard for public health safety but a desire to make a buck.
So wrong on many respects. Some cruisers are on an all inclusive ship excursion to orient. If priced out of reach others will just throw a towel out and not rent or just walk the beach. Greed will end up biting them in the butt if they out price the chairs. Many other places to go that are more reasonable.
Thanks everyone! I will look into all your suggestions. If my mom agrees to go with us we will have 7 people and need 4 berths. If she doesn't we will have 6 and only need 3. I don't think a charter teaching my husband what to do is for us. He's never had any boating experience, except with my dad and I think it's best to keep it that way!!!!!!!
We were in the BVI for three weeks in November. There are lots of mooring balls in Great Harbour, even with lots of folks visiting the Willy T. If Willy is gone by the time of your visit it's hard to imagine a shortage of mooring balls. Depending on conditions, Key Bay can be a very nice anchorage. It's on the western side of Peter Island near Key Point. There are a few coral heads, but clearly visible in good light. Key Bay is also very convenient for the trip back over to Road Town. It's actually closer to Road Town than the Bight on Norman is to Road Town. Only a few boats can anchor there comfortably, but when we've been there we're either alone or had just one other boat in the bay.
My experience has been that Riteway usually delivers relatively close to the time you request (will some allowance for Island Time). Employees at the Charter Companies are usually very happy to help..If they said that they would call Riteway for you I would believe them. Having said that, I agree with the others here. Go in with patience and expect delays. If you don't expect too much you might bot be let down!
