Does anyone know if there is a place in Tortola that we can buy some floating pool rafts/toys? We want to save on carrying them down and just buy them there.

we've always rented floats, noodles, etc,at great prices, they get delivered to you and they pick them up, do a search for water sports shops as I forget the names of the places we rented from

Moorings dock had them for sale/rent. Don't know if it has reopened after the storms though.

Have used Chris with www.bvisup.com on the last 2 trips and he is great. He has nice covers on the foam pool floats, which are about $20 per week I believe.

I’ve seen families with large floating mats (not the single person mat) which kids play on. Anyone know where you can possibly rent one.

bviwatertoys was great to work with and they have everything you will need. I even wanted an umbrella on one trip and they went to the store for me before my arrival and bought one!!

I'd like to know this too. The places aforementioned only have the singer person ones.
