What companies are operating since Irma? Scott and I have been gone for a couple of years since selling our Leopard 45 "Wildcat 2". We would love to return in February for a trip with friends. Any recommendations? Missing the BVI and all our friends there. Hope to put together a great return trip. Can't wait.

Ahoy, The Captains Compass here with 2 Leopard 43s cats with 4 beds and 4 baths, a Leopard 42 cat with 4 beds and 4 baths, and a Beneteau 43 mono with 3 beds and 3 baths. And more next November. None of these yachts saw any salt water on the interiors or engines last summer. Looking forward to sharing the Vintage BVI with you!

Just finished a 12 day charter with Conch. They did a great job, as usual.

We have 19 out of 24 boats back in service at CYOA. We will be back to full strength if not a little over full strength by fall.

CYOA not only has boats but does a superb job. Great customer service and the convenience of leaving from St. Thomas and not taking ferries.

TMM is up and running with a lot of new and nearly new boats on the books. Quality is as excellent as ever.

Virgin Islands Yacht Charters in Compass Point Marina, East End of St. Thomas. Fleet of FP catamarans. Fly to St. Thomas on one taxi ride later and you're on your yacht. Avoid the ferry cluster. BVI less than 2 hours from east end

Ditto on above! Just returned from our trip, July 4th-12th, and would highly recommend VIYC out of Compass Point. Jim & Kristi are top notch, book it with them and move on to the next step!!! Walter and all the other people around Compass Point Marina (VIYC or otherwise) ALL just have those attitudes that give you the warm fuzzy, upon arrival and through departure. I'm still a newbie, only my second charter (first was last year-out of Hodges Creek ), but I've done both and can tell you that taking the ferry out of the picture got us on island time a WHOLE lot quicker. Plan on a sleep aboard and dinner at the Dive Bar!! Toying with a trip report, but I tend to get a little long winded...

Highly recommend TMM and ORION. Great company and owner.


I'd like to be a jelly fish, cause jelly fish don't pay rent.

Thanks for the suggestions. I booked a Leopard 47 with Conch Charters. Being on a Leopard 47 will feel just like home as it's exactly like our Leopard 45 we sold a couple years ago. Excited to come back for a visit. Really have missed the BVI.
