Will be there next week! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Joy.gif" alt="" /> We have a very short trip this time (3 full days). Are there any islands/beaches we should avoid while planning our itinerary due to the seaweed? What about snorkeling spots? Thanks!
7 days and counting <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Groovin.gif" alt="" />

Are you on a boat? Out of Road Town? If so, I'd just hit Norman, Peter, and Cooper -- all three are great stops. Snorkel the Indians on the way to Norman if you get there early - hit the Caves as well and then pick up a mooring in the Bight. Head to Peter the next day and maybe anchor in Deadmans Bay and enjoy the facilities ashore at Peter Island Beach Resort. On your last day, sail to Cooper and snorkel Cistern. Just my thoughts but others may chime in with different ideas.

It's back at SDB. It's like the mail, it just keeps on coming.

And it's nowhere near as bad as it was a few days ago at SDB.

Thank you for the itinerary suggestions Winterstale! We are on a power cat through the moorings this time. We have never been to Peter so that could be a first. The kids love Jost and SDB, would you avoid it this time if you were us? We are mixing a little business with pleasure therefore the reason for the short trip....somehow I feel a trip extension forthcoming...it is so difficult to leave!

Oh well...now you're talking POWER cat so it's a whole new Oprah - LOL. You could easily zip around and do JVD first, then go to Norman for the Indians and the Caves and finish with Peter...

Soggy cam shows a clean beach today. Has the sargassum retreated or is the beach being cleaned frequently?

We will be in the BVI's in a few weeks and was wondering which of the beaches are the cleanest. We have been to the BVI's many times in the past and would like to return to our favorites but not if they are loaded with seaweed.
