Looking for a Small Naturist Charter in BVI's, hopefully sooner than later #234059

It has been a long time absent from TTOL but I am doing research for a naturist charter in the BVI's... Right now there are only two of us but with the right boat, captain and crew we would work to fill the boat. Or we are very outgoing and would be willing to meet new people for good naturist fun.

Good food is a must we eat mostly organic and appreciate fine wines but not to excess. Both of us are avid scuba divers, and we really need a vacation...

Once we find the right captain, crew and boat... we might be able to fill the available space with other long-term nudists from our home resort. We are not a swinging crowd, many of us have raised our families as nudists and some may even be tempted to recruit our young adult children to take part.

We are all active and ready for R&R. so fire away...

Who do people recommend and who are still in business and who are comfortable with a "real" naturist group.

We are also looking for a similar experience in the Mediterranean, Adriatic and Aegean if anyone has someone to recommend...

David--as of now the BVIs are NOT open to tourists and it is very uncertain as to when they will be. Please read up in the BVI forum regarding that topic. Definitely not until at least November 1, and that is not at all certain they will reopen then.

As far as nudity in the BVI in general, on land it is illegal and not well tolerated at all. Except for your occasional deserted island, even topless is very much frowned upon, so I really don't think it's a terribly good choice for your search. For the most part, your nudity would be limited to on the boat and in the water in the immediate vicinity. Although I don't have a specific recommendation of a captain or boat for you, you could probably find what you want in St. Maarten, although right NOW, you can't visit the French side. You could also look somewhere around Guadelupe or Martinique. All of those would be much better places to look than the BVI. Europe would probably also be a good place to look, but I don't have any suggestions there either.

Right now, it's very difficult, figuring out where you can go... What about somewhere around Key West??

St Maarten would be a better fit for this for sure.

Unless you're European, Europe will be hard to get to in the following months.

Have you considered Captain Cactus in Baja California? https://www.nudistsailingvacation.com
Small boats, easily customisable experiences and excellent scuba diving.

When do you want to travel? Important question... As a professional in the charter yachting business for 30 years, and a resident on Tortola, right now I'd be hard pressed to say, "Sure, put down your $$$." Every new announcement from the territorial government leaves more questions than they answer about tourism in the BVI.

Agreed. Planning any trip to the BVI right now is a crap shoot.

What we gleaned from the announcements for any and all persons wishing to enter the BVI from 1 December, 2020:

4 day quarantine still in place (see more on this below).
Covid test results up-loaded to entry website prior to arrival & entry approved.
Health insurance will be required for travelers (ie: Covid insurance of some sort, and assume it's needed by non-BVI-based crew as well). Maybe check programmes available from MASA (Medical Air Services).
Covid test on arrival in the territory.
Government approved transport from the airport/ferry dock to approved quarantine site (yacht).
Travelers will be required to upload a tracking app to their phones.
Travelers will be required to wear a tracking wristband of some sort.
The fee for the two local Covid tests and the wristband will be significantly less than first thought: US$175/person. One should assume this applies to crews as well as tourists.
Charter guests may quarantine aboard the yacht.
Quarantined yachts may do so in designated quarantine anchorages (Which ones yet to be revealed).
Yachts may navigate between designated quarantine anchorages during the quarantine period.
3rd Covid test after 4 day quarantine.
After passing out of quarantine tourists free to roam the islands.
These protocols apply to people age 5 and over.

At first, as previously stated, only the Beef Island Airport will be receiving travelers. It was implied that the initial seaport for entry will be at the Road Town Customs House.

Just saw your post and there's a couple that sail in the VI area. You might want to check them out. They are C/O too, so contact them directly. There's been posts about them in TripAdvisor. Mandy's mom lives next door to us and this couple is extremely reputable and reasonable on their rates.

Port of Departure​
Virgin Islands (November through July)
American Yacht Harbor
Smith Bay Road, Red Hook
St. Thomas, USVI 00802

How to Book​
Contact Captains Joe and Mandy directly at SailingKumaToo@gmail.com
OR Contact a CYBA Yacht Broker

Kuma Too, a St. Thomas-based Leopard 47 cat, so no BVI for them right now, just the USVI.

We are looking for the same thing. A clothing optional cat in the BVI's. Our trip won't be until 2023 because that's when we retire. We hope to do it for our retirement celebration. It seems as though C/O options are becoming scarce these days. If you have any advice we would appreciate it.
Thanks,
Markis, and Janis

markis--really, my best advice is to not look in the BVI. It's just not a c/o friendly destination.

Hi, thought I would add my input. If anyone likes I can tailor a BVI trip for them. Raised in the BVI and have access to many different catamarans and monohulls, talk to me and we can plan a trip no problem. This goes for anyone. Very happy to take you to my favorite secret spots around the BVI we here we can just be. I’m 25 and know the islands like the back of my hand.
