We need a charter w/crew - 3 days 2 nights

My wife and I will be visiting Tortola March 23 through March 30. We are interested in a 2 night charter boat crewed experience. I realize that it is not typical to request charter service for such a short period of time, but my wife is a bit nervous about the whole thing. It is my hope to get her interested by taking baby steps.
A friend of mine (who has chartered many times out of the BVI) suggested we go to one of the marina''s (west end) a few days prior to our charter days and try to drum up a deal. He thought we might have good luck with this approach since our desired dates fall on a Wednesday and Thurday (returning Friday).
I am interested in getting some feedback with this approach and some ideas of what we should expect to pay. If it is not practical, I still have time to extend our hotel stay and take day boat trips. What do you think? Thanks.
