As a recent BVI first timer to an about to be first timer, I agree with others that provisioning packages can be overkill and wasteful. My family of four did the split provisioning (i.e., all meals and snakes except two dinners), only ate out twice and still had TONS of food and beverages leftover; however, as a first timer I don't think I would do it differently. As a first timer to the BVI, I think there is something to be said for the convenience of pre-ordering (at least a minimal provisioning package) so that you and your crew can get comfortable with the boat and all the "shinny" things that are sure to grab you attention as you make your way around the islands, instead of worrying about going shopping for provisions. Regardless, there is no wrong/ right decision. it is an awesome place ... Have a great trip!
