Re: BVI in July - Weather?
Between weather radios and cell phones, you should never be unable to get the boat back to the Charter operator, in the event of a hurricane. The problem may be getting off the island before your scheduled flight.
The scenario that would bother me the most would be a storm developing off the African Coast just a few days prior to the trip. It would be entirely unclear how big it was going to become or where it was going. However, it would not be enough of a threat to cancel the trip, or more specifically, collect on travel insurance. You would have to go and potentially turn around.
This said, I have traveled the Bahamas and Caribbean during the summer months. I've often had some internet access, so keeping an eye on things is fairly easy. You just need to be ready and willing to leave.
