Re: Are the charter prices based per person

hellosailor may have a point: if your guest has an immigration issue about leaving the US before she gets clearance to do so, she might check to see if travel to the USVI is OK in case things are not cleared up before the end of March.

If travel to the USVI is OK, you might charter out of St. Thomas--either Red Hook (my preference), Benner Bay, or Charlotte Amalie--and stay with the USVI. You could easily spend a week by circumnavigating St. John and checking out the north shore, Coral Bay, and the southwestern end of the island. You'll be eating on the boat for the most part. If you are more adventurous, allow 3+ days to sail to/from Christiansted on St. Croix, where you can check out the fort and Buck Island.

If your guest is cleared to leave the US by the time of your charter, you could modify your itinerary and spend some time in the BVI. You would have to check into the BVI at Soper's Hole (West end of Tortola), Jost van Dyke, Road Town, or Spanish Town. You would pay a cruising fee and a BVI park fee when you check in, based on the number of days you expect to stay in the BVI. Your checkout of the BVI would occur at check in. You would have to check back into the US--most likely at Cruz Bay, but there is no cost if you don't tie up at the customs dock.
