Chartering BVI''''s in September
Yes, it is hurricane season but it is also when you will find the best bargains, lowest airfares, and least crowded anchorages. We travel to the BVI every year for the past three years during this time and have not yet been affected, with exception to a few tropical waves which typically last only a few hours. Follow the weather and you will know when they will affect your chartering.
See the archives at www.nhc.noaa.gov for a list of hurricanes each year. Over the past ten years, the charter companies seem to get maybe one hurricane every other year that actually disrupts charters for just a few days.
The charter companies must tell you that your travel could be affected, but in no way would I consider it a safety risk.
