It's very beautiful to sail in BVI. We sailed from Tortola to Cooper Island then to Virgin Gorda & then to Norman Island...

Re: Going BVI in May thinking about St Lucia in July

We are hoping to charter BVI July 2013. I have never been in summer, but prices are great and the birthday we are celebrating is in July. Someone suggested it was a bad time because no wind. Does anyone who has been in July have an opinion? We have previously used Barecat Charer in Tortola and pleased with them.
Thanks!

Still plenty wind at that time of the year.

Re: Going BVI in May thinking about St Lucia in July

We are planning a trip to BVI in late May as well. Does anyone have the perfect 10 day float plan they would be willing to share?

We are also considering Belize.

Tell me where you've been and what you liked and or disliked.

Thanks

How was your trip to the USVI and BVI?

Re: Going BVI in May thinking about St Lucia in July

It was ok, I guess? The water was too clear. There was way too many fish too see snorkeling. The scenery was ok, lol (shaver on the cat at Anagada ) The food was pretty good but the pain killers tried to kill me one night. Oh and the captain (aka: SL) that helped me with the boat was an A-hole but a fairly likable, knowledgable guy. Over all the trip was ok I guess.

I CANT WAIT TO FREAKING GO BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I heard a rumor that the Capt you hired had to help you onto the dinghy and then onto your charter boat after you tried to drink painkillers with him at Cooper Island.

It sounds like you saw some good stuff snorkeling. When are you going back?
