Recent charter in BVIs

Just got back from a fabulous 7 days in the BVIs! We chartered from Conch Charters and I was a bit nervous given some on-line reviews. I was very pleased with the boat and the service was excellent. The boat was an older Beneteau 323 so it wasn't perfection, but I wasn't expecting that and the rates were very reasonable. The boat was clean and very comfortable for my wife and I.

Great weather, great sailing! Favorite anchorage was Key bay on the south side of Peter Island...very quiet and scenic.

I have pictures posted here: https://picasaweb.google.com/1048426...VirginIslands#

LOVE all the pics, thanks for sharing! I'm really hoping to convince the family to charter for a week in BVI and your pics certainly help my cause. Many thanks.
Jim

Very nice! The water down there is the 'bluest blue' there is - I'll join the jealous crowd (and start saving those nickels and dimes for our next journey south!).

Thanks for bringing me back - we must have shared very similar itineraries!

There's a Sugar Mill House on Virgin Gorda and a Sugar Mill Hotel by Apple Bay on Tortola.

Don't know about the one on VG, but we've stayed at the Sugar Mill Hotel a couple of times and would go back. We even took a mooring at Soper's Hole on a charter once and took a taxi there for dinner. It's a neat location and and the food is superb.

Re: Recent charter in BVIs

Beautiful pictures. One question, and one comment...

Question: What kind of camera for the underwater photos?
Comment: I think what you have labeled as Manna Cay is actually Marina Cay.
