Moorings and TMM would be a good choice.

Yes, Moorings really is a first class operation. So is Sunsail, which is actually run by the same parent company, at the same dock. And the dock-side amenities they have at their location are as good as they get, also. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Of course, they are not the lowest price charters that you can find.

Re: BVI Charter Lessons Learned

Really excellent post, thank you for all the tips. I think the two items that stand out for me the most are 1) ensure you know how to reef the particular boat you're on and 2) ensure you know what your depth meter reading is.

On my just-ended first charter, my biggest mistake was not having enough time on the first day to really familiarize myself with all the systems. I felt really handicapped.

I had an "exclusive" boat from the Moorings, exactly 9 months old, and even with such a fresh boat, there were several minor issues to contend with. Still, can really recommend Moorings for standing behind us and resolving all issues quickly.
