Re: BVI in the spring - Looking for Wisdom
I'm sure plenty of others will respond, but in terms of airfare...generally you can either fly into Beef Island or into St. Thomas and take one of the ferries over. I've done both, and while flying into Beef Island is the most convenient, it is also considerably more expensive. Flew into STT this year and had noproblems whatsoever with the ferries, although others have had issues. They have (had) a reputation for being unreliable.
The main advice I can give is to check the Cruise ship schedule...I believe the BVI port authority lists it, as well as where the ships will be going and on what days. It also lists the capacity, so you can get an idea of how big the ship is...We avoid them like the plague and will plan our itinerary around them. Certain places, such as Jost, Cane Garden Bay, etc, can be mobbed with cruise ship patrons.
