Downside of the BVI

Sadly a Conch Charter boat. The qualifications to rent a bare boat are pretty darn low. They only hit six other boats in this video.

Never seen Anedgada so ugly

Re: Downside of the BVI

I found a couple of downsides to the BVI on a different level.

Many, if not most of the natives are surly and the food is surprisingly lousy for the most part.

The clarity of the water is absolutely life altering though.

Re: Downside of the BVI

Yes that video has been around for years. So those incidents dont happen often.

Yes, Blue Bikini is nice. That doesnt happen often enough

Re: Downside of the BVI

we need more Blue Bikini in our lives.

Sadly, anchorages are often less Blue Bikini, and more German Speedo Dude.

I love the comments on YouTube:

Quote:
I only clicked on this cos of the ass shot.. great ass.
Quote:
does that girl know why do you have almos 180k visits?
And dozens more like that.

When you post a video, YouTube gives you a choice of thumbnails, so this guy had to know what he was doing when he chose that frame.

Re: Downside of the BVI

So if the BVI is full of credit card captains, where is the next best place to cruise? Something a little more challenging to navigate with less crowds and amateurs, but just as many blue bikinis and hopefully less german speedos?

Re: Downside of the BVI

I think the Grenadines would be next on the list.
