LOL!!! Now thats a nasty rumor! If you dont have any proof, then it didn't happen! (Note to self: two painkiller max at one sitting.)

Two thumbs up on the snorkeling. Going back ASAP!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are also considering Belize.

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

Thanks

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?

Still plenty wind at that time of the year.

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!
