There is no bad time to sail in the BVI, the best time for your group really depends on you. December through April is our Mid/High season and can be busy. This is a good time to come if you like a bit more action, a little more wind and you enjoy the social scene ashore. Throughout this period, winds average 15-20 knots, sometimes higher with a front passing through.
During May to July the season starts to slow down a little. Everything is still open it’s just a little more peaceful. The water is a little warmer, the rates are a little lower and the wind is a little gentler. We are closed August through mid-October due to hurricane season.
In the fall, October and November, there is a very slight risk of hurricane. Although many people are concerned about chartering during this time, there’s a very low chance of it affecting your vacation. If you are looking to be alone in an anchorage, with the pristine beach to yourself, this is the time to come. In the unusual event of a hurricane heading directly for the islands, we may need to call the boat back in. In this case we will refund, pro-rated, your charter fee for lost days. Circumstances permitted, once the storm has passed you will be able to continue your charter as normal.
