We spent a phenomenal week in the BVI at the end of January 2021. The government’s COVID testing requirements added a slight wrinkle to the plans, but were not as daunting as they appeared on paper. Furthermore, the team at BVI Yacht Charters was incredibly helpful in addressing questions and seeking out answers on our behalf before our arrival and while at sail. The islands are as beautiful as ever and the lower number of human visitors over the last year has allowed the sea life to truly flourish. We had some of the best snorkeling excursions in our 8 years of visiting the islands and saw a number of new creatures we had not come across in past visits. Upon clearing the BVI quarantine protocols, we had incredible service at the restaurants we visited before heading home. The trip was a much needed escape to paradise and we are already rebooked for later this year!
