This is our second summer in a row chartering a monohull from BVI Yacht Charters in July for our family vacation. We chose a slightly larger boat this time--Gitana, a Beneteau 42--which was perfect for two adults and two children (ages 7 and 12.) We love the off season: the weather was beautiful, we had a lot of space and personal attention in popular spots like Jost Van Dyke/Cooper Island, and even had a few peaceful anchorages all to ourselves. We spent two nights in Anegada, and the kids were delighted to discover the pool at the new Anegada Beach Club, which also has an awesome beach and about a dozen hammocks for lounging while the kids splash around. The shuttle driver picked us up right at the dock and took us there and back for Happy Hour, and even threw in a few free drinks! Another great "family friendly" touch was the stand up paddle board we added to our charter this time--very worth it--we used it for for everything from transportation at the Baths (Virgin Gorda) to assisting our youngest with her snorkeling adventures. Thanks to the dolphins, sea turtles, and gorgeous fish who checked in to say "welcome back" to my kids, and thanks to Chris at BVI Yacht Charters for all of his great help getting started! We will be back.
