In October of 2013, my girlfriend, my Mom and Dad and I took the vessel Sapphire out island hopping in the British Virgin Islands. It's still all we can talk about! I can't say enough good things about BVI Yacht Charters. Down to Earth, Friendly, Patient, Knowledgable, all and all GOOD PEOPLE. From our first questions via email from NYC to handing the vessel back on our last day in Tortola, the whole gang at BVIYC took great care in making sure we understood every step of the way. From contracts to deck cleats, from radios to rations they were happy to help and instruct. Furthermore, good people attract good people, every person we came in contact with not directly employed by BVIYC but all of their recommendations and associates were kind hearted and transparent when it came to costs for services or goods. This company has a real Mom & Pop feel in the way you know you are dealing with real people and not a soulless corporation. Every business should take a page out of the BVIYC playbook. I was truly blown away by the beauty of the islands, the top notch attention to detail by both the office personnel and the dock hands and the way they, knowing it was our first time on an adventure of this kind helped us to make it a trip of a lifetime.
