WHAT'S INCLUDED - Food (see details), taxes, park fees, nightly mooring fees, snorkeling gear, linens, and fuel. Does not include transportation, alcohol, shoreside food/bev, instructor (captain) gratuity.
FOOD - Your food aboard is all included. This is 7 Breakfasts, 7 Lunches, and 5 Dinners. Each vessel can decide how they would like to split the food preparation duties. There is no chef on these sails, it's a shared (and fun) task amongst the sailors.
FLIGHTS - We recommend flying into St Thomas (STT) then taking the ferry over to Tortola. You can also fly directly into Tortola (EIS). The last ferry to Tortola leaves St Thomas at 4:15pm. If you are arriving on Saturday make sure you land by 2:45pm to allow time for baggage claim and taxi to ferry. United Air from EWR has nice non-stop flights to STT and Delta from JFK has some non-stop options as well. We can also make suggestions for wonderful places to stay on island if you fly in Friday. The later you leave Saturday from BVI the better for the last day of sailing. Kayak.com has great hacker flights for the below currently under $400 round trip. Act fast.

EARLY ARRIVALS - There are numerous lodging options on St Thomas and Tortola if you choose to arrive before Saturday.
THE VIBE - This trip is all about having fun sailing in the islands. It's also a group effort trip. There is no chef and no maid. One of our staff is onboard to ensure the safe operation of the boat, teach ASA 104 to those interested, and keep things on schedule. You will create a schedule and divide the cooking, sailing, cleaning, and other chores before departure. This is truly a once in a lifetime trip. Well... until next year.
