One of the top questions we are getting here at BVI Traveller is, “I am coming for a charter in the BVI this season and want to know who has fuel, water and ice. I also need to know where I can get provisions and what restaurants are open near the marinas.” To answer this question, we reached out to Jessica Perraton-Jones, owner of the Charter Yacht Company who complied the following report on the current state of the marinas in the BVI.
“I just returned from our annual Charter Yacht Shows at Nanny Cay and Yacht Haven Grande and had the opportunity to explore the island-chain and help with some relief work,” said Jessica. “It was heartbreaking as events unfolded with the hurricanes, but has been so heartwarming to see everyone pull together in a common goal to recover and rebuild in order to bring tourism back to the islands,” she added.
Jessica stated that all of the marinas were hit hard, but most are now back in operation, continuing the clean up and adding services. She believes that this year is an excellent time to visit the BVI with boats readily available, anchorages uncrowded and many companies offering discounted rates due to the hurricanes.
