What to bring

If you haven’t chartered a yacht before, you are in for a vacation like no other.  The Virgin Islands are very laid back and informal, so keep your packing to a minimum and you won’t miss a thing.

The following are only suggestions, but we find you need less than you think! Please use soft-sided foldable luggage so you have plenty of room to move. If you are unsure about what to bring, please ask.

  • T-shirts and shorts are the perfect for the trip
  • A polo shirt is like a tuxedo here, so pack one if you must
  • Swim wear
  • Sun hat
  • Rash Guard or T-Shirt for snorkelling
  • Flip flops for your time ashore (you will be barefoot onboard)
  • Shoes for walking, hiking or running
  • Sun glasses
  • Sun screen high factor (non staining; no oil or sprays please)
  • Toiletries
  • Camera
  • Chargers for phones, iPods, etc. (110-240 Volt)
  • Snorkel and mask if you are attached to yours (boats supply fins, snorkels & masks)
  • Dive certification if you wish to SCUBA dive
  • Books, magazines, CD's, DVD's, iPod as you like
  • Laptop computer if you wish to use the internet
  • Insect Repellent
  • Medicines as required
  • Sea sickness remedies
  • Drivers license if wanted
  • Credit cards and currency (The USVI and BVI use US Dollars)
  • Passport
