BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS BVI

Dive and Sail the British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) is an extremely popular Caribbean dive region due to its outstanding and easily accessible dive sites – more than 100, convenient air service, proximity to the U.S. Virgin Islands and its common language of English. The BVI, a volcanic archipelago, is comprised of four large islands – Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Virgin Gorda and Anegada, plus more than 50 small islands.  The BVI is also the sailing capital of the Caribbean, so what better way to experience this beautiful area than on a sailing & scuba diving liveaboard like the Cuan Law.

The National Trust of the Virgin Islands is involved in species restoration, marine conservation, reforestation, biodiversity research and conservation and historical preservation. Visitors to the area can see the trust’s work in progress when exploring Tortola’s J.R. O’Neal Botanic Gardens, RMS Rhone Marine Park with underwater pinnacles and ledges at Blonde Rock, the canyons of Painted Walls and the tunnels and cave at Rhone Reef, and world renowned The Baths at Virgin Gorda. National historic sites on Virgin Gorda include Little Fort near Spanish Town, the Copper Mine ruins dating back before 1860.

The British Virgin Islands are know for their wreck diving.  The BVI Art Reef is the newest and showcases the former WWII navy ship, now known as the Kodiak Queen. The Dogs, Ginger and Cooper islands all offer exceptional wreck diving as well as great reefs, while snorkeling at The Caves near Norman Island receive high marks.

Luxury resorts are scattered among the islands including those offering spa services. In contrast, local watering holes like Soggy Dollar, Pusser’s and Willy T’s are great places to kick back and completely unwind.

HOW TO GET TO THE BVI

The most popular route to the British Virgin Islands is via San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU). Direct flights to San Juan are available from many US cities. There are over 15 flights per day on the 30 minute hop to Tortola's Beef Island Airport (EIS). You can also fly to and from St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands (STT) and take the inter-island ferry to Tortola, about a 1 hour ride. This is generally less expensive than the San Juan route.

Dolphin Water Taxi - from St Thomas

If travelling from St Thomas, you could also use our preferred partner, Dolphin Water Taxi, and get a door to door fully-insured service, express customs clearance via the ExpressClear form available from their website, flexibility with late arrivals and an exclusive Cuan Law discount if mentioned when booking. Refreshments are also provided in their cabs and water taxi. Visit their website for further information: www.dolphinshuttle.com.

Dolphin Water Taxi - St. Thomas Transfers

Dolphin Water Taxi offers quick private transfers from St. Thomas airport direct to all Tortola Charter docks. This saves our guests a considerable amount of time and anxiety over alternative methods of transportation. Read more about transfers here.

BOARDING AND DROP OFF

Boarding will usually be on Sunday at 12 noon at the CSY Dock, Road Town, Tortola. Transfers are not included. If you are staying on shore before your trip with us, or arriving at the BVI airport (EIS) on the day that you join us, please let us know your arrival details in advance so that we arrange for our driver to pick you up. Please let us know if you are coming in by regular ferry from St. Thomas on the day of the Cuan Law trip. You’ll have a couple of ferry options and we’ll walk you through the choices. Keep in mind that we won’t be ready for you until noon so if you decide to make an early start and come over before then we’ll offer ideas about how to spend the morning. Otherwise we’ll have a taxi waiting at the Road Town ferry dock meeting the ferries out of Charlotte Amalie. This short taxi ride will cost around $7.00 per person. Make sure you get off in Road Town and not West End!

We prefer that our guests try to arrive on the island in time for a noon boarding, but if you are delayed, we will get you out to the boat by fast tender.

Disembarkation is generally on Saturday morning in Road Town. The boat comes in early enough to allow time to shop before leaving the islands. You must, in any case, be off the boat by 10:00 am. We arrange transfers to the airport and ferries at your expense. If you are flying out later in the afternoon we are happy to keep your bags on board while you are exploring the Island. Anyone with early flights or ferries will be run ashore in time to meet their transfers, including the earliest at 7.00am.

PACKING

The order of the day is casual and most of us put on shorts and a T-shirt after diving or just change into a dry swimsuit. Shoes are only needed for going ashore and then sandals are the best bet. As dinner is a sit down occasion and a highlight of the day, we ask guests to put on a smart shirt or a light dress.
