On November 10, the BVI government made a new announcement regarding its new travel protocols effective with the borders reopening on December 1. The summary of the entry requirements are:
We will share a more detailed summary of current entry protocols with our charter guests ahead of their arrival, and once the details are finalized (and possibly updated over time).
Testing & tracking cost in BVI: $175 per person (not included in your charter cost!). Includes 2 PCR tests and Smartphone App/Tracking Bracelet (any damages to the bracelet and the guest will be charged $125).
Children Under 5 will not be tested.
The latest announcement from the BVI government on October 26 provided some information regarding the requirements for travelers who wish to enter BVI, including COVID testing, tracing, and mandatory quarantine. It did not bring sufficient clarity to the question: can guests who wish to quarantine on a charter boat do so, and where can they sail to?
While we are researching that answer, we understand that many guests will not be able to comply with the protocols that we have just learned about. It’s also too early to know when the full scope of the restrictions will be known, and when your charter can take place.
If you wish to wait and understand the protocols better to see how we can accommodate or alter your charter within reason, please note we would like to confirm your booking no later than 30 days before departure. You may reach out to us then, or we will contact you and hopefully by then the above questions will be more clear.

We ask that guests make their decision no later than 30 days before departure.
Thank you for your kind patience as we continue to navigate uncharted waters together - pun intended.
