The friendliest and best day sail trip in the BVI, offering a FULL DAY sail, 9.30am-5.00pm, (or timings to match your cruise ship schedule)on 48ft sailing catamarans to beautiful Jost van Dyke or to the Norman Island area to enjoy some of the best snorkelling the islands have to offer.

Help yourself to the open bar and enjoy the extensive buffet lunch, freshly prepared and served on board. Now you are here, check out the comments below . . . . . « less

We truly enjoyed our day sail to Jost Van Dyke on Aristocat! Captain Gilbo and Emily were wonderful and made the sail fun from start to finish. Food was simply delicious, the Rum punch was tasty, and the snorkel gear was well maintained. Very professional. Thanks again for making our family vacation to Tortola so much fun! We look forward...

We just got back from a day on the Lionheart with Captain Steve and First Mate Darren and I cannot recommend Aristocats enough. A wonderful day with two great stops, incredible beaches, fantastic snorkeling, good people, knowledgable skippers, and perfect weather. This trip was better than advertised. A perfect ending to our stay in BVI. We will use Aristocats again... More

We booked for the full day sail around Norman Island and the Indians that was advertised to include snorkel gear and "gourmet lunch". The pros: 1.) The boat was clean, well maintained and spacious, 2.) We departed on time at 9:30 and arrived at the dock at 5. The cons: 1.) They didn't have enough snorkeling gear for their paid... More

As the owner of Aristocat Charters, I am very proud of the good reputation that my company has built up over the past 11 years, and so was disappointed to be given this review, but feel that I must respond. I am constantly replacing the snorkeling equipment, masks, snorkels, fins and various buoyancy aids, this is necessary because we do... More

What a wonderful day trip this was. We went to three snorkel sights, one of which was The Indians. I have snorkeled all over, and this was by far the best I had ever seen. Had a lovely lunch, all fresh and good. As for the drinks, it seemed to be unlimited beer and my choice was the rum punch.... More

We had a day sail with Aristocat. We were staying in White Bay JVD. They came and picked us up right in the bay. It was raining to start but eventually quit. Still never cleared up but we still had a great time.

Our day on the Aristocrat definitely exceeded our expectations! Gilbo and Emily were fantastic captains and did an excellent job ensuring we'all had a great time. The snorkling was amazing. The day on the Aristocrat was definitely the highlight of our week in the BVI. The boat was roomy and easily fit the 10 participants the day we went. The... More

We had a post wedding celebration for 14 of us on the Lionheart June 2014. Steve, the owner/captain, brought the boat to Trellis Bay to pick us up with his crew. The boat, the sights, the snorkeling, the lunch, the ice cold drinks, and the experience were delightful! This was a great way to end our celebration! I would recommend... More

Our day on the Lionheart was the highlight of our trip to Tortola. Captain Steve and crew were fantastic and we had a wonderful and diverse group of folks that shared the day with us. We did "motor" for part of the trip but the captain can't control the wind and we would rather sail under power than spend half... More

Mother nature brought the gorgeous weather, but Capt Steve and Jessica put the whipped cream and cherries on top of this perfect day! I was skeptical because my last two sail and snorkel experiences were so bad, that I was beginning to wonder if the universe was trying to tell me something. Well, clearly it wasn't. We arrived on the... More

This was our second day sail with Aristocat charters and once again, it exceeded our expectations! The boat is both spacious and clean and the Captains, Gilbo and Emily, did a fantastic job making the day most enjoyable for everyone!! Beverages and lunch are served, and both are delicious.
