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.

I just had to respond to the person who wrote the “if you like to motor” review. I both sail and snorkel frequently and have been out on the Aristocat and its sister ship Lionheart a number of times over the past several years. Yes, sometimes you have to motor, but that is because there is not enough wind to... More

We booked a day trip with Aristocat Charters for our stop in Tortola on our recent cruise. Gilbo met us at the tender pier, literally a stone’s throw from the bow of our ship. The Lionheart is a beautiful catamaran sailboat, easily accommodating the 16 people on the charter that day. We spent the day snorkeling in 3 different locations;... More

What a totally ridiculous comment. We always set the sails to ensure that our guest enjoy the unique experience of wind power, however, the key word is WIND! Sadly, a sailboat does require wind to allow it to sail, that is one reason that boats are fitted with engines, for when the wind doesn't co-operate. Perhaps this guest would have... More

We came for a weeklong visit to Tortola based on my wife’s visit there 15 years ago while island hopping on a monohull. Our highest priority was to go sailing and snorkeling. Visiting the various day-sail vendors at Soper’s Hole we ran into Gilbo washing his car and were taken with him right away. We made a reservation for sailing... More

We had a group of 18 on the Aristocat for a day of island bar hopping and a little snorkeling mixed in. Gilbo and Emily were excellent hosts. We had a really fun day exploring. To boot, the on-board lunch was excellent..as was the rum punch.

We spent a great day with Gilbo and Emily snorkeling in Tortola. We've snorkeled in many places--this was great for water clarity and the shallow reefs. In some spots you had to be careful not to scrape your stomach! We stopped at the Indians, Norman Island, and one other spot. There was a lot of variety of coral, sponges, and... More

While on a cruise through the BVI we stopped in Tortola and went on a catamaran trip on the Aritocrat which we booked on our own through a referral. It was the highlight of our trip. It provided us with the best snorkeling we had and we went on two other snorkeling trips. There were me, my three brothers and... More

When asked about the recent 10 day Caribbean cruise that my family took, the first thing I tell about is not our large cruise ship or any of the ports, but I tell of our experience with Captain Steve, Candace and Lionheart! My family of 6 had one of the best days ever snorkeling, eating, drinking, chilling in the sun... More

Booked this trip online ourselves, met the catamaran right off the pier from where the ship was docked. Our group of 8 were from ages 6-70. Kid friendly. Everyone had a great time. Gilbo and Emily were awesome! Beautiful water, amazing snorkeling, great homemade lunch, unlimited rum punch, assorted beers, soda and water. Convenient, clean, plenty of room to move... More
