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. On all our day sails we make a MINIMUM of 3 stops at different locations to swim and snorkel on some great reefs, in the clearest water in the Caribbean. 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've taken quite a few catamaran day sails and we had a lovely time on this one. We spent this one out captain and first mate were very pleasant, competence and knowledgable. Lunch was good and then there's the beautiful waters, coral and marine life of the BVI. I hadn't been to the Indians in quite a few years and... More

We have been coming to Tortola for up to 6 weeks for the last 10 years and have lost count of the number of trips we have done on both Aristocat and Lionheart. We have tried the others but now stick to the one we know is best. The boats are well maintained, clean and spacious; lunch is delicious especially... More

Is one of the iconic companies on the BVI for a quick sail trip or a whole week enjoying the Caribbean sea, we enjoy with friend some amazing cross wind of the sir Francis channel or the stoning view’s from your boat of the Just Van Dike bay's. The boat Captain Steve was very fun and professional with the group... More

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
