Our day of sailing around Tortola was not nearly long enough. We had such a great day...we wanted it to last longer! We only had a 9-5 day booked, We would recommend at least 1-2 days, if not more, to properly island hop and see all the beauty there is to see in this area.
My group of 4 won an auction item, that we bid on at a charity gala, and part of it was a day of boating on a 45' Catamaran. Captain Clinton greeted us very professionally, asked us the appropriate questions, and went over the 'rules' for our boating trip....all for our safety and fun. When we left the marina, we hoisted the sails and set sail - we had great winds that day, and truly had a fantastic time. Clinton was a wonderful captain: he kept us aware of what was going on, why he was doing certain things, and also got our guys in on the action.
He gave suggestions as to what would be safe/fun for our day on the water, but also listened to us - to get our input as to what we wanted to do.
i would definitely recommend Sailing Virgins to my friends who are headed to Tortola, and we will definitely book another trip....one that is longer next time. Novice sailor/boaters, as well as experienced ones would love this experience!!
