Owner description: Aristocat Charters is listed on Trip Advisor as the # 1 day charter company in Tortola, why don't you come and find out why! The friendliest and best day sail trip in the BVI, offering a FULL DAY sail, 9:30am-5:00pm, (or arranged to match your cruise ship schedule) on 48ft sailing catamarans to beautiful Jost Van Dyke; Norman Island & The Indians; Salt, Cooper, and Peter Islands; The Baths, etc. to enjoy some of the best snorkeling the BVI has 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.

“Simply the Best!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Having visited Tortola on a number of occasions I always enjoy getting out on a days sail boat. And having tried other boats in the past this year I returned to take another trip with Aristocat Charters. I was not disappointed, it simply blew the opposition away, great food, great boat, fantastic crew simply could not have been a better day on the water. Don't waste your time looking at other Companies, simply book with Aristocat Charters you will not be disappointed!

“A day sail on the Aristocat is a MUST!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stayed on Tortola for 10 days and a couple of days into our trip, we had booked a sailing trip with the Aristocat. We haven't read any reviews but have heard some great things from our hotel staff that Aristocat is a lot of fun. Once we had boarded the boat, it turned out to be an incredible day. Gilbert and Emily (captain and first mate) are extremely knowledgeable and made everyone feel very comfortable. There were 18 people on the boat when we went and not once did it feel crowded. Aside from the amazing sites that we stopped to snorkel at, Emily and Gilbert really helped make the trip memorable. I have to mention the delicious lunch they made as well. Everyone should experience the day sail on the Aristocat!!!

“Simply the best”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband & I visit the BVI's every year and we have taken The Aristocrat charter twice. Each time has been a stellar experience. The snorkeling is always great, the food is fresh & home-made, the crew is knowledgeable, safe and fun. We are returning to the BVI's in November with a group of 8 and have decided to do a private charter for the day with them as well. That choice was clear to us & wouldn't of even considered using someone else. Don't miss this day sail!

“Trip on Aristocrat went great”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

during out vacation on Tortola, we went one day with the Aristocrat and had a great time. My wife and I have snorkeled before, but the water in and around Tortoal is really nice. The Captain Gilbo and First mate made the trip very relaxed and prepared a great lunch for us. Would definitely choose the vessel again.

“Don't pass up a chance to sail on the Aristocat!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This day sail was the highlight of our trip. Emily and Gilbo were excellent hosts. They were very informative and made everyone feel comfortable. The lunch was very tasty. The snorkeling was out of this world!! The best snorkeling in the Caribbean, in my opinion. We had seven people in our party and everyone enjoyed this trip. Don't pass up your chance to sail on the Aristocat!!
