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.

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 it was heartening to see that it still was pretty healthy. I'd certainly book with Aristocat again the next time we are on tortola.

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 with a rum punch or two and Steve and Darren on Lionheart and Gilbo and Emily on Aristocat do a marvellous job of keeping everybody happy - not an easy thing to do when you have a bunch of strangers together, all wanting different things.

You do occasionally read a critical review but these need to be read with a bit of thought - one moaned they did not sail, there was no wind that day and as part of the trip is to visit 2 or 3 different places to snorkel there really is no choice but to motor. Both Captains manage to find great sites and give as much information on where to go and what to look for as they feel is wanted - remembering there are other people on board who also need attention.

Thanks to all of you - we can't wait to return next year and look forward to seeing you then.

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 that was having a day trip with us, they Prepare nice food for us like Coleslaw, Mixed Bean, Sweet Corn Salads, sandwich and a nice Breads for people that have kid they do have a Kids menu to.

Next trip to BVI for sure we will take a day sail again.

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 to coming back to Tortola soon and spending another day on the Aristocat.
