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.

Our group of 7 spent an amazing, relaxing day on the Aristocat in Feb. '10. Captain Steve and Gilbo were terrific. They took very good care of us. Drinks were always available and the homemade lunch was just delicious. They brought us to several swimming and snorkeling spots - that were not overrun with other boaters. We had a lot of fun and will definitely sail with them again next Feb.

I have been on many snorkle trips in the BVI, and I won't bad mouth the others, but this BY FAR the best. Capt. Steve has everyone beat. He welcomes everyone warmly and provides a lovely day, with plenty of conversation, a lot of hoots and laughs and everyone has a great time.. Gilbo is his fisrt mate and not only does he help sail butis at your service to fetch drinks and tell you all about the area.The snorling is great, but all the boats go to the same places. It is the crew that makes the trip. All this in spite of the fact Steve's a Brit. Well, you can't have everything.

During an NCL cruise from Miami, we spent our day in Tortola aboard Aristocat and it turned out to be the best day of our week in the Caribbean. Captain Steve and First Mate Gilbo picked us up at the cruise ship dock. We spent the day sailing, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and enjoying the BVI. The service was fabulous. Captain Steve and Gilbo were great fun. Our large family had plenty of space to spread out and everyone was very comfortable on the boat. We did a similar charter on a monohull in the Cayman islands several years ago. It was nice but did not compare with this. I would absolutely recommend these guys and this boat to anybody and I look forward to an opportunity to sail with them again.

What a Beautiful Day on the Water! Captain Steve and "Gilbo" sailed us to three exciting snorkeling locations off Norman Island and the Indians. They took care of our every need. The Aristocat is a spectacular boat. Smooth in the water, clean, and plenty of shade. Lunch was prepared by Captain Steve and Gilbo and was tasty. Plenty of selection to choose from. Plenty of beer and rum punch to keep us going. We never felt rushed at any snorkle spot. Added bonus was the kayak on board for guests to use. I would sail on the Aristocat again. This was one of the best adventures on our recent trip. I am also glad that Gilbo found his missing green shoe!!!
