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.

“Do not miss!”
Reviewed March 26, 2010

Captain Steve and Gilbo were wonderful hosts to our best day in the BVI. The snorkelling was terrific - it is clear Captain Steve knows where the best spots are and he provides plenty of time to enjoy them. The lunch he puts on is just a bonus! Do not miss the opportunity to do a day sail with Aristocat if you are in the area.

“wouldn't do without this charter again visiting Tortolla next year!”
Reviewed March 24, 2010

Thank you Captain Steve and crew! This charter was the highlight of our vacation! You kept us informed while sailing and made us all feel very much at home the entire time! Great lunch and rum punch--you did a fantastic job with everything concerning our charter--can't wait to come back and do it again next year! Thinking of going twice during our next vacation! And yes we'll be telling everyone go ARISOCAT CHARTERS! Thanks again for taking good care of us! The Allens from Boston Ma. (i will be sending pictures at later time for sure)

“Great Day on the Aristocat”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

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.

“Best of ALL!!!”
Reviewed March 11, 2010

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.

“Best Day of our 7 Day Cruise”
Reviewed February 10, 2010

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.
