BVI charter/Ferry info


Recommended Posts

Interested in your experience there.  We are headed to the BVI on March 19.  One week of cruising and then week 2 with just the guys and the BVI spring regatta.  Interested in any info you can provide.  Especially as it relates to getting a COVID test for the return home.

Yes you need covid test to enter USVI or mainland USA if you are lucky enough to fly directly out of Tortola.  For USVI there is a portal you need to enter you info.  Not sure of direct to mainland.  Best is to do a proctored test using a company like this.    But you need to order the kit before you go!

If you have any specific questions let me know.

It cost some extra cash but nothing can compare to using a private water taxi.  Especially with the covid testing that is required on the entry into BVI.  Something to splurge on if at all possible.  

+1 on this advice. Try this outfit . . . they were awesome.

Last winter (Jan-March) we were in the USVIs and the ferries were running regularly, even with the BVIs shut off. I doubt they will be the limiting factor. As others have said - it will be testing.

Happily, you won't be blazing the trail. Here are the steps according to the moorings: https://www.moorings.com/covid19/travel-restrictions/british-virgin-islands
