Concierge.com's insider take:
Visitors will find more boat bunks than hotel beds in the BVIs. It's one of the best places in the world to charter a boat—bareboat or crewed, mostly sail but powerboats are becoming more popular—because the island chain is blessed with easy line-of-sight navigation, innumerable idyllic coves, and ideal anchorages, as well as the best selection of boat-friendly watering holes on the planet. Wannabe yachties can hire a captain who will take responsibility for the boat while also showing them the ropes and letting them do as much or as little of the sailing as they want. The Moorings is the largest charter boat company in the BVI, with a large selection of bareboats and fully crewed yachts, both sail and power. A major expansion of their Tortola base should be completed in early 2008.
