As recent empty-nesters we didn't want to charter an entire vessel, so our broker found us Prime Time. We excitedly booked and were upgraded to the king suite; omg his and her bathrooms for an entire week!!! Completely by chance, our October weather conditions were ideal, and because it wasn't quite "season," we literally had the Islands to ourselves. Spectacular snorkeling everyday, and Captain Joe was very accommodating, getting us to all the great spots, and even encouraging us old-timers to try out the SUP and ZUP board (which i mastered)! He went above and beyond by offering his vehicle for us to explore Tortola! The boat vibe was very comfortable and relaxed and laid-back, exactly our style. My happy place was with my butt in the bean bag on the bow with a drink in my hand every time we were under way!!! #beanbagonthebow

Incredible week on Prime Time cruising through the BVI.
I booked this trip for my wife's 40th birthday. There were 6 of us on the trip and we stayed on the boat for 8 days. We toured all of the islands in the BVI, went scuba diving (saw sharks!), hit all of the awesome beaches and beach bars and even took a jump from the top of the yacht into the water 40 feet down! Joe (Captain), Michael (1st Mate) and Londa (Chef) made sure that anything we needed was taken care of and ensured each day had something new and fun to do.
A little more detail: The Boat - The boat is plenty large for 3 couples. We spent most of the boat time on the wide open top deck catching sun or shade while enjoying cocktails. There was a ton of room up there and the breeze was great. We used the main level of the boat for some games at night and watched a couple movies. The boat had hi-speed wifi for the entire journey. Netflix and facetime worked just fine to watch movies and stay in touch with our kids. Lower deck rooms were a great place to escape the heat and catch a cat nap. I slept in the master and must say that the bed was more comfortable than I was expecting.
The Food- Londa was the chef on board and the food was incredible. Regardless of the menu, she made every dish taste great. We had Mahi Mahi, Pork chops, BBQ ribs, West Indian Roti and Lobster to name a few. All were amazing. We even asked us to use the left over lobster for lobster mac the next day and that was awesome too. Really impressed with her...
The BVI - What a great place. I have been throughout most of the Caribbean and really loved how the BVI. It is quite arid in comparison to Jamaica or some others but still beautiful, mountainous and sandy. Also, the people were terrific - never had an issue. I loved how we could see all the islands from each location and it only took us an hour or 2 to get from one island to the others.
The Diving - We used Blue Water divers and my wife was able to take her PADI course with them during the trip. I dove one of the days also and saw a shark for the first time - awesome and scary at the same time! The divers picked us up at the boat and took us to our spots. Joe coordinated with them and made it seamless.
Overall we had an extremely memorable trip and will certainly be coming back to the BVI.
