Cruising Ground Information
In general, there are many outlets offering a range of services in the BVI cruising area. Major items and fuel are normally available only from the larger outlets, harbours and marinas, such as: Soper's Hole, Nanny Cay, Road Town, Hodges Creek, Leverick Bay, Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour and Bitter End Yacht Club. Other outlets that provide water, ice and a wide variety of provisions can be found at Cane Garden Bay, Trellis Bay, Penn's Landing, Jost Van Dyke and other locations throughout the islands.
Note: Footloose yachts at the Tortola Base are provided with navigation charts for the British Virgin Islands cruising area only.
Sailing Area Restrictions
With their first deposit, charterers receive a sailing chart that outlines red zones for the cruising ground. This will also be covered in the chart briefing.
The National Parks Trust protects a number of reefs and areas. When cruising the waters of the BVI, clients will be required to buy a Parks permit to enable him to pick up the day mooring balls. A National Park Fee is charged in advance.
Please note, these are protected areas: Prickly Pear, West Dog, Spring Bay, The Baths Devils Bay, Fallen Jerusalem, The Caves, The Indians and the Wreck of the Rhone.
