Just got back from the BVI. Cruising permits are $4.00 per person/day. It was an extra $50.00 for a national park permit
for 4 people for a week. That allows you to pick up any national park mooring
for day use at dive sites like the indians, the dogs
, the caves, etc. Every mooring
we picked up was $25.00, but I hear there are some more expensive ones associated with certain resorts. There are plenty of places to anchor
though, so I don't think that would be a problem. Also, many of the mooring fees
include things like free ice, free 100gal of water
, or discount on dinner if you eat at their restaurant. FWIW, we were there in the shoulder season (Nov 28 to Dec 3) and never saw a mooring field that was full.
