Re: Newbie Liveaboard in Tortola BVI

The USVI are same as mainland. You can get a PO Box or use a commercial mail service.
If you prefer to stay in the BVI then a commercial operation may be best.

Just remember that which ever you choose you will have to go there to get your mail.

It might be best to use a US Mail service and then just have them send your mail to you wherever you are.

That's what we do and just about any marina or even a shop will let you use their address, sometimes for free.

I recommended using They forward your mail wherever you are, send you email each time you have mail and you can review it on the internet, and upon request they will open your letter and scan it's contents to you. I have been very happy with this service.
