Going to Charter in the BVI

Hey,
New here, but I just wanted to be steered in the right direction. I am going to charter in the BVI after getting my ASA 101-104 certs and a little experience. Anyone know where a general discussion would be for this type of trip? I want to plan it out for a 39-45 ft monohaul or cat but I have never taken on planning the vacation, (tortola, BVI charter) (and if im the "skipper" ill have to be in charge!!"

any help please?

Skyhawk,
There are cheaper places to charter. We did our first charters after the ASA classes around the Tampa/Fort Myers area. The wind there is usually pretty good and there are lots of places to explore and tie up to at the end of the day. Edgemont Key is still one of my favorite places to visit.

I can highly recommend Conch Charters in the BVI.

Not the newest boats, but good service and nice people.

Conch Charters
