I chartered one to three times per year in the BVI from 1982 until about 2006. I've only been down about four times since then. I do keep in touch with friends there.
What follows is my opinion. I think it is educated and experienced opinion, but it is opinion none the less.
I used Ample Hamper through the 90s and was quite happy with them. Bobby's cropped up sometime in there (I forget when) and after a few years I tried them. I've been quite happy with them. Riteway (RTW) also has a lot of followers. In my view Bobby's and RTW are quite close in price
, quality, and service
with Ample Hamper following behind. You will likely be satisfied with any of them. Tico and Caribbean
Cellars are the best places (on Tortola) for alcohol, soft drinks, and water
All five places will deliver to your boat or to a ferry
if you are off Tortola.
I'm heading back to Tortola this Fall (first time on my own boat!) and have already started my Bobby's order. I'll finalize it before I leave and e-mail Bobby's with a final delivery
date a day or so out from the BVI. I'll do the same with Tico's. I expect to take delivery
in Soper's, although it make take a couple of trips with the dinghy
(big delivery crew, three weeks in BVI).
If you are indeed set on Ample Hamper you'll likely be pleased. If you choose Bobby's or RTW you are likely to spend less for food as good or better.
All that said, for special stuff I like to cruise
the Ample Hamper store in Soper's where I can look and feel things.
For those who are really into seafood there is a small place on Tortola that has a good reputation. I haven't used Sailor's Ketch
myself but people I have confidence in speak highly of it.
