Overview

Charter and snorkel the marvel-worthy islands of the BVI on board our comfortable 40 foot sailing catamaran "Tropical Spirit". Whether you are visiting any of our BVI ports on a cruise ship or staying in an idyllic villa or relaxing resort on Tortola or Virgin Gorda, we have the perfect itinerary for you, and an award winning crew to make you feel at home on board. When you are staying on land anywhere in the BVI, we will collect you at your nearest marina for a private charter or when you launch a join in itinerary. When you are on a cruise ship visiting any of the BVI's ports, we arrange hassle-free collection as you step off the ship. We are contracted with Disney Cruise Lines, AIDA and Windstar so look for our tours as part of the ship's arranged excursions. Guests of all other major cruise lines regularly book us for their tailor-made private or join-in charters. These cruise lines include Azamara Club Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL), MSC Cruises, Oceania Cruises, P&O Cruises, Phoenix Reisen, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Royal Caribbean, Seabourn Cruise Line, SeaDream Yacht Club, TUI Cruises, Viking Ocean Cruises, and more. Book your private charter or join in charter and be prepared to leave our deck with a heart full of memories. Looking forward to having you on board!

Was this the company used by Windstar for their ship operated excursions? If so, can you provide more details? Where did you go on each of the trips? What time did you leave and return? Thank you!!
