Welcome to Our Base
Ahoy there! What a gem the British Virgin Islands are . . . Take it from us here at The Catamaran Company! Our charter base is located in Hodges Creek Marina on the island of Tortola. When you live in paradise there are no bad days! Our lovely receptionist Mynova will greet you with a huge smile as soon as you arrive at the base. She will make your check in and check out a breeze so you can maximize your vacation time. If you have any extra concerns or questions, Marianne will be right there to answer you. She has been in the business for over 30 years, so there is nothing she cannot handle. Your catamaran will be in tiptop shape awaiting your arrival!
With pristine beaches, towering mountains, and crystal clear blue water, the British Virgin Islands is one vacation destination that will not disappoint! Not only does it offer a diverse assortment of things to do, it is considered the best place to sail a catamaran due to the close proximity of all the many beautiful islands.
Here at The Catamaran Company, we pride ourselves in the ability to offer guests unforgettable memories aboard our bareboat charters. You pick where you want to go and what you want to do! Do you like adventure? If so, we can add diving and snorkeling equipment, plus a kayak! We will point you in the direction of the beautiful reefs surrounding Anegada and the world famous Baths on Virgin Gorda. Would you rather relax? No problem. Sail to Peter Island, which offers a beautiful resort with unforgettable spa treatments. No matter your plan, one of our brokers will help you figure out the perfect itinerary for your vacation. You are both the captain of the fun and your boat!
How to Get Started
A deposit of 25% of the charter's fee is required to confirm your charter. Upon receipt of the deposit, your booking confirmation will be emailed to you with your own personal login and password to our reservations system with all your charter details. All we ask is that you login within the first 48 hours to electronically sign the contract and complete your skipper resume.
At the Base
Boarding time is 5:00pm. Before beginning your bareboat charter, a yacht familiarization and chart briefing will be conducted at the base. All of your questions will be answered at this time. If you are unsure about sailing a catamaran on your own, your charter consultant will discuss your qualifications during the booking process. To enhance your sailing experience, hire an instructional skipper for a couple of days or for the entire trip! They will cover jibing, tacking, anchoring and general catamaran sailing with you as well as acting as your personal "yacht briefer" and more often than not, will speed up the hand-over process at the base which will get you on the water faster. Instructional Skipper day rate applies.
You invest a lot of time and money in your charter vacation. That's why we are pleased to offer our Trip Protection Program. This special coverage protects your investment both prior to and during your charter vacation. This protection program covers cancellations, postponements and charter interruptions. The premium for this "safety net" is only 7% of the total charter cost. Without this coverage, the following CANCELLATION TERMS apply: Cancel 90 days or more prior to charter departure and a fee of $599 will apply: 60 to 89 days before departure and 50% deposit is lost; and if a charter is cancelled 59 days or less there is no refund given.
