Owner description: Aristocat Charters is listed on Trip Advisor as the # 1 Day Charter company in Tortola... why don't you come and find out why! The friendliest and best day sail trip in the BVI, offering a FULL DAY sail, 9:30am-4:30pm, or arranged to match your cruise ship schedule, on our 50ft sailing catamaran or 32' powerboat to beautiful Norman Island & The Indians; Cooper & Peter Islands; Jost Van Dyke; The Baths, etc. to enjoy some of the best snorkeling the BVI has to offer. Most of our itineraries include a MINIMUM of 3 stops at different locations to swim and snorkel on some great reefs, in the clearest water in the Caribbean. Help yourself to the open bar and enjoy the extensive buffet lunch, freshly prepared and served on board. We look forward to having you aboard!

Chartering with Aristocat was the best day of our Tortola vacation hands down!! The boat was top notch, the drinks flowed freely, the lunch was 5 star and the sights were gorgeous! Our group loved every minute of our time with Aristocat! We can't wait to get on that boat again! Also, Captain Scott is a cool and down to earth dude, you won't be disappointed!! Support Tortola's small local businesses and have a blast!!!

My wife and I are big planners when it comes to preparing for our vacations. We always wanted to go to the Virgin Islands and do a snorkeling excursion to experience the first class coral and sea life. We picked Aristocat Charters to guide us on our adventure and were not disappointed. Led by Captain Mike and First mate Jorn, we ventured out to several sites among Norman Islands and the Indians. The crew was very experienced and were happy to pass on their knowledge of the area, the sea life we encountered (barracudas, sting rays, and sea turtles included), and any safety measures we needed to know. They took all worries out of the equation. Tack on a delicious lunch with unlimited beverages (including rum punch) and we couldn't have asked for a better day. Are you traveling by cruise ship? Not to worry, they pick up and drop off with plenty of time to spare.

Having sailed on the Aristocat 9 years ago we were not disappointed with our return sail on the Lionheart last month. Slightly different this time as we were accompanied by a 7 and 5 year old!
We all had a fantastic day, kids were delighted to see turtles, stingray, jellyfish and plenty of fish, it was the highlight of their holiday. 7 year old swam round the Indians. Crew were fab, lunch great and the rum punch was flowing.
Highly recommend for a brilliant day out
Thank you!

We had to reschedule our original saliling date due to a big storm in the BVI, luckily they were able to accomodate us on another date. We had a great time snorkeling in Cooper Island and exploring the Baths in Virgin Gorda. Captain Mike and 1st Mate Jorn were great, very attentive, informative and friendly. Totally recommend Aristocat Charters and for sure we'll go to them to explore other islands and bring our friends and family when they visit us.

Wendy and I would like to insist that anyone visiting Tortola should go for a day's sailing with Aristocat. We were so fortunate to get two fabulous skippers, Mike and Bjorn, as it was season's end and their other boats had already been packed away. They were incredibly experienced, personable, professional and knew all the best places to snorkel. Not only that but they went the extra mile and pointed out exactly where turtles were while we were snorkeling. At the Indians, Mike even accompanied us to ensure we didn't miss the tunnel or get stuck half way through! I cannot accentuate what a brilliant time we had with these guys and cannot thank them enough for making our last day an exceptional day. It should also be noted that Aristocat provides a great free lunch as well as free drinks and snorkeling gear. Simply the best service we experienced on the water bar none.
