February 16-20, 2020

This was my 3rd charter in the BVI's and by far the BP was the most comfortable and clean catamaran we have encountered.

The crew of the BP (Taylor, Denise & Liz) could not have been more friendly and accommodating. From the moment we boarded till the last second of our charter. They were nothing short of AMAZING. For real..

The food on the BP was as advertised. Fresh, Fresh and more Fresh. ...
