The British Virgin Islands offer the best bareboat charters in the world. If this is your first time, you may have some concerns. The solution: Let WRA Caribbean Air Service pick you up in San Juan. Just tell your travel agent to book the best round trip to San Juan. Then let WRA Caribbean provide your bareboat charter crew with a narrated tour of the BVI sailing area before landing in Tortola. (Weather permitting). It isn't often you get extra for less, but the cost of your own personal charter to the BVI will usually be lower than your normal charter rate when combined with your low price to San Juan.
