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-5:00pm, (or arranged to match your cruise ship schedule) on 48ft sailing catamarans to beautiful Jost Van Dyke; Norman Island & The Indians; Salt, Cooper, and Peter Islands; The Baths, etc. to enjoy some of the best snorkeling the BVI has to offer. On all our day sails we make 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 were on a 12 day cruise and this was our last port of call. I am so very glad I stumbled on Aristocat. We arranged a day sail and were supposed to have 3 other couples from our ship going along. Only 2 others showed up, because the other couple was sick. This was by far the highlight of... More

We sailed on the Aristocat with Captain Peter and Matt. We enjoyed island hoping and snorkeling different locations. Peter shared his knowledge of the islands and navigated the waters like a true professional. An awesome lunch was provided and all of the adult beverages one could drink. I would recommended this to anyone. Thank you Capt. Peter

What a wonderful day sailing with the Aristocat! Our tour took us to Norman Islands and the Indians. Our two staff members were excellent! Extremely friendly and funny and truly loved their job. They were knowledgeable about the different places and things we were seeing and shared stories with us. There was ample time to go swimming and snorkeling. Lunch... More

2nd trip we've done out of the West End on this cat and another awesome experience. Knowledgeable captain and first mate made the day flawless. Lunch was great, drinks were flowing and the sites were amazing. Highly recommend this trip when on Tortola! Not to mention the best value of any day trip you could plan.

A group of us chartered the Lion heart for a day of snorkeling. We all had an excellent time. The crew constantly asked if anyone needed anything and the captain was a wealth of information on all of the history of the islands. At one spot that we stopped the sea was pretty rough, the captain jumped in the water... More

I had to quickly write a review about our recent trip so that others contemplating this excursion while visiting Tortola could know that this is the absolute best value for a days worth of sailing. From the moment we stepped on the boat we were greeted with smiles from Captain Peter and First Mate Matt. We were made to feel... More

We had an excellent day, the snorkelling is out of this world, the food is very good and there was plenty of it. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, would recommend this trip to anybody.

We contacted Aristocat Charters about three months before our trip to inquire about day sails they might be offering during hurricane season. They put us on a waiting list and asked us to check back with them closer to the date of our trip to see if they had room on a charter during our stay. We were able to... More

We booked a day sailing trip to Jost Van Dyke which actually stopped at Sandy Pit, a site between Big and Little Van Jost and then Jost Van Dyke. Motored on the way out given wind conditions which was disappointing. At Sandy Pit, anchored a bit offshore. Captain Pete did not offer life jackets or any kind of equipment. Water... More
