All-aboard! Should I rent with or without a skipper?

Nautal offers an extensive selection of boat rentals in Tortola, ranging from bareboats to vessels with a skipper.

Skippers are experts in navigating the waters! They will handle tasks like sailing, docking, and anchoring the vessel for you. This allows you to relax and fully enjoy your vacation while basking in the sun on the deck. One of the most significant benefits of having a skipper is their local expertise. Since they are usually natives of Tortola, they know the area like the back of their hand. They could lead you to hidden gems that you might not find in any travel guide!

Whether you're an experienced sailor or a first-timer, consider renting a boat with a skipper to make the most of your time in Tortola.

  • Heavenly beaches: Tortola is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, including Cane Garden Bay, Long Bay Beach, and Brewer’s Bay. Relax on the velvety soft sand, swim in the azure waters, and soak up the sun.

Where to sail with a Tortola boat rental?

A boat charter in Tortola is a sailor’s delight due to its location! Here are some of our recommendations:

  • Virgin Gorda: This is a popular sailing destination, and it's known for its beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters, and unique rock formations, such as the Baths. Located only 30 minutes from Tortola, this is a must-see! The Baths are a number of large granite boulders formed by years of erosion.
  • Jost Van Dyke: This is another popular destination for sailors, and it's famous for its beach bars, including the famous Soggy Dollar Bar. Jost Van Dyke is also known for its unspoiled beauty and laid-back atmosphere.
  • Anegada: This is a low-lying coral island located to the northeast of Tortola, and it's known for its stunning beaches and world-class snorkeling and diving. Anegada is a popular destination for sailors, but it's important to note that the waters around the island can be tricky to navigate. It features flamingos, rare flora and rock iguanas.

When is the best time to set sail in Tortola?

The best time to rent a boat in Tortola depends on the type of sailing vacation you are seeking! Regaled for their line of sight navigation, the BVIs have become a mecca for sailors.

Which are the most popular ports in Tortola?

Road Town: Road Town is the capital of the British Virgin Islands and the largest city on Tortola. It's home to several marinas and ports, including the Road Town Port, which is the main cruise ship terminal in the British Virgin Islands.

Which type of boat is best to charter a boat in Tortola?

The type of boat that you choose for your Tortola boat rental can depend on a number of factors! It’s important to consider how long you will actually be in the water during your boat hire.

For longer yacht charters, we would recommend boats such as yachts or catamarans. These are more spacious and will have a wider range of amenities. For day long trips, RIBs, motorboats and Jet Skis will take you where you need to be.

For a more authentic sailing experience, sailboats are the perfect choice. These boats will sway in the wind which is useful to keep in mind if you are prone to seasickness.

Check out the capacity of our vessels below:

Catamaran

Our Catamarans accommodate from 8 - 14 guests and include from 4 - 8 cabins.
