We did a bareback cat for a week end of Feb the year after the storm and the damage was unreal. there were 4 couples on the 48' or so boat.
I have heard that things are a lot better now. Even when we were there- there were Lots of things to see and do. We had a Blast.
They have some smaller boats w 2 and 3 cabins too.

If you are thinking about it- Do It - You will not be disappointed.

You need to buy her an island for what she's gonna have to put up with being married to you. 😂

You have to rent a power cat and see the islands that way. Do not go down there and stay in a hotel. All of the islands are very close and short hops from one another, so it is pretty easy to get around, but like i said, dont rent a center console for day trips and think you are going to get the whole experience.

Ive been years before , stayed on VG ... was thinking we would do that too. Id like to island hop a couple places. What is the situation with renting a boat? Can you drive the thing wherever you want ? Need a captain ?
