Travel Tips

Our crew is happy to provide you with travel tips to ensure that your stay on board Pas de Deux will be the most enjoyable.

Where to go?

Pas De Deux has its port of residence in Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands.

Beef Island, Tortola Airport is the top recommendation for a smooth easy transition to the yacht. The captain may walk or arrange a transfer to whisk you away from the airport and onto Pas De Deux in twenty minutes. Entering the British Virgin Islands directly will avoid customs out and back in to the USVI which have increased significantly since 9/11/01.

St. Thomas Charlotte Amalie Airport may be used to arrive. Guests may taxi to Red Hook Marina to meet the crew and be ferried by dinghy or they will need to ride a one hour ferry over to the yacht base in Road Town, Tortola. For St. Thomas airport departures, guests and crew must check-in through a U.S. Customs and Immigration office in St. John which may take up to 4 hours and operates on a somewhat unpredictable schedule. Airport immigration check-in is not available.

What to do?

A visit to one of the resorts on St. John USVI is frequently combined with charter vacations. The captain may pick-up or drop guests directly in Cruz Bay, St. John where the immigration office is preferable to St. Thomas for re-entering the U.S.

What to bring?

Soft sided suitcases or bags are recommended for yacht charter travelers. Storage in the staterooms is found in two very large drawers under the beds, additional shelves and a hanging locker. The crew can accommodate additional sports gear in deck lockers.

Dress attire in the Virgin Islands is casual to enjoy the breezy and sunny weather. Once aboard you will enjoy the elegant furnishings and treatment along with the barefoot style of our captain and chef.
