Boating is big in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and it's even bigger in the British Virgins, which are said to have the best cruising in the Caribbean. Here are the best boat operators:
- American Yacht Harbor Marina (St. Thomas): This is one of the best bareboat and full-crew charter companies on St. Thomas, located in Red Hook. Whatever craft you're looking for, you're bound to find it here.
- The Moorings (Tortola): This is the finest charter service in the Virgin Islands. It has done more than any other outfitter to make the British Virgin Islands the destination of choice among the world's yachters. Its fleet of yachts and boats is staggering -- everything from bareboat rentals to fully crewed vessels with a skipper, crew, and cook.
