***Prices do not include fuel, captain’s gratuity or customs fees if you’re traveling to the British Virgin Islands. Please remember to tip your captains: island-norm is 15-20% of the cost of your boat trip.
Depending on your destinations, St Thomas power boat rental fuel costs range from $100-$250. Both of our boats are equipped with very fuel efficient Yamaha 4-stroke outboards, and fuel costs for all of our trips are very manageable given the distance that we cover. When booking your St Thomas power boat rental, let us know if you have an itinerary in mind and we can give you an estimate of what the fuel cost will be. Typically fuel range is between $175-$225 but trips to Virgin Gorda are closer to $300 in fuel.
All passengers entering the British Virgin Islands are required to pay a $40 customs fee and it must be paid in cash. This is collected upon boarding the boat, so please make sure to remember this. If you are travelling to the British Virgin Islands National Park (The Indians, Caves, The Baths), there is an additional $6/pp charge.
WHAT TO BRING:
Sunscreen – please do not bring spray or sport lotion as this turns the boat orange!
Cash – at least $40 for customs per person (for BVI trips)
**Passports are required for all BVI destinations!!
***While we do our best to give you the an idea of what the fees will be, they are subject to change depending on the day of the week (Sundays are extra) and time of the year (BVI holidays, festivals). The charter guests are responsible for covering all customs fees, dock fees, and any other fees that may apply.***
