Optional Extras


TMM has access to some of the best skippers on the island, and can offer the following options:

Check out Skippers will familiarize you on your yacht on Day 1. See below for more information. Daily rate is $175.00*

Full Time Skippers will be onboard with you for your entire vacation and take charge of the vessel and your safety so you can relax and enjoy your sailing holiday. Daily rate is $175.00.*

American Sailing Association (ASA) Skippers are able to teach and certify you in sailing courses. Obtaining qualifications from ASA will eventually enable you to become qualified to skipper your own yacht. Daily rate is $225.00.*

Instructional Skippers will teach you and your crew to sail your yacht, however they are not able to officially certify you. This is the only difference between an ASA Instructor and an Instructional Skipper. Daily rate is $200.00.*

*All the above rates do not include the Skippers food, beverages or optional gratuity.

Please see our Skipper FAQ doc here Skippers FAQ, for detailed information about having a professional Skipper aboard for your charter. Information includes the booking process, duties and responsibilities, meals and dining ashore, and suggested gratuity.

Prior Night Sleepaboards

Sleepaboards are charged at one-half the daily charter rate, plus one night’s Cruising Tax per person. You may board at 5:00pm or later. We have facilities in our marina for showering, a convenience store next door, and casual dining options just steps away.

Paddleboards, Kayaks, Water Toys and Guitars Available

SUPs ($175/week), double sea kayaks ($140/week) and other water toys can be ordered through your broker or TMM reservation specialist. TMM also maintains two acoustic guitars available for rental ($100/week).

Fishing and Fishing Licenses

It is required that anyone over the age of 18 putting a line in the water must have a BVI fishing license. Both Last Stop Sports and Island Surf and Sail can procure yours for $60 per license ($45 for the license, $2.40 for credit card fee, and $12.60 for processing). Both these outlets also offer rentals of rods, reels, holders and gaffs.


TMM recommends Blue Water Divers, who will deliver tanks, racks and any other scuba equipment to your boat. They will pick them up again at the end of your charter - all free of charge. TMM clients also receive a reduced tank fill of $5.00/tank. Blue Water Divers also organizes rendezvous dives and will meet you at your boat at your specified date, time and location.
