Getting to the British Virgin Islands

Flights

Fly to the island of Antigua into V.C. Bird International Airport (airport code ANU) or San Juan, Puerto Rico (airport code SJU) and then hop on a short flight directly into Tortola’s Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (airport code EIS), a 30’ taxi from the marina in Nanny Cay.

You can also fly to Cyril E. King Airport (STT) which is on the USA side of the Virgin Islands from where you can take a ferry (see “Ferry” section below)
Just remember you'll need to go through US and British customs. We recommend using a search engine to find the best flights:

Ferry

If you are flying into the US Virgin Islands you'll need to get a ferry from Charlotte Amalie to Tortola (Road Town), prices are around $60 pp and a journey time of 45’.  You will then be a 15’ taxi ride away from the marina in Nanny Cay.

Visas

We recommend using VisaHQ to find out if you require any visas to enter the country - www.visahq.co.uk

Getting to your marina

Our check-in marina is Nanny Cay on the Virgin Island of Tortola. 

Getting to Nanny Cay Marina

From Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport (EIS)

Take a 30’ taxi from the airport to Nanny Cay Marina. Prices are around $15 per person (for 3 or more) and $36 for 1-2 persons.

Local departure taxes

There is a US$50 tax for all passengers, payable on leaving the BVI by air. This is generally included in the ticket price. If you’re departing the BVI by ferry, a departure tax of US$20 per person is payable. Visitors arriving by air or sea are also charged an Environmental and Tourism levy of US$10 on arrival.
