Get the most out of your holiday sailing time by taking advantage of new lower fares through San Juan to Beef Island. Just minutes from our base at Hodges Creek Marina, you will be sailing faster than you can say "Happy Holidays!"
Spending the Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year weeks with family and friends is the longstanding tradition in most of the Western world. However after a couple decades of scraping ice off of car windows, shoveling snow and being bundled up, many start to wonder if there is another way to spend the holidays.
It used to be that only those with the resources could pack up the family and head to tropical locales for the December holidays. Even then, patience needed to be their virtue as they spent considerable time transferring from subways, trains, planes, ferries and automobiles to get to their island paradise. But with expanded air travel and consistent commuter planes to smaller islands offering better connections and affordable fares, a family of four with grandparents in tow can be on a Lagoon 450 catamaran in no time choosing a flight through San Juan to Beef Island on Tortola’s east end, just minutes away from our base at Hodges Creek Marina.
InterCaribbean is the new airline in town and is going after the market share hard offering the lowest rates and most flight options as of this writing. Weekly holiday rates are running in the $180s round trip based on Wednesday to Wednesday December 12 to 20 for Hanukah, December 20 to 27 for Christmas and December 27 to January 3 for New Years. Other options into Beef Island from San Juan include Seaborne Airlines, Cape Air, LIAT and Winair. These flights are an excellent alternative to flying into St Thomas and taking the ferry across to Road Town, saving as much as an entire day of travel.

The research shows that flights for key holiday periods start off at normal levels and then they just keep going up as seats are sold and the date approaches. There are no last-minute deals on flights just before or after Christmas, at least to and from these coveted sunshine destinations.
Add to that there is a limited number of catamarans available for charter each week. You will want to move quickly to get the newest, most luxurious and best maintained catamarans for charter in the BVI. Available only at The Catamaran Company.
