All the BVI Operators, the BVI Tourist Board and many local venues are working to bring you an amazing array of events and special offers to help you get an insider’s look into our seafaring history, traditions and current restoration projects. We will share some of our pirate lore – yes Blackbeard really was here in the BVI. This period only spanned a few decades, but has certainly caught the attention of story tellers like Robert Louis Stevenson. Having recently suffered the effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the telling of the Victorian era’s RMS Rhone tragedy will ring very true to most of us here in the BVI. We are also honored to be able to share the amazing and unique BVI boat building heritage which created the famed Tortola Sloops, responsible for critical trade in the early part of the 20th Century.
