British Virgin Islands Irma Recovery Update

BVI Irma Recovery Update: The Only Thing Missing Is You!

The destruction caused by Hurricane Irma in the British Virgin Islands was significant and the islands have been in strong restoration made evident by the daily advances they made in preparation for welcoming visitors this charter season. Now, the islands are back, the people are ready, and the scenery is spectacular. The only thing missing is YOU!

We Are Open!  It's Time To Vacation In The Islands

To aid in the rejuvenation of the islands and kick off the opening of charter season this December, MarineMax will be donating 10% of your new charter booking fee to the BVI Relief effort.* This means your support of the British Virgin Islands will be further impacted by our donation.

This donation offer is available for new charter vacation reservations for travel between December 1, 2017 and March 1, 2018 aboard our charter fleet in the British Virgin Islands.
