Catamaran Salty Girl : Short Charter Special Offer

SALTY GIRL (a 40-foot, 3-cabin Leopard catamaran) is offering special rates for guests wanting more than a day-sail, but who do not have the time or are not ready to commit to a full weeks' charter.

Catamaran Salty Girl - All inclusive catamaran charters in the Virgin Islands

While many charter yachts will not accept a booking for less than 4 or 5 nights, Tresa and Philip are happy to offer these trips, specifically designed to tempt villa and resort guests into giving yacht chartering a try.

Many villas and resorts are still closed for repair caused by September's hurricanes but the charter yacht sector bounced back fairly quickly. The beach bars didn't take much to get back on line and we still have excellent diving & snorkelling. Fewer cruiseships and resorts means more Paradise for you! Come on down and charter Catamaran Salty Girl for the weekend. Mid-week works, too, as well as full weeks. Don't you deserve a quick getaway?

Inquire and find out if your dates are available!

View Salty Girl's online brochure to learn more. Contact Paradise Connections: Send us an email for info and current availability.


The following special rates are for all-inclusive charters (boat, crew, full board, use of boat's "toys", port taxes and permits, air conditioning, etc).

  • 2 night, 3 days USVI only adventure
    2 guests=$2850  3=$2950  4=$3100  5=$3200  6=$3325
  • 2 night, 3 days USVI & BVI adventure
    2 guests=$3000  3=$3150  4=$3300  5=$3475  6=$3650

Hurricane Recovery - St Martin

Just a few photos to show you hurricane recovery taking place on the island of St Martin.

Photo credit: AFP
 This site has a post with photos taken just after Hurricane Irma and a comparison photo of the same scene 6 months later (has it really been 6 months already?). It refers to AFP's (Agence France Presse) Facebook page. I really appreciate user Poisson Rouge pointing this out as we do not use Facebook.

To view, go here. Click on a pair of photos and a pop-up photo window appears with the photos enlarged. Just below the black photo box are the player controls in a white font which I found difficult to see. There are 9 pairs of interesting pictures, so scroll through them.





We have many yachts available for charter.

VI RECOVERY - Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke

The hurricane recovery for the Virgin Islands (both USVI and BVI) is progressing along.

This afternoon we received this message from BVI Traveller about Foxy's ...



Foxy is Having a Party and EVERYONE is Invited to His 50th Anniversary Celebration!

March 18, 2018

Foxy is having a party and EVERYONE is invited.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 24, 2018 to celebrate 50 FOXY YEARS on Jost Van Dyke.

After unbelievable destruction to his bar and all of Jost Van Dyke, Foxy has worked to quickly get the world famous Foxy's Tamarind Bar open for business. Foxy has been on-site constantly, encouraging everyone with his positive songs and spirit!

On his Facebook page Foxy said, "The roof is still patchy, there is still random debris. The new "floating dock" makes drunken dinghy rides home a wee bit of a challenge. But we are getting stronger every day. Hope you're coming to see us soon!"

Recently, Foxy's held their first Famous Friday Beach BBQ of the 2017/2018 season. Rumor has it there was juicy ribs, grilled chicken, mahi mahi and oh, that pasta salad to enjoy! Not to mention lots of rum, jokes by Foxy and shakin' your thing on the dance floor.

Foxy says, "Come one, come all to Foxy's. Even Irmaria can't hold us back!"
