Just dreaming or planning your next dive. Come down to Trellis Bay on Beef island on the East end of Tortola. Wander along the beach and take in the ambience of the calm water and Caribbean beach.
Join in with locals and tourists alike as they sit at the waters edge and sip a coffee from the coffee shop right next door to us, or grab a cold one form one of the beach bars. Pop into the grocery store to pick up much needed supplies of ice for your hotel room or to provision your yacht.
Trellis Bay has over night moorings in one of the calmest bays in the BVI and is home to three restaurant's with live music nightly and is also the home of the Full Moon Party and Fire Balls.
The best thing about having a location in a small beach community is that there is always something going on even if it is at island pace, and after a day's diving you can meet new friends and swap your favorite dive stories. Here is one of our favorites.
From January to April each year the Humpback Whales migrate through our waters. We were lucky enough in March 2000 to have two groups of divers on two boats spend over an hour and a half with a mother and her calf.
TONY "...it took me over 30 minutes to realize I couldn't swim up to the whales as they would dive away immediately. Once I started to swim away from them they would become curious and swim towards me. They would always stay together but it was almost like they wanted to meet us and become friends."
DREW ( one of our guests on that day) "As we were getting tired it was as if they knew we had been in the water with them for so long they understood that we were not a threat. They would swim right next to us - so close but always knowing exactly where we were so they wouldn't bump into us. The Whales would look at us with their whole eyes that would blink with a second flap of skin going up and down. They were so big and I felt so small but at no time did I ever feel like they would hurt us. It was one on the most exhilarating moments of my life."
