BVI - What's Open After Hurricane Irma

BVI Open for Business

Restaurants & Stores Open after Hurricane Irma

Planning a yacht charter vacation in the British Virgin Islands? Use our convenient listing to stay up-to-date on what's open in the BVI cruising grounds following September's record-breaking hurricane activity.

In December of 2017, we sent two Moorings staff members to tour the BVI to bring you even more first-hand accounts of current conditions. BVI beaches and waters are still absolutely beautiful, and snorkeling, diving, kayaking and paddle boarding conditions are excellent as well.

Use the following as a quick reference to some of our charter guests' favorites, but keep in mind that this is not a comprehensive listing. Rest assured, though, there are hundreds of establishments throughout the islands that are open and waiting to welcome you back!
