Publish date:

MarineMax Vacations has partnered with the Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina to deliver charter vacations from the property.

Starting Dec. 5, Scrub Island will be the home base for MarineMax Vacations. The resort in the British Virgin Islands will serve as the hub of charter activity for MarineMax Vacations guests, offering a limited resort experience before they embark on a charter vacation.

“We are very excited to be able to host our guests at Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina for the 2017-2018 season,” Dave Bigge, MarineMax regional president, said in a statement. “This well-known destination is another component of our commitment to providing excellent vacation experiences in the islands with an award-winning private island retreat.”

All charter logistics will be managed from the resort, including boat boardings and briefings, provisioning, excursion planning and dive and water-toy rentals.

“We are looking forward to welcoming the MarineMax family of boaters to our marina,” said Federico Ciampi, manager of the resort. “With our resort open for MarineMax Vacations guests and a select number of customers in December, they will enjoy a private, relaxed atmosphere as we continue restoration of our complete inventory of accommodations and amenities following Hurricane Irma. Moving into spring, we anticipate augmenting our offerings to create an even better experience for our MarineMax customers.”
