MarineMax planned an itinerary for new charter customers to explore the BVI with other first-timers.

MarineMax Vacations has announced an inaugural first-timer flotilla in the British Virgin Islands.

The group will host two trips this year; the first will take place from Feb. 29-March 6 and the second will run May 2-8, according to the company.

“These trips are specially designed for first-timers, although second-timers, third-timers, and more are welcome to join,” said MarineMax charter division vice president Raul Bermudez in a statement. “The flotilla is a perfect way for those new to chartering, with an irresistible urge to experience the British Virgin Islands by sea.”

The MarineMax Vacations first-timer flotilla seeks to give people an opportunity to explore the BVI with a group of other charter boaters and a planned itinerary led by the MarineMax Vacations team.
