What to bring:

  • Passport

  • Cash, credit cards and an ATM card – by comparison to the US, few vendors accept cards. Both the British and US Virgin Islands use the US Dollar (smaller bills are best).

  • Swimwear & cover-ups

  • Hat

  • Sunglasses

  • Athletic shoes or trainers for active days ashore

  • Casual, quick-drying clothes for jaunts ashore (shorts, t-shirts)

  • One or two outfits for a nice dinner ashore (ladies: casual dress or shorts & blouse; men: collared shirts)

  • Light sweater or long-sleeve shirt for breezy evenings

  • Lightweight rain jacket (most often used as a windbreaker)

  • Mineral sunscreen & after-sun creams

  • Personal toiletries & medications


S/V Allende has both 110V AC power (US standard) and 12V DC power. Outlets are American-style 3 prong.

  • Splashproof containers for phones, etc.

  • Camera

  • Extra batteries or charger for your electronics

  • Kindle, iPad, magazines or books

Helpful, but not necessary:

  • Snorkeling gear. We have 6 sets on board, but you may prefer your own if you already have it

  • Music! Bring a pre-loaded electronic device with headphone jack or USB cord so you have control of the soundtrack

What NOT to bring:

  • Hard-sided suitcases

  • More than what you need: storage space is at a premium onboard and in your cabin
