Not true. You can anchor in RT just south of the ferry dock. Lots of room in Brandwine Bay, some at Marina Cay, lots in North Sound, plenty in Anegada, several nooks and crannies around VG and the small islands North of Marina Cay. CGB still has room, as do all three bays on JVD. More anchorages are on the South side of Peter and the North side of Norman.

Prices are indeed similar to the Bahamas although some services are actually better for the same price.

All that said, I prefer the Bahamas - too many charterers and (worse) cruise ship sheeple in the BVI.

I haven't been to the SVI yet, I'm looking forward to it.

Marina Cay is like a drive-in movie on Friday night and so is Trellis Bay. Yes there are a few places left, Anegada is gorgeous, unless you have a pile of wind, which is always. My point was that all around, i have always felt that there were more accessible and cruiser friendly places elsewhere. A quick overnighter and you have SXM and the beauty of Orient. LOL.
