Prime Time Crew Profile
Capt Joe your skipper, owner and cook joined the US Navy at age 17 and has been Captaining ships ever since. He has run cruise ships, casino boats, worked in the oil industry, and the state run ferries in Louisiana, basically anything that floats he can drive.He moved to the BVI in 1999 and has been running a successful charter business since. Joe possibly runs one of the oldest charter businesses here in the BVI, needless to say his local knowledge and experience is second to none.
Michael is from the spice Island of Grenada, he also has worked on cruise ships (Star Clipper Line, P&O) and has traveled the world, Michael was running a ;local cargo boat when Irma shower her ugly face and ended up on the rocks of North Sound Virgin Gorda. Michael has been with Prime Time for over a year and loves taking the guests out with the tender, to dinner and drinks at night and fishing with the little ones from the back of the boat while at anchor (he does this most nights)
The crew want people to be comfortable, and act like they would at home, we are very laid back. Our Companies Motto has always been ´Come as Guests...Leave as Friends...´ that still holds true while running Prime Time but we have added a new one for the niche we plan on filling in this industry, ´Yachting on a Beer Budget´. With that mentality we also want our guests to ´embrace the local culture´, which is why we only do breakfast and lunches onboard we believe that a yacht charter here in the BVI is so much more than just being on a beautiful boat for 7 days. Your Crew wants you to enjoy the things that ´we do´, whether that be local BBQ or fish fry, drinks on the beach or just chilling on your own private beach we will make your time with us a memorable one.
Whether you choose to charter the entire yacht or join us for our monthly ´cabin only charters´ you will not be disappointed. The Yacht is totally comfortable and luxurious, the crews´ attention to detail is what is expected in this industry and Joes´ home cooked meals are maybe not as good as ´Moms´, but run a close second :)

Prime Time Guest Reviews
Christmas week, 2019, aboard PRIME TIME - The guest said:
We spent a week with Joe and Mike on ´Prime Time´, It was an amazing experience. There was ample toys on board for water sports ( wake-boarding, several stand-up paddle boards, sea-kayaks, etc), we also saw the great spots of the BVI: Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, etc. The setting was beautiful but Joe and Mike were able to make our experience extra special by quickly adapting the itinerary to our wants and preferences.
Prime Time is in excellent condition as well as its tender. The rooms are really nice and there is a very good amount of outdoor space to enjoy the sun. Joe is a wonderful cook, the majority of our charter ended up making his biscuit and gravy recipe after we were back.
Overall, it was an incredible and and unforgettable experience. If you are looking to charter a yacht in the BVI, you cannot go wrong with Captain Joe, Mike and Prime Time.

As recent empty-nesters we didn´t want to charter an entire vessel, so our broker found us Prime Time. We excitedly booked and were upgraded to the king suite; omg his and her bathrooms for an entire week!!! Completely by chance, our October weather conditions were ideal, and because it wasn´t quite ´season,´ we literally had the Islands to ourselves. Spectacular snorkeling everyday, and Captain Joe was very accommodating, getting us to all the great spots, and even encouraging us old-timers to try out the SUP and ZUP board (which i mastered)! He went above and beyond by offering his vehicle for us to explore Tortola! The boat vibe was very comfortable and relaxed and laid-back, exactly our style. My happy place was with my butt in the bean bag on the bow with a drink in my hand every time we were under way!!! #beanbagonthebow

Incredible week on Prime Time cruising through the BVI
I booked this trip for my wife´s 40th birthday. There were 6 of us on the trip and we stayed on the boat for 8 days. We toured all of the islands in the BVI, went scuba diving (saw sharks!), hit all of the awesome beaches and beach bars and even took a jump from the top of the yacht into the water 40 feet down! Joe (Captain), Michael (1st Mate) and Londa (Chef) made sure that anything we needed was taken care of and ensured each day had something new and fun to do.
A little more detail: The Boat - The boat is plenty large for 3 couples. We spent most of the boat time on the wide open top deck catching sun or shade while enjoying cocktails. There was a ton of room up there and the breeze was great. We used the main level of the boat for some games at night and watched a couple movies. The boat had hi-speed wifi for the entire journey. Netflix and facetime worked just fine to watch movies and stay in touch with our kids. Lower deck rooms were a great place to escape the heat and catch a cat nap. I slept in the master and must say that the bed was more comfortable than I was expecting.
The Food- Londa was the chef on board and the food was incredible. Regardless of the menu, she made every dish taste great. We had Mahi Mahi, Pork chops, BBQ ribs, West Indian Roti and Lobster to name a few. All were amazing. We even asked us to use the left over lobster for lobster mac the next day and that was awesome too. Really impressed with her...
The BVI - What a great place. I have been throughout most of the Caribbean and really loved how the BVI. It is quite arid in comparison to Jamaica or some others but still beautiful, mountainous and sandy. Also, the people were terrific - never had an issue. I loved how we could see all the islands from each location and it only took us an hour or 2 to get from one island to the others.
The Diving - We used Blue Water divers and my wife was able to take her PADI course with them during the trip. I dove one of the days also and saw a shark for the first time - awesome and scary at the same time! The divers picked us up at the boat and took us to our spots. Joe coordinated with them and made it seamless.
Overall we had an extremely memorable trip and will certainly be coming back to the BVI. Thanks Joe!
