Operating out of Trellis Bay, the North Sound Express is one of the only ways to get to the popular Bitter End Yacht Club – if you aren't sailing your own watercraft that is.

North Sound Express (NSX) hits up several locations around the British Virgin Islands, including Beef Island, the Bitter End Yacht Club Dock, the airport on Tortola, and Virgin Gorda.   Because guests who travel aboard NSX are making their way between just the British Virgin Islands and not heading to the U.S. Chain, there is no passport required for the trip.  Reservations are required if you plan to use this service, so after you've reviewed the charts and determined when you'll be traveling with NSX, make sure to call them so they will hold your seat.
