About us

BoatyBall.com was created to provide boaters with a more secure way to pay, stay, and play. Every BoatyBall mooring has been professionally installed and is in an active maintenance program so you can relax and enjoy your stay. BoatyBall.com has mooring balls in prime locations throughout the British Virgin Islands. The web based program allows boaters to reserve moorings and spend more time on the water.

Boaters can create an account at BoatyBall.com. Once an account has been created boaters can reserve and pay for moorings through the web based application. Moorings become available every morning at 7 am local time and they go fast so we recommend logging into your account a few minutes before 7:00 am.

Every mooring in BoatyBall has been professionally installed and is in an active maintenance program. One of the pleasures of the BVI is the multitude of moorings in the most beautiful bays in the world. However, not all moorings are installed properly or maintained and it is very difficult as a boater to determine which moorings are secure. If your mooring fails, your dream vacation can quickly turn into a nightmare. With BoatyBall.com all mooring balls are professionally installed, maintained, and insured so you can stay with confidence.

BoatyBall.com is committed to taking the stress out of your stay in the BVI. If you have any suggestions, comments, or feedback on how we can improve your experience please let us know.

Our story

We love the BVI and everything it has to offer.   The only stress and anxiety that we have experienced in the BVI were around finding moorings in the BVI, so we set out to create a solution to make the perfect vacation even better.  Fortunately, there are hundreds of moorings in settings that can only be described as paradise.

Various municipalities have installed these mooring balls to generate income, encourage tourism, and protect reefs and the seagrass floor from the damage anchoring can cause.  However, these mooring balls are in high demand and it is not uncommon to see multiple boats jockeying for the same mooring ball.  This is stressful and can be unsafe. Also, we have learned over the years that not all mooring balls are installed properly or maintained, making it hard to relax once tied up to a mooring.

We came up with the idea of BoatyBall.com after pulling into one of our favorite bays early one afternoon to find out that every mooring ball had been taken.  A storm was coming so we quickly headed over to another bay and found one available mooring ball.  But as we tied off to it, we realized it was damaged.  At this point the storm was on us and we had to go to a third bay to find a mooring. We did not have time to dive down and check the mooring to make sure it was secure, so we had to trust that it would hold us through the storm.  That night we came up with the concept of BoatyBall.com.

My wife loves knowing in the morning that we have a place reserved for that night, my kids love spending more time diving and snorkeling during the day, and I sleep better at night knowing that I am tied up to a mooring ball that has been professionally installed and maintained.  We hope you will give BoatyBall.com a try during your next trip to the BVI.
