Brewed, Not Stirred... Bond will swap his trademark martini for a sip of the brew...Heineken! We think this is a perfect fit for us!

Sail throughout these gorgeous island chains of the BVI in order to do your bar hops and no better way to do it than onboard "Bond, James Bond!"...our brand new 4 Cabin Lagoon 450!
The ultimate 007 Catamaran! What makes this catamaran Bond worthy? We believe there are certain elements making this the ultimate 007 catamaran! Superior performance, larger deck areas, luxury f eatures below and above decks and the amazing fly bridge are just some of the key highlights onboard the new Lagoon 450.
Cruise Like Bond! We can easily picture Daniel Craig lounging above decks, on the fly bridge of this luxury 007 catamaran. We do suggest to him, to consider the Lagoon 450 as the location for the next bond Flick, don't you think? Read more on the catamaran highlights.
Dress like a Bond Girl! So you may never have a bikini body like a Bond Girl (join the club!). But you could dress like one in a piece from Peter Island Resort's upmarket Boutique & Spa. From gold watches, an exclusive Helipad to quality bikinis and sarongs; Peter Island is the spot that Bond would visit whilst sailing! Only accessible via boat!

Lettsome International Airport in the BVI. Seaborne Airlines plans to significantly increase service in 2013 to facilitate up to seven flights daily to the BVI. Over the next eight months, Seaborne Airline will be expanding its fleet of aircrafts to include the Saab 340B, which will have the capacity to hold up to 34 passengers per flight.
