For boat rentals from STT to JVD, does anyone here skip customs?

My wife and I have passports but my children whose ages are in their low 20's do not have passports. Does BVI Customs enforce Soggy Dollar clearance? Last time we rented a boat for this day trip US Birth Certificates were allowed but this was several years ago. Thanks for your response.

DO NOT TRY TO SKIP CUSTOMS! There are multiple stories of people being boarded (and injured in the process), losing boats, and spending time in Her Majesty's prison. They do not fool around.

If they dont have passports, they will not be allowed to board the boat ifthey intend to go to the BVI. They will check ur passport to.

Also, I dont know how many years ago you are referring to, but back in the late 60's you had to have a passport, i know this for a fact.
