Pusser's Outposts

Pusser's Outposts and Webcams

You can find Pusser's Outposts all over the world and in the magical islands of the Caribbean. Here in the pristine and yet unspoiled British Virgin Islands, where trade winds rustle the palm trees, and the warm waters of the surrounding sea are a daily part of life, where sugar cane and rum are akin to the grape and champagne, lies the home of our Pusser's restaurants, bars and Pusser's Co. Stores selling our own line of Pusser's proprietary tropical apparel. And just off the east end of Tortola, lies our little island of Marina Cay with its small 8-bedroom hotel, restaurant and bar. Marina Cay is truly one of the most beautiful sites in the Caribbean. Come here now and view our live webcam images from Marina Cay and Pusser's Road Town Pub.

It all started with the rum ...

The sea and rum are synonymous, and no rum more akin to the sea and the seaman than PUSSER'S. For more than 300 years, from before the days of Nelson, wooden ships and iron men, Great Britain's Royal Navy issued a daily rum ration on board Their Majesties' ships. This tradition, one of the longest in seafaring history, continued unbroken from 1655 to July 31, 1970, on which day the Navy stopped their daily issue of Pusser's rum.

In 1979, Charles Tobias formed Pusser's West Indies in the British Virgin Islands and undertook to resurrect the Pusser's Rum tradition with which he was familiar. After much persuasion, the Admiralty Board of the Royal Navy gave him the blend for the rum and shortly afterwards, Pusser's Rum was being shipped commercially for the first time. In return, the Royal Navy Sailor's Fund, a naval charity, receives a substantial donation from the sale of each case. This contribution, aside from the Fund's original bequest, is the Fund's largest source of income.
