Welcome Aboard!

On Arrival at Tortola International Airport, you will be met by your driver with Welcome to the Caribbean!  ready to take you to your yacht for embarkation. Embarkation may be via tender or at dock. Upon embarkation we start with the Welcome Aboard! Cocktail and of course the difficult questions for the week “Do we go East or West??”,  your Captain will help out on that one so sit back and relax whilst the anchor is raised and the boat pointed towards Virgin Gorda, the biggest bay in the BVI’s, and the home of ‘The Bitter End’, famous for cocktails and limbo dancing. 


Once you are on your way, the Chef begins to make dinner meanwhile you have also jumped in the beautiful waters to begin your Caribbean experience. Here the water is always perfectly calm and a good way to get your sea legs. Get ready your journey begins!

Going Local 

Uninhabited Guana Island. A great place to swim and have lunch.  You Captain will slowly head across to Rogues Point, an absolutely stunning beach with palm trees and pure white sand followed by Cane Garden Bay. An incredibly long beach with great bars and restaurants. If a bit of Caribbean nightlife is your thing then an evening here listening to the sounds of live Caribbean music is a must do!

Letting it all sink in

A good cup of coffee to wake up , breakfast on the aft deck reliving the festivities of the night before  and then off to Jost van Dyke, famous for Foxy’s Bar and restaurant. Foxy himself is a legend here and still sits in the bar entertaining. Around the corner is a true Caribbean beach, snow white, hence the name White Bay, and lined with ramshackle bars, each with it’s own personality. A day in a deck chair here being served Pina Coladas in the water is enhanced with early hors d’ouvres aboard Malena before a sumptuous dinner or a trip to Foxy’s for a barbeque or just to listen to Foxy play.

Off for some shopping 

Browse the local stores for presents or a t-shirt that will most surely turn into a pajama. Then it’s off to Norman Island or locally known as the Bight, which is home to the beautiful Indians, a cluster of protruding rocks with some of the best snorkeling in the world.  There is a floating bar nearby and a stunning beach restaurant called Pirates where you can sit in deck chairs in the calm water or sit in the bar with mist swirling around keeping you cool.

Next stop Peter Island is the destination today. A private Island, we anchor in Little Harbor over a reef, which is convenient for snorkeling. A great place for skiing and sitting on the aft deck watching the rays and other fish. There is a good short hike up to an abandoned house at the top of the hill.
From here we can also shoot over to the famous wreck of the Rhone, a famous wreck of a steam ship from the 1800’s. This is lying in water ranging from 20ft to 80ft. Which means you can scuba dive here or snorkel, either way something special to see. There is also an exclusive resort here, which is great to explore.

Dinner on your last night is always special here with the lights of Tortola across the bay.
 
Last day - it went by so fast!


A lazy day is the order of the day on your last day. Breakfast is a sumptuous affair on the aft deck, and a nice long swim whilst re-living the weeks experiences.
The trip to Tortola is a quick one so we leave as late as possible to maximize your last day.

Some of the best diving in the world is here in the British Virgin Islands, including the Wreck of the RMS Rhone, rated as one of the top ten wreck dives in the world. Mention that you will be diving before you book your charter so that either the crew can organize "rendezvous" dives, where the dive boat will meet your yacht at anchor and pick up those wishing to dive, a perfect solution if only some of the guests want to dive. There are numerous good dive sites around the islands, which the captain will discuss with you.  If you are not a diver do not be disheartened as the snorkeling in the BVI is fantastic and you will see as much as the divers in the group.
