The Virgin Islands are a magical Caribbean archipelago of more than forty islands and cays. They seem to have been created expressly for the pleasures of yachting and water sports. Located about 60 miles east of Puerto Rico; volcanic in origin, the British Virgin Islands feature rugged mountain peaks rising from the blue Caribbean Sea with unusual names such as Great Dog, Fallen Jerusalem, Prickly Pear and Pelican Island.

The islands, many of them uninhabited and attainable only by yacht, offer solitude and a simplicity of living unknown to most people.

 
 
 
 

The Caribbean islands peculiar names were first given by Columbus in 1493. He named the scattered islands as a group in honor of St. Ursula and her 11,000 virgins who, according to history were murdered by the pagan Huns in the 13th century.

7 Day "SAMPLE" Itinerary for the British Virgin Islands

Natures Little Secrets

DAY 1.
Arrive by air at Beef Island Tortola British Virgin Islands where your motor yacht captain is waiting for you in his white uniform. Within 10 minutes of meeting your captain you can be onboard your yacht enjoying refreshing tropical beverages. All motor yacht charters begin at 12 noon and you have normally arrived at 1 pm so a light lunch is prepared for your group while you settle into your new luxury motor yacht.

Once you are settled your Captain cruises slowly to your first tropical island for the night "Marina Cay" with its white sandy beaches, coconut palms, a restaurant right on the water and its own coral reef where snorkeling is awesome, then relax on board your all inclusive motor yacht and enjoy your first "happy hour" at sun set. Pinch yourself, you have arrived!

 

DAY 2
Start your morning on your all inclusive power boat with a
cruise that will take you to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. These spectacular rock formations below and above water can be explored by land or sea and snorkeling is a must. We anchor just short of the beach and prepare lunch while you go ashore and explore these famous BATHS. Do the walk through to "DEVIL'S BAY," take your camera, swim suit and flip-flops. Then a scenic cruise along the west side of Virgin Gorda, one of the most beautiful of the Virgin Islands, to the the Bitter End Yacht Club. After dinner dance the night away.

DAY 3
Spend the morning enjoying the North Sound onboard all inclusive motor yacht Emerald Seas - truly one of the most outstanding natural harbors in the Caribbean. Enjoy good windsurfing, snorkeling, hiking and shopping here. Visit the four exclusive resorts and take on some shore duty. Get your captain to show you where the four 16th century cannons are in 10 feet of crystal clear water, take your camera for underwater shots. Or, cruise to Anegada, the sunken land nestling within a horseshoe reef, the third largest barrier reef in the world. For the first half of this 2/3-hour cruise there is no land visible, and then the palm trees appear on the horizon warning of your imminent arrival. After lunch absorb the atmosphere of the anchorage at Pomato Point. Informality and relaxation are the key elements of Anegada. Deserted beaches, fringing reefs and the unique flora and forna of the salt ponds, home to the 21 pink flamingos, await your exploration. Lobster dinner at the Pomato beach resort with Wilfred is a must. We have seen the famous "green flash" five times at this location. The green flash is when the weather is perfect and the yellow sun sets at the horizon, the color (yellow) of the sun changes to green from the blue of the Caribbean Sea. Watch carefully just before she sets. click here to request motor yacht rate information

As darkness falls, with cocktail in hand, you see from the cockpit of the boat the driftwood fires on the beach grilling your lobster. The open-air restaurant in and around the beach promises a dining experience only Anegada can offer. Wilfred's Pomato point restaurant simply cannot be manufactured anywhere else in the world. This is why you come to paradise, to view nature at her best 100 years ago.

DAY 4
A leisurely downwind cruise to Jost Van Dyke onboard all inclusive motor aycht offers ample opportunity for fishing on the way. Sandy Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take your pick. For the over night stop, White Bay is secluded and quiet with only the Soggy Dollar Bar ashore or Great Harbor is ideal for those who would like to visit the famous Foxy's Tamarind Bar. Sample his Sly fox or Dread fox both made from Foxy's firewater rum and listen to his calypso songs. Beware you will possibly be in one of his Caribbean songs! Pick your picture perfect evening stop.

DAY 5
After breakfast explore Sandy Cay the uninhabited tropical island the view from above the coconut palms is magnificent. After an early lunch cruise to Norman Island (Treasure Island) about 2 and a half hours cruise. Snorkel at the caves and be amazed at how many fish there are in the crystal clear waters. The evening is spent in the Bight, with a visit to The William Thornton for an after dinner party - a wild floating bar where everybody lets their hair down and tells their sea-faring tales of the day.............and how fast did you cruise? But it is the pirates 3 caves that are the vivid picture you remember. Beware if you did not plan for 7 nights you would not get to see all these locations.

DAY 6
After breakfast you can hike to the top of Spy Glass hill, a known lookout point for the pirates be sure to take your camera. Dive or snorkel the Indians or Rainbow Canyon and swim with the sea turtles. After lunch you head straight for Cooper Island and the Cooper Island beach bar. Relax for happy hour dripping from your snorkel round the boat. After dinner relax on deck and count the shooting stars, making a wish on each one you see.

DAY 7
After breakfast snorkel at the pinnacle at Cooper Island, this is a lovely snorkel, as is the point of the western tip of Cooper Island. Before lunch cruise to Cam Bay at Great Camino, this is a wonderful lunchtime stop at a little bay where you are all by yourself. Cam Bay also has it's own little barrier reef so enjoy a snorkel there before motoring round to Trellis Bay in preparation for the next days flight home. Tears of disappointment run down your face for not booking another 4 days in paradise. At this time it is impossible not to have made best friends with captain and his trusty crew.

DAY 8
At Trellis Bay your last snorkel before your flight home. Paradise remembers you just as you remember her. Thank you for enjoying the classy British Virgin Islands.
