Virgin Island Yacht Charter Itinerary   

A yacht charter in Caribbean will expose you to Sir Francis Drake Channel upon departure heading towards The British Virgin Islands.  Whether you chartered a Caribbean motor yacht, Caribbean sailing yacht or Caribbean catamaran you will experience easy cruising to all the islands, since the landmasses are close together.


DAY 1.


  A Caribbean yacht charter is the best way to explore Cooper Island, which attracts numerous boaters with a safe anchoring harbour and a palm-fringed white sand beach. Snorkeling sites are just in swimming distance with Cistern Point a favorite for those hoping to see a southern ray or possibly a sea turtle.  This is a great place to spend the night if you going to southern Virgin Gorda the next morning as it is only about an hour away.

DAY 2.   


Virgin Island sailing charter winds to The Baths, an area on the southern tip with giant boulders forming spectacular sea pools and grottoes. A favorite place to snorkel and to sail, it is now incorporated as a National Park, along with two exquisite white sand beaches, Devil's Bay and Spring Bay spanning either side of the boulders with a trail connecting both. Snorkel, explore the caves and rock formations as long as you like.  In the afternoon, sail north to reach Gorda Sound of Virgin Gorda, surrounded with safe anchorages and snorkeling. 

DAY  3.

 Sailing in the Caribbean towards Anegada, the “Third Largest Barrier Reef” in the world.  It is a very flat island and not visible until you are within several miles of it, by which time you are already over the reef that surrounds it. Loblolly Bay on the north side is great for snorkeling and swimming, one of the most beautiful, isolated beaches in the world. 

DAY 4.

   All Caribbean yacht charters travel to Cane Garden Bay/Jost Van Dyke. Cruise and go between Great and Little Camanoe to the back side of Tortola heading to Jost Van DykeWeigh anchor and take a short cruise up to beautiful Guana Island for spectacular snorkeling and superb beach at Monkey Point.  It’s a great spot to picnic.  Then take an afternoon sail west to either Cane Garden Bay on Tortola’s lush north shore, or to the islands of Jost Van Dyke and Little Jost Van Dyke.   Both locations have good anchorages, beautiful beaches, hiking, beach bars, and unique restaurants for your share of evening’s entertainment. 

DAY 5.

Virgin Island yacht charter sails to Norman Island, made famous by John Louis Stevenson's classic pirate tale Treasure Island, is best known for its geological formations known as "The Caves." A highly photographed snorkeling site, schools of colorful fish literally swim right along with you while exploring the three caves with interesting coral and mineral formations. In the large bay called the Bight, are moorings for boats and a unique floating restaurant, fashioned from an old schooner as well as a pirate-themed restaurant ashore.

DAY 6. 


Caribbean charter yacht goes to Peter Island; another island named after a Dutch privateer. The long, shallow reef at White Bay offers good snorkeling. There are small mouthed grunts, an occasional octopus (a small variety) and occasionally a tarpon. Great Harbor does have moorings and there is very good snorkeling on the middle shore.

DAY 7.  


Virgin Island boat charter sails towards Salt Island with its steep hills and contrasting low lying salt ponds is virtually uninhabited. Once home to a small settlement of BV Islanders who sifted through its salt ponds to extract the chunky sea salt, it is now more famous for the wreck of the Rhone, an 1800's British Mail Steamer, which lies sunken off its south western shore and is officially a marine park attracting divers from all over the world.
