The British Virgin Islands Itinerary
Set sail for Norman Island, the inspiration for Robert Lewis Stevenson's famous novel,
"Treasure Island ". Who knows, maybe you'll find some treasure of your own as you snorkel the Caves. From there, is just a short hop to the Bight and one of the most spectacular sunsets you may ever see.
After a scrumptious breakfast, a short sail takes you to the Indians for a delightful snorkel or scuba dive. Following a lunch stop at Peter Island , we head up to Sir Francis Drake Channel to Salt Island. Here you can dive or snorkel the Wreck of the Rhone , famous for its part in the movie, "The Deep", and acclaimed as the best wreck dive in the Caribbean.
The BVI's are perhaps best recognized for The Baths, a unique formation of large boulders glittering the beach along the southern tip of Virgin Gorda. You can explore the many caverns and grottos either by foot or by snorkel. In the afternoon, sail to The North Sound, the BVI's favorite playground. The protected water lends itself to every watersport imaginable.... windsurf, waterski, kayak, play volleyball on the beach.
Venture out into Eustatia Sound, where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. The water is crystal clear and teaming with tropical fish and reef life just waiting for you to explore. Rendezvous at the Bitter End for a smooth, rum punch and listen to the steel drum band.
Partake in an adventurous sail to Anegada...a flat, coral atoll completely surrounded by reef. Many ships have been lost off the reef, providing an underwater paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers alike. Anegada is surrounded by miles of the most glorious beaches, and renowned for the best, grilled lobsters in the Caribbean.
Haul up the spinnaker and sail for Jost Van Dyke...the beach bar capital of the islands. Anchor at Sandy Cay for lunch and kayak to shore and explore the island. Dive at Green Cay; and don't miss the entertainment at Foxy's or the Soggy Dollar Bar.
Enjoy the sunrise over the hills at Soper's Hole and take in an early, morning swim or snorkel before heading back to Tortola. Now that's the vacation of a lifetime!
