An excellent place to escape winter temperatures, the British Virgin Islands has a little bit of something for everyone! Explore tranquil clear waters and over 60 stunning islands when you book a vacation to this classic Caribbean destination.
Start your vacation in Tortola before heading to meet your captain and crew at lunchtime. Welcome to your new home for the next week! Enjoy taking a tour, cold cocktail in hand before setting sail for your first stop – The Bight at Norman Island. It’s only a short cruise but enjoy a fresh seafood lunch prepared by your private chef, soaking in the views! The famed Treasure Island offers fantastic snorkelling so don’t waste time jumping in and getting your feet wet!
Another short cruise will take you to Peter Island, which remains largely undeveloped but filled with plenty of beautiful spots for photo ops! Stretch your legs onshore, while your crew prepares a picnic lunch on the sand. Dinner will be on land at Deadman’s Bay tonight – named for the pirates that once washed ashore here!
This morning starts with a dive at Salt Island – dating back over 150 years, this wreck features an old Royal Mail ship that went down on its way from Southampton.
Another delicious meal will be served alfresco by your chef as you cruise to your next spot after lunch – Cooper Island. Back to the land of civilization! There is a small resort on the island here, as well as shopping, a bar and a restaurant if you’d like to enjoy a cocktail on the beach before heading back to a formal dinner onboard.
Today you’ll head toward Virgin Gorda for the next two days. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee prepared just the way you like it, as you catch up on some reading on the bow on the way. Stop on the way to explore the mangroves where your captain can get you up close and personal on the tender. Enjoy the Baths that are famous around here for the natural whirlpool baths. Ice cold champagne is served on the upper deck tonight as you catch the sunset before another fantastic dinner onboard.
Day two in Virgin Gorda, you’ll be treated to a tour around the North Sound with its collection of tiny islands. Fancy a little picnic lunch at one of them? No worries, your chef has already packed it and the crew is laying it out while you play in the sea! Today is the perfect day to take some of the toys out – tear around on jet skis, take a stand-up paddleboard to the little bays or just tan on the deck with plenty of cocktails and snacks to keep you busy!
As you start to wind back toward Tortola, you’ll stop at a number of little islands along the way. Island hop from Bitter End and Saba Rock to spend time throwing a football in the sand, snorkelling amongst the fish and enjoying a candlelit dinner in the sand tonight toasting another fantastic day at sea!
Your last full day onboard will showcase another couple of islands for you to enjoy! Moskito and Prickly Pear islands offer more opportunities to get your feet wet, play with the water toys. Moskito island has plenty of snorkelling opportunities and Richard Branson’s latest development on land so use this opportunity to relax with a drink at the bar before heading back to the yacht for your final evening. It’s time to get dressed up for a formal dinner celebrating your excellent stay onboard.
Enjoy one final dip in the sea, one last deep dive with the snorkel, before cruising back into Tortola…until next time!
