Read the full Caribbean Charter Guide.
A 7-day private yacht charter itinerary visiting the BVI.
After completing boat and chart briefings, make sure you have everything on board you need for your cruise. Depart the dock and after a short run across the 'Sir Francis Drake Channel' arrive at The Bight, Norman Island, rumored to be the site of Robert Louis Stevenson's famous novel, "Treasure Island".
There's time for a swim or snorkel at the Indians before watching a spectacular Caribbean sunset whilst enjoying a sundowner or two. Visit either the Billy Bones restaurant ashore, or the floating bar/restaurant the William Thornton III, each serving great food and offering the utmost in casual dining...
After breakfast, take your dinghy over (or the yacht) to The Caves. Pick up a National Park buoy and enjoy the wonders of the coral reef and its colourful inhabitants (don't forget to look for treasure!). Sail to Cooper Island and arrive early enough to pick up an overnight mooring buoy (no anchoring here). Time for more snorkeling off Cistern Point, or while away the afternoon lounging on the beach. Visit the Beach Bar and sample their liquid refreshment!
A gentle motor up to The Baths and pick up a buoy plan to spend the morning here and have lunch. Dinghy ashore and explore the magnificent boulders and rock pools created by Mother Nature millions of years ago. This has got to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. After lunch, sail to Marina Cay or Trellis Bay to spend the night there are many places to go ashore or plan to BBQ on board your yacht. The Last Resort and Loose Mongoose are strongly recommended and have been thoroughly checked out by us at Virgin Traders!!
Off to North Sound, Virgin Gorda (great snorkeling at the Dogs or Mountain Point en route) the hard part being which anchorage to choose for your overnight stay. For quiet and tranquility choose Drake's Anchorage go ashore in the evening and walk over the hill to watch the sunset from Honeymoon Beach. If you want entertainment, Bitter End Yacht Club offers music most nights here you can re-provision your boat, visit the shops, rent a Hobie Cat, learn to windsurf , look at the sharks in their tank there is lots to do. Leverick Bay is a Pusser's Resort and has a great store. Biras Creek is for those seeking elegance and first-class service the resort has one of the best restaurants and wine cellars in the BVI (there is a dress code after 7pm).
We at Virgin Traders know the Virgin Islands better than most and will let you into some of its secrets. Spend the morning exploring by dinghy there are many beautiful, deserted beaches and Eustatia Reef is a wonderful snorkeling site, or set sail for Monkey Point on Guana Island in time for lunch and some snorkeling. Cruise down the rugged and unspoilt North shore of Tortola and overnight in either Little Harbour or Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke. Good place to sample the local lobster!
Motor over to Sandy Cay the perfect desert island! Snorkel, swim and beachcombe then enjoy lunch before you sail to Cane Garden Bay for your overnight stop. Enjoy a great BBQ chicken and ribs dinner at Quito's and then dance to Quito and The Edge 'till the early hours! Quito is a ‘must’ if great music is your desire.
Start thinking about home again (but not too much!). After playing on the beach at Cane Garden Bay, set course for Soper's Hole, West End or enjoy a longer run to Little Harbour, Peter Island. As you watch the sunset, promise yourself you will be back to visit the many other wonderful places in the BVI that you didn't get to see this time
Time for one more swim then back to Nanny Cay Marina and Virgin Traders, making sure you have enough time to complete the check-in procedure at our dock. Your flights will be reconfirmed, your taxi booked and soon you'll be on your way home, already planning your return!
