Day 1 - Tortola
Set Sail!Cruising Day 1
Truly the sailing Capital of the Caribbean! You can fly into Beef Island on Tortola or the more popular St Thomas Airport and hop aboard the Charlotte Amalie ferry for a scenic ride over to Tortola. Your catamaran "home" will be Gardens Marina, just a taxi ride away from the ferry dock. For early arrivals, take a stroll to Nanny Cay Marina, where you can relax on the beach or sample the local cuisine at a seaside restaurant. Upon boarding, you'll enjoy cocktails while watching your first Caribbean sunset followed by a delicious dinner prepared by the yacht's chef.
The Caves on Norman Island, a short sail across the sheltered Sir Frances Drake Channel, brings you to your first experience of the beauty and splendor of the BVI, both above and below the surface. Snorkeling in what seems like an aquarium teaming with thousands of the most colorful fish. Your crew will explain the history of these caves and the treasure troves that have been found! A five minute motor around the headland brings us into "The Bight" on Norman Island, home of the famous "William Thornton", a floating bar and restaurant known to many as the "Willy T".
Day 2 - Virgin Gorda
Freshly brewed coffee, a wonderful breakfast and a plunge off the back deck is the start to our sail along the coast of Peter Island, past Dead Chest Atoll and into Salt Island, all in protected, calm waters. Salt Island is the graveyard for the R.M.S Rhone which sunk off its Eastern point with all on board in 1896. This is one of the most famous wrecks in the world for scuba divers to explore. For those who are qualified, a Dive Master will accompany you for this unforgettable experience. For Non-divers, snorkel over the stern section or take a walk around the shoreline in search of buried treasure. Next we sail to The Baths at Virgin Gorda. Walk through the batholitic granite caves and formations to Devils Bay where your crew will meet you with a refreshing, packed cooler and your snorkel gear. We enjoy lunch back on the boat and then off we go for an hour's sail up the spectacular coast of Virgin Gorda and The Bitter End Yacht Club. Go ashore after dinner and take in a typical BVI evening with your favorite Rum Punch and Steel Drum Band.
Day 3 - Anegada
Today we hoist all the sails and run out our fishing lines for a two hour cruise to the flat coral-sand island of Anegada with its endless white beaches. Feel the "talcum powder" under your feet while you stroll along the deserted beach. Tonight is your first night dining ashore. The prolific lobster population of this Island ensures a lobster meal second to none. Choose your lobster and watch it sizzle on the beach BBQ in front of the Anegada Reef Hotel or select a meal from the specials of the evening.
Day 4 - Virgin Gorda
Another super sail back to Mountain Point on Virgin Gorda where we stop for lunch and fantastic snorkeling amongst the granite boulders. From here, we sail through the Dog Islands to Marina Cay, a private Island Resort off the East side of Tortola. Michael Bean will entertain you with Pirate songs with his guitar and harmonica during happy hour on the top of the island. Dinner on board and a good nights rest in this calm anchorage will prepare you for the exciting day ahead.
Day 5 - Tortola
After coffee, we move to Monkey Point on Guana Island for breakfast. A snorkel around the unusual coral outcrops will reveal some strange marine creatures not often encountered. Lunch is at a unique little Islet off the Island of Jost van Dyke. With a good coverage of shade and a few palm trees, walk around this Island in just five minutes and snorkel the surrounding coral reef. Its nearly happy hour time at the world famous Foxy's on Jost van Dyke. Pin up a garment of clothing with your name written on it in Foxy's bar to join the many hundreds from all over the world.
Day 6 - Tortola
White Bay, just around the corner from Foxy's, is a spectacular strip of white sand fringed with coconut palms. Put your dollars into you pocket and swim ashore to the Soggy Dollar Bar, where the original "Painkiller" cocktail was conceived. We spend a leisurely day here before returning to Tortola, checking in at the famous Soppers Hole. This is the last night where you will dine ashore and enjoy late evening entertainment.
Day 7 - Tortola
After breakfast, we take a short cruise around to our base to say farewell.
