Day 1: Sails Up!
You will sail for 1 hour towards The Bight, Norman Island. Just around the corner from The Bight, you will find 'The Caves', the ideal place to sample your first BVI snorkel. Don't forget to bring your GoPro as you discover the abundance of marine life within The Caves! Spend the afternoon Paddle Boarding, listening to music and getting stuck into your favourite novel. Enjoy Captain Cocktails whilst taking in the mesmerising sunset over The Bight before tucking into your first gourmet BVI yacht charter experience. G'night!
Day 2: Snorkelling and Water Sports Galore
Having tested out your snorkelling skills the day before, your second day in the BVI sees you cruise to “The Indians”, a group of striking rocks which create the image of an exotic headdress. With plenty to see under the waves, you won’t want to take off your diving gear. However, with the five glorious beaches of Deadman’s Bay on Peter Island to see, your second day in the BVI only gets better. You’ve seen under the waves, but can you ride them? Waterskiing and windsurfing are just two of the watersports on offer around this idyllic setting before you settle down for the night at your final destination, enjoying the sunset over Cooper Island.
Day 3: Explore and Discover
The marine life you’ve seen on your dives so far have been building up to this, the Wreck of the Rhone. One of the most world famous diving sites, the impressive propeller area and surrounding sunken ship truly are a sight you won’t forget. From one magnificent place to another, your next stop is to see the BVI sun bouncing off the Baths, a rock formation created by molten lava. With some beautiful paths to explore the formation, why not wait until the evening to avoid the crowds, filling your day with some more exciting water sports? Having captured some great snaps of the Baths for your scrap book, its time to anchor down at the Bitter End Yacht Club for the night, one of the most stunning areas in the BVI.
Day 4: Virgin Gorda and Anegada Lobster
Your fourth day in the BVI will be one of your most luxurious, as your travels around Virgin Gorda will encounter some of the most breathtaking anchorages in the Caribbean. This is also a great place to get back out on the water for some tubing – filmed from the yacht this will provide some incredible memories to take home. Make sure you catch sight of Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island as you head for lunch before your cruise to Anegada. The white beaches of this coral island are a delightful setting for some sports, some relaxation or some sunbathing. As ever in the BVI, an awe-inspiring sunset awaits you.
Day 5: Dolphin Spotting
The pink flamingos of Anegada are a nice attraction after your morning sail through the crystal clear Caribbean waters. Perhaps the 2km stretch of white sand to be found at Loblolly bay will take your fancy, chatting with the locals and enjoying a drink at some quality beach bars. After the morning spent dolphin spotting, your relaxing cruise to Little Jost Van Dyke is the perfect opportunity to soak up some more of the endless BVI sun. Don’t be taken aback if you discover the abandoned bar ran by a scarecrow, this is an ideal place for your crew to prepare you a barbecue for a starlit dinner.
Day 6: Natural Spas, Coral Reefs and Cerulean Waters
The Bubbling Pools await you on your sixth day of luxury, a naturally occurring jacuzzi surrounded by rocks just waiting to be climbed on. After your spa treatment from Mother Nature, the rest of the day is a great opportunity to get the Go-Pro back on. Sandy Spit, the real life cartoon desert island, is home to the coral reefs and marine life that really make the BVI tick. Eventually, no matter how mesmerising it is, you’ll have to tear yourself away to one of the best restaurants in the area, Corsairs, with its vast assay of local fish and meats for your delectation. After a memorable dinner it’s time to make some unforgettable moments of your own at the world famous Foxy’s bar.
Day 7: The Best BVI Beach Bars
What’s a soggy dollar, we hear you say? Well, it’s just that. Dollars that have been dropped by swimmers, snorkelers and divers eager to swim ashore are popular treasure hunt items around White Bay. After your morning in the shallows, you can grab a drink and a bite to eat in Ivan’s Stress Free Bar, enjoying their unique display of shells. Day 6 really is all about the BVI bar discovery, as the Soggy Dollar Bar is utterly unmissable - perhaps the world's greatest beach bar and inventor of the Pain Killer. Ahead of your final sail tomorrow morning, it’s advised that you begin to make your way back towards Tortola. After all, who wouldn’t want to revisit some of the sights you’ve seen on your adventure?
Return Sail to Tortola...
Just because its your final day, it doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it. Fill your morning with a delicious breakfast and getting back out on the water with paddle boards, or perhaps getting under it with your snorkel and camera for that one final money shot of the reefs. After a short sail to Road Town, its time to pack up and head home from your real life paradise.
