Tortola Sample 7 Night Itinerary
Simply use this as a guideline. When you are on board, you can discuss each day with the crew. The only things that are somewhat fixed are where your yacht collects you and drops you!
Tortola to Tortola
On arrival to Tortola, a 5 minute walk from the airport takes you to the dock in Trellis Bay for the tender out to your yacht! Perhaps anchor & spend the night just off of nearby Scrub Island! Enjoy a relaxing first night on board and discuss your plans for the coming week. If you feel like a night out, there are a few island bars in the area to visit for a rum punch or two.
Set off to Virgin Gorda first thing & explore the famous Bath’s, a collection of giant boulders scattered along the seaside. This is a major tourist attraction in the BVI's so the earlier or later the better to avoid the crowds. Also visit Spanish Town & snorkel the ‘Wreck of the Rhone’. Indulge in the beautiful sunset & cruise to North Sound, home of Bitter End Restaurant!
Virgin Gorda Cont.
Continue to indulge in Virgin Gorda. Perhaps visiting Mosquito and Eustatia Islands, Eustatia Sound, Deep Bay and Oil Nut. All fabulous places your crew highly recommends.
Do you wish to experience an exhilarating sail? Weather permitting, rise early and set off to Anegada. This beautiful island offers spectacular snorkelling, in turquoise waters surrounded by an array of marine life. Take a tour of this unique paradise & keep an eye out for pink flamingos & famous Anegada lobster ashore in the night! It takes about 3 hours to get to Anegada from North Sound.
Jost Van Dyke
Head over to Jost Van Dyke via Guana Island, a nature reserve that is simply beautiful! Lunch, snorkel, enjoy watersports & in the afternoon cruise to the world famous island of Jost Van Dyke. Enjoy more beautiful beaches & quaint island nightlife. Jost Van Dyke is home of the World Famous Foxy’s & Soggy Dollar bar. If time permits & the swell is cooperating, ask your captain to make a stop at the ‘Bubbly Pool’! Nature’s natural spa!
Shall you do Norman Island? Enjoy some snorkelling & exploring the caves and maybe look for some buried Treasure! Since 1846 writers have alleged that Treasure is buried on Norman Island. The Indian’s which is close by is also another great snorkelling spot in the BVI’s. For a couple of drinks in the afternoon you might like to visit the world famous Willy T Floating Bar & The Bight Anchorage which is a well known spot in the BVI’s.
We recommend Peter Island for your last night. The island is home to the luxurious Peter Island resort. Anchor for the evening off of Dead Man’s Bay. A tranquil night with dinner under the stars!
This is your last day in the BVI's! Why not enjoy breakfast aboard your luxury yacht before setting sail back to Village Cay or Trellis Bay? This will be the perfect end to a lovely week but I am sure you will be back!
