The Best BVI Luxury Yacht Charter Destination in the Caribbean
The British Virgin Islands are hailed as the best sailing yacht destination in the Caribbean, and arguably the whole world. The consistent trade winds, year-round warm weather, and line of sight sailing make the islands ideal for your next BVI charter vacation. With dozens of unspoiled islands and cays, beautiful white sand beaches, bountiful marine life, and unique, relaxed island culture, make this the year you set sail in the British Virgin Islands.
Sample Itinerary for BVI Charter Guests
Sail to Norman Island for your first night aboard. Hook a mooring ball, lower the dinghy in the water, and begin the exploration of this hidden treasure of an island. Stop at The Caves for a spectacular snorkel then make your way over to Pirates Bight Restaurant, a family-oriented beach bar, for lunch and enjoy a frozen drink to cool you off. Next, head back to your charter boat and take advantage of all the water toys you have onboard your luxury yacht. Enjoy an evening of adventure and step aboard the infamous Willy T where you can enjoy a night of dancing, local island drinks, and tons of fun.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast on your private sailing charter and then get the day started right with a snorkel at The Indians – an amazing rock formation of corals and sponges that can be found on the ledges and steep walls that rise to the surface. Follow up your dive at The Indians with another incredible dive off The Wreck of the Rhone located just off Salt Island. After your underwater experience, tack back up the Sir Francis Drake Channel and head to Cooper Island. Remember to grab your overnight mooring ball as the balls are somewhat limited. Swim over to Cistern Point for more spectacular snorkeling or simply relax on the beach by the bar at the Cooper Island Beach Club while your luxurious yacht charter awaits your next adventure.
Get an early start and make your way over to The Baths and grab a National Parks Mooring buoy. Note that you can no longer take your dinghy onto the beach as it is roped off. You will have to swim into the beach area from the dingy line. Make sure to pack a dry bag to keep your camera and other items free from water. Plan to spend the whole day making your way through the tunnels, caves, and crystal-clear water pools through the maze of massive boulders. Make your way over to Devil’s Bay beach for a refreshing swim. Following that, hike up to the top of The Baths to savor a scenic lunch with the most amazing 360° views of the BVI. Hike back down to the beach and head back to your luxuriously appointed yacht. Release the morning buoy and navigate your way over to Leverick Bay for the night. Secure a mooring ball or make reservations for a space on the dock. This marina has it all – fresh water, ice, fuel, showers, laundry facilities, spa, shopping, Wi-Fi, and food aplenty.
Days 4 & 5
Experience an exhilarating sail to the low-lying coral island of Anegada. Keep an eye out for friendly dolphins and whales along your journey. Once you arrive at port, make your way to one of the amazing local restaurants and make reservations for a lobster dinner! Then, head off to one of the secluded beaches like Loblolly Bay or our favorite, Cow Wreck Beach. Spend an extra day here in Anegada and enjoy the beaches; rent a scooter, search for pink flamingos, grab your snorkel gear, or even try bonefishing, one of the most sought-after shallow water game fish in the world. This is also a great kiteboarding spot!
Enjoy a nice downwind sail toward Jost Van Dyke. This will most likely be your longest sail, so break it up with a late morning stop at Monkey Point on Guana Island. The snorkeling is amazing here with so many types of fish to view: Yellowtail snappers, grunts, jacks, turtles, and large tarpon. However, pelicans diving for their next meal remains the best show that Mother Nature has to offer. Enjoy a quick lunch and continue to Great Harbor on Jost Van Dyke, home to Foxy’s Tamarind Bar. After picking up an overnight mooring, make your way in to see Foxy’s, which is well known for live music and a great BBQ on the beach.
Enjoy a tasty breakfast aboard your boat, then, navigate your way by dingy over to the famous Soggy Dollar beach bar, in White Bay for a world-famous Painkiller. Enjoy the day at the beach and then head to Peter Island. Great Harbor at Peter Island is perfect for your last night as it is quiet, picturesque, and speaks volumes about a Caribbean charter experience. There is a small bar and restaurant on the shore called Oceans Seven offering guests delicious local delicacies.
After breakfast, you will have time to squeeze in one more snorkel adventure, surrounding yourself with fascinating high-spirited marine life in the crystal-clear waters of Great Harbor. This spectacular harbor is home to beautiful reefs and brilliantly colored tropical fish, which is the perfect way to end your trip before you set sail, returning to the best marina in Nanny Cay aboard your private yacht charter.
