British Virgin Islands Sailing Cruise

The Cruising Capital of the Caribbean!

Lagoon 620

The BVI is the sailing Capital of the Caribbean and her protected waters are an absolute dream to sail! We make it easy for you to reach this destination by starting from St. Martin. With convenient flights to Queen Juliana International Airport, one of the many direct flights will save you time and money! You will board your stunning catamaran from our base in Marigot, just a 7 minute taxi ride away from the airport.

The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are made up of more than 60 islands and islets at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles, which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada are the major islands of this storied archipelago. Rich in pirate folklore, and made famous by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, the BVI offer some of the best sailing to be had anywhere on the planet.

The smaller islands, many perfect for daytime snorkeling trips as well as overnight stays, add to the mix of tropical delights, where you can be as relaxed or as active as you like. Set sail on a BVI yacht charter from our base at Hodges Creek Marina, centrally located on Tortola.

After slipping away from the dock, you will be perfectly positioned in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the gateway to Paradise. We will transport you to a place where tranquil turquoise waters lap softly against the hull of your yacht while giant swaths of tropical fish dart just below the surface.

Everywhere are white-sand beaches fringed with towering palm trees and picturesque ramshackle beach bars. Other islands remain uninhabited and are just waiting to be explored. Crystal clear waters, picture-perfect beaches, scenic anchorages and well-equipped marinas make the British Virgin Islands an ideal sailing destination for every sailor.

Easy island hops, consistent trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and numerous safe anchorages and mooring fields make this a sailors’ dream vacation.

VIRGIN GORDA

When you wake up, the BVI will be in sight and you’ll arrive at Virgin Gorda. Breakfast and short sailing to a mythical place in the BVI: The Baths, in the very south of Virgin Gorda. The Baths is a must: a huge area of round and polished rocks planted in white sand, caves and natural pools creating an unreal and magnificent landscape. In Devil’s Bay, you will be able to visit the little souvenir shops. After lunch, departure to reach Norman Island in about two hours. Dinner and night on board at anchor in The Bight. For those who feel like pirates, welcome to the Willy-T, a renowned floating bar.

NORMAN ISLAND

Late afternoon, you’ll change scenery to discover the next Great Harbour bay, where we’ll moor for diner and night on board at the anchor. The guests who feel like it are welcome to meet at Foxy’s bar.

SANDY CAY

Departure at 8h00 for 20 minutes of sailing towards Sandy Cay, a small island fringed with coconut trees and surrounded by white sand, or, depending on the wind direction, to Sandy Split: a dream island that you will enjoy in the morning, swimming and beachcombing. After lunch, departure to Marina Cay, a tiny island east of Tortola. You’ll find there a shop offering a wide range of good quality souvenirs, branded “Pusser’s West Indies, British Virgin Island”. Dinner and night on board at anchor.

The arrival in Pomato Bay offers a idyllic scenery with its spectacular white sandy beach.

Depending on the meteorological conditions, we’ll have lunch at Necker Island or Prickly Island.

Tropical fish

Lunch on board, swimming and beachcombing before going back at the end of the day the the creole village of Grand Case. Grand-Case is a small town in the French side of St. Martin.
