The British Virgin Islands are the best cruising grounds in the world.  And no wonder!  The water is a beautiful turquoise blue, warm winds blow consistently form the east and white beaches invite you to run barefoot through the sand.

You’ll start your incredible vacations in Road Town, Tortola.    There are two common ways to get to Road Town.  You can fly to St Thomas and take a ferry to Road Town.  You can also fly to Beef Island on Tortola by changing planes in San Juan.  If you fly to Beef Island, then take a taxi from the airport to your hotel.

Look to arrive Saturday and stay the night at one of the great local hotels.  On Sunday morning, get breakfast at the Village Cay Marina and board Arabella’s tender.  Arabella’s is too deep to come all the way in to the marina so she sits at anchor outside the harbor waiting for your arrival.  Our crew will deliver you and your bags to Arabella between 8 and 10 a.m.   Once on-board the yacht, you will meet the captain and crew, be shown to your cabin and then have an opportunity to stow your bags.  Then it is time to hoist the anchor and set sail.

If conditions are good, we will sail up to the Baths where we will anchor and you can jump in the water, snorkel or walk through the incredible boulders ashore.  In the late afternoon, we will sail downwind to Marina Cay.  There is a great bar on this small island which affords a perfect view of the setting sun.  Also walk to the top of the island and look out over Sir Francis Drake Channel.  Guests wishing to find some late night entertainment can see what is happening at the Last Resort or Loose Mongoose over in Trellis Bay.

From there we will then sail to The North Sound, Bitter End Yacht Club, Cooper & Peter Island, Jost Van Dyck, Sopers Hole & Norman Island making for the best vacation you’ve ever had!

If you have never been to the British Virgin Islands, you are missing the best part of the Caribbean.  If you have already been, then you probably can’t wait to go back!
