islands peculiar names were first given by Columbus in 1493. He
named the scattered islands as a group in honor of St. Ursula and
her 11,000 virgins who, according to history were murdered by the
pagan Huns in the 13th century.
Day "SAMPLE" Itinerary for the British Virgin Islands
Arrive by air at Beef Island Tortola British Virgin Islands where
your motor yacht captain is waiting for you in his white uniform.
Within 10 minutes of meeting your captain you can be onboard your
yacht enjoying refreshing tropical beverages. All motor yacht charters
begin at 12 noon and you have normally arrived at 1 pm so a light
lunch is prepared for your group while you settle into your new
luxury motor yacht.
you are settled your Captain cruises slowly to your first tropical
island for the night "Marina Cay" with its white sandy
beaches, coconut palms, a restaurant right on the water and its
own coral reef where snorkeling is awesome, then relax
on board your all inclusive motor yacht and enjoy your first "happy
hour" at sun set. Pinch yourself, you have arrived!
Start your morning on your all inclusive power boat with a cruise
that will take you to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. These spectacular
rock formations below and above water can be explored by land or
sea and snorkeling is a must. We anchor just short of the beach
and prepare lunch while you go ashore and explore these famous BATHS.
Do the walk through to "DEVIL'S BAY," take your camera,
swim suit and flip-flops. Then a scenic cruise along the west side
of Virgin Gorda, one of the most beautiful of the Virgin Islands,
to the the Bitter End Yacht Club. After dinner dance the night away.
Spend the morning enjoying the North Sound onboard all inclusive
motor yacht Emerald Seas - truly one of the most outstanding natural
harbors in the Caribbean. Enjoy good windsurfing, snorkeling, hiking
and shopping here. Visit the four exclusive resorts and take on
some shore duty. Get your captain to show you where the four 16th
century cannons are in 10 feet of crystal clear water, take your
camera for underwater shots. Or, cruise to Anegada, the sunken land
nestling within a horseshoe reef, the third largest barrier reef
in the world. For the first half of this 2/3-hour cruise there is
no land visible, and then the palm trees appear on the horizon warning
of your imminent arrival. After lunch absorb the atmosphere of the
anchorage at Pomato Point. Informality and relaxation are the key
elements of Anegada. Deserted beaches, fringing reefs and the unique
flora and forna of the salt ponds, home to the 21 pink flamingos,
await your exploration. Lobster dinner at the Pomato beach resort
with Wilfred is a must. We have seen the famous "green flash"
five times at this location. The green flash is when the weather
is perfect and the yellow sun sets at the horizon, the color (yellow)
of the sun changes to green from the blue of the Caribbean Sea.
Watch carefully just before she sets. click

falls, with cocktail in hand, you see from the cockpit of the boat
the driftwood fires on the beach grilling your lobster. The open-air
restaurant in and around the beach promises a dining experience
only Anegada can offer. Wilfred's Pomato point restaurant simply
cannot be manufactured anywhere else in the world. This is why you
come to paradise, to view nature at her best 100 years ago.
A leisurely downwind cruise to Jost Van Dyke onboard all inclusive
motor aycht offers ample opportunity for fishing on the way. Sandy
Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take
your pick. For the over night stop, White Bay is secluded and quiet
with only the Soggy Dollar Bar ashore or Great Harbor is ideal for
those who would like to visit the famous Foxy's Tamarind Bar. Sample
his Sly fox or Dread fox both made from Foxy's firewater rum and
listen to his calypso songs. Beware you will possibly be in one
of his Caribbean songs! Pick your picture perfect evening stop.
After breakfast explore Sandy Cay the uninhabited tropical island
the view from above the coconut palms is magnificent. After an early
lunch cruise to Norman Island (Treasure Island) about 2 and a half
hours cruise. Snorkel at the caves and be amazed at how many fish
there are in the crystal clear waters. The evening is spent in the
Bight, with a visit to The William Thornton for an after dinner
party - a wild floating bar where everybody lets their hair down
and tells their sea-faring tales of the day.............and how
fast did you cruise? But it is the pirates 3 caves that are the
vivid picture you remember. Beware if you did not plan for 7 nights
you would not get to see all these locations.
After breakfast you can hike to the top of Spy Glass hill, a known
lookout point for the pirates be sure to take your camera. Dive
or snorkel the Indians or Rainbow Canyon and swim with the sea turtles.
After lunch you head straight for Cooper Island and the Cooper Island
beach bar. Relax for happy hour dripping from your snorkel round
the boat. After dinner relax on deck and count the shooting stars,
making a wish on each one you see.
After breakfast snorkel at the pinnacle at Cooper Island, this is
a lovely snorkel, as is the point of the western tip of Cooper Island.
Before lunch cruise to Cam Bay at Great Camino, this is a wonderful
lunchtime stop at a little bay where you are all by yourself. Cam
Bay also has it's own little barrier reef so enjoy a snorkel there
before motoring round to Trellis Bay in preparation for the next
days flight home. Tears of disappointment run down your face for
not booking another 4 days in paradise. At this time it is impossible
not to have made best friends with captain and his trusty crew.
At Trellis Bay your last snorkel before your flight home. Paradise
remembers you just as you remember her. Thank you for enjoying the
classy British Virgin Islands.
