BVI Destination Page w/template

Visiting the US and British Virgin Islands means direct flights from a number of major US airport hubs and easy private jetport options.

The Virgin Islands has the largest number of charter yachts to choose from in both size and style. Inclusive pricing and the best values compared to any other location make the VIs the most popular charter destination.

The 35 mile island chain of US and British Virgin Islands has options — from busy harbors to quiet out of the way spots but always with clear blue Caribbean seas.

Elysium

This fabulous Privilege yacht offers a multitude of lounging areas topside, aft deck and on the fore-deck which has an optional shade awning when needed. The master stateroom offers a king size berth with private head and stall shower. There are two VIP cabins with king berths, private ensuite heads and separate stall showers as well as a forward cabin with a twin berth, private ensuite head and wet shower. The twin cabin is accessible from the deck via a private entry and is perfect for a teen or single adult.

She has also been equipped with a full range of leisure equipment for the use of the guests. This is all set off at night by her spectacular underwater lighting. Her crew have a wealth of experience within the charter industry supported by formal qualifications.

The Perfect Surrounding

Begin your charter in St. Thomas with a brief stop in the shopping alleys of Charlotte Amalie or the megayacht marina Yacht Haven Grande (YHG). Set sail for nearby Christmas Cove, have homemade pizza from the Pizza Pi boat, or sail straight for St. John with 60% National Park and 20% unique laid-back artist’s enclave and the rest is all fun!

Tropical Paradise Found!

Clear US Customs and Immigration and head over to the BVI at West End, Tortola or onto Jost Van Dyke. Jost is a must with White Bay, home to the Soggy Dollar Bar (because you must swim ashore) or the famous Foxy’s in Great Habour.

Leave your watch and phone in your cabin for your swim ashore only to realize three days later you never even thought to pull them out again! Chartering a BVI yacht gives you the freedom to forget the stresses of modern life.

Unbridled

There are luxury yachts, then there is Unbridled. This 116ft yacht epitomizes luxury and comfort, with massive staterooms, a contemporary interior, a grand main salon and an extensive media center controlled by iPads. There is always something to do aboard Unbridled, whether it be relaxing in the jacuzzi, making use of its extensive array of water toys or taking out the 26 foot Chris Craft tender boat for a cruise.

Bagheera

Bagheera is a big spacious beauty of a cat. 4 queen cabins make this a perfect fit for either a group of 8 adults or a family. The crew of 3 believe in having fun and in the motto “he who has the most toys” wins. It is a registered fishing vessel but also has a whole host of other equipment for a fun-filled charter.

Ultra is stocked with fishing and snorkeling gear as well as plenty of water toys to keep you entertained as Vince and Linda show you private, out of the ways areas around the BVI.

Meet your crew at American Yacht Harbor where you’ll embark on the adventure of a lifetime. You’ll be taken aboard your yacht, shown around and settled in with a Caribbean cocktail. Take some time to get acquainted with the crew and go over your expectations for the trip. Then sail across Pilsbury Sound to the second largest of the USVIs – St. John. Take your pick of the gorgeous beaches ringing the north shore – all of which are part of the island’s National Park System and remain undeveloped and pristine. Try Trunk Bay or Cinnamon Bay for the snorkeling then move over to Francis Bay for the night.

Sail further up the coast to Leinster Bay and take a step back in time at the Annaberg Plantation where you can tour the ruins of the old sugar mill. Then take a hike up the Reef Bay Trail to check out the petroglyphs or spend the rest of the day livin’ Caribbean style – on the beach with a cocktail.

Say goodbye to the good ol’ US of A and sail to the West End of Tortola where you’ll clear British customs. This is the home of the world famous Pusser’s Rum so be sure to try a sample as you check out the beautiful marina surrounded by prettily painted wooden houses. With a bit of Pusser’s in you, you’re ready to live the pirate lifestyle so head over to Norman Island – the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Anchor up at Cayes Caves and spend the afternoon searching for Blackbeard’s treasure. Then sail around the corner to the Blight where you can have a quiet dinner on board, or continue the skullduggery on The William Thornton (Willy T’s) – an old Baltic Trader that’s been converted into a floating bar and restaurant.

Sail northward past Peter Island to Salt Island where you’ll find the famous wreck of the Rhone – a 310’ Royal Mail Ship sunk during a hurricane in 1867. This is a must-see stop for avid divers and snorkelers. If your yacht does not offer diving services, a rendezvous dive can be arranged.

After an early breakfast, sail up to Virgin Gourda. Stop off at the Baths, a true wonder of nature where boulders appear to have been thrown haphazardly around by some ancient Colossus forming caves, walkways and crystal clear pool perfect for snorkeling. Then get out before the crowds arrive and sail to North Sound, the perfect place to perfect high-speed watersports such as Windsurfing or wakeboarding or just lounging on the beach. Pass the evening sipping Pina Coladas at the Bitter End resort.

Settle in for a leisurely sail up to Anegada, a beautiful coral island far from the rigors of modern society. Enjoy a lazy day swimming, snorkeling, or suntanning.

Head back towards Tortola passing the private island of British tycoon Richard Branson – Necker Island. Spend the day moored at Lee Bay on Great Camano Island. Hang out on the beach or spend some time exploring the local flora And fauna by hiking across the isthmus to Camp Bay. Spend the night here, or, if you’re craving some civilization, sail on to Road Town, Tortola for dinner ashore. Check out the Spectacular views at Sky World located atop the island’s highest peak. Then head down to the Last Resort where you’ll be entertained by the joke-telling, piano-playing owner, Tony Snell.

No trip to the Virgin Islands is complete without a stop at Jost Van Dyke. Sail to White Bay and swim ashore to the Soggy Dollar Bar to trade in your wet duckets for a Painkiller or two. Then continue around to Great Harbour, home of the legendary Foxy’s. Most days Foxy himself is on hand playing Calypso songs detailing life on the Islands. If you’ve got the energy, continue on to Little Harbour where you’ll find the nightlife in full swing at Sidney’s and Harris’s Place.

Have a leisurely breakfast and shake away the cobwebs from the night before then sail back to Cruz Bay to clear U.S. customs. Spend some time in the quaint, artsy community of Cruz Bay or try your hand at putt-putt golf at nearby Pastory Gardens. Sail around to Christmas Cove off Great St. James where you’ll spend a quiet last night on board.

Snorkel the waters of Christmas Cove, have lunch and then it’s time for the inevitable – packing up and heading back to Red Hook and real life.
