Yacht Charters in Central Caribbean: Virgin Islands
A Virgin Islands yacht charter is not only an experience but also a voyage of discovery. The Virgin Islands are a group of small and mostly uninhabited islands in the Caribbean. The majority of the islands are of volcanic origin, which gives character to the terrain, and provides splendid waters for swimming, snorkeling, diving and sailing. A virgin island yacht charter is perfect for those who enjoy either laid back cruising or a more sophisticated itinerary compared to our other Caribbean yacht charter destinations.
St. Thomas to Caneel Bay
Embark from Yacht Haven Grand in St. Thomas, and enjoy a cool island welcome beverage as the yacht gets underway for St. John. The superyacht will be anchored at Leinster Bay, after a quick trip to Waterlemon Cay, which according to many, offers the best snorkeling on St John. Leinster Bay is situated within a national park and the fact that there are no lights ashore means the stars appear especially bright.
Your Virgin Islands yacht charter will then consist of a quick trip around the end of St. John, and into the waters of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to clear customs at Sopers Hole, Tortola. Soper's Hole is a charming harbor, and is said to have been the residence of Blackbeard when he was residing in the BVI. At Pusser's Landing, there are a number of boutiques, charming restaurants and great galleries to enjoy. In the afternoon take a short trip to Great Harbor on Jost Van Dyke Island to anchor for the night. A visit to Foxy's Bar is a must.
After a leisurely breakfast on board your virgin island yacht charter, head across to Norman Island and anchor in the Bight. The caves there are magical for snorkelling, with their schools of small fish. From Bight, it is only a short ride in the tender over to the Willy T, a 93' replica of a Nova Scotian trading schooner that serves as a floating pub for cocktails.
In the morning, cruise to the Peter Island Resort, the largest private island in the British Virgin Islands. Enjoy a sumptuous lunch followed by a rejuvenating spa experience. Spend the afternoon exploring the world famous Baths of Virgin Gorda, a spectacular series of exotic pools and grottoes formed from giant boulders. In the evening, enjoy an aperitif at the nearby Little Dix Resort, built by Rockefeller.
Head over for Salt Island on day 5 of your Virgin Islands yacht charter and snorkel at the famous shipwreck of the Rhone. The wreck of The Rhone is a famous dive site. Located off Salt Island, the R.M.S Rhone (Royal Mail Steamer) went down in 1867 in a hurricane. One of the first iron ships built, the Rhone still had the graceful lines of a sailing ship, while outfitted as a sail-steamer from the early days of these ships.
Saying goodbye to the BVIs, enjoy a beautiful cruise back up between the islands, to cross over to the USVI and anchor at Caneel Bay. This beautiful area is part of the Virgin Islands National Park, now leased to Caneel Bay Resort. The resort grounds were once home to a 17th century sugar factory. A short trip on the tender will bring you to the sugary sand of Honey Moon Beach, for a beach picnic, for your last evening of your virgin island yacht charter.
Day 7: Enjoy a scrumptious brunch on board before returning back home.
