Overnight and Day Sails in the Virgin Islands

Proposed Virgin Island (USVI) Sailing Itinerary:

These days we rarely take our classic sloop-style sailboat Jester over to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) (but the catamaran Zunzun travels there a lot on overnight Sailing Vacation Tours) however when we do, its always a wonderful and exhilarating experience Here are just some of our favorite spots and well worth you exploring - Have fun reading through...

Day 1: Cast off from Road Town, Tortola...

Your luxury yacht charter sets sail at around noon after you have unpacked and settled into your new environment. Deadman’s Bay on Peter Island is a short sail away where you can jump into the gorgeous waters of the Caribbean; swim ashore to the beautiful sandy beach on Peter Island, or dinghy across. After exploring Peter Island, sit back and enjoy a meal as you motor around the point to Little Harbor or isolated Great Harbor for the night.
