ITINERARY:
 
TORTOLA
Tortola is the largest island of the BVI chain and easiest to commute to.  After setting foot on the island, reality will hit you, you've just landed in paradise.  
 
We always suggest you arrive a day or two early (if you can) to explore what the island has to offer and get accustomed to the slower pace of life.  During your downtime you can explore the ancient ruins, take some sun at the beach or just enjoy the local cuisine before joining the boat.  
 
 
MARINA CAY
Marina Cay has a colourful past and collection of owners, including Jose Cuervo Tequila who purchased the island, referring to it as 'Cuervo Nation'. The island was used to host promotional events.  
 
The island has a restaurant and bar, which as you'd expect offers the best rum.  The coral has amazing swimming before a well deserved rum.  Remember, drinking rum in the afternoon doesn't make you an alcoholic, it makes you a pirate.
 
 
VIRGIN GORDA / BATHS / DEVIL BAY
On our way to Virgin Gorda, we take a swim stop at 'The Baths' which are rock formations which are millions of years old, that have created a famous swim, snorkel and beach. 
 
We will then head up to Virgin Gorda, which has always been a hit with travellers and boaties, as the island offers peaceful coves, safe anchorages and luxury resorts.  We will take a mooring or anchor and explore the island for the best place to eat, drink, relax, swim, snorkel and whatever else you want to do, it's your holiday after all. 
 
 
THE DOGS / CANE GARDEN BAY
After leaving Virgin Gorda, we set off for the 'Dog Islands' where we'll drop anchor and you can snorkel and explore a large traditional coral reef and a plane wreck! 
 
We'll then make our way to Cane Garden Bay where you can enjoy the white sandy beach and relax with a drink, book or take up some water sports.  
 
Some amazing restaurants can also be found on the beach too.
 
SANDY CAY / JOST VAN DYKE
We'll stop at Sandy Cay for breakfast and a morning swim.  You can wander to the north side of the beach and the 'Bubbly Pool' where is the swell is right, creates a bubbling jacuzzi.
 
The island Jost Van Dyke was named after an early Dutch settler and former pirate, we are in old Pirate Land after all.  So we will take a mooring and explore the bays and the local legendary bars, Foxy's Bar and The Soggy Dollar Bar that got it's name from people swimming to shore for a drink and pulling out soggy dollar bills from their swimmers.
 
 
NORMAN ISLAND
We will then head to Norman Island, which was named after a pirate who brought the island during the early 18th century. Normal Island or 'Treasure Island' is known for a long history of pirate booty being stowed on the island and legends of treasure being discovered here.  
 
The island offers caves for amazing snorkelling, hidden bays and wrecks that may still have unclaimed treasure!  
 
We will stay in a protected bay for the night and can check out the famous 'Willy T's' floating restaurant and bar or you can opt for a more relaxed time at the beach bar.
 
PETER ISLAND 
After leaving the bay, we'll go straight over to 'The Indians' for breakfast and you can enjoy an amazing rock formation and swimming spot. 
 
After our relaxing stop we will head to Peter Island where we will bay-hop, before settling in for the evening.  Walk around the island, explore the highest peak for stunning photos and remember to pinch yourself as you walk down the beach, this is the stuff dreams are made of!
 
 
SALT ISLAND / COOPER ISLAND
Our first stop is at Salt Island, where beneath us you'll see the 'Wreck of the Rhone' which was wrecked in 1867.
 
Finally, we head for Cooper Island, which just like the rest of the trip is paradise.  You can swim down to Cistern Point, where you can snorkel and are likely to find Turtles, Octopus and other exotic sea creatures on a shallow dive.  
 
After a day of sun, swimming and relaxing you can have a final sunset cocktail with your feet in the sand and enjoy your last night on board, before we make the short trip back to base in the morning.
