British Virgin Islands Cabin Charter

Nature's Little Secrets

All you need to know about these amazing British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean Sea

The British Virgin Islands, or BVI for short, are some of the most exclusive and least developed islands of the Caribbean, but this only adds to their appeal. They are made up of more than 60 islands and islets at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles, which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Rich in pirate folklore and made famous by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, the BVI offer some of the best sailing to be had anywhere on the planet. The smaller islands, many perfect for daytime snorkeling trips and overnight stays, add to the mix of tropical delights, where you can be as relaxed or as active as you like.

Marinas & Attractions

Crystal clear waters, picture-perfect beaches, scenic anchorages and well-equipped marinas make the British Virgin Islands an ideal sailing destination for every sailor. Easy island hops, consistent trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and numerous safe anchorages and mooring fields make this a sailors’ dream vacation.

The resorts, villas, restaurants and other tourist attractions on this paradisiacal tax haven are known to emphasize extra luxury over sprawling expansion, and they attract travelers with deep pockets and a love for sailing and seclusion.

Tortola and Virgin Gorda

In Tortola, the largest island of the BVI chain, there’s a variety of Caribbean vacation activities to indulge in. Experience the beauty of Tortola – swim or stroll the white-sand beaches, explore ancient ruins or our delectable local cuisine, or drop anchor and rock with the rhythm of the azure ocean.

A brief sail away, sleepy Jost Van Dyke offers delicious Caribbean food and drink. On Virgin Gorda, you’ll find The Baths, perhaps the most picturesque shore in the British Virgin Islands. For supreme seclusion, try Anegada; its slow pace, flat terrain and sparkling sand lies almost overlooked in the Caribbean Sea.

Cabin Charters

Tranquil turquoise waters lap softly against the hull of your yacht while giant swaths of tropical fish dart just below the surface.

Set sail on a BVI yacht charter from our partners’ base at Hodges Creek Marina, centrally located on Tortola. After slipping away from the dock, you will be perfectly positioned in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the gateway to Paradise.

Everywhere are white-sand beaches fringed with towering palm trees and picturesque ramshackle beach bars. Other islands remain uninhabited and are just waiting to be explored.

You will be pampered by our partners’ crews and discover the unspoiled beauties of these fantastic islands. The itineraries include carefully selected cruises to show you the most excellent locations and give you a beautiful round trip of the regions.

Onboard you have your private double cabin with an en-suite bathroom. Your cook will prepare for you exquisite recipes with fresh local products, especially tropical fruits, vegetables and fish.
