Sample 7 Day Itinerary in the British Virgin Islands
Your captain will put together a provisional itinerary based on the type of activities you want to do. This is, of course, completely flexible depending on your wishes and the weather/sea conditions

There are many options, but below is a sample itinerary:

Day 1 Midday.
Step aboard your crewed yacht and enjoy a cold drink while your captain gives you a briefing about the yacht, its safety features and discusses the itinerary with you.

The crew will cast off for a spectacular sail across the Sir Frances Drake channel and head towards the famous pirate coves and Willy T at Norman Island where lunch will be served. After lunch, visit The Indians for a snorkel and then on to the Caves. Stunning coral and hundreds of beautiful fish will make this a spectacular experience.

Round off the day with Captain’s cocktails and hors-d’oeuvres followed by a gourmet dinner served under the stars.

Day 2
After a restful night, and perhaps an early morning dip, your chef will serve breakfast before you set sail for your next destination. A short sail to Deadman’s Bay on Peter Island and time for a hike ashore at this exclusive resort and then time for a spin on the wakeboard. After lunch it’s time to hoist the sails and head to the famous Wreck of the Rhone for a snorkel before heading off to your evening anchorage at Manchioneel Bay, Cooper Island.

Day 3

Today it’s off to the famous Baths on Virgin Gorda, one of the must see places in the BVI. Secluded beaches and giant boulders are what makes this stop so special. After lunch set sail again for your evening stop at North Sound, home of the Bitter End Yacht Club. Here you can go ashore for a walk, indulge in a little shopping or just relax on the yacht.

Day 3
Now you have your sea-legs it’s time to set sail to Anegada, watching out for dolphins and whales on the way. Anegada has miles of deserted, sandy beaches and offers great bone-fishing as well as being an ideal spot for windsurfing. After lunch take a taxi to Loblolly Bay for an unforgettable snorkelling experience.

If you’re only going to eat ashore once, make Anegada the island you choose. Take a taxi past the Pink Flamingoes to Cow Wreck Beach Bar for the most amazing atmosphere and delicious, freshly caught lobster.

Day 4
An early start and it’s off to the secluded anchorage of Cam Bay on Great Camanoe, with its abundance of turtles and conch. Take a whizz on the doughnut and then after lunch its just a short motor round the corner to Marina Cay. This is a tiny island with a Pusser’s store and beach bar which frequently has live music.

Day 5
Set sail for Sandy Cay, drop anchor and have a swim in the beautiful waters that surround this beautiful, sandy Island. After lunch sail off to Jost Van Dyke, anchor at White Bay, swim ashore and have a cocktail at the legendary Soggy Dollar. Or if you’re feeling energetic, take a hike to the top of the island. If you’re in the mood for entertainment, your crew will be happy to take you to the famous Foxy’s in Great Harbour where you will enjoy an evening of music and entertainment by the great man himself.

Day 6
Say good morning to the sea turtles, enjoy a hearty breakfast and then it’s off to Sopers Hole, West End, Tortola. Here you pick up a mooring ball, and your captain will take you ashore for some light retail therapy, or just to check out the quaint buildings at the marina.

After lunch you will enjoy an afternoon sail up the Sir Francis Drake Channel towards Little Harbour, Peter Island where your captain will crack open the toy cupboard and you can spend the afternoon trying out wakeboarding, tubing or any of the other toys the yacht has to offer.

Day 7
A relaxing morning (or maybe more skiing?) then sail to Salt Island and take a hike to the salt ponds.

Then it’s time for a dip andsome lunch before heading to your evening anchorage at Trellis Bay, home to several turtles. Take a walk ashore and be sure to visit Aragorn’s art studio.

Day 8
After an early morning swim and a hearty breakfast it’s sadly time to pack your bags and head back to Village Cay Marina (or if you prefer, your crew will take you for a sail before returning to Trellis Bay and taking you ashore by dinghy for the five minute walk to the aiport.

Then it’s time to fly over the islands and head home, feeling relaxed, envirgorated and with a huge smile on your face.
