Ideal for Winter Season
Your 7 day adventure in the beautiful British Virgin Islands begins when you arrive at Soper’s Hole on the island of Tortola. One of the most ideal places to begin a luxury charter yacht tour of the archipelago, Soper’s Hole has all the amenities you need to get your vacation off to a smooth and exciting start. After meeting up with your chosen vessel, and your crew for the week, climb back ashore for an authentic Caribbean supper and a glass of locally produced rum to mark the occasion. Watch the sunset go down and get ready for your first night in paradise.
- Day 1
Norman Island is the first stop on your tour of the Virgin Islands
This particular island is a great adventure for literary fans, as this is the island which Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel Treasure Island is based on.
Although there is a distinctive lack of pirates, there are some charms on this island which are apt for the theme of the famous book. The main one being Willy T, a floating bar in the form of a replica pirate ship that remains anchored in the bay, providing the most unusual place to have a drink. An absolute must-visit, even if you aren’t a bookworm.
Norman Island will also give you your first diving opportunity of your holiday, as your crew anchor down close to a dive site known as The Caves. Exactly as the name describes, this dive site features some caves which are home to some beautiful species of marine life, including some small critters. A second dive site, The Indians, is also worth a look if you have enough time.
Your evening will then be spent in The Bight, a calm anchorage site, where you can either dine on board your vessel or enjoy another pirate-themed location, the Pirates Beach Bar.
- Day 2
Feel sugar sands between your toes and relax
After leaving Norman Island your dedicated crew will charter through the early hours of the morning so you wake up to see the stunning Peter Island.
Acclaimed to have one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, your morning can be spent trying to prove this fact. Relax on provided loungers, or enjoy the warm sand and watch the world go by over a couple of rum punches. Take a stroll to look for some shells or have a swim before indulging in a light lunch on your luxury charter yacht.
Next on your list is to see Dead Man’s Bay. Another pirate-tainted location, this place was named after the event of finding drowned pirates on the beach. It is said that these pirates made the swim from the nearby Dead Chest Island. If you don’t fancy spending more time resting on the beach, the time may arrive for you to open up the storage and get out the toys. Water sports are popular around the Caribbean so join in the fun and get your adrenaline pumping.
Finish your day on Peter Island by filling up on some barbeque favourites like sticky ribs and burgers at the Dead Man’s restaurant and bar.
- Day 3
Sun-kissed sands and sunken wrecks await
Making the short journey to your next port of call, Cooper Island offers outstanding beauty and diving opportunities for your third day in paradise.
Very much like your previous day on Peter Island, a lot of your day on Cooper Island can be spent lounging in the peace and serenity of the almost abandoned beaches. Rest your eyes under a palm tree and listen to the soothing sound of the sea while sipping on a rum cocktail for a couple of hours as you prepare for an afternoon under the sea.
Snorkelling and diving are popular for visitors to Cooper Island as there are protected reefs below the water’s surface. Cistern Point is a great place to dive as you can see many varieties of fish, many of which may be youngsters. Keep your eyes peeled on small nooks and crannies to see some small critters.
One more dive site to visit before the day is through is over at the nearby Salt Island. If you’ve never experienced a wreck dive you are in for a treat. The Wreck Of The Rhone is a dive site which continually attracts divers visiting the Virgin Islands. Sunk in 1867, the RMS Rhone was a Royal Mail vessel from the UK which met its fate during a hurricane, and has provided a home to all manner of beautiful and intriguing marine fauna ever since.

The island paradise that has it all
One of the true gems of the Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda is a natural beauty.
Perhaps the biggest atttraction of Virgin Gorda are The Baths. Natural whirpools encased in rocks of a volcanic nature, these oversized rock pools take on the motions of a whirpool bath. The salt water spa-like treatment beckons to you as an ideal cool off from the warm Caribbean sun. Spend as much time as you like here before drying off on one of the sublime white sandy beaches.
The North Sound is the second main port of call on Virgin Gorda. Here you will find a high quality, exclusive resort which has everything you could want from a stop off point in the Caribbean. The Bitter End is a hotspot for luxury charter yacht enthusiasts so be assured there will be plenty of luxury treats in store for you here. Have a delicious lunch and spend some time burning off pent up energy with the sports facilities.
If your purse strings are itching for an outing, a trip to Leverick Bay can also be arranged. Built up with tourists in mind, there are many shops, restaurants and bars here to keep you entertained. Even when the sun goes down the fun doesn’t end as Leverick Bay is known for having an exciting nightlife. Dance till you drop or work your way through pages of cocktails and complete your day here with a feast of a beach barbeque.
- Day 6
Barefoot bliss and enchanting underwater worlds
A day for recuperating from Leverick Bay comes in the form of the outstanding island of Anegada.
Virtually untouched, this island is only small but it is home to a lush green carpet of foliage and beautifully pink flamingos. Take a stroll through the indigenous flora and fauna while keeping your eyes peeled for exotic wildlife. Take a break in the shade with a light lunch before heading back towards the coastline to top up your tan.
Snorkelling is a must at Anegada as the underwater world is just as untouched as the island itself. Snorkel around your luxury charter yacht or venture a little deeper with your diving gear to see the beautiful corals and vibrant sealife. Water sports can also come into play here. The vast expanse of water allows you to bring out all of your toys so have some fun while exploring every angle of this beautiful island.
- Day 7
Jost Van Dyke
Party vibes Caribbean style
On your last full day in the British Virgin Islands, Jost Van Dyke offers the best of both of what this archipelago has to offer.
Dotted with restaurants, boutiques and small family run businesses, Jost Van Dyke offers true Caribbean tourism with delicious menus and hand made handicrafts. Scour the stores for unique pieces to take home and try local delicacies as you make your way to the beach for your final stretch of white sand time. Visit Foxy's Bar in the south for serious Caribbean vibes. Practically an institution, this laid-back beach bar is the place to see and be seen, especially at the weekends when a DJ works his magic for its patrons to dance to as the sun sets in a tangerine blaze over the horizon.
If you're after something a little quieter, cruise up to the southeast corner of Jost Van Dyke and make Bubbly Pool, a whirlpool similar to The Baths on Virgin Gorda, your last port of call of the day. Lounge on the decking over a candlelit supper and watch the final sunset of your week long adventure in the Virgin Islands.
- Day 8
Back to where it all began
The time has come to bid farewell to your luxury charter yacht holiday.
Anchoring down in the delightful harbour at Soper’s Hole, disembark the yacht to enjoy a little shopping time before saying your goodbyes, safe in the knowledge that these treasured memories are sure to linger long in the mind.
