Ideal for Winter Season
Found off the coast of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands are an intriguing gem of the Caribbean. With the islands being watched over by the British, Americans and Spanish combined, there is a great amount of cultural interest here, as well as phenomenal levels of natural beauty. Many of the islands are uninhabited and packed with soft white sandy bays, crystalline waters and tremendous scenery that will lure you into a sense of relaxation from the moment you arrive.
- Day 1
Easily the most popular island in the US Virgin Islands, St Thomas has absolutely everything you could possibly want to get your luxury charter yacht experience off to a smooth start.
Embark on your yacht charter at the fully equipped Crown Bay Marina and enjoy a freshly prepared lunch onboard. This is the most ideal place to start any tour of the Virgin Islands with high-quality amenities and stunning views from the off. In the afternoon, guests have the opportunity to kick back and relax on the beach for a while or get straight onto the jet skis for an afternoon of adrenaline-pumping fun. The conditions here are perfect for pretty much any watersport you feel like indulging in.
After wearing yourself out enjoy the first night on board your private yacht rental as you dine alfresco under the shining Caribbean stars.
- Day 2
As the smallest in the group of US Virgin Islands, St John has a surprising amount of things to do in comparison to its size. Being within the borders of a national park, the natural landscape of the island is unspoiled and utterly beautiful.
Enjoy breakfast onboard and spend the morning soaking up the peaceful ambiance of the island by taking a walk through some of the clearly marked trails while keeping your eyes open for some of the native wildlife.
In the afternoon, guests can immerse themselves in the ultimate snorkeling experience. Just off the coast at Francis Bay, there is an interesting wreck dive of a sunken plane which is still largely recognizable. Attracting an abundance of colorful fish and magical marine life, this is an ideal dive for all levels of diving experience.
- Day 3
On day three of your charter vacation, you can head to the popular Norman Island which is famed for being the inspiration behind the classic novel Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.
The pirate theme remains an attraction of this island with the legendary floating bar. Converted from a ship and moored in the bay, Willy T’s is a bar and restaurant with a huge novelty factor that can’t be missed.
After a floating lunch, it’s time to rejoin the waters as your crew gets you as close as possible to the dive site known as The Caves. The name is exactly what you can expect to see, a group of caves. Located at Treasure Point, the three coves are immensely popular with diving enthusiasts and you can expect to see large numbers of marine specimens. Visit all three caves if you have time then dry off on the warm sandy beach before happy hour at Willy T’s.
- Day 4
Head towards Great Harbour at Peter Island in the early morning as anchorages can get pretty busy as many charters like to stop off here. Perhaps you could watch the sunrise or soak up the spectacular views from the sundeck on your luxury yacht charter.
Take your time on a paddle boat or fly around the bay on a jet ski before once again visiting the underwater scene. Your diving time at Peter Island shouldn’t be rushed as you need to keep your eyes peeled. If you are very lucky you may be able to see some green sea turtles here, get your underwater camera ready. In the afternoon, guests can cruise around Deadman’s Bay to enjoy some well-deserved relaxation on the beach.
- Day 5
Cruise to the southern end of the island to discover some of the most beautiful landscapes across the Virgin Islands.
Spend your morning at the baths, a place of natural beauty and exploration. Large boulders have formed interesting rock formations which in turn created rockpools. Perfect for exploring and seeking out interesting small marine life that lives there, this activity is perfect for nature and adventure enthusiasts alike. In the afternoon, your crew will next escort you to the North Sound of Virgin Gorda and the Bitter End Yacht Club where you can climb ashore to mingle with other luxury charter yacht enthusiasts and use the quality amenities for a temporary change of scenery.
The beaches on Virgin Gorda are particularly beautiful so make the most of some tanning time before heading to the Saba Rock Resort for a high-quality dinner to round your day off perfectly.
- Day 6
Situated just off the coast of Scrub Island, Marina Cay is a picture postcard destination that doesn’t even have a glimpse of mainstream tourists. Away from the hustle and bustle you can enjoy the peace of this island and spend the day at your leisure.
Spend a tranquil morning at Marina Cay investigating the beautiful reef off to the west. Great Camanoe is a beautiful underwater spectacle featuring many vibrantly colored corals as well as equally attractive inhabitants. You can expect to see flourishing communities of fish here so don’t forget your underwater camera.
To top off your day at this peaceful location, why not enjoy a five-star alfresco meal prepared by your own personal chef onboard? No doubt this will be a day for you to remember fondly on your Virgin Islands yacht charter.
- Day 7
Jost Van Dyke
On the last full day of your Virgin Islands yachting vacation, the time is yours to do as you wish.
After a morning of unwinding and rejuvenating, we recommend continuing on to Jost Van Dyke as there’s another chance to enjoy some peace and quiet at a natural spa treatment. The Bubbly Pool at Jost Van Dyke is naturally filled with bubbly seawater and creates a mesmerizing whirlpool bath, perfect for relaxing and a great spot for capturing that perfect Instagram picture.
Jost Van Dyke isn’t as quiet as some of the other Virgin Islands but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Dotted along the picturesque beaches you will find an array of bars and restaurants serving up freshly caught and prepared seafood dishes as well as some traditional Caribbean favorites. While visiting these local bars it’s only right that you try some locally produced rum in brightly colored cocktails.
- Day 8
Cruising to St Thomas from Jost Van Dyke you have a little time to enjoy the last few moments on board your chosen luxury charter yacht.
Have a fulfilling breakfast onboard and soak up the inviting views that the Virgin Islands possesses for one last time.
