Discover Caribbean The Virgin Islands

The Virgin Islands


The Virgin Islands archipelago, a group of Caribbean islands, cays, and islets, feature powdery white sand beaches, stunning coral reefs and national parks, and include the most exotic of US territories (USVI) and sister islands “The British Virgin Islands” (BVI).  Sighted by Christopher Columbus in 1493, all were settled by numerous European countries while becoming a famous haunt for pirates. 

The pirates are gone, but exploration of these tropical rain forests, lightly cooled by trade winds, is still popular. Each island has distinct attractions, from the famous snorkeling of the coral reefs near Anegada to the rum bars on Jost Van Dyke.  Resorts, villas, and restaurants offer up civilization, while seclusion remains close by.  St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. James, and Water Island feature sailing as only part of the itinerary.  Scuba or snorkel, hike an island, explore an 18th century ruin or a sugar plantation house, or simply relax on a quiet, isolated beach. 

Abundant sea life populates the crystal blue waters of these unspoiled islands as turtles come up for air around you.  Catch a fish or lobster for a memorable dinner on the beach.  Enjoy fresh local cuisine and rum cocktails in the numerous port towns while listening to lively steel drum music.  Renting paddle boards or kayaks gives you an alternate view of the coastlines.  Different times of the year bring new things to experience – from turtles hatching, to the clearest stargazing.  Sailing from one island to another is the most enjoyable way to experience it all.  Both the BVI and USVI are well worth the trip.

Luxury Accommodations

Customize your vacation by choosing the sailing yacht that suits your individual needs.  A “monohull” offers an exciting “tilt with the wind” sailing experience, while a “dual hull catamaran” has more spacious common areas and a flat, smoother voyage.  Other considerations include the number and size of sleeping areas, heads (bathrooms), and amenities from sun decks to galley size.  The photos of yachts below are examples of possibilities.  There are a wide variety of floor plans, privacy considerations and budget, with sizes depending upon the number in your group, from two to eight guests plus your captain/crew/chef.
