Day 1 (Friday): We will begin our Adventure by meeting Captain Don at West End, Tortola where he will be waiting with the boat stocked and ready for our arrival. From there, we will sail to Norman Island, known as “Treasure Island,” where pirates are rumored to have hidden their booty. Here we will discover a wealth beyond imagination on hikes above the beautiful sea and discover the real treasure inside through yoga and meditation on the beach.
Day 2 (Saturday): We will travel to the exquisite and exclusive Peter Island. Here you’ll have the option to visit one of the best spas in the world, located at the peak of the island, overlooking a deserted beach with rolling white caps and hovering pelicans. Indulge in a massage or simply lounge on Dead Man’s Beach after yoga. We’ll end the day with a sumptuous dinner ashore under the stars.
Day 3 (Sunday): We’ll make our way to Cooper Island, a hidden gem with incredible snorkeling and a lovely, quiet anchorage. We can explore the shoreline here, dive or snorkel one of the several sunken ships nearby and have dinner at the intimate Cooper Island Beach club.
Day 4 (Monday): We’ll head to the incredible Virgin Gorda where we can greet the sun with salutations in the third largest island in the BVI. We will bond with nature and discover the island’s natural beauty as we wander indigenous, plant-lined trails. To cool off, we can swim in the waters of one of the island’s 4 secret bays and end the day snorkeling at the world-famous Baths, a bay studded with amazing rock formations and teeming with colorful fish.
Day 5 (Tuesday): Depending on the weather, we’ll either earn our sea legs with a long sail to Anegada or take a leisurely trop over to Marina Cay. Each one offers a unique and delightful experience. The long passage to Anegada provides an opportunity to truly commune with open waters and wind. Known for it’s seclusion and fresh, delicious lobster, it’s well worth the trip! And the flower covered island of Marina Cay delights the senses and allows you to snorkel with colorful fish and other sea creatures before satisfying your appetite for fresh cuisine at the renowned Pussers Restaurant ashore.
Day 6 (Wednesday): We’ll choose either Guana Island or the legendary Jost Van Dyke. Guana is one of the few remaining privately owned islands in this part of the world, and with white sandy beaches and 850 acres of tropical forest, mountains, hills and valleys, it’s a nature lovers dream. On the other hand, Jost is referred to as “barefoot island,” and is reknowned world-wide as the capital of casual. With choices like these, you’ll arrive at a whole new level of relaxation as we start to get towards the end of our journey.
Day 7 (Thursday): We’ll spend our final day at Cane Garden Bay in Tortola, a favorite of sailors, and water sports enthusiasts of all sorts. If there is anything you’ve been wishing for and haven’t found on our journey up until now, you can find it here, from special last minute souvenirs to live music. We’re sure to drift off to sleep with the lullaby of gentle steel drums mixed in to the waves.
Day 8 (Friday): We’ll have a short final sail back to West End where you can catch a Ferry towards St. Thomas…OR, maybe you’ll decide to stay and embrace the island life for good!
Living onboard is pure luxury with the Saba 50 Catamaran. You and your travel companion will have a full private cabin with Queen Sized bed and a bath (head) all to yourselves. There is ample room for storage, and bedding will be provided. If you’ve never slept out on the water, you are in for a huge treat. There is nothing like being rocked gently to sleep and waking to the sun streaming in through the port hole.
US Citizens traveling to the British Virgin Islands need a current passport. Check the expiration date to make sure that it does not expire within 6 months of your trip. Visas are not required.
The easiest way to get to Tortola is to fly from the US to St. Thomas (STT) then catch a ferry over to West End, Tortola. The Ferry takes about an hour and offers the first of many amazing views of our island paradise. It’s a lovely way to transition out of “real life” and start to unwind. You can check schedules here.
Sheila and Captain Don will be waiting for you upon arrival at the West End Ferry Terminal and will escort you to the boat.
