Experience World Class Luxury With a BVI Yacht Charter
Here at Yacht Charter Specialists we offer a bespoke service helping clients from all over the world detail a luxury crewed yacht charter holiday. One of our most requested services is for assistance with a BVI yacht charter – and once you have visited this fabulous Caribbean destination, you will understand why.
The British Virgin Islands are often referred to as “Natures Little Secrets”. Most locally based sailing yachts include the customs & immigration fees within the charter rate and also offer a free ship’s bar.
British Virgin Islands
The BVI consist of Tortola (Capital), Jost van Dyke (JVD), Norman Island, Peter Island, Cooper Island, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe Island, and Guana Island.
The BVI are a chain of small islands semi protected from the winter swells, which means that you can always seek a protected anchorage at night time for a good night’s sleep. A BVI yacht holiday provides you with exactly what you imagine your dream vacation to be with crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches along with great snorkeling and diving.
It is not possible to fly directly to Tortola or Virgin Gorda from continental USA. US flights are normally routed through either San Juan Puerto Rico or St Thomas. This complicates your travel arrangements slightly and increases your travel time a little; however it also allows you to see more of this fabulous part of the world.
If your chosen BVI yacht charter does not offer St Thomas pickups, you do still have the option to fly into St Thomas and to take a local ferry directly to the BVI. Alternatively, we can arrange a private water taxi for you.
There is also a seaplane service that offers transfers from Puerto Rico directly to North Sound Virgin Gorda, so your vessel can await your arrival in this location. When coming from Europe, it is usual to take a local airline from Antigua or St Maarten. When using our services we will advise you on the best travel options.
Sailing through the BVI is wonderful with around 10 different Islands to visit during your cruise. Sails tend to be approximately 2 hours between islands on a sailing yacht – the longest sail being approximately 4 hours. There are plenty of secluded anchorages to explore in the BVI as well as famous bars in certain anchorages, so you have the choice during your cruise if you prefer the quieter side of the BVI, or if you’d like to visit the famous Soggy Dollar Bar on JVD. This is the perfect cruising destination where you have the choice to anchor in a secluded bay or in a busier location.
You can choose to sail in protected waters or experience more challenging seas; all the time knowing that you can return to a protected anchorage at night time. All the BVIs are volcanic, with the exception of Anegada which is a coral atoll; it lies to the north of Virgin Gorda. Anegada is blessed with beautiful white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, and is famous for its Anegada Lobsters. There is great diving in the BVI.
