British Virgin Islands Ultimate Underwater Experience

From Tortola to Tortola

7 Days, 56 Miles

Unlike its busier US Virgin neighbours, the British Virgin Islands still remain fairly quiet and somewhat undiscovered, making them an ideal island escape. From the world-class diving off Salt Island to the virtually deserted beach paradise on Anegada, an itinerary voyaging through the BVI combines some of the best underwater scenery with soft sands and bright skies perfect for relaxing. A week spent sailing amongst these gems is a wonderful space of time in which to experience the highlights and still have plenty of time for peaceful relaxation.

  • Day 1
    6 Miles
    Tortola – Jost Van Dyke
    Tortola – Jost Van Dyke

    Begin your journey through the British Virgin Islands at the yachting hotspot of Tortola; the largest of the islands full of busy towns set amongst lush mountains and sweeping coastlines. Definitely worth a visit while on the island is the slim, sheltered curve of sand that is Cane Garden Bay; an excellent place to drop anchor with its entertaining water-sports facilities and restaurant-lined streets. A short sail away is the island of Jost Van Dyke which is less developed than many of its neighbours. Despite its small size you will find a lively and upbeat crowd on its shores taking advantage of the laid-back atmosphere and generous small-town spirit. There are also more than enough pretty anchorages, beaches, bars and restaurants for an evening of entertainment.
