BVISAIL
“You Make the Memories, We’ll Make the Arrangements”

Experience a BVI Sailing Itinerary 14-day adventure. Whether it’s your first sailing vacation to the British Virgin Islands or if you are a frequent visitor, one week is not enough. This allows you to visit (or re-visit) the best of the BVI. Each island has its personality and vibe.

If you’ve sailed before, you’ll know that flexibility is vital as the winds often dictate the route. If you’ve never sailed before, get ready for an incredible adventure.

This sample itinerary gives you an idea of what to expect, from secluded anchorages to lively beach bars.

Day 1 Road Town, Tortola – The Bight, Norman Island

After arriving at your yacht, you will meet the crew you’ve probably already met virtually in person. They will greet you with a chilled beverage, and after a brief safety meeting, you’ll set sail on your 14-day BVI sailing itinerary. Your first destination is the Indians for snorkeling, and then to Norman Island, where you’ll anchor at Bight Bay for the night.

Dinghy to shore and explore the hiking trails on Norman Island. Keep an eye out for pirate booty, as this island is said to be the inspiration for Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Enjoy your first dinner aboard, tailored just for you by your chef. Or, if you prefer, go ashore and have dinner at the Pirate’s Bight Restaurant. And whether you dine aboard or ashore, make sure to tender over to Willy T’s for a tropical cocktail and some island-style fun.

Day 2 Norman Island – Cooper Island

Sleep in or wake early; it’s up to you. While starting your day with a made-to-order breakfast, discuss your plans for the day. The first stop could be the Caves at Norman Island for snorkeling before heading to Cooper Island. On the way, stop snorkeling at the Wreck of the Rhone, just off Salt Island. Besides offering a beach, Cooper Island has a Rum Bar, restaurant, coffee shop, and boutique.

The Baths, Virgin Gorda

Explore the Baths and snorkel at Devil’s Bay National Park. While there, visit the Top of the Baths for a snack and some shopping. Try a Pina Colada at Mad Dogs.

  • Dining at CocoMaya
  • Shopping at Yacht Harbour
  • Taking a taxi to the Copper Mines

Day 4 Spanish Town – Leverick Bay, North Sound

On the way to Leverick Bay this morning, stop at the Dog Islands for snorkeling, swimming, and paddleboarding. Afterward, continue to Leverick Bay. There’s a lot to see and do in this area, such as

  • The Spa at Laverick Bay. Treat yourself to a massage, mani/Pedi, or a complete spa package.
  • Water sports. The North Sound is a protected area that’s great for watersports. Besides snorkeling, there’s kiteboarding, windsurfing, and jet skiing. Or, rent a flyboard if your yacht doesn’t have one. No experience is needed!
  • Fish.
  • Hire a car or taxi and check out some local eateries like Hog Heaven Restaurant or the Restaurant at Leverick Bay.

Day 5 Leverick Bay – Bitter End Yacht Club

Depart mid-morning from Leverick Bay to Prickly Pear Island for some beach and water sports action. Optionally, you can snorkel the reefs that are close to Moskito Island.

  • Enjoy lunch on board before heading over to the anchorage off Bitter End Yacht Club.
  • Take the tender to Saba Rock. Saba Rock is a tiny island — about an acre and a half in size. The island has a small hotel, restaurant, bar, and gift shop. Snorkeling is good around the island — keep an eye out for old sunken cannons.
  • Take the tender to the Fat Virgin Cafe or Oil Nut Bay Marina Village. Or, instead of anchoring off Bitter End Yacht Club, your yacht can dock at the Oil Nut Bay Marina Village. The marina has a pool, shopping, and a restaurant and bar.

Day 6 North Sound – Anegada

By day six, you’ve probably mastered the fine art of doing nothing. This morning you’ll set out on a 2-hour sail from North Sound to Anegada. Once you arrive, you might spend the day exploring Anegada’s unusually flat landscape. It stands in contrast to the other mountainous islands in the BVI.

Activities

  • Look for the endangered Anegada rock iguana, turtles, wild orchids, and frangipani. Journey to the salt ponds on the island’s western end to catch a glimpse of local pink flamingos.
  • Loblolly Bay. Relax on the soft sand, swim in the turquoise water, and dine on local Anegada lobster.
  • Visit the largest town in Anegada, The Settlement. It has a year-round population of about 200.
  • Snorkel Horseshoe Reef. The largest coral reef in the Caribbean will keep you busy for hours. Just remember to reapply your sunscreen.
  • Kiteboard.
  • Rent a scooter or take a taxi tour.

Days 7 & 8 Anegada – Marina Cay or Trellis Bay, Beef Island

Although you may fall in love with Anegada and not want to leave, your captain will set sail for Marina Cay on day eight. Don’t worry, however, because there’s still plenty to see and do in the British Virgin Islands. Activities around Marina Cay include:

  • Snorkeling. The shallow waters here make for superb snorkeling.
  • Taking the dinghy to nearby islands such as Scrub Island, Great Camanoe, and Little Camanoe.
  • Shop. Aragorn’s studio is well-known for hand-crafted art.
  • Party. Monthly Full Moon parties are a blast where locals and visitors mingle and celebrate.
  • Rent a car and explore.
  • Snorkel Bellamy Cay.

Day 9 Marina Cay or Trellis Bay, – Cane Garden Bay

Leave Trellis Bay for a short sail to Cane Garden Bay, stopping at Guana Island to snorkel if you choose. Moor at Cane Garden Bay and throw the water toys overboard for a fun afternoon. In the evening, have dinner on your yacht or go ashore to sample the menus at the many restaurants and bars.
