The British Virgin Islands form a beautiful string of islands and cays peppered throughout the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This creates an excellent sailing area as the channel is a bit protected by the surrounding islands.

BVI Charter options | Yacht Charter BVI Tortola

Cruising the British Virgin Islands is exciting. You can choose many yacht types, ranging from sailboats to power catamarans or luxury yachts—these range in length from 40ft up to 100ft+. Crews of 2-15 will accompany you while cruising, whatever you want.

Take it easy and cruise casually through various islands for a few days, or take a windier path to new adventures; again, whatever suits your fancy. Whether aboard or ashore (eating) – know that crews have an excellent reputation compared to shoreside restaurants. But nothing beats experiencing local cuisine firsthand, either.

About the BVI destinations

Once again, the British Virgin Islands is undoubtedly filled with world-class yacht charter destinations. These range from Jost Van Dyke and the world-renowned beach bars such as The Soggy Dollar, Virgin Gorda, and The Baths, Anegada, with her rich history. Let’s dive into some of these.

Anegada | Yacht Charter BVI Tortola

There are many beautiful locations to visit during your yacht charter in the BVI. With everything from mountains to gorgeous coral reefs and volcanoes, one location is worth exploring on its own: Anegada. In fact, it’s the only island at fifteen feet above sea level. Furthermore, the landscape here contrasts with other islands within the British Virgin Islands.

This island is approximately 11 miles long by 2 1⁄2 miles wide and close to the most popular tourist destination, Virgin Gorda. Many visitors call it the “Drowned Island” because of the coral reefs island that make up the area. As a result, it is susceptible to flooding at high tides.

Some exciting things to do while on Anegada include, but are not limited to, Scuba Diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, bone fishing, hiking, and kite surfing “even for newbies.”

Jost Van Dyke | Yacht Charter BVI Tortola

This lush, unspoiled island lies three miles northwest of Tortola. It remains untouched, making it an ideal destination for sailors, beachgoers, and sun seekers worldwide. Enjoy its soft, white sands and restaurants while sipping a drink or two at one of its many bar establishments. Get ready to have some unforgettable memories and meet new people.

True enough, Jost Van Dyke is home to the famous Soggy Dollar Bar, where almost everyone drinks painkillers. On your next sailing vacation, you can also visit Foxy’s bar (which stays open until 2 am).

Virgin Gorda and The Baths

As well as being one of the most popular tourist destinations in the BVI, Virgin Gorda is also one of the largest islands in the BVI. It was initially formed from ancient lava flows that have since been shaped into mountains, hills, and valleys.

These natural attractions include Gorda Peak National Park, North Sound, The Baths, and the Valley, which is home to most of these islands’ inhabitants. When Christopher Columbus first set eyes upon this paradise, he named it after its high peak, Virgin Gorda, or “Fat Virgin.”

Remember Tortola, your starting point and the Capital of The BVI.

Tortola is the biggest of the British Virgin Islands islands. It has nearly everything you want, from lush green hills and white-sand beaches to beautiful resorts, restaurants, shops, and breathtaking scenery.

In the southwest of the island, you can enjoy fresh air at Sage Mountain National Park, which has gorgeous hikes and scenic views galore.
