Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Spit
Our day-sail begins with a exhilarating sail from Tortola’s West End, past Sandy Cay to Sandy Spit – a true tropical island, tiny and stunningly beautiful. We stop there for some snorkeling on the colorful coral reefs in the clear turquoise water. Occasionally weather means we anchor off Little Jost Van Dyke and snorkel on the beautiful Diamond reef, another lovely snorkel site.
After a morning on the water we sail down to White Bay, which is a pristine sandy beach voted one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean. After a delicious lunch on the boat, you can visit the Soggy Dollar Bar, where the famous Pain Killer cocktail originated.
Then we set sail for home with a delectable rum punch cocktail for the trip.
Norman Island and the Indians
The sail to Norman Island from West End or Road Town is often an exhilarating one. Our first stop is at “The Caves” where the treasure was supposedly found in 1915. The schools of friendly Yellow tail Jacks and Sergeant Majors will greet you as you snorkel in the calm, clear waters. The caves themselves are stunning and atmospheric, a must-see for visitors to the BVI.
After a scrumptious lunch on the boat, we offer another opportunity to snorkel at “The Indians” which are large rocks we moor near to enable you to snorkel around them. This is the pinnacle of snorkeling in the BVI, with beautiful corals and underwater canyons; teeming with colorful marine life, including frequent turtle sightings.
If the wind cooperates we will fly the “kite” on the way back to West End, which is a perfect accompaniment to a delicious rum punch.
Cooper, Salt and Peter Island
Our trip to Salt, Cooper and Peter Islands leaves from Road Town and begins at Salt island where you can snorkel on the wreck of the Royal Mail Steamer Rhone (sea conditions permitting). This is a 310’ iron ship that sank in a hurricane in 1867 and is considered one of the best wrecks in the Caribbean. Then we sail to Cooper Island for an appetizing lunch onboard and some beach/snorkel time in Manchioneel Bay. The day often ends with a stop at Deadman’s Bay at Peter Island before we sail back to Road Town. This trip is very flexible and may slightly vary according to sea conditions, weather, guest preference and timing.
We can also do trips to other destinations and pick up at other islands. Contact us for more info.
