British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) are made up of more than 60 islands and islets at the northern end of the Lesser Antilles, which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada are the major islands of this storied archipelago.
Rich in pirate folklore, and made famous by the likes of Robert Louis Stevenson, the BVI offer some of the best sailing to be had anywhere on the planet. The smaller islands, many perfect for daytime snorkeling trips as well as overnight stays, add to the mix of tropical delights, where you can be as relaxed or as active as you like.
Set sail on a BVI yacht charter from our base at Hodges Creek Marina, centrally located on Tortola. After slipping away from the dock, you will be perfectly positioned in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, the gateway to Paradise.
We will transport you to a place where tranquil turquoise waters lap softly against the hull of your yacht while giant swaths of tropical fish dart just below the surface. Everywhere are white-sand beaches fringed with towering palm trees and picturesque ramshackle beach bars. Other islands remain uninhabited and are just waiting to be explored.
Crystal clear waters, picture-perfect beaches, scenic anchorages and well-equipped marinas make the British Virgin Islands an ideal sailing destination for every sailor. Easy island hops, consistent trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and numerous safe anchorages and mooring fields make this a sailors' dream vacation.
