Day by Day on a BVI Charter
A standard private, crewed, all inclusive yacht charter week is 7 nights/8 days. In the BVI, this allows you plenty of time to enjoy all the “must see” sights if you’re new to the BVI or to explore more “off the beaten path” spots if you’re returning.
The popular charter catamaran BLISS has provided a sample itinerary for a week-long charter in the BVI. This is just an example to provide you with ideas. The beauty of this type of vacation is that it’s all about YOU – where you want to go, what you want to eat and what you want to do. So read on and get inspired to come up with your own itinerary. We’ll cover just day 1 in this blog entry and then days 2-8 on the next couple of entries.
Thanks to the exceptional crew on BLISS, Gareth and Kristine, for their help.

Arrive by air at Beef Island, Tortola, British Virgin Islands where your captain is waiting for you in his white uniform. You can walk 100 yards to your boat or take a taxi, but it is very close, so walking is fine for most people. Within 10 minutes of meeting your captain, you can be on board Bliss enjoying tropical drinks prepared by a master lady cocktail queen. All charters begin at 12 noon, normally you arrive at 1pm, so a light lunch is prepared for your group while you settle into your new luxury yacht.
Once you’re settled, your Captain motors slowly round to one of the world’s most magnificent islands, Marina Cay (Republic of Jose Cuervo), for the evening, one of the smallest of the Virgin Islands and my favorite Caribbean island. Marina Cay has a lovely beach restaurant under the coconut palms where you can relax and enjoy the tropical surroundings, or you can jump in the warm crystal clear tropical waters and snorkel round the small reef. Children as well as adults can water ski, kneeboard or snorkel here, but going ashore to explore this island is a big “must.”
Hors d’oeuvres are served round 5 pm. The chef will bring out snacks and your favorite happy hour cocktail for all to enjoy. Take in your first gorgeous sunset while relaxing on the trampoline. After sunset, dinner is served in the main cockpit area under the stars for everyone to enjoy your first tropical calm evening in Paradise.
