Having fully decompressed on your first day of charter, it’s time to do some exploring as you make your way east through the British Virgin Islands on your week long, crewed charter on your own private yacht. As mentioned in the first post of this series, this itinerary is just an example of how you might spend your day with the wonderful crew of Bliss, Gareth and Kristine. That’s the beauty of this type of vacation, each charter is unique and your captain will help you plan an itinerary that is uniquely yours!
After a good morning breakfast (9.30am), a morning cruise can take you to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. This takes roughly 2 hours to sail and is most picturesque. Now you anchor at this spectacular rock formation at +-11.30am; it is here you can discover the beautiful world underwater and on land.
Wake up in Spanish Town, VG, and meet in the cockpit, where morning coffee is waiting for you, while breakfast is served. After breakfast raise the anchor and proceed to Long Bay Virgin Gorda , relax here for the remainder of the day and evening. Spend the morning enjoying the crystal clear water and the 1 mile long foot-print free beach. There are no palm threes at this anchorage but collecting sea shells on the beach or snorkeling is divine. The view at sunset from Long Bay Virgin Gorda simply cannot be beaten it is a view 25 miles down to St Thomas where the sun sets, surrounding you (or the horizon at this point) are a multitude of tropical islands in the sun. Every night at sunset is dead calm, so enjoy Happy hour with treats and cocktails, let your mind escape into paradise. It is here on a full moon that you can see each grain of sand on the seabed 15 feet below. Supper is served in the cockpit, then amble off to sleep, those long sleeps of content.
