BVI Crewed Catamaran Itinerary Map

Day 1: Tortola to the Bight, Norman Island

After you've met your crew in Road Town, settle into life aboard your magnificent catamaran with a welcome drink and nibbles as you relax into the BVI rhythm. Set sail to Norman Island, which is just over an hour south. On the way, you can anchor briefly and Snorkel at “The Caves” and discover the wonderful marine life found below the turquoise BVI waters. Anchor in the Bight and enjoy a spectacular sunset and delightful cuisine prepared by your chef. If you don’t want the day to end there, then head to Willy T’s floating bar where you can dance and enjoy some fabulous shooters!

Day 2: Norman Island, Peter Island & Cooper Island

Begin the day with a short sail to “The Indians”, a collection of rocks that resemble an Indian Headdress, for superb scenery and some amazing snorkelling or diving. Sailing on to Peter Island, you will discover Deadman’s Bay, an ideal spot for a picnic on the long white sandy beaches. For active groups, get out the paddle boards and keep an eye out for the sea turtles that you’re sharing the azure waters with! After a day in the water, sail over to Haulover at Cooper Island to see a spectacular coastline, easily explored by kayak. Here, you can gaze out at another beautiful sunset while dining on local cuisine at the Cooper Island Beach Club, and perhaps a few rum cocktails from the largest selection of Rum in the BVI!

A note about the extraordinary cuisine on a Crewed BVI Yacht charter

One of the most superb and memorable parts of your crewed catamaran charter often has nothing to do with snorkelling or sunsets, it's the unbelievable food that your dedicated chef prepares along the way. All of the crewed yachts that Boatbookings recommends have excellent chefs aboard who provide up to 3 glorious meals a day that are specifically designed around your preferences and dietary requirements. You are guaranteed a culinary adventure as exciting as this BVI itinerary! 

You don't need to cook, clean, or even refill your wine glass - your crew will take care of your every wish. All you need to do is kick back, relax and enjoy!

Day 3: The Wreck of the Rhone, The Baths and Virgin Gorda

The Baths,Virgin Gorda - BVI Itinerary

After an exotic Caribbean breakfast, backtrack to the far end of Salt Island to the Wreck of the Rhone National Park where, below the waves, you will discover a huge sunken mail ship that makes an exciting diving and snorkelling site! Once you’ve had your fill of shipwrecks, you can sail for the famous “Baths” – a 40-foot rock formation at the southwestern tip of Virgin Gorda where you can follow a path through the rocks and splash around in the rock pools. 

After having a good soak, you can hike up to the Top of the Baths restaurant and bar for refreshing drinks. Hop back on board and cruise along the coastline of Virgin Gorda. You may wish to stop off at one of the stunning beaches before anchoring for the night in a well-protected harbor thanks to the surrounding reefs and islands including Richard Branson’s Necker Island. Consider a drink at Leverick Bay, or even better the Saba Rock Resort, and watch the fish feeding at sundown.

Day 4: Virgin Gorda to Anegada

Anegada BVI Itinerary

The North Sound Virgin Gorda is a boater's paradise; you will find a plethora of beautiful anchorages and some of the finest resorts and restaurants in the Caribbean. It is the perfect place to make the most of your onboard water toys – so why not get out on the water and use your onboard Seabobs or E-Foil to do laps of your BVI crewed catamaran?

On your one-tack sail up to Anegada, you will pass by Richard Branson's exclusive Necker Island, and then sail the open Atlantic. When you see a number of catamarans moored together, you've reached your destination and will anchor with them. Anegada is quite different from the other BVI islands, as it is composed entirely of coral, and it is known for excellent snorkelling on its reefs and long, white beaches.

Once you've arrived at Anegada, set up camp on the amazing white-sand beach and play frisbee, and then rent a jeep and head across the island to Loblolly Bay - a heavenly stretch of deserted beaches that will provide you with another level of relaxation. Here you can indulge in sunbathing and lounging on the white sandy beaches and explore the underwater sea life on the beautiful reef. We would suggest a quick pitstop in the Anegada Beach Club to sample their Painkiller, maybe it will be your favorite in the BVI?

On your way back, you might even glimpse the famous pink flamingos on the salt pond.

We have always experienced amazing sunsets on Anegada, as you look westward toward Jost Van Dyke in the distance (tomorrow's destination). Make sure you have time to enjoy it, with an appropriate sundowner drink! If you like lobster, your crew will make a reservation to eat at one of the lobster restaurants in the bay, where you will eat beach-grilled lobster caught just that morning! You are destined to sleep well having fully embraced a full Anegada day!

Day 5: Anegada to Little Jost Van Dyke

After breakfast, you will continue to sail southwest towards Jost Van Dyke, following the north side of Tortola. There are often sightings of whales and dolphins on the way up to Little Jost Van Dyke, so be sure to have your camera ready! For those interested in a relaxing massage, you can stop by the famous IXORA Spa on Scrub Island on route, or alternatively we can organise a specialist fishing excursion within the territory, or offshore to try your arm to catch a Wahoo! Speak to your Boatbookings representative for more details!

Day 6: Little Jost Van Dyke to Sandy Spit and White Bay, Jost Van Dyke

On the sixth day of your luxury BVI catamaran charter, head out early to be the first at Sandy Spit, one of our favorite destinations in the BVI. This tiny but beautiful deserted island is a great place for snorkeling and taking a few pictures for your Instagram account. Jump back aboard for a fresh Tuna Poke-inspired lunch, and get ready for a fun-filled afternoon throwing a football at the legendary White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. If you wish, take a dingy ride over to Great Harbor, where you can dance at the renowned Foxy's bar and restaurant, which is one of the most iconic spots in the Caribbean!

Day 7: Soggy Dollar and Foxy's Bar, White Bay, Jost Van Dyke to the Bight, Norman Island

On your final day, you will wake up to the peace and beauty of one the world’s most beautiful beaches: White Bay. Here, it is a tradition to go snorkeling to search for the "soggy dollars" people have lost on the swim back to their boats! After this, you can walk to the end of the beach and climb the hill to get a magnificent view of the White Bay panorama. Lastly, try the requisite "Painkiller" drink at the renowned Soggy Dollar Bar as you watch boats cruising by. Alternatively, head to the lively Foxy's Bar for a couple of cocktails as you sit back and relax on the pure white sand. In the late afternoon, we recommend you start the sail back to the Bight, Norman Island in order to get to Road Town by noon the next day.

Day 8: Return to Road Town, Tortola

Why not make the most of your final moments in paradise and cruise around the point to Privateer Bay on your final morning? Here is the ideal spot for you to have one last crack at snorkeling, waterskiing, paddleboarding or any other water sports you have picked up over the week. Finally, you'll have a beautiful sail across the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Road Town and then it is time to say your goodbyes! All good things come to an end, but it really will have been a holiday of a lifetime; you will want to come back year after year!
