The U.S. and British Virgin Islands are among the most popular yacht charter destinations in the world.
With shopping hubs like Mongoose Junction on St. John, beach bars like Foxy’s on Jost Van Dyke, and world-renowned snorkeling venues like The Baths on Virgin Gorda, the Virgin Islands offer a wide variety of fun.
This round-trip itinerary from St. Thomas gives you plenty of time for multiple stops in both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Note the short cruising distances between most of the islands, one of the features that make the Virgins such a terrific yacht charter destination
You will find below an itinerary example from the 76ft. Catamaran AKASHA, one of the most luxury sailing Catamarans.
For the more active it is the perfect location for some Hobie Cat Racing, Water-skiing, Windsurfing or Hiking - or perhaps strolling around the famous Bitter End Yacht Club for some light shopping. Then a late afternoon a short hop to Prickly Pear Island to enjoy a deserted anchorage and beautiful views of Necker Island over sunset cocktails.
If you wish, partake in one Akasha's themed nights - Pirates, 70's disco .. the choice is yours!
A short sail to Marina Cay, a very pretty island which offers live entertainment at cocktail hour.
A perfect anchorage for more water sports, including Scuba diving and snorkelling. For the daring dive from Akasha's fly bridge into the deep water! Either relax in this pristine location watching the graceful Pelicans that gather on the rocky shore, or take another afternoon cruise to historical Salt Island which harbours the ship wreck of HMS Rhone and whose inhabitants still pay a bag of salt a year to The Queen as rent.
Snorkel or Dive HMS Rhone or have a cocktail served to you on Akasha's "Rum Island" watching the sun go down.
