Spectacular Yachting Holidays In The British Virgin Islands

Pristine waters, palm-fringed beaches, and perfect sailing conditions almost all year round - it's easy to see why the BVI are one of the Caribbean's top sailing destinations.

The vibrant sun shines on a pale blue canvas, a cooling easterly breeze at your back as you sail between Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada.

It's not just about the great sailing weather, though - the BVIs offer spectacular natural beauty, a full spectrum of aquatic life, and legendary watering holes.

With consistent trade winds, well-equipped marinas, easy island hops and line-of-sight navigation, the BVIs are a wonderful choice for every sailing holiday.

Why You’re Sure to Love Sailing in Tortola

Start your BVIs yacht charter from Tortola - the largest of the islands - where bougainvillea adorned hillsides serve as the backdrop to gorgeous sandy bays and beach bars serving rum cocktails that will help you relax into that famous Caribbean vibe.

Over a week sailing the BVIs you will have your choice of secluded anchorages, vibrant bays and serviced marinas offering excellent shops and restaurants.

Spend your days swimming in crystal waters and uncovering the many hidden wonders of these islands. Take in the breath-taking Baths at Virgin Gorda where a unique formation of huge granite boulders has resulted in myriad caves and secret pools to explore.

What Sets Sailing in the British Virgin Islands Apart

Sailing in the British Virgin Islands is different from sailing anywhere else in the world, and for good reason. Here you will find some of the whitest beaches, incredible aquatic life, and a mix of natural beauty and friendly locals.

Whether you want to spend your days lounging on deck, soaking up the sun, and snorkelling in the BVIs with a crewed sailboat charter, or you want to hop from island to island to explore on a bareboat yacht charter, we can meet your needs.
