A BVI yacht charter is about so much than cruising the crystal blue waters, lounging on deck of the luxurious yacht, and having a friendly and attentive crew attend to your needs. Yes, there’s that, but there are so many more activities just waiting for you in the Virgin Islands!
The captain will be more than happy to help you learn to sail the yacht, and if you already know how, you can take the helm and sail to your heart’s content. Of course, you’ll want to play in the water. We provide the toys; you have the fun! Waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding, noodling, snorkeling, kayaking, and so much more!
One of the most relaxing BVI activities is relaxing on the most beautiful beaches around – from the secluded, natural beaches to the Caribbean-music-blaring, crowds-of-dancers beaches – you’ll find it all! Perhaps you’d rather relax with a hot-stone massage or indulge in any number of treatments in one of the world-class spas. You might want to explore further inland by hiking on Norman Island or Peter Island or up Gorda Peak on Virgin Gorda. Or perhaps you might explore under water while SCUBA diving one of the hundreds of spectacular dive sites of varying experience levels.
BVI activities extend to the everyday, such as shopping, dining, and dancing; all of which are made magical and exceptional, simply because they are in the Virgin Islands.
Atlantis: It's not just about the Casino
The Atlantis Resort and Marina is more than just a luxurious casino. It is home to the Aura Nightclub, where the rich and famous gather to enjoy delicious specialty drinks, top music, and a sunken glass dance floor. At the resort you will also find a first-class interactive dolphin program. Dolphin Cay is a fourteen-acre habitat that offers guests the opportunity to swim with, feed, train, and care for these intelligent creatures. The marina is one of the best in the Bahamas and always active with some of the most elegant megayachts from around the world.
Paradise Island, of course, is definitely a famous for the Atlantis Casino. With 90 table games and 850 slot machines in this glorious 50,000 square foot facility, it’s no wonder it is so popular. Activities and events – such as the Pegasus Race and Sports Book, live concerts, and tournaments – draw crowds beyond the regular influx of guests.
Regardless of your interest in the Atlantis Resort and Marina, you will be certain to have a memorable Bahamas yacht charter.
Imagine an island that is all beach with access to the water no matter where you go. That island is Eleuthera. Long and thin – only two miles at its widest point – no matter where you go inland, you’re never far from the beach. And what a beach!
Eleuthera has amazing pink sand beaches. They stretch along the coastline, uninterrupted and seemingly endless. Or you can sail into one of the many secluded coves and find a little private space that is all your own.
Scuba diving is a popular activity here on Eleuthera, particularly along the Devil’s Backbone, the jagged reef to the north where numerous natural wrecks lie. There are a few villages on the island to enjoy local cuisine and interact with the friendly locals. You may also enjoy swimming, snorkeling, fishing, or just enjoying the beauty of the Bahamas around you.
Island Lefkas, part of the Ionian Islands in Greece, offers a beautiful overview of Onassis Island from the east, and some of the best beaches and sunset views from the west.
Lefkas is close enough to the mainland to be connected by a bridge, giving easy automobile access, although most people prefer to visit the area on a Greece yacht charter. Water sports – including swimming, scuba diving, and windsurfing – are popular, as well as hiking and cycling. The beaches are relaxing as well as beautiful or you can explore the ancient archaeological sites.
This Greek island is less commercial than the surrounding islands, offering quiet and seclusion and a bit of untamed wilderness. You may see small villages with stone buildings, Greek men out on fishing boats and Greek women sitting together crocheting. It is quaint and beautiful, while still offering everything that travelers may need, especially at Nidri and Vassiliki.
After a complete engine room refit, Yacht Olga is back in the water and ready for you! If you book your charter before June 1, 2012, you’ll receive the special re-introductory rate of $59,000 per week, plus expenses and tax.

Your yacht Olga charter will include massages, mariachi singer, wireless karaoke, beach paella, Wifi, scuba diving from the yacht (for certified divers), a deck Jacuzzi, and use of the 22’6” Navurania tender and a three-person waverunner.
Your vacation on Yacht Olga will bring you to some of the prettiest islands in the Bahamas – the Exumas. This 120-mile-long archipelago is ideal for a yacht charter, as you can explore the small uninhabited cays and relax on the picturesque beaches.
