Salt Island in the BVI is home to the best diving sites around, including the famous Wreck of the Rhone. The ship, known as RMS Rhone, was like the Titanic in that it was both luxurious and considered unsinkable. However, in 1867, the ship went down in a hurricane.
Today, the Rhone is in only 20 feet of water at some points and reaches as deep as 80 feet. Through the years, corals and sponges have covered the surfaces and brilliant marine life has made the wreck home. The Wreck of the Rhone is considered one the best dives in the BVI and the most visited site of Salt Island.
Some individuals prefer to simply snorkel the reefs here, but many recommend diving all the way to the 80-foot depth. Each time you visit – and you will want to return – you’ll find something that you missed on previous visits and continue to be in awe of this beautiful underwater marine garden. Be sure to look for the spanners (which resemble large wrenches that are 4-feet in length), the silver teaspoon, and the brass porthole, which when rubbed by divers is said to bring luck. The propeller is so massive at 15 feet across that many divers do not realize what it is until they resurface and look back at the wreck.
A vacation to Tortola will ensure that you experience all of the beauty, culture, and cuisine that the BVI has to offer. The island is the largest of the British Virgin Islands as well as being the capital, and it has a wide variety of sites and activities to guarantee that you get to experience all that is the Caribbean on this one island.
The white sandy beaches of Tortola range in size and style, from large, crowded public beaches to quiet, secluded ones. You can go surfing at Apple Bay or relax on the pristine white sands of Elizabeth Beach or drop anchor in Deadman’s bay. Whichever one you choose, you will be sure to enjoy the warm Caribbean waters and clear blue skies that are synonymous with the island of Tortola.
The best areas for swimming, water sports, or snorkeling on Tortola include:
- Apple Bay
- Brewer’s Bay
- Elizabeth Beach
- Josiah’s Bay Beach
- Long Bay Beach
- Smuggler’s Cove
Boater’s paradises on Tortola include:
- Brandywine Bay
- Cane Garden Bay
- Hodge’s Creek
- Soper’s Hole
- Trellis Bay
But the beauty of the island is not just in its water and beaches. It extends inland to the Sage Mountain National Park, which offers steep slopes, native plant life, and a rain forest atmosphere.
Tortola offers plenty of history and culture for yacht charter guests, including the museums, such as the Old Government House Museum, the Virgin Islands Folk Museum, and the 1780 Lower Estate Sugar Works Museum. Fort Burt reveals a glimpse into historic days and the J.R. O’Neal Botanic Gardens provides a chance to indulge in the sights and smells of the tropical flowers and plants that thrive in the warm Caribbean weather. You will also want to pamper yourself with a shopping trip to Road Town and enjoy the unsurpassed cuisine that ranges from fresh seafood to spicy curries and West Indian roti.

BVI yacht charters are like any other vacation in the world. The warm, clear water and the stretches of white sandy beaches make it memorable enough, but when you add the exotic feel of the culture and the fabulous bars, the BVI wins every time.
Willy T Floating Bar
The Willy T Floating Bar, named after William Thornton, is one such bar. Thornton was born on Jost Van Dyke and created the design of D.C.’s Capitol Building. You can always expect to find a crowd on deck, great music, and plenty of delicious menu items.
The Soggy Dollar Bar
The Soggy Dollar Bar on White Bay of Jost Van Dyke is another wonderful bar in the BVI. Since most patrons swim to shore and pay with wet bills, the name is fitting. The Soggy Dollar is best known for its famous Painkiller drink, made with pineapple juice, coconut cream, OJ, and Pusser’s Rum.
Speaking of Pusser’s Rum, be sure to stop by Pusser’s Road Town on Tortola, where you can try a variety of rum drinks and indulge in one of their famous half-pound hamburgers.
Imagine that your family is aboard the stunning 84’ yacht NSS Pattam. This is what one day of your BVI family vacation might be like.
You’d start the morning out with breakfast on the sundeck.
Next you decide to sunbathe on the deck and catch up on some reading.
You all go for a dip in the water.
You relax on the motorized floating chair.
The kids enjoy the water toys.
The meals are amazing!
You hit the beach at White Bay on Jost Van Dyke to relax.
Everyone has more fun in the waters.
You head to the Soggy Dollar to enjoy the infamous Painkiller drink.
Then at the end of this fabulous day, you fall asleep, dreaming of doing it all again tomorrow.
Low rates to make this unforgettable vacation a realize start at $10,900 per week, all inclusive, for two guests. High rates are $18,500 per week, all inclusive, for up to seven guests.
Catamaran Cuan Law
Why should you consider chartering a catamaran over a motor or sailing yacht? Catamarans are quite popular in the BVI, and with good reason. Some of the benefits include:
- Decreased Seasickness: Since catamarans have two hulls, they are less likely to roll, and the movement of the waves doesn’t as easily transfer to the living areas of the yacht.
- Stunning View: With the deck at the top on a catamaran, guests are afforded a 360-degree panoramic view. And in the BVI, that’s a gorgeous backdrop for your life!
- Privacy: Because the cabins are in separate hulls, you will have greater privacy. In addition, the salon and lounging area are above and separate from the cabins.
Additionally, catamarans allow for shallow water cruising, faster cruising speeds, and increased safety when compared with other yacht types,
So whether you’re interested in the roomy 105′ Cuan Law, the stylish 76′ Akasha, or some other luxury catamaran, we can help!

You’ve heard of a yacht charter, but wonder if it wouldn’t be more fun to go on a cruise ship, which has swimming pools, dining halls, and even shopping malls on board. Consider this:
On a cruise ship, you may be near plenty of activities, but you are also never far from lines of people.
On a yacht charter, it is only you and your guests and whatever activity you want to explore.
- Sailing: Will the captain of a cruise ship allow you to drive the ship? Will he teach you how? On a yacht, you can do everything from helping to adjust the sails to taking the helm!
- Water Activities: Cruise ships do offer some great water fun in an over-crowded, swimming pool setting. On a yacht charter, you can get out in the ocean, learn to dive, go snorkeling, waterski, kneeboard, kayak, or anything else that you feel like trying.
- Beaches: Lying out on a deck does not compare to sailing to a secluded beach and swimming ashore. Find your own beach or join the party on one of the popular beaches in the BVI.
- On Land: You don’t spend all day on a boat, unless you choose to do so. Make your own schedule, and go on land for hiking, shopping, the nightlife, or an afternoon at the spa.
