Fall is coming. There’s no stopping it and no denying it. Through most of the country, temperatures are already dropping and leaves are already turning colors. There’s even some talk of snow! Now’s the time to plan your winter escape to the Virgin Islands!
A charter on Yacht Viaggio is the perfect way to warm up during those snowy winter months. This 74’ motor-yacht has raised the bar on performance, comfort, and fun! It sleeps six in the three luxury cabins, each designed using the highest-quality materials. Yacht Viaggio comes with a 17’ RIB tender, towing ring, kneeboard, wakeboard, 2-person kayak, water skis, and snorkeling gear.
Head to the Baths on Virgin Gorda to enjoy swimming and snorkeling among the massive boulders in the sand. Or cruise to White Bay to relax in a hammock on Jost van Dyke. Or, perhaps, you’d rather go scuba diving at the Wreck of the Rhone near Salt Island. Wherever you choose to go on your BVI yacht charter, you’ll be sure to have a memorable – and warm – time!

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.
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!

Believed to be the setting of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island,” Norman Island has a history filled with pirates and hidden gold. While legends spur much of the talk of buried treasure, the amazing Caves – one of the most popular tourist attractions in the BVI – add to the allure of Norman Island.
This two and a half mile long island is located at the southern end of the British Virgin Islands, near the US Virgin Islands. While the island itself is uninhabited, you will find Pirates Bight bar and restaurant on Norman Island. Available for lunch and dinner, the eatery serves West Indian cuisine in a perfect deserted island setting.
Norman Island has rolling hills sloping gently to the waters edge. There are beautiful bays and offshore reefs for yachting, diving, snorkeling, and many other water activities in the BVI.

While there are a wide variety of activities in the BVI, one thing that you don’t want to miss is a visit to Foxy’s Bar. Foxy’s is famous in the Caribbean – and around the world – not only for its food and drinks, but also for its atmosphere. Located at Great Harbour on Jost Van Dyke, this club is the most happening place in the Islands, particularly on New Year’s Eve.
Foxy’s Bar for the Old Year’s Night celebration is unlike any other. The cool ocean breeze mingles with the music and the dancers just can’t get enough. The band plays from dawn to dusk. The drinks flow and the food is hot and delicious.
For a wild night of fun and excitement, Foxy’s is where it’s at. The wealthy, the famous, and the beautiful all head to the British Virgin Islands to welcome in the New Year and say goodbye to Old Year’s Night.

The endless beaches of Anegada
If you are seeking a retreat to the exotic, or you want to literally get away from it all, you should spend a few days on Anegada.
The only of the BVI islands that is flat, Anegada was formed by the barrier reef unlike its southern neighbors, which are of volcanic origin. The highest point of the island reaches only 28 feet above sea level, which is probably how it received its name, which means “drowned land” in Spanish.
A BVI yacht charter to Anegada will take about two hours, but it is well worth the trip. The island itself is protected by the Horseshoe Reef, the largest coral reef, making it a great destination for snorkelers. Divers enjoy the area because of possibility to explore any of the three hundred recorded ship wrecks. An amazing amount of unique flora and fauna can be found here, such as the Anegada rock iguana, Caribbean roseate flamingoes, and wild orchids.
The few hundred island natives live off the ocean and enjoy the quirky lifestyle that living on this distinctive paradise requires.

Tortola Hills in the BVI
Considering a cruise for your next Virgin Islands vacation? Perhaps you should reconsider. The benefits of a BVI yacht charter are as clear as the blue water it sails upon.
On a cruise ship, you are bunking with everyone on board. Other passengers are in the Jacuzzi or at the dining area when you are. They’re going ashore when you go ashore. They’re visiting that quaint little shop when you are. They’re doing what you’re doing, when you’re doing it. And whether you’re docking at Tortola or at sea on a huge ship, it’s going to feel awfully crowded, awfully quickly.
On a yacht charter to Tortola, you are free to do what you want, when you want with WHO you want. If you sail into a harbor and see a cruise ship docked, then just sail right back out again to a secluded bay and drop anchor in solitude.
Enjoy a BVI yacht charter
There’s no standing in line. No fighting for original artwork in an island shop. No overcrowded beaches.
Be in charge of your vacation, and enjoy it with only those who you invite along. Not 500 strangers.
