7 Day Sailing Adventure in BVI! 2 spots open!

Join the crew! Sail the turquoise water with reefs, colorful fish and sunny beaches. Book your cabin on our Beneteau 50 sailing yacht. 7 days and nights with most meals included.

A group of adventurous sailors will set sail to explore the many islands, cays, and reefs of the BVI. We will visit picturesque palm fringed isles with great beach bars and bands, restaurants, hiking trails and snorkeling sites. Take the helm, trim the sails, stand bow watch..... or just chill and take in the balmy sunny days. Learn big boat sailing with Captain Michael, a USCG Licensed Master and US Sailing Association Certified Instructor. Beginners are welcome!

PICK YOUR WEEK- TWO TRIPS SCHEDULED:

week 1: 3/1-8/2014 (RSVP on 3/1 event listing)

Arrive on Tortola, BVI. The Charter will depart from Manuel Reef Marina, Sea Cows Bay, Tortola, British Virgin Islands on the Morning of 3/9/14 and return the following Saturday morning (4/16). Many people also stay on Tortola or another local island for a few days on the front or back end of the trip for some relaxing beach time.

Our 50' Beneteau yacht has 4 cabins, each with a private head. The boat will be provisioned for all breakfasts and half of the lunches and dinners. We will cook on-board meals communally. Other meals will be taken on shore at the many fun local eateries.

On the last trip we had fabulous snorkeling and saw a wide variety of sea life, including, turtles, tarpon, barracuda, queen angels, sharks, lobsters and spotted eagle rays! Snorkeling on reefs is exciting and easy to learn. We will spend each night anchored in a different harbor or deserted cove. At night the clear, dark skies give us a fabulous celestial light show including numerous shooting stars.
