Sail under blue skies through the protected Caribbean waters and get to know the paradisiacal islands of the famous British Virgin Islands.

Your sailing adventure begins around 18:00 at Marina Forts Louis. Board your modern catamaran and sip on a delicious welcome cocktail. And then, you’ll already cast off for your sailing adventure! Make yourself comfortable in your cabin and enjoy a delightful dinner with your fellow passengers. The catamaran will make its way through the night.

Sailing time: approx. 12 hours

Greet the blue skies and morning sun aboard your luxury catamaran and begin your day with a tasty breakfast. Today’s destination is The Baths, a beach area on the southern tip of Virgin Gorda. Gigantic granite rock formations, caves, and natural water basins characterize the picturesque landscape. Stroll along the white dream beach and visit Devils Bay’s quaint shops. Find some souvenirs and enjoy the stunning panorama — what a sight!

After lunch, continue to Norman Island. Your dinner is served at The Blight restaurant.

Sailing time: approx. 3 hours

After breakfast, sail to The Caves on Norman Island and discover its incredible marine life. Later, continue to Jost Van Dyke and anchor off White Bay for lunch.

You will change sceneries and discover the Great Harbour in the late afternoon, where you will have dinner and enjoy a sundowner.

Today you will reach Sandy Cay, a small island lined with palm trees and a white sandy beach. Depending on the wind, you might have the opportunity to stop at Sandy Split: a dream island perfect for morning dips.

In the late afternoon, you will sail south to Cane Garden Bay and anchor for the night. Stroll through the quaint shops and browse through the variety of souvenir shops. Perhaps you’ll find one or two souvenirs for your loved ones back home!

Sailing time: approx. 3 hours

Today your catamaran will take you to Anegada*, a 19-kilometer-long and 5-kilometer-wide coral island. This dreamy untouched paradise offers snow-white beaches, turquoise water, and a fairytale coral reef. Escape to this desolate paradise and explore the third largest coral reef in the world during a snorkeling excursion. In the late afternoon, you will sail back to St. Maarten.

Optionally, there’s a short taxi ride (approx. 15 USD) to Loblolly Bay, where you can swim in the turquoise waters or enjoy their world-famous lobster cuisine with a few cold beers or rum cocktails at the beach bar.

*In bad weather conditions, Cooper Island and Cistern Point (snorkeling hotspot) will replace your trip to Anegada.

Today you will set sail for Virgin Gorda North Sound and Leverick Bay.

After lunch, continue to Prickley Pear Island National Park on the north side of North Sound. Discover its beautiful beaches and ideal spots for swimming and sunbathing.

Today you reach Grand Case in the north of St. Martin. Enjoy a delicious breakfast, then continue to the St. Martin Nature Reserve on Tintamarre Island. Snorkel in the crystal clear waters and discover a unique underwater world!

At the end of the day, you’ll return to Grand Case, a small town on the French side of St. Martin. Since it has many high-quality restaurants, the town is the capital of French-West Indian gastronomy.

Your eventful sailing trip through the British Virgin Islands ends today. After your last breakfast on board, say goodbye to your fellow travelers and leave your luxury catamaran with many memories and countless photos.
