Virgin Islands Charters
The U.S. and British Virgin Islands (BVI) are favored cruising grounds for charter vacations. The islands lie close together, forming protected Drake Passage, and offer many protected harbors. They range from volcanic peaks cloaked in green to sandy desert isles. These waters once were filled with pirate ships, and it’s easy to imagine one might still be hiding on the other side of Dead Chest Isle!
Flying into the international airport on St. Thomas, U.S.V.I., you might meet your Virgin Islands yacht charter at Yacht Haven Grande, an upscale yachting, shopping and restaurant complex in Charlotte Amalie. If you prefer a purely natural setting, your itinerary might take you to St. John, an island that is in large part national park. It offers colorful crafts, sandy beaches and great hiking and even guiding snorkeling trails.
In the British Virgin Islands (BVI), an itinerary might start by clearing customs on Jost Van Dyke. Legendary Foxy’s bar and lounge on the beach has welcomed generations of sailors with music and rum punch. Foxy’s now also has its own microbrewery!
Another must-see island is Virgin Gorda, where your charter yacht can anchor in North Sound off the Bitter End Yacht Club, another sailor’s mecca. You can go ashore by tender to enjoy the resort’s beaches, restaurants and watersports, and even take a dip in the swimming pool. But don’t forget to visit The Baths at the island’s other end – a garden of giant boulders piled atop each other, spilling into the sea.
End your cruise at Pusser’s at Soper’s Hole on Tortola. Order a Painkiller and you will find this drink, made with Pusser’s Rum, is aptly named. It will make it less painful to board your flight at neighboring Beef Island Airport to go home.

Here’s a hot tip FROM ONE OF OUR CHARTER EXPERTS ABOUT YOUR VIRGIN ISLANDS YACHT CHARTER:
Without a doubt, a stop at Foxy’s Bar on Jost Van Dyke is a must while chartering in the British Virgin Islands. It’s is just a big beach shack but when the sun starts to set and the music begins, you can be assured that you will dance the night away in the sand. When it comes to ringing in the New Year in the Caribbean Foxy’s is one of best spots!
