Cabin Charter Sailing in the BVI
Trip 14 - Sunday 19 April to Sunday 26 April 2020
This is an overview of cabin charter sailing trip around the BVI. It is the perfect destination for solo travellers, couples or small groups looking for fabulous sailing and lots of fun. And it is the sailing trip if you are looking for hands-on sailing experience with an RYA sailing instructor, an all-inclusive menu and bar and beautiful anchorages.
Beginner and experienced sailors receive a very warm welcome as we pack in as many stunning islands as we can during the charter. We aim to see the hot spots, the highlights and get off the beaten track too. Changes may take place due to your requests and weather conditions.
Meet Sam and Neil from BlueFoot Travel and your fellow sailors at 14:00 (2 PM) in Trellis Bay, just a 5-minute walk from the airport. Then get settled into your cabin on Nemo. After Neil gives the guest briefing we will set sail across the Sir Francis Drake Channel to The Baths in Virgin Gorda. During this sail, you can learn the ropes and try your hand at the helm. We will have our first yummy dinners on Nemo tonight.
Wake up on board Nemo in heaven! The Baths are incredible, with huge, house-sized boulders literally piled on top of each other. There are several paths through the boulders that lead to Devil’s Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the British Virgin Islands. Go snorkelling in the Baths, or take the kayak or paddleboard around these incredible rock formations. Mid-morning we will start to tack up towards Richard Branson’s Neckar Island, during which you can get some great hands-on experience helming Nemo. We will have lunch on the go, as we head up to Gorda Sound. We will then head ashore for cocktails and if we are in luck the Pirate Show will be on at Leverick Marina. After lots of laughs, Arggghhhhs and rum, we will head back to Nemo for dinner on board.
Today we will sail to Anegada. Known as the drowned island, this low-lying coral and limestone sand bar is said to have claimed nearly 300 ships! With Captain Neil on the helm, there is no need to worry though, and when we get there you can enjoy Anegada’s miles of sandy beaches and lobster! We aim to get there in time for you to explore the island reefs, beaches and many beach bars and will head ashore for a delightful lobster dinner at The Wonky Dog.
Another really fun sail today, with lots of time for you to practice your sailing skills. We will be heading to Lee Bay on Great Camanoe and Guana Island. These are two beautiful spots for swim and snorkel and walking along long sandy white beaches. Dinner will be served on board Nemo.
What could be better than a day spent snorkelling and exploring sandy islands with palm-fringed beaches and turquoise waters! Perhaps you would like a cocktail or two thrown in for good measure 😉 We will sail to Great Harbour on Jost Van Dyke for a cocktail at Foxy’s Beach Bar and hopefully also get to visit the Soggy Dollar at White Bay in Dory the Dinghy too!
After breakfast, we will sail past the USVIs to the Indians, a truly fabulous snorkelling area. We will then sail over to the Bight at Norman Island for our evening meal and some cocktails and fun times at Willy Ts!
After breakfast, we will sail to the Wreck of the RMS Rhone for a refreshing snorkel. This is an amazing wreck snorkel experience – not to be missed, especially when snorkelling through the air bubbles from the divers below. After snorkelling, we will sail to Cooper Island for our last meal ashore.
We will sail back to Trellis Bay, giving you a chance for some final sailing practice. You will be ready to head to the airport from around 12:00 (12 PM).

Please note that we will not be able to fish in the British Virgin Islands due to local restrictions in marine regulations, in order to help safeguard the fish population. We promise to bring you places where you can snorkel and see the fish in their natural habitat.
