There is no need to be an experienced mariner to enjoy BVI yacht charters. They can easily be enjoyed by inexperienced landlubbers alike. The English, French, Danes, Dutch and Spanish have all influenced the Virgin Islands over the centuries. The islands have a rich history that includes several legends involving pirates, buccaneers and other colourful rapscallions. There are forts to explore, shipwrecks to dive and many coves and bays in which to anchor, swim and explore.
Most charters begin from Tortola, the main island. They then head straight for The Bight at nearby Norman Island, one of the most popular and idyllic anchorages in the region. There are several permanent mooring balls available and a choice of two astounding restaurants.
One of the most popular spots most visited by yachts is The Bight at Norman Island. This tranquil anchorage is served by two world famous restaurants. Those in a raucous partying mood favour the William Thornton (Willy T) Floating Bar & Restaurant (known as Willy T). Alternatively, the Pirates Bight is located immediately by the beach at the head of the bay and offers a more sedate dining experience.
Salt Island is home to the wreck of the Rhone made famous by the movie called The Deep. This wreck is widely regarded by many scuba divers to be the best wreck dive in the Caribbean. Scenes shot at the wreck featured a large moray eel; many of its friends and relatives still live in the wreck.
Anegada is a short sail away. More an atoll than an island, it is flat and surrounded by a vibrant reef that is a true underwater paradise for snorkelers and divers. Being flat, Anegada is also rimmed by miles of pristine, sandy beaches. The and is renowned for the best, grilled lobsters in the Caribbean.
