Cistern Point


A brief cruise brings you to Cooper Island and the picture-perfect shores of Manchioneel Bay, a haven for underwater adventurers. Nestled at the southern tip, a rocky outcrop extends into the sea. Known as Cistern Point, it offers one of the premier shallow dive and snorkeling locations in the British Virgin Islands. In the clear waters ranging from 10 to 40 feet deep, find yourself diving among spotted eagle rays, queen angelfish, schools of sergeant majors, roaming jacks, and elusive bands of gray snappers.

Sprat Bay


Continue your voyage southwest towards Peter Island and tonight’s anchorage, Sprat Bay. As you approach, the bay welcomes you with swaying coconut trees and quaint beachside bungalows. Secure your spot in the marina and get ready for an evening of culinary delights, just a stroll away at Deadman’s Bay.

Settle into the laid-back ambiance at Deadman’s Beach Bar and Grill, where the white sand meets the sea. Kick off the evening with a refreshing appetizer cocktail as you take your time to peruse their selection of American barbecue favorites and local seafood specialties. Dine in a casual atmosphere accompanied by the music of local musicians, all while the sun dips below the horizon and paints the sky with vibrant hues.

Day 2: Peter Island — Norman Island

Awaken in Sprat Bay and savor breakfast on the aft deck as you venture further southwest. Today’s voyage is a gentle cruise through history, tracing the routes once navigated by pirates of the 17th century in the British Virgin Islands. As you sail these historic waters, you’ll discover colorful marine life and peaceful coves bathed in sunlight.

Your destination for the evening is Norman Island, known in lore as a refuge where weary pirates would recuperate after tumultuous sea battles and conceal their treasures.

The Indians 


Treasure-hunting aside, X marks the spot for unmatched underwater discovery at The Indians dive spot. This natural wonder consists of four rocky pinnacles that tower approximately 49 feet above the surface. A snorkeling adventure here reveals an underwater realm, adorned with colorful coral gardens teeming with soft and hard corals.

Navigate through a 49-foot-long tunnel, swim with schools of tropical fishes, and encounter one of the Caribbean’s most cherished residents—the sea turtles.

The Bight Bay 


As the day wanes, the calm of the evening anchorage embraces you. Located on the north shore of Norman Island, The Bight is where your crew will anchor the yacht as you prepare for a culinary ending to your second day. Rumor has it that this bay harbors the finest appetizer in the British Virgin Islands — the Coconut Shrimp at Pirates Bight.

Hop on the tender and take a detour to the iconic floating bar Willy T’s, for a unique local experience before dining. Step ashore to savor the authentic Caribbean flavors offered by Pirates Bight, and let traditional cuisines and the laid-back ambiance mark the conclusion of day two.

The first stop-over of the day is at the marina in St. Thomas Bay, located in the heart of Spanish Town.

Day 4: Virgin Gorda — Anegada

Wake up to the gentle rhythm of waves and set sight on the exotic allure of Anegada. Unspoiled, very lightly developed, and uncrowded, Anegada emerges as an oasis in the Caribbean. This coral island is renowned for its vivid wildlife and long stretches of white beaches that are surrounded by one of the world’s largest continuous barrier reefs.

Flamingo Pond


A visit to Anegada wouldn’t be complete without flamingo spotting at the Flamingo Pond. This saltwater lagoon is a sanctuary that becomes a stage for these exotic birds, especially in the early morning when they are most lively. Arrive early equipped with binoculars and a camera, and prepare to capture the contrast of the flamingos’ vivid pink plumage against the waters of the pond.

It’s an opportunity to mingle with the island’s friendly locals, discover charming shops, and immerse yourself in the laid-back island vibe.

As the day transitions into evening, find that Setting Point offers arguably the most beautiful sunsets in the British Virgin Islands. Hop ashore and savor local cuisines for dinner, make sure you order the island’s specialty — fresh grilled lobster. While there are no bad places to enjoy this specialty, we suggest visiting the beachside restaurant The Lobster Trap. Serving the day’s catch, this dinner guarantees a memorable meal against the backdrop of a breathtaking Anegada sunset.

Day 5: Anegada — Scrub Island

As the first light of dawn breaks, it’s time to bid farewell to the peaceful allure of Anegada.

This once uninhabited island has since 2010 transformed into a hub of luxury, attracting travelers from around the world eager to indulge in its exclusive atmosphere and marine surroundings.

But first, a stop over at Great Dog.
