Duration: TBA

Gustavia - St. Barts Semi-Submersible - "Under The Sea": No matter what your plans are for St. Barts, do not miss a trip below water level!

After boarding, step down into the tunnel-like hull for a seat in front of the underwater windows. If you wish, you may stay outside on the upper deck. As you reach the edge of the harbor you should be able to see some of the many green turtles that have chosen to live in the island's clean little harbor. Shortly thereafter, the vessel passes over the wreck of the 50-foot island freighter "Marignan" that sunk during hurricane "Luis" in 1995. Continue across the Saint Barth Marine Park and marvel at the lively underwater parade in front of you. Here, the sea bottom is full of colorful coral reefs that are gently invaded by troops of "sergeant majors" fish. Following this spectacle, it is time to head back to the pier. You may decide to stay outside on the upper deck from where you can enjoy views of the many beautiful yachts and breathtaking shores of Saint Barts. Join in on this fun and colorful adventure for all ages.
Duration: 1 hour

Day 5 Soper's Hole, Tortola | Norman Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
This marina on Tortola's West End retains its quaint charm while being a center of activity and voted the best marina in the BVIs. Soper's Hole imparts a great sense of place and physical intimacy and is considered one of the most picturesque marinas in the Caribbean. 

Norman Island is located at the southern tip of the British Virgin Islands. It could very well be the very same island reputed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate novel Treasure Island. It is said that the island was named after a pirate who purchased it at some point during the early 18th century. The island is uninhabited and privately owned by Dr Henry Jarecki. Its area is about 600 acres (2.4 km²), and it is about 2.5 miles (4 km) long. A large harbor known as "The Bight" offers one of the most protected anchorages in the area.

Optional Activities: 

Soper's Hole, Tortola – Land Rover Adventure: This land adventure is a fun and exciting drive in a land rover safari jeep, on and off-road, virgin trails, and some regular island roads. Enjoy wonderful vistas of Tortola and the surrounding islands from viewpoints not accessed by the general public. Departing the tender dock at Soper's Hole Marina, the land rover convoy quickly drives along the shoreline before ascending up to the Ridge Road. The route takes participants on a fun adventure, revealing the natural beauty of the island and the unspoiled scenery, flora, and fauna. Stops are made for taking pictures before traveling through the wooded Belmont Estate where a stop is made at a secluded beach for a refreshing local drink. Rinse the "dust of the trail" off with a swim in the sea, or relax on the white-sand beach before continuing back to the yacht.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Soper's Hole, Tortola – Virgin Canopy Adventure: High in the hills overlooking road town lays a “shangri-la” of lush vegetation, tropical birds, and flowers and the newest attraction on the island of Tortola – the original virgin canopy experience. Similar to a zip-line, but much safer and quieter, the original canopy tour provides you with all the thrills and adrenaline you are looking for but is also an ecotour and fun for all members of the family. Even experienced zip-line riders find this tour something that can't be missed. After this adventure, take in the million dollar view, purchase refreshments or snacks,or just relax.
Duration: 3 hours

Soper's Hole, Tortola – Radical Rides: For those of you looking for something completely different, come join us on the BVI’s latest fun activity. Pilot your own two-man rigid inflatable boat (RIB) in a guided adventure around the bays and islands of the Sir Francis Drake Waterway. On arrival at the Tender dock your guide(s) welcome you and give you instruction on the safety and operation of the boats. Now the fun begins with two participants in each boat as your guide leads you around the bays and waters in a thrilling ride across the azure Caribbean Sea. Stops are made for swimming and snorkeling.
Duration: 3 hours

Day 6 North Sound, Virgin Gorda

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Nearly every publication written about Virgin Gorda emphasizes the need to visit “The Baths” – don’t miss it!  The ship generally arrives early and anchors off Spanish Town to give you an early start to view the baths before all of the tourists arrive from the neighboring Islands. 

Optional Activities: 

North Sound, Virgin Gorda – The Baths: This is the "Must-see & Do" land adventure on Virgin Gorda, if not in the entire British Virgin Islands. Open-air safari wagons take you on a short twenty-minute ride through the village of Spanish Town to discover The Baths, an intriguing group of sea caves and unusual rock formations, spectacularly set on an amazing beach. From the parking area follow the winding footpath down to the beach to explore this geological wonder. Wade knee-deep through the sea caves formed by mammoth boulders and bask in the shafts of sunlight pouring through the natural ceiling into the pools below. Learn about the boulders' origins and the many curious names given to the rock formations. Swim, relax, and enjoy the ambiance of this piece of paradise. Then, retrace your footprints in the sand and ascend the path for a refreshing fruit punch before departing via the safari wagons for a scenic island drive over Gorda Peak, with stunning views to the north side, where a tender awaits to transfer you back to the ship.
Duration: 4 hours

Day 7 White Bay, Jost van Dyke

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Jost van Dyke is the BVI’s barefoot island. Its population depends on the month – typically 250-300. Enjoy Champagne and Caviar in the surf followed by an amazing BBQ Luncheon.

Snorkel equipment is provided as well as some water toys!

Optional Activities:
