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.
A stunning island situated in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda and got its name because of the large flowering cactus all over the island. The island was declared a National Park in 1988 meaning the 180 acres will have no further development, just an island filled with natural beauty. Breathtaking hiking trails start from the main beach Vixen Point, winds around the island filled with salt ponds heading to the north shore which has two other amazing secluded beaches.
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 is known as "The Bight" offers one of the most protected anchorages in the area. Guests will enjoy some great hiking opportunities as well as snorkeling and scuba diving. Another attractive option may be to check out the Willie T that is generally anchored in the harbor or simply have a beverage at the Pirates Bight Bar.
This British Overseas Territory is becoming more popular due to the incredible resort options as well as world-recognized beaches and incredible golf. Swim with dolphins or for the energetic, bike around the island with the Captain or Club Director. Naturally, water sports are available while you are anchored off Sandy Ground.
St. Bart's is perhaps the most treasured destination in the Caribbean! This small island belonging to the French West Indies has so much to offer, including incredible shopping only steps away from the pier, beaches, resorts, restaurants, and activities both day and night. Discover the island from sea or land. Ask one of the officers to take you on a hike or bike ride around the island. Another great activity here is to simply relax and watch all of the incredible yachts arriving and departing
