United States Virgin Islands
The USVI, located in the Leeward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, consists of three main islands: St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix. Additionally, there are 50 surrounding smaller islands and cays. The US purchased these islands from Denmark in 1917 during World War I. Each breathtaking island is surrounded by crystal clear blue waters.
St. Thomas is known as the gateway isle of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. With its beautiful beaches and amazing snorkeling spots within the crystal blue water, every bay you visit on charter is heaven on earth. Megan's Bay Beach, Sapphire Beach, Lindquist Beach, and Coki Beach are just a few of the beaches to visit. For the nature enthusiast, Coral World Ocean Park and Buck Island National Wildlife Refuge are must visit spots. Additionally, sea turtles are in abundance at Buck Island!
Water Island is the smallest island in the USVI chain. Most have never heard of Water Island, which makes it a great secret for you to discover! The island is small, with less than 500 acres, with a volcanic origin. Just south of St. Thomas, it is a short boat trip over to Dinghy's Beach Bar and Grill on the beautiful Honeymoon Beach for a great stop on charter.
St. John, nicknamed Love City, is the smallest of the main islands but definitely is not smallest in activities! Since 1956, about 60% of the island is protected as Virgin Island National Park, which helps keep St. John beautiful and pristine. There are so many white sandy beaches to visit and snorkel, you might need to book another charter to see and visit it all! The water at each bay and beach is filled with wildlife and coral which makes for amazing snorkels, so make sure to bring your underwater camera with you. The west end of the island is the busiest, with Great Cruz Bay and Little Cruz Bay. The north side has so many beautiful beaches and bays, you'll have a hard time choosing between them all. Trunk Bay, Honeymoon Beach, Cinnamon Bay, Caneel Bay, Maho-Bay, Francis Bay, Hawksnest Beach, Denis Bay, Jumble Bay, and Leinster/Watermelon Bay. On the south side, there are three great bays to choose from: Lameshur Bay, Great Lameshur Bay, and Salt Pond Bay. Last, but not least, there is Brown Bay, located on the east end of the island. You can't go wrong with St. John!
British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands consists of 4 larger islands, Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke, as well as 32 smaller islands and islets of which twenty are uninhabited. The smaller islands include Salt, Peter, Great Tobago, Cooper, Norman, Guana, Beef, Great Thatch, Little Thatch, and Marina Cay. Most of the islands/islets are located on either sides of the Sir Francis Drake Channel, which makes island hopping easy and fun.
Each of the islands has something different to offer on charter. On Jost Van Dyke, you have The Soggy Dollar Bar, among others in White Bay. In Great Harbour, you have the famous Foxy's barbecue and more. On Norman Island, you also have the famous (or should we say infamous) Willy T floating bar and grill, The Bight and the so cool Treasure Point. Northeast of Norman Island are The Indians, which are an extremely popular stop for snorkeling and diving, especially with the shipwreck of the RMS Rhone close by to dive. The Baths on Virgin Gorda should be the eighth wonder of the world. On the northern end of Virgin Gorda is the Bitter End Yacht Club and Saba Rock; two great charter stops. Anegada, the only completely flat island, is about a 4-5 hour sail form the northern tip of Virgin Gorda. Make sure you rent a safari truck or scooters to explore the island and visit Cow Wreck Bar, Loblolly Bay, and so much more! On your sail back, make sure to stop back at Marina Cay.
There is so much to see and do in the British Virgin Islands; there is no way to list them all! The crew on your charter boat will lead you in the direction to make the most of your dream charter vacation.
