Sail the Caribbean seas on a British Virgin Islands sailing adventure

Life sounds pretty darn good when your day's biggest dilemma is deciding which deserted island to check out next. But this isn’t some strange far-off mirage – the British Virgin Islands happen to be the latest destination in the Intrepid Sailing catalogue. Discover for yourself the world-renowned beauty of this fabulous archipelago on a one-week high sea adventure that will have you snorkelling, hiking and settling into the slow-paced Caribbean way of life. Navigate The Baths of Virgin Gorda, swim among sea turtles in Dead Man's Bay, laze on pure white sands and take in sunsets from any number of atmospheric drinking holes. This week-long Caribbean Sailing adventure really is as idyllic as getaways get.

Settle into this British Virgin Island sailing tour with a snorkel around The Caves. Dive through caverns and grottoes to spot octopuses, stingrays and maybe even a pod of dolphins! Afterwards, jump ship to The Willy-T, where the Caribbean rum flows fast and the reggae jams pump through the night.
It’s time to set sail! Snorkel in Dead Man's Bay and swim with the sea turtles. Then head to Salt Island in search of the HMS Rhone, the most perfectly preserved shipwreck in the Caribbean. Anchor at Cooper Island and sip rum punch at the Cooper Island Beach Club among the fragrant frangipanis.
Named ‘The Fat Virgin’ due to its undulating, curvaceous rock formations, The Baths are a top tourist destination on British Virgin Islands sailing trips. Situated 2 km off the coast, explore the dark caverns and rocky boulders of this peculiar geological creation. Richard Branson thought it was so awesome he bought his own island right off the Gorda.
Another day, another island paradise. Spend a day marooned on a deserted island, snorkelling in lush marine seabeds or just soaking up the surroundings of this popular pirate hangout.
Hike into the sunset or reacquaint yourself with a beach hammock, this is the place for some serious R&R. To sum it up, “Live de life, drink de beer!” says Foxy, owner of the most famous restaurant (and unofficial party king) of Jost Van Dyke.
Blackbeard found it first, but celebrities and tourists alike have been flocking to this band of islands like pirates to treasure. There is more great snorkelling and beach lounging to be had before an afternoon sail to Soper’s Hole in Tortola. If the time is right, party full-moon style and, with a little liquid courage in tow, master the rhythm of reggae.
Return to the charter base at Tortola, where this fun-filled, sun-blessed adventure on the high seas draws to an end.
