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.
The snorkelling is top-notch in the British Virgin Islands. Explore a world of sparkling blue waters, coral reefs and sea grass beds, looking out for barracuda, minnows and other exotic tropical fish
Whether it's strolling through mangrove forest to find a bubbling natural jacuzzi, or hard-core trekking to the island's highest point, Jost Van Dyke is a hiker's dream, with scenic walks for all skill levels
Spend time at the number-one drawcard of the British Virgin Islands – The Baths, a magnificent geological oddity that doubles as a super-sweet swimming spot
With plenty of leisure time, you can while away the hours sipping cocktails in a beach hammock, or simply marvel at the splendour of the blue-sky Carribean from the deck of your yacht
The beauty of sailing is that each day is unique and, while we have a destination to reach, if the weather changes or something takes the group’s fancy, we can be flexible on the day's itinerary
As the majority of this trip takes place on a sailing boat, you’ll need to feel comfortable with moving about the vessel, including the use of stairs. With that said, sea legs come naturally to some but not so much for others. Your friendly crew will be able to help with the effects of sea sickness if needed.
A zodiac is used to transport passengers from the boat to the mainland, with landings taking place at piers (dry landings) as well as on beaches (wet landings). Zodiacs can sometimes be awkward to climb in and out of, but a sense of humour and can-do attitude is all you need.
This is an adventure on board a real yacht, which means living spaces, cabins, bathrooms and showers need to be shared with other passengers. Sleeping quarters can be quite compact, but you will be spending the majority of your time above board in the open air.
Time on the water also means time in the sun. Remember to pack sun protection, such as sun screen and a hat, and drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. See ‘Essential Trip Information’ below for a full packing list.
Please note that smooth sailing is dependent on the weather, so itinerary changes may occur at the last minute if the weather becomes unfavourable. If any changes are made, you can trust in your knowledgeable skipper to choose an alternative route or activity.
Due to the size of the yachts, sound carries easily from one side to the other and can wake your fellow travellers. If you’re planning to have a late night, it’s a good idea to head into town and experience the local night life.

Sailing in the British Virgin Islands was a great way to spend my Spring Break. It was a relaxing, sun-filled time full of sailing, snorkelling, and seafood. We saw sea turtles, stingrays, many different types of fish, pink flamingos, and swam through so many different coral reefs that we started to loose track of where we were and what day it was. This was a great trip, and it was a shame it had to end.
