A bareboat charter in the British Virgin Islands (BVIs) is an amazing experience. Not only do you have the romantic, enigmatic and dreamy experience of sailing on the ocean, but you also can explore the islands of the British Virgin Islands, stopping and exploring at your leisure.
With this in mind, what is a bareboat charter in the BVIs?
Bareboat Charter in the British Virgin Islands (BVIs)
Bareboat charters such as those provided by Click&Boat are where you hire a boat and provide all provisions and crew the boat. These are very popular in the BVIs and the Caribbean catamaran charter is very popular as well especially when you consider how beautiful the Caribbean is.
Bareboat charters are often flexible. Some want to charter a boat in the BVI for a day, others longer. Many opt for catamarans as they are highly stable, graceful vessels, and are suitable for exploring, fishing, sunbathing, snorkelling, and family time.
Sailing the BVIs
Sailing around the BVIs is a beautiful experience. The islands are beautiful in of themselves and there are plenty of exciting places to moor up and enjoy the ambience. There are also plenty of coves to explore and if you’ve got kids, this is something they will love to do from now and into adulthood.
Located east of Puerto Rico, the British Virgin Islands have lots of things for you to enjoy. You can:
- Sunbathe – There are plenty of beaches where you can catch the rays. The sand is golden and soft, and if you pick your spot you can find one that is fairly secluded.
- Bath on Virgin Gorda – This geological wonder features boulders and caves that sit on the beach. To enter you walk between a small opening in the rocks. Here you’ll find ropes and ladders to assist you as you explore, and the serene light, the water, and the sand give it an enigmatic feel. Once you reach the end you’ll be treated to the Devil’s Bay, a small and serene beach.
Explore Anegada – Anegada is one of the few islands not formed by a volcanic eruption. Instead, it is a piece of land that sits on a coral reef. It is flat and green and it is easily missed as it blends into the horizon. Nonetheless, it is worth exploring as it features:
- An iguana sanctuary, free to visit
- Cows, there are roughly the same amount of cows as people
- An incredible night sky. There is hardly any light pollution in Anegada so the view of the stars is astonishing!
Tortola – The biggest island in the BVIs and one that you should explore. Many love the street food options but there is more to do here than just eat. Like the rest of the BVIs, it is an experience to savour.
This is just a snapshot of a bareboat charter in the BVIs. Be sure to set sail as soon as you can and experience it all. You won’t regret it.
