UNPARALLELED SAILING EXPERIENCES AROUND THE CARIBBEAN

The Journey

Between the US and British Virgin Islands, there is opportunity for an ever-changing Caribbean experience, even for those who frequent these islands. The Virgin Islands are comprised of over 100 inhabited and uninhabited islands.

By having a crew that knows every corner, from beach bars to deserted islands, you’re sure to have an unforgettable, unique and personalized itinerary – right in your ideal paradise! Here are some of our favorite stops…

The Baths, Virgin Gorda
