With so many amazing places to see across 60 beautiful islands, it’s difficult to suggest one itinerary.

As we plan with you, we will create your itinerary to be full of the adventures and excursions you are looking to enjoy.
Locations and Activities to Consider
Day 1 – After a warm welcome by our MarineMax professionals, get acquainted with your yacht and from our base, head to Salt Island and snorkel or dive the famous wreck of the “Rhone.” Then head over to Cooper Island, where you can enjoy dinner ashore or BBQ under the stars aboard your yacht.
Day 2 – Relax on a leisurely day trip to Virgin Gorda, where the main attractions are the famed rock formations at The Baths on the southwestern tip of the island. Explore the crystalline waters around The Bath’s enormous granite boulders, keeping in mind the best time to have this spectacle to yourself is in the morning. If you have time, now is a good time to shop at Spanish Town, followed by a stop at The Dogs for a snorkel. Head over to the still waters of Gorda Sound and pick up a mooring ball for the night.
Day 3 – Like always, you have options here — get an early start and cruise to the island of Anegada or you can also hang out in Virgin Gorda where you can grab a massage, or go windsurfing, snorkeling and kayaking at the beautiful North Sound. In Anegada, take an open cab to Loblolly Bay for an afternoon snorkel and walk one of the best beaches in the world or snorkel one of the world’s largest coral reefs. Remember to book your lobster dinner ashore before heading over to Loblolly Bay.
Day 4 – Today you have even more choices! You can cruise to Trellis Bay — a bustling little community on the beach, just beside the airport on Beef Island. Trellis is a great spot for people watching, windsurfing, shopping for unique gifts, or just chilling out. Another choice is the very tranquil anchorage of Marina Cay, which lies across the channel to the North, off Great Camanoe, which features a Pussers Rum that’s fantastic for happy hour and casual dining.
Day 5 – Cruise down to Jost Van Dyke. On your way, stop for some of the best snorkeling spots in the BVIs; namely, Monkey Point on Guana Island. Or you can elect to cruise towards Sandy Spit, an uninhabited islet measuring less than half an acre and one of the most photographed islands in the world. After all that fun, head in early to Jost Van Dyke or Little Jost Van Dyke. Both locations feature excellent anchorages, beautiful beaches, snorkeling and hiking. They’re also home to the famous Soggy Dollar and Foxy’s establishments.
Day 6 – After a fun night, make your way to Sopers Hole on the West End of Tortola. You’ll love this picturesque and friendly location with a variety of shopping. Enjoy lunch at Pusser’s Landing restaurant. After lunch, depart for the Bight at Norman Island. Snorkel the caves or Treasure Point, believed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island.” Make sure you visit the Willy T floating bar and restaurant.
Day 7 – Take an early morning swim or go for one last snorkel at the Indians. This unique rock formation looms out of the water from a depth of approximately 10 to 50 feet. You’ll be greeted by a spectacular variety of corals and reef fish. Then head back to the MarineMax base for a noon departure.
Looking for an alternative itinerary? You can simply hang out at only a few anchorages while reconnecting with family and friends aboard your yacht while enjoying some of the most spectacular beaches and water in the world. Remember it’s your vacation and YOU are in control of the pace!
