7 DAY ITINERARY
FOR YOUR CARIBBEAN CHARTER CRUISE
Arrive by air plane at Beef Island Tortola British Virgin Islands
where your captain is waiting for you in his white uniform. Within
10 minutes of meet your captain you can be onboard KOLIBRI enjoying
tropical drinks prepared by a master lady cocktail queen Susanne
Fredrick. All charters begin at 12 noon and you have normally
arrived at 1 pm so a light lunch is prepared for your group while
you settle into your new luxury catamaran.
Welcome onboard Kolibri
Once you are settled
Captain Nigel motors slowly round to one of the worlds most
magnificent islands, "Marina Cay." Marina Cay (Republic
of Jose Cuervo) for the evening, one of the smallest of the Virgin
Islands. Your first night is enjoyed at this tropical
paradise where mermaids and dolphins play.
White beach coconut
palms, a restaurant right on the beach and this small private
island has it's own private coral reef right round the whole
island. Snorkeling is awesome, then cool off on the trampoline and
enjoy your first happy hour at sun set. You are in paradise.
A morning sail can take you to the Dog Islands
for some colorful coral dives or you can visit the Baths on Virgin
Gorda. These spectacular rock formations below and above water can
be explored by land or sea and snorkeling here is a
must. Lunch is just outside Spanish Town, so you can
shop or take a taxi for an Island tour. Then a fast
sail up the west side of Virgin Gorda one of the most beautiful of
the Virgin Islands. In the evening, dance at the Bitter End
Yacht Club to the local reggae band in the elegant settings that
this resort offers. Dinner is enjoyed onboard Kolibri.
Spend the morning enjoying the North Sound
- truly one of the most outstanding natural harbors in the
Caribbean. Enjoy good windsurfing, snorkeling, hiking and shopping
here. Visit the four exclusive resorts and take on some shore duty.
Or, sail to Anegada, the sunken land nestling within a
horseshoe reef, the third largest barrier reef in the world. For
the first half of this 2/3 hour sail there is no land visible, then
the palm tree’s appear on the horizon warning of your imminent
arrival. After lunch absorb the atmosphere of the anchorage at
Pomato Point. Informality and relaxation are the key elements of
Anegada. Deserted beaches, fringing reefs and the unique flora and
forna of the salt ponds, home to the 21 pink flamingos, await your
Lobster dinner at the
Pomato beach resort with Wilfred is a must. We have seen the famous
"green flash" five times at this location. The green flash is
when the weather is perfect and the yellow sun sets at the horizon, the
color of the sun changes to green from the blue of the Caribbean sea.
Watch carefully just before she sets. As darkness falls, with cocktail
in hand, you see from the cockpit of the boat the driftwood fires on the
beach grilling your lobster. The open air restaurant in and around the
beach promises a dining experience only Anegada can offer. Wilfred's
Pomato point restaurant simply can not be manufactured any where else in
the world. This is why you come to paradise.
A leisurely downwind sail to Jost Van Dyke
offers ample opportunity for fishing on the way. Sandy Spit and Green Cay are all places of exceptional beauty. Just take your
pick. For the over night stop, White Bay is secluded and quiet with
only the Soggy Dollar Bar ashore or Great Harbor is ideal for those
who would like to visit the famous Foxy’s Tamarind Bar.
Sly fox or Dread fox both made from Foxy’s firewater rum and listen
to his calypso songs. Beware you will possibly be in one of his
Caribbean songs! Pick your picture perfect evening stop, happy hour
and dinner are served onboard Kolibri.
After breakfast explore Sandy Cay the uninhabited
tropical island the view from above the coconut palms is magnificent.
After a early lunch set sail for Norman Island (Treasure Island) about
2 and a half hours sail. Snorkel at the caves and be amazed at how
many fish there are in the crystal clear waters. The evening is spent
in the Bight, with a possible visit to The William Thornton for an after dinner
party - a wild floating bar where everybody lets their hair down and
tells their sea-faring tales of the day.............and how fast did
you sail? But it is the pirates 3 caves which is the vivid picture you
After breakfast you can hike to the top of Spy
Glass hill, a known look-out point for the pirates, be sure to take
your camera. Dive or snorkel the Indians or Rainbow Canyon and swim
with the sea turtles. After lunch you head straight for Cooper Island
and the Cooper Island beach bar. Relax for happy hour dripping from
your snorkel round the boat. After dinner go forward to the trampoline
and count the shooting stars, making a wish on each one you see.
After breakfast snorkel at the pinnacle at Cooper
Island, this is a lovely snorkel as is the point of the western tip of
Cooper island. Before lunch set sail for Cam Bay at Great Camino, this
is a wonderful lunch-time stop at a little bay where you are all by
Cam Bay also has it's own little barrier reef so enjoy a
snorkel there before motoring round to Trellis Bay in preparation for
the next days flight home.
Tears of disappointment run down you face
for not booking another 4 days in paradise. At this time it is
impossible not to have made best friends with captain Nigel and his
At Trellis Bay your last snorkel deep into the late
morning before your flight home. Paradise remembers you just as you
remember her. Thank you for enjoying the classy luxury catamaran
