Shiwara sailing boat in the Virgin Islands
|Sailing boat charters are much like staying at an exclusive villa
where you're pampered by a staff that works tirelessly to make sure
you have everything that you want. But unlike a hotel or villa where
you're stuck in the same location for the entire week, your sailing
boat moves to differrent locations daily, on your command, and you'll
experience a new anchorage and perhaps a new island every day.
What will you do for a week in the Caribbean on board your sailing
Just about anything you'd like to do. You'll be asked to fill out
a form in advance of your trip that will let the crew know your
favorite foods and beverages and your favorite
things to do, too. While this will help the Captain to suggest a
plan of action to you when you board your boat, it doesn't limit
you to these activities alone. Just as you don't live in your hotel
room ashore, you don't need to stay on board the boat all of the
time either. Besides the activities included by your boat, which
include swimming, snorkeling, beachcombing, sunning, sipping a cool
drink in the shade of the boat cockpit, spending quality time with
friends and family, reading a good book or listening to your favorite
music and never having to wait in line.
After a hard day's play and a fabulous gourmet caribbean meal
aboard your sailing boat you may be ready for a few after-dinner
cordials and some quiet time together to reminisce or gaze at the
stars, so many more of them visible than back home. Or if you're
still craving action, you can go ashore and enjoy dancing to a driving
Caribbean beat at one of many local establishments throughout the
islands or perhaps live cabaret caribbean entertainment as found
at The Last Resort. Most sailing boat charter clients choose to
eat at least one dinner ashore during the course of the week to
provide the chef with a night off and to sample some of the local
cuisine (though it's not likely to rival the meals you'll be enjoying
aboard your own Private sailing yacht Shiwara.)
With more than 36 islands and cays, a
sailing boat can get you to beautiful white sandy beaches, excellent
restaurants, nightlife and numerous water activities for your sailing
boat vacations. Enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayaking,
daysails, powerboating, sailing, fishing and swimming in the spectacular
waters of the Caribbean.
Visit any of the Caribbean's charming principal islands on your sailing
boat to unwind and absorb the tranquil pleasures of sunshine and spectacular
seas. From the scenic settings and tropical breezes to the local markets
with fresh produce and handmade crafts, visitors, especially on sailing
boats, will experience a friendly and diversified community.
One of the favorite destinations for sailing boats vacationers is
the British Virgin Islands. Fair
winds and temperatures make the BVI's a perfect year round destination
for sailing boat charters. There are many islands within a short sail
for a boat to explore each day.
In Tortola, the main island of the BVI's, you can shop the home-style
stores at Road Town's Main Street and Soper's Hole Marina, West End
for bargains in perfume, jewelery and wine. On Virgin
Gorda, the main shopping is located at Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour,
in The Valley and in North Sound at various resorts. Virgin Gorda,
known for its yacht clubs and quiet cove houses, is an intriguing
grouping of huge granite rocks framing grottos filled with sea water.
Swimmers and snorkelers refresh themselves in the cool waters of hidden
pools and secret passages.
Each destination you visit on your sailing boat charters is sure to
tempt you with every sort of regional and international cuisine. Look
for the Caribbean-style restaurants, former forts and sugar mills
for pleasing menus featuring West Indian specialties of fresh lobster,
conch, turtle, spicy goat, and curries of every description.
