Shiwara sailing charters and charter vacationsTortola, British Virgin Islands
Tortola, "land of turtle doves' or Chocolate City is the largest British Virgin Island overlooking Sir Francis Drake Channel and situated about 60 miles east of Puerto Rico. The most popular point of entry for charters is the East End Beef Island Airport linked to the capital city of Road Town by the one-lane Queen Elizabeth Bridge.

Road Town's scenic setting and sheltered yacht-filled harbour provide a helpful orientation to the laid-back Brith Virgin island lifestyle.

This friendly and diversified community tempts travellers with every sort of regional and international cuisine found in a choice of cheerful pastel painted restaurants, former forts, and sugar mills. Palate-pleasing menus feature West Indian specialties of fresh lobster, conch, turtle, spicy goat, and curries of every description. An authentic English pub serves Pusser's Rum, traditional drink of the British Navy for 300 years, as well as a popular fruit flavoured local concoction known as the "Painkiller."

Tortola also offers and ideal jumping off point to the other main island of Virgin Gorda with its famous Baths, magical Anegada, and rustic Jost Van Dyke.

US Virgin Islands
The U.S. purchased the Virgin Islands from Denmark in 1917, and the architecture and Danish flavor still fills the town of Charlotte Amalie. Named for a Danish queen, Charlotte Amalie is the main city on the island of St. Thomas, and is also the capital of the United States Virgin Islands. One of St. Thomas’ claims to fame is the Caribbean’s pre-eminent cruise ship destination, so duty free shopping and exciting excursions abound.
Red Hook & the East End
On the east end of St. Thomas U.S. Virgin Islands there are many large resorts with beaches, some with marinas as well. This is a wonderful area to begin or end your Virgin Island vacations - with a hotel stay before or after your cruise aboard your own luxury sailing yacht charters. Red Hook is the principal town on the east side of the island, and has large dock facilities. It is host to the Virgin Islands sportfishing fleet during the summer, when tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo and the blue marlin are in our waters.
Your Virgin island sailing charter awaits you
St. John is located about 1 mile due east from St. Thomas, and is the U.S. Virgin Island closest to the British Virgin Islands. About 70% of National Park, the donation of this land by the Rockefeller family guaranteed that the beautiful hillsides will stay green instead of being developed, and the coral reefs will be protected from damage not only now, but for generations to come. In the park, Trunk Bay has an underwater snorkeling trail with signs indicating fish, corals and other critters that you might see as you go along both there, and in your other snorkeling adventures on St. John. There are also several other hiking trails ranging from novice to challenging, especially when you factor in the bright Caribbean sun! There are often park activities going on, such as guided hikes, lectures and tours of the archeological sites, or beach nature walks. A schedule is available at the activities center in Cruz Bay. Your virgin island sailing charter yacht will likely stay one night just off one of the beaches in the park, so you can enjoy the variety of activities available in the park.

Cruz Bay Virgin Islands is on the west side of St. John, facing St. Thomas, and is the main city of St. John. St. John boasts a total population of about 5,000, so this means everyone knows everyone else, and friendships are close and lasting there. In fact, the nickname of Cruz Bay is 'Love City' by its friendly residents. Cruz Bay is the point of entry for yachts returning from the British Virgin Islands.
