The British Virgin Islands are a storybook paradise made real – but there’s more to them than their looks, as you’ll find out on this eight-day sailing trip that brings you into contact with local island life. Your first stop is at Virgin Gorda, where you’ll disembark in Spanish Town and swim between dramatic granite boulders at the Baths. Next, it’s on to the far-flung Anegada island, where blonde beaches and a legendary lobster dinner await. Guana Island is next, for crystal-clear snorkelling, followed by a hop to Tortola’s Cane Garden Bay as we seek out live music. The final two days crams in a soak in the natural jacuzzis of Jost Van Dyke, a visit to Norman Island – the inspiration behind Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island – and stops at Peter Island’s Deadman’s Bay and the palm tree-fringed beaches of Cooper Island. All of our trips are flightless in destination, with 100% of all carbon emissions offset. It's just part of how we see the world while being good to it.
You’d be hard-pressed to spot the difference between these two luxury catamarans – both come equipped with sumptuous interiors, with lashings of chrome and honeyed wood. Each has a covered dining area seating up to 12, a sundeck for basking beneath those blue Caribbean skies, and deliciously cool air conditioning in the spacious double cabins.
