GaySail Exclusive Catamaran Cruise Virgin Islands

Description

Location may not be everything but in the British Virgin Islands it’s what makes cruising so pleasurable. With its stretch of islands in the northeastern part of the Caribbean you can expect beautiful blue waters flowing into shaded caves and onto soft-sand beaches. And whether you like to take the helm of one or our catamarans or just relaxing on the sundeck, you will find there is nothing quite like island hopping from the deck of our great luxury catamarans! See link for our movie trailer.

We offer a one week GaySail Exclusive Cruise on an air conditioned catamaran, 10 gay guys all together! This week is a regular clothes optional week. It is including the service of a gay skipper and a gay cook/co-skipper, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, harbor fees, taxes, gasoline and end cleaning. Not included: Dinner, alcoholic drinks, and mooring fees. All cabins are for two persons, some with double bed, some with split double bed, two singles can sleep here as well (see layout at the bottom of this page). You can also book on line a cheaper 1-person crew cabin, these are the small cabins in the front, only accessible from the deck (see layout at the bottom of this pagemiddle picture). 

 

Schedule

Day 1. Maya Cove, East End Tortola. Boarding for our guests starts at 5.30 pm. The captain will welcome you with a welcome drink and show you your cabin. At night we will have dinner in town.

Day 2: Road Town to Cooper Island – 6.5 nm. It’s just a short sail across the well-protected Sir Francis Drake Channel to Cooper Island. Salt Island lies due west and has good day moorings, where we tie up to do some swimming and snorkeling and have lunch before heading to Cooper Island to pick up a mooring for the night in Manchioneel Bay. We will take the dinghy ashore to enjoy the beach or relax aboard and admire views of the islands to the west. Dinner in the beachfront restaurant.

Day 3: The Baths at Virgin Gorda are one of the most famous natural formations in the Caribbean. Huge granite boulders form small grottos and pools on the water's edge for you to explore and snorkel. This week we will stay overnight in Eustatia Sound Bay, Bitter End. The Bitter End has a bit of everything. Take a small dinghy out. You can relax with at the Clubhouse Grille perched right on the sandy beach north of the dinghy dock. There is also the English Pub/market across from the Quarterdeck Marina, a spot for nightly movies and a couple of clothing/gift shops.

Day 4: Today we sail to the picturesque Cane Garden Bay. The Cane Garden Bay is great for swimming, windsurfing, kayaking, or riding horses on the beach. Many residents of Tortola consider the bay one of the prettiest on the island, with its crescent-shaped beach of fine white sand juxtaposed against a lush backdrop of swaying palms. A number of fun nightspots are located right on the beach, or close to it, and dancing, dining, and enjoying great island cuisine are all popular pursuits.

Day 5: There are five anchorages or mooring sites on Jost Van Dyke, each with its own special charm. This week we go to the BVI classic anchorage White Beach ranking right up there with the best of them. Room for a limited number of boats, with limited but charming businesses along the beach. Swim in to the infamous Soggy Dollar or simply swing on the hook and take in the scenery.

Day 6: Soper’s Hole, a picturesque and friendly location to visit on Tortola. Home of Pusser's Landing, reputedly built on the hideout of the pirate Blackbeard. The marina complex offers the best in facilities, shops, dining and services. A perfect, clean anchorage with a great variety of shopping including gourmet provisioning.

 

Day 7: Norman Island, home of the Caves and inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island". The lovely Norman Island and the popular anchorage known as The Bight. It’s home to the caves at Treasure Point, a fascinating location for snorkeling.
