Itinerary for your Caribbean charter


DAY 1:

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.

DAY 2:

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.

DAY 3:

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 exploration. 

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.

DAY 4:

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. 

Sample his 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.

DAY 5:

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 remember.

DAY 6:

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.

DAY 7:

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 yourself. 

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 magnificent wife.

DAY 8.

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 KOLIBRI.
