I was looking for some advice for a loose itinerary for our upcoming charter February 17 through the 23rd. We will be leaving out of scrap in returning to scrub Island. Our preference as of now are the following:
Snorkeling: caves, Indians and Monkey Point.

We would also like to hit the following:
Norman Island..Pirates Bight
Baths
Coco Maya...opens at 4pm apparently can dock at VGYH
Foxys
Soggy Dollar
Leverick Bay MWF 5-7 pirates show and/or Friday music
Oil Nut Bay 11:30 to 3:30 for lunch and pool/beach
Anegada

Not sure if this is doable. Would so appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks tons.

KKcopp ... You'll get lots of great suggestions from the TTOL'ers ... tons of experience among the regulars here. You might also find the BVI Mariner web site useful in researching your trip and building a Float Plan ... sample here. Have a wonderful trip!

It helps to know what type and size boat you're on, however I would find this easily doable on my Saba 50 if the winds and north swell were cooperating:

Day 1) Scrub to Baths, then VGYH or mooring outside Spanishtown, then CocoMaya.
Day 2) ONB, then over to Leverick Bay
Day 3 early am start to Anegada
Day 4) early am to Guana Island (Monkey Pt), then to Great Harbour, JVD
Day 5) White Bay, JVD (Soggy Dollar & Hendo's). Might be best to dinghy over and leave boat in Great Harbour depending on conditions.
Day 6) couple hours to the Indians, then to the Caves, then to the Bight (visit Pirates)
Day 7) couple hour upwind motor/sail to Scrub

Day 6 is a very long day. Did you perhaps mean the caves instead of the baths?

The itinerary suggested by BaardJ looks solid. There is obviously some experience there. We have never moored or docked at VGYH, but I have heard mixed opinions. I would love to hear from others who have stayed there after Irma and taxied over to CocoMaya. We typically drive to CocoMaya from Leverick, which I know is farther but not bad. Thank you! Steve

Thanks y'all for all the advice. This will be our first trip on a 48 powecat. In the past we have sailed with a captain.

You should be able to walk to coco maya from vgyh. It’s about 10 minutes. You will need a light, if it’s after sunset as it’s dark on the road.
