Working on building our itinerary— first time in BVI, first time bareboat!

Our group likes it all— snorkeling, beaches, bars, and quiet relaxation—- so any suggestions are appreciated!

Leverick Bay. Reserve a slip, get a prearranged car rental, or safari truck.
Great dinner upstairs.

I would suggest you build a potential itinerary with your group, and then post for comments. I'm sure folks here will be happy to share their advice. I've always found my initial itinerary is always subject to change, often due to the 'whim & fancy' of the crew at any moment, but obviously affected by weather conditions during my charter. Also the word spreads fast as to 'what is open' and 'what music is playing'. Members in your group will have their own personal expectations to add to a draft itinerary you can build on. My additional suggestion would be that you attempt to start your day early, the time will get away from you and the sunset comes early in BVI. By starting early I don't mean rush …. it is 'island time'. Most important, be respectful of the BVI people and be friendly, it will be returned.

There is some solidarity here in the forum that we don't easily give up Nature's Little Secrets. Those would be places where 3 boats at one time is a crowd.

One thing that does happen often with a paid Skipper is an introduction to some " off the beaten path" anchorages: if those introductions to anchorages include some theory and practice in anchoring, well, that just makes the next trip more personal and more enjoyable.

Cow Wreck on Anegada is always tops on our list!

Flash of Beauty on Anegada is good snorkeling (but there may be a strong current and so only for good swimmers). The restaurant is also very friendly.

There are so many, all for different reasons. Here are my favorites and the reason why I love them, in no particular order.

1). Great Harbor, JVD - I just love the main road is dirt and very little traffic. Walking down the road stopping at the different little places talking to the locals, hopefully finding some fresh baked goods.

2). Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada - The beauty, people and food

3). Cane Garden Bay - when there is no cruise ship in, even if there is, just stay on the boat until they have gone back to the ship. We like to go on Friday when Quito is playing and on Sunday when the Elmtones are playing. The Elm has a great BBQ for dinner and the Elmtones.

4). Leverick Bay - We usually stay on the dock, allows everyone to come and go as they please. We rent a safari bus and tour the island, stopping at the Baths, Hog Heaven, Savannah Bay. Then going back to Leverick enjoying the pool and the Restaurant upstairs. Always one of the favorite meals of the trip.

I could go on, but these are a few of my favorites.

Anegada. Life just slows down there. Walkers' shirt says it best:

Nothing to do and all day to do it!

Saba Rock frown and Cooper tie for next.
