Power boat La Princesa :

DAY 1.

When you arrive in St. Thomas you are met at the airport by Captain Tony and immediately whisked to your new home charter yacht La Princesa at Yacht Haven Marina in downtown Charlotte Amalie or to Red Hook.  The taxi fare to La Princesa is for the guests account.  Either we have lunch or set off on board "La Princesa"  to the US Virgin Island jewel of St. John’s, Caneel Bay or the famous Hawks nest Bay where we spend the first night.   Snorkel or just relax and savor your sunset happy hour, followed by a quiet dinner on the aft-deck which completes your first half day in paradise.

DAY 2.

Power boat charter yacht “La Princesa” draws anchor after a hearty breakfast and heads for the British Virgin Islands.  Power Yacht Captain Tony clears customs while the ladies do some shopping at the tiny beach shops of the quaint island of Jost van Dyke.   We have lunch on the beach at Jost van Dyke and spend the rest of the day,  at Sandy Key, a picture perfect deserted island about a mile or so from Jost.  This little island is coconut encrusted with thick undergrowth, powder white beach and a pleasure to explore.  Take with you, flip-flops, some bug spray and a hat, this is a "must do"  little walk through the undergrowth.  The path leads to the crest of this island about 50 feet above the water where you can see La Princesa at anchor below.  We idle off to have a sundowner at the “Soggy Dollar Bar” on white Bay and overnight there.

DAY 3.

We  depart early from Jost and round the South West corner of the island of Tortola, perhaps stopping in at picturesque Soper’s hole for some sightseeing (and shopping if you are so inclined), then on to Norman Island (Treasure Island- still uninhabited-from Robert Louis Stevensons famous novel Treasure Island) .  The main aim of this destination is to snorkel at the three famous pirates caves, where real treasure was found.   The real treasure today is under the water at the mouth of all three caves and that is the corals and fish life.  Our over night anchorage is the out of the way anchorage of Beneurs Bay.   Beneurs Bay is the home of the most turtles and pigmy conch.  The sunsets here have a surprise for everyone.  Enjoy another La Princesa happy hour followed by your evening meal by candle light.

DAY 4.

The fourth day will start off by snorkeling at the famous “Indians” off Norman Island.  This is a unique snorkeling spot because the Indians is a pinnacle which crests the water, this means that everyone can slowly snorkel around this whole island where you see the very deep drop-off to 60 feet on the one side and the shallower section on the other side.  For the brave snorkeler there is a hollow cave section where some folk snorkel through.   After lunch we head for  Manchioneel Bay on Cooper Island for exploring and relaxing by the beach.  Lots of coconut palms on the beach and a gorgeous beach bar for those unusual tropical drinks in paradise.

DAY 5.

Power yacht “La Princesa” will take you from Cooper Island to the world famous “Baths” on Virgin Gorda where we will explore the caves and have lunch. After lunch we will travel to Gorda Sound and anchor off the Bitter End Yacht Club for sundowners.  This is really a wonderful place in the sun, try to walk the grounds of the Bitter End Yacht club and imagine that everything you see has been brought there by yacht.  There are no roads to the Bitter End Yacht club, even the whale skeleton on the beach was brought by yacht. 

DAY 6.

On the sixth day, we will leave early and stop off at Marina Cay to snorkel, explore and just relax after an exciting 5 days of new experiences.  Marina Cay is my number one favorite little island it has so much history and is only 100 yards in diameter.  There is a lovely powder white beach with coconut palms, a gorgeous beach bar and four great apartments on the crest of this little island.  Spend the whole day at this jewel of the Caribbean because this island you will see featured in magazines, the movies and other Caribbean advertising.  Enjoy happy hour followed by another glorious meal on board power yacht La Princesa.

DAY 7.

On your last full day we will cross the channel back to St. John’s Island in the US Virgins and spend the afternoon on the beach at Hawks nest Bay.  This is the back drop for countless movies, this anchorage has thick coconut palms with large white beaches and no sign of habitation (well just a little) and it is here where you can enjoy your farewell dinner on board motor yacht “La Princesa”.

DAY 8.

We will make our way slowly back to Charlotte Amalie Harbour on St. Thomas and arrive at midday or the early afternoon.
