Learning Sail Trips Overview

In the British Virgin Islands everyday is a voyage of discovery. We begin every morning with the lesson of the day before we set sail for one of the premier snorkeling destinations. Hands on experience lets you practice the new skills learned. An exploration of unspoiled island, a white sandy beach or the tropical reef and then we are off for our afternoon sail and our evening anchorage. We'll gaze at the glorious sunset from our cockpit while enjoying "Happy Hour". Ashore we will experience delicious island cuisine at a beachside restaurant. The evening is what you make of it-steel bands to dance to, a card game with a new friend or relax with your favorite book. Tomorrow is another day in paradise.
