Beauty and Adventure await in Nature's Little Secret, the British Virgin Islands!
Updated: Oct 22, 2022
Captain Joe and Chef Mandy have spent over 10-years exploring the British Virgin Islands and look forward to showing you to some our favorite destinations! This itinerary is just a sample of the many islands, cays, and bays, we may visit during your week on board Kuma Too.
Pick up at Village Cay Marina, Tortola. Settle into a secluded bay on Peter Island for an afternoon snorkel then float in the Caribbean Sea with the iconic Painkiller cocktail. On board Chef Mandy grills locally-caught Mahi-Mahi rubbed with fresh herbs for a sunset dinner celebrating your first night in paradise.
When conditions are right, Captain Joe leads the group on a snorkeling excursion of the R.M.S Rhone wreck. Sunk in 1867, the 310-foot steam ship is one of the most prominent Caribbean dive sites.
Hoist the sail for an invigorating jaunt to Virgin Gorda. Visiting the most popular tourist attraction in the British Virgin Islands, our guests are whisked away in the open-air taxi to The Baths on Virgin Gorda. The group of giant granite boulders, with natural tide pools, tunnels, arches, and white sandy beaches, are an adult (and kid) jungle-gym!
Guests are then treated to an island tour ending at Leverick Bay where they can choose to spend the evening ashore at the fun-loving island resort of Saba Rock or vintage Caribbean Bitter End Yacht Club, or transition across the North Sound to the secluded Prickly Pear anchorage.
Taking the wind on a beam, Kuma Too reaches toward Anegada. The most remote island of the BVI and known for lobster, Anegada features some of the greatest Virgin Islands snorkeling! The best way to discover this island is with Kelly's Land & Sea Tours. The evening is then spent ashore devouring freshly-caught Anegada lobster at Potter's By The Sea.
Kuma Too glides with the easterly tradewinds south back towards the east side of Virgin Gorda. Swim into the secluded Pond Bay beach for an afternoon basking in the sun.
Settling into the rolling seas, Kuma Too sails downwind to Great Camanoe.
Spending the night in a secluded cove offers an incredible snorkel location and a romantic evening aboard. Guests are wowed by the dense vibrant coral-reef surrounding the rugged coastline with exotic birds and intriguing rock formations.
Cruise over to Little Jost Van Dyke to experience the wildlife around the Bubbly Pool and beachfront B-Line Bar with the quintessential island-vibe for lunch.
Anchored in Cane Garden Bay for the evening, the water toys come alive, as Captain Joe tows the guests two by two around the bay on Kuma Too's inflatable tube. One of the best sunsets spots in the Virgin Islands, Cane Garden Bay offers a quiet night on board or an impressive restaurant scene.
Wake up and prepare to let loose at the world-famous Soggy Dollar Bar in White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. Stand in front of the live-webcam and wave to friends back on the mainland with a painkiller in hand.
After dinner on board, head into Foxy's for live music and dancing. Looking out towards Tortola from the dinghy dock, the bay illuminates with dozens of mast lights like stars against a black sky and gives a truly awe-inspiring feeling.
The next morning, we visit one of the top underwater sites, the Indians. Snorkel with vibrant fish, rainbow coral, friendly turtles, and through rugged rock formations before anchoring for the night at Privateer Bay. Norman Island offers a quiet evening on board or live music at the waterfront restaurant, The Bight, and is considered to be the inspiration for the pirate novel Treasure Island.
Enjoy a swim, snorkel the Caves, or hike to a stunning viewpoint before heading back to Village Cay Marina on Tortola.
