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 American Yacht Harbor, St Thomas. Settle into Waterlemon Bay, St. John for an afternoon trek to the Annaberg Sugar Mill Ruins where you may be lucky enough to collect fresh papaya, sugar cane, or steam of oregano from the gardener. On board Chef Mandy prepares many meals with boat-grown herbs that originated from those gardens.
After clearing customs into the British Virgin Islands, let loose at the world-famous Soggy Dollar Bar in White Bay, Jost Van Dyke.
After lunch, we 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.
With a stop at Monkey Point on Guana Island, guests experience exotic birds and intriguing underwater rock formations.
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 choose to partake in the marina festivities or transition across the North Sound to the secluded Prickly Pear anchorage.
Kuma Too glides with the easterly tradewinds southwest towards Cooper Island. Boasting the largest rum selection in the Virgin Islands, Cooper Island Beach Club and Rum Bar is a crowd-pleasing favorite. Playful turtles feed throughout the anchorage and Cistern Point offers classic snorkeling.
OR Alternative Anegada Option
Taking the wind on a beam, Kuma Too reaches toward Anegada. The most remote island of the BVI and known for lobster, Anegada features the greatest Virgin Islands snorkeling! The best way to discover this island is with Kelly's Land & Sea Tours.
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.
Spending the night on Peter Island offers a quiet evening whether dining on board or at the waterfront restaurant. Listen as the goats cackle away on the hillside or slip below the surface to view the colorful sealife.
A morning sail finds Kuma Too at the Caves on Norman Island. Again Captain Joe leads guests on a snorkel tour into the three caves for a unique experience! Norman Island is one of the islands considered to be the inspiration for the pirate novel Treasure Island.
The water day continues as guests snorkel at Water Point before mooring for the evening. Whether looking for a wild night out, casual yet elegant dining, or a secluded bay, Norman Island provides it all.
Before heading back to U.S. Waters, we visit one of the top underwater sites, the Indians. Snorkel with vibrant fish, rainbow coral, friendly turtles, and through rugged rock formations.
The numerous deer, donkey, goats, turtles, and friendly shark welcome you, as Kuma Too pulls into Francis or Maho Bay on St. John. Whether looking for various levels of hiking or water activities, guests can choose from a dinghy excursion to Whistling Cay, snorkel reefs teeming with sea life, or hike along Francis or Maria Hope Trails.
Enjoy a leisurely swim or walk before lunch then head back to American Yacht Harbor on St. Thomas.
