Sailing/Boating

The BVI is often referred to as the “Sailing Capital of the World.”  Look no further than the local economy as yacht chartering companies help comprise a major pillar of the gross domestic product.  A natural monopoly of nearby islands, steady trade winds, small tidal changes, and highly navigable waters are partially responsible for this claim.   Add to that the beautiful attributes of the various sailing destinations which often include empty white sandy beaches, clear turquoise snorkeling and diving, and verdant green islands, many of which are uninhabited and it is easy to see why the BVI has become such a mecca for sailing and boating enthusiasts.  There are a number of options for sailing and boating excursions including sunset sails, overnight charters, learning to captain your own yacht, dive trips and adventure tours to allow you and your family to explore these unique locations which otherwise are often only seen in postcards.
