Catamaran Priorites is based out of Tortola with easy access to the aerial hub of the British Virgin Islands, Beef Island / Tortola International Airport and regular ferries from St. Thomas and St. John. Trellis Bay is a short walk from the airport and to the smooth dinghy ride to the yacht vacation of your dreams. No taxis, no hustle, no bustle. Just settle in a wonderful week on the Caribbean waters aboard Priorities.
We can also pick up groups of 6 passengers or fewer in St Thomas.
A week's vacation on Priorities is a week's vacation with the Caribbean as your playground. Are you a water sports aficionado? Capt. Rick will take you water skiing or tubing behind our 15' dinghy. Take the three sea kayaks and explore which ever charming cove at which we're moored for the day. Snorkel. Go fishing and diving. Sunbathe on the deck with a cocktail in your hand and no worries on your mind.
Let's head over to the Norman Island Caves, where beautiful warm water offers sights of shimmering orange cup coral and schools of yellow tails while snorkeling. A delightful lunch of gourmet sandwiches or maybe a cook-out awaits you mid-day. Not far off, The Indians, a series of tall, jagged rocks, has spectacular snorkeling. After a fun day, go ashore and visit the local hot spots, or relax in your floating resort while you take in the sunset.
The next day brings a nice sail around the southwest end of Tortola and then over to Jost Van Dyke. White Bay has crystal clear water and is great for swimming and snorkeling along the reef's outer edges. Many people come here for the charming, local attractions like The Soggy Dollar. Lunch and cocktails are offered but not a dinghy dock. Don't worry about wet money, the three sea kayaks will get you there dry if you would like. Ride up the white, sandy beach and put a chair at the water's edge and enjoy. Foxy's is just around the corner, another great local hang out. The advanced diver can dive by appointment with a dive company at the Twin Towers, two huge rock formations at the North side of the island.
A day in Tortola offers a glance into the history of the area. Take a tour with George in an open-air taxi to the top of the island. Make sure you ask to stop Bumbas, a local spot with lots of character. Order one of Bumbas' original creations for an afternoon cocktail, but be careful and don't stay all night. There's lots to do! Shopping in Roadtown amongst the locals is definitely a treat with lots of hidden treasures to be found.
Virgin Gorda is also a wonderful island on which to go shopping and dinning then go snorkeling and diving at The Baths. This is a great beginner spot to do both, with lots of rock formations and colorful fish. Sharks and moray eels are a favorite to see. The Bitter End Yacht Club is a famous resort area where you can just hang out or take a windsurfing lesson. Saba Rock is a small island just off the yacht club with a great restaurant over the water and personality to spare.
Marina Cay is a great last day trip. It's located next to Trellis Bay. Enjoy a day of snorkeling or having a cocktail at Pusser's Porch Grill, or relax in the sunshine. Whatever you choose to do, your vacation will be one to remember and you will look forward to the next trip out on Priorities.
The BVI's or as they say, Nature's Little Secrets, offers much to do. Plan to do as much or as little as you wish. If you want to just sail all day, great. Maybe you would like to go ashore and check things out, just let us know and we will make up itinerary for the week or go day-to-day depending on your mood.
