Here’s how it works:
Rent a cabin with your own private bathroom, just as you can on a cruise ship. Instead of a thousand new acquaintances, you’ll just have a few new friends. Our professional crew manages the sailing, and a chef prepares your meals from fresh local products. On occasion, our crews even catch fresh Tuna or Mahi-Mahi right from the catamaran! You’ll leave all the frustrating aspects of life behind and adopt a more laid-back pace: one that allows you to you follow the rhythms of the sea and tropical trade winds. The catamaran’s shallow draft allows for entrance to private anchorages and special snorkeling spots that large cruise ships can only dream of sharing with their passengers, making it a sailing adventure you’ll never forget.
Want to explore Tortola and the British Virgin Islands in fully-catered luxury? You’ll find exactly what you’re looking for when you book our Tortola Premium by the cabin charter.
There are options galore on this unique cruise – hiking, safari tours, and plenty of snorkeling and diving. Your premium cabin offers a luxurious retreat to return to after you spend your days exploring.
To start your adventure, fly into Terrance B. Lettsome International Airport and take a short walk or two-minute taxi ride to the Trellis Bay ferry dock where you can catch the regular Scrub Island ferry to our brand new base. The ferry is free of charge for our customers and runs from Trellis Bay between 6:45am to 10:30pm and from Scrub Island between 6:30am and 10:15pm. Customers coming from St. Thomas, Charlotte Amalie, can get the ferry to Tortola and take a 45-minute taxi ride from Road Town Ferry Dock to Trellis Bay to pick up the Scrub Island ferry.
Once you arrive at the base get settled into your private cabin suite. You’ll head over Monkey Point on Guana Island, which is home to dazzlingly diverse aquatic life. Cane Garden Bay is the perfect place to stroll along the shoreline. Sandy Cay is covered in beautiful trails (not to mention its proximity to the famous Soggy Dollar Bar).
All in all, the Tortola Dream Premium cruise is the ultimate treat, and crewed, catered, fully-planned sailing provides a view of the BVI you won’t want to miss.
