These are just a few sample itineraries. The options are endless in the Virgin Islands and the day is up to you. The captain can help with your scheduling but will never make you feel rushed. AVIA Charters wants to deliver your perfect day exactly how you want it! Trips are generally from 8:30 am - 4:00 pm.
The Most of Jost
Experience the "Barefoot Island" and its surrounding cays. Start your day in Great Harbor Jost Van Dyke. This is where your captain will clear customs into the British Virgin Islands. Once there is a stamp in your passport, you are officially allowed to explore. Head over to Corsairs for a Bloody Mary or go to Foxys for a drink. Foxys is home to one of the top New Year's Eve party's in the world. You can still catch Foxy himself there to tell a good joke or just listen to him strum his guitar.
Once you leave Great Harbor, hop on over to Sandy Spit. Sandy Spit is a picturesque chunk of beauty plopped right in the middle of the ocean. So perfect, you may want to film your very own beer commercial here. Just know that you won't be the first. Corona has been using this island for years! From here, you can shoot over to B- Line Beach Bar located on Little Jost Van Dyke. Let Bunky mix you up some refreshing cocktails while working up an appetite playing beach games. There are several close by options for lunch. Foxys Taboo, located just across the bay from B-line, and Sydney's Peace and Love in Little Harbor are a couple of my favorites. After lunch, end your perfect day by sliding into White Bay. White bay is exactly as the name suggests. It's a beautiful white sand beach decorated with beach bars all with their own personality. Start off with a "painkiller" at the world famous Soggy Dollar Bar.
The British Triangle
Much like the Bermuda Triangle, you will totally get lost exploring the beauty of these British Virgin Islands. Don't worry, your captain will get you back to reality in time for dinner. This itinerary has a little something for everyone of all interests and ages. Start your day at West End Tortola. Your captain will clear you in and out of customs here. From Tortola, head over to Norman Island. Norman Island is the Real Treasure Island and offers some of the best snorkeling around including The Indians and The Caves, where people have found real buried treasure! After snorkeling, grab lunch at the world famous Willie T, a rustic floating restaurant or at Pirates Bight, a beautifully reconstructed beach front eatery, situated in the heart of Bight Bay. After lunch, hop to Sandy Spit, the Corona Island for some pics and a quick dip then, complete your day on White Bay Beach to indulge in some liquid libations. Soggy Dollar Bar, Ivan's Stress Free Bar and Seddy's One Love Bar are to name a few.
Beach, Baths and Beyond
A sure bucket list for many people, The baths hold Beauty like no other. Start your day clearing customs in West End, Tortola before headed east up the Sir Francis Drake Channel. The Baths are one of the furthest destinations and travel time can be over an hour and a half. Fortunately, the scenery on the way is breathtaking. Once you get to The Baths, you will swim into the beach and start your journey through the caves and grottoes that await. This place is site of many photo shoots year after year so don't forget your camera. Lunch options depend on how you would like to end your day. If you want to complete your day with a drink at the Soggy Dollar Bar, Marina Cay makes a great lunch spot on the way. Marina Cay is 5 acres of picture perfect paradise. The food is good too! If snorkeling around Norman Island is more on your to-do list, Cooper Island Beach Club is one of the best restaurants around.
Stars And Stripes
No passports, No problem. The waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands have just as much to offer as their British neighbors. Start off your day with some amazing snorkeling. The St John National Park has endless amounts of underwater sights to explore. Watermelon Cay is a for sure favorite. Lavongo Cay, Hawks nest Bay and Trunk Bay are a few more. Or let your captain show you some of his secret spots. There are several options for lunch in and around St John National Park. Head into Cruz Bay St John where you will find a handful of restaurants directly on the beach. Joes Rum Hut is one of my favorites. Another totally cool option is Pizza Pi. Pizza Pi is a sailboat anchored in Christmas Cove. This little sailboat is turning out mouthwatering New York style pies in a tropical bay. Does life get any better? In and around St Thomas also holds many options in which to explore. Check out Hans Lollick, this could be the most beautiful place on earth. It is completely undeveloped and guests usually enjoy this island to themselves. Swimming with turtles at Buck Island is a huge favorite and eating and drinking on Water Island is never dull.
