The Delta Voyage is a 21-day voyage where you visit the best of the BVI plus the exotic and culturally diverse Leeward Islands. Interested in longer sails? Naviagting the vastness of open waters? Cruising will have you feeling like a true sailor--and an intrepid explorer!
“Blue-water” cruising is how sailors describe longer voyages. The first seven days of Delta are in the BVI, honing your sailing skills and preparing for an overnight sail to the Leewards. Living on a yacht and navigating long distances will give you and your crew a taste of freedom and sense of triumph. Our sailing curriculum and optional ASA certification courses offer just the right challenges for beginners and experienced sailors alike.
For the next 10 days we’ll explore the Leeward Islands: majestic Saba with a challenging hike into the clouds and a fabulous marine park to explore; beautiful St. Kitts hosts the Brimstone Hill Fortress, and companion island Nevis boasts sandy palm-fringed beaches. These are amazing islands and the local people love sharing their culture.
We promote ecosystem conservation through Community Service and our marine biology seminars help you appreciate all you see. You’ll enjoy crystal blue water at some of the best dive sites. If you’ve never tried scuba, our Discover Scuba course is the place to start. If you’re already Open Water certified, you can do recreational diving. Plus there’s kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboarding, wakeboarding and tubing, guaranteed to raise the bar of excitement.
You’ll head back to the BVI on another overnight passage under a warm blanket of stars, feeling like a seasoned sailor and veteran explorer.
