Our itinerary's are custom built around what our guests tell us they want to see and do here in the Virgin islands. This is just an example of what you can expect when you go on a sailing adventure on Hakuna Matata.
Have a delicious breakfast aboard and then we set sail and head for Henley Cay. The snorkeling is shallow water …typical of most of St John's snorkeling destinations. Much of the reef is in 3′ to 15′ of water – providing excellent visibility. Heading along the beach toward Caneel you'll see plenty of sea fans, brain corals and colorful reef fish. Just past a short concrete and stone jetty, as you near a rocky outcropping, the number and variety of corals and fish will rapidly increase. The health of the reef here is stunning. Everywhere you look Atlantic Blue Tangs, Surgeonfish, parrotfish, Angelfish and wrasses swim! And beneath you is a “forest” of rhythmically waving sea fans, gorgonians and soft corals. After our snorkel, we have a little snack and then set sail for Jost Van Dyke. A light lunch on the boat and then we head ashore to check in with customs, then we head over to Foxy's bar and see if we can find the man himself. Maybe we can get him to sing a song for us! We can stay here or if you would like, we head over to White bay to the infamous Soggy Dollar bar for painkillers on a beautiful white sand beach. Back to the boat for happy hour and dinner.
Another delicious breakfast aboard, then set sail for Sandy Cay, a small uninhabited island situated between Jost Van Dyke and Tortola. Sandy Cay boasts a beautiful beach and a short hiking trail that is maintained by park services. When we leave Sandy Cay, we can head to Cane Garden Bay on Tortola, where we will spend the night. Cane Garden Bay is the ultimate Caribbean beach. It has everything - swaying palm trees, a perfect sweep of fine white sand and turquoise blue waters that lap the shore. Tortola's most famous beach is popular with visitors who like to be at the center of it all - as the beach also plays host to an array of restaurants, water sports companies, shops and bars. Happy hour at Quito's then back to the boat for dinner.
After breakfast we have a leisurely sail back to St. Thomas, with a stop at Whistling Cay for another beautiful snorkel.
If you have more time, we can continue on this path around the British Virgin islands all the way up to Virgin Gorda. There we can see my favorite place, The Baths!
