From St Thomas, sail around the clear waters and hop in for a swim around Buck Island, Capella Island, and Hassel Island- which is a beautiful National Park. It’s fun to experience your own special place- find your own private space on Saba Island, Hans Lollik, Shark Island, Thatch Cay, Turtledove Cay, Cas Cay, or Inner and Outer Brass. Or, sail to Great Saint James and Little Saint James...there are so many sweet spots to explore!
After leaving St Thomas, cruise the Island of St John, the tiniest of the 3 main USVI islands, which has approximately 60% of the land protected within the Virgin Islands National Park. While chartering, pop into Cruz Bay for some great shopping and an evening out at one of their lively restaurants.
Dotted around St John are little cays such as Steven Cay, Cinnamon Cay, Congo Cay, Grass Cay, and Lovango Cay. A few other favourites are Carvel Rock, Mingo Cay, Waterlemon Cay, Whistling Cay, Henley Cay, and Ramgoat Cay- again, so many to experience!
Leduck Island is in the gorgeous waters of Coral Bay and is part of the Virgin Islands National Park. With beautiful reefs the snorkeling and diving are superb- there is an abundance of colourful fish and marine life. Enjoy the day at this stunning uninhabited island and get into nature.

Truck Bay Beach with its soft white sands makes for an incredibly relaxing day. A little ways off the beach is Trunk Cay- here you will find excellent snorkeling and remember tolook out for Leatherback turtles. All of these tiny islands are excellent cruising grounds for a getaway and play...and honeymoon couples are certain to find a private little cove to escape.
St Croix, with its lush rainforest dropping to the white sand beaches is an absolute dream. Visit the lovely towns of Christiansted and Frederiksted. Then, take an adventure… from its beginnings in 1760, the Cruzan Rum Distillery has mastered the art of rum- a tour and tasting at this iconic landmark is essential to the proper island experience!
Exploring off the coast of St Croix you will fall in love with Buck Island Reef National Monument, the Green Cay National Wildlife Refuge, Protestant Cay, and Ruth Island. Many of the all-inclusive, crewed yachts offer diving- there is nothing like coming out of your cabin onto the deck and into the water. Perfect among these cayes to go explore the underwater wonders of the Caribbean!

What are the best times to travel to the US Virgin Islands?
The best time to visit the U.S. Virgin Islands is from December to April, since it is the least hot period of the year and outside of the hurricane period; in particular, January, February and March are the driest months. December can still be a rainy month, especially on the southern island of Saint Croix. In April, there is a certain increase in temperature, and during some years, also in the intensity of thunderstorms, but overall, it's still an acceptable month, and in many cases, it is good. In summer, June and July are generally not as rainy as August and September, and have also a lower risk of tropical storms and hurricanes, which, as mentioned, are most likely between August and October, that is, when the sea is warmer and has more energy to provide.
What to pack on your Yachting Vacations in the US Virgin Islands?
From December to April: pack light clothes, and possibly a scarf for the breeze and a sweatshirt for the evening.
From May to November: pack lightweight clothing, and possibly a light sweatshirt and a light raincoat for thunderstorms; a sweatshirt and a pashmina for airconditioned places.
