Often noted as the sailing capital of the world, the waters of the British Virgin Islands offer the exhilaration of sailing in the many regattas that take place year round, though there is much more to do above and below the ocean’s surface.

Sailing trips

Sailing trips

Sailing trips to one of the many unspoiled and little visited islands offer a true sense of exploration. Boats/yachts set sail for Norman Island and explore what is thought to be the inspiration for the famed Robert Louis Stevenson novel, Treasure Island. For new sailors the resort offers hobie cat sail boats to learn the art of sailing within the calm confines of the bay.

Scuba diving and instruction

Scuba diving and instruction

With a natural abundance of coral reefs and underwater wreck sites in the waters of Virgin Gorda, it is only natural that Dive BVI, one of the premier dive companies in the region, offers scuba diving tours and beginner instruction right from the resort’s own beach and watersports center. Tours explore unique wrecks such as the Rhone shipwreck, and the Chikuzen, a sunken airplane covered with colorful coral and home to vibrant sea life. Dive excursions depart from Rosewood Little Dix Bay’s dock regularly making underwater exploration conveniently accessible.

Guests staying in the British Virgin Islands have access to a natural wealth of local islands. Yacht charters are available to explore nearby islands like the coral atoll of Anegada where guests might catch the deliciously famed Spiny Lobsters for dinner. Other well-known yachting destinations include Sandy Cay for snorkeling and its natural botanical gardens. For a true sense of island life guests may go “island hopping” to Jost Van Dyke, popular for its many bars and restaurants including the aptly named Soggy Dollar Bar where patrons have been known to swim to the bar and pay for their drinks with wet money.

Fishing charters

The waters of the British Virgin Islands are rich with game fish.

Fishing charters like Big Ting fishing offer fully equipped boats and crews for half and full day fishing excursions.
