Kuralu - Kuralu sails out of Sopers Hole at Tortola's West End to visit Green Cay and Sandy Spit to snorkel the reef and explore the tiny one-acre island. Then with the big colorful spinnaker we sail to beautiful White Bay, Jost Van Dyke.

White Bay has been voted by Conde Nast Traveller as wne of the 10 best beaches in the Caribbean. Fantastic for snorkeling, swimming, a visit to the Soggy Dollar Bar, birthplace of the real painkiller. White Bay is where we stop and enjoy a relaxed lunch, in the shade, onboard Kuralu. A look in at Foxys in the quaint and unspoiled Caribbean settlement of Great Harbour, completes the day.

Kuralu also goes to the Indians and Benures Bay on Norman Island (Treasure Island) for a day of really excellent snorkeling. In the Norman Island, Peter Island area, we have a choice of several super snorkeling spots and destinations. We usually manage about three, selected according to wind and weather. Our last stop is the famous Indians, another excellent snorkeling spot. From there we fly our big coloured spinnaker back to Sopers Hole to complete the day.

The run home by spinnaker is usually fast and exciting. Kuralu can, of course, travel to other nearby destinations by request, and during February and March, we have often spotted whales nearby.

Patouche - We'll sail across the Sir Frances Drakes Channel to the Treasure Caves at Norman Island and enjoy easy snorkeling in the calm and crystal clear waters that surround the island. Since the 1750's, visitors to the island have discovered three separate treasure troves with each yielding substantially different amounts of riches. These bounties undoubtedly inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to immortalize Norman Island as his setting for the epic novel Treasure Island.

Next we'll sail over to nearby �Angel Fish Reef� where the turtle grass is full of large Queen Conch and the sandy bottom between the coral heads hides Southern Sting Rays and Flounders. The coral here is pristine and the perfect habitat for numerous reef fish and a great spot to take underwater photos of the colorful inhabitants like the Blue Parrot Fish, the Green Sea Turtle and the Yellowhead Wrasse.

Enjoy white sandy beaches fringed with palm trees and endless coral reefs full of beautiful tropical fish. The British Virgin Islands are one of the best sailing and cruising areas in the Caribbean.

The wreck of the R.M.S Rhone has become synonymous with the British Virgin Islands' in dive circles, regarded by many as the best wreck dive of the western hemisphere.
