La Boheme Charters offers half day, full day, and sunset charters. The Gulfstar 60, La Boheme, is located at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour of Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. Contact us at any time to arrange for the day sail of your choice. If you do not have snorkel equipment, we can provide it for you. We also provide beach towels. Just show up with your bathing suits and sun block and you should be all set! La Boheme has an open bar in which you can help yourself. Bottled water, juice, soda, beer, and wine are available. Hors d'oeuvres are served which may consist of Brie en Croute with crackers, conch fritters, and a fruit platter. You can bring a lunch, but it is highly recommended that you dine at one of the many restaurants at the various anchorages. The day sail can be tailored to your liking. You can make arrangements prior to the trip or simply board the boat and let the captain help you decide on a whim.
Half Day Charters
Morning half day charters start at 8:30 and end at 12:30. Afternoon half day charters begin at 1:30 and end at 5:30.
Your group will meet the captain at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour and board La Boheme at approximately 8:30 (or 1:30). The Captain will give you a few ideas for your customized itinerary and then set sail promptly. You may choose to sail to Cooper Island. Once there, your group will most likely climb into the dinghy and head over to Salt Island for a snorkel on the famous Wreck of the Rhone. You may prefer to kayak around the anchorage or simply soak up the sun's rays on a float. The sturdy swim ladder makes it easy to get in and out of the water and dinghy. After that you will head back to the boat for a quick rinse off with the deck shower. Then relax in the cockpit with a refreshingly cool beverage and cheese and crackers. The captain will then pull the anchor and head off for another beautiful sail back to Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda.
Full Day Charters
Your group will board the boat at 9:00 in the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbor. You may choose to sail to the coral island of Anegada. You will arrive at Anegada around 11:00. Everyone will hop into the dinghy and head to shore by the Anegada Reef Hotel. Taxis are available to take you on a tour of the island. You may sit at the Anegada Reef Hotel beach bar to chat for a bit and have lunch, or taxi over to the north side of the island where you can have a delicious meal at the Big Bamboo located at Loblolly Bay. Snorkeling is wonderful there and the view is simply gorgeous! It will draw you back if you are ever given the opportunity another time. While driving back, you may have the chance to catch a glimpse of the flamingos that inhabit the island. They are quite a sight! When back on board, your party will enjoy refreshing drinks along with hors d'oeuvres before another magnificent sail back to Virgin Gorda, where you will arrive at approximately 5 o'clock.
The sunset cruise departs at 4:30. You will experience the most resplendent sunset over Tortola while you gently glide over the Sir Francis Drake Channel. The trade winds will fill the sails and allow you to feel that peaceful connection with the wind and sea. Having a cocktail or two while snacking on conch fritters is really a lovely way to end a day in the British Virgin Islands. The time of the sunset varies depending upon the time of the year. The entire sunset cruise should last about two hours.

Before You Go: British Virgin Islands Travel Guide |
Rising dramatically from the sea, the drowned mountain chain that makes up most of the British Virgin Islands is a boater's paradise. Unlike the neighboring U.S. Virgin Islands, the BVI remains a relatively sleepy Caribbean outpost known mostly to sailors, who cherish its many sheltering bays and harbors, hidden beaches, and laid-back marina bars and restaurants.
British Virgin Islands Attractions
Watersports are the main attraction in the BVI, particularly sailing. Whether you are the captain of a boat or just sailing on one, you'll find endless places to explore among the BVI's 40 islands, from snorkeling or diving reefs and wrecks to secluded beaches reached only by sea. On Tortola, Road Town has museums and shops, and you can climb to the top of 1,780-foot Sage Mountain for sweeping views. Virgin Gorda's old copper mine is a must-see for history buffs.
British Virgin Islands Beaches
The Baths on Virgin Gorda are the sine qua non of BVI beaches; set among huge tumbled boulders and caves, the calm waters are great for wading as well as excellent offshore snorkeling. Anegada, a flat coral atoll barely above sea level, is almost entirely beach, surrounded by the Horseshoe Reef. Smugglers Cove, Apple Bay, Cane Garden Bay, and Long Bay Beach are among the best Tortola beaches; Jost Van Dyke is known for its beach bars.
