BVI sail with your shadow.tif

January 2-9, 2024

Join us to discover the beauty of the British Virgin Islands!

One of our best yet. Afterguard's destination sail to the stunning crystal-clear waters of the BVI. The timing of this trip ensures perfect weather and bustling seasonal attractions. Families can easily join our flotilla during the first week of January.

Experience the BVI's dry climate and clear Caribbean sea, a snorkeler's paradise with vibrant coral, reef fish, and accessible scuba wrecks. Encounter dolphins, turtles, rays, and much more marine life, creating an underwater 'eye orgasm' of colors and vitality.

Our sail plan includes Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Jost Van Dyke, and Norman (aka Treasure) Island. Optionally, we can sail to Anegada for more sun-soaked adventures.
