Popular Cruising and Charter Yacht Destinations in the Virgin Islands
We go only to the best places in the Virgin Islands with pristine white sandy beaches and gently swaying palms, crystal clear snorkeling spots in warm turquoise waters, laid-back beach bars and one-of-a-kind hideaways to experience heavenly, local Caribbean cuisine.
If you’re undecided on what kind of trip you want, or if you would like something other than what is listed below, just give us a call at 340-677-1320 and we’ll be glad to create a custom itinerary for an amazing charter cruise experience. Our cell phones are always on so it’s easy to reach us.
While almost every boat going to the BVI will stop in Tortola for customs, this island is straight up neglected by the day boat community. Tortola has the only beaches left in the Virgin Islands where it will be just you on it!
If you desire your own beach, ask the crew of Take It Easy or Take It Easy 2 for the Tortola charter day trip and the island could be yours!
One of the farthest British Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda is home to the world-famous Baths – a series of giant smooth, granite boulders strewn across magnificent white sandy beaches. These boulders lean against each other making cathedral style “rooms” below filled with warm lapping water that surrounds your body and small tunnels to explore. The Baths is truly a unique destination for adventure seekers who enjoy boulder jumping or being off the beaten path.
So, you want to visit stunning white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue waters and have loads of beach bars to choose from? Then, Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgins Islands is the destination for you!
Home to only 280 people and over 30 beach bars, Jost is the ultimate fun in the sun destination.
You will need your passport and go through customs to visit Jost Van Dyke since it is in British territory. We go through customs on a regular basis so contact us if you have any questions.
If you have ventured all the way out to Virgin Gorda, then Cooper Island is a great place for lunch. This tiny island used to be a must stop for pirates and merchants back in the day to get their water and rum barrels repaired. Now it has a great little restaurant and fully-stocked rum bar that serves every rum made in the Caribbean!
Buck Island is home to dozens of green sea turtles which are as close to tame as a wild turtle can get. Swim with the sea turtles and see other amazing marine life. Around the corner is an old navy barge ship wreck in 30′ of water, a snorkeler’s dream. Water Island is the Jost Van Dyke of the USVI with two awesome beach bars on honeymoon beach that serve amazing food and drinks.
Home to a super, upscale resort, Peter Island is a great place to spoil yourself. This resort has a pool bar, upscale gift shop and day spa. Dead Man’s Beach is the only beach in the islands with sugar sand, the softest sand on planet earth!
A tour along the North side of St. John makes for a great start to your day on Take It Easy Custom Charters. As we journey along the coast, we can stop at what’s considered to be some of the best snorkeling on the island such as Waterlemon Cay, Maho Bay or Whistling Key.
The Caribbean is known for its clear waters and beautiful beaches. The snorkeling here is amazing, and Norman Island has two such spots.
The Indians are pinnacle rock formations jutting out of 60 feet deep water. Exposed to the currents, a constant source of food nourishes the coral and sea life making this one of the best snorkel destinations in the BVI.
The Caves are the legendary resting place of buried treasure that was the inspiration for the book Treasure Island. Three caves await to be explored teeming with marine life and mystery.
My friends and I came down to St Thomas to explore and relax for a week. It was recommended that we utilize the Take It Easy for a sunset cruise and we were not disappointed. The captain and crew were amazing and knowledgeable about the islands. The ship was top notch and the views we saw were breathtaking to say the least. This trip was worth every penny and I’ll for sure be back the next time I’m here.

After doing a lot of research, we decided to charter with Take It Easy to take a bachelorette party of 11 girls to the BVI for a day trip, and we were not disappointed! We went all the way to the Baths and then back to Jost Van Dyke, all the while traveling in style. Kevin was our wonderful captain and helped us plan a great trip. And Brooke, our incredible first mate, was the star of the day! She always made sure we had her awesome rum punch in our hands, obliged our excessive picture requests, and even joined us for lunch at Hendo’s. We could not have had a more perfect trip — I could not recommend Take It Easy enough!

“Experience the Virgin Island beauty...”
Experience the Virgin Island beauty you can only see from the water aboard the Take It Easy. Our travel group of 12 adults has spent 3 different vacation days aboard this vessel and they are some of our favorite days while staying on St John. We spent one day with Dana two years ago and loved it so much we opted for two days this year which we spent with with Alex and Brooke. ALL are first class captains, crew and hosts. We love the history and facts they share about the scenery as you weave in and out of the USVI and BVI’s. Whether going to snorkel around St John, bar hoping to Jost Van Dyke or Pirates Bight, having lunch at Willy T or taking in the natural beauty at the Virgin Gorda Baths you will have a day to remember. Don’t forget your passport if going to the BVI’s! You won’t regret your decision to spend your day aboard the Take It Easy.

The captain and first mate (Dana and Brooke) of Take It Easy are amazing and took excellent care of us for my 40th birthday celebration. We toured the islands, snorkeled, explored caverns, and grabbed a drink at the Soggy Dollar. The boat was beautiful. They had everything we needed for a magical day. I can't wait to do it again!

"Great Day in the BVI"
The best day of our vacation -- Dana is a great captain. Brooke is a very attentive first mate. Together we planned a great day of snorkeling at the Indians, lunch at the Bight, and, of course, painkillers at The Soggy Dollar. Take It Easy is fast, comfortable, clean and well provisioned for fun day. It's great for a few couples or a family. We highly recommend spending a day with Dana and Take It Easy during your Caribbean holiday.

"First time to "Take it easy " in St.Thomas"
Thank you for such a great day experiencing so many things we couldn't have with staying on the island. We had options and never felt rushed. Great Captain and Alesha was the best! Thanks for a great day on the "Take it easy" private tour.

We went our for a day on 12/23 and covered as much ground as we could with a 3, 5 and 7 year old. The boat is extremely well taken care of and Dana created a great day for us that was suitable for the kids. We had a fantastic time and will definitely go out with Dana again when we visit St Thomas next.

"Take It Easy-- My FAVORITE boat charter!"
I love Take it Easy! I have been on multiple boat trips with Captain Dany and the Take it Easy Crew to the USVI and BVI. Born and raised on St. Thomas, Captain Dana has great advice on what to do in the BVI, whether it is the best spots to snorkel, float, party, or eat, Captain Dana has always helped me customize my boat trip to perfection! An added plus is that unlike many other private boat charters, Take it Easy and Take it Easy 2 comfortably fit 12 adults and provide plenty of shade for when you are out on the water all day. I highly recommend this boat charter, Take it Easy will not disappoint!

"Consistently the Best Charter in the BVI or USVI!"
“I can't say enough good things about the captain, crew and boats in the Take It Easy family. I've booked multiple trips with Captain Dana, from local day trips with friends to couples only overnight trips to the BVI, and every time I am blown away by the experience. First mates Kahlia and Alesha know these waters like the back of their hands, and they'll make you feel at home right away. Without a doubt, you'll always remember a trip with this fantastic charter, and will probably be back for more!”

"4 Adults, 5 Kids are Still Talking about Take It Easy a Week Later!!!"
“We were fortunate to have Captain Dana's dad and Kahlia on our trip. You book this company because they know how to avoid the cruise ship crowd and they are all locals. Kahlia snorkeled with the kids and pointed out marine life they would have missed. It was a really great day and made our family want to come back and spend more time with the Take It Easy family-owned business. They do as they say and will provide a trip that makes memories for a long time. What more could you ask for in a private charter?”
