To the east of Puerto Rico lie the British Virgin Islands - an archipelago of unique natural beauty at the heart of the Caribbean. Here the sun is always shining and the waters are always warm!
Today a British overseas territory, these beautiful islands have been claimed throughout their history by the Dutch, the Danes, the French, and the British. The capital is Road Town on the main island of Tortola, from where you can go sailing by chartering a yacht in the BVI and set off on a unique sailing adventure. Also worth visiting is the Virgin Gorda island - home to the Baths which is a labyrinth of beachside boulders.
The bulk of the local population lives on the islands of Tortola and Virgin Gorda, while Anegada, Jost Van Dyke, Peter Island, and The Settlement are mostly visited by boating lovers. Cruising through the area you will see multiple islands to discover in this beautiful part of the Caribbean sea: a yacht charter in the British Virgin Islands is a must if you want to call yourself a true sailor.
In the BVI, you will never run out of places to sail to. During your charter experience, you can choose to spend a day or two on each of the four main islands or spend the entirety of your charter on one island exploring it from top to bottom. You could even go on day trips to one of the many 50 smaller islands! The possibilities are truly endless!
The average price for a boat rental in the British Virgin Islands depends on several factors. For example the type, age, and model of the vessel as well as the rental duration. The summer months of June, July, and August tend to be cheaper periods to rent a boat, compared to the BVI's high season from December to March. With Click&Boat's diverse fleet and ranging prices, there's a rental option available for every kind of budget.
When sailing around the British Virgin Islands, you are certain to make more than one stop along the way. To make your multi-destination charter a stress-free success, we highly recommend looking into harbors and marinas in the areas you would like to stop in.
The British Virgin Islands is a haven for tourists - its white sands, clear waters, and incredible weather, it is no surprise that tourism makes up 45% of the British Virgin Islands' national income.
The 'must-visits' in the British Virgin Islands are its white sand beaches, The Baths, and the snorkel spots on its incredible coral reefs. The British Virgin Islands has countless white sand beaches that, along with the incredible weather, make the perfect place to sit back and soak in the sun. Notable beaches are White Bay, Savannah Bay, and Cow Wreck Beach. Cow Wreck Beach is particularly great for families with young children as the waters are only waist-high near the shore. It's also a great place to go on a fishing trip from!
The Baths is a beach area on the island of Virgin Gorda where you can take luxury yachts that formed with the erosion of granite over millions of years that caused boulders to create beautiful, natural tidal pools, tunnels, arches, and scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. The area is a national park and a major tourist attraction.
Every island in the British Virgin Islands is surrounded by coral reefs making the BVI the perfect place to experience sea life.
Click&Boat offers renters the possibility to rent a boat with or without a skipper. Whether you choose to have one on board or not will depend on many different factors.
For those who have a boat license, bareboat rentals are available. However, if you prefer to sit back and relax then choose to rent with a captain. This is also a great option for those who are planning a get-together, celebration, or party on board!

We have plenty of boats to rent in the British Virgin Islands, including sailboats, catamarans, and motorboats: you can choose your favorite one depending on your needs. For a bit more adventure, you can also visit the US Virgin Islands nearby. Charlotte-Amelie is the capital of this group of islands and is just 12 miles from Jost Van Dyke. You might also want to discover Anguilla, another British overseas territory nearby. With boats in other parts of the Caribbean, you can explore islands like the Windward Islands and Trinidad and Tobago too.
The best time to visit the British Virgin Islands varies. The area's busiest time of year is the winter but September to November can be a great time to visit to avoid the busier season and make the most of lower prices. Hurricane season is from June to November which is certainly not ideal for sailors. Keen sailors should visit the British Virgin Islands in March when the BVI Spring Regatta is held annually. Divers should also plan their trip for Winter or Spring when underwater visibility levels are the best as the summer is terrible for visibility levels.
