Stunning beauty, relaxed sailing and endless activities surround you in the British Virgin Islands. Trust the trade winds to carry you to whatever you’re looking for: crystal clear waters, boulder-formed caves and picture-perfect beaches combine with oceanfront resorts and restaurants to provide sailors with a colorful wealth of welcomes. Easy deep-water island-hops, consistent breezes, line-of-sight navigation in protected waters and numerous anchorages for evenings ashore make this the ideal island paradise for less experienced sailors or those who simply want a more relaxed vacation. Each morning we set sail to an exciting new day sailing to our next destination, an amazing way to experience the beauty of the Caribbean, sun drenched activities, relaxing atmosphere and the history of pirates that roamed these seas long ago.

HUMAN OUTREACH PROJECT
One of World Wide Trekking’s founding principles is giving back to the places we travel. Through our sister non-profit, Human Outreach Project, we are making a difference in lives around the globe, and connecting trekkers with voluntourism opportunities in local communities.
Although we don’t have projects in this part of the world, there are always opportunities to get involved and find a meaningful way to engage with the local community. We would love to talk to you about custom voluntourism and humanitarian opportunities that you can incorporate into your WWTrek trip. The find out more, go to HumanOutreachProject.org or contact us.
