Dreaming of a Warm Winter

With winter temperatures averaging a low of 70 and high of 83 degrees, and the tradewinds just about perfect, there’s no better place to spend warm winter time than in the British Virgin Islands. So keep those bathing suits and flip flops out - no need to pack them away this year.

Lighted Boat Parade

One of the most beloved BVI holiday traditions is the the family friendly festivities at the Bitter End Yacht Club. The evening begins with Santa and his merry elves aboard Ponce de Leon leading the Annual Lighted Boat Parade with prizes for well-lit and creatively-decorated boats. Participants bring their favorite holiday decorations to get in on the fun! As the Bitter End Yacht Club is currently rebuilding this season, we'll be watching closely to see if they will hosting their parade this year.

  • Holiday Dining

    To celebrate this wonderful time of the year, Foxy's prepares a Christmas Eve Dinner and a traditional Christmas Day Menu with live entertainment, holiday music, and plenty of dancing. There’s no snow, just sand between your toes as you gaze up at the North Star and look for Santa speeding on his way to all on Jost Van Dyke.

    Dining aboard your power catamaran with all the traditional fixings can be as merry as you want it to be. With spacious salons, galleys and oversized flybridges outfitted with wetbars and electric grills, the convenience of preparing your holiday dinner is only outdone by the incredible views at whichever anchorage you chose.

    Holiday dining can be reserved at most restaurants throughout the islands. Ask us for information on your favorite spot including the popular Scrub Island.



    Spend the holiday playing in the warm water rather than in the snow. Fishing, diving, sailing and snorkeling excursions make great stocking stuffers for those who like to adventure their way around the BVI. You can make plans to dive the Wreck of the Rhone, snorkel The Caves at Norman Island, or relax at a secluded beach in Anegada. Our staff can help arrange all of the details for you according to your group's desired activity level. Request your charter quote today to get started.
