Languid and serene. Thrilling and decadent. The BVIs splay out as an archipelago of nearly sixty islands, with only three true tourist destinations. This is an idyllic oasis wrapped in secluded sandy beaches and dotted with emerald lagoons.
You know the dream: a day spent sailing, snorkeling, and sun-bathing brings on a reverie of relaxation that always ends too abruptly. It's time to let that fantasy play out on this true blue sailing adventure.
Amidst the tropical fish and technicolor coral, keep an eye out for sunken pirate's booty throughout the craggy cliffs and undersea caves that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
A natural playground of granite boulders and underwater arches, The Baths is a famed snorkel site ripe for a game of hide-and-seek with the colorful sea creatures that call it home.
Caribbean blue waters, lazy days, and a salty ocean breeze are key to unlocking the ultimate island experience. Max out on all three when you unfurl the sails on your sea-bound journey.
There's plenty to appreciate on land, but the real showstoppers are beneath the waves. There, brightly hued coral reefs teeming with exotic fish parade the real colors of the tropics.
Surfers will be stoked. Seafood lovers, satisfied. Sun-seekers, recharged. There's no better place to settle into island style than Tortola. Follow up an AM surf sesh with a fresh piña colada and a nap on one of its many pristine beaches.
Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that few spots afford.
This trip is inspired by ZOZI Guru Jimmy Spithill. From renowned adventurers to celebrity chefs, the ZOZI Guru team consists of some of the world’s most accomplished professionals.
Titles come easily to Jimmy Spithill. Currently the ORACLE sailing team skipper, he's been named Australian Male Yachtsman of the Year twice, won his first America's Cup in 2010, and has racked up countless other awards. But perhaps Jimmy's most impressive achievement is leading the ORACLE team to victory in the 2013 America's Cup - a feat renowned as one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.
