Just the name conjures up all kinds of images, reflecting the diversity of cultures and experiences that make up the Virgin Islands. Three different nationalities, numerous variations on language, three common themes: Uncommon natural beauty, open, friendly people, and world class sailing.
It has been said that the Virgin Islands are like cruising with training wheels. And it just might be so. But who cares? When you can get wherever you like in a matter of hours by line-of-sight piloting, powered by great breezes in relatively protected waters, you shouldn’t feel guilty about it. It’s still one heck of an adventure. See for yourself by clicking on the Virgin Islands Cruising Guide chart above, or the items below.
Contrary to popular belief, we’re HUGE fans of printed cruising guides, and consider them essential gear for cruising any coast. Below are the OCG recommended guides for this area. Following the links and purchasing these cruising guides (or anything else) helps fund OCG through a small commission. Thanks!
