Six nights aboard a luxury yacht, local captain, transfers, welcome gifts, meals on board your yacht, four hosted parties ashore and two nights at a five star resort.
Our goal is to introduce African Americans and their friends to sailing in the calm, beautiful waters of the British Virgin Islands. No experience necessary! Don't settle for a crowded cruise ship when you can relax on a private yacht and travel at your own pace, pampered all the way, for less! Join us for a fun, worry free vacation.
Imagine you and your friends or family staying on a luxury yacht visitng islands and tropical resorts where each day is tailored to your desires. Each day brings a different view of paradise as you sail on a private yacht to a new and delightful tropical haven.You and your crew will create meals and snacks. Your ocean view table is always the best in the house!
Your choice of activities include:
Rock Climbing at the Baths
Simply relaxing in a Hammock with a cocktail and a good book!
I'm a nice person but I don't have anyone to come with.
That's ok. Most traveling African Americans are vacationing single. We work very hard to get them on the road. Post your need for a roommate in our forum. You will definitely find one. You are not alone. By the way, if you're in the market for a spouse, we've have several couples meet & marry during BBF.
Where the heck are the British Virgin Islands anyway? And how do I get there?
The United States and British Virgin Islands are located 3 hours flying time south of Miami and sixty miles east of Puerto Rico. Our guests come from all over the U.S. We fly to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands then take a ferry from there to Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. BRING YOUR PASSPORT . NO PASSPORT. NO GO!
Why haven't I heard about this vacation before? And what's the down side?
Ok. You're telling me:
· I don't need to know how to sail or swim
· There will be lots of singles there
· There is not much work to do on the yacht
· We have a party every night, and
· People even find life mates!
this is not your typical "Let's go to Las Vegas" or "Mega-cruise ship" vacation. The biggest downside is that you'll get hooked on boats, start taking sailing lessons, buy a boat, put your kids out, sell your house and go cruising.
What about clothes? How much and what?
Keep in mind we spend 99% of our time barefoot in swimwear and shorts so Pack Light! - We're Island Hopping! But you will also need a white outfit for the White Party. Pack it in something watertight.
Can I come early and stay after?
Yes you can. In past years, some have arrived three days early and started their vacation on the beach. We will publish a list of things to do. You can also stay a few days over at the Westin St. John at the end of the trip if you are not ready to go home.
How many are there on each yacht?
You will sail with between eight and ten including the captain and first mate.
Will we be ever be out of sight of land?
Never! The islands are all two or three miles from eachother or less. Check out a map of the Virgin Islands.
How do I know if this vacation is right for me?
Well, call me and I'll tell you its fun for singles, couples, families, kids and even teens who don't like anything. Our most senior person is seventy-six years on the planet. And another one of our guests brought his whole family: mom, dad, wife, two kids (nine and five), his best friend, his wife and a two year old. They all had a great time.
