We are very excited to launch our new website! After many months work, lots of new photos and (of course!) a few delays, we finally went live last week!
Here are just a few of the highlights to look out for; UPDATED FAQs and Equipment list NEW Sailing Itineraries IMPROVED Layout and Navigation
If you are visiting the BVI in the next few weeks, be sure to look (and listen) out for Whales! The BVI is part of the annual migration route for Humpback Whales- they are most commonly sighted along the North shore of Tortola and around Anegada!
Tortola Pier Park
Just recently opened the Tortola Pier Park, based near the cruise ship pier in Road Town, is packed with a great selection of new shops, bars and restaurants. If you have some time on Tortola, its just a 20 minute walk from our marina!

Conch’s Fab Spot of the Month!
Located in the North Sound, Saba Rock is only a small rocky island but it is one not to be missed!
The main restaurant serves a great mix from pastas and salads to ribs and fish dishes, you are sure to find something to tempt you! The marina has 10 slips, with water and power available. There is also a great gift shop and small aquarium pool home to an array of marine life, including lobsters, a giant green moray eel and one the two signalling cannons from the RMS Rhone!
Fancy a night off the boat? Saba Rock has 8 rooms available, all of which are individually named with their own distinct style!
Our favourite spot– the comfy lounge chairs located round the back of Saba Rock overlooking the Eustatia Sound! It makes the perfect retreat for later in the afternoon to relax and read a book! Be sure to try a happy hour painkiller and enjoy watching the Tarpon feeding at 5pm!
Can you name BOTH islands in the BVI that are owned by Sir Richard Branson?
Hint: They are both close by each other, North of Virgin Gorda
