Share Article

Explore the beautiful British Virgin Islands with the resort’s exclusive Island Cruise and Admiral’s Yacht-Villa packages.

Whether aboard a luxurious 45-foot catamaran with a captain and chef or a fully-provisioned spacious Moorings 332, two new packages offer unique ways to experience Bitter End Yacht Club. Guests can see and do it all with the ultimate Island Cruise and Admiral’s Yacht-Villa packages allowing discerning travelers to explore Bitter End and all of its breathtaking surroundings in the British Virgin Islands as it was meant to be, at their leisure.

The Island Cruise package allows guests to sample simple luxury at its best with a vacation experience like no other. Those looking for something unique for a secluded honeymoon, romantic rendezvous or a special vacation for the entire family will be delighted as they spend a minimum of five balmy nights at the resort while taking advantage of all of the amenities and activities of a Bitter End shoreside vacation. Once the appetite for land has been fulfilled, guests can take off on their own adventure for three nights or more aboard the exquisite 45-foot catamaran Leopard, Jet Stream.

Upon boarding Jet Stream, guests will be greeted by their expert captain Tim Schaaf and first mate and chef Marsha McCoskrie. A former Stanford Men’s Golf Coach, Schaaf managed Marina Cabo San Lucas for four and a half years and has also worked as a charter skipper and sailing instructor teaching sailing on the challenging San Francisco Bay. Schaaf would be delighted to show guests how to sail the big catamaran. McCoskrie, a formally trained and certified chef who loves to experiment, is just waiting to whip up exotic Asian, Italian, Middle Eastern and Vegan dishes with a Traditional American flare.

“We are really excited to show Bitter End guests that the BVI can be as much fun to experience from a luxury yacht as from an elegant and action-packed resort. We look forward to hosting guests aboard Jet Stream who want to add that extra touch to their vacation,” said Tim Schaaf, Jet Stream’s captain.

The luxurious Jet Stream is fully equipped with a 9KW generator, air conditioning, all required navigational electronic equipment and a water maker. Those looking for a bit of action while out on the Caribbean waters can also enjoy toys that include a Delta Blaster or Banana Boat, two kayaks, and ship board toys include a CD player and TV with DVD and VCR.

If travelers are looking to linger a while longer in the tropical paradise of the British Virgin Islands on their own, then the 10-night Yacht-Villa Admiral’s Package is the perfect choice. The package features a Moorings 332 as the live-aboard yacht, the most spacious pleasure craft in its size class on the market today.

Provisioning is included while cruising and all of the amenities and activities of the resort are available when docked or moored at Bitter End.

Guests can expect only the best while vacationing aboard the stylish and deluxe Moorings 332, including increased headroom (based on the 322), shower space, and an electrical anchor lift to make it the perfect charter yacht for any couple or young family. Whether guests start or finish their vacation aboard this stylish yacht or bookend the cruising nights with nights ashore, they won’t be disappointed.
