Sailing The Virgin Islands On The Heavenly Days

Heavenly_Days_1The Heavenly Days, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort’s 53’ catamaran, is one of the best sailing excursions in the Virgin Islands. Whether you are looking for a full day sail to beautiful St. John, a half-day sail to Buck Island, or a sunset sail into the harbor of Charlotte Amalie, they’ve got you covered! 

The Heavenly Days has won several awards on St. Thomas, including the ‘Best Excursion of the Year’, and well as ‘Best Crew’, ensuring that you won’t be disappointed! They offer exceptional service with their dedicated and attentive crew, extremely knowledgeable captains, and the convenience of operating through one of the best resorts on St. Thomas, Bolongo Bay.

The full day sail is a great way to experience sailing in the Virgin Islands! Leaving from Bolongo Bay, you will spend approximately an hour and a half sailing through some of the most beautiful waters, around the shores of St. Thomas and St. John, ending up at Honeymoon Beach. This pristine, white-sand beach also has breathtakingly turquoise water and vivid snorkeling. Spend the day relaxing onboard the Heavenly Days, swimming and snorkeling, or playing on the beach! Complete with full lunch buffet and open bar, this is the ultimate Caribbean experience!

The half-day sail to Buck Island has quickly become their most popular trip, likely due to its official title – “Swim with the Turtles”. The Heavenly Days boards all the passengers from Bolongo’s dock, and sails a short distance to Turtle Cove, Buck Island. From here, the crew leads guests on a snorkel tour of the area, pointing out their favorite tropical fish and sea creatures, and of course – the turtles! The grassy sea floor in much of this area makes it a hot spot for turtles of all sizes; we are almost 100% confident everyone will leave having spotted at least one!

The sunset sail is perfect for couples who’d like to spend a romantic few hours at sea, families with kids young and old… and everyone in between! There’s no swimming on this trip, but you will be too distracted by the stunning views and endless rum punch to notice! The crew will give you a brief overview of the sites, historical buildings, and history of the area, while you sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunset on the way back to Bolongo Bay.

Whether you’d like to join one of these award-winning sailing excursions, charter your own private sail, or even get married onboard, be sure to plan for a heavenly day! Contact the tour desk for more information!
