Virgin Islands History tours have just announced dates for two exclusive six night charters of the British Virgin Islands which will take place from July 14 – 29 and December 8 – 14, 2013, costing £2,500 per person.
During the tours guests will have a chance to visit old fortifications, sugar mills, great houses, a copper mine and dive a shipwreck, along with enjoying exquisite food.
Guests will sail on board the impressive Cuan Law charter boat in a double or twin cabin and visit sites such as Norman Island and the Sir Francis Drake Channel, as well as learning about some of the native trees and plants. There will also be chance to snorkel around the caves that inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write Treasure Island and sail around a group of islands known as The Indians.
Guests will also stop at Peter Island for a night where they will enjoy a delicious dinner, followed by a presentation and a visit to Salt Island and Lee Bay. Certified divers will then have a chance to be given a guided tour of the RMS Rhone wreck site, whilst other guests can take a snorkelling tour of the stern section of the wreck.
The Cuan Law will later move to Virgin Gorda island and anchor, whilst guests receive a presentation on the history of the island that was once home to a number of famous buccaneers. There will also be chance to visit an old copper mine and sugar works, as well as a tour of the world famous Baths, a geological anomaly which still baffles scientists today. The tour finishes up in Tortola where guests will visit a museum and an old rum distillery.
The price includes six nights accommodation in two person cabins, three meals per day and snacks, plus all hot and cold drinks including alcoholic drinks and wine with dinner. All guided tours and hikes, optional evening presentations, transportation and entry fee to all of sites visited is also included. Visit Virgin Island History Tours for more information.
