Want the best Family Vacation everrrr?

Happy families are all alike. Tolstoy was right. One thing they invest in is time spent together, relaxing and learning. A family sailing vacation in the Virgin Islands is a brilliant way to do this. We have prepared three different ways you can sail with your family.

Instructors

Instructors

We pull from a network of over 300 skippers from The Yacht Week and only select the best in terms of sailing competency, teaching ability and soft skills. We love our instructors and think you will too.

Location

The British Virgin Islands are legendary for their consistent "Goldilocks" breeze - perfect conditions for sailing. Combine that with some of the top beaches in the world (according to TripAdvisor), and crystal clear waters to make for an incredible spot to learn how to sail.

Network

Your Sailing Virgins experience shouldn’t end once your course is over. With a network of several hundred like-minded, adventurous young professionals, we have a network you can tap into for your next sail or bareboat charter adventure. (Ask about our sponsored alumni cruises)

Our Style

Our instruction is chilled. We don’t shout. We allow our students to learn by doing and by making mistakes. We’re also not afraid to have fun at the same time with frequent trips ashore to the many great restaurants and nightlife in the BVI.

For a one week family vacation you want to make it count. We have three packages that cater to most adventurous families. Ranging from "toe-in-the-water" three in seven day pass, to the fully catered, fully captained liveaboard sailing experience.

I was a little nervous at how the kids would get on as we've never spent a lot of time on a boat before. But James was great at helping "break us in" gently. We started with a small and simple half day outing. James kept good focus on keeping the kids engaged and having fun. Can we book him for our next family holiday, please?

Not only did James teach us all how to sail in the bluest of seas, the kids swam with fish, explored caves, ran away from hermit crabs, learned how to tie a bowline knot and enjoyed being close to nature. I can’t recommend James and this learning adventure enough.

We can't thank James enough. A perfect balance of relaxation and learning, with some precious family time. The kids were enthralled by every activity and came away with new skills
