The British Virgin Islands are a volcanic archipelago in the eastern Caribbean Sea and a territory of Great Britain. British Virgin Island shore excursions offer you the chance to see the island way of life on both big and small islands.
Caribbean shore excursions from a British Virgin Island cruise leave from Road Town, the cruise harbor that is on the largest island of Tortola. Depending on your activity, you’ll depart on a boat or a bus.
The boats may escort you to a number of awe-inspiring locales around the British Virgin Islands. You can board catamaran cruises that feature sunsets and Champagne, or lunch and secluded beach stops. Water-based British Virgin Island shore excursions often include some of the most exciting snorkeling spots in the Caribbean, such as the caves at Norman Island.
One of the most coveted snorkeling and swimming spots you can visit on British Virgin Island cruise excursions are the Baths of Virgin Gorda. Located on the island of Virgin Gorda, these baths are nestled among a series of rocks that you can hike between and snorkel within.
Boats can also whisk you away to lovely Jost Van Dyke, an island that’s just three square miles but packs a lot of beauty within its borders. Popular sights to see among Caribbean cruise passengers include the naturally foaming Bubbly Pool, the pristine beaches along White Bay, and the laidback island ambiance found in the bars and restaurants of Great Harbour, the only village on the island.
Back in Road Town, those who want to find some of the adventure and beauty that abound on Tortola can join one of the British Virgin Island shore excursions that take you into the heart of the island. Depending on the excursion you choose, you’ll soon be ziplining over jungle canopies, touring the island’s countryside and learning about its history, exploring the quaint village and beach of Cane Garden Bay, or getting your camera out and snapping photos at astounding lookout points.
The British Virgin Islands are famous for their seaside beauty, and you’ll be able to enjoy the views along with fun activities whether you’re on the water or on land.
