Blue Moon is a 2011 Lagoon 560 crewed sailing catamaran offering fun vacations in the Caribbean for up to 6 guests.
The yacht is spacious and comfortable and with upgraded carbon fiber rigging has tremendous performance sailing capabilities.
Catamaran Blue Moon has a large yacht feel yet you still get an intimate sailing experience. With three large guest staterooms, seating area on the foredeck, roomy cockpit and a fly bridge unlike any other catamaran, guest will come aboard Blue Moon and never want to leave!
The fly bridge is a great place to lay back and watch your crew sail you through the BVI's or get involved and help them out. You can also choose to lounge in the trampolines and cool off with the splashing of the waves or feel the breeze on your face sitting in the foredeck seating area. Your professional crew will be around shortly to bring you a pillow to cushion your head and a cold beverage to quench your thirst!
The crew aboard Blue Moon will design and recommend an itinerary to meet the needs of their guests. There are no set times for anything and we are happy to travel at the pace of our guests. The goal of the week is to relax and have fun! Your crew are one of the top professional crews in the yachting industry, so grasp each moment with both hands and savor these special times.
Itinerary is subject to changed based on pick up/drop off locations, weather, and of course, guest requests!
Sample 7 night itinerary for the British Virgin Islands
You may board your yacht at 12 Noon from Hodges Creek Marina in East End Tortola. Upon boarding you can enjoy a tropical cocktail prepared by your Captain. The Captain will then show you to your cabin while the first mate prepares a delightful lunch. After lunch, we will depart Hodges Creek and set sail for Cooper Island. Anchored in the calm waters of Cooper Island you can spend the afternoon swimming, snorkeling around Cistern Point, laying on the beach or trying out the many watersports toys we have aboard Blue Moon. Hors d'oeuvres are served round 5 pm, the chef will bring out snacks and your favorite happy hour cocktail for all to enjoy. Take in your first gorgeous sunset while relaxing on the fly bridge. After sunset, dinner is served in the main cockpit area under the stars for everyone to enjoy your first tropical calm evening in Paradise.
After a good morning breakfast, a morning sail can take you to the Baths on Virgin Gorda. This takes roughly an hour and a half to sail and is most picturesque. Upon arrival at the Baths, you will see the most spectacular rock formations from the Batholithic period. Your Captain will take you ashore and give you a guided tour, full of history and interesting facts about the area. Only flip flops and a swimsuit are needed for this adventure! After your walk through the Bath the first mate will meet you on the beach in Devils Bay with cold drinks and your snorkel equipment. You can snorkel in and out of the giant boulders and then head back to your luxurious yacht Blue Moon for a refreshing lunch! After Lunch, we will set sail for Long Bay on Virgin Gorda where we will anchor for the night. Happy Hour cocktails and appetizers will be served at 5 o'clock. The view at sunset from Long Bay Virgin Gorda simply cannot be beaten. It is a view 25 miles down to St Thomas where the sun sets, surrounding you on the horizon are a multitude of tropical islands in the sun. Every night at sunset is dead calm here, so enjoy Happy hour with treats and cocktails and let your mind escape into paradise. It is here on a full moon that you can see each grain of sand on the seabed 15 feet below. Dinner is served in the cockpit after which the crew will turn out the lights and everyone will head up to the trampoline for some of the most spectacular star gazing you will ever see.
You will wake up in Long Bay Virgin Gorda where we will spend the morning enjoying the crystal clear water and the 1 mile long foot-print free beach. There are no palm trees at this anchorage but collecting sea shells on the beach or snorkeling is divine. For those who are keen, the Captain will take you for a snorkel to the 'Jacuzzi,' an underwater swim through which leads you into a pool enclosed by a circular rock wall! Blue Moon will then set sail for the Bitter End Yacht club in the North Sound on Virgin Gorda. Lunch will be served upon arrival after which you will have time to go ashore and explore. We will then go for a short ride around to Eustachia Sound where we will anchor on a barrier reef with the Atlantic Ocean being the only thing in sight. Here you can go for a snorkel at one of the most fascinating spots in the BVI. The barrier reef stands up from 5 feet to 40 feet, this is where you'll see those rainbow colored fish and all the colored sponges and corals. Very few guests get to do this so make sure you are one of those few. Then, it's time to relax in the seating area on the bow looking out to the Atlantic Ocean sipping a Pina Colada reminiscing about the adventures of the day. You will enjoy a wonderful dinner prepared by your lovely first mate and with your eyes barely open, wonder off to bed for a good night's sleep.
After breakfast we will set sail for The Dogs. For those who wish to go scuba diving your crew will arrange a rendezvous dive here. The snorkeling around the Dogs is some of the best in the BVI. The hard and soft corals are a plenty, keep an eye out for lobsters, eels and even nurse sharks. Lunch will be served aboard Blue Moon after which we will set sail again for Marina Cay for the evening. Marina Cay (Republic of Jose Cuervo) is one of the smallest of the Virgin Islands and my favorite Caribbean island. Marina Cay has a lovely beach restaurant under the coconut palms where you can relax and enjoy
