Description of Virgin Islands vegan cruise holiday

Come aboard a world class and certified green sailing vessel for seven days and, powered only by the sun and wind, explore the beautiful US and British Virgin Islands. Your home is the private yacht Bel Ami, which accommodates just one couple in their very own private floating hotel room! This is a unique, all-inclusive cruise serving only vegan food, perfect for romantic couples.

Wake up in the morning and jump into your own private swimming area off the transom of Bel Ami. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the cockpit, sail to the next beautiful location, sunbathe on deck and listen to the sails flap softly as Bel Ami glides through the deep blue waters. Each night, you can go ashore for a sunset libation or remain in the cockpit for happy hour, a swim, snorkelling, or doing absolutely nothing... All while enjoying healthy, delicious, planet-saving low fat plant based nutrition.

The cruise’s highlights include Jost Van Dyke island, home of the Soggy Dollar Bar and Foxy’s (the world’s second most popular New Years destination); Norman Island and the famous Willy-T floating restaurant and bar; snorkelling the Indians and the Caves; Virgin Gorda island and the Baths beach area; the Bitter End in the North Sound and snorkelling at Anegada.

You’ll be in the capable hands of Captain Dave Goodman. He has been sailing around the Virgin Islands since 1977. He began sailing on Long Island Sound as a teenager, raced Hobie Cats on the Great Lakes and has sailed in the Pacific Northwest and the Med. Captain Dave has also sailed extensively through the Bahamas and east Caribbean, from Bimini to Grenada. Also on board is Bobbie Rae Goodman, ready as your host with a warm welcome.

Bel Ami is a world class cruising sailboat, designed with electronic sail controls and modern navigational equipment. Bel Ami is a no-smoking vessel, with all the comforts of home, including air conditioning, full galley, music and TV system and lots of great vegan food and drink to enjoy throughout your holiday.

Environment

Fresh water is a precious commodity, and especially so in the Virgin Islands, which is a semi-desert environment. We savor every drop of water that we have, and practice water conservation in all our activities. Showering is done with special hand held shower heads that allow use of only what is needed. Dishwashing is done using basins to conserve water. Toilets are flushed with salt water only. Our vessel is equipped with a state of the art water maker that has the capability of using wind and solar energy to power the water maker. Use of solar and wind energy are renewable energy sources that reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. Our commitment to saving the planet is manifested in all that we do. Traveling around the islands using the wind energy for our sails is quiet, clean, economical, and fun. Living and traveling on a sailboat is one of the most environmental sustaining efforts that can be done This is what we do.

Community

Traveling amongst the Virgin Islands, we have the greatest respect for our West Indian brothers and sisters, whose ancestors were first brought here from Africa in the slave trade. These are now their islands, and we are grateful. We support local craft makers and artisans, and guests are encouraged to buy local products and attend local festivals. Captain Dave is a founding member of the Virgin Islands Philharmonic Orchestra (first clarinet). Simple things, such as saying "good day" when boarding one of the many safari transportation buses, assures a warm local response. Attending to local dress codes is emphasized, particularly when walking through a village or township. Referring guests to needed services provided by our local brothers and sisters, whether for diving, shopping, or health and wellness issues, is fundamental to our operation. Taking guests to such places as the Jost Van Dyke Preservation Society gives guests the opportunity to experience community projects and contribute if they like.
