It’s time to tour. Since the BVIs are a group of islands, in many instances outlying islands or even part of the same island can only be reached by water, whether by sailboat, ferry or launch.
Also, see Jost Van Dyke, the yachties’ barefoot paradise, Peter Island, the resort island, Anegada–the "drowned" island with the Roseate Flamingos, and Guana Island, the private nature resort. Tour Nearby St. John and Navigating through St. John–a good article for cruisers.
