Through a demand from our present clients, Marine Events now provides incentive events at various overseas destinations, giving the same attention to detail and quality of service as all our other events.
Events have already taken place in Monaco, Cairn and Antibes, using yachts and powerboats of all descriptions.
The Caribbean has long been the destination of dreams; turquoise waters, white beaches, all year sun, good food and great sailing!
Many years of experience operating yachts from the British Virgin Islands, and a recent “taster” event there, have confirmed that the Virgin Islands are a spectacular destination for corporate incentive travel.
The yachts range from 50 – 120 feet and create luxurious comfortable accommodation. A professional captain and chef provide your food and drink with service second to none, while nature and the warm weather of the tropics do the rest!
The Virgin Island Experience – Suggested Itinerary
Depart Gatwick Airport for the tropical island of Tortola, via the American Virgin Island of St.Thomas. Transfer from the airport to your hotel overlooking the marina, where dinner will be taken in one of the many Caribbean restaurants available and you will be introduced to your captains and chefs.
Following a traditional breakfast served by the pool, you will board your luxury yachts. After a captain’s briefing, your adventure will begin with a leisurely sail to the famous “Baths”, a spectacular rock formation of caves and tunnels, mixed in with palm trees and sandy beaches. Lunch will be served onboard before an afternoon sail to “Gorda Sound”, home to the Bitter End Yacht Club. Cocktails and an evening meal will be served onboard. A trip ashore for a drink at the Bitter End will round off the day.
After Breakfast the yachts will set sail for the sand island of Anegada. At only 30 feet above sea level, this island cannot be seen from the main islands.
A two hour sail brings you to this picture postcard island, sheltered by a huge reef and encircled by white sand and palms, it is a part of paradise still untouched by tourism. After lunch the afternoon is yours to explore, either on the island where all the roads are sand, or in the bay where there is marine life in abundance, and see why lobster is always on the menu here.
The evening meal will be taken ashore at “Wilfred’s”; a restaurant known for it’s lobster, and the only building in sight!!!
After breakfast and a morning swim, the yachts will set sail for the island of Jost Van Dyke. Named after a Dutch pirate, this island is home to the “Soggy Dollar Bar”; so called because, after your short swim ashore from the yacht, drinks are paid for with your soggy Dollars!!! Rest and relaxation are on the itinerary for the afternoon before a 5-minute hop in to the next door bay of Great Harbour. Dinner is served onboard, after which a visit to Foxy’s bar and restaurant is a must.
Brings with it a sail back to the base and a last night in the hotel where you can all discuss the events of the week, with the help of a slide show of your travels.
After breakfast… transfers home!!!
