Charter the SPANISH Virgin Islands with ELIZA

SAIL TO NEW PLACES - The Spanish Virgin Islands - A Wonderful Cruise on the Ocean 80, charter yacht Eliza.

Visit the unspoiled beauty of Vieques, Culebra and Culebrita.  These three islands are a within easy sailing distance of Puerto Rico, but offer uncrowded anchorages beautiful beaches with great snorkeling fun sight seeing and extremely friendly inhabitants.

Meet Eliza in Fajardo which is close to the Conquistador Casino, and only a one hour drive from the San Juan Airport.  Sail to Cuelebra and see its sights and quaint town.  Sample the deserted beaches and snorkeling.

Sail to Culebrita (little Culebra) and anchor near the half-moon pristine beach.  Climb to the site of the oldest operating light house in the Caribbean.  Swim in the "Jacuzzi" a series of large boulders and pools washed by the seas.

Next stop is Vieques, the largest of the islands, which at one time was used by the US Navy for aircraft target and bombing practice. Here you will find wonderful snorkeling with occasional eerie views of ordinance under water.  Take a guided kayak tour of Mosquito Bay, reputedly the home of the brightest collection of luminescent organisms in the world; after sunset marvel at the light in the water and make "snow angels"  while swimming in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea.

The last stop on your cruise could be San Juan.  It is an experience to sail into San Juan along the north coast of Puerto Rico, outside the treacherous reef and into the protection of the three forts that guard the harbor entrance. All three are maintained by the National Park Service.  The narrated tour and reenactment are worth the trip. An excellent secure marina is a short ride from the forts. On weekends the skies above the fort are filled with many colored kites as people take advantage of the open spaces. The Old Town has been restored and is a fascinating place to tour. There are wonderful old buildings, small quaint eateries, several high end, high style clubs and restaurants bustling with San Juan's in crowd.

On departure day the Marina is but a short drive to the airport.

Here is an opportunity to charter Eliza without leaving US territory. There are many flight options at very competitive rates and you can still find unspoiled anchorages and beaches, interesting things to see and do ashore, and a superb crew catering to your every whim, fully prepared to coddle every member of your party. In short, can you think of a more perfect "Getaway" week?
