Whale Sighting in the Virgin Islands

Sorry, not that type of whale... but this one!


Lynn, from charter yacht Pacific Wave, tells us:
"There’s a great new seaplane service from Antigua and Puerto Rico direct to North Sound BVI.  A company based in New York have brought their Cessna Caravan amphibians down to the beautiful BVI and they are presently offering private seaplane charters – just 60 minutes from Antigua airport and 30 minutes from San Juan airport direct to Gun Creek in North Sound.  They will meet your arriving flight at either airport and then land you on the water right next to Pacific Wave at anchor."
After landing, the pilot will take a taxi to the Customs office on Virgin Gorda and clear his passengers into the British Virgin Islands while the charterers board their yacht and enjoy a welcome cocktail. How cool is that?  What an entrance, you'll make :)

Fly the Whale is a New York-based company that provides amphibious seaplane service from Manhattan’s East River to Cape Cod and countless destinations in between, such as Martha's Vineyard for example. They have now expanded to the Caribbean.

According to their blog:
"This February, Fly The Whale became the first amphibious seaplane operator to land in the waters of the North Sound in Virgin Gorda. We are thrilled to introduce new routes from San Juan, St. Thomas and Antigua directly to the BVI. Whale Force One is enjoying its time in paradise too!"
It's nice to have options.
