According to The New York Times, the Spanish Virgins are the Caribbean the way it was 30 years ago--few tourists, little development, perfect for a relaxing voyage in the tropical breeze while the chill of winter still hangs on up north.

If miles of secluded white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water for snorkeling, colorful, healthy reefs, world-famous bioluminescence, and great sailing are for you, then join our 10-day flotilla to explore the protected coral gardens of Culebra, lively Vieques with its Latin flare, and so much more.

Select a crewed or a bareboat monohull or multihull, and experience the secret part of the Caribbean that, until now, was mostly visited by blue-water cruisers who linger as long as they can before reluctantly continuing along on their Caribbean circuit. Most say the Spanish Virgins is their favorite place in the Caribbean. Now, with CW, you can come experience it for yourself.

The cost of $1,900 to $3,250 (per person, double occupancy, depending on boat) includes cocktail parties and dinners, partial provisions, and a lead boat with CW flotilla leaders and professional skipper. Choose a boat with a captain, skipper your own, or we have great success putting like-minded charterers together. Singles welcome.
