Default Life is Better on a Boat: Day 7

Day 7: Sail to Peter Island and Wickhams Cay, Tortola (Sunsail Base)

Upon waking up just off Norman Island, we enjoyed a brief breakfast aboard our boats and set sail for our last adventure on the water! Before doing so, we made a brief pit stop at an area called The Indians, just off Pelican Island. The Indians consist of four jagged tooth-like pinnacles of rock protruding from the sea that have created a series of canyons and grottoes, featuring both hard and soft corals ‚?? a great spot for a morning snorkeling excursion.

After exploring the area for a bit, we headed out to sea for a two hour sail through the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Peter Island, docking at Peter Island Resort. Peter Island is a private island located about 5 miles south-west from Tortola. Once docked at Peter Island, the group boarded a powerboat to get in a little speed before wrapping up our trip. The folks at King Charters met us at Peter Island Resort Marina and we jumped aboard for an afternoon of learning to drive, steer and operate a powerboat. Along the way, we had the opportunity to see a slew of islands including, Cooper, Salt, Dead Chest and Ginger. After a speedy day on the water, we rejoined our flotilla and set off for our final sail to the Sunsail base in Wickhams Cay, Tortola.

To wrap up our 7 day adventure, the entire group enjoyed a casual dinner at the Mariner‚??s Inn ‚?? recalling our greatest stories, fears, achievements and memories that we created throughout the past week. All and all it was an experience that none of us would forget and we truly came to the realization that, indeed, life is better on a boat!
