Activities Aboard Three Moons
Being "bored" onboard Three Moons is never an issue! There are so many amazing things to do for adults and children of all ages. If your group has mixed interests, we can tailor-make your trip so everyone gets the most out of their day.
Always wanted to learn how to sail, but never had the chance? Now’s the time! Feel free to help as much or a little as you’d like when we sail around the islands. Whether you help us adjust the sails or take the helm you’re in for a truly exciting experience!
Breakfast al Fresco begins a new day which promises many possibilities for exciting adventures. Enjoy an early morning walk on a secluded beach, spend time snorkeling in crystal clear turquoise water, followed by an adrenalin rush on our water skis, kneeboard or inner tube. Have lunch in the spacious and comfortable bimini-shaded cockpit. Stretch out on deck for a nap and a smooth sail from one beautiful island to another. Spend the afternoon on a perfect beach while enjoying the flavors of a frozen Caribbean cocktail. Then watch the last golden rays of the tropical sun touch the horizon with a pink kiss. Dine in the beautifully appointed salon on Award-winning cuisine and then go topside to watch the moonrise in the star-studded sky. Want nightlife? Shake your booty at the Willy T at Norman Island or Foxy’s on Jost van Dyke. Visiting during a full moon? You’ll want to check out the parties at Trellis Bay and the Bomba Shack in Carrot Bay, Tortola. That’s a full day of fun aboard Three Moons!
Here’s a list of all the great things you can do while you are on your sailing vacation
Having our professional private dive master allows you to choose your time schedule and choice of dive sites anywhere within the Sir Francis Drake Channel from Norman Island through Peter Island, Dead Chest, Salt, Cooper and Ginger Islands all the way up to Mountain Point on Virgin Gorda, including the Dog Islands, Guana, the Camanoe Islands, Marina Cay and Trellis Bay. Everything you need to know about diving in the BVI waters along with affordable, top-notch dive equipment rental, dive master and a fast boat to get you there is available! The advantage to this style of diving is that you don’t have to compromise the sailing part of your vacation. You can do it all very easily and your crew will have more time to spend with you rather than servicing dive tanks.

The TOP THREE things you must do in the British Virgin Islands
The Baths at Virgin Gorda
The BVI’s Natural Wonder. With its giant boulders and amazing grottoes, the area of The Baths is high on everyone’s list of ‘must see’ destinations. En route for Virgin Gorda we’ll take you to a sheltered reef to snorkel with a multitude of colorful reef fish. An addition, a fun option is to walk up to The Top of The Baths restaurant to enjoy lunch surrounded by stunning views of the Sir Francis Drake Channel and the islands. Finally, stroll down to the beach at Spring Bay. From there, we can follow the spectacular Baths Trail through to Devil’s Bay for another snorkel in the clear Caribbean waters or a siesta on the white sand under the shade of a palm tree.
Norman Island and Treasure Point
Norman Island and the Treasure Caves, where pirate treasure was found some 160 years after it was buried there in 1750, were the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. However, The Caves aren’t the only attraction - treasure of an aquatic nature awaits snorkelers and divers alike at the reefs of nearby Pelican Island and The Indians. You’ll also want to visit the infamous Willy T, a floating bar restaurant, or Pirates Bight beach bar and restaurant where you can sample a delicious island lunch. Afterwards you can enjoy another snorkel or simply laze on the beach with a Pina Colada.
Salt Island & The Historic Wreck of the RMS Rhone
A Category Five hurricane was responsible for the sinking of the Royal Mail Ship ‘Rhone’ off Salt Island in 1867. The shallow section of the wreck lies in 25′-50′ of water and is clearly visible from the surface. After snorkeling this historic site and hearing the story of how she went down, we adjourn to the beach club nestled beneath palm trees at Cooper Island for lunch. Then there are plenty of shallow, sheltered reefs nearby for a leisurely afternoon snorkel or swim. Rendezvous Diving is also highly recommended to explore the deeper areas of the ship wreck that cannot be seen via snorkeling.
The TOP THREE things you must do in the U.S. Virgin Islands
Main Street, St. Thomas
If you love to shop, dive in! St. Thomas has the best shopping plaza in the Caribbean. The guys love sitting in the bars soaking up tropical libations and the history while the gals shop ’til they drop! Dazzling diamonds, fragrant perfume, designer duds, shiny electronics and potent liquor stream from the historic cobblestones of Main Street (also known by its Danish name, Dronningens Gade) in Charlotte Amalie. And just like you’ve read in travel book after travel book, it’s all duty-free.
Annaberg Plantation and Leinster Bay, St. John
Now a tranquil anchorage, in its heyday the Annaberg Plantation produced sugar, molasses and rum. If you swing by this ruined (but partially restored) plantation and mill, you can learn about sugar production in the 18th and 19th centuries. And depending on the day, you can participate in a demonstration on island-style basket weaving or bread baking. Down the hill from Annaberg is Leinster Bay, one of our favorite spots for great snorkeling and beach combing. The stargazing here at night is incredible!
Honeymoon Beach, Water Island
Located adjacent to where you’ll meet Three Moons in the USVI, Water Island is the fourth and most recent main island in the U.S. Virgin Islands. At a little less than 500 acres in size, Water Island is the smallest of the main U.S. Virgin Islands. With it’s tiny population, Honeymoon Beach is just about as pretty as any Caribbean beach you will find - with crystal clear water, fine white sand and palm trees. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy the beach, a burger in paradise and a tropical cocktail!
