Snorkelling and swimming at Devil's Bay, The Baths, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

The Baths are one of the most popular destinations in the British Virgin Islands. Beautiful fine sand beaches and clear shallow water is perfect for hanging out and snorkelling. Huge granite boulders are piled on the shoreline which is not a typical site in the Caribbean. Unfortunately the place gets a little crazy during the […]

Photographs of Trellis Bay, Beef Island, BVI

Aragorn's sculptures at Trellis Bay, Beef Island, BVI

Trellis Bay is a cool arts hangout on Beef Island near the British Virgin Island Airport. It’s mostly known for the monthly full moon party which unfortunately we were unable to attend as I’m sure it would have been an amazing photography experience. Maybe next year. Aragorn’s Studio has interesting Fireball Sculptures as well as […]

Norman Island Caves

Boats at anchor in front of The Caves, Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

Norman Island is reputed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s pirate novel Treasure Island. There are many stories of buried treasure on the island but most notable of these is a treasure chest found by a local family taking shelter from a storm in The Caves. While treasure has not been discovered in […]

Wildlife on Norman Island

American Kestrel (Falco sparverius), Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

Norman Island was the first chance to photograph wildlife on this British Virgin Island trip and I’m not talking about the evenings at the Willy T Bar.! The trails on the island lead to beautiful bays and everywhere you look there seems to be something happening in the animal kingdom. Lots of birds, hermit crabs and […]

Photos of Willy T’s Bar & Restaurant

Bikinis at the Willy T floating bar

While we only spent 1 hour and 15 minutes at the Willy T Bar and Restaurant (this must be a new record for shortest stay!) on Norman Island I had a great deal of fun shooting the proceedings as a few boats came and went. I expect that what I saw is nothing compared to […]

The Bight at Norman Island

Cliffs above the reef at The Bight, Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

Norman Island is largely an uninhabited island with only one small resort located at the end of The Bight. While anchoring in this bay is possible, most boats take advantage of the 120 or so mooring bouys. We arrived before noon and were quite surprised at how many of these balls were available, perhaps too […]

We arrive at West End, Tortola, BVI

Loading the Native Sons ferry at Red Hook, US Virgin Islands

Like many Islands the US Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands rely on ferries and the locals seemed to be running to get them before the last ferry would leave for their destination. We found the ferry schedule a little confusing at first but once you know what terminal you’re at it makes sense. Preplanning helps, I didn’t even […]

On to the U.S. Virgin Islands

The view of Red Hook from our B&B, U.S. Virgin Islands

Our flight from Florida headed first to Puerto Rico where we would be switching to another Jet Blue 737 for the short hop down to Charlotte Amelia on Saint Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It was just a brief stop in San Juan, Puerto Rico but for airplane junkies like me the 1 hour […]

On Assignment – Destination British Virgin Islands

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

Three weeks of sun and boating in a stunning archipelago in the Caribbean, how does this sound for a nice way to spend part of the winter? While this trip is being “billed” as a vacation for my wife Cherie and friend Terry, typically I’ll be using the trip as a working opportunity to photograph […]
