"To hang out for the day. Excellent. So you mentioned early on that people can do a bare boat or they can. We talk about the small boat experience or they can charter boat with a captain for people who are not sailors like me. What are your recommendations before they plan a trip. This. If you're even if you are a sailor, a lot of sailors, I wasn't going to be my next question. Their boat because they want to be quote, unquote, captain their own bow in and I get it. They want to experience. I did it before I became a professional captain. I understand that at the same time, those same people might want to look at the very least hiring a captain or doing a captain only like offer where you get the local experience where they say that's not bad, but why don't we try this and go here in that type of thing. And you kept it only versus captain and a crew member Greg dumbing commit. So if you're gonna do a crude can charter versa air boat. You can do captain only which you have myself doing that and a few others. There's not a lot of doing it in essentially the pri- it, what it means is you get just the captain in the boat you pay for all the expenses. So whatever outcome, if you're not a huge drinker, it might be the way to go because you're not paying for the all inclusive gut. As what the captain only is. Although a lot of us throw in extra services, I do cook some dinners and make drinks of the day and pick up provision for you, that type of thing. But the more popular thing is the all inclusive, which is exactly what the name says. You get on the boat and everything's paid for all your drinks, all your food, but it is way more expensive as the other side of it, and you get a captain and a chef in less, you get on the like a sixty foot boat. You may get a third or fourth person, but typically it's a two person crew. They tend to be boyfriend. Girlfriend husband wife's hookah, and this shifts are Mike props to them is they are working their tails off. They put out three hot meals a day, usually a snack in pretty much. They clean up from one meal and they're starting to prep for the next meal. Okay. So those are your two options. If you wanna do a boat, if you don't want to be your own captain. Now, if you are a sailor and you did wanna do bare boat. Any your don't have the captain at all? How would you even know where to go? Are their guides that you would use to determine where to go? If it was your first time in if you're sailor and you're taking these classes, learning how you I thought is I'm taking these glasses so I can charter a boat in the BI. So most of them all ready have an idea. But if you Google bare boat charters in the BVI, you're going to come up with the really big ones which are the Morenes sale, their lesser friars oats, very expensive. You have your what we call this second tier companies. I use myself before I bought my boat con charters kind older boat, but it's going to be cheaper and they were wonderful company. And I mean, you just there's gotta be twenty five different companies that you can bear both from what is going to surprise people about the Virgin Islands. Oh, the biggest things. I think this prizes people is how close everything is toge-. Whether a lot of my just kind of joke is like they always ask me how far to the next by my answer's always, oh, you know, an hour and a half, and they start joking halfway through the week. It's an hour hour and a half except for that one where said, come from anegada to Joost Van Dyke. Right? But everything is roughly five miles apart finals there. You don't need any navigation. You just I wanna go there. That's a good point. Yeah, you could usually see your next destination well and the two exceptions to that, but we didn't include on this. I tenor it. You didn't include going down to Saint Croix or going over to the case. And those are going to be a little longer sale. Justin, not grouped with all of the other all the other islands that we were talking about with the one exception are all very close together, correct? So what we talked about so far is all the British Virgin Islands. We have sink John right there. And again, if people want to get away from the bars in the crowds going around Saint John, like we talked about its two-thirds of national park, you have these very quiet bays and very beautiful bays, but it's very nature oriented. You may not see a house or building and three other boats with you type of pain. And I think that's a wonderful trip going around there. Now, if you wanna go to Saint crew, like you said, it's a thirty five mile sale south the Saint Thomas in sync John to get to sink cry, and I would call that open water. So if you want to water experience, that's not a bad one. It's not bad sailing as it tends to be being reached there in back now you. Need to define that for me being just when the wind hits the side of the boat. Got. So thanks very easy because it's just one tack down there one time. So you don't have to do a bunch of work just once you get going, wait, five, eight hours and you show up there. There's more to it than now, but in verse, if you're trying to go up when you're gonna have to go in one direction than go ninety greasy other and then back and forth and back in order to get up wind. And then if you wanna get over and I know you've talked a lot about the at kit's. But personally, I think core labor, which is just north of the at guess to me that is the Remo spy. It's what the Caribbean was thirty years ago, and it has a very Spanish field to it is wonderful, but either one of those islands to get there, you're talking twenty miles in its down. Wind sail from Saint Thomas to them. And then the bad part is it's a twenty mile up win where you're just going against the wind. The waves. Interesting. But it is worth it. I mean, they are beautiful there. I've had times when I've had entire base to myself for the entire week going around the Spanish Virgin Islands. That's not what should we pack we're not. This is not big cruising, and so we're not bringing our formal dress. We're bringing a swimsuit and a t-shirt and and what else if people could stop it, just that they would do? Well, I've actually had guests that come for second third times and they say they still over-packed. We jokingly tell people to lay out the clothes. They think they need lay out the money. They need put happy, close away, double the money, and they're ready to go. So the big thing people do is think they need an outfit for every day. And the reality is you're going to be in swimsuit all day ladies may have like a thin cover up stripe of me or sarong owner something, but for the most part guys and girls your in your bikini or in your swimsuits the whole day. And then at night you take a shower and you put on a short and t shirts, and you were for three hours whether is no reason, you can't wear that outfit for rear four days is not getting dirty. That's all you need that sunscreen and you're good to go. That's the basics right there. I might throw in sunglasses a hat, but I'm with you. I mean, you just you need way way less than you think you do when you're chartering abo- anything else. We wanna tell people before they book their trip to go down to the Virgin Islands. The biggest thing I would say is the British Virgin Islands are the charter capital of the world, and I give everybody wants to go there, but I would urge people. To look into Saint John in look into the Spanish Virgin Islands, especially if you're not into that bar hopping type of scene, which is what the BVI sometimes can be sure when you'll get more away from it. And I've had guests in. I give booked sometimes at book myself, and sometimes I get brokers book me and the broker say, you have to take him to be behind. I start talking to the guest and what they want on. Like if you're okay, let's give Saint John try for the week and by the end of the week, they are like, this is exactly what I wanted. I wanted good snorkeling some beaches and nobody else around. So that would be the biggest thing as wonderful as BB. I is just give some for Saint John and the Spanish Virgin Islands. Excellent. Now's, we get to wear wrap up questions. You're standing in the prettiest spot in the Virgin Islands. In your opinion, where are you standing on? What are you looking at? See, that's that's a tough one because the deaf. Finish of standing. If we're talking where my boat is my favorite Anchorage in the entire Virgin Islands is on the south side of Saint John in it's called salt pond bay in it's very well protected. Beautiful little beach is not really crowded. It's got to one longer one, not so long hike. You got snorkeling, you've got, you can paddle board so everybody can we get there and everybody can go in seven different directions. And we all are in the sing bay. And I just I love being in that bay. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh say only originals everybody in the sink. Thomas has a bumper sticker says, you can't make this stuff up. It is amazing in we joked Saint Thomas is third row nation with birth role prices in. It's just some of the stuff that they get away with their. You're just like, what are you thinking? And every day you never know what you're gonna see. Excellent. And if you had to summarize the Virgin Islands, in just three words, what three words would you use? Perfect. Cruising grounds. Excellent. At our guest, again, has been captain Shane. McClellan. Again, the website is s. v. guiding light dot com. And Shane, if we wanted to send people over to your most interesting post on SV getting light com or somewhere else where we sending them. Well, as far as post, I think they're all interesting right now I'm writing about the grinning dean's down in the Korpi down there, but the thing I'm most proud of is actually get through it my website, but it's on YouTube in. It's my travel video series called aboard the guiding light and some of it's based on the boat. And I've got seventeen episodes in the Virgin Islands crib Ian, but some of its when I backpacked through Iceland, Kirghistan, Norway, all that. So it's anywhere I've traveled. And I just I love being a tour guide and I love making travel videos in. So that's the thing I'm most proud of. Excellent. We'll put a link to that. Shuts faint. Thanks so much for coming on. Amateur, traveler. Insuring with this, your love for the Virgin Islands. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. News, the community. As I mentioned last week with there is going to be a change in the amateur traveler, and that involves the I tunes enhanced version. Now, most of you don't use that version or at least you use that version, but you don't look at the pictures and links what you tell me in surveys. And so we're changing the feed that everybody is getting to be using the MP three version of the show. We will still be creating the I tunes enhanced version will still be free it just that you'll have to get it through the website and so that change will happen very soon. Now, just after this goes out, we'll probably wait another week and then we'll make that change. So did wanna let you know that still available still free, but you will be switched to the MP three version. And the reason for that is I'm trying to do some changes to see if we can make the show pay for itself because it barely breaks even at this point. With that. We're going to end this episode of amateur traveller. If you have any questions sent an Email to hosted immature, traveler dot com or better yet leave a comment on the road at amateur, traveler dot com. Thanks so much for listening. Champi.

"The bags back on the road. And read. It's go real good pass board. Amateur, traveler pursued six hundred and twenty. Today the amateur traveler talks about boots and beach bars, snorkeling and sugar factories pirates and of course rum. As we go to the Virgin Islands. Welcome to the mature traveler, your host, Chris Christensen if you didn't listen to the announcement in last week show, make sure you listen to the end of this show. When I have a important announcement for listeners, the show, especially listeners of the I tunes enhanced version. But first, let's talk about the Virgin Islands. I'd like to welcome to the show captain Shane McClellan from the sailing vessel, guiding light and the SV guiding light dot com website. Now, do I call you Shane or captain Shane, which would you prefer here? Oh, Shane. Okay, excellent. And you have come to talk to us about the Virgin Islands. Welcome to the show. Thank you very much. I appreciate you having me now. First of all, this is going to be one. That's a little weird because when I say the Virgin Islands, what country I talking about. Virgin Islands. You are talking about two different countries in the US and the British, but the US owned portion is actually divided into the US Virgin Islands, and what we call the Spanish Virgin Islands, which are simply the islands, east of Puerto Rico in their own by Puerto Rico. Excellent. And why should somebody go to the Virgin Islands? Let's start with that. Oh, why not go to Virgin Islands. I mean, as long as you like beaches, son, snorkeling water, some of them pretty darn famous bars. It's just got everything you could want, including some wonderful hiking over on Saint John, just anything you want. I could probably find for you in the burgeon islands. Excellent. And we have done a couple of different shows on this destination, but it's been a while. I think the most recent when we did was on the case on the Spanish for journalists, but just on that island and we've done another show on the Virgin Islands, the British in the US and then way way back in the archives. You will find a show about experience that I did for my fortieth birthday. It was a dream trip, and that was a sailing ship, larger sailing vessel than you are taking around chain. But the old wind jammer barefoot cruise sailing ship, which one hundred, four passenger boat that we did through all three of those areas. And I say back when I was four. That's been a few years ago, but there is an episode way back in the archives of traveler about that trip. What kind of tannery do you recommend for the Virgin Islands will my experience and I've been in the Virgin Islands for the last seven years running charters. I run mine on a forty one foot catamaran, but I'm basically when I talk about charters, we're talking anything between forty and sixty foot crude or bare boat where you are in charge of the boat yourself. So we're talking basically a week where you do a loop around the British Virgin Islands, or you could do, which I prefer even more because of how its nature oriented, but going to loop around Saint John. And if someone has been Virgin Islands, but they were there on their big boat crews. And I say, big book cruise, just a distinguished from a small book critics which we are talking about. They've already done this so they don't need to listen to what you're talking about. It's going to be exactly the same right of course exactly. The same. The cruise ships are great in their wonderful in the islands in if you take one win, let's say you go to war tola. You are gonna have time to go to one destination is going to be a wonderful destination. But by doing that, what we're talking about today, you're going to be off to do all of these over a week and you'll go one day here. One day there and you'll be able to get so much more of an experience of the Virgin Islands, the BVI or Saint John, whatever it is verse the cruise ship. You're kind of rushed to go get that one thing you're gonna do. Let's say in the b. I, it's the bass is the most popular Russian to get there. You're going through real quick following Graham on everybody else in the rush back where a lot of you come with me. I have my own special route through the bass, and most of my fellow captains have their own special little feature in the Bassett they do. And it really. Just shows you something away from just doing a conga line through to sensually, which is what happens when the cruise ships are in? Well, I suspect and we'll get to this, but you're probably going to take us to some places to that big boat can't go. So where are you going to take? Let's start with the British Virgin Islands and a typical trip. We usually start going to Norman island in from air. We skip Peter island, although that's going to change and we can talk about that a minute, why? But which get Peter and we go to Cooper, which is very popular from there. We go up to virgin Gorda. We do the bass at the southern end in we do the north sound up at the north end, and that's where you're bitter in your SABA. Those type of places are and in from there, we sell out to anegada which is completely different than all the other Virgin Islands. And then we have a long relaxing sale back over to Joost Van Dyke and we party at FOX's in soggy dollar. That's usually about a week, and we end up back in Saint Thomas and drop you off. Excellent. Okay. Now let's go through that a little slower. You're starting in where are we in road town or typically I pick up in red hook at the east end of Saint Thomas because people can fly into sing Thomas a lot cheaper than they can be. I out whether that makes sense. Sure. And I must say typically, and this is probably sixty percent of my guests at one and do this. It wanna do the BVI and then we can come back and talk about some other alternative routes, but will spend night on the north side of Saint John. I really like water Limine key. Most of the time people are getting in and by the time they get to the boat, it's two thirty, three o'clock. We spend an hour to get over there. They've been travelling all day and we're there by four. Everybody can jump in the water and just relax. Don't even necessarily snorkel. They just wanna decompress. So they jump in the water. We have a cocktail for the evening, and I cook dinner, and it's just very relaxing night to let everybody relaxed from trout. Cooling and then just expand on that a little bit. So we flew into Saint Thomas to Charlotte Amalia and again, this is one of the big or cruise ship ports, and so that's why the flights are cheaper. There are a lot of people coming to Saint Thomas, but you're then immediately taking off heading over to Saint John, the other major island while the other of two major islands in the US Virgin Islands. And that one being mostly covered by national park gratitude thirds of national park and the bay that we're apt to Waterloo key is really cool because you can do about a mile even call it a hike is it's just a flash real, a mile walk. And I can give them a Pistorious tour through Annenberg sugar factory, which is a ruins. It was the most successful sugar factory had the largest windmill. So you have that right there. You got garrison up the hill. You have a what we call a great house in Americans would know more as a plantation home and you have that. Up the hill. You had this little island, it's called Waterloo Mckee, dust the name of that bay and snorkeling around it is some of the best examples of soft corals can show people. So even just in this first bay, there's still much that people can do and they usually don't get to all of his. They're like, what is great, but we wanna see more stuff. So it's just a fantastic places start off charter. Okay. And when you talk about water lemon key and always have trouble pronouncing that word being spelled CA, we're talking about a place that isn't as acceptable, not by boat. There's not the major road that goes there as there is for trunk bay. For instance, where if I'm on excursion from a cruise ship, I'm probably gonna head there because the buses go there. If you wanna get to water limit by road, you would have to park Annenberg sugar factory and point eight to one mile to get over to the beach. Got it. Okay. So we're already off. Off the beaten path of of the major tourism at that point? Correct. Excellent. And then where would you hit us the next day? The next day unfortunate. We gotta take your red tape and bureaucracy to start off with. So we have to go over to silvers whole to check into the British Virgin Islands is it's not it's own country, but it is part of the Britain in we're part of the US. You have to check into the British Virgin Islands, and that's not terribly exciting. But after that we do get to go to Norman island, which has some wonderful snorkeling with the Indians which are essentially for Roxette stick about the water. One side is ten to fifteen feet deep. The other side drops fifty feet straight down. So it's it's very, very popular and call it the number one snorkel site in the British Virgin Islands, but it's worthy of that description. It's beautiful colorful in just wonderful. Now, last time. I was on Norman island. I think there was one building there. I don't know if that has changed over the years. Well, let me let me get to that. The other snorkel spy is the caves. Yeah. Amen. Besides her three caves that you can actually swim into and you're not going under water there, watering swim in, but what is fun historically is the Norman island was the inspiration for the book treasury limber, Robert Louis Stevenson, and those caves are the caves in the book. It's very loosely based on the island, but we what we have is that it's based on that island. We should say there's at least three different stories that I know of where Treasure Island is based on this is the story they tell, at least in the BBI's. This is. Right there and everybody seems to eat it up and it seems to make the most sense. If you look at the map in the book, it's not perfect, but things line up pretty good.
