Island Excursion: Cooper Island, BVI

The Rum Bar
Guests aboard Cuan Law are welcome to venture to shore via kayak or dinghy to sample aged rums from all over the Caribbean. Order a sampler board and the knowledgeable and friendly bartender JJ will explain the history, recipes, and origins of the rums.
It’s also worth a trip to grab a coffee from Virgin Islands Roasters next door at the Coffee Shop. A full range of gourmet delights are on offer such as espresso, smoothies, gelato, pastries and salads, and our favorite…chocolate fudge! (Free WIFI)
Machioneel Bay, Cooper Island is world renowned for white sand beaches and crystal clear waters. Cuan Law guests can explore the waters by kayak or hobie cat. Enjoy the snorkeling at Cistern Point – keep an eye out for turtles, eagle rays, tarpon, angel fish, and schools of squid.
The beautiful waters surrounding Cooper Island offer a variety of different dive experiences.The famous RMS Rhone, a British steamship, which foundered on Black Rock Point and is known as one of the world’s top dive sites.

One of our favorite stops during your BVI sailing vacation is Spring Bay in Virgin Gorda which lies east of the Baths. Giant boulders line the beach where our crew sets up a delicious BBQ lunch of grilled burgers, hot dogs, fish, salads and cooler of mixed drinks, wine and beer.
Its small coves, which provide safe snorkeling are perfect for families with kids. Massive boulders form coves that allow a steady but calm flow of water back and forth. Marine life is vibrant at Spring Bay since fishing is not permitted. A unique enclosure of boulders forms a natural pool called The Crawl. In the past, this was used by fishermen to hold turtles and fishes alive until they were ready to be used.
