Tour Details

YELLOW LEG

DEPART AMERICAN YACHT HARBOR AND HEAD SOUTH BETWEEN CURRENT CUT. TO YOUR LEFT YOU WILL SEE GREAT SAINT JAMES ISLAND, HOME TO CHRISTMAS COVE. YOU WILL PASS THEST THOMAS YACHT CLUB ON YOUR RIGHT, WHERE SOME OF THE MOST ELITE SAILORS IN THE WORLD HAVE BEEN GROOMED, AS YOU CRUISE INTO OPEN OCEAN TOWARD BUCK ISLAND. LOTS OF MAJOR ISLANDS IN THE CARIBBEAN POSSESS A NEARBY “BUCK” ISLAND;. HISTORY CLAIMS THE NAME “BUCK” WAS KNOWN AS THE LOCATION BAD SLAVES WERE SENT TO WITH NO WATER, FOOD, OR SHADE AS A FORM OF PUNISHMENT – ONE LOOK AT THE LANDSCAPE AND ONE CAN IMAGINE WHERE THE PUNISHMENT COMES INTO PLAY. ALL BUZZ-KILLS ASIDE, TODAY THE ISLAND IS A NATIONAL PARK BIRD SANCTUARY SURROUNDED BY AN ABUNDANCE OF MARINE LIFE. ONCE YOU ARIVE AT BUCK YOU CAN SWIM WITH THE TURTLES AND FEED THE YELLOW TAIL SNAPPER BY HAND – BRING SOME DOG FOOD, ITS THEIR FAVORITE. TEST YOUR SWIMMING SKILLS AND SEE IF YOU CAN SWIM DOWN TO OPENING OF THE SHIPWRECK AT 30′.

ORANGE LEG

UP NEXT IS HONEYMOON BEACH AT WATER ISLAND. wATER ISLAND IS KNOWN AS THE “4TH U.S.VIRGIN ISLAND”, IT WAS FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OWNED UNTIL 1996 WHEN IT WAS SOLD TO THE USVI FOR 25M. THERE ARE ONLY A FEW HUNDRED “RESIDENTS” ON THE ISLAND WHOM ARE MOSTLY SNOWBIRDS, SPENDING ONLY WINTERS ON ISLAND. YOU CAN RENT GOLF CARTS AND CRUISE AROUND, CHECK OUT FORT SEGARRA OR JUST RELAX AND HAVE A DRINK AT THE FLOATING BAR. CHOOSE TO EAT AT HEIDI’S HONEYMOON GRILL OR  WAIT FOR THE NEXT STOP AS YOU HEAD TO THE NEWEST BEACH BAR ON ST. THOMAS, ABI.

RED LEG

YOU’LL RECOGNIZE THE SHORE VIEWS AS WE LOOP BACK TO THE SOUTH SIDE TO HANG OUT AT ABI. HERE YOU CAN PLAY BEACH VOLLEYBALL OR RELAX IN A CABANA, MOST WEEKENDS THEY’LL HAVE LIVE MUSIC TO ENJOY. THE PROPERTY ISUNIQUE AS ITS MADE OUT OF SHIPPING CONTAINERS SO IT HAS A COOL MAKE-SHIFT VIBE AND IS GREAT PLACE FOR A $15 BRUNCH ON THE WEEKENDS. THEY OFFER FRESH SQUEEZED CITRUS BEVERAGES, OTHERWISE KNOWN ON ISLAND AS “CRUSHES” BE SURE TO GRAB ONE. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS IS NOT A SNORKEL SPOT.

PURPLE LEG

HEADING CLOSER EAST YOU’LL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE ON SOME MORE ADVANCED SNORKELING AT COW AND CALF REEF – LEGEND HAS IT THE REEF WAS NAMED BY DRUNKEN WHALERS THAT WOULD MISTAKE THE TOPS OF THE REEFS AS A MOTHER WHALE AND ITS CALF. WE LOVE THIS REEF BECAUSE OF ALL THE TUNNELS AND CORAL ARCHES TO SWIM THROUGH. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE SHARK THAT HANGS OUT AROUND THE REEF ALONG WITH A LOBSTER OR TWO. FOR THE MORE ADVANCED FREE DIVERS THERE IS A 20′ SWIM THROUGH PASSAGE WITH AN ENTRANCE AT ABOUT 35′.

GREEN LEG

 LAST LEG OF THE TRIP AS WE HEAD TOWARDS THE HARBOR BUT IF YOU HAVE TIME LEFT STOP IN AT CHRISTMAS COVE AND GRAB A SLICE OF PIZZA FROM THE FLOATING PIZZERIA, PIZZA PI, OR SHOOT OVER TO CRUZ BAY FOR A DRINK AT BEACH BAR.

Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Zürich, Switzerland

We’ll meet at 4 p.m. at our hotel in Luzern (Lucerne) for a “Welcome to Switzerland” meeting. Then we’ll take a meandering evening walk through Switzerland’s most charming lakeside town, and get acquainted with one another over dinner together. Sleep in Luzern (2 nights). No bus. Walking: light.

Day 2Zürich–Biel/Bienne–Neuchâtel–Geneva

Enjoy an orientation walk of Zurich’s OLD TOWN, Switzerland’s center of banking and commerce. Then, leave Zurich and start your Swiss adventure. You’ll quickly discover that Switzerland isn’t just home to the Alps, but also to some of the most beautiful lakes. First, stop at the foot of the Jura Mountains in the picturesque town of Biel, known as Bienne by French-speaking Swiss, famous for watch-making, and explore the historical center. Next, enjoy a scenic drive to lakeside Neuchâtel, dominated by the medieval cathedral and castle. Time to stroll along the lake promenade before continuing to stunning Geneva, the second-largest city in Switzerland, with its fantastic lakeside location and breathtaking panoramas of the Alps.

Day 3Enchanting Engelberg

Our morning drive takes us from Swiss lakes to Swiss Army. At the once-secret Swiss army bunker at Fortress Fürigen, we’ll see part of the massive defense system designed to keep Switzerland strong and neutral. Afterward, a short drive into the countryside brings us to the charming Alpine village of Engelberg, our picturesque home for the next two days. We’ll settle into our lodge then head out for an orientation walk. Our stroll through the village will end at the Engelberg Abbey, a Benedictine monastery with its own cheese-making operation. You’ll have free time to wander back before dinner together. Sleep in Engelberg (2 nights). Bus: 1 hr. Walking: light.

Day 4Interlaken Area. Excursion to The Jungfrau Massif

An unforgettable trip to the high Alpine wonderland of ice and snow is the true highlight of a visit to Switzerland. Globus Local Favorite At an amazing 11,332 feet, the JUNGFRAUJOCH is Europe’s highest railway station. Jungfrau’s 13,642-foot summit was first ascended in 1811 and in 1912 the rack railway was opened. There are lots of things to do here: enjoy the ALPINE SENSATION, THE PANORAMA 360° EXPERIENCE, and the ICE PALACE. Also receive your JUNGFRAU PASSPORT as a souvenir to take home with you. The round trip to the “Top of Europe” by MOUNTAIN TRAIN will take most of the day.

Day 5Lake Geneva and Château de Chillon

It’s market day in Lausanne! Enjoy browsing and packing a picnic lunch for our 11 a.m. boat cruise on Lake Geneva. A few miles down-shore we’ll dock at Château de Chillon, where we’ll have a guided tour of this delightfully medieval castle on the water. On our way back we’ll take time to peek into the vineyards surrounding Lutry before returning to Lausanne. Boat: 2 hrs. Bus: 1 hr. Walking: moderate.
