The North Shore Tour

Tour Details

YELLOW LEG

DEPART AMERICAN YACHT HARBOR AND HEAD NORTH TO THE CUT BETWEEN SAPPHIRE BEACH RESORT AND SHARK ISLAND(GREAT LOBSTER SPOT). PASS COKI BEACH ON YOUR LEFT AND REMEMBER TO STOP IN FOR SOME SNORKELING OR LOCAL FOOD ON THE WAY BACK. CONTINUE WEST BETWEEN THATCH CAY AND ST THOMAS. IF CONDITIONS ARE GOOD YOU WILL BE HEADING TO THE DESERTED ISLAND OF HANS LOLLIK WHICH IS CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET FOR 45 MILLION. IT HAS A BIG BEAUTIFUL BEACH THAT THE LOCAL “FRENCHIES” HANG OUT AT FOR THE LONG EASTER WEEKEND. ANY OTHER TIME OF YEAR IT WILL MOST LIKELY BE JUST YOU AND THE RESIDENT GOATS. IF YOU ARE FEELING ADVENTUROUS GO FOR A HIKE TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN OR TRY TO FIND THE RUINS BACK IN THE WOODS. THIS IS NOT THE BEST SNORKEL SPOT SO IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SNORKEL YOU SHOULD TALK TO THE CAPTAIN ABOUT LITTLE HANS.

ORANGE LEG

IF YOU CHOSE TO HIKE AROUND HANS LOLLICK YOU WILL HAVE WORKED UP QUITE AN APPETITE, SO DECIDE IF EATING AT THE NEXT STOP MAGENS BAY; A CONCESSION WITH PIZZA AND SANDWICHES OR WAITING UNTIL HULL BAY HIDEAWAY FOR SOME OF THEIR FAMOU FISH TACOS, SOUNDS BETTER.  MAGENS BAY IS A MILE-LONG BEACH WITH A BAR AND OPEN-AIR RESTAURANT. YES, YOU CAN REACH MAGENS BY CAR BUT SHOWING UP ON YOUR PRIVATE BOAT IS A MUCH BETTER EXPERIENCE. ITS ALL THE PROS AND NONE OF THE CONS- I.E. PARKING FEE, CROWDED BEACHES, AND SUNSCREEN OVERSPRAY. MAGENS BAY IS A SANCTUARY FOR JUVENILE MARINE LIFE SO LOOK OUT FOR BABY TURTLES, SNAPPER, AND TARPON (LOOK AROUND THE BOUY LINES AND NEXT TO THE SHORE). IF YOU ARE INTO NUDE BEACHES AND BRAVE ENOUGH TO VENTURE HAVE THE CAPTAIN TAKE YOU OVER TO PLATFORM BEACH ON YOUR WAY OUT.

ORANGE LEG

ZIP OVER TO HULL BAY NEXT. THIS IS THE NOTORIOUS SURF BEACH OF ST. THOMAS. THE BREAK SPITS OUT A VERY HEAVY WAVE 400 METERS FROM SHORE SO IF YOU ARE INTO SURFING YOU CAN SAVE YOUR ENERGY ON THE PADDLE OUT AND LET US DROP YOU OFF OUTSIDE THE BREAK. YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY CAN WATCH. IF YOU CAN’T SURF BUT LIKE THE BEACH BUM VIBE YOU WILL LOVE THE HULL BAY HIDEAWAY. THEY ARE KNOWN FOR THEIR FISH TACOS AND LIVE MUSIC IN THE AFTERNOONS. THEY ALSO HAVE ONE OF THE WORST POOL TABLES ON THE ISLAND SO SHOOT SOME POOL AND SHOOT THE BREEZE DURING YOUR LUNCH BREAK.

PURPLE LEG

THIS LEG IS THE LONGEST. CARAVEL ROCK IS A GREAT PLACE FOR CLIFF JUMPING OR SNORKEL AROUND THE ROCK. LEGEND HAS IT THAT THE ROCK WAS USED AS TARGET PRACTICE BY PIRATES AND DIVERS HAVE RECOVERED OLD CANNON BALLS FROM THE REEF. THE NORTH SIDE OF THE ROCK HAS A VERY STRONG CURRENT BUT IF YOU CAN MAKE IT AROUND YOU WILL SEE BIG MARINE LIFE. THIS IS WHERE YOU WILL FIND LOBSTERS AND ABUNDANT MARINE LIFE SINCE ITS SO FAR AWAY FROM SHORE.

BLUE LEG

 IF YOU DONT WANT TO GO TO CARAVEL YOU CAN SNORKEL STEVEN’S KEY RIGHT OUTSIDE CRUZ BAY ST. JOHN. WE ALWAYS LIKE TO STOP INTO CRUZ BAY  FOR A DRINK BEFORE WE HEAD HOME. YOUR CAPTAIN WILL BACK THE BOAT RIGHT UP TO THE BEACH AND WAIT UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO HEAD BACK TO RED HOOK.

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.
