USVI Water Sports and Activities
As you would expect in the Caribbean we have a profusion of water sports and activities available during your USVI sailing vacation!
SUP, Kayaks, iFloats and Water Skiing – La Grande Bellezza
Try out the hot new trend on the water by using one of La Grande Bellezza’s Stand-Up Paddle Boards (SUP’s). Instead of the traditional surfboard style, where you paddle out to the wave with your arms and stand up to catch it, on a stand-up paddle board (SUP) you stand up the entire time and use your paddle to get around. You don’t even need waves to have a great time on an SUP. Ideal for exploring deserted beaches and coves.
Paddleboards are a fabulous charter accessory. The SUP is an easy and stable paddle for first timers, perfect to explore idyllic creeks and bays with a great vantage point to see fish, without putting a mask on! The boards are fun to paddle longer distances, “Do a Downwinder” or catch a wave for the more experienced paddler. They also make an excellent mode of transport to head to a bar or beach…..or just to relax on, or even yoga on, tethered to the back of your yacht. Adjustable length paddles ensures a perfect fit for all.
Our double kayaks come equipped with seat backs, bottle holders and gear storage giving you the potential to do a grand tour of the bays from your yacht, or a convenient way to get to the beach. Alternatively, their stability lends itself to trying a spot of fishing . The highly durable and lightweight combination make it an easy accessory to add to your charter and adds another dimension to your adventure.
Kayaks, Paddleboards and iFloats are a wonderful way to enjoy anchorages at the end of the day in peace and tranquility, or take a picnic to a deserted beach … and its great exercise too!
