Captains Blog: Sea Turtles, Dolphins and a week full of adventuring aboard the Liberty Star in the BVI's

Capt Jon Cook here sending out some good vibes from the Virgin Islands, aboard the Liberty Star. This week was full of fun and adventure starting out with an amazing sail into Great Harbor, Jost Van Dyke. We were able to sail right onto the anchor, always a treat. With an amazing group of passengers we explored some new spots including the beautiful beach resort at Nanny Cay, Tortola, where we all made some new friends and new memories.
The sailing all week was nothing short of amazing on our traditional schooner in the trade winds that have been sailed upon for centuries by these beautiful ships. As if the sailing wasn't enough, we were also able to do some hiking, swimming, and snorkeling to take in the beauty of all the on land and below the water inhabitants. The sea turtles were very active this week and were spotted several times a day and we were even treated to the company of a pod of dolphins guiding us to their favorite spots.
I will also have to take a second to mention all the wonderful food on board as our ship's cook, Sue,is able to prepare 5 star meals that are a real treat to your taste buds It's hard to beat enjoying her food while watching the the sunset over the mountains of the islands. 
Until next week
