A Year at The Indians

The Indians are one of the most famous natural landmarks in the Virgin Islands. Located in the British Virgin Islands close to Norman Island and even closer to Pelican Island, they were named thusly because from a distance they were thought to look like a Native American chief’s war bonnet (sort of.) Just the tips of the feathers. Sticking out of the water. Use your imagination. Now squint.

The Indians are a great snorkeling spot and a favorite stop for day charters, including Island Wilson Excursions. We’ve been there a few times in the last 12 months and would like to share some of the photos with you. Hope you enjoy dem.

Sandy Spit

A spit is defined as a long narrow stretch of sand that extends into the sea. At least that’s the definition I found that sort of matches what I want.

Sandy spit is just a beautiful little island. Located closer to Jost Van Dyke than any other of the BVIs, It’s about 1/2 acre in size. You can easily stroll around the entire island in less than 10 minutes. Sometimes referred to as the Corona Island, because a commercial of theirs was shot there,  it has also appeared on many magazine covers, has been used in other ad campaigns and as the backdrop for various fashion shoots.

Sandy Spit is reportedly the most photographed object in the Virgin Islands. I’m not sure how you do a survey to find out something like that, but you know what? I believe it.

Spinner Dolphins Video

Ok. This is totally ripped off. I didn’t take this and the boat isn’t Deja Blue (Of course Blue isn’t a sail boat.) It was taken by Capt Greg a good friend of mine who was down here for a few days visiting and sailing and he took this footage north of Tortola, BVI. But it is very cool stuff, so I wanted to share it with you.

Spinner dolphins, also known as long-snouted dolphins, are smallish dolphins which can be found all over the world in off shore tropical waters. They are famous for their acrobatic displays. Huh? Watch the video and all will become clear.
