The North Sound: Virgin Gorda's North Sound lies astride the Anegada Passage and the Sir Francis Drake Channel. This is the area where Sir Frances Drake assembled his ships before attacking Puerto Rico. It also is the site for two former pirate escape routes. Pirate escape routes were used to lure pursuers onto intervening reef shallows. One was the Eustatia Sound located at the front of the North Sound. Today, only local knowledge affords escape exits through gaps in the treacherous reefs that make even the most experienced BVI boat charterers quake with fear in their bare feet! An alternate but little used entrance/exit to the North Sound is behind Saba Rock's reef in an s-shaped transit through an opening between the islands around the back of Eustatia Island and out a little used gap in Eustatia Reef at Prickley Pear's Opuntia Point. Although a charterer on a BVI boat should never attempt it, today, this is a fun, adventurous dinghy route for those wishing to snorkel or beach comb around the area. The great era of pirates in the Caribbean extends from around 1560 up until the end of the Golden Age of Piracy in 1725. The BVI played an important part in the history of the real pirates of the Caribbean. Book your BVI boat and live the legend yourself, matey!
