Pick Your Paradise
Caribbean Charter Yacht Vacations
“Nature’s Little Secrets” are the most popular destination for good reason – more than 50 unique islands all within sight. Surrounded by clear, warm, protected waters, the BVI has something or everyone.
A great place to start your charter with good airline connections and many types of hotels to choose from if you’re flying in a day early for your charter. US Virgin Islands also includes laid-back St. John and the Virgin Islands National Park with pristine beaches and all levels of hiking ashore to stretch your legs.
Spanish Virgin Islands (SVI)
Located just off the Puerto Rican east coast and just west of the USVI, these islands are culturally Spanish and very laid back. The main islands, Culebra and Vieques, can be very crowded during Puerto Rican holidays but, outside of that, you will find unspoiled cruising grounds and lovely beaches and quaint towns.
Leeward Islands/the St. Martins/Antigua/Anguilla/St. Barts
The eastern and northern-most islands in the Lesser Antilles, these islands provide a great variety of experiences from casual beach bars to world class shopping and dining. St. Martin is shared by both French and Dutch governments and their cultures mix delightfully with the relaxed Caribbean atmosphere. St. Barts, also French and Antigua and Anguilla, with their English heritage, all add to the European flair.
Windward Islands/ Grenadines
Although a bit more challenging to reach by air, a Grenadines charter is a step back in time to the Caribbean of old with a slower pace ashore. Many decide to charter here after enjoying several charters in the Virgin Islands for a different vibe. More spread out than the USVI and BVI, there can be some spirited sailing in the passes between the islands.
Although not technically a part of the Caribbean, The Bahamas, located just a short and inexpensive commuter flight away from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale International Airports, also offer clear waters, beautiful beaches, awesome diving and a laid back atmosphere.
