The Caribbean and the Bahamas

The World’s Most Popular Yacht Charter Destination

The breathtaking islands of the Caribbean and the Bahamas have long been considered the world’s most popular yachting destination. Easy to reach and a pleasure to explore, this mecca for anyone who dreams of turquoise waters, delectable seafood, an abundance of fun water sports and endless romance. Perfect for first-time and experienced sailors, this destination offers an array of attractions and activities and this is what makes it such a revered luxury yacht chartering spot.

Keep in mind that a yacht charter offers an indepth and intimate itinerary of a local destination. Unlike a cruise ship that sails from San Juan to Grenada in back in a week’s time, yachts offer a leisurely pace sailing to many places that the big ships cannot get to. Following are just a few of the best Bahamas and Caribbean highlights:

U.S. and British Virgin Islands

The US and British Virgin are the most popular yachting destination in the Caribbean. The closeness of the islands and the calmness of the seas make it ideal for first time charterers as well as families.

The USVIs offer nighttime excitement, luxury resorts, top-notch restaurants, extraordinary diving and snorkeling, and pristine national parks. The BVI, on the other hand, still boasts the same unspoiled nature yet are far less commercialized and developed, so they offer a much more laid-back sailing adventure. Because you’re in the Caribbean, needless to say, you’ll find a nearly infinite number of stellar beaches and perfect aquamarine waters no matter where you go.

Leeward Islands

With world-renowned hot spots like St. Maarten, Anguilla, St. Barth’s, Barbuda and Antigua, the Leeward Islands are arguably the most cosmopolitan of all the Caribbean, with the cultural flair of its numerous colonizers, including France, Holland and the UK, permeated into the local culture, heritage and cuisine. From world-class Michelin-starred restaurants, to championship golf courses, luxury spas and plenty of pristine marine reserves brimming with vibrant underwater life, the Leewards offer you the very best of a Caribbean yacht charter experience.

St Vincent and the Grenadines

This modest archipelago of 30-odd islands and cays were the Caribbean’s most hidden gem. St Vincent and the Grenadines still remain, despite their popularity, some of the least visited islets in the entire region. A hub of eco-tourism and nature-rich escapism, St Vincent and the Grenadines are a nature-lover’s paradise. One only need cast their eyes on the Tobago Cays to agree. These five uninhabited isles are tropical perfection, with emerald waters and an ocean-full of colorful fish and coral attracting snorkelers and divers from all over the world. In the Grenadines, you will also find a few exclusive islands, home to elegant resorts and restaurants, making it an ideal choice for groups of friends or families who want to taste a variety of Caribbean spices. The ideal weeklong itinerary for sailing yachts or catamarans is to cast off on a one-way itinerary from St. Vincent to Union Island.

Cuba

Once forbidden to U.S travelers, Cuba’s doors are now open

Bahamas

The Bahamas are a pristine yacht charter destination with over 700 islands and a variety of itinerary possibilities in a 100,000 square mile cruising area. Although proximate to the U.S., once you set sail from Nassau or Marsh Harbor you feel miles from nowhere. You can be the first one to make footprints in the sand every day. Often, your yacht is the only one in the anchorage. The coral reefs are teeming with a kaleidoscope of fish. The sport fishing is world class, and the beaches are unspoiled and inviting. A Bahamas yacht charter is a snorkeling, diving and scuba paradise.

Turks and Caicos

Unspoiled by tourism, this chain of forty islands (only eight are inhabited), boasts mile after mile of untouched beaches, breathtaking sapphire waters and the third largest coral reef on earth. Providenciales is continuously honored by Conde Naste as having one of the best beaches the world . And when you’ve had enough surf and sand, can enjoy Its championship golf course, casino, shopping and fine restaurants.
