Cuba Overview

Setting off on a Cuba yacht charter journey has been a seemingly impossible dream for many years. One of the most captivating destinations on the planet, for Americans particularly, this ‘forbidden fruit’ destination has recently opened up to a brand new tourism market, something which was long deemed unthinkable.

Looking for that unique, off-the-beaten-wave destination on your next sailing adventure?

You just found it.

With her alluring culture, outstanding architecture, a myriad of mesmerizing experiences and spectacular coastline, not to mention the insanely delectable food and hypnotizing salsa music, Cuba has swiftly become the hottest ‘mecca’ on the bow of US luxury yacht charters. It’s been more than half a century since private US yacht charters have been allowed to sail the turquoise waters of this amazing Central American hub, and –as far as we’re concerned - easing of relations between the two nations could not have come soon enough.

Be among the first to experience this incredibly rewarding destination aboard a luxury yacht charter and gift your senses a totally soul-reviving experience.

Exciting New Beginnings on a Cuba Yacht Charter

Cuba is and always has been an astounding place to visit, with the domestic political situation leaving the small but delightful island seemingly cut off from most of the Western world. Surely, they are quite keen to ‘catch up’ now. This country will undoubtedly change dramatically in the coming years.

If there has ever been time to visit on a Cuba yacht charter, it’s NOW!

Permission for US yacht charters to sail here does not yet equate complete carte blanche. There are still a few restrictions in place, none of which are difficult to satisfy. There are twelve approved categories under which you can travel here, as an American citizen, including family visits and educational trips. A ‘people to people’ visa, which falls under the educational journey umbrella, is the most common visa issued to prospective Cuba yacht charter guests.

As you may expect, infrastructure (especially for larger yacht charters) is still quite rudimentary. Most guests prefer to embark in Florida, dock at the Marina Hemingway in beautiful Havana, and base themselves here whilst spending days sailing and exploring nearby destinations. The sheer amount of unspoiled, undiscovered coves is out of this world. This, coupled with the immense magnetism of Havana, make Cuba yacht charters by far the most exciting prospect, in the international sailing world, of the past decade.

Bienvenidos!

Traditional, colorful, hippie, friendly, warm and enticing, Cuba is one of the last countries left on earth which has bypassed modernity and offers yacht charter guests a truly unforgettable experience. The rhythmic beat of a drum, the wafting smell of sofrito, the playful street art, Che’s face drawn on walls, tables, printed on T-shirts and flying on flags. It follows you everywhere. The vintage classics roaming the streets, the fragrant cigars, the dancing, the music and those smiles. Wherever you go…there are the infectious smiles.

Cuba is unlike any place you’ve ever visited, of this we are sure. It’s a world all of its own and, to the first-time visitor, it is a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and smells that they’ll undoubtedly remember for the rest of their lives.

Activities & Attractions on a Cuba Yacht Charter

Havana is the main port of call and will likely be your main base for Cuban discoveries. Lucky you. One could seriously spend a whole week only exploring Havana on a Cuba yacht charter trip and still have a comprehensive and memorable time. There are very few capital cities, the world over, which can offer this kind of myriad of experiences, and which can transmit the essence of an entire country, or people, like Havana can. 

Bursting with culture, history and mouth-watering food, Havana is as postcard-perfect as you’ve always been led to believe. The imperfections, of this perfect city, are what make it so damn appealing. The Art Deco buildings with peeling paint, the neglected colonial-era mansions as beautiful as paintings, the alluring salsa bars brimming with cigar smoke, wafting rum and a vibrant energy that’s hard to describe. Once you enter the world of Havana you’ll be closing the door on the rest of the world as you know it. This is, perhaps more than anything else, what is so addictive about this place.

Our Expert Opinion

Cuba has been the “forbidden fruit” of travel for U.S. citizens. With the recent relaxation of travel regulations, the cruise lines and hotel chains are prepared to bombard the island. Now is the time to go and see Cuba before the influx of U.S. tourism inundates and changes the island. Although the infrastructure to support yachting is in its infancy, you won’t regret visiting it before the masses. The islands off the south coast of Cuba are a pristine natural wonderland.
