Ocean Getaways is the leading U.S. provider of yachting incentive programs and groups. We pioneered the concept of the "Caribbean Yachting Incentive Program" and have personally operated more yachting incentive programs than any other yacht charter broker services in the United States. Corporate clients include Chrysler, Lincoln Financial, Nestle, Mack Trucks and BMW, to name but a few.
Our vision encompasses tomorrow. Trish Cronan, President of Ocean Getaways is one of the founding members of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association International (CYBA), has served as both its president and vice president, and is currently on the board of directors. She is the founding member and chairperson of its "Going Green" environmental committee, committed to preserving the health and beauty of our oceans. She is also an active member of Florida Yacht Brokers Association (FYBA) and American Yacht Charter Brokers Association (AYCA).
The world is our oyster. We have personally sailed the oceans, and the knowledge that we gain allows us to create very unique itineraries for you. We are pleased to offer you worldwide luxury yachting destinations throughout the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Southeast Asia, South Pacific, Galapagos, Bahamas, Florida, Alaska, and along the coasts of the United States.
Trish Cronan, President, and Captain Brad Lavigne, Director, are the founders of Ocean Getaways. As a husband/wife team, they both have been key players in the international yacht charter industry since 1980. Sailing is in their DNA, having started out as captain and chef and then as yacht charter brokers since 1984.
In Trish’s words, “We are consummate lovers of the ocean, avid sailors, and our hearts and souls have been nurtured by the unparalleled beauty of the world's oceans since we first discovered the Caribbean Sea in the late 1970s. The lure of sailing on a yacht in azure waters with gentle breezes is like a siren’s call to us.” This passion and zest are the underpinnings of Ocean Getaways’ relationships with its clients.
We listen to you carefully, respond quickly, think creatively, plan with precision, and smile often. We love what we do and can’t wait to share the truly unique wonders of yachting with you.
We travel the world to source the best yachts and crews, and we have sailed in most of the destinations that we recommend. Many yacht charter specialists attend international charter shows to inspect the fleet and evaluate crews. We take it a step farther - we specialize in group yacht charters, and we sail with these groups so we get to know the crews firsthand. Being in Florida with Ft. Lauderdale as the superyacht hub, we have numerous opportunities each month to view new charter yachts and crews.
It’s a vacation so let’s have fun planning it. Yes, we are dead serious when it comes to negotiating the best contract for you and handling funds, but beyond that we are still enthused every time we help someone cast off on a luxury yacht vacation.
We are Not Just Yacht Charter Agents – We are Incentive Planning Experts and Corporate Yacht Charter Experts. That’s What Makes Us Distinct From Any Other Yacht Charter Company.

We’re proud to be at the very forefront of the Going Green movement which is slowly, but surely, revolutionizing the luxury yacht charter business. Our President, Trish Cronan, launched the Green Committee of the Charter Yacht Brokers Association International.
Eco-friendly vacations are gaining in popularity with travellers the world over, who are realizing the need to protect the natural wonders they so longingly wish to see. At Ocean Getaways, we’re proud to be at the very forefront of the Going Green movement which is slowly, but surely, revolutionizing the luxury yacht charter business.
Our President, Trish Cronan, has spent the last couple of years talking trash… mostly plastic water bottle trash. It’s not a glamorous subject. In fact, it is downright toxic when you think of the millions of plastic water bottles that super yachts and charter yachts send to the landfills every year. A Fiji, an Aquafina, or an Evian will outlast any yacht plying the ocean today. No one knows for sure, but estimates for how long it takes a plastic bottle to degrade range from 450 to 1,000 years.
To some, the concept of an eco-friendly super yacht sounds like an oxymoron. To those skeptics, we say, “Just google green and super yacht, and sift through the 3 million results. You’ll be impressed.”
As technological innovations abound in the super yacht industry, for every new build, there’s probably 100 older, and by older we mean 5 years or more, charter yachts that are challenged to go green with the hulls that they have. For them, the changes are incremental – treating their fuel, using paints that reduce AC consumption, and tweaking systems so that they burn less energy. Nothing radical, just a few simple steps at a time.
"This was truly the finest event that I have ever hosted or ever been on. More importantly, each and every one of my sales staff says the same thing."
"This was my 17th program ... and it was the most memorable and well-organized trip that I’ve ever been part of."
"Thank you for all of the hard work you put into making this a successful program. We can't and wouldn't do it without you and your knowledge. You are true partners. Personally, this is my favorite type of program."
"We have operated many successful programs with Ocean Getaways over the past 10 years. On our last program with Ocean Getaways their product got perfect scores in all the post-program surveys. The only suggestion we got from participants when asked how we could improve the program was to “make the trip longer."
"We have hired Trish and her company multiple times to assist us in managing a deliverable program for some of our most demanding clients and she and her team have consistently come through for us. Trish is an expert at what she does and I would recommend her and Ocean Getaways to anyone who is looking for one of the most unique Corporate Incentive Trips out there."
