Our top three destinations for the charters are:
British Virgin Islands Charters and Boat Rental
The perfect charter destination for sailors of any level, where waters are crystal clear, beaches are flawless and rum punches beat all other rum punches. The sailing conditions could not be better for those new to sailing or those just wanting to take things a bit easy in the true Caribbean style. Easy deep water island hops, consistent trade winds, line-of-sight navigation and numerous anchorages make this the sailors playground. Chartering in the BVI’s is a dream come true for any sailor, for families, for groups of friends or for a romantic getaway. The BVI’s are made up of a selection of islands, each one offering its own magical gem to discover - the Baths in Virgin Gorda, the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke and the Wreck of the Rhone at Norman Island are just a few suggestions.
St Martin, St Barth and Anguilla Charters and Boat Rental
A strong contender for the most popular sailing destination in the Caribbean, St Martin offers our charterers good winds and medium seas. Sailors can enjoy some really exhilarating open-water sailing, some more localized island-hopping, or an easy mix of the two. St Martin itself is divided between two principalities: in the north, the French principality St. Martin, and the Dutch principality Saint Maarten in the South, making a perfect combination of Caribbean cruising with European food and flair. Its vibrant and lively culture, with reggae bands and piano players and a whole host of festivities throughout the year, leave you no excuse not to party! The beaches are superb, the snorkeling outstanding and the cuisine exquisite. And don’t forget about beautiful Anguilla and St Barth, just some hours away…
Antigua Charters and Boat Rental
The yachting Mecca of the Caribbean is a big favorite with sailors of all standards. Enjoy a mixture of blue water sailing and short line of sight hops from picture perfect bay to picture perfect bay. Warm, steady trade winds make Antigua one of the most popular sailing destinations in the world. The two separate islands that make up the joint country of Antigua and Barbuda may be within a 30 mile easy reach from each other, but they are a million miles apart when it comes to character and lifestyle. Antigua is renowned for its healthy social scene. Visit to Shirley Heights is an absolute must to sample the infamous rum punch. Stop off on Green Island for some of the best snorkeling the Caribbean has on offer. To recuperate head for the lull of Barbuda and the glorious pink sandy beaches and its colorful coral.
