Where to Charter in the Caribbean
The Caribbean is one of the world’s top yacht charter destinations, and for good reason. Caribbean destinations are renowned for their beauty, incredible seafood cuisine, laidback cultures and world-class diving and snorkeling opportunities.
The Caribbean is split up into several different regions, and each one offers its own unique culture, cuisine, accommodations and attractions. By reserving a private yacht charter to the Caribbean, you can have a say into which destinations you explore. Some areas worth exploring are:
- The Virgin Islands– The Virgin Islands sit in the northeastern Caribbean (just south of the Turks and Caicos) and offer the calmest seas in the Caribbean and pleasant sailing year around. St. Thomas and St. John are two of the most popular islands.
- Leeward Islands– The Leewards are situated in the middle of the Caribbean chain and include favorite charter destinations like St. Martin and Antigua.
- The Grenadines– Also called the Windward Islands, these islands are more isolated, offering yachters a quiet respite and uncrowded beaches around every corner. Windward Islands like St. Lucia, Mustique and Bequia, are popular among charterers.
Popular Caribbean Destinations
Across the Caribbean, visitors are greeted by friendly locals, laidback charm and some of the most stunning landscapes in the world. From the white sand beaches and uninhabited coves of Tobago Cays, to the chic seaside shopping districts of St. Barths and St. Martin, there are destinations to suit everyone’s tastes when you reserve a luxury yacht charter in the Caribbean. While you can spend your time in the water searching for unexplored beaches, you’ll also want to tour some of the main tourist destinations:
- St. Martin– A hub of the yacht charter industry, and part of the Leeward Islands, this island offers incredible shopping, cuisine and nightlife. Made up of a French side and a Dutch one, there are numerous historical attractions to explore. Plus, its central location makes it the perfect jumping off point for parts unknown.
- St. Barths– St Barths offers the ultimate in Caribbean luxury, making the island famous among those who reserve Caribbean boat charters and celebrities. Dine in St. Barths’ high-end eateries, browse designer trends in the island’s cosmopolitan shopping district or relax in one of the island’s world-class spas.
- Tobago Cays– This chain of cays in the Windwards offer a quiet, relaxing haven for your charter vacation. Pull up on shore and wander through the town until you find a nice place to enjoy a beachside cocktail. Also, if you’re into diving or snorkeling, Tobago Cays offers some of the best dive spots in the entire Caribbean.
- St. Lucia– A favorite Windward Island, St. Lucia combines stunning landscapes (like the iconic Pitons) with quiet beaches and loads of Southern Caribbean charm.
Best Time to Go
The Caribbean high season runs from December to May. That makes Christmas and New Year’s popular holidays for Caribbean vacations. Yet, charters are available year-round, and due to many islands’ locations near the equator, temperatures remain ideal throughout the year – making offseason charters just as enjoyable.
There is an increased chance for rain and storms during the low season, but rates are often cheaper during this time as well. If you do decide to venture to the Caribbean from May through December, just be sure to bring a rain jacket.
