The classic way to the Caribbean is the transatlantic crossing by sailboat. With your own seaworthy sailing yacht it is a matter of time. At least 18-40 days are to be planned for the 2700 - 30000 sm.
The alternative is to charter a yacht in the Caribbean and is called "yacht charter". Among the most popular Caribbean yacht charter destinations are the BVI (British Virgin Islands), the USVI (US Virgin Islands), the Bahamas, St. Maarten and St. Barth, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Cuba and the French West Indies Martinique and Guadeloupe.
There are a large number of yacht charter companies with a reasonable selection of charter yachts. The charter brokers have a good reputation for reliability and service. We also recommend only newer yachts with good equipment.
The summer in the Caribbean can be very hot and it rains frequently. In winter, around Christmas time, the temperatures are better, it is drier and the climate is better to endure. The demand for a yacht charter in the Caribbean has risen strongly in recent years, so there is a good selection of large, spacious and stable sailing catamarans or sailing yachts for charter, with space for up to 12 guests or more. Also on almost all larger charter yachts there are extras for water sports as well as beach towels, bed linen etc., which are partly included in the price. They can be inquired at the charter broker. Our staff will be happy to advise you so that you can find the right charter yacht for your crew.
Information about the Caribbean yacht charter area
The Caribbean, with its different, many, large and small islands as they are known, are still the main locations for the best charter areas. The yacht charter customer chooses a suitable sailing area and books the charter yacht suitable for him. Climate and wind conditions in the Caribbean are ideal for charter customers and water sports enthusiasts. But there are also hurricanes. The hurricane season is from June to November, but not all Caribbean islands are within the hurricane belt. The best travel time for all charter areas is from mid-November to April. Due to the interest of charter customers in a charter trip especially in the Caribbean, the charter yachts are very quickly booked out in the high season from November to April and in this season the ports are quite crowded. Nevertheless you can enjoy a relaxing holiday, as there are countless small and large bays with fine sandy beaches, where you can anchor and enjoy the wonderful nature.
The distances between the islands can be very long, so that you can actually sail across larger expanses of the ocean. The sea can also be steeper between the islands, especially in winter, so an experienced charter crew is recommended.
St. Bart is the most beautiful island of the Leewards. It is a French island and the French influence is omnipresent. There, the relaxed, light French way of life prevails with good food and great shopping possibilities. St. Martin is half Dutch and half French. This results in an interesting mixture.
There is an excellent international airport, so that visitors from Europe or the United States can easily arrive by plane. It is the best place to start your charter holiday. Take a few days before you start your charter trip to see everything. Then of course we have the French islands Guadeloupe and Martinique, these islands are part of France. Here the French language is spoken and the visitors are mostly French or European. As you can imagine, the food is excellent, but the Euro is at the top here and things tend to get a little expensive.
Suggestions for yacht charter Caribbean
On the south route you come to the beautiful island of St. Lucia and then St. Vincent and the Grenadines and of course Grenada itself. Charter crews travel from north to south due to the favorable winds. One way charter trips are widespread. To the Grenadines belong the smaller islands Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Union, Carriacou and Tobago and end in Grenada. Navigation here is easiest in late spring, or summer and autumn. Although it is known that they occur, hurricanes in these latitudes are not so common in summer, so sailing yachts from the Northeast Caribbean pull in summer to escape the hurricane belt.
Arrival Information for a Yacht Charter in the Caribbean
For the Virgin Islands, it is usually best to fly to St. Thomas (STT) on the US Virgin Islands, which has an international airport served by many of the major US carriers such as American Airlines, Delta, Spirit Air and others. There is also a small airport in Tortola on the BVI called Beef Island Airport (EIS), which is served by SeaBourne Airlines and Cape Air from San Juan, Puerto Rico. For the Leeward Islands you should fly to St. Martin (SXM), which has a large international airport served by both US and European airlines. Antigua is an option for the Leeward Islands, but it is a bit off the beaten track. If your charter includes the Grenadines, you should plan to fly to St. Lucia (SLU) with an international airport and then on to St. Vincent, although some Grenadine charters can start directly from St. Lucia. .
For your charter trip in the Caribbean there are also 3 golden rules
Rule #1: Don't try to visit too many islands at once. Yes, it is a temptation, but don't do it.
Rule #2: Plan to sail no more than 5 to 6 hours a day - but no less. It is important to know that it is generally forbidden to sail at night.
Rule #3: Sail in the morning and use your afternoons and evenings to go ashore every day and eat delicious Caribbean food in a good exotic Caribbean restaurant on another island.
