With so many islands to choose from, how do you go about selecting a region to sail for your vacation? An all inclusive yacht charter in the Caribbean gives you a lot of options. While our home base is in the US Virgin Islands (and for good reason!), we can assist you in booking a charter wherever you’d like to visit. Here are a few of the most popular sailing regions to choose from, and what to consider.
All Inclusive Yacht Charter Caribbean: Regions
Islas Vírgenes Americanas
This area consists of St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix. No passport is required for American citizens, and travel to and from is easy through the STT airport. There are many small islands and cays to hike, snorkel, and explore. St. Thomas and St. John are close to one another, with incredible shopping, beach bars, and restaurants throughout. St. Croix is a slightly longer sail away (which means visiting here is weather-dependent), with an even more laidback vibe.
Spanish Virgin Islands
This area consists of the small islands and cays off of Puerto Rico including Vieques and Culebra. No passport is required for American citizens, and travel to and from is easy through the SJU airport. These islands have an off-the-beaten-path feel, never crowded with tons of untouched nature for your adventures.
British Virgin Islands
This area consists of many small islands and cays, with the largest/most visited being Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke. A passport is required for everyone entering, including British citizens. Yacht charters here are easiest when they begin in the neighboring US Virgin Islands, so guests are able to fly in and out of the STT airport on St. Thomas, which is cheaper with more options in comparison to flying into the BVI. The BVI is home to many iconic beach bars, snorkel + diving sites, and incomparable beaches.
This area consists of many small islands in between the larger islands of St. Vincent and Grenada. A passport is required to enter. Travel here can be accomplished through either the SVD or the GND airports. This island chain is incredibly picturesque and particularly great to visit during the summer/fall months, as they are located outside the hurricane belt. These islands are much quieter and less developed than the other regions, perfect for those looking for a serene escape.
This area consists of a large chain of islands and cays including familiar favorites such as Abaco, Bimini, Eleuthera, Harbour Island, and more. Travel here is easy due to its close proximity to Miami through a number of airports. There are seemingly endless options here. All of the islands in this region are flat (so no hiking here) which means long stretches of beaches and aqua waters. This is also a great region for speciality diving such as shark diving and treasure hunting.
