Caribbean Luxury Yacht Charter Holidays

Offering beautiful pristine beaches, warm weather, interesting cultures and ocean laden with treasures, from tiny beach ridden coral atolls to substantial mountainous islands exuding rich and colourful cultures, the popular Caribbean charter destination covers an area which is famous for its beautiful waterways and islands. There is no better way to experience the Caribbean than on a crewed luxury yacht charter vacation.

The main Caribbean sailing season runs from November through to July. The Caribbean primary high season is from mid-December to March, when the winter escapees from North America and Europe arrive in their greatest numbers. The hurricane season is from late July to early October, although hurricanes are in general rare in the southern Caribbean. Unfortunately, they can be prevalent around Cuba, Bahamas and the east coast of the U.S. every few years.

As with many boating locations the Caribbean shoulder season, in this case from April to July, is also a great time to charter a boat as there are less shore based visitors, some lovely settled sunny weather, and warm yet steady breeze. The Caribbean is made up of many different multi-nation (and multi-cultural) volcanic islands. There are amazing sailing grounds stretching from Cuba and Jamaica in the west, through the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, The Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands, finishing with Trinidad and Tobago off the coast of Venezuela.

Other popular places to visit on a yacht charter include Antigua, St Barts, Anguilla, St Martin, The British Virgin Islands, The US Virgin Islands, the Grenadines and many more.
