Virgin Islands yacht charters
The Virgin Islands, which consist of the United States Virgin Islands (USVI) and the British Virgin Islands (BVI), are located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. They are at the top of the Caribbean Islands and extend approximately 60 miles, beginning off the coast of Florida and reaching all the way to South America. The Islands are around 45 miles east of Puerto Rico and include hundreds of islands and cays.
The Virgin Islands are home to some of the best sailing in the world. Yacht charter guests enjoy the sunny weather, protected moorings, proximity of islands, and beautiful views. Whether you’re enjoying a romantic honeymoon charter for two or a group vacation with friends, the Virgin Islands are the perfect locale for yacht charters.
- British Virgin Islands : The British Virgin Islands include about 60 islands and cays situated in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. The main islands are Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke; however yacht charter guests can explore over fifty smaller islands and cays, most of which are uninhabited.
- US Virgin Islands : Two islands are usually included in a Virgin Islands charter - St Thomas which is the port of choice for many charter guests because of the frequent and inexpensive flights, and St John which is known for its beauty and great snorkeling spots.
There are non-stop flights directly to St. Thomas from the US mainland, and connecting flights both to St. Thomas and the BVI. The Cyril E. King Airport is on St. Thomas while the BVI’s main airport is the Terrence B. Lettsome Airport on Tortola. Most flights into the USVI make connections in San Juan, Puerto Rico, while connections to the BVI vary and may connect in St. Thomas, Antigua, St. Kitts, or St. Maarten.
All of the major islands throughout the Virgin Islands provide marinas, anchorage sites, and moorings to accommodate your private yacht charter.
The Virgin Islands are in a state of constant summer, with ideal weather and temperatures year round. With very little change in seasons, you and your yacht charter guests can visit virtually year-round and still expect sunshine, warm temperatures, and cooling breezes.
The hottest months are June through August, when charter guests can expect temperatures in the mid-80s, while December, January, and February are known for cooler weather, with temps in the upper 70s.
