All about Yacht Rentals in the Caribbean
With over 7,000 islands — and more uninhabited islets — to explore by boat, a luxury yacht charter is the best way to truly experience the Caribbean. From charming fishing villages to vibrant rum bars, a Caribbean yacht charter opens a world of sailing possibilities. Famed for its calm and warm waters, the best way to navigate the area is through an island-hopping expedition. Here, you can get a feel for island life as you meander from port to port, taking in the breathtaking sunsets and dream-like seascapes. If you're not familiar with how to rent a yacht, look no further.
Where more luxurious, where more utopian, where more tranquil, than the Caribbean? Yacht rentals in the Caribbean are one of our most popular charter vessels in this area, and for good reason, too. Where else can you lie in paradise with wonderfully warm weather and picture perfect panoramic views while discovering swimming pigs, colourful iguanas and reptiles, as well as other beautiful sea life swimming nearby in the transparent water.

Choosing the Perfect Route
A luxury skippered yacht charter in the Caribbean allows you to sit back and relax as you sail from one contrasting island to another. You can plan your itinerary based entirely on your tastes, with everything from tranquil, secluded beaches allowing peace of mind to fast-paced watersports offering a true adrenaline rush. Whatever kind of holiday you decide on, your yacht will be your pampered sanctuary. You decide the pace and you decide the route.
Island-hopping in the Caribbean
And what a range of routes to choose from when you rent a yacht with a skipper for a week! The Virgin Islands, Leeward Islands, Grenadines, St Lucia, St Martin, Antigua and — of course — the Bahamas all offer a varied landscape of pristine natural parks, lush forested mountain landscapes and bustling marinas serving the world's best seafood. As a veritable yachting playground, you'll want to pick your base in the Caribbean and take it slow. A charter to the Lesser Antilles, for instance, may see you sailing from St Lucia to the Grenadines, stopping off at coral reefs, waterfalls and famed shipwrecks. The Bahamas, too, offers plenty of diving opportunities, with Abacos and Exumas containing some of the most beautiful marine parks in the world.

Climate and Sailing Conditions in the Caribbean
Christmas and Thanksgiving are both popular time of year for yacht charter with family and friends. However, our most preferable time of year is early summer in the months from March to June. The flowers and plants are in bloom, the wildlife is tranquil and content with the pleasant weather conditions and calm winds.
Hurricane season from August to September is not advisable for sailing in many parts of the Caribbean.
