Caribbean Yacht Carter represents: turquoise water, endless long white sandy beaches, lined with high palm trees, evergreen rainforests, flat coral islands, colourful wooden houses, constructed in the monumental confectionary style, and then there is the special joy of life of the locals. One of the most attractive travel destinations for a yacht charter, as a sailor you will appreciate the constant trade wind from December to May, then it’s time for exchanging the mulled wine for Cuba Libre. The Caribbean is a region in the western, tropical part of the Atlantic Ocean north of the equator and consists of the Caribbean Sea and the arch of the islands and island groups located over there, called the West Indies. In the Caribbean, it is pleasantly warm all year round; the most popular and best travel time for a yacht charter holiday is from November to April, because during this time the temperatures are around 26 degrees and it‘s almost not raining at all. Just the islands of the Lesser Antilles are an attractive travel destination during the whole year because these islands are outside the hurricane zone. Even during the winter, the water temperature in the Caribbean is inviting with pleasant 26 degrees.
A yacht charter with an indescribable exotic sailing backdrop, especially for Caribbean beginners, expects the sailors in the Lesser Antilles. An arc with a length of almost 500 kilometres with high volcanic islands, evergreen rainforests, nature in its purest form, flat coral islands, turquoise waters, endless long sandy beaches, cliffs breaking the waves, colonial style architecture and colourful houses like out of a picture book, rum, reggae Music, the magnificent Creole cuisine and then the special joy of life of the local people... The Caribbean is a paradise, above all for enjoying the freedom during a yacht charter.
There are so many Caribbean islands, that even returnees will discover more and more new and indescribable landscapes. A highly recommended yacht charter leads along the southern Lesser Antilles, starting at the French island of Martinique to the Grenadines. Paradise begins in the Grenadines. The 32 partly uninhabited islands offer a mini archipelago with offshore reefs. Over here, diving and snorkelling is very popular, you will see turtles, rays, colourful fishes or even dolphins. And after swimming, you just relax under a palm tree at one of the authentic, heavenly Caribbean beaches. Mayreau's wind-protected Salt Whistle Bay is one of the best anchorages in the region and while we are enjoying our luxury yacht, the local fishermen are showing up with their small boats to provide us with freshly caught lobsters.
Another highlight during your Caribbean yacht charter are the Tobago Cays, it’s just amazing to swim with turtles in this unreal light blue lagoon. The underwater world in this area is simply unique, huge starfishes, corals and an infinite number of fishes of all sizes and colours are to be admired over here.
Sandy Island is considered one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Grenadines, Sandy Island, like the name already says, a small sandy island with palm trees and funny pelicans. And then there's the luxurious private island of Mustique, favourite among others by David Bowie and Robert de Niro. Every now and then you meet one of the rich and beautiful people in ‘Basil’s Bar’, where you should enjoy a authentic rum sundowner, because over here you will find that real, special Caribbean feeling.
Martinique is one of the many shining jewels of the French Caribbean and offers the classic Caribbean package, magnificent white sandy beaches on the south coast and black sand on the north coast. Secluded bays for snorkelling, coral reefs, unspoiled fishing villages, hot springs, lush rainforest, rugged mountain peaks and exotic flowers and fruits are waiting for you at this stunning Island. A popular diving spot off the coast of Martinique is the Rocher du Diamant rock, located in the southwest, which rises 176 meters from the sea and whose underwater world features impressive caves and a diverse flora and fauna. Divers are attracted to the bay of Anses D’Arlet or Pointe Burgos where many turtles are living. Discover the stunning, natural beauties of Martinique during a shore excursion, don’t miss to explore the volcanic Mont Pelée at 1.400 meters, the highest mountain on the island. Or marvel at the Gorges de la Falaise waterfall, just in the middle of the tropical rainforest.
A yacht charter in the Caribbean is just like sailing in paradise, especially for those who have sailed almost anywhere in the world. Above all, at this point one should not forget Cuba. On the south coast of Cuba you will find this fantastic sailing area of 2.500 nautical miles, enabling yacht vacationers to take a secluded trip. The famous 'Cayos' are among the absolute highlights of this sailing area where you can admire turtles, flamingos, lobsters and countless species of fish and corals.
Cuba is with a length of about 1.200 kilometres the largest island of the Caribbean. Kuba is really quaint and picturesque and around the elongated island state we will find many sailing areas, especially for the experienced skippers, because Cuba is one of the most complicated sailing areas.
Cuba is a very special location for a yacht charter in the Caribbean. Whether Havana with its colourful, partly ancient buildings, the vintage cars and the happy people, or the endless white sandy beaches of the Cayos, the turquoise waters of the coral reefs with the beautiful underwater world. The archipelago consists of hundreds of small islands, emerged by coral reefs. There is hardly any infrastructure with larger ports, exclusive gastronomy and marinas. During the yacht charter you will be spoiled by lonely bays, rustic beach bars and dreamlike, partly deserted beaches. And the local fishermen are even delivering fresh fish and seafood directly to the boat.
The ancient seaport of Cienfuegos is located on the south coast of Cuba. Its picturesque location at the lagoon is connected by a narrow entrance to the sea; Cienfuegos is not only the ideal starting port for a yacht charter in the Caribbean, but also invites to stroll on the wide boulevards. From here, you can either start your yacht charter in direction west, into the island world of the Cayos, or you are sailing to the east, direction Trinidad. Cayo Largo is a tiny Island in the middle of the Caribbean, known for its endless sandy beaches; with a little luck you can watch the sea turtles laying their eggs. The largest island next to Cuba, the Isla de la Juventud, the island of the youth, is a very popular travel destination in this sailing area.
