Caribbean Crewed Yacht Charter
Enjoy the vacation of a lifetime - throughout the winter months our yachts are available for Crewed Caribbean Yacht Charter.
This year from the 20th Dec to early May cruises from Rodney Bay in St. Lucia will take you either South towards Grenada or North towards Antigua.
For those taking "Individual Cabin" cruises the itinerary will be set in discussion with the skipper but if you are chartering the whole boat then you can set the itinerary yourselves restricted only by time available.
In mid April the cruise will take you one way to Antigua with the opportunity to participate or simply join in the party that is Antigua Race Week.
Caribbean Crewed Yacht Charters offer you the freedom to explore the Caribbean paradise at a relaxed pace visiting island hideaways that the cruise ships simply can’t reach and at times when the crowds have moved on.
You will have the opportunity to see the islands and participate in the local activities both by day and by night.
Indulge yourselves with a professional skipper, your personal hostess / chef to prepare all your meals and your own private yacht with its professional crew ensuring that your every need is accommodated in both sailing and the gastronomic delights – it’s how the Caribbean was meant to be enjoyed.
The Cruising Areas
St.Lucia towards Grenada
This passage takes you South towards the Spice Island of Grenada with the opportunity to call at destinations such as Marigot Bay or the Pirate Stronghold of Jack Sparrow, captain of the Black Pearl at Wallilabou Bay where you will recognise the harbour from the films.
From here your cruise can take you to the beautiful Port Elizabeth Bay in Bequia. Further south you reach the Grenadines maybe stopping for lunch at the Tobago Cays then on to Union Island and Sandy Island with its wonderful Snorkelling finally arriving at the idyllic Clarkes Court Bay Marina on Grenada.
St.Lucia towards Antigua
The passage north offers the opportunity of visiting the Islands of Martinique, Dominica and the beautiful French Isles Des Saintes, location of Jacques Cousteau’s Marine Park.
From here the journey north can take you to the wonderful “Butterfly Island” of Guadeloupe with an overnight anchorage in the unforgettable bays near Deshaies village before arriving at Antigua and the historic Nelsons Dock Yard where you will walk in the footsteps of Admiral Nelson.
It is easy to imagine the Dock Yard and bay outside crowded with the Square Riggers of Nelsons time all a bustle taking on stores for their upcoming voyages around the Caribbean or maybe for passage back to England.
