Leeward Islands Yacht Charter, Caribbean

Antigua and Barbuda, AnguillaSt Barts, St Kitts & Nevis, St Martin or St Maarten, Guadeloupe

A yacht charter vacation in the Leeward Islands, often known as the Lesser Antilles, will exceed expectations. This is a yachtsman's paradise. These islands sit half way down the eastern Caribbean chain, beginning with Nevis, St Kitts, St Bart’s and St Maartin in the north, Antigua and Barbuda in the middle and the islands of Montserrat and Guadeloupe to the south. Sailing throughout the Leeward Islands, you'll find an intriguing blend of cultures. Les Saintes holds a taste of France, a quaint Dutch influence is prevalent in the southern parts of St Maartin, and Antigua of course, is unmistakably British. A yacht charter holiday in the Leeward Islands will offer you everything - majestic tropical landscapes, powdery white beaches, sparkling waters, the exotic cuisine of St Maartin and the lively nightlife of Antigua. The nature lover will not be disappointed with the beauty of St. Kitts and Nevis. The surreal atmosphere on these northern islands is a naturally intoxicating blend of sunshine, fresh sea air and rich vegetation. Both islands are crowned with spectacular cloud-ringed peaks covered with tropical forests and brilliant flowers.

St Kitts and Nevis in the Caribbean

Midway down the Leeward Islands, you'll find the thriving core of Antigua, a major yacht charter base. Antigua is the image of a British colony set amongst a tropical paradise. Due to the islands natural defences, the British choose Antigua as its naval stronghold in the Caribbean, over two hundred years ago. Antigua, being the largest of the British Leeward Islands had warm, steady winds, a complex coastline of safe harbors, and a protective, nearly unbroken wall of coral reef. Today, charter boats flock to Antigua for the same reasons. If you tire of the constant parties in Antigua, take a day sail over to Barbuda for some peace and tranquillity. Commercially, Barbuda is relatively unscathed, which means secluded beaches and quiet anchorages, are still a definite possibility.

On the southern tip of the Leeward Islands, constant easterly trade winds provide some magnificent open water sailing. Cruise amongst some of the most undeveloped islands in the Caribbean - Iles des Saintes, Marie Galante and Dominica. A yacht charter in the Leeward Islands can offer you everything from spectacular scenery, superb diving, delicious cuisine, peace and tranquillity or lively entertainment.

The Leeward Islands yacht charter season runs from November through to July. The Caribbean's primary high season is from mid-December to March, when North Americans and Europeans come in their greats numbers, escaping the winter. The hurricane season is from late July to early October. Although hurricanes are generally rare, this is still the least expensive time for chartering in the Caribbean and there are some really good deals available - however, as well as running the risk of storms, this time of year also tends to be associated with lighter (or non-existent) winds.

As one of the most famous yacht charter grounds in the Caribbean the Leeward Islands offer all the main types of yacht charter such as motor, sailing, bareboat charter, skippered, crewed yachts, catamaran, power boat, sailboat, luxury yachts and off-course the ever increasing super yacht charter.

 St Kitts and Nevis - Beach

Anguilla Yacht Charter – Offers natural beauty and a more relaxed atmosphere with the Island being a generally less developed Caribbean charter location, and one of the region's best kept secrets. Anguilla is one of the northern most Islands in the Leeward chain of the Caribbean Sea.

Antigua Yacht Charter Located half way down the Leeward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean chain, Antigua is a hive of the yacht charter activity. Most yacht charters will begin with the glistening beaches and highlife of Antigua, before sailing northwest toward the Virgin Islands or south toward the Windward Islands. This British based colony still remains a crossroad for sailing yachts heading up and down the archipelago of the Greater and Lesser Antilles.

Barbuda Yacht Charter - Barbuda Island is also known as the sister island of Antigua, which is just about 25 kms away.

St Bart’s Yacht Charter - Visitors to St Barts in the northeast Caribbean are predominantly of the upscale crowd. Yacht owners and yacht charterer come to this famous Caribbean Island with a view to relaxation on white-sand beaches, entertainment in clubs and restaurants and to cruise through the clear blue waters. High-end shopping and dining at quality restaurants is very well established. Increasingly a vibrant nightlife industry is also caters to those luxury yacht guests who wish to celebrate well after the sun goes down.

St Kitts & Nevis yacht Charter - St Kitts is famous for its historical, cultural and architectural significance and along with Nevis it is called the 'Secret Caribbean'. These unspoilt, tropical islands are among the most captivating and picturesque in all the Caribbean and a paradise for nature lovers because the preservation of the natural ecosystems has been a priority.

St Martin or St Maarten Yacht Charter - The St Maarten or St Martin yacht charter area can only be described as a tropical paradise. With a unique blend of European sophistication and Caribbean hospitality, St Martin is an intriguing Caribbean delight. St Martin is the smallest landmass ever to be divided between two nations. The French and the Dutch can lay equal claim to these majestic green peaks, stunning sandy beaches and sparkling waters.

Guadeloupe Yacht Charter - Guadeloupe is a known charter destination because it offers wonderful relaxed tranquility and natural beauty as compared to its more famous and busier neighboring Caribbean Islands.
