US Virgin Islands Yacht Charter, Caribbean

St Thomas, St John, St Croix

The US Virgin Islands are a nautical adventure for yacht charters. The typical Virgin Islands cruising area extends from St Thomas in the west to Virgin Gorda to the east. The islands are outlined by the Atlantic Ocean on their north side; the calm Caribbean Sea laps on their southern shores. Just outside of the immediate area of the Virgin Islands, are St Croix, Culebra and Anegada, all of which can be included in the US Virgin Islands yacht charter area, consisting of hundreds of islets and cays.

In the US Virgin Islands, you'll find the pristine beaches, sparkling waters and national parks distinctive of the Caribbean. The US Virgin Islands are culturally diverse, ethnically rich, and artistically vibrant. All this makes the islands ideal for a yacht charter vacation. The local population encompasses all from the peaceful Arawak and fierce Carib Indians, to the people of Africa, England, Holland, Denmark, Spain, France, India and the United States. The Virgins Islands are famous for year round cruising. The temperature ranges from 80's in winter to 90's in summer. In the winter, there's a slight wind shift to the north with wind speeds of 15 - 20 knots. In the summer, the winds shifts to east-southeast and blow around 10 - 15 knots. There is no real rainy season. Showers tend to be in short bursts with blue skies to follow. Yacht charters should be avoided through September and October, as the risk of a hurricane, could easily ruin your yacht charter vacation.

St Thomas's, Charlotte Amalie is one of the most popular cruise ports in the Caribbean. Red Hook Bay, on the eastern side of St Thomas, is main charter base as it is a convenient place to start your charter an exploration of the Virgin Islands. Houses of Danish influence sit scattered against the backdrop of emerald green hills and rows of charter yachts lay berthed along the waterfront.

In complete contrast, by virtue of its amazing nature is St John. Comprised of two-thirds national park, St John is arguably the most beautiful of the US Virgin Islands. Anchor in Hurricane Hole, surrounded by the National Park and few people. The rest of St John is blessed with endless white beaches and wildlife. Take a stroll along one of the walking tracks that lead to panoramic views of the emerald cays and sparkling waters.

St Croix is the largest of the US Virgin Islands, made up of two distinct towns - Christiansted and Frederiksted. Both towns have their own unique style. Between the two, they are well worth a visit. St Croix offers a distinct taste of Danish culture in Christiansted. The architectural quality and historical interest of Christiansted, has earned part of the town, the title of a "National Historic Site". From St Croix, visit one of the Caribbean's top dive spots - Buck Island.
