Key Highlights:

  • This is the idyllic, swaying palm trees, white sand, turquoise sea destination
  • Year-round warmth, in the sun and in the sea
  • Huge range of islands and cultures mean there is something for everyone

Insider Info:

April and May can be great months to visit – good weather, not so busy - although choice of yachts will diminish as many of the charter fleet will have left for the Mediterranean or other summer destinations.

The Caribbean benefits from plenty of wind and waves – excellent for sailing. You’ll find a good proportion of sailing yachts among the charter fleet here and there are some great regattas that you might wish to target.

  • St Barths Bucket – superyacht Regatta – March
  • Antigua Classic – late April

Conversely, if you, or your guests are not great sailors, and don’t enjoy choppy conditions, it’s worth chartering a motoryacht with stabilisers (both underway and at anchor). Alternatively, be brave and opt for a sailing yacht – their deep keels and sails means they tend to cut through the surf rather than roll across it.

Islands as diverse as St Lucia, Barbados and Antigua have plenty of on-shore restaurants and resorts. For a more exclusive, get away from it all vacation, head to the Grenadines, where exotic Mustique and Bequia are beguiling and remote.

Maybe you love to dance – why not learn to Salsa in Cuba? Nature lovers will enjoy heading south to the Leeward Antilles where you’ll find flamingos and parrots from nearby South America…

A charter to the Caribbean is not always about a simple coastal cruise- rather it is about the journey – your voyage, as you cover many sea miles hopping from island to island.

More details:

The Caribbean often conjures up images of swaying palms, rum punch, white sandy beaches and bass-heavy music. But it is so much more: this archipelago covers a huge area and vast array of cultures, landscapes and styles. With influences from Africa, Spain, France, the UK, the Netherlands, Sweden, America and South America you’ll find a host of languages and customs to experience. Depending on what your preferences are – you’ll be sure to find your very own slice of paradise.

If you want nightlife and casinos, then the US Virgin Islands could be just the trick; the British Virgin Islands nearby have a more ‘rum in a hammock’ vibe.

Best time to visit:

The Caribbean covers a vast area – more than 1 million square miles of sea - so climate does vary – being generally hotter to the South. But year-round temperatures are always warm.

The cooler ‘winter’ around January will see daytime temperatures of 25-30˚C, with the wetter summer from 28-33˚C.

High season tends to be November-March, when it is drier and there is no risk from hurricanes (hurricane season runs from 1 June to 30 November – except for the Leeward Antilles which are just outside the hurricane zone.)
