Caribbean Charter: St. Barths, St. Martin, Anguilla and Beyond

Beautiful Waters of St. Martin

Enjoy a yacht charter itinerary in the Caribbean on a private charter yacht cruising between the islands of St. Martin, Anguilla, and St. Barths, and then cruise a little beyond to Saba, St. Kitts, Nevis and St. Eustatius.  Neither Saba or St. Eustatius have anchoring locations for an overnight stay, but St. Kitts and Nevis do.  Cruise on either a sailing yacht or motor yacht to St. Kitts and Nevis from St. Barths, stopping to explore the quaint little island of Saba, its own sovereign state, on the way.  And when returning back from St. Kitts and Nevis to St. Barths and St. Martin, stop in St. Eustatius, once a very busy and wealthy trading center in the Caribbean in the 1700’s.  The three islands of St. Martin, St. Barths, and Anguilla are fabulous, but mix in a little bit more on your crewed yacht charter adventure by including Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Kitts, and Nevis.

Luxury Yacht Charter, Caribbean

Start in St. Lucia, with good international airline flights in and end in St. Vincent, with international airline flights out, and cruise St. Vincent and the Grenadines on a luxury yacht charter in the southern part of the Caribbean Islands.  Included in this yacht charter itinerary starting in St. Lucia, are visits to St. Vincent, Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, and possibly the highlight of the area, the National Park of the Tobago Cays.  This is an area of Caribbean Islands where time has stood still, and life meanders on much as it did 100 years ago, except for the chic island of Mustique, where you never know whom you might see.  A nation of individual islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a lovely cruising location on a crewed yacht charter.

Post Hurricane Irma, both the U.S. and British Virgin Islands have returned to being the same lovely yacht charter cruising area as always, with great protected anchorages, pristine beaches, and beautiful blue green clear water with extraordinary coral gardens below.  Boarding to cruise the British Virgin Islands can be in either St. Thomas or Tortola.  Often air flights have a better schedule for flights to St. Thomas, but flights into Tortola bring you right into the epicenter of the British Virgin Islands to board your boat, and start your charter without the Customs requirements for clearance from the U.S. to the British Virgin Islands, that a charter start in St. Thomas requires.  Either way, besides a few blue tarp roofs left as a parting gift from Irma, this great cruising location is ready and waiting for the winter charter season.  Attached, is a yacht charter itinerary for post-Irma, from St. Thomas to St. Thomas for sailing  in the British Virgin Islands.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

This Caribbean yacht charter itinerary starts in St. Thomas, the most well-known of the U.S. Virgin Islands. With the most airline flights in and out, St. Thomas, is a duty free U.S. Territory.  St. Thomas, along with St. John, and St. Croix are the main islands of the U.S. Virgin Islands.  While beautiful in their own right, with lovely water and beautiful beaches, many feel that the U. S. Virgin Islands are the gateway to their nearby neighbor, the British Virgin Islands, otherwise known as the BVI’s.  Most one week charter itineraries out of St. Thomas visit St. John and then clear into the BVI’s, for the rest of the charter, before returning to St. John and then St. Thomas to disembark.  Following is a suggested one week charter itinerary following just that outline; starting and ending in St. Thomas with much of the yacht charter spent in the nearby British Virgin Islands.

Caribbean Cruising Itinerary, St. Martin, Anguilla, St. Barths

Enjoy a one week Caribbean cruising yacht charter visiting three distinctly different islands in the Caribbean, St. Martin, Anguilla, and St. Barths, on this suggested yacht charter itinerary.  International airports are located in either St. Martin or Anguilla, and either island is a great starting and ending location for a one week charter.  St. Martin is both French and Dutch, with chic shops and restaurants on the French side, and great duty free shopping and casinos on the Dutch side.  St. Barths is completely and unmistakably French: considered the San Tropez of the Caribbean.  Anguilla, is a sleepier island than both of her neighbors, with a more laid back nightlife, and beautiful beaches.  Visiting all three islands on a one week Caribbean cruising yacht charter, is a delightful experience of beautiful Caribbean water, great beaches, and interestingly different ambiance ashore.

Sunrise Tropical landscape sea on tropical sandy beachNow is the time to explore the lesser-known, but possibly more beautiful Southern Caribbean. This includes the stunning islands in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Northrop-Johnson Caribbean yacht charters is the perfect way to explore these lush islands that are full of unspoiled landscapes and unique cultures.

The Caribbean was impacted by hurricanes last year, most notably islands stretching from Barbuda to Puerto Rico. While hurricanes Maria and Irma wreaked havoc on territories such as Dominica, the British Virgin Islands, and Barbuda, they spared other areas of the Southern Caribbean.

Thankfully, great progress has been made in restoring the five-star resorts, luxury spas, and fine dining restaurants on the islands impacted by the hurricanes. In fact, according to the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association, about half of the 129 CHTA member hotels are open. By December of this year, all of the hotels are expected to reopen.

Sail to Grenada on the Spice Island breezes, as it is claimed, that on a cruising approach to Grenada, the Spice Island of the Caribbean, one can smell the scents of the various spices grown on the island wafting on the balmy breezes. Grenada is home to spice plantations where nutmeg, mace, allspice, cinnamon, cloves. turmeric, ginger, bay leaves, cocoa beans, and coffee beans are grown, harvested and processed for export around the world.  In fact, Grenada grows one third of the world’s production of nutmeg, a nut that is surrounded by a red hued casing that when ground is known as mace.  Grenada also figures as a large world producer of cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, and ginger. And all is grown on an island in the southern reaches of the Caribbean Sea that is all of 11 miles long.  With an international airport, Grenada is great island from which to begin or end a luxury yacht charter of the southern islands in the Caribbean.
