The U.S. Virgin Islands
While most catamarans and power yachts offer flexible pick up and drop off locations between the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands, they all have a home base marina and have a preferred pick up and drop off from St. Thomas, USVI. Please see the sample itinerary below to give you an idea of what to expect. This is particularly helpful if you’re arriving from the states and don’t have a passport to travel outside of U.S. waters!
All pricing is based on 7 nights at full board and includes a licensed crew, standard bar, operating expenses, cruising taxes and various water toys. For a more detailed explanation of what’s included, please see our Standard Caribbean Inclusions page located in our FAQ. Many yachts offer 4-6 night charters, sleep aboard rates, captain-only rates and are flexible on their meal plans. (Pricing for this upon request.) If there’s a specific yacht you’re interested in, let us know and we’ll confirm availability and pricing!
For the 2019/2020 charter season, we recommend the USVI/BVI’s for those looking to enjoy water activities the region became famous for 30 years ago. Fishing, diving and snorkeling sites are all in great condition. Many of your favorite beach bars are back up and running and eagerly look forward to your return!
Several yachts are very flexible on their pick up location, so you will see them appear in the search results for both the USVI and BVIs. They’re happy with either pick up location and their actual location is simply based on their charter schedule and availability.
