The USVI combines luxury, leisure and activity with ease, making this the perfect location for a romantic getaway, group, or family vacations. With dive spots, hiking, bars and restaurants to discover, the USVI is the ideal place for your summer yacht charter!

Downtown Charlotte Amalie, the main port in the USVI.
 
Arrive the morning of your charter with embarkation around midday. The crew will meet or organize a taxi transfer from the airport to the yacht - you do not need to worry about anything! The airport is conveniently located around 15 minutes away from the harbour. Enjoy your drive through downtown Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas' capital! Arrive at your yacht with a Caribbean cocktail in hand - welcome to your home for the next week! The crew will organise the yacht to leave and head over to Water Island, located just off the coast of Charlotte Amalie. Settle at the anchorage and either relax onboard or head to the beach for a swim in the shallow turquoise waters. Fancy a drink? We suggest you head to Heidi’s Honeymoon Grill - a firm favourite in the yachting community! While you are on the beach, the chef will be busy creating a meal to remember on board your private yacht charter.

Wake up feeling fresh and rejuvenated ready for the day's adventures! Head on down to the aft deck, or sun deck off your crewed motor yacht for a freshly prepared breakfast served with a smile! After breakfast is finished and the last coffee drank, the yacht will cruise effortlessly through the beautiful serene waters onto Porpoise Rocks - a must-see snorkelling area! Carry on through the scenic Savanah passage as you travel west towards your overnight stop at Megan's Bay, voted one of the best beaches in the world! As the captain drops anchor, it's time for lunch! Prepared using local ingredients, sit back, and let the crew make a fuss over you! After lunch enjoy a long walk along the white sandy beaches or hike into the lush green woodlands that surround the anchorage. This area is perfect to lounge on the sundeck of your private yacht or on the beach! With a cocktail in hand, watch the sunset over the beautiful surroundings ready for dinner on board.

Set sail at a time that suits you - there is no rush! Finish breakfast with your family or friends and get that swimming costume back on for more relaxation or reading on the yacht! The captain will cruise through Hans Lollick and Little Hans Lollick - one of most scenic places in the USVI! The choice is yours today, lunch on board in either Sunsi Bay or Coki Beach or lunch on land! We recommend ZoZo’s at Lovango Beach for local fresh Caribbean cuisine! In the afternoon the crew will organise some scuba diving for those that wish to explore the underwater world - it is truly spectacular! You will dive or snorkel in Spring Bay.

Day 4: Waterlemon Cay

It's day four... the fun continues! The picturesque Waterlemon Cay is in the diary for today. On the way to Waterlemon Cay, stop for lunch in Maho Bay where you are guaranteed to see a turtle! The underwater nature of these islands is rich and colourful! Either get the crew to take you to shore or take your finds and enjoy a drink (or two!) at the Mago Crossroads to bask in the afternoon sun. If you ask the captain nicely he may go off and snare a few fresh lobsters for dinner! After all, Ocean to table cuisine is the best way to eat, especially on a luxury crewed yacht charter! Head over to Waterlemon Cay in the afternoon sun and be seduced by its beauty. Characterised by the exposed reef located close to Leinster Bay, Waterlemon Cay is considered one of the best snorkelling areas in the USVI - so dive in and explore the hidden world below! Lobsters for dinner awaits....
