US Virgin Islands Yacht Charters

The US Virgin Islands dot a turquoise coloured stretch of ocean that is considered to be among the most sheltered waters in the Caribbean Sea. Formally the Dutch West Indies, the islands were sold by Denmark to the United States in 1916 for $US25 million in gold.

There are three main islands – St Thomas, St Croix and St John – and beyond these there are hundreds of tempting small islands and cays, many uninhabited, waiting to be discovered by you and your friends while on your luxury charter yacht adventure in the Caribbean. This is a region that provides the complete spectrum of opportunities – from the vibrant entertainment and nightlife to be found on St Thomas, through to the other extreme of peaceful serenity in a secluded bay amid the unspoiled beauty of St John. It is all there to be enjoyed, and The Luxury Charter Yacht Group’s expertise will ensure you indulge in your every desire.

St Thomas

This active cruise ship destination blends a busy city lifestyle with Caribbean informality, panache and scenic beauty – from ribbons of golden sand beaches to hills of volcanic origins that are flooded with canopies of green. While the island measures a mere 32 square miles, it provides ample diversity when it comes to activities to be sampled and enjoyed: duty-free shopping; visit the world’s second-oldest synagogue; take a Skyride trip to a hilltop 700-feet up and enjoy panoramic views of St Thomas and surrounding islands; play golf, or as most people aboard luxury charter yachts do, escape to any one of the island’s 44 picturesque and sandy beaches. In short, from diving on a coral reef to delightful dining on local delicacies in the US Virgin Island’s capital, Charlotte Amalie, St Thomas has it all.

St John

It might be only four miles from St Thomas, but St John is a world away in difference. This is a destination where you are surrounded by nature: 67 per cent of the 20 square mile island is unspoiled national park. The scenery is superb and the opportunity to escape the humdrum of everyday life exceptional. The island’s jagged volcanic peaks are enveloped by a dense green canopy of rainforest, and the beaches of fine golden sand are lapped by warm tropical waters which reflect the cobalt blue of a near cloudless sky. Yet, while this is an un-commercialised paradise you can still have your luxury charter yacht sail into Cruz Bay so you can explore the up-market shopping opportunities and restaurants at Mongoose Junction. St John is the Caribbean destination of desire for many charter yacht guests … no high-rise buildings, no cruise ship docks, and no noisy jet airports.

St Croix

St Croix’s history is as fascinating and colourful as the magnificent scenery and tranquil surroundings that await you when you cruise into these waters aboard your luxury charter yacht. Its past is an amalgam of influence over centuries by Spain, Great Britain, the Netherlands, France, the Knights of Malta, Denmark and the United States, and as a consequence it is a unique destination in this part of paradise. Intriguingly, this island presents visitors with the widest of opportunities to indulge – from fine dining downtown, a casino, historic residences and casual beachfront bars, to breathtaking and secluded bays where your footprints are the only ones on the golden sand. Placid turquoise waters, vivid blue skies and bold hills covered by dense and dark green forests, complete this picture-perfect setting. This is a place you must consider when planning any a luxury charter yacht cruise in the Caribbean.
