Crewed Yacht Charter Vacations in the U.S. Virgin Islands

The USVI will reopen to tourism in June with a new yacht charter sailing itinerary!

As former crew & owners of a 72' yacht based in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, we always wondered why charter guests thought they had to go to the neighboring British Virgin Islands for their vacations. Yes, the islands in the BVI are great but it's possible they are going to be closed to tourism until September which is the middle of hurricane season! This means that charter yachts are not allowed to bring guests to the BVI until then. But we have a plan!

Ultimately the turquoise water, white beaches, fun things to do and amazing island culture are great no matter whether you are in the USVI or the BVI! The American crews who are chartering the catamarans in this video are based in the USVI. They have put together a fun sailing vacation itinerary exploring St. Thomas, St. John, St. Croix and the quaint, uninhabited outer islands of the U.S. Virgin Islands. Interested? Watch this new VIDEO! :)

The new normal in travel will focus on 3 new golden rules: Health, Sanitation and Safety. The crewed charter vacation yachts are adhering to strict new sanitation standards along with best health and safety practices. This safe & luxurious travel environment will keep you and those you love in a protective bubble while getting to island hop to deserted beaches and explore far corners of the USVI.

While our concept of a vacation has changed, it’s not a bad thing. When we finally blow away the cobwebs of coronavirus confinement, we’ll have more gratitude for the simple pleasure of feeling the sun & wind on our skin while sitting on the bow of a yacht. High density crowded beaches are a thing of the past as people look forward to vacations that are more isolated by nature. This is where a private yacht charter fits in perfectly. As CYBA yacht charter brokers, we are right here with you, confident, optimistic and hopeful to plan fun yacht charter retreats that are focused on outdoor pursuits that celebrate nature, wellbeing, and tranquility.

The hurricanes of 2017 brought a stop to Intensive fishing in the Caribbean to supply the tourism industry. By winter of that year, we witnessed an explosion of life in the sea. Lobsters repopulated the coral reefs, along with groupers, snappers, and jackfish filling the Caves at Norman Island, and the less visited outer areas, and lagoons. This new pause in worldwide travel has been like 'resetting' the ecosystem…yet again! At the reopening of the borders we will offer to our clients a fresh, new outlook of sea life, teaming with life.

Flights in June to the U.S. Virgin Islands:

American Airlines: Daily service from Miami on June 5. Currently they are flying to St. Thomas 5-6 times a week. Delta: Daily service from Atlanta or New York until July 2 and July 3 respectively. United: Flights from Newark to St. Thomas, and a flight between Washington DC on seven days in June. Spirit Airlines: Ft. Lauderdale to St. Thomas route on Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays only for the month of June. JetBlue: They have scaled their flights back but there is a nonstop flight regularly from San Juan to St. Thomas. We'd like to thank all our partners for helping to put in place as flexible conditions as possible to help and accommodate and to encourage clients to book for the future. Newly written yacht charter contracts will allow for unexpected travel restrictions with an option to rebook if necessary within a specified time frame. Life goes on and there will be something to look forward to on the “other side”. Thanks to the cooperation of our partners we strive to offer a wide range of yacht charter options and more flexible charter conditions.

About Us:

We're former charter crew team, Captain, Chef and owners of an Award-winning 72' sailing yacht 18 years. With over 300 charters in our logbook, we currently represent privately crewed Caribbean sailing luxury yacht charters as professional CYBA yacht charter brokers.

We're happy to work together as a team to promote charter vacation yachts offering modern conveniences & unlimited pleasure.

What should you expect from a luxury crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean?

It's "ALL about you, ALL the time" onboard a privately crewed charter boat! It's surprisingly affordable too! Far away from overcrowded cruise ships, all-inclusive charter yachts allow you to explore some of the Caribbean’s most exclusive areas and delight in the natural, unspoiled beauty of secluded islands, hidden coves, and secret dive sites. Sail to a nearby island every day & snorkel around your own private beaches; enjoy your favorite cocktail while watching the sunset on your own private yacht; indulge yourself with 5-star gourmet cuisine that is prepared with Caribbean flair and served in the most beautiful surroundings you could ever imagine. We love matching the right crew & yacht with you!

4. We attend multiple charter yacht industry shows in the Caribbean and Mediterranean, go aboard each of the yachts, meet the crews, attend association meetings and seminars.
