The breathtaking islands of the Caribbean and the Bahamas have long been considered the world’s most popular yachting destination. Easy to reach and a pleasure to explore, this mecca for anyone who dreams of turquoise waters, delectable seafood, an abundance of fun water sports and endless romance on his/her Caribbean yacht vacations. Perfect for first-time and experienced sailors, this destination offers an array of attractions and activities and this is what makes it such a revered luxury Caribbean sailing vacation spot.

Keep in mind that a yacht charter offers an indepth and intimate itinerary of a local destination. Unlike a cruise ship that sails from San Juan to Grenada in back in a week’s time, yachts offer a leisurely pace sailing to many places that the big ships cannot get to. Following are just a few of the best Bahamas and Caribbean highlights:

U.S. and British Virgin Islands

The US and British Virgin are the most popular destination for Caribbean yacht vacations. The closeness of the islands and the calmness of the seas make it the ideal Caribbean sailing vacation destination for first time charterers as well as families.

The USVIs offer nighttime excitement, luxury resorts, top-notch restaurants, extraordinary diving and snorkeling, and pristine national parks. The BVI, on the other hand, still boasts the same unspoiled nature yet are far less commercialized and developed, so they offer a much more laid-back sailing adventure during your luxury yacht vacations in Caribbean. Because you’re in the Caribbean, needless to say, you’ll find a nearly infinite number of stellar beaches and perfect aquamarine waters no matter where you go.

Leeward Islands

With world-renowned hot spots like St. Maarten, Anguilla, St. Barth’s, Barbuda and Antigua, the Leeward Islands are arguably the most cosmopolitan of all the Caribbean yacht vacations' spots, with the cultural flair of its numerous colonizers, including France, Holland and the UK, permeated into the local culture, heritage and cuisine. From world-class Michelin-starred restaurants, to championship golf courses, luxury spas and plenty of pristine marine reserves brimming with vibrant underwater life, the Leewards offer you the very best of a Caribbean yacht vacations experience.

Windward Islands - St Vincent and the Grenadines

This modest archipelago of 30-odd islands and cays were the Caribbean’s most hidden gem. St Vincent and the Grenadines still remain, despite their popularity, some of the least visited islets in the entire region. A hub of eco-tourism and nature-rich escapism, St Vincent and the Grenadines are a nature-lover’s paradise. One only need cast their eyes on the Tobago Cays to agree. These five uninhabited isles are tropical perfection, with emerald waters and an ocean-full of colorful fish and coral attracting snorkelers and divers on their Caribbean sailing vacation from all over the world. In the Grenadines, you will also find a few exclusive islands, home to elegant resorts and restaurants, making it an ideal choice for groups of friends or families who want to taste a variety of Caribbean spices during their Caribbean yacht vacations. The ideal weeklong itinerary for sailing yachts or catamarans is to cast off on a one-way itinerary from St. Vincent to Union Island.

Cuba

Once forbidden to U.S travelers, Cuba’s doors are now open for yacht charter vacations. Savor the old world charm of Havana with its vintage cars, pulsating rhythms, historic cites and welcoming people. Or escape to the south side of the island for pristine diving on some of the world’s most untouched reefs.

Bahamas

The Bahamas are a pristine yacht charter destination with over 700 islands and a variety of itinerary possibilities in a 100,000 square mile cruising area. Although proximate to the U.S., once you set sail from Nassau or Marsh Harbor you feel miles from nowhere. You can be the first one to make footprints in the sand every day. Often, your yacht is the only one in the anchorage. The coral reefs are teeming with a kaleidoscope of fish. The sport fishing is world class, and the beaches are unspoiled and inviting. A Bahamas yacht charter is a snorkeling, diving and scuba paradise on your Caribbean sailing vacations.

Turks and Caicos

Unspoiled by tourism, this chain of forty islands (only eight are inhabited), boasts mile after mile of untouched beaches, breathtaking sapphire waters and the third largest coral reef on earth. Providenciales is continuously honored by Conde Naste as having one of the best beaches the world . And when you’ve had enough surf and sand, can enjoy Its championship golf course, casino, shopping and fine restaurants.

And for those of you who have heard of the Antilles, this refers to the islands of the eastern Caribbean. The Greater Antilles are the islands of Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and Hispaniola. The Lesser Antilles refers to the Virgin Islands, the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands.

The Virgin Islands are our premier yacht charter destination for more reasons than we could ever list. Absolutely perfect year-round temperatures, pristine beaches, a warm and amiable culture and all the unspoiled nature you could ever wish for. They all combine to make this an easy and totally unforgettable sailing destination.

Comprised by three island clusters, namely the British, U.S. and Spanish Virgin Islands, the Virgins offer an array of unique and complementing attractions. Each distinct corner of the Virgin Islands is infused with its own eclectic cultural and historical flavor. Although sparkling beaches, verdant wilderness, and crystal clear waters are bountiful on all of them, each area has its own distinct vibe and appeal.

Whether you love to play in the sun and surf, indulge in a stint of shopping or sightseeing, or even channel your inner seafaring explorer to discover uncharted coves, you’ll find a cluster of Virgin Islands that’s just right for you.

Virgin Islands yacht charters are perfection. Pure and simple.

The most popular yacht charter destination of all, the British Virgin Islands offer a heavenly tropical getaway merely hours from home. Ideal for your first stint aboard a luxury yacht charter, the BVIs offer the largest selection of yachts, calm waters, short sailing distances, and a kaleidoscope of attractions. You’ll be amazed at just how much you can see, do, play, experience, eat, and enjoy in a 7-day charter trip. Moreover, no matter how many times you sail the BVIs, you’ll always find new uncharted territories. Uninhabited islands hidden around secret corners, deserted coves, and untouched beaches where your footprints have no company.

The British Virgin Islands is where you’ll want to head to discover the authentic Caribbean and escape the hectic pace of modern life. There are only a few fancy resorts here, no brand name chain restaurants (unless you count Pusser’s Rum), and the nightlife is barefoot in the sand with some steel pan and reggae rhythms. If it’s a casual “no need to dress up” sailing vacation you crave, then the BVI is the spot for you. And besides…all the luxury you’ll ever need will be onboard your yacht!

Swim ashore to the crystalline sands of Jost Van Dyke’s beaches, explore the shore-side grottos at The Baths on Virgin Gorda, savor the taste of freshly harvested lobster on Anegada, “jump up” at Foxy’s, paddle in a secluded cove and get lost in the paradise that is so revered by all our yacht charter guests. And if you love your beaches pure – without boardwalks, beach clubs, or excessive crowds – then you’ll fall in love with the BVI. On land you’ll find a few charming villages, walking trails, spas, and sundrenched Mother Nature. Underwater is where the action happens, with fantastic diving and snorkeling options on offer daily.

The U.S. corner of the Virgin Islands is a little more commercialized than its British sister and offers a wider collection of shopping and dining options – as well as your typical onshore attractions like ziplines, golf, and island tours. At the same time, it still retains that Caribbean laid-back vibe that you’ll no doubt cherish. St. Thomas is a duty free shopping mecca with its historic cobbled streets along the harbor’s edge. Most of our guests cast off from St. Thomas as it has easy air access and is only about ten miles from the BVI. Virgin Islands yacht charter itineraries can include a day or two on protected St. John which is two-thirds National Park with a bevy of beaches, bays, hiking trails and reefs that are ideal for eco-friendly watersports.

Ashore on St. John, the charming village of Cruz Bay offers an array of art galleries and craft shops set in shaded courtyards and a hybrid mix of American-Caribbean restaurants and cafés. And for those in quest of some pampering, a few special spas. On the water, there are underwater snorkeling trails, superb scuba sites and cozy coves for paddling and kayaking.

St Croix is the largest U.S. Virgin, but given its distance from the other islands, it is rarely included on a Virgin Islands yacht charter itinerary.

The Spanish Virgin Islands are snuggly wedged between the eastern coast of Puerto Rico and the western reaches of the USVI. This is the Virgin Island’s least charted corner, off-limits for years as part of a US Naval Base. But now the gates have opened and luxury yacht charter guests are discovering arguably the most pristine corner of the Virgin Islands. In total, there are over 20 islands to explore at will, three of which are well established and boasting great harbors. Vieques, Culebra and Cubrelita are reminiscent of the BVI of 50 years ago and a delightful surprise for veteran yacht charter guests looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination. Want to party it up in the hottest nightclubs? Then this is not the place for you. Want to drench all your senses in a natural paradise of tropical rainforests, unspoiled reefs, and uninhabited islands instead? Then consider your haven is found.

SCUBA divers and snorkelers will relish the marine sanctuary of Culebrita, home to a plethora of underwater creatures and vibrant coral, as well as volcanic rock formations and endless beachcombing possibilities. Vieques, the second largest island, is home to only a few thousand people, but plenty of goats, horses, and remote beaches where your yacht is the only man-made structure you’ll see. Not to forget Culebra, the big-mama island (only a few miles in both length and width) which boasts a handful of charming seaside eateries and bars, and what Conde Naste rated as one of the world’s most beautiful beaches: Playa Flamenco.

Party Like a Rock Star or Slip Away to a Secluded Cove on Super Yacht Charters in the Mediterranean

Few luxury yacht charter destinations enjoy the popularity and glamor of Europe and the Mediterranean. The revered stomping ground of the rich and famous for well over a century, it is here that you’ll find some of the most élite sailing yachts, catamarans, and superyachts. And that’s because it’s right here that you’ll find some of the most enticing waters of all, framed by stunning coastlines brimming with ancient towns, historic attractions and a wealth of natural wonders. A kaleidoscope of diverse cultures and cuisines await you at every port. Splendid marinas are your gateway to exclusive shopping, dining, and sightseeing.

For a thoroughly comprehensive luxury yacht experience, Europe and the Mediterranean region are simply unrivalled. Here are the most popular highlights you can include in your European luxury yacht charter itinerary:

France - Cote d'Azur

The French Riviera is synonymous with glamour, glitz, high-fashion and the finer things in life. Yet the Cote d’Azur is so much more than that! Alongside championship golf courses and famous port cities like Monaco, Cannes and Nice, there are also the countless historic villages perched on dramatic cliffs. You’ll have amazing wineries to visit, deep sapphire waters in which to jetski and protected marine reserves in which to snorkel.

Italy - Amalfi Coast

The most popular destination in Italy is the spectacular Amalfi Coast, which starts just south of Naples and stretches for 30 spectacular miles. Renowned for its jaw-dropping rugged limestone coastlines, fluorescent caves, verdant hills teeming with lemon groves and arguably the most delicious seafood in the whole Mediterranean. Dreamy postcard destinations like Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Sorrento, and the crown jewel of the area – the fabled island of Capri, the “go to” vacation spot for everyone from Garbo to Jackie “O”. La Dolce Vita!

Italy - Corsica & Sardinia

The flair of southern France plus the historic charm of Italy blend into two unforgettable island getaways. The sapphire waters of Corsica and Sardinia are the less renowned gems of the Mediterranean with rousing mountainous landscapes, historic walled cities perched at the edge of the sea, and unspoilt sandy beaches. You can roll the dice in the bling bling port of Porto Cervo, get a quick archeology lesson on a guided tour of the ruins in Cagliari, or slip away for some peace and plenty in the moonlit Iles de Maddalena..

Italy - Sicily and the Aeolians

With a tumultuous and fascinating history, this is a culture lover’s dream. Renowned for her active volcanoes, awe-inspiring landscapes and a rich and addictive cuisine, Italy’s southern main island - and her countless island treasures of volcanic origin – are one of the most distinctive corners of the Mediterranean. Sicily simmers with a melting pot history that has influenced its art and architecture and infused its people with a spicy zest for life. Combining the historic and bustling ports of Sicily with a cruise to its offshore islands, the Aeolians, serves up the perfect blend of buzz and bask. Don’t miss the continuously spewing Stromboli.

Spain and the Balearics

A slightly more laid-back glamor destination than the French Riviera, yet just as rewarding, the Southern coast of Spain and the Balearic Islands are perfect for those who like “Livin La Vida Loca” as well as those just seeking a relaxing getaway in a stunning locale. This Spanish archipelago which includes With popular hubs like Mallorca, Formentera and Ibiza offers fantastic wining, dining and shopping with a concoction of beautiful marine parks to satisfy a nature lover’s thirst.

Croatia Yacht Charters

The eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea is considered by many to be the most outstanding yachting destination in Europe. Ancient walled villages, cobalt blue waters and UNESCO world heritage sites dot Croatia’s mountainous Dalmatian Coast. With more than 1,100 islands to explore along a 1,000-mile coastline, Croatia is a powerhouse yacht charter destination with smiling English speaking locals, farm and sea to table cuisine, thriving nightlife, secluded coves, and world class wineries. The frosting on this delectable charter cake is that the islands are close to one another making sailing distances short. Perfect for first time charterers as well as those who prefer to have as much time ashore as possible.

Montenegro Yacht Charters

Not sure where Montenegro is? Let us tell you! Just south of Croatia, cradled along a short but magnificent coastline, Montenegro is one of the least-known destinations in Europe, and one of the most surprising. Hidden coves, alpine landscapes, pristine national parks cascading down to the sea, and a distinctive culture: Montenegro is, without a doubt, a true hidden Mediterranean gem.

Greek Island Yacht Charters

Greece and her world-famous islands are the one yacht destination everyone on the planet dreams about. Thousands of islands, thousands of itineraries and endless attractions. You could sail in Greece for years on end and still not see it all. White-washed villas, vibrant bougainvillea covered hills, loud and proud locals, insanely beautiful waters and millennia upon millennia of history. This may well be the cradle of European civilization, and for yacht charter guests, still the most coveted prize of all.

Turkey Yacht Charters

Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is favored by seasoned sailors and all those who want to experience the fascinating fusion of East meets West. One of the fastest changing stretch of the whole Mediterranean, the Turkish Coast has gone from desolate and wild, to perpetually popular, in just a couple of short decades. Yet much of the wilderness remains, as do the thousand-year-old castles built on the beach and the relaxed and welcoming locals. Some call this the world’s largest open-air museum, and coupled with a delectable cuisine and some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean, Turkey offers one of the most diverse yacht charter experiences in all of Europe.

Northern Europe

For a change of pace, scenery, and cuisine, Northern Europe is the one place we urge everyone to visit, at least once. The choices are vast - the Baltic Sea and the coast of Sweden, Norway, and Scotland are all an adventure sailor’s dream. Or head to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean - you may not want to frolic in the waves this far north, but when the trade-off includes polar bears, walruses, narwhals, white and bowhead whales, a yachting experience to a polar region is insanely rewarding.

Because one Florida yacht charter vacation is never enough!

Chesapeake Bay, Maryland

With over 11,000 miles of striking coastline, Chesapeake Bay is often dubbed America’s most comprehensive yacht charter destination and we’d never dare disagree. The country’s longest estuary is like a treasure trove of excellent gems, offering a wealth of attractions, both natural and man-made. Historic towns dot the coastline; towns like St Michaels and Oxford, which hide a collection of beautiful colonial and federation-style homesteads and charm-filled pubs and bistros. Along the way, sail past wetlands and salt marshes, keeping an eye out for the amazing constellation of bird life which calls this place home and delighting in the abundance of crabs for which this place is so renowned.

Central America is home to an eclectic mix of exotic and colorful countries mostly of Spanish descent. From the dense jungles of Costa Rica to the idyllic beaches of Belize to the smouldering volcanoes of Guatemala, you’ll discover an overabundance of colorful cultures and an endless array of natural wonders.

SCUBA diving and snorkelling in protected reefs, climbing active volcanos, screeching through the jungle on a zip-line, white water rafting a mountain river, sight-seeing among Mayan ruins, and sampling the spice-infused local cuisine are just the entrées. Coupled with superb sailing in pristine waters and literally thousands of idyllic islands to explore, one visit is never enough. From well visited Mexico in the North to Panama in the south with its world-famous Canal. In between are the yacht charter destinations od Costa Rica, Belize and Honduras. The choices for comprehensive and unique itineraries here are limitless.

Here are just a few of the highlights of the most popular Central America yacht charters:

Costa Rica

The world’s most biodiverse nation is an extremely popular vacation destination for North Americans, offering top-notch infrastructure and modernity, with bountiful nature, adrenalin-packed activities and plenty of adorable wildlife. A world class destination for sport fishing and surfing.

Of all the Central American nations you could visit on a yacht charter, Costa Rica is arguably the easiest…in every sense. With an economy that’s set up primarily to satisfy tourist needs, attractions and easy-to-arrange activities abound. This is one of the world’s premier whale-watching meccas and a wonderful place to see nesting turtles, almost all year long. Renowned as an eco-friendly and adventurous playground, this is a country that’s almost entirely designated as a protected national park. Anchor off the Nicoya Peninsula and snorkel with turtles, or hike across the base of Arenal Volcano for spectacular jungle views. Learn to surf on the wild breaks off the beaches of Corcovado National Park, before diving into the heart of the jungle in search of jaguars, monkeys, sloths and a gazillion birds, mammals and insects. If it’s a premier natural haven you seek, Costa Rica is where you need to be.

Panama

An under-the-radar yachting destination, Panama is incredibly surprising, and as rewarding a place to visit as any of her neighbors. Aside the famous Panama Canal, which you can cross aboard your own yacht, you’ll have the best of the Pacific and the Caribbean at your fingertips. Modern, bustling yet still very enticing in the south, Panama’s pacific side boasts the vibrant and cosmopolitan capital, Panama City, as well as the archipelago of Las Perlas Islands. This 200-island cluster of incredible natural beauty is a sanctuary for snorkelers, divers, kayakers and anyone who relishes the fertile wilderness and wildlife that inhabit volcanic isles. Over on the Caribbean side of the Canal is tropical, relaxed and laid-back Panama, where a coconut cocktail served from a “blink-and-you‘ll-miss-it” beach hut is luxury personified. Here too you’ll find an archipelago of 365 stunning islands called San Blas, where you’ll find a reason to come back and visit…every day of the year.

Mexico and the Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez was once dubbed the “Galapagos of the North” by Jacques Cousteau because of its vast array of underwater marine life – manta rays, dolphins, sea lions, and migratory whales call this place home. The sea is sheltered by the 900-mile long Baja Peninsula that extends south from California and boasts secluded coves, pristine reefs, white sand beaches under the desert sun, and world class fishing, especially for marlin. The colonial port of La Paz, with its thriving markets, museums, world class golf courses and bustling restaurants, is the perfect port for casting off in this land of peace and plenty.

Belize

The serious SCUBA diver’s destination of choice, Belize offers the very best of all Central America has to offer, minus any of the bling. Filled to bursting point with world-class dive and snorkel sites at sea and Mayan temple ruins on land, Belize is that pocket of Utopia one seeks when one wishes to sail in a lesser-developed, lesser-modern destination. Sailing here is like sailing in a time-machine and if you’re lucky enough to have time to include Belize to your itinerary then you’ll have the priceless opportunity to experience an exceptional vacation. Why else come here? Because Belize boasts the world’s second largest barrier reef, because diving here is like diving in marine-life paradise, because here you’ll find the 100,000-year-old Blue Hole. Because at Placencia Lagoon you can kayak on see-through waters in the morning and explore Mayan ruins in the afternoon, and because there are thousands of simply perfect islands to discover.

Sailing on a luxury Amazon River cruise is, however, a luxurious dream only the lucky few can experience. Like the most pivotal artery on our planet, the Amazon River beats and pulsates with life. A treasure trove of endemic wildlife, rare pink dolphins, sloths, jaguars, caimans and endless species of monkeys and birds. Luxury Amazon River cruise offers the ultimate nature lover’s escapade. Spend days gingerly cruising the river, spotting animals as you sail along, being woken up by the howling of excited monkeys and learning the different calls of the colorful toucans. Enjoy hikes through seemingly impenetrable forests and learn all about the medicinal plants that have kept countless tribes here thriving since time immemorial. A luxury Amazon River cruise voyage is unlike any other trip you’ll ever take, and one the most ethereal travel experiences in all of South America.

Private Yacht Charters in Patagonia

The end of the world is this continent’s most mesmerizing ‘bookend’ and a magnificent place to explore, especially from the comfort (and warmth!) of a private South America yacht charter. It’s really quite amazing how such a remote place, battered by the harsh elements, can be so beautiful. Glaciers that sparkle so bright they hurt the eyes, snow peaked granite peaks that glow red in the sun and multi-hued forests with not a single soul in sight. Except for wildlife. There are always creatures roaming about Patagonia! Considering much of this rugged and spellbinding coastline is only accessible by boat, the southern end of South America - which Argentina and Chile share in equal measure - is a very rewarding yacht charter destination indeed. Tackle a glacier hike in Tierra del Fuego, sip mate as you watch killer-whales hunt for seals off the coast of Punta Arenas; lose count of the curious furry penguins on Magdalena Island and celebrate with a few glasses of vino in Santa Cruz’s premier wine region. Head off on a South America yacht charter and all these wonders will be right outside your cabin door.

Charter a Luxury Yacht and Cruise the Galapagos Islands

Come meet the most enigmatic, unique and gorgeous animals in the South America continent, in the place that inspired Charles Darwin in his evolutionary theory. The Galapagos Islands, just off the coast of Ecuador, are remote, protected and best discovered by South America yacht charter. These volcanic islets are chock-full of stunning creatures, from the cormorant that doesn’t fly, to the Sally Lightfoot crab that replenishes lost limbs and the prehistoric looking marine iguana. The inquisitive sea lions that love nothing more than to snorkel with you and the funny albatross with their theatrical mating dance. Lie with seals on the ashen sand beaches of San Cristobal, hike up the peak of Isabella and take in the awe-inspiring views, visit 150 year old giant tortoises on Santa Cruz and take in the splendor of a Galapagos sunset from the comfort of your luxury South America yacht charter, anchored just in front of magical Kicker Rock. The Galapagos are so incredibly wild and extraordinary that they have the power to literally transform the way you view the world, as a whole. Totally unmissable.

From the dramatic tip of Patagonia to the wildlife brimming isles of the Galapagos, and all that is enticing in between…a South America yacht charter offers you an incredible world of sailing possibilities.

A place where time has stood blissfully still for millions of years, the Galapagos islands are the ultimate destination for anyone who wants the best of Mother Nature, right at the tip of their bows. Setting sail in this remote archipelago, aboard a Galapagos Yacht Charter, gifts a superlative and utterly unforgettable yachting experience.

Left largely untouched and unthreatened by man, the wildlife of this amazing natural haven has flourished uninhibited for thousands of years. Well, except for that time when Charles Darwin literally ate the last members of a particular tortoise species, but we can safely assume he did so unintentionally…

Fearless of humans and capriciously curious, the wildlife of the Galapagos is extremely entertaining and rewarding to admire. Albatrosses fly right by you, seal lions swim up to you and iguanas stroll right beside you. If you’ve ever dreamt of really understanding evolution, you’ll find no better place. A wildlife sanctuary where birds can’t fly, crabs won’t hide and countless other animals view humans as fellow creatures, neither to be feared nor hunted. This is, perhaps, the single most enticing aspect of a Galapagos yacht charter experience. Some of the glorious animals you can look forward to seeing are Galapagos giant tortoises, marine and land Iguanas, albatrosses, blue and red footed boobies, Sally Lightfoot crabs, Galapagos penguins, sea lions, dolphins and, for many lucky visitors on Galapagos luxury yachts, even hammerhead sharks and whales…among countless more!

Cast off on a luxurious Galapagos yacht charter and you’ll set foot on live volcanic islands, snorkel with playful sea lions and penguins, keep company with giant turtles, frolic in the shallows of pristine and deserted beaches and enjoy magnificent sunsets. You’ll feast on delectable seafood, hike on unspoilt and uninhabited islands, cross the Equator and, as you sail aboard Galapagos luxury yachts in the wake of the HMS Beagle, feel as the first explorers did: overawed and utterly spellbound. And if that’s not enough, at the end of every exciting day, you’ll be totally pampered aboard your Galapagos luxury yacht charter. Indulge in a delicious sundowner as you admire the crimson red horizon and reflect the day’s adventures. Savor a mouth-watering dinner created by your very own Galapagos yacht charter chef, and enjoy a blissful night’s sleep as your crew guides you to yet another corner of this earthly paradise.

Charter a yacht to sail the UNESCO-listed Galapagos Islands...and you’ll never quite view our planet, and yachting, the same way again.

Overview

The Galapagos Islands form an archipelago consisting of more than 60 volcanic isles and atolls, floating less than 620 miles (1000 km) off the western coast of Ecuador in South America. Combined, the Galapagos embrace a mind-boggling 19,500 mi² (50,000 km²) of ocean. Brimming with endemic and very unique wildlife, not seen anywhere else, the Galapagos represent one of the most biodiverse places on earth. Unsurprisingly, Travel and Leisure Magazine voted the Galapagos Islands as the World #1 Islands for the third time in a decade.

The Galapagos are a world of infinite contrasts, where perception and reality often compete for attention. Given that this is one of the world’s most biodiverse corners, home to an array of fauna, you’d expect to find luscious tropical islands, and verdant green as far as the eye can see from Galapagos luxury yachts. Yet the desolate volcanic landscape takes many first-time visitors aback. These ebony rocky islands, with their scattered bursts of vibrant color, are breathtakingly striking. Among it all you’ll discover a world of thriving life, where both marine and land creatures live in a kind of symbiosis never seen anywhere else on earth.

Along with all the luxury and comfort you can expect of a premier Galapagos Yacht Charter, you’ll have your personal naturalist guide on board, who will lead you on shoreside adventures that are packed with insights, information, and eye-opening experiences. You’ll learn why their iguanas are the only ones in the world that surf the waves, why their cormorants don’t fly, and why the island of Espanola is the “go to” breeding site for the world’s 12,000 waved albatross.

Considering the isolation and lack of human habitation here, chartering a motor or sailing yacht is not only the best way to explore the Galapagos, but the only way.

Things to Keep in Mind

This is, without a doubt, the most outstanding eco-marine reserve on our planet. As such, it is also one of its most fiercely protected natural treasures. Visitors and yachts are limited, itineraries are pre-arranged, and regulations are strictly enforced. You may not have the freedom to sail, hike and swim when you want, as with most other yachting destinations, but you’ll soon realize the phenomenal benefits aboard Galapagos luxury yachts. In order to ensure the protection of the wildlife and wilderness, and maximize your privacy and enjoyment, you’ll never deal with overcrowding on any of the islands.

Out of the 61 islands and atolls in the Galapagos, you’ll only be allowed to visit about a dozen. On a typical Galapagos yacht charter, you’ll be sailing by night, exploring new islands in the morning and enjoying leisurely afternoons of water activities. All Galapagos luxury yachts must include a local naturalist guide and local crew.

Of the many Galapagos luxury yachts, only a selected few meet our high standards of luxury, comfort and safety. The emphasis here is very much on quality, not size. Small yet ultra-lush Galapagos luxury motor yachts are simply ideal in this archipelago, as the daily disembarkation is swift and hassle-free. In such a contemplative, isolated place, the last thing with which you’ll want to deal is a large crowd of people.

Want the best of the best? Charter with us and we’ll sail you there.
