CARIBBEAN

British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands (BVI’s) are a chain of almost 60 unspoiled islands in the Caribbean that offer smooth sailing along calm turquoise waters. These islands are some of the most popular in the Caribbean, thanks to their convenient destination location and wide range of activities for everyone to enjoy. The four larger, main islands are Tortola, Jost Van Dyke, Virgin Gorda, and Anegada. Each island offers tremendous views of glistening blue ocean water, extensive lush greenery, quiet and calm beaches, yacht clubs, and so much more. These islands have something for everyone in the family to enjoy, from fun diving adventures and water sports to relaxing quiet coves.

As one of the most popular Caribbean destinations for yacht charters, the BVI’s offer the biggest selection of charter yacht experiences than any area of the Caribbean. Tortola is the BVI’s largest island, and it’s also their capital. Most crewed yacht charters originate here, but other islands, such as Jost Van Dyke are also popular yacht charter locations. Book your trip to the British Virgin Islands with Envy Yacht Charters for the ultimate Caribbean experience! Our luxury yachts can help give you the adventure of a lifetime while enjoying the most comfortable accommodations.

Leeward Islands

These islands are located north of the British Virgin Islands up to the Windward Islands. The group includes Saba, St. Martin, St. Barts (Saint Barthelemy), St. Kitts, Antigua, Anguilla, and Montserrat, which are also known as part of the Caribbean Lesser Antilles. Thanks to British, French, Spanish, and Dutch colonialism, the Leeward Islands have a unique culture that has impacted their language, economics, and traditions. Along with being a popular travel destination, the Leeward Islands offer more than natural beauty and fun outdoor activities. Enjoy the magnificent ocean views and relaxing warm waters, and be sure to learn more about the incredible history of these islands!

A cosmopolitan paradise with sophisticated nightlife is the best way to describe this yachting destination. Yacht charters commonly visit the Leeward Islands due to the phenomenal beaches and sight-seeing that’s available. Common itineraries include starting in St. Maarten and visiting St. Barts, Anguilla, and St. Kitts during the week. As with every private charter vacation, the itinerary is determined by the charter guest as long as the weather cooperates and the Captain approves you are on your way to visiting paradise. 

The 37 square mile island of St. Maarten/St. Martin is a popular starting point for charters in the Leeward Islands. This island is divided into two countries: French St. Martin and Dutch St. Maarten. While these two counties maintain their separate governments, the border is open and charter guests can visit these two countries during a stop on their yacht charter week. For yacht charter guests looking for a bit of nightlife, the Dutch side of St. Maarten has casinos and nightclubs. For charter guests looking for spectacular shopping opportunities the Marigot area in French St. Martin is full of quaint shops and brasseries. Some charter guests choose to eat ashore while visiting this island and choose the Grand Case area known for its beautiful waterfront dining options. There are many areas around St. Maarten/St. Martin that offers private beachcombing and anchorages lush with sea life to explore while snorkeling. 

The Island of Saba is lush and a scuba divers paradise. We recommend using the services of the local dive shop on Saba when choosing to dive. This area is best for the more experienced scuba diver. 

Antigua is a sailor’s paradise. The culture-rich country has many breathtaking beaches and National Registered historic landmarks for those history-loving charter guests. Your yacht charter that originates here can possibly visit Montserrat and Barbuda, the sister island to Antigua. Many charter guests choose to spend their Sunday night in Antigua to experience the world-renowned party at Shirley Heights which includes a fabulous buffet and energetic live dance music while perched atop a mountain overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Returning to your private yacht after a night at Shirley Heights you can still hear the music echoing down to English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard where your yacht can be docked. 

Wherever you choose to charter in the Leeward you will experience the Leeward Islands in the most luxurious and fun way possible with our Caribbean Yacht Charters!

Spanish Virgin Islands

The Spanish Virgin Islands is a cluster of islands just east of the US territory of Puerto Rico. There are two main islands: Culebra and Vieques, and numerous smaller islands in the area make up the remaining Spanish Virgin Islands. This unique chain of islands offers a fascinating exploration for the adventurous charter guest or for those who want to relax in luxury. See all that the Spanish Virgin Islands have to offer below! 

These islands are considered a territory of Puerto Rico, and its residents are US citizens. However, the culture here is distinctly different from the US Virgin Islands. Much of the culture and traditions that are celebrated here are based on Spanish and Caribbean influences, and the majority of locals speak English or Spanish. 

The Spanish Virgin Islands were once not accessible by yacht charter due to the area being located in the United States Navy territory. Now, however, these isles are widely traveled to by sailing yachts and motor yachts alike. Because of the lack of tourism, the Spanish Virgin Islands are mostly untouched and remain in pristine condition. As one of the Caribbean’s best-kept secrets, the Spanish Virgin Islands have clear, blue, and luminous waters with clean, beautiful beaches that are truly a sight to behold. 

Much of the Spanish Virgin Islands have a laid back feel, so while the nightlife isn’t as prevalent here, you can expect to sit back and relax on these islands during your yacht charter vacation.

US Virgin Islands

The U.S. Virgin Islands consist of 3 main islands and several dozen smaller islands on the eastern side of the Caribbean. Sometimes called "America's Caribbean Paradise," this cluster of islands combines the cultures and customs of American and Caribbean life, making it a popular destination for visitors from the states. Especially since U.S. citizens don't need a passport to enter, and they accept American currency. With moderate temperatures and pristine beaches, it's easy to see why vacationers flock to this area throughout the year. Each of the three main islands - St. Thomas, St. John, and St. Croix - offers its own unique experience to guests. 

St. Thomas, the largest of the three islands, is known for its luxury. Commonly, mega-yachts are seen anchored in the harbors, and elegant restaurants and shops crowd the area. Contrastingly, St. John is more well-known for being a naturalist's dream destination. There are over 7,000 acres of dedicated parkland here which are surrounded by clean, pure beaches. Nature and romance found here are popular among honeymooners, too! Lastly, St. Croix is known for its rum distilleries and sugar cane plantations. This island also has beautiful coral reefs and clear waters. As you can see, each island offers a unique Caribbean experience that is not to be missed on your yacht charter experience. 

The proximity of St. Thomas to the British Virgin Islands makes it a likely starting point for Caribbean yacht charter experiences. You can either go directly over to the British Virgin Islands on your first day of charter or go directly to St. John and enjoy one of its picturesque coves for your first night on charter.

Windward Islands

St. Vincent, Grenadines, and the Windward Islands.

The “Windward Islands” are a group of 125 islands whose name comes from the prevailing northeast trade winds. The volcanic origin of these islands gives them a scenic landscape scattered with rugged, beautiful mountains and outstanding beaches.

MEDITERRANEAN

The Mediterranean is a popular charter yacht destination for worldwide adventurers, and Croatia, Turkey, France, Italy, and Greece are the go-to spots for sailing charters. We can provide itineraries for each of these destinations. When you think of the Mediterranean, you think of sparkling turquoise waters and exquisite food. The Mediterranean Sea spans for thousands of miles, a little over 28,000 to be exact. While traveling in the Mediterranean, you will experience the culture and be witness to beautiful landscapes.

BAHAMAS


The Bahamas is a popular tourist destination with everything you could ask for in a luxury yacht charter vacation. With an acclaimed reef system to explore, tranquil aquamarine waters, and perfect climate, the Bahamas island chains offer a little slice of paradise for you on your vacation. The Bahamas are comprised of approximately 700 islands, with the most popular sites for chartering being the Exumas, Abacos, Eleuthera, and Grand Bahama Island.

On your luxury yacht charter, you will notice some areas of the Bahamas boast water visibility over 200 feet! The vibrant sea life is easily viewed from your yacht deck or as you swim among the colorful coral reefs and schools of tropical fish. Your yacht charter crew has the experience to carefully navigate this expansive sailing ground and allow you to relax and enjoy the breathtaking islands.

The islands of the Bahamas offer distinct experiences. Nassau/Paradise Island is home to the world-class “Atlantis” resort. Here you will find exciting nightlife and casino activity for the gambler in your group. Your luxury yacht charter can dock at this marina and let you enjoy the many resort activities available. The “Out Islands” beckon for those charter guests who desire quieter, more remote surroundings. Here you will find some of the most incredible dive sites, fishing venues, and breathtaking secluded beaches.

FIJI/SOUTH PACIFIC

Envy Yacht Charters can book your vacation throughout the South Pacific. We specialize in Fiji as we are one of the very few brokers worldwide who have visited the country. Our team has the expertise to make your charter vacation perfect from start to finish as we know the land-based side of Fiji as well and can help you put together a land and charter experience. Further, we have charter yachts available throughout the South Pacific, including Australia, New Zealand, Tonga, Papua, and Tahiti. Whether you are looking for a sailing yacht or powerboat, we can get you in the water and starting your personalized charter yacht vacation.

FIJI – Our first visit to this country enabled us to quickly determine that it is perfect for a charter yacht vacation. With 322 islands comprising the country, there are limitless itineraries. Access to Nadi International Airport is easy with direct flights from Los Angeles on FIJI AIRWAYS. From there, you can begin your charter in Port Denarau, Pacific Harbour, or Suva Harbour. Whether you want to swim with sharks, snorkel through pristine reefs or visit the islands from the reality show, SURVIVOR, we can help you select the perfect yacht for your vacation. The Fijian culture is a melting pot of Pacific, Asian and European cultures that creates an atmosphere of pure joy. Fiji is often referred to as the “Happiest Country on Earth,” and one to visit. This beautiful country and its people will capture you.

In our opinion, the optimum charter vacation allows charter guests the opportunity to visit several different islands during their charter period. In Fiji, the Yasawa, Mamanuca, and Lau island chains give you that opportunity. These island chains offer distinctly different charter experiences, yet all will provide you with an unbelievable up-close view of the crystal clear waters and the heartwarming culture of Fiji. Another fantastic option is a charter trip to the second largest island Vanua Levu which would include a visit to the incredible “Garden Island” Taveuni. And of course, there is the astonishing island of Kadavu, which is home to the world’s third-largest reef system. The itineraries are limitless!
The weather in Fiji is wonderfully warm and tropic, with temperatures ranging from 72 degrees F in the colder months (May – November) to 88 degrees F in the warmer months (December – April). Water temperatures range from 75 degrees to 86 degrees.

DIVING in Fiji is world-class. It is the soft coral capital of the world with over 400 miles of coral seascape and is home to some of the best shark diving. There are plenty of large pelagics, including Tiger Sharks, Hammerheads, and Bull Sharks. Underwater visibility often exceeds 90 feet. Envy Yacht Charters can help you plan your dive vacation from your yacht or package a land and yacht vacation.

SURFING in Fiji is another famously popular past time. One of the best surf breaks in the world, “Cloud Break,” is located in Fiji and brings surfing professionals from across the globe to surf the colossal swells that are common April through October. If your experience level falls below that break, we work with surf instructors and guides who can find the right surfing spot for you.

EXPERIENCE THE CULTURE of Fiji with your charter yacht crew. All of the crews on these yachts have spent time in Fiji embracing the incredible culture that can be found throughout the islands and villages. Respectful of the village practices, many yacht crews have been privileged to enjoy many of the traditional ceremonies practiced in Fiji, such as the Kava, fire walking, and Meke – a traditional Fijian Dance, to name a few. If interested, your charter yacht crew can arrange for you to experience these unique cultural practices too.

THAILAND

Thailand is also a very spiritual country that places great importance on respect for its monarchy and its religion.
