Deciding where to go and what to see is one of the most wonderful parts of booking your yacht charter. As you plan your elevated charter experience, there are a lot of options to consider, including which boat, which base to leave from, and how long you will be chartering. When you are ready to book, consider this: a USVI yacht charter with Waypoints allows you the freedom to sail from the USVIs to the unparalleled Spanish Virgin Islands (SVIs).
Sailing to the Spanish Virgin Islands
Exploring the SVIs on your luxury getaway takes you back to a simpler era. Embrace the laid-back vibe of the Caribbean with the untouched feel of the SVIs. The Spanish Virgin Islands are the paradise that you’ve been dreaming of, and summer is the perfect time to visit. The seas calm down, and the winds tend to be from more favorable angles. From our base in St. Thomas, it is a short 20-mile sail west to Culebra and Ensenada Honda. The calmer seas make nearly every anchorage accessible in the SVI chain to Culebra, Culebrita, Louis Pena, Vieques, and many other cays.
Let Your Adventure Begin
Once you arrive in USVI, you can enjoy some time around our marina in Frenchtown before your charter begins. If you have chosen to sleep aboard the night before, you can wake up, finish provisioning, and grab a bite to eat at one of the multiple eateries nearby. After you are cleared to set sail, you can head to one of the western anchorages around St. Thomas, such as Honeymoon Beach, Lindbergh Bay, or Brewer’s Bay, to relax after your first day on the water.
You can then make your way to Ensenada Honda on Culebra. You will carefully follow the ships’ channel into the harbor, anchor, and use the ROAM APP to clear your vessel and crew through customs. Try one of the famous dining spots in the town of Dewey, like The Dinghy Dock, Zaco’s Tacos, or Mamacita’s.
There is a ton of fun to be had around Dewey, renting street-legal golf carts, having a beach day on Zoni Beach and visiting the Turtle Sanctuary, or making your way to see the brightly painted tanks on Flamenco Beach along with pristine white sand. Once you have had enough of adventuring on land, take the boat over to Ensenada Dakity for some snorkeling.
Sights That You Don’t Want to Miss
Make your way to the gorgeous Cay of Culebrita. Take in the amazing beach, explore a historic lighthouse, and soak in a natural “hot tub.” When you set sail for Vieques, there are a number of anchorages to choose from, including Ensenada Honda, Sun Bay, or Esperanza. Check with an authorized vendor about a kayak tour of the Bioluminescent in Mosquito Bay, a protected harbor.
There is no shortage of serene blue waters, soul-warming sunshine, and white sand beaches. Whether you are partial to packing as many sights as you can into one vacation or going where the wind blows you, you won’t be disappointed by the endless beauty of the Spanish Virgin Islands. Book Your Charter with Waypoints USVI and make your summer one to be remembered.
