Here in South Florida, school is already out! But no matter where you live, its already mid-June, and that means its way past time to start making those summer vacation plans!
Are you looking for the vacation of a lifetime this summer? Are you tired of theme parks and the typical tourist destinations? Do you crave the finer things in life? Are you basically a pirate at heart who thirsts for adventure and decadence on the high seas?
Then you want a charter experience this summer!
And because it is summer, there is literally a world of possibilities for yacht charter destinations. Here are just a few of the most popular places to see and be seen on a luxury motor yacht this summer!
Tortola in the British Virgin Islands
Tortola in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), has always been a popular yachting destination. Tortola is surrounded by other islands you can cruise about. The seas between them are almost always calm, making for a very relaxing yachting experience. Scuba, snorkeling and other water toy experiences abound in the BVI. Plus, if you really want to embrace your inner pirate, the first permanent inhabitant of the island was Blackbeard! Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum…!
Australia’s Whitsunday Islands
Why limit yourself? Enjoy the ultimate yacht charter experience down under! Take a private yacht charter in and around Australia’s Whitsunday Islands. The Whitsundays are made up of 74 unique and enchanting islands, all on the beautiful tropical coast of Queensland, Australia. These islands are right in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, a scuba and snorkeling paradise, and truly one of the great wonders of the world!
Bimini in The Bahamas
Bimini has long been known as one of the top Scuba Diving locations in the Northern Hemisphere. Crystal clear waters and an average water temperature of 80 degrees are only some of the reasons why. Beyond diving, Bimini also offers: healing springs, nature trails, quaint bars and a nightlife similar to Key West, which is why Bimini has been a favorite of both Ernest Hemmingway and Jimmy Buffet!
Between Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine there is almost too much to see and enjoy on a New England yacht charter vacation. Because these areas are diverse but in close proximity, you can enjoy what they all have to offer in a one week charter, or you can decide to choose just one area that suits your fancy such as the rocky coast of Maine, or the profound serenity of Cape Cod. A great way to enjoy a New England yacht vacation is to plan it around one of the legendary festivals that the area is known for, such as the Newport Folk or Jazz Festival, from the deck of your own luxury yacht, and leave the summer crowds behind!
Marina del Rey, California
Marina del Rey is a mere 45-minute drive from downtown Los Angeles, but it may as well be in another world when compared to the hustle and bustle of LA! The area is known to woo the rich and famous with its Five Star resorts and restaurants such as the ultra-luxurious Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey, which is located right on the marina. The docks here hold over 4000 boats and yachts, including the superyachts of many of Hollywood’s elite. So, it you want to party like a red carpet celebrity, Marina del Rey is the place for you!
These are just a few of the fabulous destinations to experience via yacht. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be “rich,” or “famous” to enjoy a luxury motor yacht charter vacation. In fact, when all is said and done, you probably will not pay any more for a private yacht charter, then you would for a VIP cabin on a cruise ship, or a similar length of stay at a Five Star Resort. But, unlike those options, you will enjoy it all from the privacy and luxury of your own yacht!
