Here are some of the charming US Territories for you to consider for your next charter vacation
United States Virgin Islands
If you are looking for a restful, revitalizing tropical time away, with warm turquoise waters and palm-lined soft sand beaches, then look no further than a private luxury yacht charter in the US Virgin Islands. The islands lie in turquoise waters considered to be among the most sheltered waters in the Caribbean Sea.
There are three main islands – St Thomas, St Croix and St John – and beyond these there are hundreds of tempting small islands and cays, many uninhabited, waiting to be discovered by you and your friends. This region provides the complete spectrum of opportunities – from the vibrant entertainment and nightlife to be found on St Thomas, through to the other extreme of peaceful serenity in a secluded bay amid the unspoiled beauty of St John.
Revered internationally as “The Sunshine State”, Florida is blessed with 3,000 hours of sunshine and boundless waterways to explore. It is home to two of the world’s most vibrant yachting hubs: Miami and Fort Lauderdale, earning its south-eastern tip the enviable title of “Yachting Capital of the World”.
Whatever you are seeking – deserted beaches, sophisticated socializing, nautical miles of prime fishing grounds, plentiful marine life and tropical sunsets – Key West, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach dish it up in generous scoops.
South Florida is the epicenter of sun, sand, surf and sport fishing, with yachts of all sizes, styles and variously equipped for charters of a few days to weeks at a time.
With a rich yachting heritage captivating New England boasts chic towns and first-class restaurants not unlike the glamorous French Riviera. This area also offers pristine sandy beaches and colourful, coastal villages steeped in character and charm. The names conjure pictures of beauty and history from Newport to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket to Cape Cod, Maine to the Hamptons; it is all here in a surprisingly small area.
The wildlife in New England is also superb with whale-watching from May to October where you have the chance to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures.
Sapphire seas, lush green fields, broad golden beaches, granite coastlines, postcard-perfect lighthouses, and deep harbors bristling with boats all combine to create a scenery unparalleled. Its food is also spectacular, and you should not leave here without trying their ubiquitous but delicious fresh lobster rolls and clam chowder.
Alaska is the ideal luxury yacht destination for those wishing to connect with an amazing diversity of wildlife in an area that is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a land of epic proportions with gigantic glaciers, nation-sized national parks and enormous wildlife. Bears, wolves, moose and caribou all roam ashore in this pure, untouched wilderness while humpback whales, seals, sea lions and orcas all make Alaska’s oceans home.
Few other places in the world offer you the opportunity to experience the full glory of nature with little or no human interaction. Alaska is a vast space offering majestic meandering channels, fjords, passages, bays and straits mostly inaccessible by road and therefore virtually untouched.
Often described as The Last Frontier, Alaska is a raw, awe-inspiring wilderness… no place for the timid! Onboard your private charter yacht, however, you can enjoy all that this area has to offer in luxury and comfort.
