Cruising the pristine island chain of the US Virgin Islands has never been so accessible. The newest Atlantic Cruising Yachts charter affiliate, Virgin Island Yacht Charters, offers the perfect opportunity to experience the culture and natural beauty of these unique Caribbean destinations.
Jim Query and Kristi Chapman, owners of Virgin Islands Yacht Charters, in cooperation with the already successful BVI Yacht Charters, recently established a base on the East End of St. Thomas at Compass Point Marina, providing bareboaters a new option for sailing the Caribbean. The East End is a destination on its own, with diverse dining and entertainment options, and is by far the most happening spot in all of St. Thomas.
Endless Opportunities to Explore
Whatever your travel budget, Virgin Islands Yacht Charters can assist you in planning a customized US Virgin Islands charter vacation that is just right for you. Depending on your arrival time, you could depart that afternoon and spend the night in nearby Christmas Cove and enjoy a delicious pizza from Pizza Pi, a floating pizza boat. If you’re staying on the dock for the evening, have fun at the local Dive Bar or in nearby Red Hook. From the beautiful harbor in St. Thomas, make your way to St. John, one of the most tranquil islands on earth, and explore world-renowned beaches such as Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay and Salt Pond Bay. In under three hours you can make your way to the British Virgin Islands, the Sailing Capital of the World.
Save Time and Money
– Charter in the US Virgin Islands
When traveling directly into the US Virgin Islands, there are some serious cost savings. Most major airlines serve the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas with fewer connections and/or direct flights. This makes airfare significantly less than flying into the British Virgin Islands — as much as $500 per ticket or more depending on the time of year. You can also avoid the costly and often inconvenient ferry. Not to mention the fact that you can easily lose a day on the front and back end of your vacation just getting from point A to point B.
Instead, you can go directly from the airport to Virgin Islands Yacht Charters and get settled immediately by taking advantage of their sleep aboard option. Once you arrive, your provisions will be delivered directly to your boat, if you have made arrangements through one of their convenient provisioning services, or you can take a little time to shop for yourself at the nearby grocery store.
