Charter yacht destinations
You can go anywhere in the world on board your charter yacht, but here are a few of the top yachting destinations to help inspire your trip planning.
The Caribbean is a classic charter getaway known for its relaxed vibes, beautiful tropical scenery and countless activities, from scuba diving to zip lining. One day you can bask in the peacefulness of a postcard-perfect anchorage where you’re the only yacht in sight – and then the next day you can cruise into bustling ports like St. Barths and do some luxury shopping just feet from your yacht. Just north of the Caribbean is the island nation of The Bahamas, which offers some epic cruising experiences from swimming pigs to cave exploration and water as clear as you’ll find anywhere.
The epitome of chic yachting destinations, the Mediterranean has long-attracted holiday-makers seeking a mix of luxurious onshore diversions and gorgeous scenery. There is much on offer in the Med, from the glamorous Cote d’Azur ports of St. Tropez and Monaco to visiting historic sites in Italy, Croatia and Greece. Not to mention all the exceptional cuisine, clear-blue waters and stunning beaches that you’ll discover along the way.
One of the fastest-growing yachting destinations, Asia offers a beguiling mix of gorgeous cruising grounds, delicious food and unrivaled scuba diving sites. Colorful Thailand tops of the list of popular Asian cruising grounds, and there are a bevy of beautiful yachts here available for charter. Though consider some further afield locations, like Raja Ampat in Indonesia, which is known for having some of the best diving in the world and where you will likely not see another yacht for days.
There is no better place to live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasies than on a luxury yacht charter in the South Pacific. Here you will find breathtaking coral atolls, untouched beaches and verdant hillsides. Fiji is reporting more and more megayacht visitors each year, whose guests are drawn to the exceptional diving, unique experiences meeting local tribes and playing castaway on an idyllic beach.
Antarctica, Patagonia and the Galapagos islands are a few of the bucket-list travel destinations that you can explore in style on board your charter yacht. The Galapagos islands are a nature lover’s dream, where you can get up-close-and-personal with rare species and swim with penguins and playful seal pups. The southernmost cruising grounds of Patagonia and Antarctica are an adventurer’s playground. Did you know you can even heli-ski in Antarctica, or dive beneath the surface on the yacht’s submarine?
