Spring Break Yacht Charter Destinations: the Virgin Islands & the Keys
With the new year well underway, many are already looking forward to booking a much-needed and well deserved tropical getaway. With spring break just around the corner, why not consider planning the perfect Corona-proof family vacation to a nearby destination? A luxury charter yacht is one of the safest ways to travel during these unprecedented times and with destinations such as The Keys and the Virgin Islands open again to visitors; they’re the perfect choice for your spring break yacht charter.
A spring break yacht charter to the Keys in Florida offers pretty much everything you and your family would want to experience while on spring break. The ideal escape from the USA mainland’s hustle and bustle, the Keys is known for its naturally beautiful islands, filled with mangroves lined with white sandbars set against crystal clear turquoise waters. Providing some of the best snorkelling and diving in the USA, its vibrant coral reefs are teeming with rich aquatic life. As the boating capital of America, there is an abundance of watersports for you and the entire family to engage in, from fly-fishing to jet skiing, kayaking and kite-surfing.
Ashore on land, the colourful islands each offer their own taste of the Keys. Many, such as Key Largo, Islamorada and Key Largo, are home to quaint, bright and charming villages filled with pastel-hued, conch-styles houses. Key Largo, the first island within the Keys archipelago, is home to one of the most famous scenic views, the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, offering the best snorkelling within the Florida Keys’. Islamorada, comprising of six small islets, is known for its superb fishing and spectacular sunsets and is rumoured to be the fishing capital of North America. And of course, no visit to the Keys is complete without a visit to Key West – which is famous for its luxury restaurants, high-end boutiques and stellar Latin-infused nightlife.
For those ready to venture a bit farther away from the USA mainland, a spring break luxury charter to the Virgin Islands is the perfect location. Nestled between Puerto Rico and Anguilla, the British and the US Virgin Islands are open to visitors once more, provided they adhere to local safety regulations. Attracting all types of seafarers for centuries, the Virgin Islands is said to be the sailing capital of the world, thanks in part to its warm climate, short distances and consistent winds. A must-visit destination for sailing enthusiasts, the islands also offer everything one could wish for on a family yacht charter, from a rich nightlife to world-class dining and spectacular beaches with incomparable snorkelling and diving. Peter Island offers the best luxury escape, with five white sand beaches, tennis courts, a swimming pool and spa within its resort. At the same time, Jost Van Dyke Island provides the perfect tropical getaway, with beautiful diving, rugged landscapes for hiking and unspoiled beaches. In the evening, the Great Harbour is home to a thriving nightlife, filled with bright lights and yacht parties.
So no matter what you are looking to experience during your spring break yacht charter, the Keys and the Virgin Islands can fulfil all your family’s needs.
