Hello August! Where did the summer go? As we head into the new season, now is a perfect time to start planning your vacation for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s! There are many locations you can choose for your ideal vacation and we can offer several yachts for any of your specific needs.
The “prime” season to head to the Caribbean is November – May, with mid-December to April, being the most popular in the charter season. Thanksgiving is a great option if you want to take the family on an adventure.
A great option for a family or a group of friends is St Thomas or the British Virgin Islands. Instead of spending money for gifts under the tree, take the family somewhere and create memories! Charter a catamaran similar to Magic Cat (pictured right, and sleeps 8) and anchor out in the middle of nowhere as you enjoy your cocktails at sunset while the kids swim and snorkel around the yacht.
If you don’t want to travel as far, but have the same beautiful waters surrounding you, the Bahamas is another area that must be seen! Start with meeting your yacht in Nassau, and spend a day exploring Atlantis Resort. The Atlantis is a child and an adult playground! Plenty to do here including amazing water slides (The Leap of Faith is a popular one!), swimming with the dolphins, or exploring the marine life. Don’t spend too long here though - because you will want to get to the Exumas, the Islands of the Bahamas, which are separated into three areas, Great Exuma, Little Exuma, and the Exuma Cays. Or just sit on the yacht and watch the kids as your own private butler hands you a Pina Colada -freshly made in front of you and poured into a coconut. MY Excellence and MY Aspen Alternative are great options and based out of the Bahamas this winter.
From Nassau, your captain will lead you and your guests through the lovely blue untouched waters, and with plenty of anchorage space along the way, you are able to sleep in protected anchorages with complete tranquillity, sunrises, sunsets, and the view of crystal blue seas surrounding you. Everyone will love swimming with the friendly nurse sharks at Compass Cay, and feeding the pigs at Normans. Explore nature’s sea aquarium just past Tyler Perry and Johnny Depps’ private islands.
Whatever your plans are we can help you book the perfect charter for the ideal vacation over the upcoming holidays!
