After a very long hiatus of strong hurricanes in the Caribbean and South Florida region, Hurricane’s Irma and Maria created an enormous amount of damage throughout parts of the Caribbean Islands. What we know from our experience is that the people of the islands will work hard to rebuild in time for the winter tourism.
Having said that, there are specific islands mostly unaffected by the latest two hurricanes and both motor yachts and sailing yachts are full-speed ahead in filling their winter yacht charter schedules. The French will make sure St. Barth’s is ready for Christmas and New Years where hundreds of yachts and their charter guests party for the holiday and some stay for the season. The island of Antigua had minimal damage and all three key yachting marina’s – Falmouth, Antigua Yacht Club and Nelson’s Dockyard are open.
St. Lucia, with Marigot Bay, is excited to see more yacht charter activity in their region of the Caribbean. St. Lucia, with the beautiful Pitons offers an easy embarkation and disembarkation point. There are daily direct flights to Europe, Latin American and North America into St. Lucia.
The Grenadines are a must do if St. Lucia is part of your yacht charter itinerary!
Grenada, the island of spice, is rarely affected by hurricanes and just like the island of St. Lucia is looking forward to an increase in tourism this winter while the northern islands rebuild. Grenada too offers daily direct flights to/from Europe, Latin American and North American.
As time progresses this fall we will continue to get updates on the Virgin Islands and St. Maarten and their ability to cater to the yachting community. We must make sure yachts can provision properly and refuel as needed. Additionally, we must be comfortable that they island is safe to enjoy and explore.
