Caribbean Yacht Charter
Sail Away to the Tropics
Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, this region comprises more than 7,000 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. That’s A LOT to explore and a Caribbean yacht charter, arranged by Luxury Yacht Charters, is the BEST way to get out and see it all!
The Caribbean is a crescent-shaped group of islands more than 2,000 miles (3,200 km) long separating the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, to the west and south, from the Atlantic Ocean to the east and north. From the peninsula of Florida on the mainland of the United States, the islands stretch 1,200 miles (1,900 km) southeastward, then 500 miles (800 km) south, then west along the north coast of Venezuela on the South American mainland.
The Caribbean islands are truly a unique and special place. They are remarkable for the diversity of their animals, fungi, and plants, and have been classified as one of Conservation International’s biodiversity hotspots because of their exceptionally diverse terrestrial and marine ecosystems, ranging from montane cloud forests to cactus scrublands. The region also contains about 8% (by surface area) of the world’s coral reefs along with extensive seagrass meadows, both of which are frequently found in the shallow marine waters bordering island and continental coasts of the region. The natural environmental diversity of the Caribbean islands has led to recent growth in eco-tourism.
