US Virgin Islands Yacht Charter

A US Virgin Islands yacht charter allows you to enjoy the beautiful United States Virgin Islands. The US Virgin Islands are sisters to the British Virgin Islands and the Spanish Virgin Islands. They consist of the three main islands of St. Croix(Twin City), St. John (Love City), and St. Thomas (Rock City). The US Virgin Islands are known for their white sand beaches.

These beaches include Magens BayHoneymoon Beach, Trunk Bay, and strategic harbors, including Charlotte Amalie and Christiansted. Most of the islands, including St. Thomas, are volcanic in origin and hilly. Moreover, you can hop from one harbor to another when you arrange a USVI yacht charter through Luxury Yacht Charters.

What is the difference between the US and the British Virgin Islands?

If you are looking into US Virgin Islands Yacht Charter, you can explore three larger islands. On the other hand, the BVI consists of four larger islands: Tortola, Anegada, Virgin Gorda, and Jost Van Dyke. 

So, you might think that the culture and customs of the two island groups are almost the same. But they still remain unique from each other. For instance, booking a USVI charter package is more famous for medium to large groups (i.e. family and friends). On the other hand, a BVI private charter is more popular for older adults and honeymooners. In short, it’s ideal for those looking for a laid-back itinerary.

Some first-time tourists may confuse US Virgin Islands with the British Virgin Islands. If this happens, you might book the wrong yacht charter package you are targeting.

It’s crucial to research your yacht charter destination and the islands you want to include in your customized itinerary.
