While many charterers head straight to the British Virgin Islands, the USVI is just as beautiful with white sandy beaches, clear blue water, lush green surroundings, snorkeling, diving and seven national parks.
Consisting of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix, the USVI is more populated than the BVI but is host to many quiet cays and islets as well as some great Carribean dining options.
There is much to be said for low-season chartering, from June to November, with peace and quiet to enjoy the sun-kissed islands, tranquil beaches, and turquoise blue waters. While high-season offers a much-needed respite from the cold weather, anchorages can be crowded. It’s important to keep in mind the hurricane season peaks between mid-August and late October, with a six-month season typically producing about 10-14 named storms.
