The Moorings is opening a new charter base in the Spanish Virgin Islands, the easy-to-get-to, easy-to-enjoy cruising grounds on the east coast of Puerto Rico. The new location is at Puerto Del Ray Marina in Fajardo, just a 45-minute cab ride from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, which has many direct flights from the U.S. And U.S. citizens, of course, do not need a passport to visit there.
The marina is the largest in the Caribbean, with a dockside bar and restaurant, gourmet store, marine stores and free wi-fi. From there it’s not far to some of the Caribbean’s most undiscovered cruising grounds, with deserted white sandy beaches, crystal-clear waters and colorful reefs, particularly around the islands of Culebra and Vieques. Culebra offers some of the Caribbean’s best fishing, diving and snorkeling, while Vieques, the largest island in the Spanish Virgins, has stunning beaches and the charming seaside village of Esperanza, with an island boardwalk.
The Moorings, which has 20 destinations around the world, offers all-inclusive luxury charters including a captain and chef, and bareboat charters, where you do everything yourself. For powerboat charters at Puerto Del Ray, the Moorings 514 Power Catamaran has four large staterooms with en suite heads, a modern salon, full galley and an over-sized flybridge for stunning 360-degrees views while underway or at anchor.
“I have no doubt that Puerto Rico will become a favorite destination for our charter guests,” says Josie Tucci, general manager of The Moorings. “Easy access, year-round warm weather and unspoiled islands make an unbeatable combination, and the Puerto Del Ray Marina is second to none.” If you want to expand your horizons, you can arrange a one-way charter from The Moorings’ popular charter base in Tortola in the British Virgin Islands to the new operation in Puerto Rico. You can book now for charters starting in January.
