Many countries still have Covid-related travel restrictions, but now is a good time to plan for better times ahead. To help with that, Marina Nazario at Denison Yachting put together a list of the top ten charter destinations in the world. Take a look, and start dreaming:
1.Florida Keys. You don’t need a passport here, just a change in attitude to go with the change of latitude. You can cruise down the Atlantic to Key Largo, Islamorada and Key West, where you might even be able to capture the green flash as the sun goes down. If you go, you can charter the 110’ Broward Il Capo on the video below.
2.The Bahamas. You’ll need a Travel Health Visa Application, but a charter in the Bahamas is one of the safest and most private ways to travel through the Caribbean. Snorkel, lie on quiet beaches, or even have a sunset drink on the flybridge of your yacht. Then head for Compass Cay to swim with the nurse sharks, and Big Majors Cay to feed the pigs.
3.British Virgin Islands. Welcome to cruising central. Expect gorgeous weather, turquoise waters, and some of the best, easiest and safest cruising grounds on the planet. Snorkel, hike, shop, take a dink to explore The Baths, and take anything to the Soggy Dollar Bar, home of the original Painkiller.
4.New England. Stop in Newport for the mansions, Block Island for the boating scene, Nantucket for the whaling museum (and the beaches and the cobblestone streets), and then head Down East to Maine for the lobsters and the lobster boats. Portland, Maine, is a must for foodies and cruising in Casco Bay; Monhegan Island, an offshore artists’ summer enclave, offers an away-from-it-all kind of treat.
5.Mexico. Fly into Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of Baja California, and then fish in the Pacific or cruise, fish and snorkel in the Sea of Cortez. One of the richest ecosystems in the world, it’s filled with marine life – everything from blue whales (the largest animal in the world), to Manta rays and Humboldt turtles.
