Out of Season Charters - Caribbean and the Bahamas
The Caribbean and the islands of the Bahamas are awash with superyachts during the winter cruising season, when the popular islands such as St Barths and Antigua are reminiscent of St Tropez in the summer. Venturing to the Caribbean and the Bahamas during the off-season, however, can have its benefits.
From May to September certain areas of the Caribbean offer favourable weather and competitive prices. Make for the quiet beaches of the Virgin Islands from May through June and head south to the Leeward Islands in June and July. The Windward Islands are pleasantly warm throughout the summer.
Alternatively, the Bahamas, just 80 kms off Florida's coast and continuing 965 kms towards the Caribbean, offer 700 islands lapped by shallow waters that are ideal cruising grounds all year round.
The following yachts are just a few of the yachts Camper & Nicholsons have chartering in the West Indies this summer:
