The US Virgin Islands (also called Virgin Islands of the United States, USVI or American Virgin Islands) are a string of small islands in the Caribbean, situated between Puerto Rico to the West, and the British Virgin Islands to the East. There are three main islands, St. Croix, St. John and St. Thomas, with dozens of smaller islands interspersed. Virgin Island sailing is a true taste of paradise. In addition to the many islands to explore, the weather is pleasantly warm all year round with temperatures between 22-32C. Sailboats are very popular around the USVI, largely due to the the steady and reliable Trade Winds which blow East to West.

The island of St. Thomas is the most cosmopolitan with plentiful shopping, bars and restaurants to discover. For those looking for a taste of pristine natural beauty we recommend visiting the island of St John. This is the smallest of the 3 main islands and it is almost completely covered by the Virgin Islands National Park.
The largest island, St Croix, lies approximately 70km to the South ofSt Thomas and St John islands. This rugged and hilly island has dry desert with cactus in the East, and lush vegetation full of palm trees in the West of the island. Watersports are very popular around St Croix, with scuba diving and snorkeling being particularly popular. There are also plenty opportunities for kayaking, paddleboarding, surfing, parasailing, jet skiing and fishing. Many of our charter yachts come equipped with watersports equipment. We will ensure that you have everything you need if you are planning on enjoying the water.
