Frequently asked questions about yacht rent in Caribbean islands
⛵ When is the boat charter season in the Caribbean?
The boat charter season in the Caribbean lasts from December to April. Then the rainy season starts lasting from May to November, not the best time for bareboat. At this time, the Caribbean Islands are at risk of hurricanes — especially from August till October. The best practice to avoid them is to follow the weather forecast.
⛵ Do I need a visa to rent a boat in the Caribbean?
All 13 independent Caribbean islands do not require a visa to rent a boat. Also, you don’t need it in Turks and Caicos, the British territory. A US visa is required in the United States territories. The autonomy of the Netherlands needs a Schengen visa. You can visit French domains with a Schengen visa appointed by the French Embassy. British lands: a visa to Montserrat can be applied on the Internet, Anguilla and the Cayman Islands accept the usual British visa, and the BVI require the special visa appointed by the British embassy. If you have a visa-free passport for the EU countries, the same rules apply for it in the Caribbean.
If you rent a bareboat charter in the Caribbean, apply for a visa for the country where you start and finish your journey. In most countries, it can be appointed at the harbour or marina on arrival.
⛵ Where can I find and book a boat charter in the Caribbean?
Ports in the Caribbean region, where the boat rental is more effective than in other places.
Virgin Islands: East End. British Virgin Islands: Road Town. Guadeloupe: Pointe-à-Pitre. Grenada: St. George's. Cuba: Cienfuegos. Martinique: Le Marin. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines: Saint George. Saint Lucia: Rodney Bay. There's a lot places for bareboat.
⛵ The best airport for boat charter in the Caribbean?
There are airports in almost every country. For example, New Providence (Bahamas), Havana (Cuba), Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago), Pointe a Pitre (Guadeloupe), Port de France (Martinique) and others. Some islands have local airports where few planes can land. For example, the BVI don’t have international flights. You get there from neighbouring islands, Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands. Saint-Martin country doesn’t have an airport. But the other part of the Saint Martin Island, Sint Maarten, has one.
