The high season for the Caribbean

In general, is the winter months, during the holiday vacations of Christmas, Presidents week and Easter break. Booking well in advance is wise so that you will get the boat of your choice as opposed to having to settle for what is left. Although during the high season there are no special promotions, you will begin to find them as early as June running through November.

There are many flights available to every island in the Caribbean. Some of the islands have several connections in order to get there. Consider searching out private plane charters. They are a great way to cut out some of the many connections, and they are not very expensive. Vincent and Union. The pilots on these charters are extremely accommodating and assist your party right through customs.

Bear in mind that one entire day is dedicated to travel, provisioning and boat orientation. You will leave the dock by the following morning and then begin your exciting journey.

If a crewed charter is your preference, there are many to choose from in all locations of the Caribbean. Having a local skipper on board will ensure that your charter experience will be more carefree. A local skipper will know how to negotiate the anchorages and coral reefs that are evident around many of the islands. He will also know the best beaches and the best restaurants and markets. Depending on the size of the charter boat, one may not want to take up valuable space on a tight ship and add a cook to the crew. But again, if you want a carefree vacation with no dishes or cooking, then a hostess/cook will be a valuable asset to the perfect vacation.

The Caribbean Weather

Certain winter weather periods in this region create challenging sailing conditions. If a novice, you may want to avoid open water sailing. Many parts of the Caribbean have mooring systems in place in order to protect the fragile ecosystem. Depending on the location and time of year, usually holiday weeks, arriving at an anchorage by mid-afternoon is wise in order to get a mooring or drop anchor before the crowds arrive. Make sure that you are familiar with rules regarding anchorages/moorings for your particular islands. Moorings are an additional fee at many locations.

During the November through January winter months; the prevailing wind is 15-20 knots from the northeast. This provides for calm pleasant conditions at anchor.

Late summer through fall (August through November) is the Caribbean's rainy season. However, rain squalls can occur at any time, and they are usually short-lived. Average high temperatures range from 85°F to 90°F with the highest in July through October; average low temperatures are about 10 degrees less.

Depending on the amount of time you have set aside, one-way options are popular in many locations. Martinique to St. Lucia, St. Vincent to Grenada, St. Lucia to Union are just a few examples of one-way itineraries.

The climate of the Caribbean is tropical with local variations, depending on mountain elevation, water currents, and the trade wind. Temperatures are almost always moderate with very little seasonal variation. Temperatures in the Caribbean are not significantly variable as they range from around 28°C (85°F) in July-August to around 24°C (75°F) in January-February.
