Add Moonlight to your Private Yacht Charter Vacation in 2016

Posted on

Planning a yachting holiday this year?  If you haven’t selected your specific dates yet, here’s a great idea to add a little extra, “Pizzazz” to your superyacht experience:  Select your charter dates to coincide with the cycle of the full moon!

There’s just something extra special about being anchored in a protected cove with a sea of stars above, when suddenly, a rust-colored orb begins to appear on the distant horizon, pushing slowly into the air.  As it rises, the color changes from rust to white, growing brighter and brighter by the minute.  Finally, the bright full moon ascends to its lofty place among the stars above, casting lunar light across your yacht’s deck.  You sit with your family and friends, mesmerized by the natural beauty of the night – grateful to be at sea enjoying this special experience together.

BEWARE HIDDEN YACHT CHARTER COSTS – AVOID THESE THREE PITFALLS

To help you plan a moonlit yacht charter holiday, here is the full moon calendar for 2106.  Keep in mind that you’ll have nights both before and after the full moon that will add plenty of moonlight to your adventure.

24 January

22 February

23 March

22 April

21 May (Blue Moon)

20 June

20 July

18 August

16 September

16 October

14 November

To maximize the opportunity for clear skies and great weather, match your full moon dates with a seasonal destination.  For example, if you are considering a Florida yacht charter vacation, March and April offer warm (but not hot) weather, and minimal chances for rain.  The same idea holds true for a Greek yacht charter in summertime, as August and September usually offer clear skies, fewer winds, and smooth sailing…

Moonlight Madness on a Virgin Island Yacht Charter at Bomba’s Shack

Posted on

What luxury sailing charter is complete without a little silliness and merriment with friends?

Although full moon parties take place in different corners of the world, any Virgin Island yacht charter enthusiast will tell you the parties that take place in the British Virgin Islands (aka, the BVI) are some of the most renowned – celebrating both lunar madness and traditional island culture.

The rowdiest of these takes place at Bomba’s Shack in Capoons Bay.
It may not look like much, but Bomba’s Shack is a happening bar set alongside the beach on Apple Bay, at the West End of Tortola, BVI. Each month, the legendary Full Moon Party draws loads of locals and visitors, especially luxury sailing charter passengers looking to experience real island life.

Held monthly on the night of the full moon, moonlight madness spills into the street, the beach, and everything in between.

September 4, 2009
