Best Airport for Caribbean Catamaran Yacht Charter

Posted on

QUESTION

“We live in the USA.  I’ve been told crewed catamaran charters are the best way to enjoy a yachting vacation in the Virgin Islands.  Do you have any suggestions as to the most convenient, best airports?     Jenny S.

 

ANSWER

Hi Jenny.  We are thrilled to hear about your plans – a travel writer once described a Caribbean sailing yacht charter as, “One of the top five vacations in the world!”

If you wish to explore the US Virgin Islands (USVI), then the Cyril E. King International Airport (airport code:  STT), in St.Thomas  is your best bet.

Note:  There is also an airport in St. Croix, the Henry E. Rohlsen International Airport, St. Croix (STX). However, very few catamaran and sailboat rental companies operate from St. Croix, as there are very few calm anchorage areas.
So who flies into STT (St. Thomas)?  As to major airlines flying from the United States to Saint Thomas, Delta has flights to Saint Thomas Cyril E King, American Airlines has flights to STT Cyril E King, and US Airways has flights to Saint Thomas Cyril E King International Airport.  You’ll find both direct flights as well as connecting flights through San Juan, Puerto Rico in the Spanish Virgin Islands.

NOW WHAT?

Now that you know HOW to get there, here are three crewed catamaran sailing yachts available for charter in the Virgin Islands.Sunreef 70 catamaran MUSE
