We all know that the holiday season is for spending quality time with our closest friends and family.

IYC’s expert team of Charter Consultants have years of experience in creating the prime charter holidays. They will organize and customize your journey and ensure a smooth charter experience, leaving you to relax and enjoy the perfect holiday at sea.
Tour the ever popular shores of the Caribbean during the winter months. Relax and enjoy the best of this region’s warm hospitality and alluring cruising grounds.
Appreciate the beautiful sunshine
Soak up Vitamin D with some Caribbean sunshine. If you’re traveling from the Northern hemisphere, you can leave the cold, grey weather behind and embrace sunnier climates. The white sandy beaches are waiting for you, as you grab your sun hat and enjoy a cocktail at one of the local beachside bars. When it comes to island hopping, the US Virgin Islands are an inspired choice for a winter vacation; sail between the main islands of St Thomas, St John, and St Croix, dropping anchor at isolated bays to spend the day fishing and relaxing.
Swim in the warm waters
With temperatures averaging 25 celsius (73 - 83 Fahrenheit) throughout the winter months, the warm weather and temperate waters are optimal for trying out thrilling water equipment. Many luxury charter yachts are filled to the brim with exciting inflatable toys, paddleboards, jet skis, windsurfs, and more! Try out a new hobby under the watchful eye of your experienced crew, as you spend your days paddling in the clear, blue waters that flow through this beautiful part of the world.
Just a short trip from the US
Just a short flight away from the mainland United States, a trip to the Caribbean takes just a few hours from Boston or New York, and under an hour from Miami. When you touch down at your Caribbean island of choice, your luxury holiday begins as your yacht crew meets you at the airport. Traveling by private jet is also an excellent way to arrive, as many islands have private airstrips for a truly exclusive experience.
Savor an unforgettable atmosphere
Experience a Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Year’s Eve to remember, as the six-star service you receive on board your charter yacht will include themed nights, delicious food, and evening entertainment. Yachting hotspot St Barts is renowned for its colorful New Year’s Eve celebrations; immerse yourself in the jovial atmosphere ashore before taking a tender back to your yacht at midnight to experience the spectacular fireworks lighting up the harbor.
The warm waters and colorful marine life throughout the Caribbean attract divers and snorkeling enthusiasts throughout the year. The Bahamas, in particular, are a stunning option for those wishing to enjoy diving wrecks (there are over 40 of them dotted among the islands) and swimming with sharks. The shallow waters of this region also make it the perfect place for beginners to test out their skill.
