The USVI enjoy a tropical climate, tempered by easterly trade winds with relatively low humidity. There is little seasonal temperature variation with a minimum daily average of 28C through to a maximum of 31C The rainy season runs from May to November. August - October is considered "hurricane season" and I would not recommend a charter during those months

Getting There

The USVI are served by two international airports; The Cyril E. King Airport [STT] on St. Thomas and the Henry E. Rohlsen Airport [STX] on St. Croix

To get to St Thomas  fly into Cyril E. King Airport. There are direct flights from many US cities, but some are only on weekends. Most flights connect through Miami, Ft Lauderdale or Atlanta.

Compass Point Marina, the main charter base in the USVI, is just over 10 miles away from Cyril E. King Airport, a 30 minute taxi ride

You can also connect through Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport (SJU), San Juan, Puerto Rico, which is the nearest international airport. Several airlines operate flights from SJU to STT, including Seaborne and Cape Air.

We can arrange transfers between the airport and your charter boat. Price on request

Sailing Qualifications

No formal qualifications/certifications are required but both the charter company and I will wish to see the skipper's sailing resume just to check they have the necessary experience to ensure everybody will be safe and enjoy the charter
