You may have booked a luxury St. Barts vacation along with a luxury villa in order to enjoy one of the finest Caribbean destinations available. Your luxury vacation may include a villa rental that provides you with the utmost in service and world-class amenities. However, you are in St. Barts, and though villas for rent can provide an all-in-one solution, you cannot miss out on some sightseeing and activities.
For example, St. Barts is now one of the most exclusive boating areas in the world. The world’s most expensive yachts pull into the waters surrounding the island as well as making their way into the charming port in Gustavia. This means that you should plan at least one day out on those waters of St. Barts.
While you can always consult with your villa rental company to inquire about private boat charters, we recommend you consider working with manned or crewed vessels too. This ensures you get the very most out of every moment on the waves, whether that is diving, exploring the shore, snorkeling, or picnicking on scenic beaches.
Generally, you can find vessels that range from semi-rigid hull boats that you can man on your own, and which are ideal for chartering if your villa has a private dock or marina access, but there are also yachts and catamarans to consider. They might have full galleys, cabins, bathrooms and more.
