Escape winter by renting a boat in the caribbean

You may be wondering why you would rent a boat to sail to the Caribbean in the winter holidays. 

Let me introduce you to the beauty of exotic islands and crystal clear waters.

The islands of the Caribbean are very popular due to the warm and stable weather, the hospitable people, the good food and the excellent diving.

By boat rental, you will be able to sail in unprecedented places and you can relax in peace, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Not to mention the low temperatures and snow brought by the winter season.

The best time to sail is from mid-November to the end of May. When it’s cold at home, it’s warm in the Caribbean, with reggae music, cocktails, fine sandy beaches and palm trees. So why not go to this idyllic destination.

Maybe you want to know what areas you could visit and what activities you could do to spend a vacation as invigorating as possible. I will present to you some attractive places for tourists where you can easily reach by sailing a rented boat.



Antigua is the perfect place to combine Caribbean parties with challenging sailing, wildlife and exotic white sand beaches. There are exactly 365 beaches on this island, one for each day of the year.

The warm sea and constant winds make Antigua the ideal place for boat rental for the winter holidays.

British Virgin Islands

One of the most beautiful boat rental locations in the world. A unique location in the Caribbean, which allows you to practice yachting in a huge and closed coral lagoon. The small waves allow easy navigation between islands just a few kilometers away.

Despite its popularity, this location is also rugged, providing privacy even for a large number of sailing boats.

A few people know that after the Great Barrier Reef, the coral reef around Belize is the second largest coral reef in the world. Belize is a little-known boat rental paradise. This part of Central America is untouched, dotted with numerous low palm islands and bars where you can order crayfish and all kinds of fresh seafood.

The ancient Indian civilizations left here ancient monuments, hidden in the surrounding primary forests. In short, this land is truly fascinating and untouched by human hands.

November, December, January and early June are also suitable times to sail the Caribbean Sea.

From mid-June to the end of October is hurricane season. You can also sail in the Caribbean during this time, but it is very hot and it often rains. And, of course, you should monitor the weather forecast so that you are not caught unprepared by a hurricane, which could turn your relaxing trip into a catastrophe.

If we talk about the activities you can do in these wonderful islands, you can take a look at the list below:

  • Diving to see coral reefs and the diverse underwater world. You can find dolphins, flying fish, a large number of colorful tropical fish, and even sharks, such as the Caribbean reef shark, the black shark, or the tiger shark
