Tips for visiting on a St. Thomas boat rental
We love the U.S. Virgin Islands, and since we offer so many boat charters here, we thought we’d include some helpful tips for you to keep in mind before visiting.
When traveling to any Caribbean destination, it’s important to remember to account for the weather. While the U.S. Virgin Islands are beautiful year round, the most popular time to go for the most ideal sailing conditions is March through June. You can visit earlier in the year for cooler temperatures, but any later than June and your trip will be more at-risk for adverse weather, like tropical storms and even hurricanes.
We also suggest communicating with the boat representative to get even more information about sailing in St. Thomas as well as tips for your visit. The “Message Owner” button on the landing page for the boat you’re interested in will allow you to chat with the boat representative about any extras they can offer (such as transportation to and from the port, snorkeling gear, etc.). They can even share their tips for places to visit and the time of year to book your trip.
Also keep in mind that Sailo offers weekly St. Thomas boat charters in order to allow you enough time to explore all of the hidden gems and major tourist destinations this place has to offer. A week may sound like a long time to spend at sea if it’s your first time sailing, but trust us. Once your trip begins, you’ll never want to leave!
