Yacht Charter in St Lucia

Earlybird by Lagoon - Top rates for a Charter of a private Luxury Catamaran in St Lucia

St Lucia yacht charter

While the tried and tested islands of the Caribbean offer much to the adventurous and upscale traveler, there are still many islands in the region that offer something unique and new to the avid holidaymaker. St. Lucia, a sovereign island state that was once occupied by France, is one such island, offering two worlds in one tiny island. On the northside of St. Lucia is a bustling region, filled with shops, cafes, and even the daily traffic. To the south is packed with lush vegetation, fabulous beaches, and beautiful natural scenery that includes rainforests and waterfalls. With the Caribbean Sea to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to its east, it's no surprise that St. Lucia is a favorite among yacht enthusiasts who love the island's unique mix of African, Caribbean, Indian, Spanish, French, and British culture.

Why charter a yacht in St Lucia?

Take your pick from a wide range of water activities such as surfing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and windsurfing; or jump from one island to another on the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean. Either way, a yacht charter in St. Lucia is truly the best way to experience what this Windward Island has to offer. To charter a yacht, whether for a one-day itinerary, or a one-week liveaboard, opens you up to a world of opportunity where rainforests meet high-end resorts on the beach, and local culture is a unique blend of European and Caribbean sensibilities.

What are yacht charter prices in St Lucia?

A yacht charter paradise, take your pick from small motor yachts, monohulls, huge catamarans, or the ultimate luxurious choice: a superyacht. A 3-cabin monohull that's 42 feet in length and accommodates a group of 8 adults can cost around $12,200 for 7 nights; while a 58-foot 6-cabin catamaran for 10 adults can cost around $25,700 for 7 nights. A 270-foot superyacht, on the other hand, equipped with everything you need for an unforgettable luxurious stay on the waters can cost around $840,000 for a week's charter in St Lucia.

When is the yachting season in St Lucia?

St. Lucia has a tropical climate and is governed by two seasons: the dry and wet seasons. Yachting season on the island, therefore, occurs during the dry season when the skies are clear and the waters are calm. The dry season is from December to May, making these months the best time for a yacht charter on the island.

St Lucia yacht charter for a day

St. Lucia is blessed with countless beaches and natural wonders, including waterfalls, mountains, rainforests, and plenty of nearby islands. A full day yacht charter can take you to many attractions and sites in St. Lucia, but if you must visit the top beaches, then a yacht charter for a day around the western coast is the best itinerary. The most popular is the Reduit, which is on Rodney Bay. Locals and tourists alike love this beach for its proximity to the shops and restaurants.

A quick trip to Reduit onboard your yacht charter can start your cruise followed by a stop at Jalousie Beach, which offers white sands, crystal blue waters, and a stunning setting between the twin Gros Piton and Petit Piton volcanic peaks. You can also head to the Pigeon Island National Park, which is quiet and uncrowded, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. If you want to venture inland, you can also climb to the vantage point to see the historic Fort Rodney ruins, as well as views of the island Martinique.

St Lucia yacht charter overnight

An overnight yacht charter in St. Lucia brings you to an island with a safe anchorage, where your yacht can stay on the bay and sleep under the stars or in the comforts of your luxury cabin. For an overnight yacht charter, a definite must is the coastal town of Soufriere. This historic town on the western coast features a wealth of hot springs and mineral baths, pretty beaches, bike trails, and sugar plantations that are a must to explore. It is also home to the Diamond Botanical Gardens, one of the top attractions to visit in St. Lucia.

Spend an entire day in this town, visiting the Botanical Gardens, the historical sites such as the town square, then spend a late afternoon on its beaches before heading back to your yacht. In the morning, visit the famed Marigot Bay, where old-Hollywood movies were filmed due to the bay being the epitome of an idyllic Caribbean beach with its palm trees, white sand beach, and perfectly clear crystal blue waters. Enjoy a few hours on this bay, before making your way back to Rodney Bay.

St Lucia yacht charter for a week

If you're heading to St. Lucia to have an exciting, adventure-packed, or for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation, then a one-week liveaboard on board a luxury yacht charter is the best option on the island. Here is a sample itinerary for an unforgettable week-long yacht cheer in St. Lucia:

Day 1: Pigeon Island

The Pigeon Island National Park features beautiful beaches, military ruins, and fantastic views from the vantage point of signal Peak. Spend a day on this island on your first day and night on your week-long yacht charter.

Day 2: Pitons Bay

Gros Piton and Petit Piton are two volcanic plugs with emerald green peaks that rise from the blue sea. Hike your way along the Piton ridge and enjoy spectacular views from the vantage points. You can also enjoy the beautiful secluded beaches.

Day 3: Bequia

Head to Admiralty Bay in Bequia and dive at the famous Wall, a 130-feet deep dive spot and home to sea turtles, lobsters, rays, and eels. Visit Port Elizabeth town with its charming waterfront, filled with shops and boutiques.

Day 4: Union Island

Dubbed as the "Tahiti of the West Indies," the island is home to a mountain that's 900 feet above sea level, which is Mount Parnassus. The island is rich in vegetation, fruits, and seafood, making it the perfect midpoint stop for onboard supplies. Its beaches are also idyllic, with white sands and swaying palm trees.

Day 5: Tobago Cays Marine Park

This marine park features 5 uninhabited islands, fantastic scuba diving spots, and home to the Baradel Turtle Sanctuary, and Petit Tabac, famously known as a Pirates of the Caribbean film location.

Day 6: Mustique

This secluded island is only 1400-acres, but its beautiful scenery provides a perfect overnight anchorage for your last night in the waters. Britannia Bay is excellent for fishing and if you want to enjoy inland, hiking and horseback riding along the trails are a must.

Day 7: Rodney Bay

Before heading back to Rodney Bay, cruise along St. Vincent and the beautiful Young Island, which is home to a private resort. Only 35 acres, Young Island, offers crystalline waters and a serene wildlife reserve.

Wedding yacht charter in St Lucia

There are so many venues for a beautiful wedding in St. Lucia, such as a plantation wedding, a resort wedding, a private villa wedding, a private beach, or a yacht charter for a wedding. Whether you need a wedding yacht charter to take you and your guests to a private island, or a secluded beach, a yacht charter will definitely provide you with unforgettable memories in St. Lucia.

Luxury yacht holiday in St Lucia

Home to luxury resorts with private islands and beaches, it is no surprise that St. Lucia is also home to luxury yachts that act as floating resorts in their own rights. Complete with everything you need to have a luxurious yacht holiday, these superyachts feature fully-equipped gyms, Jacuzzis, spas, and spacious decks that allow you to party, lounge, and enjoy the time of your lives.

With luxury at its finest, you are treated like royalty from the minute you step into the marina, till you step off from a one-week liveaboard, or even for just an overnight itinerary. St. Lucia is that small island in the Caribbean that's a hidden gem. One of the crown jewels of the West Indies is the best way to truly enjoy what the island and its surrounding waters have to offer through a yacht charter.

Chartering a Yacht In the Caribbean

Chartering a yacht in the Caribbean is a dream for many, and I understand why. There’s a certain allure to sailing in crystal-clear waters, hopping from island to island at your own pace, while capturing the most beautiful Memories . When you’re looking to turn this dream into reality, the first step is to select the Right Yacht .

The Caribbean offers a variety of yachts, from Sleek Monohulls for an intimate sailing experience to spacious Catamarans for larger parties. Size matters, as does the style of your yacht, both impacting your comfort and the cost. Ask yourself what you need — a romantic getaway or a family excursion?

Timing is another crucial factor. The Caribbean has its high and low seasons, and this affects availability and price. High season, running from December to April, welcomes the best Weather but also the highest demand. Planning outside these months might offer savings and quieter seas.

ben's yacht services st lucia

When it comes to the companies offering these charters, do your homework. A company with a solid track record , positive reviews, and proper accreditation ensures peace of mind. Ask about their history, fleet maintenance, and customer service quality.

Costs can be tricky, often varying from one charter company to another. Typically, these fees include the yacht rental, insurance, and possibly a crew. However, confirm what exactly is covered, such as fuel, docking fees, and food. It’s best to clarify these details upfront to avoid surprises later on.

How much is it to charter a superyacht in the Caribbean?

Chartering a superyacht in the Caribbean offers an unparalleled experience of luxury, adventure, and breathtaking scenery, but it comes with a substantial price tag. The cost to charter a superyacht varies significantly based on several factors.

Typically, prices for a week-long charter can range from $100,000 to over $1 million. For example, smaller superyachts around 80-100 feet might start at $100,000 per week, while larger, more luxurious yachts exceeding 200 feet can cost upwards of $500,000 to $1 million or more per week.

Additionally, these base rates often do not include extra expenses such as fuel, food and beverages, docking fees, and crew gratuities, which can add another 25-30% to the total cost.

So here are some Key Factors Influencing the Cost of Chartering a Superyacht in the Caribbean

  • Size of the Yacht : Larger yachts with more extensive facilities and accommodations command higher prices.
  • Duration : Longer charters offer more time to explore but increase the overall cost.
  • Season : Peak seasons, typically during winter holidays and the New Year, drive prices higher due to increased demand.
  • Amenities and Services : Yachts equipped with luxury features such as pools, gyms, spas, and water sports equipment, as well as highly personalized services, will have higher rates.
  • Destination and Itinerary : Certain Caribbean destinations might have higher docking and marina fees, impacting the overall cost.
  • Crew and Gratuities : The professionalism and experience of the crew significantly affect the experience and can add a notable amount to the charter cost through customary tips.

By understanding these factors, potential charterers can better plan their budget and ensure a seamless, unforgettable experience cruising through the pristine waters of the Caribbean.

Finally, don’t overlook the legal side of things. Licensing, insurance, and safety regulations are paramount. Reputable charter companies will guide you through this to ensure compliance with local laws and regulations. Most times it may be best to sort the expertise of a qualified yacht agent , which is an option that many captains visiting the Caribbean region usually employ. These agents carry a wealth of knowledge and expertise that add to the seamless experience of visitors to the region. If you are visiting Saint Lucia , you may want to seek the expertise of the island’s ”Coolest Yacht Agent” .

Navigating Your Journey: Planning Your Trip and Onboard Experience

Once you’ve chosen the ideal Yacht for your Caribbean adventure, it’s time to map out your dream journey. Options for personalizing your itinerary are plentiful. Strike a balance between secluded bays for relaxation and bustling ports for a touch of local culture.

A yacht charter isn’t complete without a Skilled Crew . Importance here can’t be understated. From a knowledgeable Captain steering you to hidden gems to a Chef crafting local delicacies, the crew’s expertise can transform your trip. Make certain that your Charter Manager is thoroughly briefed on your preferences and any concerns regarding an efficient crew.

Safety is paramount on any maritime venture. Your charter company should provide you with an overview of safety protocols and emergency procedures. Ensure you’re comfortable with the processes and equipment designed to keep you safe on the water.

The onboard amenities of your yacht might include everything from jet skis to onboard spas. Consider what’s available and request any special items you desire. Remember, this voyage is yours to tailor.

While you immerse yourself in the luxury of a Private Yacht , it’s vital to respect the Caribbean’s delicate marine ecosystem. Follow best practices for waste disposal and wildlife interactions.

At the end of your journey is as important as the beginning. Know the checkout procedure well in advance. This can include refueling, cleaning, and damage checks. Return the yacht in the condition you received it to ensure a smooth disembarkation.

Should I charter a motor or sailing yacht in St. Lucia?

The choice between chartering a motor yacht or a sailing yacht in St. Lucia depends on your personal preferences, budget, and the type of experience you’re seeking. Both options have advantages, so consider the type of cruising experience you’re after. 

If you enjoy the serenity and experience of sailing, a sailing yacht can provide an authentic and peaceful journey through the Caribbean waters. Sailing yachts offer a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere, so you can enjoy the sound of the wind and waves while taking in the scenic beauty of St. Lucia. 

Motor yachts, however, offer greater speed and convenience, allowing you to cover more ground in less time. This can be advantageous if you have a tight itinerary or want to visit multiple locations in a shorter period. Many motor yachts also have luxurious amenities, spacious cabins, and a high comfort level. If you prefer a more lavish experience, a motor yacht might be the way to go.

Other types of boats can be rented for day trips in St. Lucia and surrounding areas. These could include a bareboat charter, a skippered yacht charter, and catamarans.

What is the best time for a luxury yacht charter in St. Lucia?

St. Lucia enjoys pleasant weather year-round, but the high season runs from December to April. This is the most popular time for luxury yacht charters in St. Lucia, as the weather is consistently beautiful, with warm temperatures, low humidity, and minimal rainfall. The calm sea conditions and gentle trade winds make it an ideal time for sailing. However, this popularity means that charter prices can be higher, and there might be limited availability, so booking well in advance is advisable. 

During the shoulder season (October and March to April), charterers can still enjoy beautiful conditions with fewer crowds. While there may be occasional showers, the overall weather is typically favorable.

The low season (May to October) falls within the hurricane season, so there’s a higher risk of tropical storms and hurricanes. While it’s the least crowded and least expensive time for charters, it is essential to monitor weather forecasts closely if you choose to charter during these months.

Where can I embark on my charter yacht in St. Lucia?

Rodney bay marina.

One of the most popular marinas for yacht charters in St. Lucia is well-equipped with amenities, including restaurants, bars, and provisioning services. It’s also conveniently located in the island’s northern part, with Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) and George F.L. Charles Airport (SLU) nearby.

Marigot Bay Marina Village

Marigot Bay is a beautiful and tranquil spot for yacht charters. The marina offers stunning views and a range of services, including restaurants and bars.

Castries Harbor

St. Lucia’s capital, Castries, offers a harbor where some charters may begin. It’s conveniently located for those arriving by air and wanting to embark in the capital.

What sets a St. Lucia yacht charter apart from other Caribbean destinations?

The natural beauty of St. Lucia truly knows no bounds. St. Lucia’s west coast is where you will find the island’s most beautiful beaches, including the lengthy panorama of Reduit and the southerly Anse Chastanet. The Ti Kaye Resort & Spa is not far from there, a resort you can visit by superyacht and step ashore for a luxurious spa treatment. Wellness is a top priority on the island of St. Lucia. Other spa options include the Rainforest Spa at Sugar Beach, located right between the Pitons and the Marigot Bay Spa Village. The latter is located in a beautiful bay, where the deep water turns from jade to gold as the sun sets, and the sound of tree frogs and music ricochets across the water from Hurricane Hole – Marigot Bay’s best bar.

St. Lucia is famous for its iconic twin peaks, the Pitons, which rise dramatically from the sea. These UNESCO World Heritage-listed landmarks provide a stunning backdrop for your yacht charter and offer excellent hiking and diving opportunities. The islands’ volcanic past has created unique attractions, such as the Sulphur Springs mud baths and the drive-in volcano. These experiences are distinctive to the island and make it a bucket-list destination for seasoned travelers.

What is the official language of St. Lucia?

The official language of Saint Lucia is English. English serves as the primary language for government, education, business, and everyday communication on the island. While there may be various local dialects spoken informally among the population, English is the language of instruction in schools and is widely understood and spoken by the majority of residents.  

What can I expect from the weather on a St. Lucia yacht charter vacation?

St. Lucia Yacht Charters

St. Lucia Yacht Charters

For the adventurous travelers, the ones who find lazing in  standard yacht charter destinations or sightseeing in a tourist town too  boring to call a vacation, a St. Lucia yacht charter is absolutely  perfect. This small gem in the Windward islands rests between Martinique  and St. Vincent, on the outer edge of the curve of training islands  towards South America. Sitting close to the equator and influenced by  the trade winds year round, St. Lucia is a perfect place to go sailing  or to charter a motor yacht. 12 Knots offers the highest quality  charters with luxury amenities, crew assistance, and other services to  ensure your vacation is smooth sailing.

From trekking the wild jungles to tackling waves on the open ocean,  St. Lucia brings sailors and outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity of a  lifetime. With so much to do and see, you’ll probably come back to the  island more than once if you get the chance. St. Lucia is a hidden  wonder of the Caribbean. Its rich history, ideal climate, exotic  landscapes and wildlife offer a treat for anyone who has a love for the  island lifestyle. A sailing vacation is just one way to experience the  island, but many say that a private yacht charter provides the most  freedom and authenticity when visiting the Caribbean for the first, or  the hundredth time. You won’t be disappointed choosing St. Lucia for  your next sailing vacation.

History of St. Lucia

St. Lucia was first inhabited by the Caribs, an indigenous  tribal people who controlled much of the Caribbean islands. However,  French and English settlers arrived in the 1660s, and fought over  ownership of the land for several decades. France and England fought  over most of the Caribbean until the Treaty of Paris. St. Lucia switched  rulers over fourteen times before 1814, and is sometimes called the  "Helen of the West Indies" after the famous Helen of Troy. While Britain  gained final control of St. Lucia, the French were the ones to name it.  Saint Lucia was chosen to honor Saint Lucy of Syracuse, and is the only  country in the world to be named after a woman.

The island was solely British territory until the late 1950s, when it  became a part of the Federation of the West Indies. This Federation  allowed European countries to maintain control of their territories, yet  gave some freedom over internal affairs to the states. However, St.  Lucia fought for sovereignty and in 1979 received it. Saint Lucia is now  an independent state, and a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.  Though it gained independence from the European countries, St. Lucia  still carries much of the history and culture from its ancestors. From  the first Caribs to the settling French and English, St. Lucia is a  wonderful blend of European sophistication with the island carefree  lifestyle.

Geography and Wildlife

St. Lucia was not always a luscious rainforest island with  wildlife and beautiful seascapes. Its origins come from volcanic  eruptions and continental shifts to form the craggy peaks and mountains  that shape the island’s inland. St. Lucia is significantly more rugged  than most of the islands, with its highest peak, Mount Gimie, reaching  over 950 metres (3,120 feet) above sea level. This provides a beautiful  backdrop for sailors as they cruise along the shoreline looking for  adventure.

Two towering mountains, the Pitons, make a statement on the island’s  coastline. They sit between Soufrière and Choiseul on the western side,  and act as a landmark for sailors  to know they’ve arrived at St. Lucia.  However, these two peaks are not even the greatest sight in St. Lucia.  You’ll have to travel to the Sulphur Springs in Soufrière to see the  world’s only drive-in volcano. The Sulphur Springs is one of the only  places where you can take a trip into a volcano’s hot springs and see  the natural ecosystem up close.

In addition to the beautiful landscapes, you’ll be surrounded by  exotic wildlife on your St. Lucia yacht charter. All sorts of tropical  animals, from dangerous reptiles including boa constrictors and  fer-de-lance snakes, to the more tame ones like the iguana, and the  hundreds of tropical birds that decorate the skies, can be found here.  St Lucia is home to a very rare species of lizard, the St. Lucia  Whiptail. This creature wasn’t discovered until 1958, and it only  inhabits the southern portion of the island around Vieux Fort. This  lizard is both rare and beautiful, characterized by white spots and a  vibrant tail and underbelly. Rodents like manicao and mongoose also  graze along the forest floor and are a common sight along the hiking  trails on St. Lucia.

Culture and Local Attractions

Culture and Local Attractions

St. Lucia is a wonderful melting pot of African, East Indian,  French, and English culture. Because of its long-lasting British rule,  the official language of St. Lucia is English. However, most of the  population also speak a Saint Lucian-specific French Creole, known  locally as Patois, or"Patwa." Much of the music and literature from St.  Lucia natives is written in the Antillean Creole language. You may be  able to pick up some of the dialect during your sailing vacation, or  appreciate the beauty of the native language in the traditional song and  dance of St. Lucia, exhibited in their many festivals and street  markets.

Music and dance are an integral part of the St. Lucian culture. The  island hosts several different festivals throughout the year to honor  the history, culture, and indigenous customs of the people who lived  there. The La Rose and La Marguerite celebrate different secret  societies and fraternal organizations on the island. St. Lucia also  holds an annual carnival to celebrate before Lent, as many other  Caribbean islands do. However, the biggest festival on the island is the  Saint Lucia Jazz Festival. This festival brings musicians from all  across the Caribbean. In addition to jazz, St. Lucia is a fertile  creative ground for music genres such as Calypso, Soca, Dancehall,  Reggae, Zouk, Salsa, and indigenous folk music.

If you’re looking for more outdoor attractions during your yacht  charter in St. Lucia, visit Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens. These  gardens are in bloom year round because of the perfect growing  conditions on the island. You can see a variety of tropical flowers,  trees, and bushes while visiting. Then if you have time, take a nature  hike to the Diamond Waterfall or visit the spa on site for a relaxed  afternoon treat.

The other main outdoor attraction you should visit on your St. Lucia  sailing vacation is Pigeon Island National Park. This park features  walking trails, military ruins dating back to the 1600s, stunning  beaches and a local restaurant where you can try the local food and  drink. Of course, as a famed sailing destination, St. Lucia has plenty  of places where you can reserve boat trips, go ziplining, rent a kayak,  or do just about anything else your islander heart desires.

Nearby Islands

St. Lucia is right in the middle of the Windward Islands. This  part of the Caribbean is very close to South America, and rests just  above the equator, making a perfect place for sailing all throughout the  year. It is warm and winds are strong, and the islands here are close  enough to visit each one during your private yacht charter vacation. St.  Lucia is surrounded by three other main islands, all within a day or  two’s sailing trip from the 12 Knots port at the Rodney Bay Marina.

Sailing south of St. Lucia you will eventually meet Saint Vincent.  This island is surrounded by several underwater volcanoes, and the  inland is covered in tropical rainforest. The beaches here are unique,  because the sand is unlike most other islands in the Caribbean. It is  95% black, because the sand originates from the volcanic rock basalt.  St. Vincent is a wonderful place to explore the jungles or take a nap on  the hot sand.

To the north is Martinique, an island of heavy French influence. When  walking down the streets of Martinique, you’ll likely see the latest  fashions from the Paris runways, and smell pastries and fine French  cuisine from the local bistros. However, this island hasn’t lost its  true flavor, as you can find delicious seafood almost anywhere on the  island. Like many of the Caribbean islands, St. Lucia specializes in  spiced seafood and unique dishes with parallels to African and Indian  cuisine. Many sailors’ favorite part of visiting St. Lucia during a  yacht charter is savoring the local food and meeting with the islanders  to learn about their unique lifestyle.

If you sail southwest, you will find Barbados. This beautiful island  of the Lesser Antilles is home to a variety of foods, flora, and fun  activities that your whole crew will enjoy. The island has many  different festivals throughout the year, and several outdoor excursions  including beach horseback riding, swimming with sea turtles, and  explorations through the island’s jungles and beach gardens.

Motor Yacht Charters in St. Lucia

12 Knots Yachting Club offers sailing boats, catamarans, and  crewed yachts for those who want to explore and enjoy St. Lucia. Whether  you’re looking for a short, hassle-free sailing vacation or are looking  for a challenge to test your skill, 12 Knots has a charter perfect for  you. 12 Knots offers several different sailing and motor yachts, each  with optional amenities including crew assistance and watersport  equipment rentals.

St. Lucia is a great place for beginner and advanced sailors alike.  The weather is governed by the northeast trade winds. The best time for  sailing is in the beginning of the year, from December to May, because  the rain showers and thunderstorms are less prevalent. The rainy season  lasts typically from June until November. Because of its proximity to  the equator, temperatures in St. Lucia hover around 29 °C (84.2 °F) year  round. In the wintertime the northeast trade winds travel at a steady  10 knots to a livelier 25 knots in the summer. Wind speed and strength  increases as you reach the northern ends of the islands.

We recommend beginners plan their trip during the winter or spring,  as summer and fall may be too windy or rainy for a novice to want to  venture. However, temperatures are perfect year round and no matter when  you choose to visit, St. Lucia will have a unique adventure waiting for  you. 12 Knots helps you plan your trip, making it an easy sailing  experience filled with luxury and laughter. We offer luxury as well as  bareboat yachts, and motorboats and yachts for those less experienced in  sailing. However, if learning to sail interests you (especially after  taking your first Caribbean sailing vacation), 12 Knots Yachting Club  has a sailing school, where you can learn the ropes of exploring the  open ocean.

12 Knots invites you to book a yacht charter and explore St. Lucia  with us. Our charter fleet of sailing yachts are perfect for families,  friends, or solo travelers. We offer affordable weeklong trips, where  you can be guided to the best destinations in and around St. Lucia, or  venture off on your own into the Caribbean Sea. From small bareboat  vessels to grand luxury yachts, 12 Knots has everything you’re looking  for. Meet us at the Rodney Bay Marina for the St. Lucia vacation of a  lifetime.
