A short flight from the continental United States will transpose you to “America’s Paradise”. Then, walk on the white sand beaches and swim in the turquoise blue waters of the Virgin Islands. Furthermore, they are consistently ranked among the top 10 in the world. Average wintertime temperatures of 83 F (28 C) invite the visitor to explore. Comparatively, temperatures in the summer do not vary much from the winter ones. You will then be able to explore the islands below and above water. It is in fact, a yacht charter dream come true.
