Island Thyme, Private & Custom Catamaran Sailing Charters




Let Us Help You In Planning Your Special Event or Celebration. Your charter vacation will be crewed with a Captain who will take care of your every need.  The dual hull structure of our Robertson and Caine Leopard 47 sailing catamaran provides a stable and smooth ride even in rough conditions. Enjoy chartering without the uncomfortable "heeling" of a traditional monohull vessel.  Our swim ladder provide easy access while snorkeling or swimming and an outdoor shower for rinsing off once you're back onboard.  There are  multiple seating areas, making even large groups feel comfortable.  The covered aft seating area provides shade and cover in the event of rain.   Because most of our guests prefer their own lunch we do not provide provisions other than water and in some cases soft drinks.  You are welcome to bring along anything you would like for the day. The choice is yours and we are happy to help you realize your travel dreams!

What to bring on your Charter Vacation

Passports.  For 3 day and week charters bring your Passports
.  Passports are required if you plan on visiting the British Virgin Islands.

Towels.  We do not provide towels so it’s a good idea to bring them with you for laying on the yacht, at the beach, getting out of the water, etc.

Cameras.  Bring your cameras or smartphone to capture all of the fun and action as you tour the beautiful USVI & BVI. Be ready to capture images of turtles, fish and other tropical marine life that swim your way!

Hats, Sunglasses, Cover-ups or T-Shirts.  You want to avoid getting a sunburn in the Caribbean sun so be sure to protect your face and skin from the harmful effects of the sun.

Flip-Flops.  Flip-flops are easy to kick off when you’ve got your toes in the sand!

• 
Snorkel Gear.  Bring your own snorkel gear if you prefer to use your own.

• 
Food and Drinks.  Bring whatever food and drinks you want.  We provide water while onboard our yacht. Some charters will have local complimentary drinks on board depending on time of charter.

Infant Life Vests.  If you have an infant or young child under 30 lbs, please bring an approved infant/child life vest. We do not carry infant life vests on our boats. Life vests we provide by law are designed for passengers weighing more than 30 lbs.

Music. Bring your MP3/iPod/smartphone with your playlists to plug into our sound system. Our crew can also provide the perfect Caribbean music as you sit back, relax and take it easy!
