Good Morning, Good Morning! If you have been paying attention over the past year, you will know that this little write up is near and dear to my heart! In addition to all of my online work, I have also been working for the past year and a half with my boyfriend, Teddy, to build and develop his sailing business. And, I’m pleased to say today that he is FINALLY letting me write an article about all of our hard work and good times out there on the beautiful waters surrounding St. John. So, sit back, enjoy the views and sail away with us for a day on Sailing Asante….
Earlier this year, I shared with you a sneak peak of Voodoo, a brand new, custom-built, high performance 57 foot power catamaran. She boasts the status of being one of the largest catamarans in the world with outboard diesel engines. She calls St. John her home…And is beckoning you to come spend a day of luxury on board.
We ALL know how daunting a day of travel to the Virgin Islands can be! Especially when it comes to St. John. COVID Test, paperwork, probably at least two flights, paperwork review, taxi or rental car…And THEN you still need to take the barge or the ferry. And, figure out which one is going to work best for you and your family or friends. Well, what if I told you that, instead of dealing with ferries, you could end that lengthy travel day with a private luxury power boat ride, complete with icy cold beverages on board?
Good Morning Everyone! We have seasonally published a report in regards to restaurant closures during the peak months of hurricane season for the past few years. But, a question that I see popping up all over the place is in regards to boat charters during the off season.
During this time of year, a lot of the boat owners on St. John relocate and/or haul out their vessels for the off season months. There are a few reasons for this…For starters, some boat insurance actually requires that the vessel be outside of a certain “hurricane zone” during the peak times of year. Many boat owners will plan to haul out this time of year for scheduled maintenance or to simply take a vacation with the peace of mind that their boat is safe and strapped down in the event of a storm. This is all great for the safety of some of our favorite charter boats, but it leaves folks who are vacationing this time of year with slim pickins when it comes to going for a play day on the water during the off season months. So, I thought it might be time to start publishing a list of boats that are in the water and available for charter from August to November!
If you have been scouring websites and Facebook pages in an attempt to find the perfect charter for your boat day, then look no further! Shades of Blue Charters recently brought a newly remodeled, super fast and fancy vessel to the USVI and they will take you anywhere you want to go in our local waters!
I’m sure you’ve all been actively watching the COVID-19 statistics on St. John and wondering what it means for your travel plans. Governor Albert Bryan Jr. shared some insight today at the weekly press conference that will hopefully answer some of your questions!
Happy Fri-yay!!! We have been seeing A LOT of amazing yachts in the harbors over the past few weeks. I have been taking some pictures along the way and my curiosity got the best of me. So I did a little digging on these dream yachts and this is what I’ve found…..
Since the storms of 2017 swept boats from Cruz Bay harbor against the iconic shoreline adjacent to the ferry dock, questions have been buzzing about the progress of the Wharfside complex. Today, you’ll see the beach cleared of debris and construction work and popular businesses with their doors now open. But there are some new things happening at Wharfside as well!
A lot of you out there are probably in the midst of the beginnings of some chilly weather in the states. You’re likely starting to daydream about your annual winter warm up. Let the vacation planning begin! What better way to spend a day on St. John than being on the water aboard Love City’s newest luxury charter boat?
The Blue Marlin.
We have gone fishing on charters in the Caribbean, Florida, Great Lakes, and other places around the world. It seems on every fishing charter while waiting for the first bite, the conversation turns to wanting to catch a blue marlin (or big tuna).
