This video showcases the U.S. Virgin Islands cruising grounds as they are today. All footage was filmed since the 2017 hurricane season with the latest imagery taken at Easter 2018.
Many Northern Caribbean industries were affected by the horrendous hurricanes of 2017; in the Virgin Islands we recognise that charter yachts could ink in the gap left by hotels closed for refurbishment. We encourage holiday makers, even wedding parties, to convey their vacation onto a floating hotel - their own charter yacht. We are lucky that the Virgin Islands’ charter industry depends on the natural beauty of its’ cruising grounds, which have bounced back with a remarkably green, and sparkly clean beauty. At the VI Professional Charter Association, we are happy to see the hope brought by charter guests spending their vacation in the Virgin Islands this year. Guests not only still want to seek the beauty of our quiet and pristine beaches, but also, they hope to help everyone rebuild. By viewing their charter as a form of hurricane relief charter guests can enjoy our beaches, bars and restaurants while contributing to the economy getting back on its feet – chartering for a cause.
