St John

As an island that’s two thirds national park. Nowhere does untouched beauty like St John. Crystal-white sands to welcome sunseekers. Immaculate reefs to spoil snorkelers. And wildlife abounds.

The Pristine Pick of the USVIs

It may be the smallest major US Virgin Island, but as a destination St John overdelivers. Flush with first-class anchorages, a YCO charter will stop at the likes of Maho Bay for an early morning swim with sea turtles. Or Reef Bay for a short hike to see its indigenous rock carvings. For some real indulgence, though, moor your Y.CO yacht among the secluded tranquillity of Cinnamon Bay. Sunsets rarely look this good.

Reasons to Visit St John

Stingrays, Seclusion and Star-Lit Skies

A luxury Y.CO yacht charter gets you to St John’s most treasured sights. So whether you want to swim with stingrays at Hansen Bay or sink into the soft, coral sands of Trunk Bay, you can chart a course to suit your mood. After seclusion? Take back deck sundowners at Salt Pond Bay. Unspoilt beaches, perhaps? Kayak to Mermaid’s Chair Beach. Still undecided? Here are three more reasons to charter a St John yacht.

Snorkelling at Maho Bay

Charter your Y.CO yacht to Maho Bay and breathe in the beauty. This coconut palm-lined cove has teal waters and bright-white sand. For many, the view is enough. But dive deeper for the real rewards. Fringed by reefs, you can snorkel past the electric-coloured coral and weave through the seagrass for a chance to spot the rarely seen Leatherback sea turtle.

The Sweetest Views in St John

Moor your yacht in Leinster Bay and find the stone remains of the Annaberg Plantation that dominate the hillside like a stronghold. Take the tender ashore to hike up and learn how St John’s history was shaped by sugar. The views from the top are the island's best. Cocooned in the tropical bay below is the islet of Waterlemon Cay – a great spot for a snorkel after the walk back down.

Cruise in to Cruz Bay

Famed for its vast national park and bountiful wildlife, St John isn’t short on nightlife either. Ask the skipper to cast anchor at Honeymoon Beach before taking the tender around to Cruz Bay. From here, the evening is yours. Stroll through the shops, stop for ceviche at Longboards or sip cocktails at Joe’s Rum Hut before heading back for a nightcap on your very own luxury deck.
