The Best Destinations for Your Yacht Trip

Purchasing California Yacht Insurance should be the first step; picking out your next destination is the next, more difficult one. Mariners General Insurance Group has all of the insurance angles covered so you just need to worry about what matters mos:your ultimate vacation away from home. Yacht insurance makes sure you’re covered while taking those trips outside of your comfort zone. Do you travel north, south, west or east?  Some of the biggest charter yacht destinations in the world include Canada, Australia, Greece and Italy. Whether you’re traveling the Caribbean or the Mediterranean, check out some of the best yachting destinations in the world, according to Cruising World.


There’s many places to visit in the Caribbean, including the Bahamas, Cuba, Leeward Islands and Windward Islands. While those are only some places to visit, they are definitely some of the more notable places to check out as a tourist. The Windward Islands is perfect for sailors and the Leeward Islands offers even more hot spots for sailors to visit. The Bahamas is full of endless islands to sail and explore, meaning that you’ll have plenty of places and time to cruise around. Cuba was originally off-limits to Americans, but it’s now a hot destination to visit.

US & Canada

If you want to stick closer to home, North America has a fair amount to offer, from the Intracoastal Waterway of the US, Southern New England, the Great Lakes of the US and Canada, the Atlantic’s Bermuda and Nova Scotia, Canada. The Intracoastal Waterway has spectacular sailing through the east coast while Southern New England offers you the opportunity to explore the coast of Cape Cod. The Great Lakes have some of the best freshwater fishing in the world and many unique areas to explore, with some leading into Canada and some leading into full blown cities. Bermuda is one of the most popular sailing destinations and Nova Scotia is quaint and full of history.


Visit the Mediterranean in Europe and cruise past pieces of beautiful history. The Greek Isles has challenging sailing, but worthwhile views. Greece holds thousands of islands to explore, each special and unique in their own way.  

South Pacific

Check out places that have been hardly touched by man, including Fiji, French Polynesia, New Zealand and parts of Australia. Cruising yachts from all over the world travel to Fiji for some well-needed relaxation time. Other islands such as Marquesas, French Polynesia, or parts of Tahiti, are much harder to get to because of the volcanic terrain, but are well worth the travel. Many parts of French Polynesia are still untamed by modern man. Tasmania, Australia, offers world class sailing while the Whitsunday Islands offer white sandy beaches and a Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

No matter where you choose to travel this year, make sure that you and your vessel stay safe on the water. Protect yourself with a comprehensive Yacht Insurance policy, and have a great time!
