Jamaica luxury yacht charter

Jamaica is a fantastic superyacht charter destination thanks to its 350 miles of coastline and is an increasingly popular Caribbean destination.

While there are several marinas, only three are recommended as being fully secure – Port Antonio, the Montego Bay Yacht Club and Royal Jamaica Yacht Club.

Anchoring anywhere in Jamaica should be easy thanks to the sea-bottom which is usually turtle grass and sand. The different parts of Jamaica are all beautiful in their own right, with Montego Bay – nicknamed the ‘Hip Strip’ – probably the most well-known thanks to its abundance of luxury resorts.

The other areas shouldn’t be neglected though: Kingston may have a bad reputation for crime but it’s still the home of grand architecture and Jamaica’s government, while Ocho Rios is absolutely stunning thanks to its natural waterfalls, rivers and beaches.

For those not content to relax on the glorious beaches, an abundance of tropical fish, bright coral and warm, clear waters make the scuba diving in Jamaica really excellent. The reefs in Negril Marine Park, the Throne Room and Sharks Reef all come recommended, as do the man-made sunken ship reef in Ocho Rios and the famous Widowmaker’s Cave. The Montego Bay Marine Park was created in 1990 to help protect treasures such as these.

Jamaica hasn’t had a peaceful history, and it wasn’t until the 1834 Emancipation Act, made after several slave revolts, that things began to slowly change. The result of so many colonists and immigrants is an incredibly rich culture and vibrant people, with the language and cuisine a spicy mix of many different ethnicities.
