The Moorings puts Puerto Rico on the map for Australians looking for luxury yacht charters

February 8, 2017 Cruise Deals No Comments Email Email

Luxury yacht company, the Moorings has launched a new destination for 2017: Puerto Rico. A true haven for sailors, Puerto Rico’s unique Spanish Caribbean culture and idyllic cruising grounds offer an unmatched charter vacation experience.

A seven day itinerary will have you sampling the Spanish Virgin Islands, blessed with protected anchorages, well-preserved reefs, flourishing marine life populations, and uncrowded white sand beaches;such as those found on Isla Palominos, island of Culebra, Playa Tamarindo and Vieques.

Our ‘must do’ activities to do in Puerto Rico are:

The Rio Camuy Caves

Here, the world’s third largest underground river carves out kilometres of caverns and 220 caves.  Book an adventure operator to experience caving and spelunking the way it was done when the subterranean river was originally discovered. There are an additional 800 caves to find and if you do happen by one, it will be named after you!

Kayaking the mangroves in La Parguera

Tropical wildlife is in abundance including rare birds, crabs, lizards, manatees, dolphins, turtles, and all manner of fish. In La Parguera, there are more than 30 different islets – You will find there are areas where the trees join above you, forming eerie tunnels and waterways that’ll have you wanting to film them. La Parguera is also home to one of the world’s most vibrant bioluminescent bays where you can jump in and make like a glow stick.

Full Moon Zip lining in Mucaro

Arouse your inner batman and zipline under the full moon in the heart of east central Puerto Rico.

Surf in Rincón

In 1968 the World Surfing Championship was held here. The Atlantic meets the calmer Caribbean Sea to create waves amongst the world’s best and reaching around 30 foot.

Dive Las Cuevas of Desecheo

Here many undersea canyons, caves and arches make Desecheo a true playground for scuba divers. Forget the wildlife populated interior which is off limits because of military using it as a training ground with unexploded ordinance from the 1940s still intact.

Mona Island, the Galapagos of the Caribbean

This uninhabited ecological reserve offers many caves where you can find ancient carvings left by the Taino Indians who once lived there.

Cruising in Puerto Rico

With short travel distances and some of the Caribbean’s most pristine beaches, a yacht charter in Puerto Rico is idyllic. Enjoy line-of-sight navigation and year-round warm weather, and the solitude of uncrowded anchorages. The relatively compact cruising grounds, calm seas, and mild winds make this an ideal destination for charterers of all experience levels. Relish in secluded tranquillity and embrace freedom on the water with a holiday in this easily accessible charter paradise offering sheltered anchorages and sufficient moorings throughout.

A seven night itinerary with the Moorings is priced from $5,215 for up to six people on a private bareboat sailing yacht.

Feeling fancy? Why not opt for an all-inclusive Crewed Yacht Charter in Puerto Rico with the Moorings? Prices start from $19,110 for seven nights for up to six people and this covers a private Captain, gourmet Chef, all meals, snacks and beverages, water sports equipment, mooring fees and bean bags.
