Like a fine wine and great meal, where and when you charter can elevate your experience to a whole new level. Different seasons bring different locations to life in entirely different ways. With a full year ahead of us, we thought we’d share some of our favorite pairings and what makes each of these places and times so special.
So, where in the world will you go in 2016? With a variety of options for boaters and non-boaters alike, The Moorings is the ultimate choice for a getaway that’s just as unique as it is unforgettable.
Spring - Tahiti
Nestled away in the heart of the South Pacific, Tahiti offers a getaway that’s far removed from everyday life. April and May are ideal charter times with gentle easterly trade winds and perfect warm temperatures in low to mid 80s. Furthermore, Tahiti is rife with sapphire blue waters and brochure-worthy beaches like famous Bora Bora.
This makes this Polynesian Paradise an exotic hotspot for everything from snorkeling and diving to paddle boarding, fishing and more. Aboard a Moorings yacht, you’ll have the freedom to experience all of this and see why so many travelers fall in love with Tahiti.
Summer – Croatia
Croatia is a summer destination that exudes “cool” in more ways than one. Its long coast along the Adriatic Sea yields a cool climate, while its storied history and stunning scenery make Croatia one of the coolest up-and-coming travel destinations of 2016. The most popular time to charter here is between May and September when the gentle northerly winds prevail and temperatures stay right in the mid 70’s.
Once you arrive, you’ll depart from our base in Agana and discover a world where massive castles and ancient fortresses are juxtaposed with blue water beaches, chic island villages and breathtaking natural beauty at virtually every turn.
Autumn - Belize
Stretching along the Caribbean coast of Central America, Belize is an adventurer’s playground packing a wealth of things do both on and off the water. Divers will delight in the Mesoamerican Reef (one of the largest in the world), a protected underwater ecosystem teeming with hundreds of friendly fish species, colorful coral formations and crystal-clear waters.
The Placencia Peninsula offers miles of secluded soft-sand beaches flanked by several bars and restaurants. The weather here is excellent all throughout the year, but November and December are ideal since they’re part of the dry season and just before the peak travel time.
Winter – Thailand
Thailand provides an exotic escape from the cold that’s rife with breathtaking beaches and natural wonders unlike anywhere else on earth. From December to March, there’s a cooling wind that keeps Thailand’s typical high temperatures, and humidity levels, at bay. Aboard a Moorings yacht, you’ll have unfettered access to secluded spots like Rai Le Beach that can only be reached by boat.
Relax in seclusion as you marvel at the massive limestone cliffs that shoot up from the bright blue water. Walk along the white sandy shore and be sure to catch the sunset as it sinks behind the cliffs off the waterfront.
