For the past two years, YachtLife has organized trips to the Caribbean to introduce young professionals to yachting culture and the experience of a lifetime.
Sailing may be perceived as the hobby of the privileged, but YachtLife is determined to acquaint this way of life, sport and relaxation to a new and diverse group of people.
During the vast majority of the trip, our boats are anchored or docked at a pristine beach or luxurious yacht club.
Trips in between destinations are approximately 2 to 3 hours in length. The Caribbean waters are generally calm and land is always in sight. It’s an ideal introduction to sailing and YachtLife. For more details, view the itineraries for the British Virgin Islands and Bahamas excursions.
If you happen to be an experienced sailor and would like to be a Captain or First Mate on the trip, use our contact form to let us know.
You don’t need to know how to swim to be a part of YachtLife.
There are lifejackets on board for each passenger and safety is always the captain’s number one priority. On arrival day, we’ll have a brief safety meeting to address any questions.
Once you have secured your spot, you’ll receive details by email about what time you must arrive at the destination airport and what time you should book your flight home.
Be sure to check weather forecasts online before you pack.
Every boat is responsible for cooking meals with the provided groceries.
One or two people on board may volunteer to be the chefs for the week or the whole boat may decide to rotate cooking responsibilities among each passenger.
Keep in mind that if you aren’t doing the cooking, your help cleaning up and tidying the common areas is always appreciated.
At several destinations like Scrub Island Resort and Bitter End Yacht Club there are restaurant/bars/dining options, if you prefer.
Your vacation package includes any meals on-board; the cost of any meals onshore is your responsibility.
Check out the floorplan of the yachts. Each cabin sleeps two passengers in a double bed and has a bathroom (called the head) adjacent to it.

If you would like to book a single cabin to yourself, select the Individual Ticket (solo cabin) option when reserving your spot. Linens and towels for the shower will be provided.
