Cuba Yacht Charter

Cuba Yacht Charter

Regardless of whether you fly directly into Cuba, or board your vessel in Florida and transit the 85 nautical miles across the Gulf Stream through the Florida Straits, Havana is the perfect place to start. You can easily spend 2-3 days exploring this multi-faceted city, and only scratch the surface. It’s your choice: explore the city? Or explore the coast?



Meet your yacht at Marina Hemingway, named after, Ernest Hemingway, who
loved Cuba and lived on the island for many years. The marina is just a 30-minute drive from downtown Havana, where you can wander the streets, taking in the curious contradiction of its fading colonial architecture and vibrant culture. That night, arrive at the legendary. Tropicana club in a vintage car and enjoy Latin music, dancing and plenty of Cuban rum.



Spend another day in this fascinating city and visit Papa Hemingway’s favorite
drinking haunts of El Floridita and La Bodeguita del Medio. Take a short drive out of town and you can visit a cigar factory, where the manager reads the day’s newspapers to his workers as they roll cigars – a beautiful tradition.


Rural Cuba

Head west from Havana to discover the tobacco plantations of the Viñales valley and the pine forest covered mountains of the Sierra de los Órganos. It’s a beautiful, slow-paced corner of rural Cuba, a wonderful contrast to Havana.


Maria La Gorda

The yacht will cruise onwards to the beautiful María la Gorda and anchor it the crystal clear waters where the coral heads are just off the bow. This is the place for guests to jump in the water and enjoy fantastic snorkeling, or scuba divers can visit Lost Paradise – a vibrant wall dive with a variety of swim-throughs and caves.


Cayo Largo

Continuing east, guests can enjoy the tranquility of the small island of Cayo Largo, which is thought to
have once been used as a base for the real pirates of the Caribbean. With clear waters and pristine beaches, it is the perfect place to make the most of your yacht’s extensive collection of water toys. Enjoy dinner on board, likely you’ll be the only yacht in the harbor.


Jardines de la Reina

Today, it’s time for more world-class diving or snorkeling – the
kind that few others have experienced. Jardines de la Reina is a 150-mile mangrove and coral island chain forming the third largest barrier reef in the world. Guests can snorkel or dive in a marine park bursting with vivid corals and exotic fish


Santiago de Cuba

Return to city life with the bustle of Santiago de Cuba, which is known for its Afro-Cuban
influences and colonial architecture. A fleet of classic cars will provide a memorable drive to the airport. Reluctantly make your way back to the modern world, with glorious memories – and maybe a few Cuban cigars, too.
