Rocketeer will be leaving The Lesser Antilles for the Western Caribbean in March 2015 to commence our round-the-world tour. The first leg of the trip will be from the island of St Maarten to Curacao in early March 2015. We will be joined on this first leg of our journey by an adventuresome group of explorers from the UK. Subsequent ports we plan to visit in the Caribbean include Cartagena, San Blas Islands, and Panama. Stay tuned for more!

Snorkeling and Diving
The snorkeling and scuba diving is unmatched in this part of the Caribbean and is a popular activity while on your Caribbean Sailing Vacation. Guests aboard Rocketeer are lucky to have a crew that knows exactly where to go to see the most beautiful fish and amazing coral formations. Whether you are an avid diver or beginner snorkeler, we will be sure you see plenty of Caribbean fish and sea-life while on your sailing vacation with us.
St Martin Sailing Charter Vacation
Make the Caribbean island of St Martin one of your stops while on your sailing charter vacation. We love the French town of Marigot on St Martin. While here, take a quick climb up to Fort Louis after breakfast for a breathtaking view, then a stop to buy baguettes at the Patisserie on the way back to the catamaran.
The beautiful island of St Martin is a 60/40 split between France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands (French: Saint-Martin; Dutch: Sint Maarten). With each area of the island offering a separate experience. Explore the panoramas of our colorful scenery dominated by flaming bright red, orange and yellow flamboyant trees. Take a walk on the wild side of Saint-Martin and explore its hills on a zip line or by horse back. Pick a sun kissed mango dripping with cool juices or a coconut filled with nourishing water. A wonderful possible stop for your St Martin Sailing Charter Vacation.
Honeymoon Sailing Caribbean
Spoil the bride and groom with a honeymoon sailing in the Caribbean. An all inclusive week sailing the Caribbean for your honeymoon is an experience you will never forget. Priceless sunsets, ever-changing scenery, champagne, wine, and award winning food will help make this the perfect sailing honeymoon.
What a nice treat it was to have these delightful newlyweds on board for their honeymoon! They love action and Rocketeer made it possible to visit three spots in the VI most days. Not everyone wants to keep that kind of pace but we can if you like, something most of the crewed charter fleet can’t imagine.
Saba Island Sailing Vacation
Choose our Saba Island Sailing Vacation. It is hard to imagine the determination and ingenuity required to develop this ruggedly beautiful island of steep cliffs ascending from the sea to the clouds. Saba is a unique stop on a Leeward Islands sailing vacation. The island is almost round with no natural harbor, so a stop to this beautiful island while on your sailing vacation is only possible when the weather is settled.
St Eustatius Sailing Vacation
St Eustatius sailing is very special. We like this island because it is off the beaten path. The town is classic Dutch Caribbean unspoiled by tourism and the people are very friendly and helpful. Our favorite activity here is to visit an extinct volcano “The Quill” for a beautiful hike either into the cone itself or along the rim. Always a fun stop during your Caribbean sailing vacation!
Food Award for Crewed Yacht Charter
Well we did it again. Rocketeer won another culinary award, this time at the St Thomas charter yacht show. Food award for crewed yacht charters. We served two delicious dishes, crabmeat samosas and coconut shrimp with coconut, mango, and apple chutney presented in coconut shells on a bed of banana leaves. So we have entered two culinary contests and won a prize at each. Let the judges decide! The food on Rocketeer ranks in the top tier of the crewed yacht charter fleet. We invite you to join us soon to see just how good it is!
Sailing Charter with Porpoises
We were lucky enough to have porpoises swimming with us on our Caribbean sailing charter.
