There’s a reason that the Dominican Republic is one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean, and it’s because it is overflowing with things to do! Here are some of our favourite things to do while on a yacht charter in the Dominican Republic.
One of the most attractive things about the Dominican Republic is its beautiful, warm weather year-round. You can embark on a yacht charter in the Dominican Republic at almost any time throughout the year as you’ll have average high temperatures of 28°C. You’ll experience the highest levels of precipitation in the summer months, so it’s best to visit between January and April or November to December when there is little to no rainfall.
Even if you have a licence to sail, having a skipper on board your Dominican Republic yacht charter will enhance your holiday experience. Skippers are nautical experts that will handle everything like docking, anchoring and navigating the vessel so that you can enjoy a worry-free holiday. But perhaps the best part about having a skipper on board is that they are usually locals of the area, which means that they can take you to see everything on your sailing itinerary and if you’re lucky, show you some hidden gems that tourists don’t know about. For worry-free sailing and a more customised holiday, choose a skippered vessel.
The type of vessel you choose for your boat rental in the Dominican Republic will depend on how much time you are planning to spend on board. If you only want to sail for a few days, we’d recommend a motorboat since they are typically rented by the day, and they are faster than other vessels, allowing you to see everything in no time. For a longer holiday, you’ll want a weekly charter such as a catamaran or a yacht. These spacious vessels are fully equipped with all of the amenities you’ll need to accommodate you throughout your stay. If you would like a more traditional sailing experience, a sailboat is a good option however, you should always choose one with a skipper since these boats are notorious for being difficult to navigate.
No matter what sort of vessel you’re looking for, you’re sure to find the best one to accompany you on your journey and make your yacht charter in the Dominican Republic a holiday to remember.
