Chartering in the Caribbean


Operating in the Caribbean

Water Sports and Activities
As you would expect in the Caribbean we have a profusion of water sports and activities available during your sailing vacation!
SUP, Kayaks, iFloats, Noodles, Skis, Sea Scooters
Try out the hot new trend on the water by using one of La Grande Bellezza’s Stand-Up Paddle Boards (SUP’s). Instead of the traditional surfboard style, where you paddle out to the wave with your arms and stand up to catch it, on a stand-up paddle board (SUP) you stand up the entire time and use your paddle to get around. You don’t even need waves to have a great time on an SUP. Ideal for exploring deserted beaches and coves.
Paddleboards are a fabulous charter accessory. The SUP is an easy and stable paddle for first timers, perfect to explore idyllic creeks and bays with a great vantage point to see fish, without putting a mask on! The boards are fun to paddle longer distances, “Do a Downwinder” or catch a wave for the more experienced paddler. They also make an excellent mode of transport to head to a bar or beach…..or just to relax on, or even yoga on, tethered to the back of your yacht. Adjustable length paddles ensures a perfect fit for all.
Our double kayak come equipped with seat backs, bottle holders and gear storage giving you the potential to do a grand tour of the bays from your yacht, or a convenient way to get to the beach. Alternatively, their stability lends itself to trying a spot of fishing . The highly durable and lightweight combination make it an easy accessory to add to your charter and adds another dimension to your adventure.
Kayaks, Paddleboards, iFloats, Noodles and Sea Scooters are a wonderful way to enjoy anchorages at the end of the day in peace and tranquility, or take a picnic to a deserted beach … and its great exercise too!  
iFloats & iSki: La  Grande Bellezza has 18ft. iFloats on board
Learn to Kiteboard
Most islands where we charter have kiteboarding companies that can  provided lessons, guided excursions, and feature the latest in equipment and apparel.
We don’t expect you to get airborne on your first lesson, but after a little guidance from the experts you may be tempted to try it! We can arrange to have a windsurfer on board for your arrival, and before you leave the dock an instructor from your selected water sports equipment provider will meet with you at your boat and give you some tips on windsurfing (should you need them). Most companies have first-rate intermediate and advanced windsurfing equipment available. 
If you can’t live without cycling or biking, then you can rent one from a variety of companies depending on where your charter is. Most have a wide range of cycling and biking equipment available to suit all sizes and budgets. Cycling/biking is a great way to get around on some of the larger islands that you might want to explore, and avoid the expense of renting a car.
Fly Fishing
“If you want to fly fish there are Fly Fishing Outfitters throughout the islands
Dining Out
There’s a tremendous variety of bars, cafes and restaurants on all the islands. Your Captain and Chef will be able to show you where they are. 
Helicopter Tours
Helicopter tours are available on most if not all islands.
Scuba Snorkel
Enhance your scuba diving adventure with local companies on the islands. These instructors are PADI certified and intimately know the best and most beautiful dive sites for scuba diving. Your Captain can  organize a pre-arranged rendezvous with La Grande Bellezza.
The Caribbean may not be the first place you think of as a surfer’s paradise, many of the islands have several excellent locations for surfers depending on the time of year. For more information speak to your Captain. 
Zip Line
Many of the islands have zip line adventures. The eco-friendly tour involves being hooked to a double line that takes individuals through a soaring path in the sky, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding islands. 
Get Married
Thinking of getting married before, during or after your sailing vacation? We can assist you with local wedding coordinators who can assist in planning your special day. 
Limin’ (taking it easy Caribbean style!) – after all you’re on vacation so you can take a breather.

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA — Richardson Charter – Captain Nick Wilson & Chef Kate VanVorst

A Family Memory to Cherish on La Grande Bellezza.

We just wanted to let you know what an amazing time we had aboard La Grande Bellezza! The vacation was very much enjoyed by all. Unlike any other family vacation we’ve ever had, we were exceptionally pleased by the cleanliness and upkeep of the boat. We were especially happy with Nick and Kate. Nick was very knowledgeable as Captain and Kate was so accommodating and friendly. She cooked amazing dishes for us and was able to adjust to everyone’s particular diet. We were pampered and spoiled always. Thanks so much for jumping through hoops to make this vacation happen last minute. It is a family memory we will cherish always!

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA — Edgar Londono Charter – Captain Nick Wilson & Chef Kate VanVorst

Charter Dates: 06/30/2021 to 07/07/2021
Broker: Emily Mack
Area Cruised: St. Thomas – USVI

This is so far, the best Boat we have chartered; great distribution in all 3 levels, looks like brand new, rooms are very comfortable (from the five rooms, 3 of them look like Master bedrooms!) and we experienced one of the best sailing we ever had. The Crew was very friendly and with a great attitude for service. We found Kate with an exceptional energy to serve and Nick and her were all the time looking for ways to make this trip unforgettable for us. Both are very professionals in what they do. We hope we will be able to charter with them next year.

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA — Rodemich Charter – Captain Tony Ambrose & Chef Kate VanVorst

Great trip! All guests had a wonderful time. It was my first time doing this type of trip. It was excellent on every aspect! Tony is an excellent captain. Felt very safe and confident in his skills. Kate did a good job on food! Everything was very tasty! The crew worked their butts off! Although no prior experience with other boats, our boat seemed to be in great working order with plenty of amenities. Tony and Kate do a great job with communication prior to charter with emails and FaceTime ironing out menu/drink requests. The crew was amazing! Tony and Kate worked well together and improved teamwork everyday. They wanted to make sure we had a great time and aimed to please! They both have awesome personalities and were a perfect fit for us! We left all feeling like family and that is the best compliment ever!! We LOVED them! Like said above the crew was exceptional. In addition “Captain Tony” made use of the fishing equipment and this was a significant addition to making our experience even more memorable! I have and will recommend such a trip to all who inquire. Thanks for the memories, JN

Andres Review 2019

Andres is another essential part of the Zingara (previous yacht) experience. He instructed two new divers through their SCUBA certifications with ease. He helped us catch a Jack fish and Tarpon off the stern, and was always excited to help us fish and adventure on the water! He was a great captain of the tender boat and even helped a first-time tuber feel safe enough to try it out. He is also an expert crafter of cocktails and the beverages of your dreams—be sure to try the Painkillers! His fun-loving attitude keeps spirits high throughout the trip.

Best ever Mojitos 2019

Dear Lee, Tyler, Camille and Andres, Thank you for making our return to the beautiful BVI’s as special as before. It’s been 17 years since we last visited and post hurricane it is back in great shape. The bars, beaches, restaurants, quiet bays to anchor overnight etc are all wonderful, even The Baths were not crowded…..bliss! You all made us feel so looked after, nothing was too much trouble, so helpful, creative, fun and friendly… felt like having friends on the boat with us! Calm Camille was brilliant with my 12 year old and his first diving experience, All Action Andres kept my 14 year old adrenaline fueled up ( … and us with the best ever Mojitos!
