NAVIGARE COVID FLEX • Book with flexibility



Friday, 27 November 2020 / Published in News

Navigare is pleased to announce new charter departures from St Thomas in the USVI where the only travel requirement is a negative COVID test taken within 5 days of arrival for all guests 6 and up. 

The bold move was swiftly negotiated between Navigare and the long-established operator CYOA, based in Frenchtown, St Thomas, in response to the constraining travel protocols to the British Virgin Islands where Navigare operates out of Nanny Cay. Initial availability will be limited to a fleet of 6 well-equipped catamarans and charter departures from December 15, 2020.

"We're very grateful for the opportunity to partner with a solid operator out of the USVI to give our charter guests more opportunities to sail amidst the limitations of the pandemic. With only minor accommodations, our guests will sail on Navigare yachts under the same conditions and pricing as our BVI charters, but with support from the CYOA crew”, commented Jesper Rönngard, Founder and CEO of Navigare Yachting. He added, “While the economic circumstances have forced the travel industry at large to retract, we saw a chance to grow our presence in the Caribbean.”

Meanwhile Navigare Yachting is ready to welcome its first guests in Marsh Harbour, The Bahamas, tomorrow. Charters out of the Navigare base in Nanny Cay, in the British Virgin Islands, will resume on December 1st when the country reopens its borders to tourists, but under stricter protocols in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Navigare hosted a live webinar on Monday, November 30th at 5PM EST to help guests and partners understand their options to sail in the Caribbean with Navigare and prepare for the associated travel protocols and requirements. To view the recording:
