Horizon Charters: Yachting for the Environment

Posted: Feb. 6th, 2009  |  By Victor and Mary
Luxury Yachting: What says luxury more than a vacation aboard a private yacht in the Caribbean? Perhaps it's having the elite experience while also preserving the environment. Horizon Yacht Charters, the fastest growing, top rated Caribbean yacht charter company, offers guests a fabulous sailing adventure along with a side of good will.

HYC affords guests the opportunity to be involved in wildlife conservation efforts specific to each Island they sail to and from. Based out of the British Virgin Islands, this exclusive company has involved themselves in conservation projects ranging from sponsoring a baby turtle in the Grenadines, to removing illegal fishing nets that endanger marine life in St. Martin. HYC has also worked to preserve turtle nesting sites in Antigua and sponsored a mangrove seedling in order to promote restoration in the BVI. By giving a small donation of US$20, guests will help to ensure that the environment of these beloved vacation destinations are preserved for future generations to enjoy; every contribution goes directly towards research and community outreach and materials. "It is so encouraging and makes our endeavors worthwhile when guests, who have chartered with Horizon Yacht Charters, want to give something back by means of a donation to help support conservation initiatives..." explains Andrew Thompson, Director of Horizon Yacht Charters. "The response has been fantastic because many of our guests come back year after year, so they see the progress firsthand and understand how vital it is to help."

Along with the attention they give to the natural surroundings in each Island locale, HYC prides themselves on the individual attention they provide to guests aboard any one of their bareboat, skippered or crewed yachts. Unlike larger yacht chartering services, HYC guides guests through an extensive chart briefing, which allows them direct involvement in customizing their itinerary. Prior to setting sail a unique educational experience is given through an individual yacht operations tutorial and an on board boat phone connecting directly to HYC staff members provides 24-hour per-day coverage. For a truly tailor-made vacation, HYC offers assistance with flight and hotel arrangements, water sport rentals and special occasion requests.

Whether guests are looking to incorporate important environmental initiatives into their vacation or just want to relax amongst the turquoise waters, white sands and exotic wildlife of the Caribbean Islands, Horizon Yacht Charters provides both and so much more. For more information on renting or purchasing a yacht through HYC, guests are encouraged to visit www.horizonyachtcharters.com
