Maho Bay is a staple in our yacht charter expeditions around the US Virgin Islands, captivating everyone with its serene beauty and vibrant underwater life. It's a locale we can't miss, often shaping the itinerary of our adventures through these enchanting waters.

Why Maho Bay?

What sets Maho Bay apart in a region filled with stunning beaches and cays? The answer lies beneath the waves, where sea turtles and spotted eagle rays glide gracefully among the seagrass beds.

The allure of Maho Bay extends to its accessibility and the close-knit community of nature lovers it attracts. Whether you're here to swim with the turtles or simply to soak up the sun, Maho Bay ensures an unforgettable experience with every visit.
