Destinations & Sample Yacht Charter Itineraries
Bonaire to Curaçao
7-Day Cruise by s/y Domicil
As the winds are always easterly, this is a great downwind sailing event, making it an easy passage even for those not used to being on the sea.
Day 1: Arrival
The Domicil crew will welcome you at the airport (Flamingo) on Bonaire and bring you to the yacht Domicil waiting for you at their Kralendijk mooring. Once aboard, freshen up and then enjoy cocktails and hors d'houvres on deck. A beautiful sunset is the prelude for a romantic dinner – alfresco!
Day 2: Bonaire
Bonaire is a wonderful Caribbean Island with a historic Dutch flavor! You can wander around in Kralendijk, enjoy the best dive spots in the world, or drive to the unique salt pans flanked by original slave houses. Bonaire is an amazing experience!
Day sail to "Small Curaçao"
This is a fabulous day of sailing from Bonaire to the island of Klein Curaçao, about 30 miles to the west. After breakfast we set sail in a broad reach (that's smooth sailing) to the uninhabited island called "Klein Curaçao". With a bit of luck we will meet dolphins on the way, and those who like to fish can try for a marlin or a tuna! We arrive late in the afternoon, just in time for cocktails and an always inspiring sunset. Dinner aboard.
Day 4: Island "Small Curaçao"
On Klein Curaçao you will find pristine beaches, crystal clear waters with coral, colorful fish and with a little luck, swimming with turtles! The island has many interesting stories, illustrated with a deserted lighthouse, shipwrecks and traces of old settlements. By evening you may have the island for yourself! We anchor overnight in the protected bay and enjoy the relaxed ambiance of this special secluded place.
Day sail to Curaçao & Baoase
After a relaxed breakfast we complete the easy sail to Curaçao to the famous private 5-start resort, Baoase. There, a private car (Mercedes with a driver/guide) is available for you to explore the intriguing features of Curaçao. Visit the beaches, natural parks, famous "Handelskade" with the floating bridge, floating market, the slave museum, or tax-free shopping in Punda. Curaçao offers some fabulous architecture on the UNESCO world heritage list. We will be happy create a day package to suit your needs. In the evening you are the guest of the very best chef on Curaçao at the 5-star Baoase private resort. Your dinner will be served on the private beach.
Day 6: Daysail south coast of Curaçao
Today we sail along the south coast of Curaçao all the way to the very west tip called West Point. We anchor in Playa Kalki in front of the famous Kura Hurlanda resort. After cocktails at sunset, the choice is yours: A romantic last dinner aboard or ashore at the beautiful Kura Hulanda resort.
Day 7: Farewell
Whatever your choice was last night, we are sure you have spent a memorable week aboard Domicil. Enjoy a relaxed breakfast, one last swim and check out at any time. The Domicil crew will take you to the airport for your return to Bonaire or onwards to your international destination.
Remember, there are many variations to this sample itinerary. Your charter will be customized to fulfill the dreams of your charter party. That's the beauty of a crewed charter yacht sailing vacation.
