May 27, 2016

USA East Coast Yacht Charter

 

The East Coast of the United States, also known as the Eastern Seaboard, refers to the easternmost coastal states in the United States, which touch the Atlantic Ocean and stretch up to Canada.

It  includes the U.S. states of (from north to south): Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.

Although it does not border the Atlantic coast, Vermont is frequently included. Chartering on the east coast of the USA is the perfect way to spend a summer. Click here to view the yachts.

 

A yacht charter in New York is perfect for any nautical celebration, loop around the entire Manhattan Island, with spectacular views of the entire city. Then head to the Statue of Liberty to see Lady Liberty in all her glory. As the yachting capital of the northeast, Newport, Rhode Island makes a great starting point.

In Massachusetts cruise the islands of Marthas Vineyard and Nantucket.  The crescent-shaped island of Nantucket was once the home of whaling ships but in the present day, whales play safely in the waters off the island. Marthas Vineyard, larger and closer to the mainland, is famous for its streets of brightly painted Victorian gingerbread cottages in the town of Oak Bluffs.

Cape Cod Canal is great spot for whale watching, before sailing onto Plymouth, and to the city of Boston. The next quaint town is Kennebunkport, then onto Boothbay Harbor. From Boothbay Harbor the next stop is beautiful Camden, Maine, and you cannot leave without seeing Mount Desert and Acadia National Park.

The coastline of Florida offers a diverse range of activities for yacht charterers. Fort Lauderdale is a yachting paradise, earning its well deserved title as the Yachting Capital of the World, with numerous stylish marinas and resorts.

Miami and the South Beach offer a much faster pace of style. Sprawling southward, the Florida Keys are a casual, comfortable step away from the pace of the city. Leaving from Key Biscayne in Miami, cruise toward Key Largo, the gateway to the Florida Keys.

The shoreline of New Jersey stretches 127 miles and is made up of a series of barrier islands. Delaware is a four-season destination. The Assateague Island of Maryland is well known for its beautiful beaches, wild ponies and abundant bird life. South Carolina, a yacht charter paradise will help you create memories that will last a lifetime. Whether for adventure or relaxation North Carolina is your destination.

Another famous destination on the USA East Coast for yacht charterers is the Chesapeake Bay. port_usa_chesapeakebay

The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the United States. It lies off the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by Maryland and Virginia. More than 150 rivers and streams drain into the Bay, and it comprises 64,000 square miles (170,000 km2) of bays, marshes and rivers.

The Chesapeake Bay is approximately 200 miles (300 km) long, starting from the Susquehanna River in the north to the Atlantic Ocean in the south. At its narrowest point between Kent Countys Plum Point (near Newtown) and the Harford County shore near Romney Creek, the Bay is 2.8 miles (4.5 km) wide; at its widest point, just south of the mouth of the Potomac River, it is 30 miles (50 km) wide.

The Chesapeake Bay is home to a number of fauna that either migrate to the Bay at some point during the year or live there year round. There are over 300 species of fish and numerous shellfish and crab species. Some of these include the Atlantic menhaden, Striped bass, American eel, Eastern oyster, and the Blue crab. Bird predators include the American Osprey, Great Blue Heron, the Bald Eagle and the Peregrine Falcon.

Several flora also make the Chesapeake Bay their home both on land and underwater. Common submerged aquatic vegetation includes eelgrass and widgeon grass. Other vegetation that make their home in other parts of the Bay are: wild rice, various trees like the red maple and bald cypress and spartina grass and phragmites.

The bay is extended in two places. The Chesapeake Bay Bridge, which crosses the bay in Maryland from Sandy Point (near Annapolis) to Kent Island and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel in Virginia, which connects Virginia Beach to Cape Charles.

Chesapeake has so much to offer to visitors such as attractions, golf, history, fishing, parks, nightlife, dining, music, culture, sports, and nature of all kinds. It is located just 20 minutes from the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, 15 minutes from downtown Norfolk, 45 minutes from the history of Colonial Williamsburg, or the spray and play of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

The Chesapeake Bay is a main feature for tourists who visit Maryland and Virginia each year.
