“MANGO did the best job finding us the perfect yacht - helping us plan our itinerary - what restaurants to visit – and even hand picked our Captain – FANTASTIC!”

What is The Best Way to Get to my Destination?

This is a very Common Question so here are the basics;

CARIBBEAN:

BVI – We find the best way is via STT (St Thomas, USVI). All major USA carriers fly there so competition is high and prices are usually the BEST. Once there you will ferry from St Thomas to BVI. The ferry dock is a short ride from the STT airport, about 10 minutes tops. The last ferries leave about 4:30-5pm depending on season and day of week. Best to check ferry schedules link also on our web site. So it is best to make sure your flight arrives around 2:30-3pm. We find US Air has some of the earliest flight arrivals for North America departures. As you are most likely arriving the day before your charter start – we suggest to relieve schedule stress of a possible late flight, you consider staying your first night in St Thomas and then ferry out early am (usually 8am) to West End (WE) Tortola or Road Town (RT) Tortola. Make sure your bags are labelled correctly for either WE or RT. The ferry is usually around 45 minutes and $50. The port of arrival will vary based on your charter base location – just ask us.

Beef Island Airport (EIS) is served mostly only by Delta and AA from San Juan via Seaborne and Cape Air.  The St Thomas (STT) route is usually much  less expensive.

Grenadines – From North America there are several direct flights to Grenada. Depending on the day of week… Also, if your base is Canouan, St Vincent, Union or Grenada, we suggest trying Barbados as your air link base and then island hoping on SVG Air to one of these base locations.

St Martin and Antigua – These both have direct flights from most cities in North America and also from Europe via Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt.

MEDITERRANEAN:

Croatia – Most all yacht bases are near Split Airport (SPU) as your destination. From North America we suggest Air Canada, Lufthansa, United or any other Star Alliance Partner. We find Lufthansa has most accurate web site and good prices. The Split Airport (SPU) is also serviced by Croatia Airlines (also a Star Alliance junior partner) and Croatia Air flies to most all major Euro hubs, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, London with Munch and Frankfurt usually being the easiest and best connections!

Some discount Euro airlines also fly into Split; Easy Jet, Air Berlin and German Wings.
Ryan Air flies to Zadar, North of Split in Season.

There is also ferry service to Split from/to Italy, (Ancona).

We offer custom transportation services by road from/to Dubrovnik – just ask.
