Yacht Charter Cape Verde

Tired of the Old Continent? Time to spread your horizons, and set sails towards the exotic Cape Verde islands! 460 miles off the West African coast in the Atlantic Ocean a true paradise is waiting for you.

These islands are divided into two groups - Northern group (windward islands) and Southern group (leeward islands). All islands are very diverse and perfect for island hopping. You can also see the traces of Portuguese colonial past in the islands’ culture, as well as their cuisine.


Cape’s first marina, Marina Mindelo, located on the island of St. Vincet, is the cultural capital of the islands. You can moor your catamaran there, explore the popular fish market, and enjoy Mindelo’s buzzing nightlife, with its numerous bars and music clubs. Hauntingly beautiful music and traditional singing in Creole (morna music) can be heard all across the island.
