Yacht Season | Best Destinations For Yachting in September

September sees temperate weather in both the northern and southern hemispheres. In the north, the temperatures begin to lower as summer comes to an end, and things begin to warm up in the south. Arguably the place that offers the most this month is the Whitsundays on the Queensland coast in Australia. Average temperatures are in the mid 20s (celsius) during this time of the year, which is close to perfect!

In the northern hemisphere, both the East and West Mediterranean are in great shape in September, as is the New England region of the US, so there is no shortage of choice available!



The average September temperature in the Whitsundays is 25.4 degrees (celcius), which means it’s perfect weather for a luxury yacht charter. Some of the most popular destinations in the Whitsundays include Hamilton Island, Neck Island, Whitehaven Beach, Hook Island, Bait Reef Lagoon, Butterfly Bay, Hayman Island and Stonehaven – each perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving, watersports, lazy beach days and reconnecting with nature. 

Of course, no trip to the Witsundays would be complete without exploring the Great Barrier Reef, and early spring is considered one of the best times to experience it. The more cosmopolitan traveller will also be right at home experiencing the night life and cuisine of Hamilton Island, and the warm sun, white sand and crystal clear water at Whitehaven Beach will be beckoning for a September visit.


New England

Comprising the states of Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, New England’s famous Atlantic coastline is a paradise for luxury yacht charters wanting to take in the best that the region has to offer. Doing so in early autumn or fall will see average temperatures that are still in the 20s (celsius) during the day but can get down a fair bit lower at night, meaning the foliage of all of the region’s deciduous trees is beginning to become colourful which makes for a stunning view.

The New England coast has so much for you to explore, from the world’s historical whaling capital Nantucket, to the myriad of marine history that’s waiting for you to experience in Boston, a luxury yacht charter in this part of the world is made extra-special in September.


East Mediterranean

Just outside of the region’s peak season, September will see fewer tourists in this part of Europe, but you’ll still be experiencing temperatures in the mid to high 30s (celsius), which is just about as close to ideal as you can get.

The East Mediterranean holds its stature in being home to some of the most popular spots in Europe. The region has thousands of islands and charming coastal cities, making it a haven for yacht charters. Dotted with century-old bazaars and historic fishing ports, you’ll be spoiled for choice by the diversity of the places you will come across.

Get lost among the cobblestone streets of Dubrovnik Old Town or discover the untouched beauty of Albania’s Sarandë or the sun-soaked sands and pebble beaches of the Greeks Isles – the East Mediterranean is yours to explore in September.


West Mediterranean

In the West Mediterranean you’ll be spoiled with postcard-perfect islands dotting the sea and superyachts adorning almost every port. Unspoiled archipelagos can be found among some of the world’s most frequented beaches.

You’ll enjoy privileged access to some of the planet’s most prestigious destinations. From the azure island of Formentera who’s unforgettable magic is often overlooked for its more popular sister island, Ibizato Corsica’s sparkling Bonifacio, literally translating to “pretty face”; the options are endless. And of course, from the glitz of Cannes to the high-rollers of Monaco, a yacht charter around the French Riviera is one out of a film.
