Caribbean Adventure Sailing from St Martin to St Barth’s, St Kitts, Nevis, Monserrat & Guadeloupe

Fly into St Maarten and meet up with your shipmates in Marigot, on the French side of the island. Then stow your gear for a romp through some of the most tranquil and least visited of the Caribbean Islands; the spectacular volcanic landscapes on Monserrat and St Kitts make for memorable coastal sailing we follow the trade ship trail South to Guadeloupe. Even if you’ve never sailed before, you won’t fail to be enchanted by the beautiful blue waters of the Leeward Islands and your Skipper will soon having you pulling the ropes like a pro!

Have a Sailing Adventure

Our 10 day tour of the islands of St Maarten, Monserrat, Nevis & St Kitts includes glorious blue water sailing, great home-cooked food, fantastic snorkelling and evenings under the stars. Beginners and improvers are assured of a relaxed and unhurried learning experience and single travellers will make firm friends amongst their fellow boat buddies.

Our itinerary takes in all the island highlights from the desecrated shores of Monserrat and the glitz and glamour of St Barth’s to the tropical rainforests of Guadeloups, and gives you plenty of sailing, whilst allowing you time for relaxing and exploring.

Sunshine & Warm Seas

Warm sunny weather is practically guaranteed; there are often showers in this part of the world but they never last long, and hey, it’s warm rain! Temperatures in their high 20′s are the norm, and there’s always a cooling breeze on board. The sea is a wonderful shade of blue, and I can honestly say that it is uniquely Caribbean; nowhere more so than in the Leewards….prepare to be amazed.
