Where to Explore
There are over 700 islands to explore in the Caribbean, as well as the treasures of the sea for divers, snorkelers or wildlife enthusiasts. With more than a lifetime's worth of wonderful sailing, it's easy to understand why so many of our guests come back year after year.
Geographically, the Caribbean can be divided into the Greater Antilles in the west and the Lesser Antilles in the east. the Caribbean's biggest islands are all in the Great Antilles and include Cuba, The Dominican Republic, and Jamaica, as well as the Bahamas and Cayman Islands.
The Lesser Antilles are all smaller islands that form a cirque, facing out to the Atlantic Ocean. These are the more 'exotic' destinations; those hidden gems that conjure up images of palm trees and perfect white sand beaches. They include well-known luxury holiday spots such as St Lucia, Martinique and Barbados. Our yacht is based in Antigua, a world-famous sailing mecca, which is at the northern end of the archipelago.
Our Top Picks
From our Antigua home port, we have some of the Caribbean's best snorkelling spots and hidden caves within easy reach. From Falmouth Harbour, where you'll join the crew, we'll explore hidden gems including Freyer's Bay and Five Islands, where we'll introduce you to our favourite restaurants. Kitesurfer lovers can get their adrenalin fix at Green Island, while snorkelers and divers will have the opportunity to see some of the regions most diverse wildlife at Green Bird. Onshore, we have the option to indulge in those famous rum cocktails and fresh seafood, with the exclusive plunge pools overlooking white sand bays.
The British Virgin Islands (BVI)
Join the yacht at Trellis Bay, where we'll set the tone of your holiday with champagne and canapes welcome. From here, Scrub Island resort and the beach at Guana Island are favourites to get into the sailing spirit. BVI is the place to celebrate the New Year, with the world-famous Foxy's Bar and the fireworks display at Peter Island. Sailors looking for a more low-key experience will find secluded beaches and beautiful snorkelling spots at Normal Island. Cooper is also a top dive spot, while Virgin Gorda is home to a labyrinth of famous caves. Sailing past Richard Branson's Necker Island is a highlight for many, en route to North Sound, which was devastated by Hurricane Irma.
