Discover first-hand the historic towns and picturesque harbors favored by yachtsmen and the sublime charm of island life.
Sail round-trip from Fort-de-France, Martinique, into secluded harbors and popular sailors’ haunts to explore the rich culture and beautiful natural features of the Caribbean’s remote Windward Islands. Visit Martinique’s lush, artist-designed Balata Garden integrating 3,000 varieties of tropical plants and flowers. Be on deck as you approach St. Lucia for a picturesque glimpse of the Gros and Petit Pitons, twin mountain peaks and a UNESCO World Heritage site; experience Dominica’s geothermal activity and see its famous twin Trafalgar Falls. You can snorkel amid the awe-inspiring reefs and marine life in the lagoons of Tobago Cays Marine Park; visit Grenada, where the scent of spices wafts through the air of this quintessential Spice Island and explore the old-world charm of St. Vincent and its historic capital, Kingstown.
