The Caribbean - 21 Day Yacht Charter Itinerary
Read the full Caribbean Charter Guide.
A 21-day private yacht charter itinerary visiting Martinique, Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua, Barbuda, St Kitts, Anguilla and St Martin.
Board in Le Marin, Martinique and cruise to Anses d’Arlets, a typically pretty fishing village south of Grand Anse which makes the most of its gorgeous beach front. Places of interest are the 18th century Roman Catholic Church in its centre as well has a handful of laid back beach shacks selling snacks at the northern end of the village. There is some excellent snorkeling around an offshore rock that juts out of the sea.
Cruise to Martinique Central East Coast where you’ll find a mini-version of the Grenadines with one anchorage reminiscent of the spectacular Tobago Cays. This coastline is protected from the Sea by a reef so offers some nice anchorages.
Enjoy some shore based activities in Martinique such as horseback riding. The Captain can move the yacht to a new anchorage whilst you’re ashore. Spend the night in the North at St. Pierre.
Iles de Saint – Located a short distance to the south of Guadeloupe are the small group of islands known as the Les Saintes - some are inhabited some are not. Terre-De-Haut is the largest of the 8 islands that make up the Les Saintes. The island was too hilly and dry for sugar cane so slavery never took hold here. Consequently the descendants can trace their ancestry to the early seafaring Norman and Brenton colonists. Terre-de-Haut is quaint and unhurried, very French in nature and almost Mediterranean in appearance. It has a beautiful landscape of volcanic hills and deep bays with plenty of protected beaches for good swimming.
Iles de Saint – Terre de haut – Enjoy some snorkelling before heading back to Dominica in time to collect Amanda from her flight.
Dominica - Nature Isle - Whale watching, Diving, Hot River Bathing.
Remain in Dominica to meet the Bowlers from their flight. We recommend a boat ride on the Indian River and a tour of the island to explore the local culture and see the stunning rainforest and waterfalls this island is famous for. There will be a handful of Rowers standing by just south of town ready and willing to be your guide for the trip. The boats wind up a shady river through tall swamp blood trees, whose buttress trucks rise out of the shallows. This can be a fascinating outing, taking you into an otherwise inaccessible habitat and offering a close up view of the creatures that live at the water’s edge. Try to pick a guide/boater who works with the Park Service as you will get a lot more out of the trip. The cost will be about $35EC per person and it will take about 1.5 hours. (Usually with a stop for a drink at a jungle hut bar)
Guadeloupe – Grand Terre. Long stretches of beautiful sand, beach bars, plenty of activity
Guadeloupe – Spend the day at Pigeon Island Cousteau Marine Park which offers excellent snorkelling. Continue onto Deshaies in the north of the islands for the evening. Deshaies is known as the gourmet capital of Basse–Terre. It is a beautiful harbour side village surrounded by green hills and dotted with waterside restaurants. Deshaies is a popular “Yachty” haven.
Montserrat – Explore a live volcano
One day free to spend where ever you are enjoying – Dominica, Guadeloupe, Iles de Saint or arrive one day early to Antigua. There is plenty to do around Antigua which you may not have done when you were there ashore. Uninhabited Green Island is great for a day and there are many nice anchorages.
Cruise to Antigua and stop to enjoy a snorkel at Cades Reef which offers large amounts of soft corals and colourful marine life. Continue to St John for the evening. St John’s offers shopping, hotels, restaurants and casinos.
Head to Barbuda to explore the lagoon and the Frigate bird colony
Return to Antigua and enjoy lunch at the Italian restaurant perched on a cliff (name TBC). Take a berth for the evening in English or Falmouth Harbour. The Bowlers depart Antigua.
Head to St Kitts early and anchor off. There are some nice restaurants ashore that you may wish to enjoy.
Take a tour of St Kitts exploring Brimstone Hill fort and Rawlins Plantation.
Head to St Kitts – although you’ve been there it may be different to see the island from another perspective. I’d suggested at least one day and night here.
Cruise to Anguilla and experience the unspoiled Caribbean at its best. This pristine island boasts charming villages, serene harbours and long stretches of white powdery beaches. A short cruise from Road Town brings you to the Prickly Pear Cays and Seal Island Reefs. This is a wonderful snorkeling spot with crystal clear water and vibrantly colored living reefs.
Anguilla – Enjoy the luxurious spa facilities ashore and 5 star resort dining at Malliouhana Spa on Meads Bay or CuisineArt Resort and Spa in Rendezvous Bay.
One spare day to enjoy where you like – St Kitts, St Barts or Anguilla.
St Martin - Anchor in the pretty bay of Grand Case for the evening. This is a calm bay, perfect for relaxing, sunbathing and enjoying some water toys. Its waterfront is lined with brightly coloured houses in true Caribbean spirit.
Enjoy an afternoon stroll down the vibrant narrow main street lined with great little boutiques and galleries. In Grand Case you can enjoy some of St Martin’s best gourmet restaurants such as Le Tastevin which offers traditional French cuisine and a wonderful Degustation menu.
St Martin – Perhaps take a taxi to the hillside retreat, Lottery Farm for an adventure of the Mango Tree tops. Enjoy some lunch at the excellent organic Tapas at the Hidden Forest Cafe. Tonight berth in Marigot Bay and perhaps enjoy an evening out at Mario's Bistro.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before preparing to disembark before midday.
