Sailing conditions and climate in the Caribbean

Sailing in the Caribbean is comparatively demanding, yet this area is considered particularly popular on the water. Every island of the Antillean Arc invites you to sail and offers excellent conditions for a trip in the Caribbean. Every skipper or person on the catamaran should have enough experience in sailing for your cruise because, despite the constant and ideal trade wind for your trip, you should expect very long distances for sailing during your week on the catamaran or yacht. Plan enough time per stopover during your week of vacation, ideally one to several days. In addition, pay attention to the shallow water depths per cruise - these make navigating your sailing yacht even more difficult.

Nevertheless, vacation dreams come true in the Caribbean: white sandy beaches, turquoise crystal clear water and summer temperatures are guaranteed here! Year-round temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius prevail here. This tropical climate is perfect for your next cruise in winter! So enjoy relaxing summer hours on the beach or make a trip to one of the beautiful bays during your cruise or during your stay on an island - your skipper will show you the most beautiful places and drive you on board your yacht over the turquoise blue water of the Caribbean! This way, you can really enjoy your trip!

The best time to go sailing in the Grenadines:

Whatever your travel dates, the Grenadines archipelago enjoys a pleasant climate for catamaran cruises all year round.

The best time to go sailing in the Grenadines is typically between December and May, which is the dry season and when temperatures are most comfortable.

During this period, you can expect clear blue skies, calm waters, and a consistent easterly trade wind that makes for great sailing conditions. The average temperature during this period is around 27°C, with the water temperature hovering around 25°C.

If you're planning to go sailing during the rainy season (June to November), you should be prepared for more variable weather conditions and the possibility of tropical storms or hurricanes. However, this period can also offer some excellent sailing opportunities, with fewer crowds and lower prices for charters and accommodations.

Which Grenadines yacht cruise is right for you?

Are you planning a group trip? It's best to book a private cruise. You will share the price of such a cruise and the services of a crew with a skipper for the price of a cabin.

For two people, choose a cabin cruise. You can book private cabins aboard a catamaran alongside other guests and enjoy a trip to the Grenadines for the price of a single cabin.

From Le Marin in Martinique, cabin cruises include lunch and/or dinner on board the catamaran. The privatised cruises sometimes have lunch or dinner as an option.

For the comfort of our travellers, cabin cruises and private cruises include a crew with a skipper and hostess who ensure the navigation on board the catamaran.

Service at the base was excellent, informative and thorough. The boat maintenance was as expected for the type and age. The Marina at Blue Lagoon was excellent, the amenities clean and well looked after and a perfect destination for sailing the Grenadines, particularly, Union Island, Tobago Cays and Bequia. A great alternative to the larger and less personal Marinas we've visited before in the Caribbean.
