The itinerary we present is a suggestion. Depending on the weather conditions and your wishes, it can be modified by the skipper.
Meet at 5pm, at the marina in Le Marin to board your catamaran and get to know your professional skipper and your cook who will introduce you to the Caribbean cuisine through her cooking. For your first evening on board, the crew will lead you to anchor in the bay of Ste-Anne.
DAY 2: Baie de Ste-Anne - St-Pierre
This morning, you raise anchor and sail along the south coast to Anses d'Arlet. This is the ideal spot for snorkelling thanks to its calm and clear water. After this refreshing break, you will head back to St-Pierre where you will anchor for the night. Enjoy the sailing and relax on the trampolines or admire the view from the flybridge.
DAY 3: St-Pierre - Dominica
Your skipper hoists the sails and sets course for the lush island of Dominica also known as Nature Island. On the west coast, you will discover its capital Roseau, with its colourful wooden houses and a warm and relaxed atmosphere. During your stopover, we recommend a visit to the UNESCO listed Morne Trois Pitons National Park. You will wander between mountains, forests, rivers and enjoy the waterfalls and bubbling baths to relax.
DAY 4: Dominica
After breakfast, sail to Portsmouth, located in the north of Dominica. This stop will allow you to take a canoe ride on the Indian River, bordered by the huge Bwa Mang trees. It was also the setting for some of the scenes in the famous "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. A little later, you can visit the Cabrits National Park. It is home to a dense rainforest, but also a preserved coral reef.
DAY 5: Les Saintes
Today, you set course for Guadeloupe, and more precisely for the archipelago of Les Saintes. It is composed of 2 islands Terre-de-Haut and Terre-de-Bas as well as 7 islets. It also has one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The skipper will suggest a stop for a swim or to relax on the lovely Pompierre beach or on the peaceful beach of Anse Rodrigue.
DAY 6: Les Saintes
Your morning will be devoted to exploring Les Saintes. Terre-de-Bas has managed to remain authentic and preserve its natural and cultural environment. There is no shortage of hiking trails to explore. As for Terre-de-Haut, it will seduce you with its colourful villages, the unmissable Fort Napoleon and its breathtaking view over the bay. We propose an afternoon of snorkeling to discover the beauty of the sea bed. You will then have well deserved a cocktail at the Coconut bar.
DAYS 7 & 8: Marie-Galante
Marie-Galante, this melancholic name may ring a bell? Yes, it is indeed the one Laurent Voulzy talks about in his song. It is also known as the "grande galette". You will have 2 days to explore this island with its ancestral traditions. You will have the choice between walking along the paths that run along the coast and that lead to the site of Gueule Grand Gouffre (an immense open-air chasm where the waves come rushing in), lounging on heavenly beaches (La Feuillère, Le Vieux Fort...) or visiting a rum distillery (Bielle or Père Labat for example)...
DAY 9 : Marie-Galante - Îlet du Gosier
The crew sets sail for the coastal town of Sainte-Anne located on the island of Grande-Terre. You will then sail along the coast to reach the islet of Gosier. This crossing will be punctuated by short stops to swim or paddle in small corners of paradise. You will appreciate your anchorage on the Gosier islet. Its turquoise blue water will be perfect for a last snorkeling session.
DAY 10: Pointe-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe)
Why not start this last day with a morning swim? Back on board, the skipper raises the anchor to sail to Pointe-à-Pitre. Your arrival in port is scheduled for around 2pm.
