Caribbean Windward and Leeward Islands 2023-24
December 2023 - April 2024

About the Windward and Leeward Islands

We have an absolutely wonderful itinerary available to you in the warm and sunny Caribbean. Beats the cold and gloomy European winter hands down. The Grenadines including Tobago Cays is our favorite cruising ground, but we do love St Lucia, Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe as well. There are some rough edges to the Caribbean, yes, but when you know the people, you have nothing at all to worry about.
We keep Fort-de-France, Martinique as our base camp because it is the most convenient place to fly to from Europe. From there we can explore both the Windward and the Leeward islands. The way it works is that we have two options: we either go south exploring Martinique, St Lucia and St Vincent (including The Grenadines), or we go north exploring Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe (including Iles des Saintes and Maria Galante). Your choice! We can do the provisioning for you in advance, if you want to, to save time for the actual cruising. Below are some examples that can easily be tweaked according to your preferences.
