Yacht Experiences

Island-hopping adventure in the Windward Islands

Vibrant Caribbean beauty above and below the glittering turquoise sea, an island-hopping expedition in the Windward Islands offers incredible undersea experiences, thoughtful conservation opportunities, and rum-tasting.

When to go:
December – April


Your Windward Island odyssey begins in Dominica. Snorkel its famous Champagne Reef, watching the hawksbill turtles and parrot fish coasting through the cloud of geothermal bubbles that give it its name.

Afterward, follow the Waitukubuli Trail into the island’s untouched interior. Trek sinuous paths twisting through woodland, gorges, and up forested mountain slopes.

While anchored off Dominica, take the opportunity to be introduced to the superb deep-sea fishing available here. Join expert fishermen and cast a line for tuna, snapper, or bigger game such as white marlin.

Relax on your yacht as you make the two-and-a-half-hour voyage to Martinique. Arriving here, you’ll transfer to the island’s shores and climb aboard off-road vehicles. Enjoy an adventurous afternoon in the jungle surrounding Mount Pele.

Go canyoning amid the streams and waterfalls or opt for a paragliding experience to take in this beautiful destination from above.

Reward yourself at the end of a breathless day with a private rum-tasting at the Depaz Castle & Distillery. Rejoin your yacht in the serene aquamarine seas.


Arrive at the towering peaks of St. Lucia’s verdant Pitons. Tackle these volcanic mountains—nearly 3000ft above sea level—on a guide-led hike past rare flora and on to even rarer views.

Once you’ve conquered St. Lucia, move on to its equally engaging neighbor—St. Vincent. Hike up to the edge of LaSoufriere’s active crater, stopping to cool off beneath waterfalls as you reach its lofty heights and breathtaking panoramas.


Bequia is famous as one of the Caribbean’s most rewarding diving and snorkeling destinations. Take your yacht’s tender to discover healthy fringing reefs and, guided by expert divers, discover the array of marine life on thrilling drift dives.

Back on land, be part of Bequia’s famous shipwright tradition as, cobbling together local resources, you craft your own model boat before a race in the bay

Before you leave the island, see turtle eggs hatching. Join local conservationists in helping the newly hatched babies reach the safe embrace of the sea.

While traveling in this beautiful region, you have to visit Mustique. Gallop across this private island’s swathes of white sand before a joyful swim with your steed.

Arriving at Union Island next, embrace adrenaline as you learn to kiteboard with a world-famous Pelorus Kitesurf Instructor. Alternatively, travel to the onshore Animal Kindness Sanctuary and help nurture animals that have suffered mistreatment.

For those with a taste for the extreme, embark on a castaway experience. Challenge yourself and your team by foraging for sustenance, starting a fire without any tools, and creating your own raft for an escape attempt with an expert survival guide your only support.
