Day 1: We meet on Martinique, in the marina of Le Marin. The nearest international airport is Fort-de-France. AirFrance flies here from Russia with a transfer in Paris. Yacht check-in, safety briefing, dinner, getting to know each other.
Day 2: Sailing to the Martinique capital of Fort de France. We’ll take a walk around the city: go to the botanical Balata garden with thousands of various plants, a lake with lotuses and many hummingbirds. Fort de France is the largest French city in the West Indies. It lies between the hills and the sea. In the center of the city there is La Savane Park with fountains and palm alleys. It is also worth taking a look at the Schoelcher Library building, the Palais de Justice, and the St. Louis Cathedral.
Day 3: We will sail from Martinique to the island of Saint Lucia, which is only 45 km long. You’ll enjoy the beauty of the landscapes and wonderful beaches, many of which are covered with black volcanic sand. The slopes of the mountains in St. Lucia are covered with greenery, and from their top the views are incredible.
Day 4: There will be a short walk around the picturesque village of Soufriere on the west coast of the island. We’ll drop by the local botanical garden. And most importantly - we will get ready for the New Year's beach party with dancing, secret Santa and many surprises.
Day 5: Here is the New Year - the first of January in the warm waters of the Caribbean. Some people can only dream about it, and for us it is a reality!
Day 6: We’ll sail to the island of St. Vincent. It was discovered in 1498 by Christopher Columbus. There are beautiful beaches, botanical gardens, and rainforests. By the way, here in Ullilabu Bay the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie was shot. The island's capital - Kingstown is great for walking around. The main natural attraction of the island is the 1234 meters high La Soufriere volcano.
Day 7: St. Vincent - Port Elizabeth, Bequia. Bequia is another island in the state of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, which is only 14 km away. If you plan to leave us, or vice versa, to join for the second week, then the international airport on this island in situated in the city of Saint Vincent.
Day 8: After completing customs formalities, we leave for the island of Mustique, "the island for the chosen." The history of the island is very interesting. In the late 50s of the 20th century, the island was bought by Baron Colin Tennant. He took care of the island and promised the government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, which formally owns the island, that no one would harm the nature of the island. That is why the beauty of nature and the ecology of the area is unique.
Day 9: In the morning we will walk around the Mustique and go to the island of Canouan, which is often called the heart of the Grenadines. This is a quiet island with beautiful nature: sandy beaches and secluded bays. The Royal Mountain rises above the island.
Day 10: Sailing from Canouan Island to Union Island, the capital of the Grenadines. The island is covered with mountain ranges. Its length is only 5 km and its width is 2.5 km. In addition to swimming in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean, the greatest experience you can have is just hiking around the island.
Day 11: We’ll start a return trip and stop at Port Elizabeth and take a walk around the island of Bequia.
Day 12: The plan is to explore the east coast of St. Vincent.
Day 13: We’ll go to Saint Lucia, to the town of Vieux Fort, which is located in the southern part of the island. It is the second largest city in this state. The main attractions of the city are the old quarters, the Maria Island, where the rarest reptiles live, the lighthouse and numerous beaches.
Day 14: Long voyage to Martinique, to our home marina. Here we will have a farewell dinner.
Day 15: We’ll leave the boats and go home. We are sure that you will have exciting memories about this adventure and will join us on other cruises!
