Meet Sam, Neil and your fellow guests at 14:00 (2 PM) in Jolly Harbour Marina and get settled on board Nemo. Jolly Harbour is approximately 30 minutes taxi ride from the airport. Once you are settled into your cabin and we have held the guest briefing we will head straight out to anchor for dinner on board Nemo.
After a lovely breakfast, we will set sail to the historic English Harbour, home to Nelson’s Dockyard, which is a fully restored 18th-century working dockyard. In days gone by, Nelson would keep his fleet here and there is a museum dedicated to his memory that has some fascinating exhibits. After an afternoon exploring, we will head ashore for a delicious local dinner.
Today is an all-day open water sail to Deshaies in Guadeloupe, giving you plenty of time to practice your helming. Once we have anchored we will make our way into town in Dory the Dinghy so we can check out the Pelicans that love the fishing in the bay and enjoy the local atmosphere with a sundowner overlooking the little beach. We will head back to Nemo for a dinner under the stars!
An all-day sail to the beautiful archipelago of Îles de Saintes today, where we will anchor in Terre-de-Haut. This will be a fun day of coastal sailing. Time permitting we will stop at Pigeon Island and a chance to snorkel at the famous Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve. We will arrive in time for sundowners and dinner ashore.
This morning we will have time to explore ashore. Choose one of the amazing beaches such as Pompierre, or perhaps Fort Napoleon for a little bit of history. After lunch we have another inter-island sail Prince Rupert Bay in Dominica, giving us a chance to take in the stunningly green and lush island. Dinner will be on Nemo.
In the morning, read a book in the hammock, soak up some sunshine or have a go on the kayak or paddleboard, it is entirely up to you. Or we highly recommend you take a tour up the mystical Indian River, it is a real treat. After the tour, we will have an afternoon sail to Roseau. Dinner will be on Nemo.
From Roseau, we will have another inter-island sail to St. Pierre, the former economic capital of Martinique, which was destroyed by the Montagne Pelée eruption in 1902. This is a spectacular anchorage with Mt Pelée in the background. Ashore you will find a lovely town with a market and some ruins to explore. We will anchor here for the night and have dinner on board.
In the morning we have an opportunity to relax on board, head to one of the many Rum factories for a tour or go snorkelling, kayaking or paddle boarding. In the afternoon we will sail just south of Fort du France to the Les Anses D’Artlet, a stunning little village, where we will have dinner on board.
This morning we will have our last inter-island sail to Marigot in St Lucia. This will give you more time to practice the skills honed during the week’s charter. In Marigot you can swim off the back of the boat in one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Caribbean. We will dine ashore for our last evening.
Our final morning will be an easy sail to Soufriere, as we arrive you will get to see the famous Pitons. We will arrive in time for a noon (12 PM) departure to the Hewanorra airport which is 45 minutes away by taxi.
