Luxury St Lucia Catamaran Cruise

Sailing the verdant Windward Islands

St Lucia has one of the most impressive landscapes in the Caribbean. From smoking volcanoes to protected bays, the island is blanketed in lush emerald rainforest, alive with hummingbirds and tree frogs. This tropical playground is a true gem, surrounded by crystal waters, ideal for spotting sea life and perfect for a luxury, sailing escape. Opt for a longer duration and sail among the scattered island of St Vincent and the Grenadines fora real taste of Caribbean culture. Sail and Stay Once you have decided on the sailing part of your holiday, it's time to think about when and where you would like to spend your stay on dry land. The natural choice would be to choose a hotel in St Lucia for a quick and seamless connection, however the world is your oyster and multi centre holidays have never been so sought after so why not take advantage? Antigua's pristine beaches, Barbados' rum shops and Grenada, the island of spice, are all a short flight away, as is the Big Apple. Start with a few days shopping in downtown New York before sailing in a luxury catamaran and then hit the white sands of Antigua to unwind.
