Meet your crew, Sam and Neil 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 private cabin we will head out to anchor for your first delicious dinner on board Nemo with the stunning Five Islands as our backdrop.
After the morning guest briefing, we will set sail to the historic English Harbour, home to Nelson’s Dockyard. This will give you an opportunity for some time on the helm and practice tacking and gybing. Once we arrive, there is time to head ashore and visit the fully restored 18th-century working dockyard. Nelson kept his fleet here and there is a museum dedicated to his memory that has some fascinating exhibits. We will also have dinner ashore giving you a chance to taste the local cuisine.
Today is our first all-day open water sail to Deshaies in Guadeloupe. Deshaies is the set for British TV Series ‘Death in Paradise’. Once we get there, we can dinghy ashore in Dorey to look around, have a sundowner and then a delicious dinner is back on board Nemo.
Another 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 for lunch, and a chance to snorkel at the famous Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve. We will arrive in time for sundowners and dinner ashore this extremely picturesque town.
This morning we will have time to explore The Saintes. Choose one of the amazing beaches such as Pompierre, or perhaps Fort Napoleon for a little bit of history. After lunch, we will make our way to Dominica and Prince Rupert Bay. By now you will be comfortable helming Nemo and will be able to enjoy the stunningly green and lush island that is Dominica as we sail down her coast. We will have dinner on board once we are anchored.
Having done two inter-island sails already, we will take the time to relax today. Read a book in the hammock, soak up some sunshine or have a go on the kayak or paddle-board, it is entirely up to you. Then after lunch we highly recommend you take an afternoon tour up the mystical Indian River, it is a real treat. After the tour, we will head back to Nemo for dinner on board.
After breakfast, we will set sail for Mero. Here we will have lunch and for anyone who likes snorkelling, we suggest a trip to the Champagne Reef for some snorkelling in the bubbles. After lunch, we will sail to Roseau. We will have time for a quick wander around the town before heading back to Nemo and a yummy BBQ dinner on board.
From Roseau, we will have our final 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 ashore.
A relaxing last morning swimming and snorkelling and then we will sail into Fort du France for departures to the airport. The airport is approximately 15 minutes in a taxi.
