Meet your crew, Sam, and Neil in Soufriere and get settled on board Nemo. Our meeting point will have the St Lucian Pitons as an incredible backdrop. The Hewanorra International airport is 45 minutes away by taxi. Once you are settled on board Nemo and we have conducted our guest briefing we will sail to Marigot Bay. This will be our night anchorage and we will have dinner ashore in one of the many fabulous restaurants there.
After a relaxing morning, where you will get the chance to swim off the back of the boat in one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Caribbean, we will sail to Rodney Bay. Here you can go and visit Pigeon Island Nature Reserve and enjoy a cocktail ashore. We will serve dinner on board.
Our first interisland sail today as we head to the photogenic small town of Les Anses D’Artlet on Martinique. On the way, you will get to see the amazing HMS Diamond Rock and once at anchor, we can head to Anse Chaudiere for some snorkelling. We will have our evening meal on board Nemo.
An earlyish start as we head up to St. Pierre, the former economic capital which was destroyed by the Montagne Pelée eruption in 1902. Once there we can visit one of the many rum factories or go snorkelling, kayaking or paddle boarding. We will anchor here for the night and have dinner on board Nemo.
Our second interisland sail today as we depart Martinique for Dominica – the nature island. We will sail to Roseau and then head ashore to pick up a tour to snorkel the bubbling geothermal Champagne Reef. Dinner on board.
More adventures to be had in Dominica today as we sail up to Prince Rupert Bay in Portsmouth, giving us a chance to take in the stunningly green and lush island. After a tasty lunch, we can then take the brilliant Indian River cruise or you can relax on board. We will have our evening meal on Nemo.
Another inter-island sail to the beautiful archipelago of Îles de Saintes in Guadeloupe today. We will anchor in Terre-de-Haut. Here you can snorkel, kayak or paddleboard. Or choose one of the amazing beaches such as Pompierre, or perhaps visit Fort Napoleon for a little bit of history. Dinner ashore at this wonderful seaside town.
Today will be a fun day of coastal sailing. We will stop at Pigeon Island for lunch, and the famous and stunning Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve to snorkel. Then onto Deshaies, the set for British TV Series ‘Death in Paradise’. Once we get there, head ashore to look around, have a sundowner and then dinner is back on Nemo under the stars.
Our final all day interisland sail will be to the historic English Harbour in Antigua, 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. We will head ashore for a yummy dinner.
Our final sail will take in the wonderful Antigua coastline. We will pass Cades Reef as we head up to Jolly Harbour our departure point.
