Your possible stops during this cruise

Your skipper Philippe has created an itinerary which may be changed according to the weather or your wishes.

First day: Your skipper will welcome you in the port of Marin. He will brief you on the weather conditions, safety, the precise itinerary of the mini cruise, and on how life on board works. You will then set sail in the direction of St Lucia! You'll cross the channel which separates Martinique and St Lucia, where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet.
This first voyage, lasting around 3 hours, will be your chance to discover the pleasures of sailing and to observe the dolphins and whales which will accompany your trip. Once you've arrived on the island, you'll drop the anchor in Rodney Bay. After lunch, you'll be able to lounge in the shade of coconut palms, go snorkelling and swim with thousands of multicoloured fish, or even visit the Pigeon Island National Park. Go and explore the ruins of Fort Rodney. At the top of the fort, you'll discover a spectacular view over Martinique. At the end of the afternoon, go to drink a cocktail and immerse yourself in the Caribbean culture. In the evening, your time will be punctuated by the rhythm of raggamuffin music and you'll discover the friendly atmosphere in the village of Gros Ilet.

Second day: After a first night on board in the Rodney Bay Marina, Philippe suggests taking a taxi to Castries, the capital of St Lucia. Let yourself be charmed by the lively atmosphere of the local market, enjoy delicious exotic fruits, and discover the fragrances of colourful spices... After lunch, you'll return to the port to sail along the island's Caribbean coast to the famous Marigot Bay, one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. This protected, picturesque place will seduce you. There you will have an unforgettable evening before spending the night in the port.

Third day: In the morning, you'll be able to relax and make the most of the beach. Savour the exquisite dips in crystal clear waters... After lunch, Philippe will again set the yacht sailing back towards Martinique. At the end of the day, you'll disembark thinking only about when you can next come back!

If you want to book the cruise with an extra day, this is also possible!
With Philippe, you'll then sail towards the south of St Lucia to discover Soufrière, a traditional village from which you can take a guided tour to explore the volcano, waterfalls, and the botanical garden. You'll also discover the symbol of St Lucia: the Pitons. These two giant mountains plunge into the sea and offer you an extraordinary panoramic view...
A little tip from Skippair: at the foot of the mountains is the ideal site for snorkelling!
