We’ve done the Bahamas
, Leeward Islands
and the Windward Islands
Our favorite (did it four times) was the Leewards. You can just sail around Antigua
which is beautiful with many anchorages
and beeches. Pick the boat
up in historic English
Sail to Nevis
which is open ocean for about 45 miles. Your kids
and you will think they’ve come upon Jurassic Park, volcano and all (inactive). It is considered to be representative of the old Caribbean
. Climb up the volcano if you like and tour many retired sugar plantations. Great snorkeling.
Eight miles to St. Kitts. Go to the Monkey Bar and hang out with lots of monkeys.
We then typically sail up to St. Barts which is all French. Great restaurants and great places to sail about and snorkel. We usually sail to I’ll Fourche (spelling may not be correct), a deserted island.
Then onto St Martin
where we drop the boat
off at Oyster
Pond. We always do a one way charter
. Fly home.
I live in Long Island
, NY and would be happy to expand on our adventures. Email
