The Caribbean boasts some of the greatest sailing grounds in the world. The wind, sunshine and numerous different islands and cultures make it one of our favourite destinations to explore under sail.
Making sure our sailing holidays in the Caribbean sit outside the usual hurricane season, our boats benefit from the warm North East trade wind belt that will carry you through the emerald islands of the West Indies.
With five of our fleet – Chronos, Rhea, Twister, Blue Clipper and Eye of the Wind all making the annual sailing across the Atlantic, you won’t be short of choice for sailing these balmy waters. Whilst the harbours provide flat seas and sheltered anchorages you can marvel at how these ships handle the trade winds in open water, with the sails filled and the sea spray flying.
Spot graceful sea turtles gliding effortlessly through the water and Bottlenose Dolphins swimming with the wake of the bow. Stingrays waltzing the harbour walls and iguanas scuttling along the shorelines. Many different species of Whale also frequent the Caribbean sea, with the warm water providing the perfect breeding grounds at this time of year for the humpback whale.
Birdlife in the Caribbean is an incredibly beautiful sight over 700 species of bird inhabiting the islands. 171 species alone are endemic to the region and found nowhere else in the world. From parrots to parakeets from hummingbirds to mockingbirds, keep your binoculars at the ready to spot these colourful delights. Pink Flamingoes are also a common bird across the Caribbean islands; these sociable creatures inhabit the blue lagoons, mudflats and lakes, living in colonies that can contain thousands of individuals.
