Sail with Skyelark to explore the Leeward islands of the Caribbean in luxury.
Join Skyelark as she sails and explores some of the most idyllic islands in the Caribbean. Your starting point is the island of St Lucia, where volcanic spires rise out of the water almost vertically – one of the most spectacular landmarks of St Lucia.
Setting the sails
Set the sails and follow the trade winds north to the picturesque villages and anchorages on Martinique. Think, blue water snorkelling, delicious French food and breath-taking bays to explore.
The island of Dominica is mountainous and covered in rainforest reserves teeming with wildlife. The National Park is home to the volcanically heated, steam-covered Boiling Lake, hot springs and the 65m-tall Trafalgar Falls. The capital of Dominica, Roseau, is full of colourful timber houses and beautiful botanical gardens.
Our final stop is Isles de Saintes where you can once again enjoy French hospitality in these pretty islands before we head back to St Lucia. Enjoy warm trade wind sailing conditions mixed with exploring these beautifully quintessential Caribbean islands.
Under the stars
Aboard Skyelark each meal will be home-cooked using locally available ingredients where possible, resulting in the most delicious spread of food every evening. With minimal light pollution, the Caribbean have some of the clearest skies you’ll have ever seen so make use of Skyelark’s generous seating area on deck and eat beneath the stars.
During ten day voyages, 4 meals (lunch or dinner) are to be eaten ashore at guests expense to ensure the full Caribbean experience.
