This is where you will go on board: Jolly Harbor / Antigua
Our crew will welcome you on board at the cozy marina of Jolly Harbor on the sugarcane island of Antigua. Opposite the bay lies a pink and white sandy beach that stretches for miles, attracting adventurers, water sports enthusiasts, sun worshippers and beach walkers alike. The breathtaking sunset is the highlight of a romantic evening stroll. Embarkation takes place at 19:00 hours.

Afterwards, there will be dinner together in the comfortable lounge, where you will quickly feel at home on deck and soon get to know your fellow sailors. From Jolly Harbor, there is the possibility of a helicopter flight to the active volcano on the neighborhood island Montserrat. Antigua International Airport can be reached with one or two stops from many cities. Please feel free to contact us - we will be happy to assist you with the individual planning of your arrival and departure.

365 beaches - one for every day of the year! The former British colony is not only famous for the annual Antigua Sailing Week, one of the most important regattas in the world, but also for its 365 dream beaches. After being discovered by Christopher Columbus, the overall picture of the island was shaped by British colonial rule, which lasted around 350 years. Make the most of your stay by visiting English Harbor Town with its perfectly restored architecture. The ruins of the fort, which are open to the public and well-worth seeing, testify to the colony's efforts to protect itself against invasion from the sea.

Our sailing waters: The Windward Islands in the Caribbean Sea
Our ship is not one that likes to lie idle in the harbor, so it is time to cast off the lines the next day. After receiving safety instructions and an introduction to sailing by the ship's crew, you will soon be able to take part in sailing yourself - no previous knowledge is required. We will set course for Guadeloupe and its neighborhood islands in the Caribbean Sea. You will get to know the ship as seaworthy and reliable, and one that has proven itself in all weather conditions. You can help actively with the sailing manoeuvres or just relax and watch. The setting and trimming of the sails during the days at sea will become an ever more fascinating spectacle from a long gone seafaring era.

Island hopping, anchor bays, time on shore
During the trip, we will make some stops, either at ports or in sheltered bays. Where we go ashore depends on the wind and weather conditions, and is decided at short notice by the captain, who will take your wishes into account whenever possible. This ensures that your sailing trip is a pleasant mix of adventure, relaxation, active participation and pure enjoyment. St. John's in northwest Antigua is the first option for a stop. In the center of the island's capital, small streets and markets invite you to take a stroll. In the Heritage and Redcliffe Quay shopping centers, you can do some duty-free shopping and get some good bargains. Our tip: Don't miss out on a visit to one of the rum distilleries - some of the rums on offer are considered to be the most remarkable ones in the world.

This is where you will disembark: Pointe-à-Pitre / Guadeloupe
The butterfly-shaped island of Guadeloupe is influenced largely by French, African, as well as East and West Indian cultures. This mix is specially evident in the architecture, which ranges from the French colonial style to the Hindu temple. Be enchanted by a fascinating blend of exotic smells. The cuisine of the Antilles is characterized by fruits, spices, coconuts and seafood of all kinds. We will drop anchor again in the small bay of Deshaies. On the west coast of Guadeloupe, we will be situated in a quiet and scenic location, from where you can start to discover the island. Besides wide sandy beaches, there are also a botanical garden, walking trails through the hilly landscape, and maybe even one or two cocktails in one of the countless bars.

For nature lovers, Guadeloupe - the Emerald Island - is a green paradise where you can discover the largest national park in the Caribbean with the highest waterfalls of the Antilles, a treetop path, mysterious mangrove forests, and a lush plant and animal life. From the deck, we will have a breathtaking view of the almost 1,500 meters high volcanic cone of La Soufrière, and will round off the day by watching the stunning sunset. In the port town of Pointe-à-Pitre, you will leave the ship with a sailor's bag full of unforgettable memories of your journey. The island's airfield is located around three kilometers from the port.
