Sailing in the Caribbean
The Caribbean, or the Caribbean as it is also called, is a chain of islands stretching from Florida to the north and down to South America. The Caribbean is a border between the Atlantic and the Caribbean. We sail among the southern Caribbean and start from Martinique or St. Lucia, depending on departure. The two islands are adjacent to each other and with them as a starting point we then sail south down towards St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The Grenadines have been named the most beautiful sailing area in the world and consist of a pearl band of islands located between St Vincent in the north and Grenada in the south. Our sailing trips in the Caribbean give you an exciting and memorable experience. You will experience wonderful sailing days and the best of what the Caribbean has to offer. Both black and white sandy beaches, turquoise lagoons, snorkeling with sea turtles and eating grilled dinners on the beach.

Sail in the Caribbean with crew
During a sailing trip on our boats, you will experience sailing at its best, without any worries. On board the boat you are in safe hands with the crew. They cook, guide to hidden paradise bays, recommend restaurants and sail the boat while you can just enjoy. You have breakfast and lunch on the boat while dinner is eaten at a restaurant. There is no must sail on the sailboat, for your part you can just relax and go, but of course you can participate in the sailing however much you want. The combination of being taken care of by the crew while getting to visit new destinations every day makes it a holiday you won’t forget.
An ordinary day on our boats often starts with a wonderful morning dip. Meanwhile, your host prepares the breakfast buffet. After everyone has eaten saturated and satisfied, it carries off to sea to sail on to today’s destination. As we sail to the next destination you can sunbathe, swim, read a book or just enjoy the surroundings. As it approaches lunch, it smells good from below the kitchen. The lunch is often enjoyed in a turquoise bay followed by a swim from the boat. After lunch, take you to the harbor, cove or perhaps town where you spend the night. In the evening you get a chance to try on the local cuisine. End the evening at a local bar before letting the sea rock you to sleep in the boat.
Customer reviews about sailing with us
No previous knowledge required

You can also book a whole boat just for your company, bring your family or friends and let our skipper and hosts pamper you.
Experience the dream of Sailing in the Caribbean
Depending on departure, our sailing trips in the Caribbean today are based on Martinique or St Lucia. Martinique belongs to France and St Lucia is a former British colony in the southern Caribbean. Worth noting is that on St. Lucia you drive on the left side of the road and Queen Elisabeth II adorns the dollar bills.
Le Marin & Rodney Bay
Martinique är den underbara ön där marinan Le Marin finns. St Lucia är den andra pärlan där marinan innehar namnet Rodney Bay. Det är St Lucia och Rodney Bay som är målgången för den årliga Atlantseglingen, Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC). Både Le Marin och Rodney Bay är två stora marinor.
Along the area we visit and while we are sailing in the Caribbean there are few marinas like these. However, there are plenty of turquoise bays, however, which is why we either moor at a buoy or anchor at most of the stops during the trip. The dinghy that is on board allows you to explore the bay or possibly take you ashore, if desired. At six o’clock the sun rises in the Caribbean and due to the time shift, you often wake up early in the morning. Afterwards, we head south from St Lucia to the next island in the desert chain called St Vincent. Here you will see black sand beaches as the island has long been an active volcano, cool and different. Many associate St Vincent with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ because parts of the films were recorded here. Particularly famous from the films is the Gulf of Wallilabou Bay.
Few people know that the island of Bequia, which lies south of St. Vincent, is a popular retreat for many Swedes today. Interestingly enough, today there are both hotels and restaurants owned by Swedes. The bay we usually add to is called Admiralty Bay. Here is the wonderful beach, Princess Margaret Beach, which usually tops among the guests’ favorite beaches during the sailing trip.
Local reggae music
Inland from Port Elizabeth, local reggae music is often heard all the way to St Vincent and Bequia boats, which belong to the same nation called St Vincent and the Grenadines. Bequia belongs to the Grenadines just like many other islands south of St. Vincent. The Grenadines consist of islands, coral reefs, sand dunes and small fishing villages.
All islands are unique
Each island is unique in its own way and has its own charm as well as offering unique experiences and adventures. The photographs from the Grenadines are perfect as postcard images with white sandy beaches, turquoise bays and palm trees. Two favorite places with many are Salt Whistle Bay on the island of Mayreau and Tobago Cays which are right next door.
Salt Whistle Bay
This is a fantastic turquoise bay where the beach stretches in a semi-circle around the bay. Here it is easy to relax in the meantime and eventually possibly get into the relaxed Caribbean rhythm. This is most easily achieved by walking barefoot along the beach, hearing the waves roll in as you watch the sun go down into the horizon. Finally, after we then sank around among the fantastic islands of the southern Grenadines for a couple of days, the boat later headed north again.
On the way back
Some of the islands on the return route are the same as you visited before, but in the meantime the boat adds to new exciting places. The mountain peaks of St. Vincent and St. Lucia you can see from afar. The islands are tropical green with deep jungle and vegetation. Rain clouds gather around the high peaks, which sometimes provide a welcome shed. After only a few minutes the rain is gone and the hot sun dries quickly off the tire. A sailing trip in the Caribbean is as exciting as it is varied. The islands in the Caribbean offer a wonderful variety of places to visit, while giving plenty of time for sailing, sun, swimming and relaxation. A journey of experiences that bring memories to life. Note that the sailing route and places we visit may change depending on the weather and wind.
Boats we sail in the Caribbean
During our sailing trips we sail with different types of boats. We always choose large and spacious sailing boats with five cabins where up to ten guests can stay comfortably while the sailing trip is in progress. Even down in the lounge, everyone gets comfortable space to hang out. The front deck is usually the favorite spot aboard the boat, here you can meanwhile sail the boat in peace and quiet sunbathe, hear the whistling of the waves or maybe see a dolphin jump in front of the bow. At the back of the boat is a bathing jetty and ladder that makes it easy to get in and out of the cooling sea. If you are a larger company that wants to sail a specific boat, we will of course arrange it, welcome to contact us.

Sailing trip - why should you choose it?
You visit many places
As the boat sails to a new destination every day, you will therefore experience many new places during a sailing trip. At the same time you reach places by sailboat that you would otherwise not be able to reach, so you get to see places you might not otherwise have seen.
You get both sun, swimming and adventure
On a sailing trip you get the perfect combination between an active holiday and a relaxing holiday. This is because you decide whether you want to be involved in sailing or if you prefer to lie and enjoy the sun.
You will be groomed by staff
On board you have a skipper and a host who is responsible for your well-being and security throughout the journey. At the same time, they sail the boat, serve good food and drinks and show you to new places. Not many hotels offer it.
You get to learn new things
It does not matter if you have previous experience of sailing and boating as the crew on board handles sailing and the boat. You can of course be part of the sailing as much or as little as you want. You can learn a lot of new things during the trip.
You get to know new people
Our boats can be booked by one or up to ten people. If you do not fill a whole boat, you will meet other lovely travelers on board. This has meant that we have many sunshine stories where travelers met friends for life during a sailing trip with us.
You create memories for life
Whatever holiday you book and wherever you live, you will most likely have a wonderful holiday. But on a sailing trip you get to do something extra, something that you may not be used to, and it results in memories you will not soon forget.
You have everything packed and ready
When you buy a sailing trip, everything is packed and ready from the start. The goal is that you should only be able to relax, therefore everything from airfare to food on the boat is included. You therefore do not have to plan all that may otherwise be required for a trip.

Here you will find useful and useful information that you should read through now or later before sailing in the Caribbean.

Sail in the Caribbean and experience its magical islands The Caribbean stretches in a chain all the way from Florida down to Venezuela. Farthest north is Cuba and farthest south are Trinidad and Tobago. The islands border the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean. Today, the Caribbean consists of more than 700 islands, copper and reefs and there are 13 independent island nations. The islands today belong to several different nations Some of the islands in the Caribbean today belong to different nations such as France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the United States. We have so far chosen to sail in the southern part of the Caribbean, more specifically in the area known as the Grenadines. We will initially sail between two nations of St. Lucia and St. Vincent / Grenadines. Both St. Lucia and St. Vincent / Grenadines are independent nations, the currency used is the East Caribbean Dollar. St. Lucia The island of St. Lucia itself is today a 620 square kilometer large island with approximately 170,000 inhabitants, most often described as the paradise on earth. Notably, however, St Lucia has previously belonged to France a full 7 times and England as well. From 1814 to 1967, when the island gained self-government, St. Lucia belonged to Britain during that time. However, on February 22, 1979, it became completely independent St Lucia’s most famous landmark is today the two mountain peaks Pitons which lies between Soufrière and Choiseul on the west side of the island. St. Vincent & the Grenadines St Vincent and the Grenadines consist of 32 smaller and larger islands and here live about 100,000 inhabitants. The main island is St. Vincent and together with two thirds of the archipelago of the Grenadines, they form the country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Grenadines are today divided between St. Vincent and Granada. In addition to St. Vincent and the Grenadines belong to St. Vincent islands such as Bequia, Canouan, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Union Island and Petit St. Vincent. Since October 27, 1979, it has finally been possible to call itself an independent state. However, it is important to mention that you are still part of the British Commonwealth. The total land area is 389 square kilometers and only St. Vincent is 344 square kilometers. St Vincent is a volcanic island where you can find both black and white beaches, all islands in the Grenadines now have white sandy beaches.
Arrival in St. Lucia If you land on St. Lucia during Saturday afternoon, your driver is waiting for you. The transfer from the airport takes about one hour and thirty minutes. It goes to Rodney Bay Marina where the boat and crew are finally waiting. Afterwards, when you finally arrived at Rodney Bay and make yourself at home on the boat, the sun has already had the chance to go down and so it gets quite dark outside. That’s why you spend the first evening at the marina. You throw (finally) loose on Sunday morning as soon as everyone on board is ready with breakfast. Sometime during your trip from London to St Lucia you will be assigned a paper which you will later need to declare during your flight to St Lucia. Read this paper thoroughly and fill in your personal information, as well as where you will be during your stay while you visit the island. Please write Rodney Bay when this information is requested and that you will arrive as soon as you land transported and stay aboard a sailboat. However, do not forget to fill in the boat’s name for that part Do you need to vaccinate before you sail in the Caribbean? Today’s recommendations for sailing in the Caribbean for less than three weeks are as follows: Updated basic protection, (tetanus, diphtheria) Possible cholera protection Hepatitus A Hepatitis B However, you need to complete the vaccination no later than one month before your departure. Please carry your yellow vaccination book with you if you have one the next time you should vaccinate. allergies If you have any allergies or special requests regarding food, it is important that you inform us well in advance of the trip. If you do it afterwards and while we sail it will be difficult to meet your requirements in a good way. You cannot sail in the Caribbean without a valid passport Important to emphasize is the fact that you must also be provided with a passport that has a validity period of 6 months from the date of departure. While you are sailing in the Caribbean and enjoying life, your skipper will need access to your passport. This in order to eventually be able to make and clear between the nations you travel between. Valuables For security, you should immediately make copies of passports, bank cards, air tickets and other important papers. (It is always good to have a copy of them at home in Sweden and one in the bag.) Which travel insurance applies when you are sailing in the Caribbean? Look over so you have good travel insurance or check with your home insurance. It is also possible to take out travel insurance and cancellation insurance via More Sailing. Currency and card payment Money is important to make up for on the trip and at St. Lucia and in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the currency is the East Caribbean Dollar. US dollars also work but often at a worse exchange rate. Note that at almost half of the stops during the trip there are ATMs. The opportunity to sail in the Caribbean and stay aboard a boat The feeling of sailing in the Caribbean is indescribable, but staying aboard the boat itself is not that different from staying at home. However, the biggest difference is that in the course of sailing, you will experience limited access to water and electricity on board. Within the Caribbean itself, there are few marinas and the most common way to date is to add to a buoy. Then you can possibly take the dinghy ashore as soon as everyone on board is ready for it. This is where the sailing may be at the beginning, perhaps for some on board, when you have to think about being frugal with the water and possibly taking shorter showers. For the most part, while sailing, you can charge mobile phones and cameras aboard the boat. However, you can only use 220V sockets when you are moored in the marina and when you are still lying down and can thus have the generator running. However, while sailing, you only have access to 12V outlets and nothing else. Usually there are now ten guests and two of the staff on the boat. Guests sleep while sailing distributed two and two in the five cabins that are on board. The skipper and the hostess sleep in the skipper’s cabin and in the salon. Note that there are also three toilets with showers on the boat.
