Join tall ship Blue Clipper for a sailing holiday in the Caribbean and experience breathtaking anchorages in azure waters.

Explore the paradisiacal islands of St Vincent and the Grenadines, starting and ending on the island of St Lucia. Enjoy traditional tall ship sailing, island hopping, wildlife spotting and relaxing on tropical islands. This adventure has something for everyone, from perfect sailing in the trade winds to exploring secluded anchorages and colourful Caribbean villages far away from crowded tourist resorts.

The volcanic peaks make the island of St Lucia a spectacular landmark in the Windward Islands and provide a breathtaking starting point for your Caribbean sailing holiday. The villages along the coastline are mainly traditional Caribbean fishing towns, lined with volcanic beaches and great snorkelling and diving opportunities. The interior of the island is home to dense rainforest with varying levels of hiking trails if you feel like hiking before boarding the Blue Clipper.

The Grenadines are a chain of small idyllic islands with an abundance of picturesque anchorages, dense jungle, rolling hills and black volcanic sand beaches. Explore the set used for the film Pirates of the Caribbean and explore waterfalls just a short walk from the beach. Spend some time here snorkelling, swimming and kayaking along the coastline full of natural rock formations. Blue Clipper has stand-up paddle boards and a double kayak for guests to explore the coastline – (these are included in the price). The exact route always depends on wind and weather and is therefore not fixed in advance.

A typical day on board:
After a hearty breakfast, the crew starts preparing the sails and discusses the plan for the day with the guest crew. After checking the charts and raising the anchor, the sails are set in search of a scenic anchorage, preferably off the beaten track. From hoisting the sails to steering the ship, you are cordially invited to participate in all sailing activities on board. After a few hours of sailing, the anchor is dropped and guests can explore ashore or just relax on the ship with a book – the choice is yours.

Tip: St Lucia can be reached from Europe by plane via London Gatwick and London Heathrow (Airlines: British Airways and Virgin Atlantic).
