The ship anchors off Paramaribo, where everyone comes on board. We set sail for Nieuw Nickerie, a journey of just under a day. On the way, we may make another stopover. On these trips, passengers also have a say in what happens next. Let the crew know your ideas and if possible, they will incorporate them. Together, we will make this trip unforgettable!

New Nickerie is Suriname’s third-largest city and our last stop before the big crossing to the Caribbean. Here we have the opportunity to enjoy Surinamese life for a while in one of the many bars or visit the Bigi Pan Nature Reserve, home to many unusual bird species such as the red ibis.

From New Nickerie, it takes two to three days of sailing to Tobago. This former pirate’s nest was also called the hidden island, because it remained hidden from the rest of the (western) world for so long. Even though people were already living on the island 7,000 years ago. The name means ‘tobacco’. Daniel Defoe situated the story of Robinson Crusoe on Tobago. Although this island is a paradise for nature lovers, tourism here is less developed than in other Caribbean islands. On the north side, you will find beautiful beaches with palm trees and bays where you can be the only boat to anchor. On the south side is one of the most beautiful diving and snorkelling areas in the whole Caribbean: Buccoo Reef. But first we sail to Scarborough, where we will clear customs. Before we sail on to Grenada, we might take a look at the uninhabited islets on the eastern side of Tobago.

Grenada is 10 hours away by ship and was discovered by Columbus in 1498. The island is largely covered in tropical rainforest, along its mountain slopes flow numerous small rivers fed by springs occasionally culminating in waterfalls. Grenada is famous for its nutmeg, which is also used in delicious cocktails. The abundance of tropical fish and the many wrecks surrounding the island make Grenada a paradise for divers and snorkelers.
