In my stat I can see a lot of english incoming, so, you’ll be happy to read informations in your own language.
Dreaming of a cruise getaway? Start planning your vacation to the best Caribbean islands and find where to start, what to do and more with our island travel skippers.
We are a small corporation, who want to help you to find a deal for sailing around our beautiful islands. We are french skippers in Caribean Islands, and many of us speak english ( and better than me ). I, François, am your 1st contact. I ‘ll be glad to receive your visit and questions about your hollidays projects.
– You don’t know very well those french fabulous islands : Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Martin. I know them well, and more… I am skipper and sailing teacher since 2000 in all caribes (BVI to Grenada ), So I can give you precious informations if you want to sail around them with a local skipper who speak a funky english.
I can find you a boat, with US standard ( air conditionning….good wine… and « gastronomique restaurants » …) I know also you like snorkeling, so I can stear you on the best places around.
To organise your perfect cruise with a skipper you ‘ll have many questions:
1- Where should I go sailing in caraibe ? Guadeloupe, Martinique, Antigua & Barbuda, St Martin, les Grenadines, British Virgin Islands.. Each destination is fantastic, and need a visit, of course, but my advise will be different is you have only 7 days or 15 days. Different if you are beganners or sailors….
2- Witch boat for sailing in caraibe? Catamaran or monohull ? In caraibe cat is more usual, because life is outside, so the cockpit is more important than the saloon. But the monohull is more sensible, and better up-wind…. This choice will depend of your expérience, but cat or mono is possible.
3- What kind of cruise do you need ? Some people want to learn, others want to relax, and others doesn’t know yet…. The boat and the skipper will be an important choice. But with « skippers associés » it will be possible to find you a solution.
4- what is the budget for a sailing trip in caraibe ? I can find you all standard starting to 120€/Day/pers minimum. Average price is 150€/day/pers. Depend of avalibities, season, and number of passagers. It’s usually cheaper with a group of 8 pers, but 6 can be OK. If you’re 2, invite friends !
5- After sailing what can we do? Snorkeling is the first and easy activity. ( with rhum punch ) then, visiting, restaurants, paddling, kite surfing, diving…. every thing can be explore. Ask me.
To give you good informations I need to know several important informations so I’ve done a special contact page for you.
I’ll be glad to hear you soon.
