Fort de France (Martinique)
Fort de France is the capital of France's Caribbean overseas territory of Martinique. It is also one of the major cities in the Caribbean with it's busy commercial center and historic fort mentioned above.

Fort de France has a lot of history dating back to 1638 when the first fort was build. It was subsequently battered with military mite then rebuilt in 1669. A series of volcanic eruptions destroyed part of the area only to be rebuild to what you see today. Most sailing vessels pass by since there is not much to see other than what you see from your ship.


Chastenet, St Lucia


Soufriere & Les Pitons, St Lucia
The most notable landmarks in St. Lucia are without doubt the Pitons. The towering twin volcanoes of Gros Piton and Petite Piton dominate the landscape of the west coast of St. Lucia.

Gros Piton stands approximately 2,400 feet above sea level and Petit Piton approximately 2,200 feet; close to the town of Soufriere in the southwest of the island. The Pitons, now dormant, are one of the most famous landmarks in the entire Caribbean region.


Bequía, Grenadines
Pretty as a picture describes our beloved Bequia. You’ll be captivated by the island’s charm while strolling along the lovely harbor with its shops, restaurants, and pastel-painted gingerbread homes. There’s a long tradition of boat building and you’ll find a slew of handcrafted model ships, old nautical charts, and rare sailing books to bring back home.

Union Island, , Grenadines
The most southerly island of the Grenadines, Union Island is a mere three miles by one mile, garnished with two dramatic peaks and a population of 2000. Once you land on shore, you won’t want to leave. Union Island is a sailor’s delight offering pretty anchorages, a couple of rowdy bars and some good restaurants. There is mile after mile of undisturbed sand and wild mangoes for the taking.

St. Vincent, Grenadine Islands
St. Vincent glimmers like an emerald in the sea. A boat ride along the coast is the best way to appreciate the island’s volcanic origins; and visit the Falls of Baleine, a breath taking waterfall that spills from a mass of foliage into a rockbound pool. Kingstown, the capital, is an 18th century town worth exploring. A walking tour begins at the docks and leads to the farmers’ market (Saturday mornings), past shops, restaurants, and old churches. Beachcombers will find beautiful black sand on the leeward side, proof of the island’s volcanic birth. Its botanical gardens are the oldest in the hemisphere.
