Our New Base in St. Lucia Offers a Gateway to the Caribbean
We’re pleased to announce the launch of our new base in St. Lucia at Rodney Bay Marina. Take a look at our bareboat fleet and a one-week itinerary on our St. Lucia destination page. St. Lucia joins our four other new bases this year in the Exumas, Naples, Pula and Montenegro.
When sailing St. Lucia, it’s easy to understand why it is so popular with sailors. It’s a fantastic mid-point to explore the exciting Caribbean islands from the British Virgin Islands in the north to Grenada in the south. It’s a short-haul destination too with just three and a half hours flying time from the US east coast. Fly direct to Hewanorra International Airport (UVF), St. Lucia, with American Airlines from Miami, from New York JFK with JetBlue or with Delta from Atlanta.
Our St. Lucia highlights
For snorkeling, sail to Anse Chastanet, Anse Cochon, Marigot Bay’s natural harbor, Castries and Rodney Bay’s Reduit Beach. Or if you are a qualified diver, you will want to see the 1,500ft drop at Petit Piton.
If you love photography and crave impressive views, head to Pigeon Island National Park’s Signal Peak which overlooks Rodney Bay or hike between Petit and Gros Piton, St Lucia’s landmark volcanic peaks. Sail beautiful harbors with an active social scene with anchorages at Rodney Bay and Marigot Bay with their palm-lined beaches and azure waters.
After getting to know St. Lucia, you can plan a thrilling itinerary that takes in some of the Caribbean’s most exciting islands. North or south, your yacht charter from St. Lucia will provide you with a special vacation and an authentic Caribbean experience.
