While there are many ways to experience the Caribbean, exploring acoard an authentic square-rigger tall ship offers an unrivaled experience, and guarantees you an in-depth encounter with all its wonders. Join the Sea Cloud, an extraordinary and historic yacht, for this 8-day voyage that brings you into lesser-known ports of the "Old Caribbean" and offers the relaxed pace of Caribbean life.

Embark the Sea Cloud in the late afternoon and begin your voyage in the Caribbean.

Under Sail

You have the day to enjoy one of the great pleasures of travel anywhere: sailing aboard your barque, seeing the crew go aloft unfurling the sails the traditional way — by hand — as you sail the trade winds. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the many amenities of your unique sailing vessel.

Day 3

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Dominica is called the “Nature Island” because of its beauty and many reserves. Hike through enchanting rainforest, walk up to the ruins of 18th-century Fort Shirley with your Historian, or go for a swim and snorkel. Spend the evening docked in the forested tranquility of Cabrits National Park.

Day 4

Iles des Saintes / Under Sail

Iles des Saintes are decidedly French in character. Visit the town’s shops, galleries and cafés, don some snorkeling gear, or walk with your ship's historian up to Fort Napoleon for panoramic vistas. This afternoon set sail in the Guadeloupe Channel, where the winds fill the square sails in a glorious spectacle.

Day 5

Under Sail / Soufrière & Les Pitons, St. Lucia

Spend the morning sailing. Conditions permitting, lower the Zodiacs so you can go alongside and get great photographs of the Sea Cloud. Anchor under the iconic twin peaks of St. Lucia, called “Les Pitons.” Drive through the active crater, plunge under a tropical waterfall, explore the beautiful botanical gardens, and finish with an incredible view from the hills above.

Day 6

  • Ship
  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Under Sail / Exploring the Grenadines

Spend the morning aboard Sea Cloud under sail, exploring the idyllic Grenadine islands, with their quintessential tropical cays. You have options to take a local catamaran to snorkel at the Tobago Cays or enjoy the sheltered beaches of Mayreau or Union Island.

Day 7

  • Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Under Sail / Bequia, the Grenadines
