Soufrière Bay, Saint Lucia St George's Harbor - Grenada Tropical Caribbean Beach in Martinique The Pitons in St Lucia Soufriere bay, St Lucia

Day 1 Fort-De-France, Martinique | Embark

Located on the western coast of Martinique, Fort-de-France will amaze you by the splendor of its bay, a magnificent cut-out in the coastline, considered as one of the most beautiful in the world. At the harbor mouth, on its strip of land, fort Saint-Louis overlooks the capital city of Martinique. If you climb up to it, you can see some breath-taking views. Saint Louis Cathedral and the Schoelcher library bear witness to a secular history, intimately linked to the island’s story. Why not try some fresh coconut at the colorful Grand Marché. Two really pleasant places you can take a breather in, right in the heart of the city, are the garden of Balata and the Aimé Césaire park.

Day 2 Les Saintes

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
During the feast of All Saints in 1493, Christopher Columbus discovered this archipelago of nine islands that he named "The Saints". Today, only two of them are inhabited. Terre de Haut, in the east, is dominated by the Morne Mire hill; at the summit stands Fort Napoleon, paying homage to the islands' history. In the heart of the botanical garden, shared by iguanas and cacti, there is an exceptional view of the Baie des Saintes, one of the most beautiful in the world. On Terre-de-Bas, you'll be charmed by the authenticity of the village of Petites-Anses. Off the coast of the "Saints" archipelago, traditional fishing vessels sail the blue seas of the Caribbean. Don't turn down a coconut "tourment d'amour", a sweet treat you'll be offered when you disembark.

Optional excursions such as a visit to Les Saintes by sailing ship and swimming, exploring Les Saintes onboard a catamaran and swimming, clear-kayak, Les Saintes by boat and swimming, and walking tour and visit to Napoleon Fortress are available for additional fees.

Day 3 Port Elizabeth, Bequia Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
In the heart of the Caribbean, Bequia is the second-largest of 32 islands that make up the country of St Vincent and the Grenadines. This secluded island, strongly attached to its tradition of whale hunting, is popular with visiting yachties and divers. Port Elizabeth, the island's main town, has a lively atmosphere and further afield tropical rainforest and white-sand beaches provide a natural setting for peaceful walks.

Optional excursions such as boarding the catamaran & snorkeling and sunset cruise aboard the catamaran are available for additional fees.

Day 4 Tobago Cays

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Scattered between St Vincent and Grenada, the Tobago Cays comprises five little islands: Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac and Jamesby. This rosary of uninhabited cays in the southern West Indies is a marine park that has some outstanding marine fauna in its turquoise lagoons. Girded and united by a coral reef, these secluded islands are a peaceful paradise for divers, swimmers, and snorkelers.

Day 5 Mayreau Island

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Among the string of paradisiac islands with their white sandy beaches that form the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines archipelago, Mayreau is the smallest. Its peaceful and idyllic atmosphere, far from the madding crowd, invites you to relax. Onshore, make the most of a shaded and fully equipped beach, from where you’ll be able to set off snorkeling to explore superb coral gardens overflowing with life and color.

Day 6 Saint George's, Grenada

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Delicately set against the back of a bay on the west coast of Grenada, Saint George’s attracts newcomers by the beauty of its location and its friendly, festive atmosphere. This “spice island” capital is an excellent base for visiting the surrounding natural sites, but you’ll also want to spend some time here moseying around its narrow streets where colonial houses and lush green gardens coexist. Carenage is Saint George’s lively commercial fishing harbor, high in color, especially when the boats are being loaded with fruit and vegetables destined for neighboring islands. 5 kilometers south, the Grand Anse beach is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean islands.

Optional excursions such as a tour to Grenada aboard the Zodiac, visiting the secrets of the spices island of Grenada, discovering nutmeg and chocolate, and boarding the catamaran to explore the underwater statues are available for additional fees.

Day 7 Pigeon Island Beach | Soufriere

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Linked to St Lucia by a sand causeway, Pigeon Island has been a designated National Park since 1979. The tropical vegetation of this wild protected island is home to abundant birdlife. It is easy to explore on foot; the remains of Fort Rodney offer an insight into the region's naval history as well as fabulous views. Two beautiful beaches nestle on the southern side of the island, where you can take a scuba dive adventure, an exciting mix of diving and snorkeling.

Nestled in the crook of a breath-taking bay, the former capital of St Lucia is brimming with attractions. Soufrière is famous for The Pitons, volcanic spires that tower over the entrance to the town, and you will fall in love with its authentic Creole charm and warm friendly atmosphere. Aside from diving and swimming at exquisite beaches, don't miss Diamond Falls Botanical Gardens for the mineral baths, one of the natural wonders of the Caribbean.

Optional excursions such as hike on the Atlantic coast, sailing lesson, and discovery of Soufriere by sea and land are available for additional fees.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
