Customer Reviews for Sailing the Leeward Coast

Sailing the Leeward Coast

Step aboard a 45-foot catamaran and listen to a safety briefing. In a matter of moments the crew sets the sails and you’ll be on your way out of the harbor under sail, heading south and west of Gustavia. Your destination will be Pointe de Colombier, Salines Beach or Fork Island, depending on the winds and sea conditions. The captain will drop anchor in the bay and you’ll have an hour to sunbathe, jump into the water from the boat and swim in the warm waters of the bay. Or you may choose to nap on the trampoline net or read a good book under the shade of the bimini. Mineral water, soft drinks, beer and rum punch will be served by the attentive and helpful crew.Notes:Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, sunscreen and a hat. If you choose to swim you will not be supervised, and it is at your own risk. You must climb a ladder to return to the boat after swimming. This tour is only available on select sailings.

While this trip cost considerably more than our other excursions we really felt it was worth it. Friendly crew, beautiful, warm Caribbean waters...What more could you want?

Wonderful, relaxing sail with a very skilled captain! We saw a few turtles before we got into the water for snorkeling, but they took off before we got into the water. The water was not too cold. The fish were colorful! The sailing was true sailing, no motor used until we had to dock. The captain was very personable and friendly. There was a little water hose to rinse off the salt water. The catamaran was beautiful. Highly enjoyable. There were drinks to refresh you after your swim, and help get the taste of seawater out of your mouth. As with everything in St. Barts, it was a bit pricey for a sail and some juice, but still a recommended excursion.
