Savor the beauty of the surrounding waters of St. Barths, Saba, and Sint Maarten while diving among the most amazing marine biodiversity. Enjoy days filled with bright sunshine, starry nights, and warm tropical breezes on a 7-night cruise aboard your own elegant yet high performing cruising sailboat with stops on the French and Dutch side of Saint-Martin, majestic Saba, and sophisticated St. Barths (short for Saint-Barthélemy). Visit deserted islands rimmed with powder white sand and snorkel with sea turtles and colorful fish.  Take a hike up one of the hills to gaze down at the sparkling turquoise water. Marvel as dolphins or other sea creatures swim around our yacht and huge iguanas greet us at ports. Enjoy island nightlife at colorful local beach bars or take in the brilliant multitude of stars at some of our remote anchorages. Enjoy shopping and French cuisine in ultra-swanky Gustavia. See the Caribbean like never before with a professional crewed sailboat charter!

Itinerary
The following is a proposed itinerary. All planned activities are dependent on the weather and a host of other variables. Sometimes we begin our trip from the other side of St. Martin, resulting in the same or similar daily activities and overnight stops, just in a different order. The safety of the guests and the well-being of the vessel are paramount as we customize our itinerary to the conditions of the day. We have a bank of activities to keep us active and comfortable in almost any condition.

Day One: Welcome Aboard 

 

Our driver will meet your party at the Princess Juliana International Airport to bring you directly to our awaiting yacht in Marigot. Upon boarding, we will settle in, discuss our safety protocols, and give a few pointers about life at sea before sailing over to the deserted island of Tintamarre in time for sunset. You will enjoy cocktails and dinner aboard as the sun sets on your first day at sea.

Day Two: Tintamarre and St. Barths

After breakfast, we can snorkel among the sea turtles at Tintamarre before setting sail for St. Barths. Brunch will be served underway as Captain Trey navigates the outer islands of the French Caribbean. We will anchor in the harbor at the picturesque Port of Gustavia in time to clear customs and enjoy dinner at one of the town’s fine French restaurants.

Day Three: St. Barths

The divers will head ashore for our first dive in the pristine waters of St. Barth’s marine preserve. Non-divers can enjoy some quiet time on the boat or explore Gustavia before reconnecting for an afternoon tour of St. Barth’s beaches and a dinner of fine Caribbean cuisine.

Day Four: St. Barths to Saba

Pirate Jean will serve brunch aboard before we set sail for Saba. It will be a lazy day of downwind sailing as we watch the tiny yet rugged island come into focus. After dropping anchor, we can snorkel in the crystal clear waters while Pirate Jean prepares another of her culinary masterpieces.

Day Five: Saba

 

The divers will head ashore to experience the finest diving in the Caribbean. The crew will reconnect in the afternoon for a tour of Saba’s lovely mountains as well as her eccentric arts and cuisine.

Day Six: Saba to Sint Maarten

After breakfast and a brief morning snorkel excursion, we will make the upwind passage back to Sint Maarten. We’ll drop anchor in Simpson Bay, then dinghy ashore for dinner at one of Sint Maarten’s fine international restaurants.

Day Seven: Sint Maarten to Marigot

Day seven begins with a dive excursion hosted by some of our good friends on Sint Maarten. The rest of the crew can relax on board or explore the island ashore with Pirate Jean. We’ll all meet for lunch at the Sint Maarten Yacht Club before enjoying a relaxing afternoon on Simpson Bay Beach. Dinner will be served on board after we make our final passage back to Marigot.

Day Eight: Departure

Our final breakfast will be served aboard before we sail through the Sandy Ground Bridge as we make our way back to Marigot. Our driver will return you to the airport for your flight home.

I had an incredible first open-water dive with Blue Moon Adventures! From the ship wreck we toured, to the amazing coral, to the sharks, everything was unique and exciting. I can only hope my next dive is this much fun!
