Laurel-Luxury-Yacht-At-Anchor

Captain Roy Hodges, of 73.2 metre Laurel, which is available for charter with Ocean Independence, suggests an island-hopping route between Antigua and St Lucia

Day 1

Meet Laurel in Antigua’s Falmouth Harbour and start the 42nm cruise to Guadeloupe. The two main islands are joined by bridges and a mangrove swamp. Drop anchor at Basse-Terre, which is home to the Parc National and La Soufrière volcano. Head ashore and hike along the treetops on rope bridges and swim in one of the waterfalls. Overnight at Deshaies Harbour and enjoy a dinner on board.

In the morning, start the 33nm cruise to Îles des Saintes, a group of islands at the southern end of Guadeloupe. En route, stop at Pigeon Island for a lunchtime snorkel in the Coral Garden for the chance to spot angelfish, parrotfish and butterflyfish. Upon arrival at Îles des Saintes, you can either anchor at Bourg des Saintes on the main island in front of the town or opt for a quieter vibe off Îlet à Cabrit.

Prince-Ruperts-Bay-Dominica

Early morning, Laurel will make her way to Prince Rupert Bay in Dominica, which is nicknamed the Nature Island. The natural harbour is the perfect base from which to take a tour of the Indian River, which can only be explored by rowing boat and is surrounded by rainforest and teeming with wildlife. In the afternoon, you can either head inland to explore one of the island’s many waterfalls or take the tender to some secluded snorkelling spots.
