Yachtcharter Itinerary from Guadeloupe
1 Week sailing round Guadeloupe with VPM Yacht-charter:
this trip is designed for relaxing with only short sailing trips in between beautiful and protected anchorages.
1st day: Blue Lagoon
Arrival at the charter base in the Blue Lagoon, check in to the yacht.
Until the early evening there is the possibility to head 3NM east to the “Ilet du Gosier”, a little sandy island full of vegetation which is surrounded by a large coral reef. Ashore on the main island there are numerous Restaurants and Bars to spend a well-deserved first night with creole food and music.
2nd day: Marie Galante / St Louis (Grand Bourg)
Heading 19NM east towards “Marie Galante” this is one of the toughest sails for this week as the prevailing ESE winds will force you to tack your way up to the little fishing village named St Louis or if preferred to Grand Bourg the “largest” village on Marie Galante. Grand Bourg is a picturesque little village which should not be missed. Around Marie Galante you can snorkel in different spots in water full of tropical fishes of all colors and sizes. Care should be taken of the bouys and lobster pots which the local fisherman have placed everywhere around the island.
3rd day: Marie Galante
Exploring Marie Galante and its beaches and anchorages.
4th day: Les Saintes / Baie de Marigot
Heading west to the archipelago of “Les Saintes”, where you can find a good number of anchorages and the natural harbor. This is a historical site because the entire fleet of Admiral de Grasse, consisting of over 35 Ships, anchored here before his defeat by the British admiral Rodney in 1782.
First stop in Les Saintes should be Baie de Marigot where you can find a lovely little restaurant serving local specialties.
5th day: Les Saintes
Continue to explore the various anchorages in “Les Saintes” or spend half a day visiting Le Bourges des Saintes, where you can find a beautiful village and numerous little restaurants and bars.
