Our Dufour 45 performance is a very modern yacht with all the benefits that go with it. It is immaculately maintained and a pleasure to be on board. If your fed up with tatty mainstream charter boats that always give problems, fed up with spending all day in the supermarket provisioning, fed up with the responsibility of skippering and parking. Then this is for you, relax and let us do all the hard work. Our holidays are fully inclusive.
Sailing around the Grenadines is undoubtedly the best sailing in the world. We have consistent wind every day, beautiful clear blue water. Lots of fantastic anchorages giving plenty of time for swimming off the back of the yacht. Relaxing in the evening at anchor in Tobago Cays is an unforgettable experience. Join us.
My wife and I spent a glorious holiday with Scott and Julia on S/Y Katerina. With a captain and hostess we had a carefree and relaxing sailing trip with none of the hassles bareboat charters bring. The trip was tailored to our requirements, the boat superb and we benefitted from the extensive local knowledge our hosts provided. We had all the advantages of having our own yacht and none of the worries and work. We would thoroughly recommend Caribbean Yachting Holidays as the very best way to sail the Grenadines.
My husband and I spent 5 days on the boat with Scott and Julia, we loved our experience sailing through Grenada and SVG and would highly recommend it. Scott and Julia are very knowledgeable and experienced sailers, they made us feel comfortable and shared their passion for sailing. They are both very friendly and well travelled. They really went out of their way to accommodate my food allergies and Julia took care of all the paper work related to immigration and customs, making sure it was a hustle free trip for us. Thank you for showing us a great time.
We have previously done bare boat charters in the Caribbean, but this new service caught our attention - and we though why bother to do all the work ourselves. What a wonderful surprise! Scott and Julia were so friendly and helpful! Not at all like our last experience. Plus I actually learned a lot from Scott who is very professional and experienced. It was a revelation.
Thank you both very much. We plan on seeing you again in another year or so.
My sailing holiday in the Caribbean with Julia and Scott was a truly amazing experience. We sailed from St Lucia to St Vincent down through the Grenadines and on to Granada, visiting eight beautiful Caribbean Islands, stopping off at each to see local sites, stunning scenery, restaurants and beaches. With the advantage of sailing with experienced hosts who have much local knowledge to draw on, made my holiday so interesting and an absolute joy. I would thoroughly recommend this experience to anyone wishing to see the incredible Caribbean.
If what you want from a beautiful yachting holiday is a relaxed atmosphere, in friendly company with an extremely knowledge crew then Caribbean Yachting Holidays is the one for you. Scott and Julia create the idyllic holiday, unwind on their beautiful yacht, enjoy their interesting and entertaining company or spend some time alone - they instinctively know what you want and make you feel at home the minute you step aboard. Nothing is too much trouble. Their extensive knowledge of the Caribbean islands is incredible and their experience and expertise of sailing will ensure you have a memorable holiday in gorgeous surroundings doing as much or as little exploring as you want.
The boat is as described, a fine cruising yacht with comfortable accommodation and a welcoming crew. They put together an excellent sailing itinerary which allowed us to sample this fascinating chain of islands, covering the sailing itself, beautiful anchorages and interesting local towns and night life. We especially liked Mayreau, Tobago Cays and Mustique but, really, all the destinations along this chain are worth visiting. Basil's Bar Mustique, Dennis's Hideaway Mayreau , Lambie Queen Carriacou and Janti's happy Island off Union Island are definitive experiences only improved when accessed from a boat anchored in the bays. The Katrina crew are well plugged in with the locals and this both gives you a feeling of security and introduces you to the scene.
You are based in Port Louis Marina. You are on the local number 1 bus route which costs $1 US pp on this you can visit St Georges town and Grand Anse beach. Day tours of the island are very popular with lots to see. There is an on site bar and restaurant, spa/beauty salon and swimming pool.
