Enjoy life under sail aboard the exclusively chartered 64-passenger motor yacht Le Ponant. Cruise the southern Caribbean, from Fort-de-France, Martinique, to smaller, remote ports that are inaccessible to larger ships. Visit Martinique’s Balata Gardens, which showcase 3,000 varieties of tropical plants and flowers. Also see the mountainous island of Bequia on the Grenadines; Tobago Cays Marine Park, an archipelago of five pristine, uninhabited islands replete with coral reef complexes; and the Gros and Petit Pitons, St Lucia’s twin volcanic spires, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Venture on to Grenada, one of the world’s largest producers of nutmeg and mace, followed by St. Vincent, with its historic capital of Kingstown.
