So French, yet undeniably Caribbean. A cruising area that is beauty unspoilt, culture preserved, a diver’s dream and a hiker’s paradise unlike any other Caribbean destination. Explore volcanic peaks, boiling waters and underwater champagne springs, sparkling waterfalls, rushing streams and rainforest canopies. Caressed by the trade winds and warmed year round by an endless tropical sun, washed on the East by the surging Atlantic and bathed on the West by the balmy Caribbean, the Guadeloupe/Dominica archipelago is a true paradise.

Yacht charter in Guadeloupe inspires sailing itineraries that are particularly appealing for the experienced charterer. This archipelago offers an exciting mix of modern cities, rainforests and secluded beaches. Sailing south to Marie Galante, Iles des Saintes and Dominica offers some of the most beautiful beaches, undeveloped islands and amazing rain forest in the Caribbean.
