Antigua to the British Virgin IslandsVia St. Barts, Saba and Virgin Gorda
7 days cruising aboard S/Y Ocean Star

Discover why the Caribbean has enthralled adventurers for centuries. Sail along in the steady trade winds and turquoise waters overlooked by granite coves and jungle-covered peaks.

This adventure begins on the British Caribbean island of Antigua. Here, you'll join the rest of the crew aboard S/Y Ocean Star in Nelson's Dockyard, one of the premier tourist attractions in Antigua. No trip to Antigua would be complete without a tour of this restored Georgian yard, named after the famous English Admiral Horatio Nelson, yet after the tour it's anchors up and off we go, destination St. Barts.

This first overnight sail will really introduce you to life on passage and life aboard a working vessel as you learn the ropes and rotate through your time on watch, your time to sleep and your time to help out in the galley.

We'll spend a full day exploring the very chic French island of St. Barts before setting sail once again for Saba, a tiny island that rises steeply from the azure sea. Saba is a magical experience and you may even feel like you have stepped back in time as you explore the pristine marine park and rainforest.

  • Shared accommodation aboard the vessel
  • All meals aboard (non alcoholic beverages)
  • Sailing instruction from the professional crew

The final overnight passage brings us to the British Virgin Islands, where you'll be reminded why this group of 36 islands is described as a sailor's paradise. Visit Virgin Gorda's famous rock formation, the Baths. Dip beneath the aquamarine waters and meet marine life of every shape and shade. Relax at the beach at the Bitter End Yacht Club and celebrate your crew's accomplishment at the final dinner in Road Town before boarding your flight home the following morning. All in all, this 7-day voyage will be something to remember.
