Breathtaking topography, secluded beaches and rich history coupled with convenient travel options for visitors coming from the U.S. and the United Kingdom make St. Lucia a prime destination for chartering. Join Whisper and its crew on a scenic and interactive island adventure in this Caribbean paradise.
Day One: Step onboard Whisper at the Marina at Marigot Bay on the western coast of St. Lucia, and meet Captain Clive Youlten and crew over lunch. Sail north to an overnight anchorage off Pigeon Island in Gros Islet, and spend the afternoon exploring the national park’s well-laid trails and historic artifacts, including Fort Rodney—used to spy on French Ships in neighboring Martinique in the 18th Century. Spend the evening onboard Whisper sipping cocktails and enjoying freshly caught fish prepared by Chef Chris Deighan.
Day Two: Decompress with a round or two of golf at the St. Lucia Golf Club or with a book on the beach at Pigeon Island. For dinner, head to Rodney Bay Village nearby and enjoy local cuisine and rum along with the sounds of live bands before spending the night anchored in the harbor.
Day Three: Spice up the morning with a four-hour ATV tour of St. Lucia’s 1,000 acres of rainforest, beaches and rivers. After lunch, beginner and expert mountain bikers alike can rent equipment from Bike St. Lucia and explore a range of trails that trace the island’s unique landscape. In the evening, enjoy a champagne sunset cruise back to Marigot Bay for a fine dining experience at the Rainforest Hideaway restaurant.
Day Four: From Marigot Bay, cruise south to Anse Cochon Beach for fun in the sun. Snorkel through a host of beautiful coral formations and schools of bright, tropical fishes before heading to lunch at one of Ti Kaye Village’s many renowned restaurants. Finish the day with a sunset cruise back to Marigot Bay for an overnight anchorage.
Day Five: Start the morning exploring the many wonders of St. Lucia’s rainforest with a zip lining adventure through its canopy. After lunch, take a scenic hike through the Millet Nature Trail and explore the park’s bird sanctuary, which is home to a host of exotic birds, including five endemic species (St. Lucia’s Black Finch, Parrot, Warbler, Oriole and Pewee). Return to Marigot Bay and enjoy a full body massage at the Marigot Bay Hotel’s Lapli Spa or a day’s end horseback ride on the beach before heading to dinner at JJ’s Plaza Restaurant overlooking the bay.
Day Six: Set out on an early morning cruise south to the town of Soufriere and anchor near the Pitons— two side-by-side volcanic spires in the sea. Tour the town’s Diamond Falls at the Soufriere Estate—one of the oldest and best preserved estates on St. Lucia—and take a dip in its rejuvenating sulfur springs before touring the botanical gardens nestled in a natural gorge on the property. Dine at Ladera Resort for lunch before taking a late afternoon dive near the Pitons and enjoying an evening onboard Whisper.
Day Seven: Spend the final day in St. Lucia sailing Whisper up and down its western coast or relaxing at one of the island’s many luxury resorts. In the late afternoon, hit the shops at Marina Village in Marigot Bay before a sunset dinner cruise onboard Whisper. Interested in additional destinations and itineraries?
