Caribbean explorer £525 6 Email Wild Spirit

Hasn’t the Caribbean been flattened by Hurricanes?
Well bits have been and we may visit a couple of islands that are in recovery phase and desperately need some tourist income.
But we start in Grenada and finish in Antigua which are largely unaffected.
Covering about 350 miles in a week and including at least one night sail,
our main island to visit will be hurricane affected Dominica and see its unusaul volcanic activity. We are likely to call in at least one other island, posibly Les Saintes where ‘Death in Paradise’ is filmed.

As long as you travel on the same airline (Virgin or BA) flights are the same as a normal return and we can direct you to a good deal.
