The Windward Islands are an archipelago that includes large and small islands of volcanic origin. Today, a number of small states are located on these islands: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia. The nature here is truly unique – mountains, tropical palms, reefs and cozy lagoons with water of various colors.

Local skippers, in addition to their skills in yacht or catamaran management, are well aware of the features of the underwater relief. They swim into the most secluded bays, even where there are no mooring places. Crossings from one island to another can sometimes take up to fifty miles. But you, as a passenger, will simply enjoy your trip and get pleasant emotions and impressions.
