Experience something many people don’t know still exists in the 21st century—the thrill of life under sail—in the region of the world where sailing is best. With the reliable trade winds filling Sea Cloud’s sails, you’ll have ample opportunities to stand on deck and watch the orchestrated frenzy of the crew members going aloft in the web of riggings to hand-set 30 sails. Discover the cultures and wildlife of the Caribbean by sailing into bays of idyllic islands to explore. You’ll be able to snorkel or swim in the warm Caribbean waters and explore tropical reefs and undersea gardens. Stroll waterfront towns where the patois reflects the mosaic of cultures in these islands. Hike a jungle trail in search of parrots or enjoy a palm-studded beach. Each island offers a unique rhythm, and your expedition can be as active or relaxing as you choose.
