Overview and history

Martinique's west coast offers a myriad of ports of call. Set sail from Le Marin marina to discover the island's leeward coast.

The Rocher du Diamant, one of Martinique's landmarks, dominates the horizon with its imposing shape. This volcanic rock, once used as a landmark by navigators, sparkles in the sunlight. Les Trois-Îlets, with its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, is a true paradise for sea lovers. Explore the colorful seabed by snorkeling, or simply relax on the shore and enjoy the gentle rhythm of Caribbean life.

Saint-Pierre, once known as the little Paris of the Antilles, then the little Pompeii of the Caribbean, is a city steeped in history and tragedy. Once the prosperous economic capital of the island, Saint-Pierre was devastated by the volcanic eruption of Mount Pelée in 1902, which killed the majority of its population. Today, the city's ruins bear witness to its glorious past and its resilience in the face of adversity.
Explore the remains of the ancient city, such as the ruined prison and dilapidated theater, and immerse yourself in the fascinating story of this human tragedy. Visit the Volcanological Museum to learn more about the devastating eruption and the rebirth of the city.

Dominica, known as the Nature Island of the Caribbean, is a land of rugged beauty where nature reigns supreme. From majestic mountain peaks to lush rainforests and bubbling hot springs, every corner of the island reveals a unique natural treasure.

Explore the capital, Roseau, with its bustling markets and colorful colonial buildings, then set off to discover the hinterland: hiking trails wind through lush vegetation, offering splendid panoramas of verdant valleys and refreshing waterfalls.

The abundant marine life in the waters surrounding Dominica makes it a paradise for scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts. Explore the colorful coral reefs, home to a multitude of tropical fish, rays and even sea turtles. Observe the colony of humpback whales that live year-round in the island's warm waters, a phenomenon unique in the world.

At the heart of the island lies the Soufrière volcano, whose past eruptions have left their mark on the surrounding landscape. Now dormant, the volcano offers visitors the chance to discover its steaming craters and hot springs, testimony to the power of nature.

But the real wealth of Dominica lies in its original people, the Kalinago, who have preserved their culture and traditions despite centuries of colonization. Meet these descendants of the island's original inhabitants, learn more about their way of life and discover their traditional crafts, such as basketry and woodcarving.

The Saintes archipelago, nestled in the azure waters of the Caribbean, is a true hidden treasure, enchanting travelers with its authentic charm and unspoiled natural beauty. Terre-de-Haut, the archipelago's largest island, welcomes you with its cobbled streets, colorful houses and peaceful atmosphere.

Discover the island's historic heritage with a visit to Fort Napoléon, a former fortress offering a breathtaking view of the surrounding area.
Enjoy the gentle pace of life in Les Saintes as you stroll along the lively quays, where colorful fishing boats sway gently in the waves. Soak up the authentic atmosphere of the local markets, where exotic flavors and artisanal products invite you to discover the island's vibrant culture.

For a relaxing break, there's nothing like lounging on the pristine white sand beaches, lulled by the gentle murmur of the waves and caressed by the tropical sun. Whether you choose to indulge in water sports, discover marine life on a dive or simply relax, Les Saintes is a haven of peace where time seems to stand still.

This cruise promises an unforgettable adventure, with every port of call offering its share of discoveries and wonders.
