Overview and history

Tobago Cays, Mayreau, St-Vincent... so many names, synonymous with dreams, which are inevitably an invitation to travel and discover.

Flavors, fragrances, memories of pirate tales and the treasures of our childhood, combined with the legendary welcome of the West Indians, as well as colors and other marvelous landscapes, will punctuate every stage of the unforgettable cruise offered by Catlante Catamarans, adapted to all yachtsmen, whether novices or seasoned sailors, with an unrivalled concern for comfort, well-being, relaxation and safety.

During idyllic anchorages, you'll discover that the Grenadine archipelago can't be summed up as a picture-postcard image of paradise beaches and turquoise waters synonymous with idleness.

A paradise for nature lovers, snorkelers, fishermen and hikers, the Grenadines archipelago is sure to delight everyone.

This small, independent island state comprises over 600 islands and islets in the southern Caribbean. It harbors priceless natural, cultural and historical treasures, and the omnipresent sunshine alone doesn't explain the heat so characteristic of the Caribbean.

With a surface area of just under 400 km2, the Grenadines are an archipelago of the Lesser Antilles (Caribbean) located in the Leeward Islands between Grenada, Barbados and Saint Lucia. An integral part of the Commonwealth, the Grenadines have a population of around 120,000.

With its many faces, this archipelago shaped by its extremely rich history was colonized by Amerindians almost 5,000 years ago. In the 17th century, a Franco-British treaty granted the Caribbean Indians full possession of the archipelago, including Dominica and St. Vincent.

However, when a Dutch ship wrecked, many slaves landed in the Grenadines, giving rise to the Afro-American Indian people. This mix of cultures gives this Caribbean jewel its authenticity and richness, to which all travelers succumb.

But if the Grenadines archipelago can lay claim to its status as one of the Caribbean's leading destinations, it's because of its temperate tropical climate, which makes it a dream destination for yachting enthusiasts, who can discover pristine islands and seabeds, tasty cuisine and a welcome that will stay with them forever.

Your cruise on an exceptional catamaran will start in Martinique, from the marina at Le Marin, with an initial course for Béquia, skirting the fabulous coastline of Saint Lucia and its majestic Deux Pitons, which will leave travelers with unforgettable memories of the Caribbean Sea.

The day after your departure, the island of Béquia, with its 18 km2 of white sand and turquoise water, offers an authentic Caribbean landscape.

With your Catlante Catamarans crew so concerned about your comfort, you'll then head for the most beautiful and fragile coral reef in the West Indies, offering you unforgettable memories during your stopover in the Tobago Cays.

Then there's Mayreau and its unique nonchalance, Union, Canouan and St-Vincent.

Paradise truly exists, and you'll be witness to it on your Catlante Catamarans cruise in the Grenadines.

Catlante Catamarans will once again guide you on the most beautiful voyage of all: yours.

All that remains is for us to wish you "Bel bonjou" (Welcome! in Creole).
