Just north of St. Martin, and an easy day trip, the island often attracts the rich

vacationer’s dream, with secluded beaches of powder-soft sand and legendary warm winds that reward it with low humidity year-round. You could go to a different beach every single day of the year on this island, ranging from ones bustling with activity to others so private you’ll have them all to yourself. There’s even a clothing-optional beach called Eden in Hawksbill for when you’re ready to go au naturel.

The largest Charter Yacht Show in the world is also held here every year. • Snorkeling & Scuba Diving: Large coral reefs and the remnants of sunken ships make this a fantastic place to explore the thriving world that exists under the sea. • Windsurfing: The steady climate and warm winds averaging 12-18 knots are ideal for both experts and beginners to enjoy the sport.

ANTIGUA: SIGHTSEEING

Extreme Circumnavigation

Deep Sea Sport Fishing

St. Johns / 6.5 Hours / Island Routes Visit the secret spots of Antigua’s North Sound, a large unspoiled area off the mainland of 22 little islands, countless reefs, flats, and mangrove nurseries – truly off the beaten track. Taken by catamaran, you always stay within the calm protected areas and never venture into the rough Atlantic. Stop for snorkeling, caving, a small hike, swimming, and lots of sightseeing. Refreshments and a delicious lunch complement your tour.

St. Johns / 6.5 Hours / Island Routes This exhilarating adventure takes you right around Antigua’s rugged 365-beach coastline in a 45’ offshore racing boat especially designed for this excursion. There’s a high-speed run through the islands of the North Sound and a swim with the southern rays at Stingray City Marine Park. A buffet lunch at Green Island is followed by a cruise around Nelson’s Dockyard. Finally, snorkel at the Pillars of Hercules, and unwind on the secluded beach at Rendezvous Bay.

St. Johns / 4 Hours / Island Routes Head out onto the open waters off the coast of Antigua, renowned as one of the most thrilling fishing grounds in the entire Caribbean. Now you can brag about your own amazing catch, as you take advantage of the 31’ Betram fishing boat, arguably the world’s best fishing platform. Hop aboard with the expertise of the captain and crew, who know the very best spots to catch Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Dolphin, (Mahi Mahi), Tuna, and Sailfish, just to name a few.

Cades Reef – Sail & Snorkeling from Antigua

Lovers Rock Sunset Cruise from Antigua

Island Safari & Stringray City

St. Johns / 6 Hours / Island Routes Enjoy a relaxing Caribbean experience aboard the sailing catamaran Mystic, cruising down the south coast to Cades Reef to snorkel Antigua’s largest reef formation. After snorkeling, enjoy a fresh BBQ lunch. Next, you’ll anchor at a secluded bay and swim in the turquoise water or just bask in the sun while the crew brings you drinks. After beach time, sail north along the west coast with the music turned up and the bar open! The beaches chosen will depend upon sea conditions.

Long Bay / 2.5 Hours / Island Routes Board the catamaran Mystic for a one-of-a-kind tropical sunset cruise. You’ll be greeted with a cocktail from the open bar, presented by one of our charming crew members. Lounge on the sundeck, or find a cozy little spot for you and that special someone while you cruise down the west coast of the island and enjoy mesmerizing views of the beautiful orange and pink sunset. Sip drinks and enjoy flavorful hors d’oeuvres, sit back and relax, or dance to romantic Caribbean rhythms.

20

Eco-Tour Adventure

St. Johns / 5 Hours / Island Routes This tour begins in an off-road 4x4 to Antigua’s North Coast, passing through the scenic countryside and historic sites including Betty’s Hope Plantation. A boat ride then takes you past the uninhabited islands and blue waters of the North Sound to Stingray City, where adventurers will have an opportunity to feed, pet, snorkel, and swim with rays as many other colorful fish pass by.

Bahamas

Approximate Flight Times:

The Bahamas isn’t just one place. With 700 islands and 2,400 cays, it’s many and diverse!

New York/Newark 3 hours Philadelphia 3 hours Boston 3 hours Chicago 3½ hours Miami 1 hour Los Angeles 6 hours (some flights may require connections)

Nassau, the capital city, and Paradise Island bustle with hotels, shops, casinos, and an aquarium,

Entry/Departure Requirements: A valid US passport is required. The departure tax is US-$15.00 throughout The Bahamas.

while The Berry Islands have miles of secluded beaches and undisturbed dive sites. There’s a seemingly endless supply of ideal beaches too. The Abacos offer long stretches of white sand and tall dunes. The Exumas have shallow, clear waters with great snorkeling, and Grand Bahama has 90 miles of reef-protected coastline. And The Bahamas is also devoted to ecotourism, protecting the third-largest fringing barrier reef in the world and countless nature preserves.

BEST FOR… • Shopping: Freshly harvested sponges, wood carvings, batik, an international bazaar, and many locally made handicrafts add up to a shopper’s paradise. • Fishing: More than 50 world fishing records have been set in The Bahamas, so whether you are a big game, deep sea, fly, or reef fishing fan, this is the place. • Family Fun: Camping safaris, kid camps, and surfing lessons are just a few of the reasons that The Bahamas are a great place to travel with kids.

world away… The capital city of Hamilton looks as though it popped out of a postcard. Well-manicured lawns, refined manners, and its famed “Bermuda shorts” are all nods to the Atlantic island’s British past. Upscale galleries, restaurants, and shops selling crystal, cashmere, and china can be found throughout the island.

At West Whale Bay Beach, you may actually see humpback whales migrating north to their summer feeding grounds. • Golf: Many of the amazing courses here were designed by pros like renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. and offer incredible views of the ocean below. • Dining: Of course you’ll find amazing seafood dishes in Bermuda, but there are also top-notch British, French, Italian, Portuguese, American, Caribbean, Indian, Chinese, and Thai restaurants as well.

path spot with only about 1,800 residents and a lovely rugged charm. Little Cayman is tranquil and the ideal island getaway spot. There is literally something for everyone here; families, couples, sports enthusiasts, and divers. In fact, Little Cayman’s Bloody Bay Marine Park is one of the world’s legendary dive sites, with a sheer coral wall begins at 20 ft. and plunges to 6,000 ft.

Atlantis Submarine Expedition

1.5 Hours Enjoy a 5 minute boat ride to the submarine where you will view the wonders of Grand Cayman’s fascinating underwater park at 100 feet below the water’s surface aboard the Atlantis submarine. Keep your eyes open for barrel sponges, star corals, and you may even see a turtle or a stingray!

Grand Cayman / 2.5 Hours / Tropicana Tours Join a memorable coach tour along the West Bay peninsula. After a brief stop at the Governor’s Residence on Seven Mile Beach, visit the world’s only green sea turtle farm; you can even pick up a turtle for a photograph. The next stop is a visit to Hell, named for its unusual rock formations and a favorite stop to mail postcards postmarked from Hell. Then, visit the Tortuga Rum Shoppe and taste the Caribbean’s original famous rum cakes and Tortuga duty-free liquors.

Grand Cayman / 2 Hours / Atlantis Submarines Experience the thrill of journeying beneath the sea in a real submarine onboard the Atlantis XI to Grand Cayman’s Underwater Marine Park. Witness a panorama of breathtaking underwater vistas at depths of 100 feet, while your guide (and co-pilot) provides a wealth of knowledge in an entertaining narration. Huge barrel sponges and star corals abound in the reef while colorful snappers and groupers, even the occasional stingray and turtle, may pass within a few feet of your large view-port.

everything this lovely island has to offer. First, the beaches are simply beautiful. Grand Anse is a popular spot with both tourists and locals, but there are also plenty of quiet romantic spots if you need a bit more seclusion. La Sagesse, Bathway, and Levera Beach are great for undisturbed R&R. And whether it’s fine dining or a casual bistro lunch, there dozens of great restaurants to enjoy a delicious meal with a romantic view of the sea.

BEST FOR… • Exploring Nature: Trekking through a dense rainforest to discover a spectacular waterfall or standing near the mouth of a dormant volcano are just a few of the many ways to enjoy the outdoors on the island. • Sport Fishing: Anglers flock to Grenada for the Annual Spice Isle Billfish Tournament, and fishermen of every skill level can find memorable excursions in search of “the big one.” • Water Sports: From snorkeling with knowledgeable guides, conservation-driven kayak trips, or an eco-powerboat tour, there is so much to enjoy in and around the island’s tranquil waters.

Grenada law requires residency on the island for a minimum of 3 days before applying for a license, after which an application is made in person at the Office of the Prime Minister. Generally the license is ready within 2 working days. Valid passports, birth certificates, and divorce/death certificates (if applicable) are required. Fees total approximately ECD$32.00.

Even though the country is a hotspot for tourists, there are still little quiet corners to explore like the lush Blue Mountains or Cockpit Country, which has been described as one of the most untouched areas in the West Indies.

JAMAICA: SIGHTSEEING

Deep Sea Fishing

Mystic Mountain

Ocho Rios-Montego Bay / Half-Day / Jamaica Tours Ltd. Step aboard the 65-ft. Chukka Cat and experience the Caribbean at its finest. Along the way, take a dip in the warm Caribbean waters or snorkel and explore the reefs. We’ll stop at the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls, where you’ll have the opportunity to climb the 600-ft. natural cascading waterfall. After the falls, get back on the catamaran for a Rum Punch party. Feel the rhythm of Jamaican music, and learn dance moves on the fun-filled return trip. Lunch is included.

Ocho Rios / 4 Hours / Island Routes The very best in deep sea sport fishing beckons off the coast of Jamaica, renowned as one of the most thrilling fishing grounds in the Caribbean. Take advantage of our unbelievable fleet of customized fishing boats, including a 46’ Hatteras and a 31’ Betram. Our captain and crew know the best spots to catch Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Tuna, and Sailfish, just to name a few. The sun is shining, the drinks are icy, and the fish are biting!

Ocho Rios Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios takes you all the way from the seashore to 700 feet above sea level at the top of the mountain, stretching over 100 acres. The rainforest tour lets you indulge in an up-close and personal visit with a fascinating ecosystem and gives you the chance to let your inner thrill-seeker take charge on exhilarating activities like the Sky Explorer, the Bobsled Ride, the Canopy Zip Line, and the unique Mystic Waterslide.

River Bumpkin Tubing

Island Routes Reggae Catamaran Cruise

Dunn’s River Falls

Ocho Rios / 2.5 Hours / Island Routes This unforgettable adventure starts with a short jitney ride that takes you directly to the water’s edge, where you will board your tube. As you navigate the peaceful river, your guide will show you the ropes and introduce you to a seldom-seen side of Jamaica. Be on the lookout for exotic, indigenous animals living in this luscious tropical habitat.

Ocho Rios / 3 Hours / Island Routes Sway to the sounds of reggae on one of the Caribbean’s most wet’n’wild adventures! Indulge in delectable appetizers and unlimited exotic cocktails while enjoying the best panoramic views you’ll ever set your eyes on. There’s nothing quite like this “club on water” to feel the pulse of the island and see the wonders of the Caribbean. Snorkeling is included. Highlighted locales include Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville (Montego Bay) and Rick’s Café (Negril).

2.5 Hours Enjoy a leisurely ride along the scenic north coast to Ocho Rios, Jamaica while passing through the historical town of Falmouth with its impressive Georgian-style houses. Experience the challenge of climbing 600ft. of cascading waterfalls, easily one of the most heartstopping attractions.

Horseback Ride ‘N’ Swim

Martha Brae Rafting

Spirit of Reggae

4 Hours Saddle up for a spectacular ride through a tropical rainforest and the Jamaican countryside. Ride along a cliff for a panoramic view of the coastline with a picturesque mountain as backdrop. Your ride will also bring you to water’s edge where you can experience the warmth of the Caribbean on horseback. (Available from Ocho Rios & Negril)

5.5 Hours Take an exhilarating river ride on a 30-foot bamboo raft and be captivated by the intriguing legend of Martha’s Gold hidden away in a mysterious cave yet to be discovered. The 3-mile raft-ride, piloted by a trained Raft Captain, releaxes your mind and body as it renews your spirit.

8 Hours The legend of Bob Marley comes alive as you walk through the village of Nine Miles, his birthplace and final resting place. Feel the spirit of the King of Reggae Music as you are expertly guided through the very house that Marley lived in as a young boy.

Puerto Rico is a mix of American, Spanish, and native cultures that create a place completely unlike any other in the Caribbean.

BEST FOR… • History: Columbus landed here in 1493, and the country’s first governor was Juan Ponce de Leon, who continued to search for the Fountain of Youth here. Old San Juan is filled with reminders of the colonial past, with two fortresses and many museums recalling the country’s colorful history. • Nature: Aside from beautiful beaches, Puerto Rico has so many ways to explore the outdoors, from hiking the slopes of Sierra de Luquillo in El Yunque National Forest for spectacular views, to seeing the bioluminescent bay create a natural neon light show on Vieques. • Surfing: The beach towns of Rincón and nearby Playa Jobos are paradise for surfers of every ability level.

Both parties must appear at the City Court office to purchase a marriage license. Blood tests, photo ID, and divorce/death certificates (if applicable) are required. A medical certificate and VRDL blood test, both from a physician in Puerto Rico, are needed. The couple must visit the Marriage License Bureau to authenticate all documents.

Best of St. Lucia

Hike the Pitons

3 Hours It’s double the fun when you’re sharing an ATV built for two! Experience Saint Lucia’s incredible beauty as expert guides escort you along the rugged elegance of the wild Atlantic coastline, where you may also have a chance to spot wild donkeys, colorful tropical birds, and possibly a migrating whale. A majestic secluded beach offers the chance for a swim, explore the unspoiled surroundings, or simply enjoy the beauty of untouched nature and a perfect photo op.

4 Hours Join a hands-on cultural exploration and visit the village of Fond Assau, where locals teach the old traditions and guests collect honey from beehives, catch crayfish, and learn how to make bread. Saint Lucian folk music accompanies an authentic wood sawing demonstration – and, of course, dancing! Next, visit Castries to learn about its rich history, then become an eco-venturer at Our Planet, where jaw-dropping technology promotes environmental conservation.

5.5 Hours Towering nearly 3,000 feet above sea level, the majestic Twin Piton mountains dominate the western coast of St Lucia. A visit to the Pitons is decidedly one of the things you must do in your lifetime. Snaking up the misty, jungle-covered, boulder-strewn mountainside for the views from the top is an experience well worth the hike. Afterwards, head to a rest stop for a sumptuous lunch of local delicacies and a refreshing swim in the majestic Caribbean Sea.

The adventure continues with a catamaran journey along the coast, which includes a snorkeling experience.

Snuba Tour

Tropical Jeep Safari

Volcano Highlight Tour

1.5 Hours Experience the thrill of scuba with the ease of snorkeling on an Island Routes snuba adventure. Now you can relax and enjoy the fun of breathing underwater without the heavy equipment. Swim as deep as 20 feet in the sea’s “life-zone” for an up-close look at the diverse and colorful sea life in Saint Lucia’s crystal-clear waters.

4.5 Hours Discover St. Lucia’s exquisite beauty on this excursion. Tour in an open-top safari Jeep through historic Castries and up the Morne for panoramic views. Leave “modern civilization” for a journey through the countryside to the quaint fishing village of Anse La Raye, and take a hike through the rainforest past undulating rivers and cascading waterfalls. Sample juicy local fruit, relax in a refreshing river pool, and, on your ride home, enjoy chilled sodas and beers.

Full Day This fascinating tour is a one-of-a kind experience that takes you to an active volcano that you can actually drive into! You’ll first travel through charming fishing villages of Anse la Raye and Canaries and then head to the banana plantations. You’ll arrive at Soufriere, the old capital of St. Lucia and visit the world-famous Drive-In Volcano at Sulphur Springs. On your way back, prepare for plenty of photo opportunities of Marigot Bay.

the chain, but island-hopping here is a breeze. Clean white-sand beaches and clear blue waters can be spotted in every direction, but there is also so much to see beyond the coastline. For example, at Layou on the west coast, you can see the Carib Rock, with a human face carving that dates from A.D. 600.

BEST BEACHES FOR… • Yachting: Warm trade winds and always having an island in sight make it easy to explore protected cays and natural anchorages by sea. • Eco Adventures: The oldest botanic gardens in the Western Hemisphere are here, along with an active volcano. There is hiking, biking, and bird, turtle, and dolphin watching for diversion. And don’t miss a trip to the Owia Salt Pond, which is like taking a swim in an aquarium! • Diving: Whether it’s swimming with turtles or exploring the shipwrecks in the famous Bat Cave, the sheltered lagoons and coral reefs along the coast are a divers paradise.

Marriage Requirements: Couples wishing to be married must be resident for at least one day before a marriage ceremony (civil or church) can take place. A special 3-month license can be obtained from the Ministry of Justice. Passports, birth certificates, and divorce/death certificates (if applicable) are required. There are mandatory fees of up to US-$193.00.
