Antigua

Come join us in exploring Antigua’s winding coastline and seemingly limitless secluded powdery soft beaches. Navigate the same waters as Nelson, scuba dive and snorkel from the decks of our yachts on the same coral reefs that were once the bane of marauding enemy ships.

Antigua and its sister Island, Barbuda, lie at 17 degrees 5 minutes north latitude and 61 degrees 48 minutes west longitude. Antigua (pronounced An-tee’ga) is the largest of the English-speaking Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. To the south are the islands of Montserrat; and to the north and west are Nevis, St. Kitts, St. Barts, and St. Martin. Barbuda, about 30 miles due north of Antigua, is a largely uninhabited flat coral island. The tiny island of Redonda, a nature preserve is also part of the nation.

Like most islands of the Caribbean, Antigua benefits from a warm climate moderated by steady trade winds that make the region one of the most desirable of the world’s great sailing destinations. Because of its complex coastline, an abundance of safe harbors, and a protective nearly unbroken coral reef, one of Great Britain’s most famous admirals, Horatio Nelson, made Antigua the Royal Navy’s most important Caribbean base in 1784.

Now, more than 200 years later, the same characteristics that attracted Nelson have drawn Dream Yacht Charter this island paradise. Our base is the legendary Jolly Harbor, a full service marina that features restaurants, a supermarket, boutique shopping and more. The Dream Yacht staff will acquaint you with the island’s natural and historical landmarks. Natives like to say there are 365 distinct beaches, one for every day of the year on Antigua. We don’t know if that’s literally true, but one of the great adventures for our sailing friends would be to try and visit them all.

The capital of Antigua and its largest city is St. John’s. The baroque towers of St. John’s Cathedral dominate the city’s landscape. With a new cruise ship dock and several hotels, the capital is a lively hub for shopping and dining.
If you are interested in the early history of the island, visit the Museum of Antigua and Barbuda in the colonial Court House. You will find Arawak and colonial artifacts recovered archaeological digs on the island on display.

The heart of Antigua’s historic district is the 15 square miles that of Nelson’s Dockyard National Park. During the great age of sale, this area served as British Navy’s base and headquarters of the fleet of the Leeward Islands during the late 18th century. Greatly expanded during the time Horatio Nelson commanded, it was gradually abandoned during in the nineteenth century and was closed in 1889. Now completely restored, Nelson’s Dockyard is the only Georgian dockyard in the world.

Martynika

Martinique is one of the shining jewels of the French Caribbean. Centrally located in the heart of the Caribbean archipelago, at 14 degrees 30 minutes north latitude and 61 degrees 0 minutes west longitude, Martinique is part of the Windward Islands in the Lesser Antilles.

Christopher Columbus sighted the island on his first voyage in 1493, but didn’t land there until his fourth expedition in 1502. Martinique officially became part of France in 1815. It became a Department of France in 1946, and was named a Region of France in 1974, and that remains its status.

Martinique’s capital, Fort de France, celebrates every aspect of French culture with style and panache – from the excellence of its cuisine to the chic sophistication of its fine resorts and hotels. Shops sell the latest French merchandise; art galleries, theaters and museums all pay homage that heritage. Old men play Boules in the squares, while crowds sit at sidewalk cafés. Yet, an enticing West Indian warmth and friendliness, a special spice in its music, dance, local food and cultural roots, combine with everything French, to create a unique way of life.

Martinique offers the classic Caribbean package of flawless beaches-white sand on the south coast, black sand on the north coast. There are secluded coves perfect for swimming and snorkeling, reefs, unspoiled fishing villages, hot springs, lush rainforests, rugged peaks and exotic flowers and fruit everywhere.

The Dream Yacht Charter base at Le Marin is just a short ride from the airport. The marina is set at the end of a beautiful lagoon and includes all the facilities any sailor could need: well-stocked chandleries, a supermarket and restaurants.

The marina at Le Marin is one of the largest in the Caribbean that caters specifically to pleasure boats, and is a day sail from the Grenadines.
