Bucket List Trip

Anyone who knows us personally has heard us talk about chartering a catamaran in the Caribbean one day.

In the past we had technical issues that delayed our bucket list trip, namely a little boy named Murray. This year our “technical issue” has been resolved as Murray is 4 years old, swims like a fish, and understands the inherit danger of jumping off a moving boat (we hope).

Chic Family Travels is chartering Ocean View Catamaran for a sailing trip through the Windward Islands over the Mardis Gras school holiday. Here is a sneak peek of our Grenadines sailing itinerary and the catamaran that will take us from port to port.

We decided to sail through the Grenadines in lieu of the British Virgin Islands because it was less expensive to fly into St. Lucia, and we have not visited most of the islands in the Grenadines chain. We are sailing from St. Lucia to Grenada, with numerous stops along the way. We are most excited about visiting the Tobago Cays, and swimming with the turtles.

Here is a sneak peek at our floating home named Ocean View, a 2014 62 Lagoon Catamaran. Pinch me!!! I have no shame in my obnoxious excitement about our upcoming Bucket List Trip!!

I don’t even know why I included this picture, because I will happily not be cooking a single meal on this trip. Our captain and hostess will be treating Mom to a week off kitchen duty!

      Hello Eric,

      The Grenadines are less visited than the BVI’s and thus there are less restaurants, bars and that sort of thing. The positive side of this is that everything is less crowded, and we also think the snorkeling and diving is better.

      The Grenadines are more difficult to get to because it often requires a flight into a small airport such as St. Vincent. The islands with larger airports like St. Lucia do not have a ferry service to the Grenadines. Also, there is a much larger distance between the islands in the Grenadine chain than the BVI.

      Both areas are equally beautiful and stunning!

    Can’t wait to see the photos and live vicariously through your catamaran trip! I’ve not been on one myself, but would love to do so one day, perhaps I’ll have to draw up a bucket list too so I can ensure it happens! Congrats on getting to go with the family, I’m sure you’re all going to have a beautiful time out there.
