SeaDream Yacht Club is capitalizing on its 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio to provide complimentary crew-led excursions for the fall and winter Caribbean season on the company’s itineraries to lesser-known islands. The veteran crew members onboard the brand’s 112-guest yachts will lead small excursion groups to their favorite spots. SeaDream’s active experiences for guests include hikes on the tiny island of Culebrita, a nature lover’s delight and part of a wildlife refuge.
This fall and winter, guests will hike to the only remaining Spanish-era structure in the Culebra archipelago, which is also the only permanent structure on the island, then to Playa Tortuga (Turtle Beach), which is named for the many sea turtles that use the beach for breeding grounds and the surrounding waters for grazing. With 10 mountain bikes onboard each ship, guests can also bike to secluded beaches, including Flamenco Beach in Culebra, secret coves in Esperanza, Shoal Bay in Anguilla and the colorful Soper’s Hole on West End Tortola. There's also a tour circumnavigating the island of Nevis or mountain biking to the bottom of the Saba island.
