If your clients are looking for a holiday escape, consider the exclusive sailing yacht Sea Cloud II’s winter voyages to the Lesser Antilles. Departing from Antigua through Feb. 10, Sea Cloud II will explore the Leeward and Windward islands, home to pristine ports of call untouched by larger cruise ships.

Operating under charter by Lindblad Expeditions, Sea Cloud II combines comfortable elegance with a modern sailing experience. The vessel features 30,000 square feet of canvas sails rigged atop 20-story high masts. Sea Cloud II carries 86 guests, with accommodations that feature marble baths and gold fittings. Public areas include a sauna and fitness room, library and a sun-filled lounge overlooking the ship's forepeak.

Throughout the voyage, the Sea Cloud II’s crewmembers help guests learn navigational skills and secrets from knot-tying to the use of a sextant. Guests are also free to enjoy Lindblad's Wellness program featuring massage therapy, body treatments and fitness activities.

The Leeward Isles of the Caribbean itinerary travels from St. John's, Antigua to St. Kitts, Virgin Gorda and Anguilla. The voyage also features two full days at sea under sail. The Windward Isles of the Caribbean itinerary sails from St. John's to Bequia, Tobago, St. Lucia and Dominica, with two days under sail. Rates for the Sea Cloud II voyages range from $5,210 to $9,460, per person, double occupancy.
