The Caribbean Sea is blessed with a number of Islands, which means that no matter which direction you choose to go, you will soon encounter an island that holds its own beauty, its own history, story and attraction. Aboard a yacht, and depending upon where you wish to start your tour, you can tour the Caribbean from most directions. This particular sailing expedition is focusing on a journey from Florida, USA to the Bahamas, then on to St Kitts and Nevis. A visit to some islands on the Caribbean brought a sense of wonder.
The yacht sail to the Bahamas brought us to one of the most famous islands on the Caribbean. The Bahamas comes packaged with both white sand beaches and pink beaches, with the backdrop of clear blue waters. On the waters are playful dolphins that will take your breath away as well as Flamingo colonies that paint the horizon pink. With nearby bays such as Elbow, Great Guana and Green Turtle, a stop on the island is indeed worthwhile.
Next stop is Turks & Caicos, where marine live is thriving in great proportions, perhaps due to the fact that over 30% of the island is protected by park or preserve status. This has resulted in an abundance of turtles, huge schools of jacks and spotted eagle rays. You can also enjoy a sort of fishing and bird watching while on the island. Next the yacht moves on to Haiti and Dominican Republic. Haiti holds a fascination of castles, history, art, music, architecture and spiritual traditions which never fail to entrance visitors. Haiti shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic, which is home to stunning waterfalls, underwater pinnacles, geothermal vents, a boiling lake and rare parrots. If adventure is what you seek, then the Dominican Republic is just for you, with a rich culture and history. It has a thriving rainforest, rare orchids and colorful birds as well as hundreds of rivers that cascade dramatically into waterfalls. With over 22 species of dolphins and whales, the Dominican waters attract a number of visitors to come whale watch all year round.
