Ports

  • Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

    The capital and largest city in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It has two ports of call for cruise vessels, Havensight and Crown Bay. SeaDream yachts are almost always docked at Crown Bay which is very close to the airport. In the event the yachts call to the island as a port of call rather than an embarkation point, you will find the yacht anchored in the bay and tendering downtown. The island has tons of history, beautiful beaches, a fantastic golf course and incredible shopping options.

  • White Bay, Jost van Dyke

    The BVI’s barefoot island and home of the "Painkiller" drink. Population depends on the month – typically 250-300. This is another SeaDream destination where you may be served Champagne and Caviar in the surf followed by a beach barbecue lunch. A hike is always offered to guests to visit the famous Foxy’s Bar at Great Harbour (hopefully, the boutique is open) or you can stroll a few meters down the beach to the Soggy Dollar Bar. Snorkeling equipment is provided as well as some of our water toys!

  • Gustavia

    Perhaps our most treasured destination in the Caribbean! This small island belonging to the French West Indies has so much to offer our SeaDream guests. Incredible shopping only steps away from the pier. Incredible beaches, resorts, restaurants and activities both day and night. SeaDream has created various land adventures for you to discover the island from sea or land. Ask one of the officers to take you on a hike or bike ride around the island. Another great activity here is to simply relax and watch all of the incredible yachts arriving and departing just off your SeaDream yacht.

  • Falmouth Bay

    Falmouth Bay is a short walk from Nelson's Dockyard and the English Harbour. Historic buildings and mills surround it. This harbor and the quiet village has plenty of shops, restaurants and the yacht club. Historic sites, tasty cuisine and a lively cultural scene can all be found on Antigua. But most often it's the beauty and versatility of the island's 365 beaches that draw travelers from afar. Land Adventure possibilities include a helicopter ride over Montserrat, a jeep and snorkel safari and a St. John’s City and shopping exploration.

  • Terre De Haut, Illes de Saintes

    If you’re looking for a small part of France in the heart of Guadeloupe, Terre de Haut is your go-to. Being the largest of the eight small islands that make up Les Saintes, Terre de Haut is a charming and scenic village rich with red-roofed houses and accompanying gardens of flourishing Hibiscus. Known for its robust reefs and great underwater visibility, Terre de Haut has also become a favorite among divers.

  • Little Bay

    Prior to the recent volcanic eruptions that commenced in 1995, Montserrat was considered as one of the “Insiders” favorite Caribbean islands. It was also home to producer George Martin’s Air Studios Montserrat recording studio where some of the world’s most famous recording artists, including Eric Clapton, the Little River Band and Paul McCartney among many others, used to record their albums. Recent history has brought some unfortunate blows to the island ranging from hurricanes (Hugo in 1989) to multiple volcanic eruptions. Yet, in the face of such unfortunate setbacks, Montserrat remains an island worth visiting and its people, as friendly and warm as ever, are trying hard to bring back the economic viability of the island. Just imagine an island where almost two- thirds of its surface space is no longer available to agriculture or habitation; an island whose lovely capital city of Plymouth was destroyed by the volcanic eruptions and mudslides. A population that went from a high of 13,000 inhabitants to as low as 3,000 shortly after the first eruptions. Fortunately, more and more of the former residents are returning to the island and are trying to make a living off tourism once again. We at SEADREAM would like to assist them in this effort by making frequent visits to the island. We thus encourage you to take the time and join us on an interesting land adventure exploring the unique landscape of Montserrat.

  • Chrishi Beach Club, Nevis

    Chrishi Beach Club is the most popular restaurant and club at the sandiest shores of Cades Bay & Nevis. The seaside sunny lunch and fine evening dining restaurant form a part of the first phase of the luxury development, Zenith Nevis. As the property development starts to take shape on the 6.5 acres stretch of private beach, visitors and guests are already able to take advantage of the carefree hospitality pledged at Chrishi Beach Club.

  • Philipsburg

    Philipsburg is the main town on the Dutch side of St. Maarten. The town is situated on a narrow stretch of land between Great Bay and the Great Salt Pond. Philipsburg was founded in 1763 by John Philips, a Scottish captain in the Dutch navy. The settlement soon became a center for international trade. The main shopping district is located on Front Street and is in the heart of the city. Many consider Philipsburg to be the best shopping opportunity in the Caribbean. Depending on the traffic, SeaDream has the option to anchor or dock alongside. One of the highlight activities may be to participate in the America’s Cup 12 Metre Regatta.

  • Little Bay - Pompeii of the Caribbean

    Description

    See the “active” Soufriere Hills Volcano on Montserrat from Plymouth port and learn why it may be called the Pompeii of the Caribbean. No visitor to Montserrat should leave without having an encounter with Montserrat’s most captivating phenomena.

    On July 18, 1995, the volcano, dormant for four centuries, spewed 20 feet of ash over the southern coast. A series of eruptions eventually caused fast-moving cascades of hot gas and rock that buried the once thriving city of Plymouth. Life, as it was, for Montserrat’s 12,000 residents changed forever.

    On this excursion you will travel to Jack Boy Hill where you can see the volcano and remnants of WH Bramble Airport now completely buried by volcanic lava flows. Then its on to a lookout point over Plymouth, which is located in what's called the Exclusion Zone, or Zone V; because this area sits in the path of the greatest current volcanic activity and there is limited public access.

    As you make the way to Plymouth you will pass through small villages and stop in Woodlands for a brief moment at Runaway Ghuat. This is a natural Spring that local myth claims you must drink from this Spring if you want to return to Montserrat. Before entering Plymouth you will have a brief “bird’s eye” view stop at Montserrat Springs; a once proud 4-star hotel. In Plymouth, Safety Officer Norman will show you pictures of former life in Plymouth as you walk past and on top of the buried buildings.Be sure to bring your camera to record this live volcano experience and how the community was buried just like Pompeii.
