Embark on an enriching journey through the British Virgin Islands and French-infused St. Barths. Begin in Dutch-infused Sint Maarten before sailing through the British Virgin Islands—where you are met by Beef Island’s white-sand beaches and unspoiled nature; Sint Marteen’s snorkeler’s paradise of Simpson Bay; and the vibrant coral reefs and fascinating flora and fauna of Anguilla’s Sandy Ground. Overnight in chic St. Barths, the jetsetter’s Caribbean playground. Swim in Tortola’s Soper’s Hole and explore the hidden bays and water-level caves of Norman Island. Let time stand still in Prickly Pear, an uninhabited national-park island on the North Sound of Virgin Gorda, fringed by spectacular coral reefs. Your journey ends where it began, so may explore more of Sint Maarten’s lively capital, Philipsburg.

Ports

  • 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.

  • Long Bay, Beef Island

    Long Bay’s signature image is one of long stretches of white sand, alluring turquoise waters, and gorgeous shorelines. Enjoy the best of these scenic spots with water experiences like kayaking, snorkeling, diving, and even sailing. With such breathtaking views of its unspoiled nature, you’ll be surprised at how long you can manage to lounge under the sun and simply stare at the gorgeous landscape right in front of you.

  • Simpson Bay

  • Sandy Ground

    This British Overseas Territory is becoming more popular due to the incredible resort options as well as world recognized beaches and amazing golf. SeaDream offers an opportunity to tee off, swim with dolphins or for the energetic, bike around the island with the Captain or Club Director. Naturally, we will also offer water sports while we are anchored off Sandy Ground.

  • 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.

  • Soper's Hole, Tortola

    This marina on Tortola's West End retained its quaint charm while being a center of activity and voted the best marina in the BVIs. Soper's Hole imparts a great sense of place and physical intimacy and is considered one of the most picturesque marinas in the Caribbean. SeaDream is offering several land adventures including, snorkeling, scuba diving, land rover safari and swimming with the dolphins. For guests wanting some extra activity, ask the Captain or Club Director to set up a bike ride to Road Town along the coastal road. For guests wanting to simply shop or explore the marina, we suggest checking out Pusser’s Landing along with the cute boutiques.

  • Norman Island

    Norman Island is located at the southern tip of the British Virgin Islands. It could very well be the very same island reputed to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate novel Treasure Island. It is said that the island was named after a pirate who purchased it at some point during the early 18th century. The island is uninhabited and privately owned by Dr Henry Jarecki. Its area is about 600 acres (2.4 km²), and it is about 2.5 miles (4 km) long. A large harbor is known as "The Bight" offers one of the most protected anchorages in the area. Guests will enjoy some great hiking opportunities as well as snorkeling and scuba diving. Another attractive option may be to check out the Willie T that is generally anchored in the harbor or simply have a beverage at the Pirates Bight Bar.

  • Prickly Pear, B.V.I

    A stunning island situated in the North Sound of Virgin Gorda and got its name because of the large flowering cactus all over the island. The island was declared a National Park in 1988 meaning the 180 acres will have no further development, just an island filled with natural beauty. Breathtaking hiking trails start from the main beach Vixen Point, winds around the island filled with salt ponds heading to the north shore which has two other amazing secluded beaches.
