These filters can help you find the best charter for you or allow you to see different options depending on what will suit your specific travel plans bes.
Weekly boat charters
Sailo offers weekly yacht charters in Guadeloupe, which will give you the opportunity to explore the Caribbean islands and check off everything on your bucket list while you’re visiting. We always recommend sailing in the Caribbean for at least a week so that you can truly experience everything this part of the world has to offer, from the culture and atmosphere of every port to the memorable sea life and white sand beaches.
Trust us -- rent a boat for a week and you’ll be planning your next sailing vacation in no time.
One of the benefits of weekly rentals is the ability to reserve for free. When you select a weekly Guadeloupe yacht charter, you have the option of reserving a boat, modifying the reservation, and even cancelling if it isn’t the right fit, all within a 24-hour grace period when you don’t need to submit your credit card information. This allows you to communicate via email with the boat representative and your travel party to make sure the rental is the ideal option for your sailing vacation.
One-week sailing itinerary
For anyone visiting Guadeloupe for the first time -- or renting a boat for the first time -- we put together this helpful one-week itinerary to help you navigate the Caribbean islands. Remember that you can rent a boat with a captain or book a bareboat yacht charter in Guadeloupe depending on your experience, and your boat representative can help by offering their tips and expertise before you arrive on the island.
Begin your first day by arriving at Marina Bas du Fort. This is less than a half hour from the airport (remember - for some of our rentals you can add airport transportation to your Guadeloupe yacht charter, if needed!). After embarking on your sailing journey, set course to Ilet a Gosier. This small island is a picture of paradise, with reefs perfect for snorkeling and white sandy beaches that look right off a postcast.
On the next day and the days following, we suggest planning to stop at Marie-Galante to experience Caribbean culture and amazing swimming; Portsmouth, Dominica to tour the Indian River and relax; Les Saintes for some island exploring and a visit to Fort Napoleon; and Basse Terre, where you can take in the local scenery and enjoy your last day at sea. Finally, return back to Marina Bas du Fort and return your Guadeloupe yacht charter before exploring the island on land.
What to do on land
There’s plenty to do in Guadeloupe that you’ll want to make sure you allow yourself at least a couple of days to explore the island. No matter what, take advantage of the delicious Creole cuisine and the sounds of local music -- we suggest having dinner outside and exploring the local shops before or after your meal.
