Program Description:
SM Logo with tag   Ocean Star
Virgin Islands to Antigua
20 Days aboard S/Y Ocean Star

  • Academic courses (3 credits): basic seamanship
  • 360 Nautical Miles via Nevis, St. Barts, Statia, Saba

Explore above the surface and find lush islands, ancient volcanoes and white sand beaches. Sail on the legendary blue-green waves and take in jade mountains against iridescent sunrises and sunsets. Each of the 25 islands within the Leeward Islands offers a distinct cultural and geographic backdrop, so you'll sail throughout the island chain–visiting Saba, St. Eustatius, Nevis, Antigua, St. Barts and the British Virgin Islands. Along the way, you'll also score 3 credit hours in basic seamanship, but who's counting?
