Palm trees, rainforests and the beaches
Our programme of fly-cruises which visit the sun-kissed Caribbean are always popular. They offer the opportunity to discover rainforests, tropical wildlife, colonial cities, blue skies, sandy beaches and exotic cocktails.
SHORE WALKS AND EXCURSION HIGHLIGHTS:
Barbados - We walk through the lush tropical world of Welchman’s Hall Gully and Andromeda Gardens, Gun Hill Signal station, George Washington House and maybe enjoy a flying fish sandwich lunch at Sunbury Plantation.
