  • 7TradeWinds offers our Members a world of benefits on both land and sea. Our internal currency TradeWinds Plus Points (PP) provides total flexibility. With PP, Members can now book whenever they want, for as long as they want. Some Members may only wish to book a single cabin once in a while; others might sail with their family and friends for weeks at a time.

    As an added benefit for our Mem-bers who want to round out their vacations with pre- or post-stays, or maybe even stay on land now and again, your PP can also be used with our luxury hotel, villa and re-sort partners around the globe.

    All we ask as you step on board your catamaran is that you remove your shoes and leave your worries behind! After that, leave everything to us. Savour gourmet meals made with healthy fresh produce purchased at local ports of call. Enjoy our carefully curated selection of fine wines. Sip on tropical cocktails while watching the sun slip over the horizon at dusk.

    With TradeWinds, your meals and drinks are included, so you can truly relax and get the most from your time at sea.

    Please note that you must be a certified diver in order to scuba dive.

    SCUBA DIVINGOne of the great benefits of becoming a Member is TradeWinds passion for diving. Our itineraries take you to some of the finest underwater environments on the planet. Your Captain or First Mate will act as your

    Dive Master, and all you have to do is step off the yacht to your dive site.

    Get wet, safely, with TradeWinds.

    KAYAKING AND STAND UP PADDLINGOur catamarans come equipped with steady ocean kayaks, giving our guests ac-cess to secluded and hidden stretches of coastline.

    Take some drinks and relax in a secluded cove with a loved one, or go for an ener-getic paddle while exploring the coast.

    Onboard our Luxury and Flagship Class yachts, you can also enjoy stand up pad-dling, as SUP-boards are available for the enjoyment and fun of all guests.

    SNORKELINGOne of the great joys of sailing is not what you can see above the waves, but what you can see below. Snorkeling opens up a wondrous undersea world reefs teeming

    with marine life, exotic species of fish, and brilliant fan corals swaying gently in the current.

    All TradeWinds vessels come equipped with complimentary snorkeling gear for our guests, and you do not need to be a certified diver to enjoy this exciting activity.

    Experience the thrill of the catch while on board your catamaran. We have fishing equipment so you can try your luck at anchor or while sailing.

    FISHINGThere is nothing quite like a just-caught fish, fresh from the sea and grilled on board on our barbeque or you may even ask the chef to prepare some ultra-fresh sashimi.

    HIKING AND BEACH COMBINGTradeWinds itineraries include a variety of opportunities to explore on land as well as at sea. Many of our destinations offer incredible hiking trails, some which lead high into the hills for breathtaking views,

    others into small villages, giving you the chance to connect with locals. Jog along a deserted beach, practice yoga by the sea, or hunt for shells and feel the sand beneath your feet.


    Just ask your Captain to steer you in the right direction, go ashore and explore.
