Wife and I have chartered out of Antigua and Guadeloupe and hit all those locations twice. Didn''t do much other then relax. Some changes between charter times but mostly the same. Not much on Marie Galante but very relaxing and a nice sail to Iles Des Saintes and Dominica. Iles Des Saintes great both times. Toured entire island on a moped and just relaxed on their beaches.
On Dominica at the outset was bothered by the "boatboys" or whatever you want to call them but once they did their thing they didn''t bother you. Island hard hit by the hurricane, (can''t remember which one) but geting up and running.
On Guadeloupe several nice locations, Deshais which is well protected and Pigeon Islad ( a little rough depening on the time. Problem here is it''s the west side of the island and wind is iffy. Had to motor a bit. (ugh) Pointe A Pitre is a nice spot. Alot of boats and company. Nice area to eat, shop, etc.
St. Anne & Francois are nice to visit. Anchored one night at Petite Terre. Locals party there. Rough depending on time of year. We did Oct. one year and March another.
Have fun, we are chartering out of St. Vicent in April 02.
