Islands visited on this trip: Barbados, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Montserrat, Antigua, Barbuda, Saint Vincent, Grenada (with optional extension to Trinidad)

From the magnificent Imperial Parrots dwelling in the montane forests of Dominica and the highly threatened Grenada Dove on the "Spice Isle" of Grenada, to the last population of Whistling Warblers still surviving on the volcanic slopes of St.Vincent's La Soufriere, the Lesser Antilles is home to some of the rarest and most spectacular endemic bird species on the planet. Join Caribbean professional bird guide and Director of Birding the Islands Ltd, Ryan Chenery, on an incredible Caribbean birding adventure through the islands of the Lesser Antilles in search of every endemic, near-endemic and regional indigenous species.

Gaze out across the sparkling Caribbean Sea as you travel between islands by catamaran;

Feel the sand between your toes as you step out of beachside hotels and stroll along miles of white sandy shores;

Endemics seen, indulge in a celebratory cocktail as the sun sets on some of the most stunning coastlines in the world.

This truly is a birding trip with a difference, this is a birding trip through paradise!
