Kite Surfari (www.kite-surfari.com) was born in Margarita, Venezuela when ‘Captain Rik’ was teaching kitesurfing and living aboard his 47 ft sailing yacht ‘Dakunha’. The trips started out with kitesurfing daysails from Margarita to the nearby islands of Coche and Cubagua. The success of these day excursions quickly led to longer adventures to the islands of Tortuga and Los Roques which boast some of the best kiteboarding spots in the Caribbean.
In 2011, due to the increasing security issues and instability in Venezuela, Kite-surfari decided to relocated its operations to the safer eastern Caribbean islands of the Grenadines, the Virgin Islands and Antigua & Barbuda. As a result Kite Surfari created its new brand ‘Caribbean Kite Cruise’ (www.caribbeankitecruise.com). Today Caribbean Kite Cruise has expanded its fleet to 3 privately owned catamarans and is based in union Island in the heart of the Grenadines.
At the time of writing we have just finished a great 2019 season and continue to be the Caribbean’s leading kite cruise specialist. The winds have been great all year and we’ve had the pleasure of making new friends from all corners of the world. Due to popular demand we will soon be offering a spectacular new destination for our kiteboarding charters. Watch this space…
Captain Rik is originally from the UK but has spent the last 25 years living in warmer climates and following his passion for watersports and the sea. Previously a windsurf and kite instructor he continues to cruise the Caribbean in search of the best kite destinations.
Thanks for a truly Unforgettable trip! My first time on a catamaran… and hopefully not the last…
This is my second time doing a kite cruise with Richard and his crew. I would have rated this 10 stars if I could!
We had an epic time with my friends sailing from Greneda to Union and then around. The scenery is straight out of the Pirates of the Caribbean, and so are the good times we’ve had.
Kite spots are cool, food was AMAZING (thank you Danny, you are the best!), captain was cool (thank you Alessio!) and thanks Richard for hanging out with us.
I will never forget this trip and I’ve already been highly recommending it to everyone I know.
One of my best vacations ever !
Since we decided to take the trip , Flore helped us on all travel arrangements.
What else you can ask ! Sailing , Kitesurfing , healthy food and always to help us , the captain Vincent, the cook Danny and instructor Adrian.
Don’t miss it , life goes by …..
