West Indies 2025 Tour Intro

For an exceptionally long time, the West Indies has been a preferred Australian Cricket Tour for many. We get more enquiries about the next Australian Cricket Tour to the West Indies than most other nations, and rightly so.

Crystal blue waters, open-air parties, boat trips, rum shacks, palm trees, barbeques, music, seafood, silky sands, fishing, diving, hiking, waterfalls, forests, colour, cricket, and fun.

Almost anything goes in the West Indies, though we don't deny that life at the game is on life-support compared to the life-changing series that were our Australian Cricket Tours to the West Indies 1995, 1999, and 2003.

Those 3 tours is what brings many cricket lovers to say, 'I want to do a tour of the West Indies', but we don't pretend that touring the islands has changed, and is little like it was.

The ICC ruined what we know as cricket in the West Indies with their Cricket World Cup 2007.

Unnecessary large and characterless venues sucked the passion, heart, and purpose out of life at the game, and Caribbean cricket has not been the same since.

What we didn't lose were the people that make touring the West Indies as special as Australia winning the Frank Worrell Trophy!

West Indians may not embrace cricket in their numbers as before, but they're still there, rum-punching through their days and nights!

We'll be there, and hopefully with you too, especially not knowing when the next West Indies Tour after 2025 will be.

    30 Years Anniversary Tour

    June-July 2025 will be 10 years between West Indian rum punches, our previous a swift 2 Test soiree in June 2015 visiting both Dominica and Jamaica, yet again!

    After such a long break, we are dead-keen to get back; especially being our 30 Years Anniversary Tour.

    We first dipped toes in Caribbean waters in 1995 on what was to be a 'one-off' tour before continuing 'life at home'.

    Thankfully, it wasn't to be, and when we return in 2025 we'll have seen close to 250 Australian Test Matches in every test nation Australia has competed.

    West Indies 2025 will be our 11th trip to the islands and the anticipation is huge.

    Not only for us, but others that toured in 1995, family, friends, and even past players who have envied our cricket touring, will finally tour with us.

    The number of people already booked is enough to know this will be a grand trip. If you haven't yet, add your name to our ever-growing list and help us celebrate 30 years of watching of Australian Cricket, where it all began!

    Schedule To Be Confirmed

    • St Maarten
    • 1st Test
    • 2nd Test
    • Add-On Island
    • 3rd Test (TBC)
    • 3 ODI's
    • 3 T20's
    • Add-On Island

    Waiting 10 years for Australia to return the West Indies means this is a tour that you should prepare to do in its entirety; make up for lost time, let's say.

    We'll be there from first to last ball. 2-3 Tests, 6 white-balls, St Maarten (SXM) to start, and another island to finish.

    SXM is the world's smallest land mass shared by 2 nations. We'll have 5 nights in 'France and Holland', with 3 more nearby rocks to collect passport stamps.

    We've always cruised to Anguilla from SXM and in 2025 will include Saba, too. Much depends on the schedule, and its release. St Barts will be optional.

    From SXM we'll get you to the Tests.

    If Australia & West Indies don't play the WTC Final, my Cricket West Indies guru suggests a 3rd Test can be added, which will be outstanding. 

    Whether 2 or 3 Tests, we'll have 8 nights on each island. Should we play a 3rd Test, we'll likely have a 5 night break between the 2nd & 3rd Tests, during which we will visit another island.

    With white-balls, West Indies usually host 3 games on one island, and 3 on another. Though we're not huge white-ball lovers, having 8 nights in Grenada (for e.g.), and 8 nights in St Vincent (for.e.g) submerged in West Indian exuberance makes touring worth it.

    You're going all the way to the West Indies, so stay another 2 weeks and 6 more games, it will be fun.

    When all is done, and depending on where we play, we'll visit another isle to help wind down before heading home; the holiday you need after a holiday.

    To make your tour easy we'll include inter-island travel as required, transfers on arrival and departure, hotels, match tickets, dinner parties, cool fashions, excursions, and more to help make your tour all the more hassle-free.


    Importantly, please know that every moment remains yours to do as you please. We don't hold your hand and do not walk about expecting you to follow the flag. We will point you in directions you may like to go, and that's it.

    When Is The West Indies 2025

    We are scheduled to play June into July 2025, which could mean June 1 - July 1 (or later), or June 30 (or earlier) - July 31. It's abiguous to the day of confirmation.

    What we do know is the ICC World Test Championship Final is scheduled for the first two weeks of June. Thus, our West Indies 2025 Tour could start Thurs June 12 in St Maarten.

    The 1st test could then start Thur. June 19, with the 2nd Test Friday June 27.

    Should neither Australia or West Indies qualify for the WTC Final, the tour could start a week earlier, and with a 3rd test.

    This is all guess work.

    Like every Australian Cricket Tour it can remain unknown until 4 weeks before the first ball, which is infuriating.

    Having only 4 weeks to get your ducks lined up is something we can't control, but we keep ears to the ground for tour news, and will share what we learn.

    Budget For West Indies 2025

    Heads up, the West Indies is not cheap.

    Hotels, restaurants, car hire, inter-island travel, and excursions are priced in US$ for the mass North American market.

    Even though we tour in the low-season, some hotels still have eye-watering rates for 2024, so 2025 could be more.

    As we continue to research and speak with people in the islands, we suggest you save to pay per person, per week:

    • Twin / Double: A$4000+
    • Single Room: A$6000+

    We'd rather say A$4000 and ultimately ask for A$3000, than suggest A$3000 and then ask for A$4000. The tour price fluctuates with the value of the US$.

    This 'approximate' budget includes inter-island travel, 4/5 star hotels/resorts, and best available match tickets that will the best part of US$500 per test.

    • 2003: A$1 = US$0.47c.
    • 2012: A$1 = US$1.10c
    • 2015: A$1 = US$0.75c

    When one beer is US$2, you know which exchange rate works best.

    • Research exchange rates on XE.com

    We know our Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies 2025 will not be our most affordable, but with group rates for hotels, travel, and tours, it may be just as affordable (hotel dependent) to tour than do it yourself, without the hassle.

    Either way, save for not only your time in the islands, but getting there too!

    How To Reach West Indies 2025


    Until Qantas launches Melbourne - Barbados, reaching the West Indies in one hit from Australia can't be done. You must overnight in the US or Canada and get a connecting flight the next day.

    Unless holidaying enroute, our preferred option is to reach Miami (for e.g.) ASAP, overnight there, and pick up a morning flight to arrive into your preferred island.

    It is cheaper to book Australia - Miami - Australia on one ticket, and then Miami - CARIBBEAN ISLAND - Miami on a separate ticket.

    There are dozens of daily direct flights from US and Canadian hubs to most Caribbean nations, with American Airlines out of Miami, the most prolific.

    From the UK, British Airways fly into Barbados, Antigua, St Lucia, Grenada, St Kitts, Jamaica, and Guyana.

    From Europe fly KLM and Air France into our beloved St Maarten.

    Where Will The Cricket Be Played

    We have no idea.

    Back in the day, when there were only 5 nations hosting international cricket, and when we played 5 or 4 tests, the schedule was much easier to surmise.

    The original big 5 of Antigua, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad now vie with Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts, St Lucia, and St Vincent. Sadly, we can't play everywhere.

    For our 30 Years Anniversary, we wish to play in two ‘big’ islands for a change. We last played in Antigua 2008 and Barbados 2012 so it is time we returned to two legacy islands that defined the cricket in the West Indies.

    We have been in communication with Cricket West Indies, citing economics to play Barbados, Antigua, and a 3rd Test. We clearly struck a chord as we received a reply on a Sunday!

    With 10 nations to host 2-3 Tests, there's no guarantee we will play anywhere we want, or anywhere we don't.

    We DO NOT WANT Jamaica, Trinidad, or Guyana as they've no beaches on which to flop after play and plenty of safety negatives we prefer to avoid.

    In 2012 & 2015 we delighted in playing in Dominica, and would love to again but she doesn't have the infrastructure to accommodate us in 2025.

    If not Antigua & Barbados, we'll relish St Lucia & St Kitts as much as Grenada & St Vincent. We've seen cricket in them all.


    The lottery won't be drawn until late 2024 but as soon as we have an itch of where we may play, we'll be prepared.

    If you join us on 2+ islands consecutively, we will get you from one island to the next island and so forth, by boat or plane. Whichever mode, we'll get you to & from the hotel each time.

    If you're only doing one test, no travel is included.

    How Long Is The West Indies 2025

    Once you reach the Caribbean, should it remain at 2 Tests ONLY, please allow:

    • St Maarten: 5 Nights
    • 1st Test: 8 Nights
    • 2nd Test: 8 Nights
    • 3 ODI: 8 Nights
    • 3 T20: 8 Nights
    • Add-On Island: 5 Nights

    • This is no guarantee the tests will be first

    Only Doing One Test Match

    If you can only do one test match, like many do, that's all good!

    Some only want to 'tick the box' on new venues, or don't have time to do more.

    West Indies 2025 will be our first and last tour to the islands for a long time, so more people than ever before will flop over for one test, so don't be shy.

    If you are coming for one test ONLY, no travel is included. We'll get you from & to the airport for a week of fun & larks, but that's it.

    Match Tickets West Indies 2025

    As an Official Tour Operator to Cricket West Indies (contract signed late 2023), we'll have access to all match tickets before they go to public sale.

    Being Australia's first tour in 10 years, the small venues may sell out in a jiffy, and likely if our priority list keeps growing.

    We will choose seats as best we can behind the bowlers' arm for all games.

    Match tickets have one price for West Indians and an unavoidable higher price for tourists. Unlike NZ 2024, tickets will not be A$120 instead closer to US$500.

    Party Stands West Indies 2025

    West Indian venues were renown for their party stands; one ticket, all you can drink, food included, swimming pools, music, stage dancers, and atmosphere unrivalled in world cricket. #Epic

    With the demise in form of West Indies Cricket, the all-inclusive enclaves have too falled foul of poor form.

    The Mound in Jamaica now not a mole hill, the pool in Barbados long drained, the Posse Stand in Trinidad now vacant, the Pepsi Stand in Guyana silently flat, and the rhythm of Chickie's HiFi Disco in Antigua, no longer felt.

    Excitement for West Indies 2025 doesn't mean we won't see a party stand or two. Speaking with Cricket West Indies, the chosen venues will decide their fate.

    Some hotels are only 2km - 3km from the game, so barely 20mins walk, but for your safety & convenience on some islands, we will still drive you.

    Once we know where we're playing, we will confirm whether transfers are included. If ever they are not, cheap taxis for short journeys are plentiful.

    The same goes for arriving by boat, should we skim between rocks.

    As others will arrive or leave at similar times, these will be shared transfers so we may ask you to wait briefly.

    Hotels In The West Indies 2025

    There are no shortage of pillows to suit everyone from sweet homestays, private villas, boutique plantation homes, grand hotels, to all-inclusive gated resorts.

    In the ideal world we'd have a choice of hotels & prices but that makes it difficult for everyone. At a min. we'll include 4-star hotels, most of which are on each island's much-smoother west coast.

    An exception is Barbados' whose famed Parish of Christchurch is packed with hotels of all qualities on its south coast and popular St Lawrence Gap; renown for its bars, restaurants, rum shacks & vibrancy not felt anywhere else in the islands.

    Having always lived in Christchurch, in 2025 we may live on Barbados' lush west coast where fabled beaches and cool hotspots suit more laid-back souls.

    Other exceptions to 'coastal living' are the 3 places we wish to avoid; Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad, whose rugged capitals are where we must live.

    We like to relax on teal waters after play, under palm trees & warming sunsets, all of which you can't do in these nations.

    Let's see what the schedule brings!

    *We no longer offer twin-share unless you book to share a room with someone you know. If you are travelling alone, you must book SINGLE or phone a friend.

    Day Trips In West Indies 2025

    Though many come to the islands for weeks of sand-lubbing, all of these tiny rocks have heaps of reasons to drag yourself off the beach.

    5-days of cricket may stop you from doing most things but with the day after the test scheduled as a 'play day', we'll do something we trust you'll love. 

    Circumnavigating Antigua on a 'cat' is our first wont. Sailing the West Coast to the Pitons of St Lucia, jet-boating out of Black River to Floyd's Pelican Bar in Jamaica, swimming gorges, waterfalls, and hot springs in Dominica, or driving Barbados on a rum shack tour are treasured memories we look to relive.

    It's a shame we may only play 2 Tests!

    Should we not play in Barbados, St Kitt's, Antigua, St Vincent, St Lucia, or Grenada, we will visit one or more of these famed cricket islands for up to 5-nights, during or after the cricket, including if a 3rd Test is added.

    You can have 7 amazing weeks rum punching on a yacht, rocking barefoot on the sand, ducking low-flying aircraft, liming at the weekly 'jump-up', sunning in turquoise waters, snorkelling, caving, diving, kayaking, or kicking back in a rum shack. There's cricket too!

    What we do depends on the schedule, but we'll get you great memories and value for your effort to reach the islands.

    Visiting Non-Cricket Islands

    As our schedule may be limited by only playing 2 tests, we are limited to where we can go. 3 Tests will tick off 4 islands in a flash, but we are not going to waste time by not visiting bonus rocks.

    Unlike Greece there is not a vast ferry industry shipping people across the islands. You must fly so we won't be flippant about where we go.

    We start our Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies 2025 in St Maarten, which is two nations in one, with side trips to Anguilla and Saba.

    From Antigua we can visit St Kitts, Montserrat, and sister island Barbuda.

    St Vincent & the Grenadines has 32 islands, with Grenada further south.

    You can ferry between Martinique, St Lucia, and Dominica but only twice per week, so timing must be spot on.

    With 6 white balls played on 2 islands, we may have time to visit another rock before the first 3 games.

    Without squeezing things in, we'll make the most of your time and effort to visit this awesome region.

    As soon as we know where and when we are playing, we'll build a full itinerary to include everywhere possible.
