West Indies 2025 Tour Intro

Since 'forever', an Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies has been a preferred tour for many. We get more enquiries about touring the West Indies than any other nation, 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, coral, cricket, and fun.

Almost anything goes in the West Indies, though we don't deny that 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 are what brings many to say, 'I want to tour the West Indies', but we don't pretend that touring the islands is little like it was after the ICC ruined cricket in the West Indies with their Cricket World Cup 2007.

Unnecessary large and characterless venues sucked the passion, heart, and purpose out of the game, and West Indies cricket has not been the same.

What we didn't lose were the locals that make touring the West Indies as special as 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 you should be too as this will be our ONLY West Indies Test Cricket Tour for maybe 10 more years!

30 Years Anniversary Tour

June 2025 will be 10 years since our last Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies and 30 years since our first in 1995 on what was to be a 'one-off' adventure before continuing 'life at home'.

Thankfully, it wasn't to be.

West Indies 2025 will be our 11th tour of the islands and anticipation is huge, with more than 750 on 'priority list'.

This ever-growing list includes others that toured in 1995, family, friends, and even past players who have envied our cricket touring through the years.

If you haven't, Book Now For A$1 and help us celebrate 30 years of watching Australian Cricket, where it all began!

West Indies 2025 Cricket Tour Schedule

Schedule To Be Confirmed

  • Add-On Islands (7nts)
  • 1st Test (8nts)
  • 2nd Test (8nts)
  • Add-On Island (5nts)
  • 3rd Test (TBC) (8nts)
  • 3 ODI's (7nts)
  • 3 T20's (7nts)
  • Add-On Island (TBC) (5nts)

Waiting 10 years for Australia to return the West Indies means this is a tour you should plan 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, an island or two to start, perhaps one island in the middle, and another island to finish.

We'll have up to 8 nights on each island. Should we play 3 Tests, we may have 4 nights break after the 2nd Test, when we will visit another island.

Conveniently, the West Indies often play 3 white-ball games on one island and 3 on another. Though not white-ball fans, having 8 nights in Grenada (for e.g.), and 8 nights in St Vincent (for.e.g) drowned in West Indian exuberance is worth it.

You're going a long way to the West Indies, so stay 2 more weeks for 6 more games, it will be fun.

We plan to include inter-island travel (TBC), transfers on arrival and departure, hotels, match tickets, dinner parties, cool fashions, and more to help make your tour all the more hassle-free.

*NO TRAVEL TO/FROM THE WEST INDIES IS INCLUDED*

Please know that every moment is yours to do as you please. We don't hold your hand. We will point you in directions you may like to go, and that's it.

When Is The West Indies 2025

The Australian Cricket Tour to the West Indies is scheduled for June into July 2025 and will remain ambiguous to the day of confirmation.

Like every Australian Cricket Tour it can remain unknown until several weeks (India!) before the first ball, but this isn't India so you should have 6+ months to get your West Indian ducks lined up.

The tour will sneak up on you, so start collecting your ducks now.

We always keep ears to the ground for tour news, and will share what we learn.

How To Reach The West Indies 2025

**HOT TIP: LEAVE HOME EARLIER!**
Do not plan to arrive 'the night before'. Not even the day before. One missed flight connection and you miss the start of the series you've waited 10 years to see! Arrive, Relax, and Refresh with a few extra days in the Caribbean!

**NO TRAVEL TO/FROM THE WEST INDIES IS INCLUDED**

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 fly the next day.

Our preferred option is to overnight in Miami and fly the next morning into St Maarten (SXM) (TBC) where we may start our Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies 2025.

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, Guyana, and Aruba.

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

Where Will The West Indies 2025 Cricket Be Played

We have no idea.

The original 'Big 5' of Antigua, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, & Trinidad now vie with Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts, St Lucia, and St Vincent.

We last played Antigua 2008 and Barbados 2012 so our 30 Years Anniversary will be a perfect time to revisit two legacy islands that defined cricket in the West Indies.

In 2012 & 2015 we delighted in playing in Dominica, and would love to again but would also love a change of scenery such as St Lucia & St Kitts or even Grenada & St Vincent.

#WeveSeenThemAll

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

Only Doing One Test Match

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

We know this will be a long tour but there is no obligation for you to do 'the whole thing'. We've never locked you in to touring any longer than your time allows.

You 'cherry pick' your preferred matches and side-trips.

The Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies 2025 could be our last tour to the islands for a long time, and more people than ever before will flop over for just 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.

West Indies 2025 Match Tickets

As Official Tour Operator to Cricket West Indies 2025 (contract signed in 2024) we'll have access to match tickets, including best available, before you.

These tickets will be included in our hotel package, and match tickets package.

Being the first Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies in 10 years, the small venues may sell out in a jiffy, and likely if our priority list keeps growing.

West Indies Match Tickets have one price for locals and a higher price for tourists. This has always been.

Match tickets for West Indies V England 2022 suggests the best available tickets for West Indies 2025 will be close to US$500 per test, including our tour operator licence fee.

'Best available' (over the bowlers' arm) tickets are extremely limited and will be included in our packages, along with lower priced tickets.

Party Stands In The West Indies 2025

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

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

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

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

#StayTuned

Match Day Transfers In The West Indies 2025

Knowing where we'd like to stay relative to each venue, match day transfers will be included on most islands.

Some hotels are only 2km - 3km from the game, but for safety & convenience, we may 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.

Airport And Hotel Transfers In The West Indies 2025

**HOT TIP: LEAVE HOME EARLIER!**
Do not plan to arrive 'the night before'. Not even the day before. One flight cancellation or missed connection and you miss the start of the series you've waited 10 years to see! Arrive, Relax, and Refresh with a few extra days in the Caribbean!

Whether you enjoy one test or the whole tour, we will meet you when you arrive 2 or 3 days before the start of the test, as part of your hotel tour.

These are shared transfers, so you may need to wait briefly for others. If you do not wish to wait, you will be welcome to pay for your own taxi, most of which are pre-paid or have a set-fare.

If you book our match tickets package, no transfers of any kind are included, even if you are staying at our hotel.

When departing, our 'shared transfers' will get you to the airport earlier than expected, but never later.

Hotels In The West Indies 2025

Across the islands there is no shortage of sweet homestays, private villas, boutique plantation homes, grand hotels, to all-inclusive gated resorts.

If booking our match tickets package, you will have endless choice.

When booking our hotel tours, we will offer a choice of 3-star and 4-star hotels, along with ALL-INCLUSIVE resorts.

All-inclusive means all food, alcohol, and non-motorised watersports are included for the duration of your stay. Check-in and check-out with nothing to pay, except perhaps laundry.

Our hotel choices will depend on each island and, where possible, will be on each island's much-smooth west coasts, except Barbados.

Their famed south coast Parish of Christchurch is filled with hotels, resorts, restaurants, silky sands, bars, B&B's, rum shacks, blue waters, & vibrancy not felt elsewhere else in the islands.

We always live in Christchurch, but in 2025 we MAY ALSO live on Barbados' platinum west coast where fabled beaches and cool hotspots suit more laid-back souls. It will depend on much higher hotel pricing & availability, and us playing in Barbados.

Other exceptions to 'coastal living' are Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad. Forget the postcards, there is no sand or turqoise waters in Kingston, Port of Spain, or Georgetown. It doesn't mean we won't have more ripping times in these cities should we play there.

*We no longer offer twin-share unless you book to share 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 suggest many things to do. 

With so much choice, it is likely we won't include any day trips instead leave you to choose what you prefer to do. If you are staying 'All Inclusive', lobbing by the pool is perfectly acceptable.

For the adventurous, 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 in Dominica, driving the rum shacks of Barbados, or plane-spotting in St Maarten, are treasured memories we look to relive.

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 7-nights, before, during or after the cricket, including if a 3rd Test is added.

We'll get you rum punching on yachts, rocking barefoot on the sand, ducking aircraft, liming at the weekly 'jump-up', sunning in crystal waters, snorkelling, caving, diving, kayaking, or kicking back in rum shacks!

Visiting Non-Cricket Islands

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 often start our Australian Cricket Tour To The West Indies 2025 in St Maarten (SXM), which is two nations in one, however after our recent visit (June 2024) we are now considering a 'fresh start'!

From Antigua we can visit St Kitts, Montserrat, and sister island Barbuda. whereas St Vincent & the Grenadines is 32 islands in one.

You can boat between Guadaloupe, Martinique, St Lucia, and Dominica but only twice per week.

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

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

As soon as we know where & when we're playing, we'll confirm a full tour that makes the most of your time in this awesome region.
