West Indies 2025 Tour Intro

For a very 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 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 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 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 you should be too as this will be our ONLY Test Cricket Tour to the West Indies through 15 years!

    30 Years Anniversary Tour

    June-July 2025 will be 10 years since our last West Indian rum punch.

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

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

    Thankfully, it wasn't to be.

    When we return in 2025 we'll have seen almost 250 test matches in every test nation Australia has competed.

    West Indies 2025 will be our 11th trip to the islands and anticipation is huge, with more than 500 already 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 yet, add your name below and celebrate our 30 years of watching 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 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, 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 (Anguilla, Saba, St Barts) to collect passport stamps.

    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 may have a 5 night break after the 2nd Test, when we will visit another island.

    To save travel, the West Indies usually play 3 white-ball games on one island and 3 on another; a format we hope remains.

    Though 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 the cricket is done, we'll head to another isle for the holiday you need after a holiday.

    To make your tour easy we will include inter-island travel (TBC), 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.

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

    Importantly, please know that every moment remains yours to do as you please. We don't hold your hand and you do not walk around following a 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 late June into July 2025 and will remain abiguous to the day of confirmation.

    ICC World Test Championship Final is scheduled for the first two weeks of June so we can't play then.

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

    As this is not India, we trust you will have at least 6 months to get your ducks lined up.

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

    At all times we keep ears to the ground for tour news, and will share what we learn.

    How To Reach The West Indies 2025

    • NO FLIGHTS TO OR FROM THE WEST INDIES ARE 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.

    Unless holidaying enroute, our preferred option is to overnight in Miami and fly the next morning into your preferred island.

    It is cheaper to book Australia - Miami - Australia on one ticket, and Miami - CARIBBEAN - Miami on another.

    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.

    In the halcyon days, when only 5 nations hosted international cricket, a tour was much easier to plan, even still not knowing where.

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

    Sadly, we can't play everywhere.

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

    We have been writing with Cricket West Indies, citing economics to play Barbados, Antigua, and a 3rd Test. We clearly struck a chord as they opened dialogue on a Sunday!

    With 10 nations to host 2 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 them all.

    #10TestMatchSeries

    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.

    • INTER-ISLAND TRAVEL MAY BE INCLUDED

    Until we know where we are playing, it is our intent include convenient inter-island travel. So, should 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, as well as to/from the hotel each time.

    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!

    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.

    West Indies 2025 Match Tickets

    As Official Tour Operator to Cricket West Indies (contract signed through 2024), we'll have access to all match tickets before the general public.

    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'll book seats behind the bowlers' arm, if available, for all games.

    Unavoidably, match tickets have a price for West Indians and a much higher price for tourists.

    Match tickets for England in West Indies 2022 suggests match tickets for West Indies 2025 will be up to US$500 per test.

    Party Stands In The West Indies 2025

    West Indian venues were renown 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 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, 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 revival. Speaking with Cricket West Indies, the chosen venues will decide their fate.

    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 2km - 3km from the game, so barely 20mins walk, 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.

    As these are shared transfers, we may ask you to wait briefly for others.

    When flying out, even if travelling on your own, we decide when your transfer will leave for the airport. We will only 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.

    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' south coast. The famed Parish of Christchurch is filled with hotels, resorts, restaurants, bars, rum shacks & vibrancy not felt elsewhere else in the islands.

    We've always lived in Christchurch, but in 2025 we MAY live on Barbados' lush west coast where fabled beaches and cool hotspots suit more laid-back souls. It will depend on our expected numbers, hotel pricing, & availability.

    Other exceptions to 'coastal living' are the 3 places we wish to avoid; Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad. We like to relax on teal waters after play, under palm trees & warming sunsets, which you can't do in these rugged capitals.

    Let's see what the schedule brings!

    *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 The 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 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 aircraft, liming at the weekl 'jump-up', sunning in crystal 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 therefore limited to where we can go.

    3 Tests and St Maarten can tick off 6 nations, but we are not going to waste any 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, before you hit Grenada.

    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 & when we're playing, we'll build a full itinerary to include everywhere possible.
