St. Vincent & The Grenadines/Grenada Islands
St. Lucia to Grenada represent a wonderful string of islands known as the Windward Islands. If you have chartered the USVI/BVI territory several times or you are looking for an alternative this season, this region offers plenty of lush, small and boutique style islands to explore. We offer a sample itinerary which is a 8 night “down island” itinerary starting from St. Vincent and ending in Grenada. There are also 6, 7, and 10 night options, as well as a 7 night Grenada to Grenada itinerary available upon request.
This region is best to visit from May-October as many yachts head down island during Atlantic Hurricane season. You can also sometime catch yachts relocating at the start or end of their Virgin Island season. Please contact us to discuss your specific dates and preferences.

Get underway at 12pm once your crew has arranged for transport from the airport or the hotel you stay the night before OR if schedule permits-WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND sleep aboard option.

Sleep in the marina. Get underway mid-morning and sail to Bequia for your first anchorage while enjoying a continental breakfast. If you are searching for a great dive, your crew can arrange for a dive from Bequia on the morning of day 2.
Enjoy a dive in Bequia in the morning or enjoy the leisure sail to Mustique, while stopping to swim take advantage of some of the onboard water toys at Petit Nevis, a small cay. Once you reach Mustique, enjoy the private exclusivity that the island has become famous for.
Wake up and spend the day exploring Mustique on horseback or by hiking and walking the island. Consisting of only 1,400 acres, Mustique is privately owned and has developed into a exclusive holiday location for the rich and famous. The island is a mix of luxury houses, and stunning quiet beaches such as Macaroni beach which enjoys protection from a reef.
Sail from Mustique to Tobago Cays which is a string of 5 small cays (cays are not quite islands).
Spend the day snorkeling and exploring the Cays in particular- off the coast of Baradel is a turtle reserve, and offers you to get close and swim with these creatures. Alternatively, if you are kiteboarder or are interested in learning-the crew can arrange for a day of kiting in Tobago Cays or can take you over to Whistle Salt Bay which offers kite instruction and rentals.
