Why go there by boat ?

Dream holidays, sailing from an island to another in crystal water... How to resist to the Grenadines?

#1 How can winter get any better?

Flee the cold, the coats and the fireplace and treat yourself with some sunbathing on the deck, swimming all day long, fresh fish at every meal and chill out moments on white-sand beaches. This break in your winter will give you all the vitamin sea you need and a great tan!

#2 WAAAOOOW!

Picture yourself at the Tobago Cays face to a turquoise sea and a desert beach with only one tiny restaurant that will serve you fresh fish and seafood. The only living souls that might come between you and this serenity are the turtles. The islets around you form a perfect scenery. It is as beautiful under the sea as it is above the surface. Get your tuba and your mask on and go meet the incredible marine life: rainbow fishes, sea anemones, colorful starfishes… And to finish perfectly the day, have a cocktail while watching the sun go down.

#3 Paradise is only accessible by boat

If you want to visit the Grenadines, your only option is to sail there. Our skipper know the archipelago by heart and will be able to guide you in this little piece of paradise. It’s also the occasion to discover what living on a sailboat feels like and learn a little bit about navigating for those who are interested.

event_available our 5 best experiences

EXPERIENCE 1 : Dream destination for a peaceful disconnection

The Grenadines, the end of the world. A change of scenery, out of time, far from everything. As soon as you arrive, you will feel like you are somewhere else. In a few minutes you will already have left all your worries behind your. Your previous life will be a far memory, your daily life forgotten and your journey in the West Indies will be a daydream.

The Grenadines have this power and this magic, to empty your head in no time. Idyllic landscapes and warm weather helps a lot. The archipelago shines with its natural tranquility. This destination stays away from the main tourist circuit and in some places it looks like virgin islands. At Chatham Bay, a stopover on a sailboat is a must do. An anchorage quiet and peaceful in the shade of luxury green hills, will offer you incredible moments of peace and serenity. And much more.

EXPERIENCE 2 : An easy sailing way between neighbouring islands

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines seems to be created for skippers! The only long sailing distance during the cruise is from Martinique to the Grenadines. It takes one full day of sailing. Twenty four hours during which you will get used to the sailing boat (or catamaran) and take some rest on the forward deck to recover from your jet lag.

The short distance between islands is the greatest benefit in the Grenadines. Few hours of sailing is enough to join one to the other. It's up to you to choose your next destination!
Between 2 stops, you could have lunch : possibilities of damping are unlimited. There is so much to see in the Grenadines!

Each island abounds of their own jewels and own secrets. In fact, islands are distinguishable by their size .
In south of archipelago, near Petit-Saint-Vincent, Morpion island is the tiniest. It’s just a ten meter’s white sandback along a waterfront. This “beach-island” is headed by a sun umbrella with coconut leaves. An attribute that make all the difference with its neighbour called “Punaise”.
Don’t wait to explore those two grains of sand in the Caribbean sea! Their existence is threatened by global warming and rising waters.

On the opposite side of those tiny territories, you will sail few hours along the Bequia coast. And much more if you sail around Saint-Vincent. This main island is the biggest so far – 344km² on its own, that represents 88% of the archipelago total area.

Each Grenadines islands has their own style in terms of diversity and also to the standard of living. In this respect, the inequalities are obvious. On one side, the luxurious playgrounds of a select few, such as Mosquito, where visitors often arrive in their personal jet. Few islands are private like Petit-Saint-Vincent (or PSV), an exclusive territory reserved for privileged guests of the prestigious hotel complex installed on site. On the other side, The Grenadines are more humble such as Union Island.
Between this two worlds, few common points : a warm sea temperature, range of coconut tree, delicious local rhum and the permanently good mood of people!

EXPERIENCE 3 : A unique encounter with the marine wildlife

Did you really think you were alone in the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines lagoon? Too bad. You’ll have to swim in the middle of the local wildlife, including turtles. There will be many to keep you company during your snorkeling trip. Not shy at all, turtles swim deeply or to the surface. A model of peace of mind and serenity, which could be a good inspiration for your holidays.

The two most common species in the Grenadines are the hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) and the green turtles (Chelonia mydas). Stay alert when you sail in the Grenadines not to miss those mysterious creatures. You’ll have the chance to meet them all over the archipelago and especially in Tobaggo Cays, close to Baradal island.

Don’t stay focus on turtles. The Caribbean seabed supports a rich array of wildlife. You could meet a beautiful ray during your sailing cruise. Their size can sometimes reaches one meter in this area.
Smaller but just as pretty, fishes light up your eyes with their scales of all colors. Yellow, blue, red, they will brighten each of your snorkeling expeditions.
Octopus could join the party. They are able to change skin colour and know how to swim forward or backward.

EXPERIENCE 4 : The best cafeteria

You can’t get more fresh fish than in the Grenadines. You don’t need to catch it yourself, it arrives directly to you! Local fishermen come toward you when you are anchored to sell you their daily catch. A smart example of a short distribution path ! Anyways supermarkets don’t exist in the Grenadines. Every day you can choose between different kind of fish, tuna included, sea urchins’s eggs, or lambis. This mollusc is well appreciated in the West Indian cuisine. A true treat!

You are never as well served as when you serve yourself, some skippers will suggest you to catch some fish directly from the boat.
For example, Alain, Professional skipper, is a fan of fishing. When the anchor is up, he hangs his lines at the back of the catamaran, advance with the wind and that’s it. A simple technic but efficient : Alain often brings back beautiful catches on board. Just go into the kitchen to simmer a meal of local products and 100% guaranteed fresh.

EXPERIENCE 5 : Swimming guaranteed in crystal clear water

Yes, sea is turquoise in the Grenadines archipelago. Really. Deeply turquoise.
This beautiful color is a mark of the Caribbean sea and specifically in the Grenadines. It blends perfectly with the azure horizon, the brilliant white of fine sand and the exuberant green of tropical vegetation. But if you only had to choose one island for the purity of its Eden landscapes, it would be Mosquito island. Or even better, Tobago Cays!

This group of five virgin islets stands on a sparkling blue lagoon. A reef corail called The Horse Shoe Reef protects the place from the currents. The whole thing makes a splendid and unmissable marine park to visit, the Tobago Cays Marine Park.

Sea is very nice and warm in The Grenadines. It's always a pleasure to remind it obviously. It’s so much easier to swim in a more than 25 degrees Celsius all year long. We dive and paddle endlessly and without cold.

Our
advice

The Grenadines islands benefit of the trade winds, which are usually stable. Most sailors will rather navigate leeward because this way you'll find a calm sea. Don't forget, as always, the Venturi effect, which is an accelerating effect in the maritime corridors between the islands.

Perfect climate to flee from winter and enjoy the sun all year long! The best season takes place between december and march. Therefore it is also the touristic peak of the year. If you want to have the place all to yourself, october, november and april offer a great weather too for a cruise in the Grenadines! We wouldn't advise you to go there in August and September because of the cyclone risk, even if they are more and more rare in this part of the Antilles. Not only the water is crystal clear but it also has the perfect temperature to go for a swin or snorkel in the best conditions. You'll be surprised how you can observe the fishes for over an hour without noticing time pass!
