We are based on the island of Bequia just south of St Vincent in the Grenadines.

St Vincent

St Vincent – capital Kingston a buzzing vibrant town full of character and charm.   Sail north to bays and stories of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.  If you have time take a guided tour of the rain forest.

A worthwhile island to take the time to explore. It has quite a few beautiful small anchorages with room only for a cluster of yachts. See the tourist boards website on www.svgtourism.com. There are fantastic hikes, rainforest tours and much more!  We can take care of bookings and arrangements.

Bequia

Bequia – Admiralty Bay has a wonderful lively atmosphere with an excellent fruit and vegetable market. The blowing of a conch shell announced fresh fish on the dock. Laundry, Garbage, water, and ice are available on the quay. Friendship Bay is a beautiful and quieter alternative. Why not take an island tour to the turtle sanctuary, learn to make pottery, go hiking or explore the local arts, crafts and museums on the island?

Canouan

Canouan has spectacular beaches and stunning walks. The northern part is dominated by a resort hotel but Charlestown Bay is the main anchorage. The Tamarind Beach Hotel has rental mules for eploring the town and their Saturday night BBQ is worth a stopover. Call them to reserve as they are normally very busy.

Mayreau

Salt Whistle Bay and Saline Bay are both shaded by palms and covered in white sand providing an excellent evening or lunchtime stopover. Both are our favourite anchorages. Both anchorages again provide excellent snorkeling and a short walk into town enables you a chance to really get to know the island and see an amazing view of Tobago Cays.

The Tobago Cays

Part of which was a film set for the Pirates of the Caribbean.  Tobago Cays is considered the most scenic anchorage in the Grenadines and by some, the whole Caribbean. This national marine park has crystal clear shallow water, an abundance of fish and beautiful corals and is a great location for snorkeling and turtle spotting.

Local venders sell fresh fish and lobster which can be barbequed for you on request on the beach, otherwise bring your own provisions and cook on board. An ideal place to anchor, snorkel around the reefs and unwind for a couple of days.

Dive boats can pick you up from your yacht and if you have run out of supplies they will bring more for you also!   We can arrange a lobster BBQ on your own private beach under the stars.  Bring your own drinks and the guys will provide a meal to remember.

Union Island

Union Island is well worth a stopover.  Clifton, the main harbour, is protected by a reef and is a bustling small port.  Chatham Bay is a sheltered anchorage where you can watch the pelicans dive whilst you watch the sunset. There is a colourful market in the village square where you can buy local produce.

Petit St Vincent and Petite Martinique

Both lovely overnight or lunchtime stops before either sailing back to Union or continuing to sail south towards Grenada.  PSV is a private island but yachties are welcome on non private beaches.  The beach bar serves drinks and food and a great sunset stopover.  Fine dining in the hotel restaurant is by reservation only.  Petite Martinique has charm and character and well worth a visit be it to provision or sample the local food.

 

 

Carriacou

Dominated by fishing, farming and seafaring, Carriacou is a beautiful island to explore by land or sea with plenty of anchorages for lunchtime and overnight stops. Hillsborough town is ideal for provisioning and great fun to wonder around on a weekday.
