Adventure Sailing Cabin Charter Around The Grenadines
Trip 11 – Friday 30 April to Sunday 9 May 2021
Join us sailing on our amazing adventure sailing cabin charter around The Grenadines. This yacht charter sees us sailing around St Vincent and 10 Grenadine islands – Petit Nevis, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Petit Tabac, Mopion Island, Petit St Vincent, Union Island, Bequia and Young Island!
This is the best way for solo travellers, couples or small groups to enjoy a yacht charter without paying for the whole boat! Just book a cabin and you will get hands-on sailing practice in paradise with an RYA sailing instructor, eat delicious homemade food and have a great time whilst getting looked after by your crew Neil and Sam.
Please note that changes may take place due to guest requests and weather conditions.
Meet your crew, Sam and Neil at 2 PM (14:00) at Young Island Cut in St Vincent. Our meeting point is Calliaqua which is just 30 minutes from the airport and close to lots of great hotels and restaurants. We will meet you in Dory (our Dinghy!), your first fun experience! Once you are settled into your cabins, Neil will give a guest briefing and then we suggest a visit to Fort Duvernette and a hike up the 250+ steps to the top, where you will be rewarded with a stunning view of the south coast of St Vincent and Bequia. It is the perfect way to stretch your legs after a longish flight and after that, you will truly deserve a cocktail and one of Sam’s delicious dinners on Nemo.
After breakfast, we will sail around the south of St Vincent and north up the coast of the island. Take over the helm from Neil and get a feel for Nemo as we sail out on our first sail. Or simply sit back and take in the stunning tropical scenery – the choice is yours. St Vincent really does have a beautiful coastline, and after an hour or so we will anchor in Cumberland Bay, a beautiful bay with black volcanic sand. Once we are anchored you will have the chance to meet some of the fabulous local friends, relax, take a swim in the fresh fish-filled waters and then get ready for a spectacular sunset. We can head ashore to one of the beach bars for a sundowner if you like and then head back to Nemo for another scrumptious dinner.
Get ready for a great day of sailing with lots of different sights and some tacking practice. Jump on the helm and work the lines under Captain Neil’s guidance or just get ready to shout helm- to-lee! Our first stop is Petit Nevis. This tiny island is an excellent spot for snorkelling. It used to be an old whaling station and from the windward coast, you will get a great view of Battowia, Baliceau and the infamous Mustique. After lunch, we will continue our tacking practice to Britannia Bay where we will tie up to a morning ball. After you can jump in for a swim or play with the snorkels, kayak and paddleboard. We would recommend a Mustique island tour to see where the rich and famous live! Then we can head for cocktails and dinner ashore at Basil’s or we can even head to dinner at Firefly…the choice is yours.
Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau is where we are sailing today. It is a great sail along the north and west coast of Canouan and will give you plenty of time to practice sailing on a deep broad reach! Salt Whistle Bay is picture-perfect. Golden sand, crystal clear waters, perfect palm trees, colourful beach stalls and lots of rum shops will welcome you. Enjoy a snorkel or walk along the beach, head out on the kayak, visit some of the local stalls or head across to the next bay and watch the kite surfers. After cocktails at one of the many beach bars, we will have dinner on board Nemo.
We are sailing to paradise today – woohoo! After a delicious breakfast, we will set off to the beautiful Tobago Cays Marine Reserve. Once we arrive you will want to jump straight into the turquoise waters and snorkelling along the amazing horseshoe reef. And hopefully, you will swim with Hawksbill Turtles as they munch on the seagrass in the anchorage. We can explore the local area in Dory, the kayak and SUP or take it all in. It is stunning! We will have a delicious beach BBQ with Willy and Bets from Union Island. You are in for a delicious feast.
Yes, we are sailing to yet more beautiful islands today. First, we will stop at the picture-perfect Mopion Island. Walk around the island and swim in the warm pool-like waters. Then it will be a short hop to Petit St Vincent. This private island is as close as we will get to Grenada on this sailing trip. Head ashore to enjoy some seriously fabulous cocktails at Goatie’s and then we will pop back to Nemo for dinner.
After a morning dip and breakfast, we will sail to Union Island, the capital of The Grenadines. Your crew will ensure a smooth arrival in Clifton Harbour. Sam will get your lunch ready for you as you have a wander around this very picturesque town. If rum is your tipple of choice we also suggest a visit to Jante on Happy Island where we can partake in a cheeky afternoon rum cocktail if you wish! Then we will have a short downwind sail around the south of Union Island to Chatham Bay for the evening and a tasty evening meal on board Nemo. This is another one of our favourite bays for snorkelling, kayaking and paddleboarding. There are some great beach bars like Vanessa & Seckie’s Beach Bar we can pop to for a sundowner, then back to Nemo for dinner.
Each of the islands has so much to offer and so today we will be heading back to Mayreau. First stop will be Windward Bay, a perfect place for more snorkelling. Then we will head to our evening anchorage in Saline Bay. There are only about 250 inhabitants on this Island and most of them live in Saline Bay. Pop into town and see the many rum shops and the most amazing views from the top of the island to Tobago Cays. Dinner will be on board Nemo.
This morning we will set sail for Bequia, one of our favourite anchorages. We will lunch underway and arrive in the afternoon. Port Elizabeth is a charming, sleepy port of call with a pedestrian footpath that stretches around most of the bay. Shops feature the works of model shipbuilders. Among the attractions are the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary and a number of galleries, artisans’ shops and stalls. Restaurants and cafés are also aplenty here, and they offer a great variety and standard of food. We can head to the floating Bar One for a cocktail before we have our final dinner ashore at one of the many fabulous restaurants, such as Macs.
Our last morning will see us sail to the Fort Duvernette in St Vincent. We will arrive in time for a 12:00 (12 PM) departure from the Young Island dock.
