St Lucia to Grenada Adventure Sailing Vacation
Trip 1 - Sunday 25 November to Tuesday 4 December 2018
This is an overview of our adventure sailing vacation which includes the incredible islands of St Lucia, St Vincent & The Grenadines and Grenada. This is a great way for those of you travelling solo, as couples and small groups to enjoy the luxury of a private yacht charter but only book a cabin. Relax, enjoy delicious food and get hands-on sailing practice (should you wish) around the Caribbean. Changes may take place due to guest requests and weather conditions.

Meet Sam and Neil at 2 PM (14:00) in Rodney Bay Marina, in St Lucia, and get settled onboard sailing yacht Nemo. The marina is approximately 90 minutes from St Lucia’s International Airport. Once you are settled we will have the guest briefing; after which we will head out to anchor in the Bay and the start of your holiday celebrations! If you have the energy, we would highly recommend a walk around Pigeon Island National Trust where you will get to see stunning views of the North of St Lucia, and it is a good way to stretch your legs after a longish flight. Our first delicious dinner will be on Nemo.
This morning we will sail to Marigot Bay for lunch, one of our favourite anchorages. Here you will get the chance to swim off the back of the boat in one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Caribbean. After lunch, we will sail down the coast of St Lucia to Soufriere, where we will have our evening meal on Nemo with the spectacular Pitons as our backdrop.
We will have an early start today as this will be our longest sail day and an adventure for sure! We will leave behind St Lucia and sail to the stunning island of St Vincent. Depending on the wind angle, we may go down the east or the west coast, both offer spectacular views and lots of time to have a go on the helm or sit back and enjoy the scenery. If you like we can also trawl the line and perhaps catch some fish for dinner! We will arrive at the Young Island later afternoon and if you have the energy, we would highly recommend a walk up 200+ steps on Fort Duvernette where you will get to see a stunning sunset and a view of Bequia our destination the next day! Dinner will be on board Nemo.
After the long day sailing yesterday, we will have just an hour and a half sail to beautiful Bequia, one of our favourite islands in the Caribbean. This is the perfect place to explore above and below the water. Jump into the glorious fish-filled turquoise waters straight from Nemo and go snorkelling. Or head ashore and you will find a wonderful boardwalk to wander along, a relaxed town with stalls you can visit and incredibly friendly locals. We will head ashore for cocktails and have dinner at one of the many fabulous restaurants.
After breakfast, we will sail to Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau. This slightly longer sail will give you plenty more time to practice your helming skills on Nemo if you so wish, or a chance to sit back and relax and take in the stunning scenery! Salt Whistle is a wonderful palm tree-lined bay. Enjoy a snorkel or walk along the sandy beach, head out on the kayak, visit some of the local stalls or head across to the next bay and watch the kite surfers. We will have dinner on board Nemo.
We are sailing to paradise today – yippee! After a delicious breakfast, we will set off to the beautiful Tobago Cays Marine Reserve. Snorkelling in the turquoise waters is incredible, and hopefully, you will get to swim with Hawksbill Turtles as they munch on the seagrass in the anchorage. We can explore the local area in Dory the Dingy, or in the kayak and SUP and relax in paradise. Dinner can either be on board Nemo or a delicious BBQ ashore.
After a morning dip and breakfast, we will sail to Union Island, the capital of The Grenadines. We will take a mooring in Clifton Harbour for lunch. After which you can snorkel off the back of the yacht around the stunning reef. We can also head to see Mr King on Happy Island and partake in a cheeky afternoon rum cocktail if you wish! Then we will pop over to Mopion. A teeny tiny sandbank and the perfect location for that desert island photo. After we will sail to the stunning Chatham Bay for the evening and a tasty evening meal on board Nemo or a BBQ dinner ashore. This is wonderful bay for snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are some great beach bars like Vanessa’s, or pop to Aqua which has a beachside swimming pool you can relax in.
This morning we will head into Grenadian waters for the first time. We will stop in Sandy Island, another picture-perfect palm tree lined island with great snorkelling. After lunch, we will go to Tyrell Bay, here you can swim, snorkel and relax. We can also take you over to check out the mangroves in the corner of the bay, or head ashore to sample a cheeky cocktail in one of the rum shops! So many choices :-). Dinner will be ashore today.
We will sail down the west coast of Grenada, a truly luscious green island that provides a hint of spice in the wind as we sail past. Lunch in Ronde Island. Our anchorage will be Molinere. This is an incredible underwater sculpture park and a great place to snorkel. After we will have a delicious final dinner on board Nemo.
After a last dip into the lovely warm waters, we will set sail to Port Louis Marina, Grenada. We will arrive in time for a noon (12 PM) departure from the marina.
