Caribbean Cabin Charter - The Grenadines
Trip 10 - Friday 16 April to Sunday 25 April 2021
Join us on our incredible Caribbean cabin charter sailing holiday. This yacht charter sees us hitting THE top spots in the Grenadines, with sailing between St Vincent, Petit Nevis, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Petit Tabac, Mopion Island, Petit St Vincent, Union Island, Bequia and Young Island! This is a really great way for solo travellers, couples or small groups to enjoy a private yacht charter, but with just the cost of booking a cabin. We invite you to get hands-on sailing practice in paradise with Captain Neil, who is also a sailing instructor with the RYA.
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 about 30 minutes from Argyle International Airport and conveniently located alongside lots of great hotels and restaurants. We will come and pick you up in Dory the Dinghy and once you are settled on board we will have the guest briefing with a refreshing cold drink. After this, we suggest a walk up to Fort Duvernette where you will get to see a stunning view of the south coast of St Vincent and Bequia. It is a great way to stretch your legs after a longish flight and after that, you will truly deserve a cocktail and then a delicious welcome dinner cooked by Sam.
After breakfast, we will sail around the south of St Vincent and up the leeward side of the island. Jump on the helm and get a feel for Nemo as we sail downwind if you like, or simply take in the stunning tropical scenery. We will anchor in this beautiful bay. Once settled 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 a scrumptious dinner.
Get ready for a great day of sailing with lots of different sights and some sheltered tacking practice. You can enjoy time on the helm and work the lines under Captain Neil’s guidance or sit back and relax! Our first stop will be Petit Nevis. This tiny island is a perfect spot for snorkelling and great to explore ashore. It used to be an old whaling station. After lunch, we will continue our tacking practice to Britannia Bay in Mustique. When we are tied up to our morning ball, jump in for a swim or play with the snorkels, kayak and paddleboard. We would recommend an 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.
Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau is our destination today. It is a delightful sail along the north and west coast of Canouan and will give you plenty of time to practice your sailings skills if you so wish! 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 the fabulous ‘Last bar before the Jungle!’ 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.
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 we can pop to for a sundowner, then back to Nemo for dinner.
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.
After so much sailing, we are going to spend our final day at anchor in beautiful Bequia, the island of clouds. You can spend your time relaxing on Nemo, playing with the water toys, soaking up the sun on the beach or strolling around town. Then we will have our final dinner under the stars on Nemo.
Our last morning will see us sail to Fort Duvernette in St Vincent. We will arrive in time for a 12:00 (12 PM) departure from the Young Island dock.
