This is an outline of a fabulous Caribbean adventure sailing trip! It includes the incredible islands of Grenada, Carriacou, Sandy-, Union-, and Happy Island…Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Petit St Vincent and Ronde Island! If you are single, travelling solo, as a couple or a small group this is a great way to enjoy a crewed yacht charter, get hands-on sailing practice, eat delicious food and have a great time sailing around the Caribbean. Oh, and get a tan in time for all those Christmas photos ;-).

Meet Sam and Neil and the other guests at 14:00 (2 PM) in Port Lois Marina in Grenada. The airport is approximately 25 minutes away in a taxi. Once you are settled on your private yacht we will provide a guest briefing and then we will head straight out to sea! Our first stop will be Molinere. This is an incredible underwater sculpture park and a great place to snorkel. After we will have a delicious dinner on Nemo and kick-off your holiday in style!
We will sail up the west coast of Grenada today. A truly luscious green island that provides a hint of spice in the wind. Neil will start showing you how to sail Nemo and if you like you can have a go on the helm or being crew. If you just want to relax and take in the sight…that is absolutely fine too. Our destination for the evening will be Tyrell Bay in Carriacou. A lovely little island, with rum shops, dotted all along the beach and an anchorage that provides stunning sunsets. Once you have had a chance to relax we will go ashore for dinner.
After breakfast, we will leave Grenadian waters and head to Union Island for lunch. This is a great snorkelling area and if you want to we can also head to see Mr King on Happy Island and partake in a cheeky afternoon cocktail! Afterwards, we will have an hour sail to the beautiful Chatham Bay. We love this Bay as it is really great for snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are also some great local bars to visit, such as Vanessa’s. Aqua even has a beach pool you can laze in with a rum cocktail!
After an earliesh breakfast, we will have an all-day sail to Bequia, one of our favourite anchorages. Lots of time for you to try your hand on the helm, perhaps trawl the fishing lawn and relax as you take in the sights. Bequia is one of the most beautiful islands in the Grenadines and there is a lot to explore, so we will be spending two nights here. Once we arrive you can relax on Nemo or on one of the many beautiful beaches. We will have a delicious dinner on board Nemo.
Today is a day of leisure. Relax, read your favourite book as you soak up the sun on Nemo or one of the local beaches. There is lots of snorkelling in the area or why not try a dive and get to see fish filled tropical waters with Dive Bequia? Ashore 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 in Bequia.
After breakfast, we will sail to Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau. This slightly longer sail will give you more time to practice your helming skills 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.
Today we will spend the day in paradise – yippee! After a tasty breakfast, we will set off to the wonderful Tobago Cays Marine Reserve. Snorkelling in the turquoise waters is incredible, 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 Dingy, the kayak or the SUP and relax in paradise. For dinner, we will head to the beach for a local BBQ. Willy one of the local boat boys together with his cook, Bets, will create a delicious dinner for us.
Today we will explore lots of tiny islands and sandbanks. After breakfast, we will sail around the reef to Petit Tabac, a tiny deserted island just before World’s End Reef and one of the locations in the Pirate of the Caribbean movie – Curse of The Black Pearl. After we will sail into Union Island to clear out of St Vincent and then head to Mopion, a tiny sandbank for lunch. After we will go to Hillsbourough where we will clear back into Grenada. We will then take a mooring ball at Sandy Island where will have dinner on Nemo. This sandy bar is a great place for a snorkel and for taking pictures on a deserted island!
Our last full day will be an all-day sail back to Grenada. On the way, we will stop at Ronde Island. Only inhabited by a few fishermen, this remote island is a perfect lunch stop and a great place to jump in for a snorkel. After lunch, we will then sail back down the coast of Grenada and anchor in Halifax or Grand Anse for the evening and our last dinner on board Nemo.
This last morning can be used relaxing and jumping off the beautiful waters in and around Grand Anse, or we can sail to Mourne Rouge Bay for a last short sail and snorkel. We will set sail to Port Louis Marina, Grenada. We will arrive in time for a noon (12 PM) departure from the marina.
