Grenadines Sailing Vacation
Trip 12 - Friday 14 May to Sunday 23 May 2021
This is an example of our Grenadines sailing vacation itinerary which includes incredible sailing around the islands of St Vincent, Petit Nevis, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Petit Tabac, Mopion Island, Petit St Vincent, Union Island, Bequia and Young Island! This is a great way for those of you travelling solo, as couples or small groups to enjoy a sailing vacation on a private yacht. You will get hands-on sailing practice and have a great time with a little bit of adventure sailing around the Caribbean. Changes may take place due to guest requests and weather conditions.

Meet Sam and Neil at 2 PM (14:00) at Young Island Cut in St Vincent, and get settled on sailing yacht Nemo. The dock is approximately 30 minutes from Argyle International Airport. Once you are settled we will have the guest briefing after which we highly recommend a walk up 200+ steps on Fort Duvernette where you will get to see stunning views of the south of St Vincent and Bequia, and it is a good way to stretch your legs after a longish flight. After that, you will deserve a cocktail and then a delicious dinner on Nemo.
After breakfast, we will sail downwind around the south of St Vincent. Get the feel of Nemo on the helm if you like or simply take in the stunning scenery. We will med-moor in beautiful Cumberland Bay, with its black volcanic sand. Once anchored you will get to meet some of the fabulous locals, 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.
After yesterday’s downwind sailing it is all about tacking today! After breakfast, we will set sail for Petit Nevis, just south of Bequia. This tiny island is a perfect spot for snorkelling and then lunch before we continue our tacking practice up to the jet-set island of Mustique. Once we have grabbed a mooring ball you can relax onboard the yacht or play with the snorkels, kayak and paddleboard. Then enjoy an island tour with Boom Boom the taxi driver followed by cocktails and dinner ashore at the newly remodelled Basil’s or we can even head to dinner at Firefly…the choice is yours.
We will sail to Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau. This slightly longer sail will give you plenty of time to practice your helming skills if you so wish, or a chance to sit back and relax and take in the scenery! Salt Whistle Bay is picture-perfect. It is a wonderful palm tree-lined bay with heavenly sand and turquoise waters. 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 off to paradise today – yippee! After a delicious breakfast, we will set off to the beautiful Tobago Cays Marine Reserve. Once we arrive snorkelling in the turquoise waters and along the amazing horseshoe reef is a must. 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 and SUP or just relax in paradise. We will have a delicious beach BBQ with Willy and Bets from Union Island – you are in for a real treat 🙂
Yes, we have more beautiful islands in store for you 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 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. We will anchor in Clifton Harbour for lunch giving you a chance to wander around this very picturesque town. We can also head to see Jante on Happy Island and partake in a cheeky afternoon rum cocktail if you wish! Then we will sail around 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’s we can pop to for a sundowner if you wish, 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 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. Ashore you will find a wonderful boardwalk to wander along, a relaxed town with stalls you can visit and incredibly friendly locals. We will also head ashore for cocktails and have our final dinner 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 dock.
