Example Itinerary for Sailing St. Vincent to Grenada
Day 1: Leave St. Vincent and sail north along St. Vincent’s west coast, past Kingstown to the remote anchorage at Cumberland Bay. A picturesque setting with rustic, natural scenery; good snorkeling; and hiking to the local volcano or the island’s interior region.
Day 2: You are now headed south for a short run to Admiralty Bay, Bequia where there are many activities available, including snorkeling, diving, waterskiing, or simply enjoying the white sand beaches. Onshore, there is ample shopping and excellent bars and restaurants.
Day 3: A close reach sail is in order this day on your Taylor’d Yacht Charters yacht to Mustique, known for it’s rich and famous residents, such as Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Princess Margaret, and Raquel Welch, to name a few. Perhaps you may indulge in lunch at Basil’s, a well known bar and restaurant located on the bay. Then we are on to the Tobago Cays, which offer coral reefs, crystal clear water, and beautiful beaches. There are several excellent anchorages to choose from which are breathtaking overnight stops.
Day 4: In your Taylor’d Yacht Charters yacht we make a short sail to a “secret” lunch stop, which offers excellent snorkeling in clear water with a multitude of sea life and a seawall with a 40 foot drop. This anchorage features the beauty of the Tobago Cays, without the crowds. Then we take a short cruise on to Salt Whistle Bay in Mayreau, one of the most magnificent spots in the Caribbean. The bay is formed by a narrow, crescent-shaped beach and offers a stunning view of the windward side of the Caribbean.
Day 5: Petit St. Vincent, a privately owned island known for its exclusive cottage style resort, is a short morning sail.
Excellent snorkeling off of white sand beaches, and a bar and restaurant with a breathtaking view of the anchorage below will fill up your morning. After lunch, continue on to the lovely island of Carriacou, with perhaps a quick stop at Sandy Island for excellent snorkeling at this tiny, palm-fringed islet. Then, we are on to Tyrrel Bay, a beautiful calm anchorage. There are a number of local bars, restaurants, and rum shops close by.
Day 6: An early start with an open water crossing to the coast of Grenada and a short run down the protected waters of Granada’s west coast to Halifax Bay is an optional but highly recommended land tour. The tour features spice farms, cane fields, the rain forest, as well as the rugged coastline with spectacular views. The tour ends at St. Georges Harbor, where your boat awaits you. The night will be spent here, so you have time to explore this delightful town.
Day 7: The day will begin with a leisurely sail southwest, rounding the corner and heading back toward the lovely anchorage at Prickly Bay. This quiet bay has a marina, bar, and restaurant for shoreside entertainment, and it is only a short drive to the airport from here. You will return home relaxed from the Windward Islands of the Caribbean, with many memories of the beautiful places you have visited aboard your beautiful chartered yacht from Taylor’d Yacht Charters.
