Kite & Cruise The Windwards
St. Vincent and the Grenadines are made up of over 600 islands in the southeast Caribbean. Our Grenadines charters begin from either St. Vincent or Canouan. For those that enjoy sailing and sightseeing, we recommend starting the trip from St. Vincent, which will add a days sail through the north Grenadines islands of Bequia, Mustique and Canouan on our way south. Alternatively, for those that wish to skip some occasionally rough but exhilarating sailing, we will begin our trip in the heart of the Grenadines at Canouan and make the short passages to anchorages at the Tobago Cays, Mayreau and Union with day trips to Petit St. Vincent (PSV) and Mopion.
Out of all of our trips, the Grenadines offer the some of the most challenging and rewarding kite conditions. Past trips have seen wind ranging from 15-30+ mph and the windy season extends well into spring. Most of the kiting will be done behind
reefs in protected waters. When the swell is up there are waves outside the reefs and we have a couple spots that offer the smoothest water you can imagine. We do not offer beginner classes in the Grenadines for lack of suitable teaching area.
Anyone that can stay upwind and self-rescue will be comfortable riding at any of our kite spots. The Grenadines are a Kiter’s playground, full of unique rides not to be missed.
Diving in the grenadines is spectacular. There are plenty of shallow reef dives with some good caves, wrecks, night dives and even some volcano vents. Some of the best diving is located in the Tobago Cay National Park where you must dive with a local shop. Local operators offer PADI certification, gear rental and reasonably priced dive charters that pick us up right from the yacht.
Where? Everywhere. The abundance of shallow reefs and protected lagoons make the grenadines a snorkeler’s mecca. The Tobago Cays is a marine park where you can swim with the turtles and spend days snorkeling the vast horseshoe reef with access right from the anchorage.
When you need to get off the boat and stretch your legs, there are plenty of hikes, horseback riding, biking and exploring.
