The Caribbean

Our Caribbean Grenadian charters are run from friendly and small base operations offering you the personal and individual attention that you deserve as part of a special sailing holiday experience.

caribbean_1Where else, but a sailing holiday in Antigua, can you be the only sailboat anchored or on the moorings in crystal clear blue water alongside 11 miles of pristine white sand? Where else can you explore 18th century dockyards and relive naval history?

During your Antigua yacht charter, why not take a one way trip to St Maarten, either with a crewed or bareboat yacht charter? Set sail to Nevis, St Kitts and St Barts – with each island as different as the last – and finish your cruise at our base in St Maarten. If nature is top of your list, why not head south to Guadeloupe and then further south to the ‘Nature Isle’ of Dominica? Or simply relax and drop anchor or pick up the moorings during your Antigua yacht charter and watch the world go by. The possibilities are as endless as the Antigua sailing holiday experience is diverse.

We work closely with our partners in Antigua in order to ensure that your holiday is fabulous, transfers work for you and that the finite detail that makes your holiday special is in place. Send us a quick quote, email or give us a call Wendy and the team on 01752 213121 or Wendy on 0783 845 1026 to discuss your exact requirements or check yacht availability.

On boarding your yacht, you will find a Complimentary Starter Kit.

Enjoy even temperatures in Grenada and The Grenadines that vary little during the year, being around 28 C in high season and 31 C in low season where you can sail safely all year round.  Dry season extends from Jan – May, but even in the “rainy season” the weather in Grenada and the Grenadines is normally very sunny with only brief showers during the day.- the weather is warm as is the rain, the locals call it “liquid sunshine!

Sailing conditions in Grenada enjoy warm winds east to north east 15 – 20 knots, beaufort Force 4 to 5 in high season (Dec – Apr) & east to south east 10 – 15 knots, beaufort Force 3 to 4 in low season (May – Nov). Less sheltered than areas to the South of the Grenadines, makes for a more exciting sailing environment with sea state of 1m to 1.3m.

A 7 day Caribbean Adventure

Leave True Blue Bay and sail around to St George’s passing Grand Anse beach. Anchor off or enjoy the luxury of a berth at Port Louis Marina and dinner at the restaurant.

A 7 day adventure awaits!

Embark on an exhilarating day sail to Tyrrel Bay, Carriacou. Anchor amongst the local fishing boats and take in a dram of rum from the floating bar in the middle of the bay.or one of the small restaurants on the water’s edge.  Dine on board or ashore at one of the small restaurants on the water’s edge.

Grenada palm trees

Visit Sandy Island, a stunning stretch of sand with no more than half a dozen palm trees. Watch the pelicans performing aerobatics around your boat as you eat. After breakfast and a snorkel, sail over to Union Island to briefly complete customs formalities and then continue north for a short distance to Mayreau. Drop anchor at Saltwhistle Bay, definitely one of the all time most beautiful anchorages – a perfect horseshoe shaped palm-fringed beach. You could eat ashore tonight at the resort (dining Flintstones style on rock tables with little thatch roofs).

An hour’s sail from Saltwhistle Bay takes you to the Tobago Cays. Simply spectacular! Just off the little island of Baradel is an area cordoned off for turtles to feed, and it’s an incredible experience to get close and swim with these remarkable animals. Dine aboard under the stars after spending the day snorkeling and exploring the beaches of the cays.

 

Chatham Bay is on the west side of the Baradel, a beautiful deserted bay surrounded by hills.  Make your stay magical by organising a beach barbeque with a local fisherman cooking freshly caught lobster for your sailing party.

Grenada fishing folk

Or visit Mopiona with it’s perfect circle of sand in turquoise water with a coconut thatch for shelter. After a snorkel and lunch sail the very short distance to Petit St Vincent, an exclusive private island resort with an excellent restaurant.

On the short sail back to Grenada why not stop at Isle de Ronde for lunch and a swim on the way. Prickly Bay or Clarkes Court Bay on the south coast of Grenada is filled with many local restaurants before embarking on a leisurely sail back around to True Blue Bay for a noon finish.
