For a seven-day charter, this is our suggested itinerary:
Make the passage from Grenada to Carriacou. Once at Tyrrel Bay, anchor among the local fishing boats and enjoy a stroll followed by a drink ashore at one of the many rum shops or delightful restaurants. Exit clearance formalities can be conducted ashore in the South of Tyrrel Bay at Carriacou Marine Services.
Have breakfast stop at Sandy Island, a beautiful stretch of white sand with no more than half a dozen palm trees. After breakfast and snorkeling, sail over to Union Island and complete check in formalities for St. Vincent at Clifton Harbor at the airport. Continue North for a short distance and drop anchor at delightful Salt Whistle Bay on Mayreau for the night.
After breakfast at Salt Whistle Bay, take a short stroll up the hill into the charming interior and village area. See the breathtaking views out across the Tobago Cays and Atlantic beyond from the rear of the church. Take a short sail to the Tobago Cays and spend the day snorkeling the reef, swimming with turtles and exploring by dinghy, or just stay on board and marvel at the natural unspoiled beauty of the cays. For dinner, barbecue under the stars at the invitation of the locals who will serve lobster on the beach.
Sail back to Clifton for check out, and then head for the west side of Union Island, where you’ll find Chatham Bay, which is a beautiful deserted bay surrounded by hills. A beach barbecue with a local chef will make the night unforgettable.
Day 5 and 6
Either relax for an extra night at tranquil Petit Martinique after a swim at the iconic deserted sandy island of Morpion or, if it’s the last full day, sail back to St George’s. Make a stopover for snorkeling at the stunning underwater sculpture park in Grand Mal Bay, just minutes north of the capital. Refuel at the Yacht Club and clear customs in Port Louis Marina by 4pm (if you didn’t already do it at Tyrrel Bay). Enjoy a last night meal at one of the many local restaurants.
