The islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines are known as sailing destinations and could have been designed for cruising. Following a sweeping southeasterly curve through the Caribbean Sea, the islands make a perfect one-way cruise, aligning to let you make the most of the tropical nor’easter winds and waves. The largest island is home to the capital, Kingstown, and the chain of smaller islands offers exclusive private locations, volcanic landscapes, and stunning reefs for snorkeling and diving. Although the islands only total 150 square miles, with many idyllic white-sand beaches, lush rainforest, and colourful reefs to explore, why not take a ten-day charter yacht to let yourself relax, and enjoy the journey on ‘Island Time’.At the southernmost tip of St. Vincent, most Caribbean charter cruises begin at the capital city and main port, Kingstown. The nearest island of Bequia is an easy sail away, and famous for its vibrant reef. Informally dubbed the “critter capital of the Caribbean”, whether you choose to dive or snorkel you will encounter diverse marine life, thought to be brought about by the currents of the Atlantic and Caribbean Seas as they combine. Seahorses, octopuses, and frogfish reside on the reefs, and you are likely to sight a visiting fever of manta rays who will glide below you and roll upside down to peer curiously at you – a wonderful sight! The many restaurants lining the long beaches offer perfect settings to enjoy the warm evenings with a piña colada and chat about the day’s experiences.
The exclusive private island of Mustique offers luxury and privacy. With plots owned by royalty, the island is a favourite of the rich and famous, for holidaying and private events. A tour of the pristine gardens and spectacular homes is an impressive sight, and there are remnants of the island’s history to be seen, such as the old sugar mills and plantations.
