Grenadines Yacht Charters
Grenadines yacht charters offer the ultimate escape in the Caribbean. Strewn down the eastern waters of the Caribbean, the Grenadines stretch from St Vincent in the north to Grenada in the south.
St Vincent and the Grenadines consist of 32 islands and cays strung out over 98km of strikingly blue sea, each one a short hop from the next. Southernmost of the Windward Islands and named the Spice Island, Grenada is one of the more sleepy Caribbean islands.
In the Grenadines, life moves at a much slower pace, with every moment of the day savored to the fullest.
Instead of large resorts and hotels, you’ll find quaint, family-owned shops, bars and restaurants, lush rainforests, farmers’ markets, white sand beaches, and the clearest blue water across 32 islands and cays. A private yacht charter in the Grenadines is the perfect venue to explore this tropical paradise.

Why Charter a Yacht in The Grenadines?
32 Enchanting Islands and Cays
The Grenadines is comprised of quaint, verdant, and often uninhabited islands and cays. Head to St. Vincent for its white sand shores and secluded coves. Visit the cultural center of Bequia with its galleries and artisan shops. Venture to Grenada’s nature trails and 45 beaches. Explore the natural wonder that is the Tobago Cays National Marine Park. For the ultimate escape, Mustique is one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive hideaways.
Untouched by Industry and Heavy Tourism
The beauty of The Grenadines has not been spoiled by sprawling resorts and hordes of tourists. Booking a crewed yacht charter here promises carefree sailing, harbors that aren’t overcrowded, and unrivaled views of the breathtaking surroundings. You’ll be able to have a truly relaxing time since you won’t have to compete for anchorages and beach space, or spend time in long lines for attractions. It is also the only place in the Caribbean where you can see petroglyphs that record the ancestral history.
Ecoadventurers will love the abundant rainforests in The Grenadines. St. Vincent’s Vermont Nature Trail promises memorable hikes surrounded by exotic tropical flora, and unique creatures like the St. Vincent Parrot. Measuring almost 11,000 acres, there are hiking trails for all ages and skill levels. Make your way to the Parrot Lookout on the far side of the reserve to see these majestic birds in their natural habitat.
Natural Beauty of the Grenadines islands
The Grenadines are unlike anywhere else in the world – from Mustique’s sandy beaches to Grenada’s volcanoes. Many of the islands and cays are only accessible via boat, so Grenadines yacht charters are the best way to fully experience everything there is to offer. Add the Tobago Cays National Marine Park to your itinerary, where you can get up close to its colorful coral reefs and exotic marine life. Stop for a swim on one of the pristine sandy beaches, or indulge in world-renowned diving.
Relaxed Pace and Sleepy Old-Worldliness
If escaping the fast pace of everyday life, The Grenadines offers an idyllic paradise for those craving a truly relaxing getaway. It’s a great place to unplug and master the art of liming, an important aspect of island culture where you and your charter group essentially do nothing while sharing food, drink, conversation and stories. If you’re not sure how to lime, the friendly locals would be happy to guide you along the way.
Sample Exotic Fruits and Spices
In an area of the world that is so lush and green, you are sure to find some of the freshest Caribbean fruits. Sink your teeth into sweet tropical pineapples, coconut, juicy mangos, papaya, starfruit, passion fruit, pomegranate, crisp golden apples, and guava. Breadfruit is also prominent in the regional cuisine, and is often paired with fish. The Grenadines are also known as “The Spice Islands,” so the markets are filled with the aroma of anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, turmeric and cloves.
Swimming with Turtles
During your luxury yacht charter in the Grenadines, see the world-famous green and hawksbill turtles at the Tobago Cays Marine Park. The best place to spot them is at the only natural sanctuary in the Grenadines, just off the southeastern shores of Baradal. Watch them gracefully swim by from the comfort of your yacht, or grab your snorkel gear, dive into the clear, shallow waters, and swim alongside them.
