Grenada Yacht Charters
Tucked away in the warm waters of the Southern Caribbean, Grenada is a tropical oasis, known for its nutmeg and mace industry, exquisite beaches, and incredible yachting. This island is located just south of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and as such, Grenada yacht charters are an ideal way to explore the Windward Islands.
Grenada’s natural landscapes serve as the backdrop for magical yacht charters and provide a playground of adventure for visitors. Snorkeling vibrant reefs, wreck diving, deep-sea fishing, island hopping, and hiking the jungled trails of Grand Etang National Park are all incredible experiences you might add to your itinerary. Yet, beyond the stunning scenery, Grenada retains a cosmopolitan air in St. George’s and the cities of the outlying island, with an assortment of upscale eateries, relaxing spas, and laid-back beach bars for shoreside escapes.

Take to Grand Anse’s gentle surf for swimming, snorkeling, or standup paddle-boarding.

Known for its original creations in about 4 meters of water, the park is the perfect place for beginners and experienced snorkelers alike to enjoy a day in the water.
Wreck Diving – Grenada is home to more wreck dives than any other island in the Caribbean, as well as 30+ other world-class dive sites. The wrecks – like the cruise ship, Bianca C, and the historic sloop Buccaneer – provide photo-worthy diving, and most are well intact and in 20-40 meters of water.
Annandale Falls – One of the most beautiful falls in the Caribbean, Annandale drops 30 feet into a large pool that’s perfect for a refreshing swim. The falls are located just outside St. George’s making it a perfect escape during a tour of the capital city.
Seven Sisters Falls – Nestled into the mountainous rainforest in Etang National Park, the Seven Sisters are exceptionally beautiful. There are several pools you can relax and refresh in after the short 45-minute hike to the falls.
Tour Belmont Estate – Explore Grenada’s history on a tour of Belmont Estate. This working 17th-century plantation provides a chance to see nutmeg and cocoa production up close and take a step back in time.
