St Vincent Yacht Charters
Visit St Vincent on your luxury yacht charter in the Grenadines
St Vincent is the largest of the islands St Vincent and the Grenadines and a gateway for most yacht charters. St Vincent is a mountainous volcanic island, covered in the lush tropical rainforest. It doesn’t have the white powdery beaches like the rest of the Grenadines and therefore has remained largely unspoiled because it doesn’t attract a mass of tourists.
St Vincent is a great destination for active yacht charter guests – here you can hike the island’s active volcano La Soufrière, explore the dense rainforests, and many waterfalls.
In the evening, wander through its capital, Kingstown, for cobblestone streets, colonial buildings, delicious locale restaurants, and true Caribbean vibes like you’ve never had before.

St Vincent Yacht Charters – Things to See & Do
Here are some of the top sites to experience during your next yacht charter in St Vincent:
St Vincent Botanical Gardens
First built in 1765, the St. Vincent Botanical Gardens make up 20 acres of exotic plant life – from hibiscus, cinnamon and nutmeg, to mahogany trees, palms, and a historic breadfruit tree that has been on the island for years. As the oldest botanical gardens in the entire West Indies, this locale is frequented by bird lovers and history aficionados alike; the St. Vincent National Museum is onsite, which houses pre-Columbian Indian, Arawak, and Carib artifacts, stone carvings and clay works for all to explore.
Running from Kingstown to Richmond Beach, all along St. Vincent’s sheltered west coast, the enchanting Leeward Highway winds in and around the island’s clifftops, through local villages, and past black sand beaches, coconut plantations and even Carib Rock – a carved rock face dating back to 600 AD. Along the way, yacht charter guests will be able to see the island’s tallest peak and active volcano, La Soufrière; and can even take a side trip to the Falls of Baleine, a beautiful waterfall on the island’s northwestern tip.
