St. Vincent & The Grenadines
Virtually untouched by industry and heavy tourism, St. Vincent and the Grenadines feature unspoiled natural beauty that most visitors describe with just a single word: Idyllic.
Of these 32 enchanting islands located in the Caribbean Sea’s Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, only 9 are inhabited. St. Vincent, the largest, serves as your gateway to the Grenadines—including Mustique, Bequia and Union. Our base is conveniently located at the Blue Lagoon Marina on St. Vincent’s southern shore.
From there, you can explore the wonders of St. Vincent—from the tip of its 4,000-ft active volcano, La Soufrière, right down to its golden, black and white sandy shores. Many of the island’s oldest forts appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. St. Vincent is also home to the hemisphere’s oldest botanical gardens, which comprises 20 acres of lush tropical plants, trees, flowers and exotic birds. With its fascinating history, rich culture and West Indian cuisine, St. Vincent offers something for everyone.
Next, set sail for a week or two of cruising the stunning turquoise waters of the Grenadines, a string of verdant islands and islets dotted with sandy beaches and palm trees swaying gently in the ever-present trade winds. Learn about the old whaling culture in Bequia, experience the trendy atmosphere of Mustique (known as a playground for royalty and the rich), or head for the unspoiled, remote Tobago Cays Marine Park to snorkel colorful reefs teeming with tropical fish of all sizes.
Other incredible island stops like Mayreau, Canouan and Petit St. Vincent have their own distinctive flavor and allure. Union, sometimes called the Tahiti of the West Indies, is the southernmost of the Grenadines and well worth a visit. Wherever you sail, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable Caribbean dream vacation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
