Our Guide to St. Vincent Sailing Itinerary

Originally named “Hairoun,” which means “Land of the Blessed” in Caribe, St. Vincent is truly an authentic Caribbean gem. With a diverse landscape, a St. Vincent sailing itinerary has everything adventurous travelers could ask for – hiking trails, botanical gardens, an active volcano, beautiful beaches, and excellent diving locations. We have included all these in our St. Vincent sailing itinerary.

Made up of 32 islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines are the ideal sailing charter spot. Along with the exciting activities, St. Vincent has many beaches and cays where you can anchor and layout in the sun. Our St. Vincent sailing itinerary is designed to fully immerse you in the essence of the Caribbean and will take you through the can’t-miss sites in this amazing archipelago.

  • Getting There

    The best way to get to St. Vincent is by flying into Barbados, which has one of the Caribbean’s major airports. You can also fly in to St. Lucia, Grenada, or Trinidad. From any of these hubs you can get a connecting flight to St. Vincent, via a local Caribbean airline.

    There are two main airlines that will connect to the E. T. Joshua Airport in Kingstown, St. Vincent: LIAT and SVD. LIAT offers the most flights out of all the other major stops, but SVD could offer better options if you’re connecting in Barbados.

  • Weather

    The best sailing weather for the St. Vincent sailing itinerary is…all the time! With very steady temperatures, the average high for December – March is 28°C, and around 31°C in the summertime.

    January to May is considered the dry season in St. Vincent. However, the rainy season, which features scattered showers during the day, is also quite sunny. Don’t worry too much about hurricane season as the islands are very far south, where storms scarcely reach.

    Wind conditions on a St. Vincent sailing itinerary make for some of the best sailing conditions in the world. Winter winds are usually northeast, 15 – 25 knots, and summer winds come from the south-east, around 15 -25 knots.

  • Mooring

    Over the course of your charter, you will find many mooring options, but not many marinas. This means that fees for moorings may range from no cost to $200 EC. However, on average, prices range from $20 – $45 EC.   

    Britannia Bay in Mustique, Saltwhistle Bay in Mayreau, PSV Anchorage in Petit St. Vincent, and Admiralty Bay in Bequia are among some of the most popular spots. Read up on anchorages in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Starting your St. Vincent sailing itinerary week off in Blue Lagoon Marina, in Ratho Mill, St. Vincent – first you’ll need to check-in, get your boat stocked and loaded, and make sure you have everything you need. Nearby there is an IGA supermarket, where you can find provisions for your trip.

From Blue Lagoon you can begin your journey to Mustique, which is about a 2 hours away.

Mustique

Bought in 1958 by Lord Glenconner, Mustique is a private island which was designed to be a hideaway for the rich and famous. These days the island is owned and managed by the Mustique Company, which is owned by those who have real estate and land on this tropical paradise.

While you are on the island the Mustique Company offers an array of activities, including hiking, water sports, tennis, yoga and spa treatments. See their full offerings online. Mustique is also a great place to soak up the sun, on beautiful white sand beaches.

Tobago Cays is made up of 5 small islands and coral reefs.

Known as the “Jewel in the Crown” of the Southern Grenadines, you will definitely want to spend as much time here as possible.

Petit St. Vincent

After a few days in Tobago Cays, it’s time to move on to Petit St. Vincent. Here, you can set up on the small sand islet, Mopion, where there is a tiny coconut thatch umbrella to give some shade. Many visitors will carve names and initials into the post of the umbrella.

As the entire island of Petit St. Vincent functions as a luxury resort, there’s no shortage of activities. Pass your time barbecuing on the beach, listening to steel pan music, snorkelling and scuba diving on the reefs surrounding the island, or learn to windsurf, on our St. Vincent sailing itinerary.

Day 5

Petit St Vincent / Chatham Bay

Chatham Bay

Hopping over to the next island on our St. Vincent sailing itinerary, Chatham Bay on Union Island is where you can relax and loosen up. In addition to the kayaking, snorkeling, and diving that Chatham Bay has to offer, visitors can take advantage of the sweeping golden sand beach. An island of solitude, allow yourself to relax into the atmosphere of the day.

However, by night – Chatham Bay offers some vibrant fun at Seckie and Vanessa’s beach restaurant, where you can end the night dancing in the sand. If you’re looking for more hustle and bustle, you can take a quick trip to Clifton – Union Island’s main harbor.

Recommended Restaurants and Activities:

  • Aqua Restaurant, Chatham Bay, Union Island, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Day 6

Chatham Bay / Mayreau

Mayreau

With no proper roads, the best way to spend the day in Mayreau is hiking. The best hike will take you to the top of the hill, where you can check out the magnificent views from the church. This trek is about an hour long but it is a great adventure on our St. Vincent sailing itinerary.

As the smallest of the Grenadines, Mayreau is home to about 400 locals. Mayreau is sometimes referred to as “the island time forgot,” making it a great spot to forget about the rest of the world on our St. Vincent sailing itinerary.

Recommended Restaurants and Activities:

Day 7

Mayreau / Bequia

Bequia

Arriving in Bequia, after about a 4 hour sail, you will find plenty to do on the last stop of our St. Vincent sailing itinerary. As one of the largest of the Grenadines, restaurants and bars are abundant, in addition to other shore side activities. Here you can enjoy the beautiful town of Port Elizabeth. Or you can spend the day on a guided tour of the island, or hiking one of the many trails, that lead to a spectacular view from the top. It’s no coincidence that Bequia means “island in the clouds” which you can discover on our St. Vincent sailing itinerary.

After the day in Bequia, it’s a short sail back to Kingston, where you will end your St. Vincent sailing itinerary.
