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, St. Vincent has everything adventurous travelers could ask for – hiking trails, botanical gardens, an active volcano, beautiful beaches and excellent diving locations.

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 lay out 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 in St. Vincent make for some of the best sailing conditions in the world. Winter winds are usually north east, 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.
