Are you going on a holiday to the Grenadines? Spend a day sailing their waters aboard a charter boat!
The Grenadines are a Caribbean archipelago made up of volcanic origin islands located in the heart of the Lesser Antilles between the autonomous island states of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines to the north and Grenada to the south. Most of these islands are very small and their ownership is often disputed between scions of the modern aristocracy and famous rock stars. However, only ten of them are permanently inhabited.
They are characterized by multiple paradisiacal bays surrounded by palm trees, wonderful coral reefs home to a multitude of species of fish that swim free in extraordinarily blue waters.
These natural landscapes are almost completely untouched, starting with the lush rainforest which offers the possibility of being visited on guided hikes. However, there is no lack of accommodation and hospitality for tourists who come here from all over the world: exclusive boutiques, restaurants, and nightlife are an integral part of the tourist offer of these paradisiacal islands.
If you have planned a holiday in these parts and you are curious about the possibility of browsing a little around the island that hosts you, the ideal solution is to rent a boat (sailboat, catamaran, or yacht in the engine, it doesn’t matter) for a day. It will certainly be an unforgettable experience, which will make your holiday even more memorable.
We suggest below three possible itineraries to spend an unforgettable day sailing in the waters of the Grenadine islands. Of course, these are only examples that can be modified at will according to will.
3 sample itineraries for your day charter in the Grenadines

Saint Vincent – Bequia
Saint Vincent is the main island of the archipelago and in its territory take place the Argyle international airport.

Saint Vincent – Mayreau Island – Tobago Cay
This journey starts early in the morning aboard your charter catamaran to reach the smallest of the Grenadine islands, Mayreau, a peaceful retreat where the pace of life flows slowly. Snorkeling is truly fascinating at Mayreau Gardens: spend your time among the brightly colored fish of the coral reef and then have lunch with local products in the company of your loved ones on the comfortable flybridge of your vessel. If you want to hike you can go up to the top of a steep hill to reach the picturesque Catholic church of Mayreau or decide to leave after lunch towards the five almost uninhabited atolls that make up the Tobago Cays and which are part of the Tobago Cays Marine Park. It is a spectacular area where the turquoise water is great for snorkeling in search of tropical fish while, going a little further out, discovering entire coral gardens populated by stingrays, barracuda, and sea turtles. Leave for Saint Vincent for a trip with a view of the sunsets while from the deck of your catamaran you can taste a freshly caught lobster from the grill.
