Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Yacht Charters

The island nation of St Vincent & the Grenadines is comprised of over 32 islands of unparalleled beauty – from rich, mountainous rain forest to palm-fringed beaches and huge coral reefs. St Vincent itself retains a large element of wildness due to its steep and hard-to-access interior, topped out by a 3,000ft cloud-shrouded volcano.

Agriculture forms the mainstay of the economy with crops such as bananas growing in abundance on the verdant slopes. St Vincent was originally inhabited by fierce Carib Indians who resisted any European settlement until the French got a foothold in 1719. The island changed hands between French and English various times through the Napoleonic Wars before becoming a British colony from 1783 onwards. St Vincent & the Grenadines obtained independence from the UK in 1979 – the last Caribbean islands to do so.

The Grenadine islands strung out to the south of St Vincent have a long history of seafaring and are fiercely proud of their heritage – events such as the Bequia Easter Regatta help to keep alive the local traditions of boat building and sailing. Mustique was an abandoned sugar plantation island until purchased privately in 1958 and brought to fame when Princess Margaret built a Caribbean retreat on land gifted to her.

When To Go













The best time to visit St Vincent and the Grenadines is between February and April, which are the driest months. However, the islands enjoy a hot, tropical climate all year round.

May to June and November are shoulder months, making things cheaper to attract travelers. The peak season – December through April – lures European visitors with its warm and dry Caribbean temperatures.


Regions Worth Highlighting


Bequia is an enchanting island just two hours sailing south of St Vincent. Bequia will make you feel that you’ve discovered the real Caribbean – an unspoiled mix of old and new with a laid-back way of life that will soon have you relaxed.

The main anchorage, Admiralty Bay is deep and well protected by the surrounding hills. It’s worth spending a day here to explore – old traditions of boat building, fishing and sea trade continue, and the turtle sanctuary is worth a visit.


Many Grenadine anchorages were frequented by pirates who used their sheltered bays to hide ships and treasure.

Mayreau consists of one sleepy village and several stunning beaches including Salt Whistle Bay – one of the most photogenic anchorages in the Caribbean. Union Island acts as the service centre for the southern Grenadines and gateway to Carriacou just south. Two private resort islands, Palm Island and Petit St Vincent complete the line-up.

Young Island

An Eden of powder-white sands, tropical gardens, azure seas, and the perfect combination of privacy, natural charm and luxury. Deliciously indulgent, relaxing in the extreme. We know you will love it here.

Known as the ‘Critter Capital of the Caribbean’, Young Island is an underwater photographer’s paradise! With fascinating coral reefs, a wealth of colorful fish and marine creatures, snorkeling and scuba diving is an absolute must-do.

Why Charter a Yacht in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines?

True Yachting Paradise

A necklace of 32 islands and cays in the secluded Southern Caribbean, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) boasts a verdant topography, pristine beaches, and turquoise waters that are ideal for sailing enthusiasts. This constellation of close-knit islands is one of the most sought-after sailing destinations in the world and has naturally become a hub for yachts, schooners and all manner of sailing vessels.

Plot your course through tranquil atolls stretching over 40 miles, exploring islets populated by a handful of palms, seabirds and turtles. St. Vincent and the Grenadines offers an idyllic setting for salty dogs to amateur sailors eager to track the wind. Drop anchor at a remote sandbar for a picnic lunch, or moor at one of the nine inhabited islands – St. Vincent, Young Island, Bequia, Mustique, Canouan, Mayreau, Union Island, Palm Island or Petit St. Vincent; or discover the uninhabited remote Tobago Cays, a protected marine park made up of five islets bordered by a giant horseshoe reef. The Tobago Cays offers some of the Caribbean’s best snorkeling or a beach barbeque is always an option. Movie buffs may recognize Walliabou Bay anchorage in St. Vincent which was the main site of the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: The curse of the Black Pearl.

Discover a community rooted in a rich marine history on Bequia, the exclusive celebrity scene on Mustique, the deserted crescent beaches and sleepy hilltop village in Mayreau. While individualized itineraries can be designed beforehand, a typical one week sail will cover approximately 90 miles of cruising with distances between islands ranging from two to five hours. While breakfast and lunch are typically taken aboard, there are a host of local restaurants on the inhabited islands that offer a great alternative for dinner.

World-Class Snorkeling and Diving

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) is one of the last untouched corners of the Caribbean. Blessed with verdant volcanic slopes, welcoming locals and remote island outposts that stretch across 70 miles of clear blue sea, it is a place where savvy scuba divers and island hoppers alike can find adventure both above and below the sea. Underwater, SVG is known for its rare and exotic marine life and has been coined the ‘Critter Capital of the Caribbean’. It boasts critter diving unparalleled outside the Coral triangle. Among the 32 islands and cays that comprise the destination, scuba divers can explore more than 100 dive sites, including adrenaline-pumping drifts, blissfully uncrowded coral gardens, and dramatic submarine lava flows that coalesce into a wonderland of caves, canyons and walls.


Natural surroundings are still untouched by development and are a great backdrop for Eco-Adventure experiences. Hikers can trek to an active volcano, to secluded waterfalls for a quick dip or to uncrowded pristine beaches hidden by lush foliage. Jeep safaris, bike trips and walking tours thrust explorers into parts of the islands that few people have ever laid eyes upon. The beaches, black, gold or white sand, are natural experiences in their own right, with long deserted shorelines dotted by palm trees to explore. 

As the largest of the islands, St. Vincent has the most to offer in the way of land-based natural attractions. From hiking trails to historic gardens, the activities here practically demand that eco-tourists spend at least a day or two exploring the island’s interior.
