Luxury Private Charter To Grenada
Fancy escaping the world to sail from Saint Lucia to a picture-perfect cluster of islands, many uninhabited and just waiting to be explored? The idyllic island of Bequia, part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is just the beginning.
Further south lies Grenada, the Spice Isle and your final port of call. In between, we can help you plan a perfect getaway on your own private yacht, including whatever you are seeking on your Caribbean adventure – coral reef diving, abandoned beaches, rainforest hiking, supreme sunsets, unique shopping and dining, or just the peace and tranquillity of the ocean.
Embark in Soufriere, Saint Lucia and sail south through the Grenadines on your private 44ft luxury yacht, appropriately called ‘Slow Down’, arriving in Grenada six days later. With a captain at the helm, you’ll be free to choose how much or how little to do as you sail through one of the world’s most scenic island chains, although we do provide a suggested itinerary.
Lagoon 44 Specifications
Description of Accommodations (Up to 6 people in 3 cabins)
Our Lagoon 440 is a modern twin keel catamaran in immaculate condition, accommodating groups of up to six persons in three double cabins with ensuite toilet/shower room. Chic and spacious, she is perfectly suited for intimate, customised off-island charters, whether with your significant other or a small group of friends.
On deck, there are spaces to relax and sunbathe, curl up in the shade with a book, or dive into the crystal clear ocean from the swimming platform. Comfortable seating surrounds a sturdy table for daily dining or evening card games.
Inside, there’s a fully-equipped galley so you can self-cater, or choose to invite a private chef along for the trip. The bright, spacious salon is where you’ll relax in comfort and socialise while sailing south through the Grenadines.
Menu Planning & Provisioning
Despite the many stops en route to Grenada, whether you’re cooking for yourself or having an onboard chef, we’re here to make sure that everything in the galley is to your liking by pre-provisioning the boat with the items you require.
We’ll make sure the highest quality ingredients are stocked on board before your arrival, including seasonal tropical fruits and vegetables, local beers and rums, and your customised wishlist items, and we even have a provision checklist to assist you in planning.
Arrival In Saint Lucia
Landing in Hewanorra International Airport [UVF], you’re just 40 minutes drive by private taxi from the historical town of Soufriere, Saint Lucia [13.8571° N, 61.0573° W]. Its breathtaking location close to UNESCO World Heritage Site, Gros & Petit Piton, make the island’s original capital a favourite with discerning guests who stay at luxury resorts like Jade Mountain and Viceroy Sugar Beach.
Choose to overnight on land or go straight to your private yacht at the picturesque dock in the middle of Soufriere, and we’ll set sail for the ocean adventure of a lifetime. There are many types of accommodation available on the island, and we offer complimentary pick-up from whichever location you choose.
Daytime Sailing Itinerary
Saint Lucia to Bequia 13.0117° N, 61.2272° W
Set sail from The Pitons at dawn and head south, crossing the St. Vincent passage as you start your luxury voyage. Sailing along the west coast of St.Vincent you’ll witness the effects of the 2021 eruption of La Soufrière volcano, which erupted on 9 April 2021 for the first time in 40 years, sending an ash plume 10km into the sky. It is one of the most recent volcanic eruptions in this hemisphere, and many lava flows are still visible off the coast.
Overnight at anchor off Bequia, a charming island of just 7 square miles that’s popular with yachts throughout the year, and visit the sights and sounds of bustling Port Elizabeth, with its cool cafes and local hang-outs. Bequia is known for idyllic beaches, with excellent diving and snorkelling, while the interior is mountainous with lush unexplored rainforest.
Bequia to Mustique 12.8810° N, 61.1834° W
Enjoy a VIP experience as you take a personal guided tour of this world-famous private island which is now a destination where A-list celebrities can truly unplug in peace and quiet. Commune with the locals, including a cocktail or two in legendary Basil’s Bar, where The Rolling Stones and certain members of royalty often mixed in the heady 1980s.
Mustique to Canouan 12.7255° N, 61.3239° W
Canouan is a 5 square mile island with more tortoises than residents, described by media as ‘the place where billionaires go to escape millionaires’ – there’s even a Mandarin Oriental Resort! Sailing southward, we’ll dock overnight at Sandy Lane Yacht Club & Residences where you can rub shoulders with beautiful people at the excellent restaurants and bars on Glossy Bay.
Canouan to Tobago Cays 12.6333° N, 61.3500° W
Pronounced ‘kees’, these tiny and astonishingly beautiful islands are named Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac and Jamesby. With lively coral reefs and pristine white beaches, you’ll want to swim with the turtles and snorkel in the crystalline waters while anchoring in picturesque Saltwhistle Bay.
Tobago Cays to Union Island 12.5983° N, 61.4377° W
The gateway to the Tobago Cays Marine Park, we’ll anchor overnight off this 3.5 square mile paradise, where the kite-surfing is competitive and the town of Clifton offers charming Caribbean shops and cafes. You’ll want to make reservations at Happy Island, a unique dinner spot built on conch shells and reached only by dinghy.
Union Island to Carriacou 12.4786° N, 61.4494° W
Carriacou, where the traditional wooden boat-building industry is alive and well, offers amazing beaches like horseshoe-shaped Tyrell Bay, where we’ll anchor for our last night at sea. There is excellent snorkelling and diving, and sister island Petite Martinique is worth a visit if you choose. In an old cotton mill, Carriacou Museum features exhibits that tell the island’s fascinating African, French and British history.
Carriacou to Saint Georges, Grenada 12.0561° N, 61.7488° W
Visible from Carriacou, your home port of St. George’s, Grenada is a short sail away, where you will disembark and enjoy a hotel stay before flying out from Grenada International Airport.
While on the ‘Spice Island’, you’ll find plenty of fascinating things to do, including walking around the colourful, hilly capital St. Georges, with its shops, restaurants and busy Carenage area at the harbour’s edge. Discover Grenada’s amazing artisanal chocolate industry, visit former estates and rainforests in the lush interior, or dive below the crystal waters to visit the eerily iconic Underwater Sculpture Park.
