The Grenadines Crewed Charter Yacht Vacations

The Grenadines are made up of a cluster of islands belonging to St Vincent. To maximise your cruise onboard Pacific Wave and enjoy more time exploring these beautiful islands, it is better to take an island hopper flight to Bequia, Union Island or Mustique where you can join Pacific Wave. This way you can enjoy 7 days of cruising these lovely islands and eliminate the long 6–8 hour sail from Grenada.

You can enjoy cruising Bequia, Mustique, Union Island, the famous Tobago Cays, Mayreau and Petite St Vincent and Palm Island.

Each island is completely different and Tobago Cays is uninhabited. Here you can swim with turtles in seas that have travelled 2,500 miles from Africa, and only the reef separates you and the Atlantic Ocean.

Mustique is renowned for the rich and famous that own villas on this tiny private island. Enjoy lunch ashore at the Cotton House and you may be lucky to be joined by Guinness, Mick Jagger’s dog. The famous nightspot is Basils Bar that overlooks the anchorage where Pacific Wave will be moored. Basil’s is famous for impromptu parties when famous musicians pop in for the evening. Mick Jagger, Robbie Williams & the late David Bowie own villas on this manicured island. The best way to see the whole island is to hire a Mule, a motorised Golf Cart, that you can drive around the island and explore the beautiful less accessible beaches and view the luxury villas.

Bequia has a turtle sanctuary you can visit by local taxi. We can arrange this for you during a crewed charter yacht vacation in the Grenadines. The island is also blessed with magnificent white sandy beaches. Pacific Wave will anchor off the stunning Princess Margaret Beach, named after the Queen of England’s late sister, who used to visit this beach when holidaying on the neighboring island of Mustique. You can stroll down the main high street in Port Elizabeth a small single lane track that has beachfront on one side and shops and vegetable stalls on the other side. Eventually you will come to the fish and vegetable market where local traders gather to sell their produce.

Union Island – visit Janti’s Happy Island built by the ex Minister of Tourism who wanted to clean up Clifton Harbour that was littered with empty conch shells. Jonti took them off shore onto the reef and started to pile them up, until he had his own island where he serves his famous rum punch. Chatham Bay on Union Island is a lovely crescent shaped beach with a few local beach bars where you can enjoy a sunset beer or cocktail.

Palm Island is a tiny private island located just off Union Island. This is a good spot to visit for lunch ashore.

Mayreau is a tiny island located just south of Tobago Cays. Here we anchor in Saline Bay and you can walk up the hill through the tiny village to the beautiful church, where you have stunning panoramic views of Tobago Cays and Union Island.

Petit St Vincent (PSV) is another private island with a luxury boutique resort located on it. This is a good location for dinner ashore off the yacht.

For guests not wishing to fly into the Grenadines we can offer a pickup and drop-off from Grenada. From here you will have a 6-8 hour open-water sail between Grenada and The Grenadines.

Take advantage of your visit to Grenada otherwise known as ‘Spice Isle’ and explore this beautiful lush tropical oasis for several days prior to the commencement of your charter onboard Pacific Wave. This island is blessed with numerous waterfalls, lakes, turtle nesting sites, the most amazing spice market and just about every tropical fruit and flower that you can imagine. This Caribbean island is famous for it’s locally grown Nutmeg, Mace and Cocoa. It now has four boutique chocolate manufacturers on the island, as well as numerous Rum distilleries. Rivers Rum still uses the old equipment dating back over 150 years and uses the energy from the waterwheel to power the sugar cane crush to start off the Rum making process. Grenada is a great island to explore for several days pre or post Grenadines yacht charter.
