Meet your crew, Sam, and Neil in the Blue Lagoon Marina, in St Vincent, and get settled on board sailing yacht Nemo. The marina is approximately 15 minutes from Argyle International Airport. After your guest briefing, we will sail to Wallilabou for our evening anchorage and a chance to visit one of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie sets. Dinner will be on board Nemo under the stars.
This morning we will sail to the jet set island of Mustique, giving you a chance to practice your upwind sailing techniques at the helm with Captain Neil. Once we have anchored you can relax on board the yacht or play with the snorkels, kayak, and paddleboard. Enjoy an island tour with Boom Boom the taxi driver. Then have cocktails ashore at the newly remodeled Basil’s Bar, followed by a yummy dinner on board your charter yacht.
After breakfast we will have a longish sail to Mayreau, giving you plenty of time to take in the spectacular views and have a go on the helm if you so wish. We will anchor in Salt Whistle Bay, which has a wonderful coconut tree-lined beach. Take a stroll along the soft white sand and visit some of the local stalls or pop across to the next Bay and check out the kite surfers. We will head ashore for a tasty local BBQ, which can include Lobster in season.
Union Island is the capital of The Grenadines, and we will anchor in Clifton for lunch and some snorkelling off their amazing reef. If you fancy it, we can also head to see Mr King on Happy Island and partake in a cheeky afternoon rum cocktail! Then we will sail downwind to the stunning Chatham Bay for the evening and a delicious dinner on board. This is another great bay for snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are some great beach bars, like Vanessa’s, or pop to Aqua which has a beach-side swimming pool you can relax in with a rum punch.
Just a short sail away is one of the highlights of this yacht charter – the stunning Tobago Cays Marine Reserve. The snorkelling in the turquoise water is incredible. Hopefully, you will get to swim with some Hawksbill Turtles as they munch on the seagrass in the anchorage. We will have a yummy dinner on board Nemo.
A slightly longer sail as we head towards beautiful Admiralty Bay in Bequia. We will definitely be getting some tacking practice in today! Before we leave we will head around the reefs to Petit Tabac, the last island before Barbados and one of the locations for the first Pirate of the Caribbean movie – Curse of The Black Pearl. We will arrive in Bequia in time for cocktails and dinner ashore the many fabulous restaurants, so you get a chance to experience the fabulous local food.
We will have the chance for a lovely relaxing morning in Bequia today. Take a stroll along the waterfront walkway or jump in for a snorkel right of the back of Nemo. After lunch, we will then sail to Young Island for our last night’s anchorage and dinner under the stars in Nemo’s cockpit. If you have the energy, we would highly recommend a walk up 200+ steps on Fort Duvernette where you will get to see a stunning sunset!
Our last morning will see us head to the Blue Lagoon Marina in St Vincent.
