Meet your fabulous crew, Sam and Neil in the Blue Lagoon Marina in St Vincent (hyperlink) and get settled on board your private yacht Nemo. The marina is approximately 15 minutes from Argyle International Airport. Once you are settled we will have a guest briefing, and then the sailing adventure will get underway as we head straight out to Young Island. 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! After which we will have a delicious dinner on board (hyperlink).
We will sail to the jet set island of Mustique, giving you time for some helming practice on Nemo. Once we arrive, you can relax on board in the hammock, or have a go at snorkelling or kayaking. Alternatively, you can head ashore for an island taxi tour with Boom Boom to see where the rich and famous live. After which we suggest sundowners at the famous Basil’s Bar. After you have sampled a rum punch…or maybe two, we can head back to Nemo for our evening meal.
After breakfast, we will sail to Mayreau. We can stop in Windward Bay for lunch and then we will anchor in Salt Whistle Bay for the evening. This is a wonderful coconut tree lined beach, fabulous for taking a stroll along and for checking out the kite surfers. We will head ashore tonight so you can sample some local BBQ food.
Three short sails today. First, we will sail to the Morpion sandbank where you can laze in the warm tropical waters and get a picture on a really deserted island! Then on to Clifton Harbour, our first stop in Union Island. Here you can pop in to see the very quaint town, or head to see Mr King on Happy Island and partake in a cheeky afternoon cocktail! We will then have another short sail to Chatham Bay, which is where we will spend the rest of the day relaxing and having fun. We love this bay as it is really great for snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. There are also some great local bars to visit – Vanessa’s and Aqua. Aqua even has a beach pool you can laze in with a rum cocktail! This wonderful anchorage will be our home for a delicious dinner on board Nemo.
Just a short hop away is the stunning Tobago Cays. We can take you out to visit some of the islands in Dory the Dinghy and there is some incredible snorkelling to be had. A highlight of the trip will hopefully be swimming with Hawksbill Turtles. Our evening meal will be under the stars on Nemo.
After breakfast, we will pop to Petit Tabac, a tiny deserted island just before World’s End Reef and one of the locations in the first Pirate of the Caribbean movie – Curse of The Black Pearl. Then we have a longer sail with plenty of helm time on our way to Bequia. We will arrive in the beautiful Admiralty Bay. in time for cocktails and dinner ashore at one the many fabulous restaurants.
From Bequia, we will sail to Wallilabou for our lunch anchorage and a chance to visit one of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie sets. Then we will sail to Cumberland Bay for the evening. Here you can visit Dark View Falls or pop ashore. Dinner will be on board Nemo.
We will have a longish sail to Marigot Bay in St Lucia today. En route you will get to see the stunning St Venetian coastline before arriving in St Lucia and seeing the majestic Pitons. We will arrive in time for cocktails and dinner ashore in this charming bay.
A relaxing day in Marigot where you will get the chance to swim off the back of the boat in one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Caribbean or visit the wonderful Hotel & Marina facilities and dive into the pool. Dinner will be served on board for our last evening.
We will sail to Rodney Bay this morning and we will arrive in time for a noon (12 PM) departure. If there is time we highly recommend a visit to Pigeon Island Nature Reserve. From the top of the reserve, you can get a wonderful view of St Lucia and on clear days even see Martinique.
