With so much to offer around Grenada, you could spend the entire week cruising Grenada and nearby islands. Enjoy days filled with snorkelling and diving, as well as outings ashore to enjoy the many great restaurants and bars, sandy beaches, fun shopping and inland tours through rum distilleries, spice plantations, rainforests and waterfalls. As gateway to the Grenadines, Grenada’s southernmost location in the Windward Islands also opens the door to one-way charters through more challenging open-water passages, allowing you to experience the beauty of other points of interest in St Vincent, the Grenadines and St Lucia.

Day 1

Dragon Bay

After a nice day of sailing around the islands, pick up a government mooring ball in Dragon Bay. Enjoy some amazing snorkelling at Moliniere Point, and if you enjoy diving, be sure to arrange a dive at the underwater sculpture garden, which is rumoured to be home to a family of black and red sea horses.

Day 2

Carriacou

Sailing into Carriacou, stop at the town of Hillsborough. Built on a wonderful beach, the town offers charming seaside dining. Just a short walk from the docks, the museum features an eclectic collection of artwork and historical pieces. To get a taste of the local culture, be sure to stop into one of the many rum shops or watch the locals build traditional boats by eye on the beach. Before heading for Tyrrel Bay stop at Sandy Island for lunch. This is a great spot for snorkelling, sunbathing, beachcombing and chilling out.  Moor for the night around the corner at Tyrell Bay and enjoy a drink at the Tipsy Turtle.

Day 3

Union Island

Complete customs and immigration clearance out of Grenada; then enjoy a pleasant sail across to Union Island, which is part of St Vincent and the Grenadines. Arrive in Clifton Harbour, Union Island, to clear into St Vincent. Clifton is the island’s main town and a bustling small port that’s full of colour where you’re welcomed by warm, friendly islanders. The roads and trails offer some of the best hiking and biking in The Grenadines. Be sure to get a drink on Happy Island, an island made entirely from conch shells.

Day 4

Tobago Cays

The five deserted isles of the Tobago Cays are the jewels of Tobago Cays Marine Park, which comprises the surrounding waters as well. Horseshoe Reef almost encircles the four main cays, and beyond its protective embrace is Petit Tabac. As one of the premier snorkelling and diving locales within the Grenadines, and the entire Windward chain, for that matter, its no surprise that Tobago Cays cruising is the main attraction when exploring these waters.

Day 5

Petit Martinique

Sail over to Petit Martinique, Grenada’s northernmost island. It’s a great place to come ashore to replenish water, alcohol, ice and more. Many of the residents here live by boatbuilding, and Petit Martinique is famous for its plywood speedboats. For great snorkelling and exploring, Fota and Petite Dominique are within range of a seaworthy dinghy. Be sure to stop at Mopion for lunch on your way! Mopion is surrounded by amazing reefs to dive, and is known as the world’s smallest island with a structure.

Day 6

Prickly Bay

Enjoy your day at Prickly Bay, which is known amongst cruisers as one of the best anchorages. Customs and Immigration is available at the yacht club right in the anchorage, but if you choose to stop in Hillsborough, Carriacou to clear in, there’s no need to revisit customs in Prickly Bay. Enjoy live steel band music from the yacht club’s bar. Consider organising a land tour into the rainforest and cool off beneath one of Grenada’s many waterfalls.

Day 7

St. George’s Bay

Sail into St George’s Harbour to finish your charter at The Moorings base in Port Louis Marina. After completing the check-out process with the staff, take some time to explore St George’s. This capital city of Grenada is an 18th century gem with its mix of colonial buildings crowned by orange fish-scale tiles and its multicoloured homes, all along an emerald green backdrop. Stroll along St George’s narrow streets, perusing the shops and smelling the delicious aromas wafting out from the many great restaurants and bars. Stop by Bay Gardens, and marvel at over 3,000 species of Caribbean plants.The Carenage along the inner harbour is perfect for a scenic waterfront walk and on Saturdays the place to be is St George’s Market Square. Overlooking the harbour to the west, Fort George is a local landmark built in 1705 that offers spectacular hilltop views and is open to visitors. Now it’s time to start planning your next Moorings yacht charter holiday!

Day 1

Soufriere

After chart briefing and orientation, clear customs out of St Lucia and depart for an easy, long reach along the coast to Soufriére, a picturesque town that shares its name with a nearby dormant volcano (the only one in the world where it’s possible to drive a car inside!). Creole buildings with gingerbread trim and balconies overlooking the lanes and streets create an Old World ambience. Enjoy window shopping and dining out. Both scenic and accommodating to boaters, the waters around the Pitons are part of the Soufriére Marine Management Area and a highlight of yachting in the Pitons. The twin conical peaks of Petit Piton (elevation 2,460 ft) and Gros Piton (elevation 2,619 ft) are magic to the eyes of cruisers heading south, marking a picturesque entry into the charm of the Eastern Caribbean.

The harbour of Blue Lagoon, also popular with charterers, is within walking distance.

Day 3
