One Way Charter St Vincent to Grenada

For an additional fee, you can arrange a one-way charter from St Vincent to Grenada. Virgin Atlantic has made this much easier with the introduction of their inter-island flights from Barbados to Grenada and St Vincent, beginning June 14, 2023.

The service will be operated using the airline’s flagship A330-300, a release from Virgin Atlantic said. Initially, flights will operate between the islands twice a week, increasing to three times weekly from October. “With economy seat pitches of 31 inches, customers will enjoy a complimentary light snack, alongside the airline’s extensive in-flight entertainment options,” the release said.

The island-hopping service offers greater flexibility and will also be complemented by an increase in flights to St Vincent and the Grenadines, which will operate thrice weekly in the winter season. Virgin Atlantic run twice weekly from Grenada.

You can sail one-way on a 7-night charter but to get the best out of islands, a minimum of 10 nights is recommended. Here is a sample 10-night itinerary which works well with the new Virgin Atlantic schedules.

Day 1: Blue Lagoon to Bequia

After a comprehensive chart and yacht briefing at the Horizon Yacht Charter base in Blue Lagoon Marina on the southwest coast of St. Vincent, set sail for a brief 2-hour passage to Bequia, your first overnight stop. Bequia has a wide selection of restaurants to choose from with local or international cuisine. For the active there are some excellent hikes, or if more leisurely just wander around Port Elizabeth and soak up the laid-back atmosphere.

Day 2: Bequia to Mustique

After breakfast head for Petit Nevis anchorage for a swim in stunningly clear aquamarine water. Then it’s time to head for Mustique. You can tour the island on foot, electric taxi or horseback. In January each year is the Blues Festival held at Basil’s Bar – you may never know which star you might meet and get to dance with. The wonderful Firefly Restaurant and Bar offers a special welcome overlooking the bay.

Day 3: Mustique to Tobago Cays

Sail to the beautiful Tobago Cays, one of the World’s most breathtaking anchorages. The anchorage is protected by an enormous horseshoe reef which also provides amazing snorkelling. You can swim with the turtles that feed around the five islands that make up the Cays or explore ashore with the nearly tame iguanas and tortoises. In the evening you can arrange a wonderful lobster or fish beach BBQ with one of the local guides, or light up the BBQ yourself on board and dine under the stars.

Day 4: Tobago Cays


Spend the day snorkelling and exploring the Cays – since the area is protected the wealth of sea life is extraordinary. Just off the little island of Baradel is an area cordoned off for turtles to feed, and it’s an incredible experience to get close and swim with these remarkable animals. Explore the islands ashore and climb to their summits for stunning views.







Day 5: Tobago Cays to Mayreau

One-Way charter St Vincent to Grenada


A short sail to Mayreau in the morning, dropping anchor in Salt Whistle Bay, a palm-fringed semi-circle of white sand. There’s some good walking here, but most worthwhile is the short hike to the top of the hill and the breathtaking view from the Catholic Church. For dinner try Dennis’s Hideaway in the village, a short climb up the hill from Saline Bay.








Day 6: Mayreau to Union Island

Sail downwind for an hour to Chatham Bay, Union Island. This large anchorage has a sweeping beach under high hills. There is excellent snorkelling along the north side of the bay and some great walking ashore. For dinner head for Seckie and Vanessa’s “Sun, Beach & Eat” restaurant on the beach, which in season will frequently end in dancing on the sand.

Day 7: Union Island to Petite Martinique

Sail from Chatham to Clifton Harbour, clear out of the Grenadines then sail on to Petite Martinique for the night. Anchor off PSV Resort and arrange a water taxi for excellent local food at Palm Beach Restaurant on Petite Martinique.

Day 8: Petite Martinique to Carriacou

Sail downwind to Tyrell Bay to clear in at the boat yard facility. Tyrell Bay is an interesting community of locals and cruisers, and the shore is lined with restaurants and rum shops. You’ll often catch some live music at the local jump-up. It’s worth spending time exploring Carriacou, another incredibly laid-back island.

Day 9: Carriacou to Sandy Island

As your charter draws to a close, spend a day chilling out at Sandy Island and enjoy some great snorkelling. Take your dinghy or a water taxi to the Paradise Beach Club for a relaxing dinner and cocktails.

Day 10: Sandy Island to Grenada



An exhilarating day’s sail from Carriacou to Grenada. On the way pass the spectacular Kick ‘em Jenny rock and remote Isle De Ronde. You can take a mooring in St George’s or take a berth at Port Louis Marina.







Day 11: Charter ends – Port Louis Marina

Please visit the Grenada Yacht Club to fill up with fuel before taking and paying for a berth at Port Louis Marina for your noon finish. Our delivery skipper will meet you to do a debrief and to help organize a taxi for the airport for your return flight to the UK with Virgin Airlines, or, if spending some time in Grenada, your hotel.
