Our cruising grounds include the Leeward and Windward islands of the Caribbean, ranging from Anguilla to Grenada,
a 500 mile stretch. This encompasses such islands as Antigua, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St.
Vincent, and the Grenadines.
Indulge yourself in this Caribbean experience where beautiful tropical islands are never far from sight and the
trade winds carry you over an ocean full of adventure and history.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines offer some of the best secluded beaches and snorkelling, and a little farther
south the famous Tobago Cays are home to some of the clearest waters of the Caribbean. Here you will find many
uninhabited islands and shallow, colorful reefs teeming with tropical fish and turtles - a sanctuary for snorkelers.
You might even claim an island as your own for the day and just relax on your throne of sand while overlooking
your Caribbean kingdom in all its glory.
With all this to choose from, and considering there are literally hundreds of anchorages in St Vincent and
the Grenadines alone, we understand it may be difficult planning your itinerary, which is why we would like
to suggest the tried and tested sample itineraries below:

After breakfast, an easy hour and a half sail will bring us to
Mustique ~ a famously idyllic island with magnificent beaches and

along the beach in the cool of early evening.
