Arguably the finest sailing grounds on the planet, the Grenadines has 32 islands and cays spread over 60 miles between St Lucia and Grenada. The Tobago Cays are a highlight, with indigenous turtles and stunning fish. Lose yourself in the sandbars, coral reefs and small islands, set in stunning Caribbean seascapes.
The tropical climate makes this a popular destination – December to May is the best time to visit, avoiding hurricanes and soaring temperatures. No surprise, you will get the warmest of welcomes from the locals who are more than generous with the local rum punch – be wary, it’s called ‘punch’ for a reason!
Close to Grenada, the Gulf Stream rushes through narrow underwater canyons. This is the place to discover drift diving at its best. Oyster Charter will be able to organize the perfect dive trip with local dive companies. If you love wreck diving, you have come to the right place – the former ocean liner, the M/V Bianca C, sits in 100 feet of water. Once you have explored her, you’ll be ready to visit some of the dozen other wrecks around the island.
St. Vincent offers equally amazing diving, especially on the New Guinea and Anchor reefs, both of which are resplendent with stunning black coral. Whatever your dive level, there is something here for everyone. Do not miss the chance to dive with schools of exotic fish, old-as-the-hills turtles, delicate seahorses, eels, crabs and even sharks.
