The Experience

The place
The Grenadines are the southernmost islands of the Caribbean and are surrounded by reefs, crystal waters and white sand beaches. The colours here are incredible and the inhabitants easily transmit their laid back friendly vibe. The choice of kite spots is huge with conditions ranging from ultra flat lagoons to offshore outer reefs.

The trip
As there are few flights direct to the grenadines these trips are generally started from one of the larger neighbouring islands. The journey to reach the Grenadines is an adventure in itself as you sail past the spectacular coastlines of St Vincent and St Lucia. The first of the Grenadines is the stunning island of Bequai. Although there is no kiting here it is well worth stopping off to have a quick look around whilst the captain clears immigration. From here the trip consists of hopping from island to island and discovering the multitude of kite spots on offer. Each place has its own charm and everyone finds their favorite 'grenadine'. Some islands have small villages with rustic bars, markets and restaurants whilst other islands are uninhabited and classed as national parks.

The Catamaran
With a modern catamaran you no longer have to be a salty seadog to go on a sailing holiday. Stable, spacious and loaded with creature comforts, you may feel more relaxed than in your own home! The new 46ft 'Leopard' catamaran offers accommodation in 4 double cabins, each with queen size bed, air conditioning and private bathrooms. The catamaran layout has been designed to maximize comfort and privacy.

Lifestyle
On a private yacht you have complete freedom to discover at your own pace the vast multitude of beaches, bays, lagoons and reefs. This adventure includes more than just kiting, it's also about experiencing a new way of life. Wake up inside a turquoise lagoon and start the day with a dip in the water whilst breakfast is prepared by the crew. Each day brings a new adventure whether it be discovering a new island, learning a new trick or catching fish for the evening BBQ.

Itinerary Details

Islands and kite spot info:

Bequai - The largest settlement and the most picturesque village. This old whaling base hosts some great local markets and a wide selection of restaurants and watering holes! Make a brief stop here whilst the skipper clears immigration. No kiting.

Canouan - Welcome to kite heaven! 'The Pool' is the very apt name for this amazing anchorage inside a deserted turquoise lagoon. Kite conditions are flat in the lagoon with waves on the (shallow) outer reef. Launch from the boat or from one of the small beaches. Colours are spectacular and you are usually the only boat here.

Mayreau - The smallest inhabited island and the most picturesque anchorage. Local rastas serve drinks and fresh lobster on the pristene palm-lined beach. A short hike up to the rustic hilltop village is rewarded with stunning views of the islands. Many quote Mayreau as the best spot on the trip. In the anchorage, there is a tiny ultra flat freestyle spot but most go to the windward lagoon to play in the waves and get high air from the kickers. Also possible to start a downwinder to Union.

Union/Palm island - Clifton village in Union offers a chance to replenish the stores. There are some great local markets and they even have internet here! In the evening the bars and restaurants are often animated with live music. The windward lagoon is ultra flat and great for freestyle. This is the most crowded kite spot and you may find another 5-10 riders here! A few tacks upwind and out of the lagoon takes you to the waves on the reef of Palm Island.

Fregate - Another favourite is just a short downwinder from Union. Fregate Island is a remote spot that offers ultra-flat offshore conditions. Suitable for freestylers and beginners alike.

PSV/Morpion - PSV (Petit Saint-Vincent) is a millionaires private island but cruisers are welcome to have a snoop around and eat/drink at the bar. The lagoon north of the island offers amazing colours and flat/choppy conditions. It is a great place to start a downwinder to the tiny sand bar called Morpion.

Tobago Cays - 4 islands make up the national park of the uninhabited Cays. The tiny islands are populated with birds and iguanas and the lagoons are home to hundreds of sea turtles and rays. Kitesurfing here is breathtaking for the scenery. Conditions are flat/choppy and there is a great left-hand wave at the end of horseshoe reef. The Cays are a good departure point for a downwinder to Mayreau.

St Vincent - Host to the film 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. Take a break on the journey home to visit one of the film sets and take a glimpse at the scenery of this spectacular tropical haven. No kiting.
