Of these 32 enchanting islands located in the Caribbean Sea’s Windward Islands of the Lesser Antilles, only 9 are inhabited. St. Vincent, the largest, is your gateway to the Grenadines. Our base is conveniently located at the Blue Lagoon Marina on St. Vincent’s southern shore.
From there, you can explore the wonders of St. Vincent—from the tip of its 4,000-ft active volcano, La Soufrière, down to its black-and-white sandy shores. St. Vincent is also home to the hemisphere’s oldest botanical gardens, comprised of 20 acres of lush tropical plants, trees, flowers and exotic birds.
Set sail for the stunning turquoise waters of the Grenadines, a string of verdant islands and islets featuring sandy beaches and palm trees which sway gently in the ever-present trade winds. Other islands—such as Mayreau, Canouan, and Petit St. Vincent—have their own distinctive flavor and allure. Union, sometimes called the Tahiti of the West Indies, is the southernmost of the Grenadines and well worth a visit. Wherever you sail, you’ll enjoy an unforgettable Caribbean dream vacation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
