Q: Why do you have two ports of embarkation on your web site for the Grenadines?
A: Our research, experience and comments from guests indicates the following:
Option One: Flying to Grenada is relatively easy for U.S. guests, but requires a long sail on the Monday morning to get up the prettier islands of the Grenadines. This can be up to six hours of sailing on the first day....
Option two: Flying to St.Vincent is a little more inconvenient; To get there by plane, you have to 'island hop' quite a bit. HOWEVER, it makes for a much shorter sail on the Monday morning to the first island.
Q: What should we pack?
A: For clothes; Tee shirts and shorts are about all you need, plus your swimming kit. You may want one set of casual/smart clothes if you intend going ashore for dinner anywhere.
Reef sandles and wet-suit bootees are also useful.
We also suggest bringing a decent pair of sunglasses and sun-hat.
Most people bring too much!
Plenty of sun cream is essential, and if you burn easily, or have been up in the chilly northern states (!) a high SPF suncream is recommended.
Please bring a beach towel.
Use soft luggage, it's easier to stow away during your week on board.
We provide a full set of masks, snorkels and fin's. You are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
If you get cold easily, then we suggest a lightweight summer wetsuit for snorkelling and diving.
We have a fairly extensive medical kit on board, but if you are on any special medication/ointments then bring enough for your vaction.
Medical supplies are limited in the Grenadines.
Q: What voltage electricity do you have on board?
A: We have 12v / 24v / 110v and 240v available.
12v and 24v supplies are from the yachts batteries.
We have 110v U.S. sockets in the cabins and saloon. These are only 'live' when the generator is running. (This is usually somewhere between 2 to 3 hours daily).
We have 240v available in the saloon.
Q: Will my cell phone work?
A: You will probably have to get 'roaming' set up on your phone to have service in the Grenadines. It is not cheap!
Q: What food do we serve?
A: Our chef cooks and serves a variety of fresh food, veggies and fruits as are available. Fresh fish and meats will be served during the week, again, as available.
We cater to food allergies and medical conditions that require a specialised diet. ie: coeliacs, diabetic restrictions, lactose intolerant etc.
We also cater for vegetarian diets.
Please advise us on the booking form of any medical conditions we need to be aware of.
