ENQUIRE

Explore the Grenadines, swim with Turtles!
Join the crew of Sea Dragon for a leisurely cruise down the windward islands from St. Lucia to Grenada. On this trip there’s no overnight sailing, only beautiful fast daysails in the trade winds past jungle covered mountains and spectacular reefs. We’ll visit Bequia, a top contender for almost everyone’s favorite Caribbean island, even if we’ve never met anyone who can quite pin their finger on why. Then it’s on to the Tobago Cays, a little slice of paradise – beautiful crystal clear waters, a thousand shades of blue, and herds of friendly sea turtles more than happy to share the water with you. Then we’ll head back towards “Civilization,” stopping for the afternoon in Union Island, home to about 3,000 residents and Jenny’s famous hot sauce, home-made and ripping hot. Carriacou is next, the wooden boat building capital of the Caribbean before we sail into Prickly Bay Grenada, where people are nice and so is the spice!
