See the quintessential Caribbean - in style
This unique day starts with 'flightseeing' over Grenada and the southern Grenadines. From 3500 - 4500 ft in a nine-seater aircraft you can trace your island tours and spot deserted beaches on uninhabited islands. The 25 minute flight takes you to the centre of an unspoilt archipelago - Union Island . You are met at the tiny airport and soon you board Scaramouche for a light pre-departure breakfast.
is 80ft of pitchpine and white cedar; 60 tons of traditional island craftsmanship, built in Carriacou by local shipwrights. It offers the majestic feel of a big old schooner under sail: plenty of space and comfort, shade and sun.
The catering is on a par with the scenery: an excellent lunch is freshly prepared on board. There are drinks all day. We can’t promise, but you might get to swim with some turtles.
Use of mask and snorkel (no fins provided), airport taxes in both countries and hotel transfers are all included in the price
As if that wasn’t enough: this ship appeared in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ (though you will probably not recognize it… and the crew has changed!)
You visit three anchorages:
population approx. 200; one road; good snorkelling.
five uninhabited islands on a horseshoe reef, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, palm trees, snorkelling and peerless Caribbean land- and seascapes. Here you enjoy lunch cooked on the boat, with a choice of good wine, beer, juice and rum punch, dessert and coffee.
a resort island surrounded by reefs, for a final bathing session. From here it's 10 minutes back to Union Island, then an evening flight back to Grenada.
Sights, sounds, colours, the movements and creaking of the ship, the excellent catering, all mean that all the senses combine to make
it an unforgettable trip. Don’t take our word for it: ask someone who has been there!
It doesn’t get much better than this…
