Let’s get started.

Sailing a glance

Grenada is one of the smallest independent countries in the Carribean and also the most southern of the Windward Islands. 

It is actually part of a chain of islands, including the famous Carriacou and Petite Martinique. 

The island was first spotted by Christopher Columbus in 1498 and is now a leading producer of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, mace, allspice and nutmeg. 

A yacht charter in Grenada is ideal for nature lovers, who will enjoy exploring breathtaking landscapes and underwater coral reefs and seagrass beds while making friends with the native armadillos, mona monkeys, and mockingbirds ashore.

Best time to sail in Grenada & weather conditions

Grenada is a fantastic place to sail at any time of the year

The climate is steady and temperatures are ranging between 75ºF to 85ºF (24ºC to 30ºC). Temperatures are slightly cooler during the dry season, which is the Grenada peak season and lasts from mid-autumn to the beginning of summer. 

You can expect trade winds of approximately 15 - 25 knots.

Where to start your Grenada yacht charter & how to get there

Most Grenada yacht charters start from Port Louis Marina near St. George's. 

You will need to fly in and out of Maurice Bishop International Airport, which welcomes frequent, international flights from the US, Canada, UK and Germany. 

You can also try catching a connecting flight (regional airline LIAT flies to Grenada) from Puerto Rico, Jamaica, or the Dominican Republic, or reach Grenada via St Lucia and Barbados.

Transfer Time Grenada Airport to Marina: 15 mins

Grenada Sailing Holiday Tips

Don't miss out on St. George's town in Grenada, which is said to be the prettiest town in the Caribbean.

Regarding provisioning for your yacht, we recommend Foodland supermarket or Island Water World chandlery, and you will also find a bakery located near the gate of the marina.

Taxis can be found at all major pick up and drop off destinations, however, please note that rates are higher after 6 pm.

The official currency is the Eastern Caribbean Dollar; US Dollars are also accepted in most places.

Grenada is ideal for sailors of all levels! However, beginner sailor or not, the sailing conditions are a little bit more challenging than those in the BVI or the Bahamas.
