The Destination

Kiteboarders or not, a kite trip across the Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean is indeed a journey in paradise. It's about escaping the cold winter, experiencing new spots every day, kite surf till the sunset, swim with turtles, meet the locals and spend the time of your life with you friends or family OR NEW friends. 
The best period for the Grenadines kite cruise is during dry season from December till May during which time weather is sunny, water is warm and winds are reliable - exactly what you want! The Grenadine islands provide amazing spots for kiteboarding, from totally flat spots to more choppy and wave as well, catering on your preferences. Spots are safe and you get briefed on possible dangers. Good thing about the Grenadines is that the islands are scattered close together so you get to spend more time on water versus sailing long distances everyday to reach them. Spots are versatile and still suited for beginners as well. If you are at least intermediate rider you might want to try doing a downwinder, launching from one spot, reaching new one and continue to ride there, while being escorted throughout the session to ensure safety.

The Experience

The Grenadine islands provide amazing spots for kiteboarding, from totally flat spots to more choppy and wave as well, catering on your preferences. Spots are safe and you get briefed on possible dangers. And the scenery... it's just breath taking. You can launch your kite from sandy beaches close to the boat or straight off the boat. If you want a break, you can easily land your kite of the boat, eat some snack and continue when ready - crew will help you do it safely and without any unnecessary swimming.

This is the place where you can kitesurf among turtles, ride around small sandy islands...too small to even land a kite... with crystal clear turquoise waters, you can ride above the reefs or just around the boat so we can do some nice photos and drone footage of you. After session you can put a mask on and snorkel around the coral reefs enjoying rich sea life just few meters away from the boat or take the stand up and paddle board and make another workout. Or just ask your chef for another rum-punch, read the book and enjoy the view!

To put a different perspective on your new experience, drone is used all the time capturing your activities in this truly amazing landscape. Each evening you would all sit down and enjoy the footage. Private short movies can be edited upon request, making this vacation even more memorable and easy to share with your friends.

Another good thing in the Grenadines cruise is that you always have a chance to go ashore, you can always walk across sandy beach, make some photos of your friends, have a drink from small local bars close-by and find company of likeminded people. On some islands you can climb a hill and see iguanas everywhere, some islands are perfect for sunsets and some are good to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.

Downwinders

For more advanced and confident riders there are amazing downwinders from island to island almost everyday. Downwinders range from 5-10km.

Kiteboarding Lessons

In case you need lessons and the rest of the group doesn’t, we have full time kite instructor on board which gives you more flexibility to continue to discover new location everyday without the group having to compromise anything. Lessons are always done one-on-one to ensure you progress quickly and safely.

Besides regular kite gear we also keep foil board on board if this is something you want to try. It's a foil with 4 different masts sizes with sole purpose of keeping you safe and progressing with ease. With our instruction and support it takes less than 20 minutes before your first successful fly ride and from there it only gets up - possibly reaching the highest mast by the end of the cruise, how does that sounds?

Other Activities

Kiteboarding is our main activity with number one priority. After session or at no-wind time we can offer stand-up-paddle (SUP) boards so you can discover bays more in details or just do some more exercise. Subglider-ing under water is another experience you don’t want to miss out, it is safe, fun with no skills required. Snorkeling activity is possible at each anchor spot in addition we can visit reefs with more seawater life, equipment set is available on-board for each guest. We can organize scuba- diving experience, do exploring while hitchhiking, visit local bars and much more. In Tobago Cays you can swim with turtles and manta-rays and visit small sandy islands with more iguanas that you can count. Long walks on sandy beaches are possible on multiple locations and you can do yoga on-board or off-board. Sailing is another activity you can get more involved if interested and there is a shing gear available in case you feel like shing.

If you are looking for a good party where the whole island is dancing on the street than you should for sure book the New Year’s period, it’s one of the kind. If you miss that one than you still have a chance to visit one of the full moon beach parties that take place every month with good vibes and chance to dance organised by Jeremy Tronet, he would also put-up a kite show for you to enjoy. You can find a bar open on most locations - a famous one is called “Happy Island” where we would usually enjoy the sunset while chef is preparing dinner.

Getting There

If these islands was easy to reach everybody would be here and this would really change the overall experience which brings us to the question how do you get here? Mostly people prefer flying to Martinique or St. Lucia which brings you about 100 Nautical miles away from the Grenadines meaning we will still need to sail for 15 hours before reaching the Grenadine islands. If you need sailing miles our skipper can sign your log book besides It is never a boring sail as we use this time to get to know each-other, get to know what are your expectations as in the meanwhile we are catching fish, sail with dolphins and admire magnificent Pitons of St. Lucia and landscape of St. Vincent. If you're not so keen on sailing down you can opt to land in Grenada or St. Vincent or ask us to organise a private flight for you to land right on the spot. We would be happy to answer your questions so please drop us a line and we go from there!

Sample Itinerary
Day 1- Clifton

The kite spot on Union Island is a truly amazing flat water spot, have a quick kite session or go explore the island by bike or hiking up to an incredible 360 degree view point. Later we will take the dinghy over to Happy Island for a rum while watching the sun go down before dinner on the boat.

Day 2-Frigate

This is another amazing flat water spot on Union Island, great for beginners as well as practising freestyle. The wind blows offshore so sessions will be supervised by motorboat. Later we will visit Ashton village by boat, a great starting point for hiking in the mountains or visiting the local rum shops.

Day 3- Mayreau

The catamaran will be anchored inside the protected bay just a few meters from shore. The wind blows onshore creating small chop in this area. Later on we will get a tour around the island from local guide Kevin. You can also visit the local bars or explore the bay by paddle board.

Day 4- Tobago Cays

Tobogo Cays is a National Park and also an amazing kiteboarding playground- certain rules apply. This is a great snorkelling location so watch for snorkelers under water and turtles come up for air! Take a short walk onto the island to see the iguanas. We have an amazing lobster dinner planned so save your appetite.

Day 5- Mopion

Canouan is home to the Caribbeans longest barrier reef. The sea breaks here offering an awesome playground for wave riders. We can take a car tour around the island and up to the highest peak on the island for another incredible view. There is a dive shop on the island if you would like to see the reed from below.

Day 6- Mopion

Before dropping anchor at a quiet overnight location behind Petit Saint Vincent Island we will stop close to Mopion Island, one of the world's smallest Islands. This spot is somewhat choppy with incredible turquoise water. The island offers a great spot to land your kite for a break, especially if you rode from Union Island.

Day 7- Petit Tabac

The spot is rather choppy and flat just under sandy peninsula with the overall scenery of palm trees and sandy beach is amazing. No wonder it was a movie set for the Pirate of the Caribbean. Captain Jack Sparrow was marooned here with Elizabeth Swann, perhaps you remember Elizabeth setting fire to Jacks stash of rum...

Itineraries are not binding and the actual itinerary can be adjusted by the host because of unforeseen circumstances or other reasons!
