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

The main saloon has a navigational corner and living room space connected to fully equipped kitchen. Top, Front and Back decks give extra space for sunbathing and socialising.

Lessons & Coaching
We joined the cruise together with my wife who was not kiting at the start of the week but got lessons and got hooked ! Overall the cruise has been a fantastic experience, unbelievable kitesurfing, probably the best I've ever done in Union island and Mayreau. The cruise went on really well, our skipper Tomaz and Chef Polona took care of us like family and we felt at home on the boat from the first instants we boarded. from Breakfast to dinner, we kept being impressed by the food cooked by the brilliant Polona. Last but not least, the company on board was great and we literally spent some of the best holidays ever ! Wind was great and we got to kite every single day, more often 2 or 3 sessions daily for the rabid kite surfers amongst us !highly recommand !
First of all: many thanks to the captain Vincent, he made a very good job! And we have had good luck with the other guests on our boat, they made our cruise enjoyable! The remains was not. The catamaran was totally scruffy and a lot of things have been faulty, like cabin windows, bathroom bilge pump and fresh water generation. Then starting from Martinique means cruising about 20h to Union Island first day and also backwards on the last day. With only one captain cruising the whole day and night... The most important thing for us were the expectations towards the spots: They did not match. For us, only Mayreau offered a nice Caribbean scenery combining a kite spot, which was worth taking part in such a trip. Union Island with JT and Clifton and the Tobago Cays are not, there are many better places to kitesurf all over the world. All in all we have been disappointed. Tomaz descriptions and videos of these cruises raised our expectations and in reality it did not fit. We would not take part in a trip like this. --- Answer from Tomaz: Thank you for your comments, Marco, I really appreciate it. Since this was a New Year cruise, the busiest week of the season, we hosted 2 separate groups using Nautitech 482 and Lagoon 450 catamarans. We didn't experience any problems with Lagoon 450 skippered by myself, but Nautitech 482 skippered by Vince did experience minor problems which were unforeseen - and I only say minor because safety was never compromised. I spent the previous week on your catamaran and indeed, the solution for cabin windows should be improved, especially since the catamaran was only built in 2014. To address the shower pump malfunction, I'm sorry for this even being brought to guests attention as the bilge pump was solving the problem. The water-maker malfunction was unfortunate, but still producing water and it's always possible to get fresh water from nearby islands. I agree this isn't good, nevertheless, catamaran is a small house on water with a lot of electronics, filters, pumps and batteries, and as such, things brake and need maintenance. You've raised a very good point about the long sail from Martinique or St. Lucia to the Grenadines. It is not always as bumpy as it was during your period. Guests are sometimes not aware of sail intensity and duration even after reading the customized itinerary for their period. Some people enjoy long sails, some don't. For this reason we offer different boarding possibilities which also include boarding on St. Vincent or Union island. Guests mostly choose to board on Martinique and St. Lucia because of better and cheaper flights there. To maximize your vacation time we usually do the long passage at night. This means we depart from Martinique or St. Lucia in the evening and you already enjoy lunch and afternoon kite session in the Grenadines the next day. Yes, it is hard for the captain, I know this first hand and not everybody can or will do it. Not every day is like this and captain needs to adjust resting periods accordingly. The new year cruise was only 7 nights and I believe we did maximize everybody's time on water. Regarding the kite spots, in general people with directional boards like Mayreau the most, while freestyle goes towards Frigate and as for the scenic touch everybody would vote for Tobago Cays. I would say the main advantage of kitesurfing in the Grenadines, besides constant winds, is that it is suitable for everybody, from complete beginners to advanced riders. It offers many different spots with different water conditions reachable with the boat inside one hour and there are rarely more than 10 people on the water at the same time. I am happy to read people you shared the boat with made the cruise enjoyable and that Vince made a good job despite difficulties and I regret this trip wasn't fulfilling expectations of your family. Tomaz, skipper and founder
it was a perfect experience!! Nice Kitespots and places to be.Nice other guests. Nice Skipper. 2 Things where not so nice: the cook was a showmaker and did not cook for the guests but for him and the cruise should have Union Island as start and endpoint, because two Transfers in one week to go there and to come back where to much sailing...
