Grenadines and Union Island
Duration: Half Day
Enjoy this unique day tour during your holiday in Tobago, which will take you by plane and boat to the beautiful Grenadines, a Caribbean island chain which is made up of over 600 islands in the Windward Islands.
Travel in style as your flight leaves Tobago in the early morning and takes you soaring over the unspoilt Grenadines archipelago, including the mountainous Union Island, the southernmost island of the group. Look down on four square miles of volcanic landscape, fringed by stunning, white-sand beaches and seas of bright blue and turquoise, before you land. Here you will board the Scaramouche ship and set sail on the Caribbean Seas to other scenic islands in the Southern Grenadines, including Mayreau, Palm Island and Tobago Cays. Take this opportunity to relax on pristine beaches and swim and snorkel in crystal clear waters, where you may even find sea turtles.
The islands are all equally beautiful, so you will find it difficult to pick a favourite. Mayreau is the smallest inhabited island of the Grenadines, accessible only by boat. The local islanders are welcoming and the scenery is breathtaking. The best beaches include Salt Whistle Bay, with its sweeping half moon of white sand and azure water, and Saline Bay.
Tobago Cays is a cluster of five uninhabited islands, protected by the famous Horseshoe Reef. The area is now part of a designated marine park, set up by the St.Vincent and the Grenadines government. Offering pristine, white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, crystal clear waters and excellent snorkeling opportunities, Tobago Cays is a rare piece of tropical paradise not to be missed.
Described by many travellers as a “mini Tahiti”, Palm Island is a stunning private resort, surrounded by reefs. It offers some of the best beaches in the Grenadines, where you can enjoy peace and relaxation on one of the most beautiful and tranquil islands in the Caribbean – you won’t want to leave.
Lunch will be freshly prepared for you by your host on board the ship in the galley, where you can also enjoy a choice of wines, beers, rum punch, desserts and coffee before taking a well-deserved siesta after all that sightseeing! Few sailing experiences are as rewarding as a tour on the Scaramouche. Relax on the vast deck of this comfortable, spacious ship, and listen to the sounds of the sea and the creaking of the rigging. This exhilarating adventure will give you plenty of wonderful memories to take away with you.
Your return flight to Tobago departs in the afternoon.
