Our day with Yachtcharterbook was fantastic! The boat was beautiful and very clean. The crew were very friendly, and worked hard all day to accomodate everything we could possibly want to do. They even provided a delicious lunch.
We went to some great snorkeling locations and the sunset on the boat was spectacular.
The crew could not have been friendlier or more helpful.
I will definitely charter a sailing excursion with Yachtcharterbook again the next time in Greece.

Yacht Charter in Grenada

Yatchchaterbook grants you the exceptional privilege of exploring the alluring island of Grenada in the most remarkable way! Also known as ‘The Spice Isle of the Caribbean’, this charming island is characterized by its mountainous features, abundant fragrant plants and rare tropical flowers, crater lakes and a wide variety of animal life. You need not be told the moment you are within the Grenada borders; its attractive pristine white and black sand beaches warmly greet you on arrival. This evergreen Island has for centuries, been an abundant source of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cocoa. 
 
Grenada is a popular yacht charter destination because of its tranquil sea, beautiful climate, excellent sea conditions, and exquisite beaches. The island provides easy access for charter yachts to the Grenadines. Being a three-island state, the country consists of the islands of Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique. Grenada is the largest of the three; having a length of thirty-four kilometers, and a width of about eighteen kilometer. This charming Isalnd has an estimated population of about a hundred and twenty thousand people (120,000), with total area spanning 344 sq. Km
 
Situated in the southernmost part of the Windward Islands, a yacht charter vacation to Grenada offers a  range of itinerary options. Many sailors usually opt for a one-way sailing vacation southward from the Moorings base in either St. Lucia or Canouan to Grenada, allowing them to cover more ground and avoid sailing to windward while still offering some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere on the planet. A number of local yacht charter operators also run regular day trips around the island, and these services generally include leisurely excursions to nearby harbours and islands coupled with a variety of food items, drinks and watersports.
 
Grenada’s busy Market environment, spice plantations, rum distilleries, historic forts, and colorful coral gardens add to the island’s appeal. You might want to consider a tour around the many beautiful waterfalls nestled in the vegetation-rich rain forest surroundings, or plan a visit to the organic chocolate factory, or spice plantation. Other places you should consider visiting are the crater lake at Grand Etang National Park and Forest Preserve, and the Grand Anse Beach, a premier spot for beachcombers, divers and hikers. There’s never a dull moment at Grenada all year round. The island hosts several exciting cultural celebrations and sporting events such as Easter Round Grenada Race, The Grenada Sailing Festival, Grenada Classics Regatta and various other informal races.
 
Grenada’s capital city, St. George is a jewel of the 18th century; characterized by colonial buildings crowned by orange fish-scale tiles blended with multi-colored homes along with an emerald green backdrop. The town has a new marina called the Port Louis Grenada marina, which is designed to hold superyachts up to ninety meters (90m) in length. There are also several other yacht harbors located at the southern end of the island. St. George’s is truly a lively and fascinating city. A walk along its narrow streets is recommended; so you can have a feel of the shops, and the inviting aromas drifting from the town’s several great restaurants and bars. Another fantastic place is the Bay Gardens, enriched with over 3,000 species of Caribbean plants. 
 
On Saturdays, one of the best places to be is St. George’s Market Square; there's always so much to tickle your fancy there. Yacht charterers visiting Grenada on a sailing or motor yacht often admire the exquisite beaches. One of Grenada’s best beaches is the Grand Anse (frequently appears in Top-10 lists of the world’s greatest beaches), an urbane beach with excellent dining and nightlife, and clear white sand that stretches nearly two miles bordering a wide, sheltered bay. Overlooking the harbor to the west is Fort George; built by the French in 1705, the area offers stunning views from its hilltop location. Since a lot of the buildings here are open to visitors, you should consider having a feel yourself. Port Louis Marina, home to The Moorings base, is just across the harbor from St. George’s and is an impressive facility with many onsite amenities.
 
Snorkeling and scuba diving is another popular activity around the island or from your charter yacht with various spots around the island; including sunken wrecks and reefs. At winter, there is always a chance for whale watching. Grenada also plays host to the annual boat and regatta race called the Port Louis Grenada Sailing Festival which holds in January, every year. The Grenada Sailing Festival, in Grenada, West Indies, also attracts sailing enthusiasts from all over the world.
 
Apart from the large island of Grenada, there are a couple of equally fascinating but smaller islands you can visit during your yacht charter vacation. Such places include: Petit Marynique, Friagte Island, Diamond Island, Saline Island, Caille Island, and Large Island. You are guaranteed to have a great time visiting these Islands, especially in terms of sightseeing attractions and a number of captivating activities you’d have the opportunity to participate in, on the island. Since the origin of Grenada is volcanic, you are sure to see the volcanic formations in a significant part of the topography over the mountains. The climate is tropical and perfect for tourists. Most of the beaches are clean and they offer a perfect spot for honeymooners.
 
The Grenadines indeed has something for everyone; having a unique combination of French and English culture, exotic flowers and rare fruits, a rich history of storytelling and well-seasoned foods. It’s no suprise at all that Grenada is known as the “Island of Spice”. In addition to the lots of fascinating places earlier mentioned, your visit to Grenada isn't really complete if you haven't been to renowned sailing destinations like the Salt Whistle Bay, Mustique, Tobago Cays or the old whaling island of Bequia. You may also want to consider basking in Grenada's warm breezes under the soft moonlight. Relive history, and experience it all to the beat of Soca, calypso, and reggae, which also sets the mood for Grenada’s annual Carnival activities. 
 
The best time of year for yacht chartering in Grenada is usually from November to April. However, you can have your yacht charter vacation on the charming Island at any time of your own choosing; at will. The island has an international airport that readily ushers you in, to begin your yacht charter.  All types of yacht charters are available here including superyachts, motor yachts, sailing yachts, catamaran, monohull sailing yachts.
