Next Day Sail – Wednesday 13th March 10am-4pm
FULL DAY BOAT TRIP
After a pick up at 10am, normally at Port Louis Marina it’s time to raise the sails (guest participation encouraged!!) for a leisurely cruise, first south along Grand Anse Towards Point Saline then ‘tacking’ or ‘gybing’ north towards our lunchbreak stop anchored in one of the many secluded bays to be found north of St George’s
After the opportunity to snorkel, marvelling at the beautiful marine life (or just luxuriating with one (or 2?) of our famous ‘Vender Bender’ rum cocktails onboard) it’s lunchtime. Not the normal burger inna bun on Vendia, we go that little bit further in keeping the traditional theme going with time honoured sailors fare such as fish chowder, beouf borginon or our special pork casserole (vegetarian option is always available)
After lunch watch (or help) the crew ‘jump to it’ raising the anchor then hauling the beautiful tan coloured gaff rigged sails with ropes and wooden blocks just as the sailors of old did it.
Sail out to sea and marvel at the true beauty of this island seen from it’s very best viewpoint, the deck of an old wooden sailing ship.
Drop off back in Port Loius Marina around 4pm.
HALF DAY BOAT TRIP
Pick up normally at Port Louis Marina 10am then see the crew hoisting the sails. Cruise along the West coast of Grenada and enjoy some of the most magnificent views of the island.
A light lunch of nibbles and snacks will be served whilst sailing before anchoring in a secluded bay (often times we will be the only boat there) with the opportunity to snorkel with the fishes that abound in these waters. “It’s like swimming in a tropical fish tank” Up anchor and sailing again whilst savoring the unique flavour of our very own ‘Vender Bender’ rum cocktail. (that recipie is our secret!)and back to St. Georges for a 2pm drop off back in Port Louis Marina.
Pick up at Port Louis Marina at 4pm. See the crew as they ‘sweat and tail’ the sails aloft in the time honoured fashion (you can help if you like…), all jobs onboard Vendia are done in the traditional way.
Then we sail south towards Point Saline along Grande Anse or north past Grand Mal Bay depending on weather conditions and the Captain’s whim taking in the natural beauty of Grenada seen from it’s most romantic viewpoint, the deck of a wooden sailing ship.
Whilst our crew work the boat you will enjoy a glass or two of bubbles and some delicious nibbles (non alcolholic drinks also available) and watch the sun set into the Caribbean sea before disembarking back at Port Louis Marina ready to enjoy the rest of your evening ashore
