Grenada yacht charter

Grenada is an untapped treasure of the Caribbean islands, one which many sailors never experience. The primary island of the Grenadines, and the southernmost of the Windward Islands, this sliver of paradise is rich in culture, food and natural wonders. French and English influence has brought unique cultural distinction, but you’ll be most impressed by the exotic foods and vast open waters to explore on your Grenada yacht vacation.

12 Knots Yachting Club offers catamaran, bareboat and luxury yacht charters for all destinations across the Caribbean. We recommend Grenada for those who want to venture down the path less traveled, as Grenada offers a unique island culture and a variety of uninhabited islands within a day’s sailing trip away. But first, learn about the unique characteristics of this Grenadine island that make it a favorite among seasoned sailors.

Nature and Landscapes

Grenada is situated in the southern part of the Caribbean, close to the coast of Venezuela and Trinidad. The warm southern seas and year round sunshine bring a varied ecosystem to these islands. Grenada’s landscape is characterized by steep cliffs, volcanic rock, vibrant tropical forests and pristine waters on the beach.

The national bird of Grenada is the Grenada dove. This species is endemic to Grenada, and lives in the small areas of dry forest on the island. However, human territory expansion and the subsequent deforestation of these rare suitable habitats has diminished the Grenada dove’s population to the mere hundreds. These birds are a rare find on the island, and a birdwatcher’s treat. You may be able to spot one during your sailing vacation if you take a hiking tour of one of Grenada’s national parks.

Most of the Caribbean islands formed from volcanic eruptions, and Grenada is no exception. Most of the volcanoes on Grenada are inactive, and have formed beautiful mountain peaks with fertile soil below. Mount St. Catherine is the highest peak, reaching 840 m(2,760 ft) at the summit. The rainfall on these craggy peaks create beautiful rivers and waterfalls that decorate the rainforests and provide unique habitat for Grenada’s native animals.

During your yacht charter in Grenada, explore several grand waterfalls and hot springs of the island. Royal Mount Carmel Waterfalls is the largest, beginning on a peak over 70 feet above the river below. Concord Falls is another must-see natural waterfall, with several pools perfect for an afternoon swim. River Sallee Boiling Springs features six hot springs, reaching a temperature of 35°C (95°F). These springs are unique in that they are saltwater, even though they reside over a mile inland. Both the hot springs and waterfalls provide natural beauty any island adventurer will enjoy.

History

Grenada has a rich historical background, dating back to the indigenous Arawak people. This tribe inhabited most of the Caribbean islands, but were replaced by the Caribs. Origins of the name "Grenada" are uncertain, but historians believe that Spanish conquistadors provided the namesake after the city of Granada. While the Spanish never settled here, it was likely that Columbus spotted the island on one of his subsequent voyages to the Caribbean after his first discovery of land.

Colonization of Grenada did not happen until the late 1600s, due to significant resistance from the Caribs. The indigenous islanders were able to maintain their land until 1650, when the French arrived to settle and build plantations. Like most islands, Grenada was passed between British and French control until 1763, when the Treaty of Paris gave France control of it and several other southern islands.

In the late 1950s and 60s, Grenada was a member of the Federation of the West Indies. This federation of British West Indian colonies lasted for a brief period, and in 1967 it named Grenada an Associated State; they were in control of internal affairs but still a part of the Federation. However, Grenada pushed for full independence, and in 1974 was granted recognition as a sovereign nation. It is one of the few islands of the Caribbean that won their sovereignty. Many are still considered French or British territory.

Culture

Grenada’s main cultural attraction for tourists is the food. Known as the “Spice Island of the Caribbean,” Grenada exports cinnamon, cloves, mace, ginger, allspice, citrus peels, and nutmeg to all corners of the world. Grenada exports 20% of the world’s supply of nutmeg. This fragrant seed, which is crushed into a spice, is even portrayed on the Grenadian flag. Many sailors take back these exotic spices on their trip, as they can find them fresh, locally grown, and oftentimes at much cheaper prices than when they are sold in stores.

In addition to spices, Grenada is a major exporter of cocoa and coffee. The Grenada Chocolate Company, which grows its own cocoa to produce fine dark chocolate, has paved the way for “tree to bar” production of organic chocolate. The company provides jobs for a great number of people in the village of Hermitage, St Patricks. Their chocolate and the products of other local growers are sold at an annual chocolate festival, which has brought sailors and foodies to the island for several years in a row.

Traditional Grenadian food uses a mix of African, Indian and Carib Amerindian influence. Most restaurants use heavy spices to create curries and sauces for seafood and fresh, local veggie plates. The "oildown" is the famous meal to have on the island. The oildown cooks pork, salt beef, or chicken, and dumplings in a creamy coconut sauce. The meat and dumplings are submerged until only a small bit of coconut oil is left in the pan. Fruits and vegetables including breadfruit, banana, callaloo, yams and potatoes are also added to the famous dish.

What to See and Do

Grenada is an eclectic island with plenty of natural and cultural wonders to experience during your sailing vacation. If you want to spend some time on dry land during your Grenada yacht charter, take a trip to Grand Etang National Park and Forest Reserve. You’ll find several hiking trails, and may spot a Grenada dove, armadillo, lemurs, monkeys, manicou, and other rare species. Grenada is a haven for many exotic animals, and sailors may be lucky to spot one during a sailing vacation while on land or on the boat.

One you’ve seen everything you want on the island itself, there are several nearby islands you can visit during your yacht charter vacation. Within a day or two, you can sail to Carriacou, Petite Martinique, or St. Vincent. These sparsely populated islands are rich in beauty. For miles you can see the lush forests,  tropical flowers, and beaches that make the Caribbean one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world.

Further south, more experienced sailors can reach the Tobago Cays of The Grenadine. Five uninhabited islands comprise the Tobago Cays, and are surrounded by a grand horseshoe-shaped coral reef. If you visit Tobago Bay, you must bring snorkeling or diving equipment, as the reefs are home to hundreds of rare and beautiful sea creatures.

The most unique attraction to Grenada is hands-down, the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park. A short boat ride from the Grenada shore will take you to the most unique snorkeling experience you’ll ever have. Artist Jason deCaires Taylor created over 65 sculptures of Grenada natives, and placed them underwater at a depth of up to twelve meters. This is a must-see for anyone visiting Grenada, for you may never see another underwater museum quite like this.
