YOUR VOYAGE THROUGH PARADISE

Join us in the Caribbean,

with direct flights from

the UK.

We meet you at the

airport and bring you to

the yacht for a cooling

rum or fruit punch, as

you begin to kick back

and relax in the tropical

warmth.



Experience an invigorating sail to

the Blue Lagoon at St Vincent. Here

you can relax at the bar or hike St

Vincent’s trails and admire ancient

Arawak rock carvings.

You wake to the sound of the

conch shell calling tradition which

dates back centuries on the tiny,

charming island of Bequia and

enjoy an inspiring visit to the Old

Hegg Turtle Sanctuary to see the

endangered Hawksbill.


“Our group, which was made up of 2 families - 3 adults, 5

children spent 2 weeks sailing around the Caribbean with

Esacpe Yachting .

The food , service and on - going humour was THE best . .

Thank you Escape for creating memories that will last forever”

Alison


Just a short sail away is the exclusive island of Mustique, private retreat

to the rich and famous. Spend the afternoon on the beautiful beach and

enjoy a drink in Basil’s Bar as the sun comes down and you mingle with

the island’s residents and visitors at the lively ‘Jump Up’!



Sail into the amazing Tobago Cays. The

huge horseshoe reef that protects

these deserted islets, with their

dazzling, palm-studded shorelines,

provides some of the best snorkelling

and diving in the world. Relax for a

day and re-enact the Pirates of the

Caribbean, which was filmed here!

A short sail brings you to Union Island,

the yachting hub of the Grenadines,

home to the Anchorage Yacht Club

and numerous restaurants, boutiques,

galleries and more. At sunset relax

with a rum punch at the legendary

Happy Island!



Visit to the private Palm Island and Petit St Vincent before sailing into the waters

of Grenada, visiting Carriacou on your way to the Spice Isle, so called from the

nutmeg which fragrances the air and flavours the island’s original Planter’s Punch.

Here we can arrange a day tour for you to visit spice plantations, rum distilleries

and historic sights in the capital, St George’s, the Caribbean’s most beautiful city -

as well as exploring the tropical rain forest, swim in cool, fresh waterfalls and walk

around the volcanic crater lake of Grand Etang.


“They managed to strike the perfect balance

between relaxation, adventure, sailing and

exploration, all under the glorious Caribbean

sunshine.

We cannot recommend this trip highly enough to

anyone who wants to sail around the Caribbean

with such experienced crew and in such style.

Thank you very much Matthew and David - we

look forward to our next adventure with Escape.”

no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you

the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. Guests with existing medical
