Scaramouche

Scaramouche

A day in the Grenadines…   in a real boat…   as seen in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean”

Step aboard one of the last traditional Caribbean working schooners, 60 tons of pure island craftsmanship, – coffee and a sandwich, then hoist those sails and you’re off to the very heart of these island gems – Mayreau, Tobago Cays and Palm Island

  • Breakfast, lunch with wines, drinks all day
  • Masks and snorkels provided
  • Great for kids too
  • Leaves from Union Island daily
  • Union Island airport transfers included

Insist on ‘Scaramouche’ – the VIP tour – one of the most photographed sailing vessels in the southern Caribbean. Ask about a private charter on this lovely schooner.

Catering to the discerning traveler – no pre-cooked meals, no loud music, no roaring engines, only that days-of-old creaking of the rigging.

Book early!  Contact Erika’s for prices and reservations.

Yannis Day Tours

Yannis Day Tours offers a day tour by catamaran every day of the year – the two large catamarans can accommodate large groups – private charters are also available with advance booking. The boats are sleek, modern and comfortable.  The tour begins at 9:00 A. M. and ends about 4:30 P. M. 

After a light breakfast snack, leave Clifton Harbour in Union Island, sailing to nearby Mayreau, a small island with magnificent beaches offering a great opportunity to cool off with a swim. 

Next stop is the breathtaking Tobago Cays, where guests are served a delicious cooked lunch. This is another great opportunity for swimming and snorkeling – masks and snorkels are onboard for guests’ use.

After lunch and a relaxing swim, set off for Palm Island, a private resort island.  Time for another dip in the azure waters of the Caribbean, then back home to Union Island.  Drinks are served all day long. 

Day tour, lunch, drinks and airport transfer in Union Island – all are included for one low price. Contact Erika’s for pricing and reservations.

It’s easy to get to Union Island – from St. Vincent, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia or Martinique. A short flight in the morning transports guests to Union Island’s airport, where Yannis Day Tours is waiting to transport guests directly to the wharf.

Contact Erika’s for reservations, both flights and day tour.

The Canouan Marina Company

If you prefer to go out to sea in a motor boat, Canouan Marina has two to choose from. Located in the southern Grenadines, they offer a good variety of trips in the region.

Serenity IV, a 45 ft. Hatteras equipped with tuna tower, fighting chair and outrigger, is the perfect choice for a deep sea fishing experience, for visiting the islands in total comfort, or to do both! Drinks, snacks, bait, rod and reels (Penn international and Shemano) included in the price.

Tropical Storm is a 28 ft. Bowen Marine speedboat with 2 x 200 hp outboard engines, permanent top and cuddy cabin. Tropical Storm is perfect for snorkeling exploration. Her shallow keel allows her to anchor the closest to any reef in the Grenadines…you can see the corals right on the side of the boat!

With The Canouan Marina vessels Erika’s can organize:
• Excursions to the Tobago Cays and to the island of Mayreau (possible even in a half day charter, both of the vessels are quite fast),
• Tours to all the Southern Grenadines (Tobago Cays, Mayreau, Petit St. Vincent, Palm Island, Union Island), with snorkeling in the little reef island of Morpion and in Sandy Island, the little island powdery sand in front of Carriacou,
• A day to visit Canouan Island with lunch at the exclusive Raffles Resort (advance notice required) or the islands of Bequia and Mustique to enjoy a cocktail at Basil’s Bar or lunch at The Cotton House.
• Half Day and Full day private charters, private Half Day or Full Day fishing trips available from Union Island, Palm Island, Petit St Vincent, Canouan Island, Mustique and Bequia every day of the year.

Contact Erika’s for prices and reservations, for both flights to the southern Grenadines, and day tours. We are also a travel agency, so will arrange your regional flights and accommodation.
