Other Islands!

You can certainly spend a few days of your holiday and fly Liat or take a commercial ferry to one of the other islands in the Caribbean. But, if your time is limited and you only want to spend one day, you still have an opportunity to visit some of the other islands. All phone numbers are area code 758. We try to keep this updated, but we cannot guarantee that all activities will be available or on the same schedule when you arrive.

Take a day trip to Martinique on a 60-foot power catamaran. While crossing the channel, keep your eyes open for dolphins and whales. Leaves Rodney Bay at 8:30 am and returns at 4 pm. Only goes on Thursdays. Don’t forget your passport, or you will not get able to get off in Martinique! $139 US per person.

Day trip to the Grenadines

For a special trip, fly to nearby St Vincent (you can see St Vincent from Villa Grand Piton on a clear day), and tour on a catamaran or schooner around the Grenadines. Snorkel in crystal-clear waters with the turtles or bask on pristine white beaches. The tour leaves from George Charles airport in Castries at 8:30 in the morning, requiring you to leave the villa between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. to get to the airport in time. The current price (9-9-2015) is $410US per person for the entire day – but you’ll have to pay a supplement if you want them to pick you up. You might be able to negotiate a small discount from the $410 if you drive yourself to and from the airport.

If you are interested in this, we recommend you contact Serenity for the schedule and book early. I believe the tour only goes once or twice a week, and will not go if the weather is inclement or they do not have the minimum number of tour guests.
Contact Serenity Travel for more information. (We used Serenity the first time we visited St Lucia, and were impressed.)

We’ve done this before (although it was about 10 years ago!), and it was wonderful. The plane is small, though – and some earplugs are recommended equipment
