Today, benefit from the Captain's local knowledge and discover a Caribbean hideaway island in the Grenadines.
Day 3 - St George's (Grenada)
The 'Spice Island' of Grenada has a mountainous interior, dominated by Mount St Catherine, and tumbling waterfalls.

St Vincent is a good place to spot humpback and sperm whales and schools of dolphins.

For the chance to swim with turtles, visit Bequia's Turtle Sanctuary.
