Are you thinking about chartering a yacht and sailing the Caribbean?

Great!

Of course, we might be biased but it is hard to disagree that sailing holidays truly are a new, unique and exciting way to explore an area. And what better way to enjoy a sailing holiday than to be in complete control and charter a yacht?

This post runs you through many of the things you will need to consider about yacht chartering and Caribbean sailing holidays including what to pack and what to expect, as well as giving you information about Saint Vincent and The Grenadines along the way.

If you are looking for a unique and unforgettable way to explore the beautiful Caribbean, a sailing holiday in the Grenadines might be just what you are looking for.

With a unique combination of English and French culture, excellent food and a rich history Grenada and the surrounding islands of the Grenadines offer some of the best yacht cruising areas in the world.

Kalimba Caribbean Tours' luxury sailing yacht 'Kalimba' has sailed across the Atlantic and cruised the Caribbean from Trinidad to The British Virgin Islands. Since May 2013 she has been based in Grenada from where we now operate our luxury yacht charter holidays. 

Kalimba is the perfect choice for people who love to sail or want to take life a little slower getting from island to island. During your vacation you will live and sleep on board a yacht. Your skipper will discuss and agree the exact itinerary with you and tailor it to your personal preferences.

We love the Caribbean, and particularly the pristine Islands of the Grenadines and the friendly local population.

Sadly, though, tourism in the region is becoming increasingly focused on 5 star, all inclusive resorts and massive cruise liners. These bring little benefit to the local businesses such as guest houses, restaurants and bars.

Being 'all inclusive' there is little reason to step outside the resort, or the cruise ship for either food or drink. Local businesses set up to cater to tourists needs suffer.

Through Kalimba Caribbean Tours we hope, in a small way, to bring the life back into Caribbean tourism.

Kalimba Too at anchor Saltwhistle Bay, Mayreau, St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Visit ➺ http://www.kalimbacaribbeantours.com/our-powerboat-kalimba-too-p56 for information and to enquire.

Kalimba Too is a SACS Stratos 42 foot capable of carrying up to 10 passengers on this type of tour. This type of boat is the choice of coastguards around the world for high speed intercept work. They provide the maximum of protection and comfortable ride in inshore and open ocean conditions.

This is an exciting boat to ride in, it has a top speed of 40 knots and we generally cruise at about 25 knots. The inflatable tubes give a cushioned landing, eliminating the harsh jolting ride of conventional vessels. Kalimba Too has twin outboard engines, giving simplicity of operation and maintenance compared to inboard engines and a redundancy in the event of failure. The twin Mercury Verado 275Hp engines are exceptionally quiet.

Kalimba Too is fully equipped with required safety items, all new and certified in 2014. The boat was subject to a full out of water survey in April 2014.

Please visit our website for full details. Or email us: info@kalimbacaribbeantours.com to enquire about your Caribbean vacation.

Kalimba Beneteau Oceanis 45 sailing yacht at anchor. 

Visit ➺ http://www.kalimbacaribbeantours.com/our-sailing-yacht-kalimba-p51 for information and to enquire.

The Beneteau Oceanis 45 was a new design released in early 2012 which went on to win first prize for European Cruising Yacht of the Year 2012. Kalimba was one of the first delivered.

From May to November 2012 Kalimba sailed the Mediterranean, including Italy, Corsica, Sardinia, Tunisia, Minorca, Majorca, Ibiza, Spain, Gibraltar and the Canary Islands. She crossed the Atlantic in 17 days in November 2012 and since then has cruised extensively in the Caribbean, from Grenada to the British Virgin Islands. The yacht is now based in Grenada and has been fully serviced and maintained in exceptional condition. It is an ideal yacht for Caribbean cruising, having the largest available outdoor seating area for a yacht of its size.

DETAILS:
Kalimba has three double cabins, sleeping six people. Two more can be accommodated on the let-down table in the saloon. Our skipper takes one cabin and we can take four adults (two couples) in the other cabins. The forecabin is luxurious, full height, with plenty of cupboards and its own ensuite bathroom. Thee stern portside cabin is smaller with restricted headroom and shares a bathroom with the skippers cabin. The let-down table in the saloon would be suitable for two children sharing or one further adult.

Unlike most vessels available for charter, Kalimba is fully equipped and has sailed across the Atlantic. Most importantly to charterers is that aboard the Kalimba has no need for water rationing of showers and definitely no need to wash in the sea (those who have chartered before will understand how good this is!) 

Kalimba also has a 240V generator, which means you are not restricted to 12V…so your phones and cameras can be charged, hair dryers will work and you can use a microwave oven. There are lots of other features and equipment aboard Kalimba. Please visit our website or contact us for info.

Kalimba Caribbean Tours provide a unique way to explore the beautiful islands of The Grenadines.

Visit ➺ http://www.kalimbacaribbeantours.com/ for more information.

We have two boats: Kalimba (sailing yacht) and Kalimba Too (powerboat)

If want to have a go at sailing or fancy sleeping on board a yacht the Kalimba can offer the perfect holiday for you. Our Beneteau Oceanis 45 can be chartered for a full sailing holiday or alternatively be hired for a few days. Whether you have an itinerary in place, or are looking for some expert guidance we are fully flexible to fit in with your Caribbean vacation plans. 

For those who love to sail, or simply want to relax, luxury yacht charters give you the perfect way to explore the Caribbean your way with plenty of time for swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters.

If your preference is to arrive quicker, spend more time on the beach, at the bar, or discovering the Islands then you may prefer the Kalimba Too, our Sacs Stratos 45 powerboat. This high-speed rib will whisk you from island to island with nights spent ashore in guesthouses allowing time to explore the islands and eat and drink in the local bars and restaurants.

For more information or to enquire about your holiday please contact us: info@kalimbacaribbeantours.com

As well as Kalimba, our sailing yacht we also operate Kalimba Too our high speed RIB powerboat. Kalimba Too is perfect for thrill seekers who want to travel between the islands. Our boat will get you around the Grenadines at speed, allowing time to visit more islands, bays, beaches and secluded swimming and snorkeling spots. The powerboat whisks you between islands and, importantly, gets you to the party first!
