Below is a 7 to 10 day itinerary for cruising in the Grenadines. If you're making plans to cover all of the Grenadines by cruising from either St. Vincent to Grenada, or vice versa, you'll need to allow yourself at least 10 sailing days plus a day or two before and after your charter just because of the availability of connecting flights.
For a shorter 7 day cruise, both Canouan and Union Island make for good day one-way destinations as they both offer luxury resorts and airports with connecting flights to major airports in the Caribbean. Making it a perfectGrenadines yacht charter destination.
