WELCOME TO BAREFOOT YACHT CHARTERS

Main Building

The Main Building      

 

 
BAREFOOT YACHT CHARTERS
, St Vincent's premier yacht charter company, is owned and operated by the Barnard family who have been sailing the waters of the Grenadines for 7 generations. This background gives us the distinct and unusual advantage of insight and local knowledge that most charter companies, no matter how experienced, simply cannot offer.



 



Barefoot Yacht Charters
is not a large charter company. We don't have a hundred yachts in our fleet (we've actually limited our bareboat fleet size to 25 yachts), we don't have 60-page glossy brochures and you won't see our full-page color advertisements in all the yachting magazines.

The fact is that most of our guests hear about us by word of mouth, or are repeat customers who have already sailed with us or are people who have been recommended to us by others.

We insist on a highly personalized service - and many of our guests are surprised to discover that such a "small" charter outfit offers facilities normally associated with so-called "premium companies" - including a satellite weather service, waterfront restaurant and bar,  gourmet customized provisioning service, private jeep rental, travel agency and villa rental service. Oh, and by the way - no, we don't have a chase boat - we have 9 private aircraft (so much quicker to respond to our guests' needs in the event that they have a problem down island).

Our full-service charter base, just a 10-minute drive from St Vincent's airport, is at Blue Lagoon, the best protected harbor on St Vincent's south coast. Bequia, northernmost of the Grenadines, is just 5 miles over the water and the islands of Battowia, Baliceaux and Mustique are visible from the surrounding hills.

Main EntranceHow to Get Here - Most guests arrive by international flight landing in St Lucia or Barbados, and then take an inter-island connection (about 35 minutes) to St Vincent. LIAT, the regional airline, runs several scheduled connections each day, and we can also arrange for charter connections on our private airline, SVG Air. LIAT also offers daily, non-stop flights from San Juan to St Vincent and these can be booked on line at http://www.liatairline.com

When you arrive - If you've notified us of your flight details and arrival time, we'll be happy to send a taxi to meet you at St Vincent's E.T.Joshua Airport. The ride to our base takes about 15 minutes and costs $ 4 per person (minimum 4 person charge).

For those who prefer to spend the first night ashore, we recommend the following:

 
   

a. Our lovely on-site suites with views of the Caribbean and Atlantic – air-conditioned, cable TV, private bathroom, Oriental furnishings. $US 99 for 2 guests, $US 154 for 4 guests, including taxes.

b. Beachcombers Hotel – 5 minutes from our marina, this is a small, very friendly, family-run hotel, on the beach and with a small pool, restaurant, bar and comfortable rooms with a/c and cable TV. $US 116 per night for a standard double, including taxes.

We’ll be happy to book either of the above for you.

Restaurant

Starting your charter - Bareboat charter guests will commence a check-out at their convenience on the morning after their arrival (perhaps after taking breakfast at our water-side restaurant). The check-out will take around 2 hours and will include an inventory check, a thorough familiarization with all the yacht's systems and a detailed navigation and chart briefing.

We carry a selection of house-keeping materials and drinks at our marina. For full provisioning, the best choices are either the Sunrise Supermarket, close to the airport and around 15 minutes’ drive from our marina, or Aunt Jobe’s supermarket in Kingstown, a 25-minute cab ride.

Most guests have completed all pre-charter checks and provisioning by noon - and are then ready to set off on their cruise.

 

Barefoot's Bar




"After half a dozen charters, we all felt that Barefoot surpassed our previous experiences. The yacht performed flawlessly and your suggestions helped make our 2 weeks more memorable than we could have hoped. I hope you know that you are held in enormous esteem throughout the islands - everyone knows and likes "Mary at Barefoot"
