grenadine inter island travel

Jump to last reply

I have a couple of questions regarding traveling between the islands in the Grendadines.

We are flying into Barbados and from there going on to Union Island.

I got a price quote from SVG for $175 per person for that flight? Is that a fairly decent price? I realize I don't have a lot of options so that may be my best deal.

Next we are leaving Union and going to Bequia. Does anyone fly from Union to Bequia without costing a fortune?

Another option may be to fly SVG from Union to St. Vincent and then take the ferry over to Bequia. We'd have to do that either early in the morning or towards 5:00 as SVG only has a few flights.

How far is the ferry from the airport? How much time should I leave to get to the ferry.

After our stay on Bequia we are staying in St. Vincent. Probably best would be to take the ferry back. My only problem there is it will be a Sunday. The Sunday ferry from Bequia departs at 7 or 7:30 am, with the next ferry not leaving until 4:30. I can't see getting on a ferry at 7 in the morning after our last night in Bequia, so may have to go later. Any chance of catching a boat ride with someone during the day who would be headed that way?

Lastly how is the ferry crossing from St. Vincent to Bequia. I love the idea of sailing, but am a terrible sailor as I suffer easily from sea sickness. I will deal with it, but just want to know the ride will be like.

Sorry for all the questions, but any help or input would be very greatly appreciated.
Only 171 more days until we go!!!
