If you cannot acquire direct flights, such as in the off season, most guests arrive by international flight landing in Barbados, and then take an inter-island connection (about 40 minutes) to St Vincent. LIAT, the regional airline, runs several scheduled connections each day, as does our own airline, SVG Air . LIAT also offers daily flights from St Lucia, Grenada and San Juan, Puerto Rico to St Vincent.
If you arrive by an international flight landing in Barbados, you may take an inter-island connection (about 40 minutes) to St Vincent. From Barbados to St Vincent, you will need to connect with either SVG Air or LIAT

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 Argyle International Airport. The ride to our base takes about 25 minutes and costs $6 per person (minimum 4 person charge). Someone will be here to meet you at our marina and settle you into your shore accommodation or aboard the yacht (sleep-aboards available only if guests arrive before 7.00 p.m.).
Our full-service charter base, just a 25-minute drive from St Vincent’s airport. We are located at Blue Lagoon, the best protected harbour 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.
Barbados (BGI) is usually the best transit airport as there are regular non-stop flights to St Vincent.
From North America, there are daily non-stop flights to St Lucia (UVF) and Barbados (BGI) from New York (JFK), Miami (MIA)) and Toronto (TOR) – see note above about direct, non-stop flights from Toronto.
From Europe, the best route is usually from London (LGW) to Barbados BGI (British Airways and Virgin Atlantic fly daily), then connecting to St Vincent (SVD).
Both from North America and from Europe, Trinidad (POS) is another possible hub, though note that this route may require guests to overnight there either on the way out or on the way home and there have also been instances of the connecting flight from Trinidad to St Vincent being cancelled.
Other possibilities from Europe would be from Paris (PAR) or Amsterdam (AMS) to St Maarten (SXM), connecting to St Vincent (SVD) with LIAT
San Juan (SJU) is a possible hub, but the cost is likely to be higher than routing via Barbados (BGI)
If flying via St Lucia, remember that there are two airports there. Most international flights arrive at and depart from Hewanorra International Airport (UVF) but check with your airline to be sure, as (UVF) is an expensive, one-hour taxi ride from the other airport, George Charles (SLU).
Despite some web sites advertising a ferry service, there are currently (May 2017) NO international ferry services to or from St Vincent.
