Board the S/V Mandalay in Grenada and set sail for the Caribbean! Grenada is the home port for the S/V Mandalay, where your sailing adventure begins! Known as the “Island of Spice” because of the abundance of locally grown spices, Grenada is one of the world’s largest exporters of nutmeg. With a population of approximately 110,000, Grenadians are quick to share their island with unmatched warmth. Explore the island to discover amazing waterfalls, exceptional views, gorgeous beaches, and opportunities for water sports and diving. View some of the only underwater sculptures in the world, created by English sculptor Jason de Caires, on an easily accessible dive or glass-bottom kayak.

Your itinerary can vary based on where the wind and the Captain take you! Here are some of the islands that may be visited:

Visit a selection of islands including Grenada, Carriacou (Anse La Roche, Hillsborough, Sandy Island), Union Island (Clifton, Chatham Bay, Happy Island), Mayreau (Saline Bay, Salt Whistle Bay), Tobago Cays (Petit Bateau, Baradal), Bequia, Tintamarre, Canouan, St. Vincent (Young Island), St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Barths, Anguilla, St. Maarten

Here is an example of a "Typical Jammin' Day" on board the Mandalay:

6:30 am- Sunrise Breakfast
Pastries, Bloody Marys, and coffee are available for early risers. Hang out on the top deck and watch the sunrise, a great way to start the day. View marine life and birds while enjoying your coffee or bloody marys and sticky buns.

7:30-8:15 – Sit Down Breakfast
Full Service breakfast served in the dining room.

8:30- Captain's Presentation
Listen to the captain as he delivers an entertaining overview of the islands and region. Local lore, history, jokes and tall tales are all part of the fun.

9:30am- Daytime Activities Begin
Almost every island you visit offers beach and water sports activities, including snorkeling, and even swimming from the ship. If you’re on a deserted island, grab your beach towel, sunscreen, a good book, and your favorite floatie and head for the beach. You can choose from various Island excursions each day. Some last a few hours, some a full day (lunch is included). If you choose to, you can just relax on the top deck, read a book with drink in hand, and enjoy the solitude.

12:00 or 12:30 Lunch
Lunch is served in the dining room or ashore on the beach.

5:00-5:30- Snacks and Swizzle Time
Enjoy a refreshing rum swizzle and an assortment of tasty goodies ranging from local seafood to peanut butter pate and mingle with your fellow passengers.

5:30- Fun on the Top Deck
You can either relax on the top deck and watch the sun begin to set - and try to catch a glimpse of the green flash, or participate in wacky deck games.

7:00- Dinner
You have a choice of a couple delicious entrees served by your amazing, friendly, and charming crew. Dinner can be a buffet, sit down, or even prepared ashore.

9:00- Nocturnal Activities
Many choices here… dance the night away, mingle with your new-found friends at the rail, relax with your beverage of choice on the aft deck, or gaze at the stars. If you’re worn out from the day’s activities, retire to your cabin and enjoy the tranquil nights at sea.

Nightly games and activities including MANDALAY MASQUERADE. Bring a costume if you like, or make one on board.

On the morning of your last day, disembark in St. Maarten and head to your next adventure!

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
