Island Routes Expands to SVG

Caribbean excursion company, Island Routes will expand operations to St. Vincent and the Grenadines in 2024, offering 29 private experiences, from adventure-themed activities to cultural pursuits, according to company officials.

Composed of 32 islands and cays of which nine are inhabited, the archipelago’s diverse flora and fauna, which includes white- and black-sand beaches, protected coves and volcanic mountains, makes St. Vincent and the Grenadines “an incredible destination to discover,” said David Black, Island Routes’ head of global sales.

“This expansion is not just a new destination in our quiver,” said Black, “but an opportunity for our travel advisor partners to immerse their clients into the heart of the Caribbean and create immersive moments that resonate with the true spirit of travel.”

Island Routes’ St. Vincent and Grenadines experiences will include a “Montreal Gardens & Botanical Gardens Experience” highlighted by a tour of the country’s Botanical Gardens, the oldest botanical garden in the Western Hemisphere, followed by a scenic drive through Kingstown, St. Vincent’s capital.

A “Whale & Dolphin Watching Experience” incorporates exploration of the archipelago’s leeward coastline while glimpsing pilot, humpback, or sperm whales at play. The tour ends with a cruise along the black sand-lined beach of Mt. Wynne, the iconic filming location of Pirates of the Caribbean.

A five-hour “Mustique & Bequia Island Hopping Experience” begins with snorkelling at Petit Nevis and continues to Mustique, where Island Routes guides unveil the island’s rich history and iconic residences.

Guests can also opt for an immersive snorkelling experience in Britannia Bay, after which travellers explore Bequia for lunch at Princess Margaret’s Beach (Travel Pulse).
