Before you go, do your research about the countries you plan to visit (St-Vincent & the Grenadines and Grenada) to make sure you  have the right documents to get in as a foreigner.


It would be a good idea to arrange supplementary health insurance and travel insurance. Carry proof of insurance coverage, and give a copy to someone at home. If you are taking medication with you, make sure you keep it in its original container.


Carry a doctor's prescription for any controlled drugs, and if you use syringes, carry a medical certificate. Leave copies at home as well.



Photocopy of your Passport's identification page and keep it separate from your passport. Leave another copy with someone at home. Make sure you have any visas you need.



Both countries, Grenada & St-Vincent-and-the-Grenadines are going to be visited during your cruise. Both countries are very safe and so very peaceful to travel into.

Criminality is a very low importance activity, especially in Spice Island (Grenada) where life is so relax & so good! The big isle of St-Vincent as for itself, might be a little more active, but nothing to worry about since we don't go there at all during any of our cruises. (only the small islands called the Grenadines islands of St-Vincent will be visit; please refer to DESTINATION section on this webpage to view the map region.)



Now although they do have both the same currency, the Eastern Caribbean Dollars (EC$); Grenada and St-Vincent-and-the-Grenadines are 2 distinct and independent countries.

Although sometimes you can manage with US dollars around, it is much more convenient to deal with EC$ (local currency of all the Grenadines). To get some cash (EC$) on arrival in Grenada Island, we will make a stop at an ATM Machine ( they call it "Blue Machine" and they accept all major credit cards) at 5 min. from the airport GND, when we'll pick you up with our chauffeur, no worries. The exchange rate is usually pretty good directly on site, so no need to change your money at home, if short in time.

Remember that you won't be able to withdraw more than a 1000EC$ per day (around 400US$) from these machine.



Clearance procedures to get in/out of them, when passing from one another, is mandatory. 

The Captain will be in charge to do all the paperworks at time, and present himself alone at each border's customs office.

(Vessel's Captain is the only authorized person to leave the boat and go onland with everybody's documents to do clearance, as the rest of the crew members & guests are confined to remain on the boat till Captain returns, as stipulate by Grenada & St-Vincent-and-the-Grenadines Laws. Thanks for your comprehension & cooperation.)

5ElementsPro Sailing Charter  will take care of Grenada's VAT Port departure Taxes (this is the only fees that will occur when traveling in the Grenadines islands). Please keep several copies of your passport with you.
