Cruise in the lower Caribbean aboard ‘The Dove.’
It’s a great time of year to cruise in the lower Caribbean aboard ‘The Dove.’

Choose THE DOVE and you’ve chosen one of the best ‘vacation packages’ in the islands.  Your host, Captain Larry Tyler, studied Hotel Management for four years and trained as a chef at the Dorchester Hotel in London.  He was born in Italy and speaks fluent French and Italian.  

The Dove’s interior shows the fine touch of Mediterranean style with bed linens and towels from Carré Blanc and Italian bath fittings.  Larry’s skill with a fishing rod guarantees the freshest fish you’ll ever eat - and the galley is equipped with  an Italian ice cream machine! 

With 90% of his bookings coming from repeat charters, you know that Captain Tyler does a superb job.  He delights in sharing his intimate knowledge of the Caribbean Islands to ensure his guests have the best vacation ever. 

Accommodations for four in two air-conditioned queen berth cabins with en suite heads and showers.  The master cabin has a 22” flat screen TV with a large selection of DVD’s.  The iPod has over 2000 songs.  Two silent wind generators provide quiet electricity.

US$ 7,800/2   $9,180/4 – ex bar / glic / fees / taxes / comm / dockage
Open now until 15 April pick up in St. Vincent, and from 21 May onwards.

What is the best way to get to the GRENADINES?

Captain John Nicholson of MAKAYABELLA passes along this very helpful information for the easiest way to get your clients to the Grenadines.

1.) Fly to Barbados.  There are many flights from the UK and USA.

2.) Charter a private plane for the 40 minute flight to any of the Grenadine Islands.  A plane with 6 or 8 seats is approximately US$1,200 to $1,300 one way.  Cost for a party of 6 is comparable to commercial flights.

 Why is this the best way?

1. No connection worries.  The chartered plane will wait if the international flight is delayed.

2. Go straight through a transit lounge and on to the plane within 30 minutes of arriving.

3. More flexible ports mean more time on the islands guests want to see .  EX:  Start in Bequia and return from   Union.

4. Customs and immigration are far quicker and easier than St. Vincent.

5. For departure, check in 30 minutes before take-off – NOT 2 HOURS!

Note: Guests must travel with carry-on luggage only.  Makayabella will provide all the toiletry items that are no longer allowed on planes - just add it to the preferences.
