island hopping form Barbados

Is it relatively east to hop on over to St. Vincent for a day from Barbados, to better yet, the Tobago Keys?

The airline LIAT have regular flights between Barbados and St Vincent, so yes, you could do a one day trip, but if you got delayed it would scupper your plans!

If you want to do the Tobago Cays, you would be better off flying into Union Island on SVG as they are a fair way from St Vincent - much closer to Union. There are organised day trips from Union, have a look on the St Vincent & Grenadines forum for more info.

It is possible but expensive...LIAT flights aren't cheap really (mainly because of all the dreaded taxes) but SVG Air is very expensive - Chantours operate a day trip from Barbados - not sure how regular it is but worth checking out as it includes everything

There are several daily flights to most of the islands with LIAT but it is time consuming - not a case of just turning up at the airport and leaving in most cases so build some time into your trip for that.

Barbados is the most Easterly of the Caribbean islands with St. Vincent and the Grenadines and St. Lucia being the closest islands at approximately 100 miles away.

Chantours would be your best option - they offer a fantastic day in the Grenadines. You fly from Barbados to Union Island where you are met and escorted to their lovely 45ft. catamaran. They sail to Palm Island, Mayreau and the Tobago Cays (and sometimes Canouan). The price is inclusive of airfare, airport transfers, boat cruise, meals on board, drinks, etc. It will definitely be one of the highlights of your holiday.

Their local contact number is (246) 432-5591 - speak to Chantal or Chris. Happy travels!!!
