mail boat and cheap inter-island transport


I was told we could hop onto the mail boat from Canouan to Union island ?

Does anyone know anything about these mail boats ?

And can you take them from any of the islands?

It sounded like it would be a cheap fast way to get around...

Also heard there was a Ferry to Bequia from somewhere ??

Any helpful inter island info would be great for cheap transport

around mustique, canouan, bequia, st. vincent, union island

we've got a few days and would like to island hop a little for as cheap as poss.

Thanks in advance....

at this time, there are no inter-island ferries/mailboats from Barbados to anywhere although they keep promising...

If you get to St. Vincent, there are interisland ferries/mailboats all the way to Grenada. But you have to fly to St. Vincent,

I agree with curiousx.. nothing from Barbados full stop (cheap inter-island transport.. thats a laught)

but as was said.. from St. Vincent you will get to Bequia via ferry and there are others that travel between those islands you mentioned. google Inter-island ferry from St. Vincent and also union island and see what you come up with. also check the forum for St. Vincent and the Grenedines and see what you come up with (you will find curiousx there as well) . check their things to do sections
