Spending time on this magnificent island while on your Carriacou Yacht Charter is a dream come true. Carriacou is also known as the “Isle of Reefs.” It is, in fact, recognized as the friendliest and safest island in the Caribbean. The island is located 23 miles north of Grenada and it is only 13 square miles in size. Based in the Windward Islands, it features some of the most unspoiled coral reefs in the region. As a result, most dive sites are fantastic and ideal for all levels of divers and snorkelers. Hillsborough is the capital. The locals are commonly known as “Kayaks or Kajaks.” Kayaks have passed this tradition through generations from their Scottish forefathers. English is the official language and the currency used is the Eastern Caribbean dollar.
Carriacou enjoys a hot, tropical climate that is tempered by cooling trade winds. The average year-round temperatures are 72-88 F. December to May are the driest months. Since the island is located on the southern edge of the hurricane and tropical storm belt, it is rarely affected by storms that pass through the region from July to November. Rainfall is abundant, but it receives less than Grenada especially away from inland elevations. Carriacou’s rainfall is less than 60 inches a year. The rains usually occur in the form of downpours or thunderstorms, however, it does not last long.
There are two official ports of entry into Carriacou, Hillsborough (weekends) and Tyrell Bay (Monday through Friday).
