The first of the Grenadines is the stunning island of Bequai. Although there is no kiting here, it is well worth stopping off to have a quick look around whilst the captain clears immigration. From here, the trip consists of hopping from island to island and discovering the multitude of kite spots on offer. Each place has its own charm and everyone finds their favorite “Grenadine”.
If you prefer to leave your gear at home, Caribbean Kite Cruise offers gear and other equipment rental for an additional cost.
Lessons can either be taken by the hour or booked as a complete course for the duration of the trip.

Loose those bad habits right from the start so you can make the most of your time on the water. Once you are riding with confidence, coaching is available throughout the trip free of charge.

This surf camp will take place in Grenadines. The Grenadines are by far one of the most popular destinations for kitesurfing as they offer the largest variety of kite spots and the best wind statistics.
The Grenadines are the southernmost islands of the Caribbean and are surrounded by reefs, crystal waters, and white sand beaches. The colors here are incredible and the inhabitants easily transmit their laid back friendly vibe. The choice of kite spots is huge with conditions ranging from ultra flat lagoons to offshore outer reefs. Some islands have small villages with rustic bars, markets, and restaurants whilst other islands are uninhabited and classed as national parks.

For private boat reservations, they also offer self-catering trips where guests cook their own meals. Groceries can be purchased before departure and the ship's galley is at your disposal.
Aside from kitesurfing the catamaran acts as a platform to host a variety of other activities.
For beginner, you may take one-hour private lesson or shared lesson by two persons. For intermediate package, there is eight hours of semi-private or five hours of private lesson with unlimited kite rental and supervision and rescue included.
