Photo Essay: A Quick Re-Provisioning in Bequia

At just seven square miles, the beautiful little island Bequia still manages to claim the title of “largest among the Grenadines!”

On our recent sailing adventure aboard Trust Me (charted through Sail Oasis), we paid a visit to this “island in the clouds” as it was known in Arawak to pick up provisions before charting a course deeper into the Grenadines. As captain Kevin explained to me, the further you sail into the Grenadines away from St. Vincent, the more expensive everything gets.

A bag of ice in St. Vincent? Maybe 5EC. On Bequia? Around 10EC. And on the smaller islands like Mustique? Think 25EC!

So, naturally a lot of sailors make it a point to stop at Bequia for some last-minute provisions before venturing on into the immaculate chain of spectacular islands and islets that await them to the south.

To get a taste of the experience, check out the photo gallery below… Then maybe give the folks at Sail Oasis a call to charter your own boat!
