This wonderful water adventure includes kayaking and snorkeling along the picturesque leeward coast, eventually stopping at one of the locations for "Pirates of the Caribbean."
Depart from the pier for a short but spectacularly scenic drive up the leeward coast of St. Vincent to beautiful Buccament Bay. Here, you'll hop in a single or double kayak and begin paddling out into the crystal-clear waters.
Being on the wind-sheltered side of the island, the seas are typically calm and easy to navigate, so your attention can be focused on the sights. They are considerable and include a backdrop of verdant mountains, serene coves and gorgeous beaches. If you gaze out toward the horizon, there's a possibility that you may see humpback, pilot or sperm whales, or even pods of frolicking dolphins, all of which frequent these waters year-round.
In time, you'll paddle past the Bat Cave, an opening in the volcanic shoreline that's inhabited by thousands of bats, and then arrive at Byahaut Cove. It's one of the best snorkeling spots on the island and typically not crowded as it can only be reached by sea. You may recognize the cove from the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean," some of which was filmed right here.
The sights are just as extraordinary below the surface. The reef is teeming with colorful tropical fish, strange-looking coral and other Caribbean marine life that is sure to capture your attention. After more than an hour of snorkeling, you'll paddle back to Buccament Beach and then drive on to the pier in Kingstown.
