Sailing Grenada and the Grenadines with Schooner Jambalaya
A traditional 73ft long sailing schooner, sail the Grenadines island style in luxury! Jambalaya was built in 2002 as a day charter schooner. In 2009 her new owners did an extensive upgrade and refit to concert her to a term charter boat.
Jambalaya is the first Antillean schooner to be built on Carriacou in many years, once one of the great centers of wooden boat construction in the Caribbean. Crafted by the last master shipwrights on the island, she is an authentic and actual expression of the wooden ship building culture that once dominated the Caribbean.
Come and enjoy the special experience of being under full sail on our traditional wooden schooner and journey back in time to sailing as it was!

Captains Danny and Monique are both people with a passion:
After years of working in the redeveloping yachting industry in Grenada, Danny is now full time following his passion of keeping the traditional boatbuilding of the Southern Windward islands alive. When he is not chartering he can be found at one of the classic regattas in the Eastern Caribbean.
Monique has been sailing since her childhood in Canada.Since then she has sailed in many places, and Grenada and the Windward islands became her favorites.
She left her career in the corporate world to pursue her dream of sailing the Caribbean and making that a sustainable way to earn a living. She combines this with her mission of marine conservation as a citizen scientist: while underway she often collects water samples to be analyzed for plastic pollution.
This while relaxing and enjoying all the beautiful Grenadines have to offer.
Cuisine will be from wholesome locally sourced ingredients.
