Gardens of St. Vincent

St. Vincent Botanical Gardens

Stop by the St. Vincent Botanical Gardens, one of the oldest in the Western Hemisphere (preceded by Kew Gardens in London and Bartram's Garden in Philadelphia). Conservation or rare species have been in place in this garden since 1765. Following the "Peace of Paris" in 1763 the newly appointed governor of the Southern British Caribbean islands, Robert Melville, and the military surgeon in St. Vincent, George Young decided to create a Botanic garden, primarily to provide medicinal plants for the military and improve the life and economy of the colony. In the early 18th century great emphasis had been laid on introducing valuable and commercial plants from the East Indies. You will see the Amazona Guildingii or Vincy parrot which is the National bird.


Re-Board your coach for a ride through our historic capital, Kingstown. The 'City of Arches', a bustling hive of activity. Your guide will regale you with stories of the nation while pointing out interesting sights. Pass through local villages typifying Vincentian culture. The Marriaqua Valley, home to many farmers, provides much of the food we eat today.


Montreal Gardens

Above the Marriaqua Valley lies Montreal Gardens. Visit with the owner, Mr. Timothy Vaughan, internationally recognized horticulturist, who has lovingly tended the area into a wonderland of beauty. Walk through and see the babbling brook, the misty hillside and the various themes of the garden. He is an expert in the field and is always willing to discuss gardening. The complex is high in the mountains in a tropical climate with lush vegetation.

Have a refreshing drink while you chat.

From here you take a scenic return journey to the ship.

Socca by the Seashore

Depart from the port on a tour bus and enjoy a short sightseeing drive to a beautiful seaside lawn area located at Paradise Beach Hotel in Villa. A few steps away from Villa beach and the boardwalk you disembark the coach to enjoy a local Soca party. Entertainment and local snacks await you on a large grass area with tropical flowers and coconut trees surrounding you. There are beach chairs if you choose to use them or you can take part in the party and learn the local dance moves as you listen to local live music. Our dance instructor will have you participating in the congo line and showing you our vincy dance move called "the wine

The Best of St. Vincent Tour

Take a drive through the capital Kingstown. On Bay Street, you will see many historical artefacts and buildings which contributed to the Vincentian society of today. See the Kingstown Vegetable Market, the Cenotaph and other interesting sites on your way to Fort Charlotte.


Fort Charlotte

Fort Charlotte is a British-colonial era fort, built on a hill over-looking the harbour of Kingstown. Standing 601 feet above sea level, it is the major early 19th century fortification in Saint Vincent. The Fort affords panoramic views of the Leeward side of the island, including Kingstown, Young Island, Bequia and the Grenadines. On re-taking the island in 1763 from the French, the British commenced the building of the Fort. Construction started in 1763 and was completed in 1806. It was at various times used as a poor house, Leper colony and mental facility. The main barracks building housed a women's prison capable of holding 50 prisoners. It closed in 2015 and the dry moat was used as the women prisoner's exercise yard.

The Fort was named after Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz the wife of King George III.
