Traveling to Young Island

Air Arrival

In 2017, St. Vincent opened its major new Argyle International Airport (SVD). Nonstop flights are available to St. Vincent via Caribbean Airlines to/from New York’s JFK airport (JFK). Beginning Dec. 22, 2018, nonstop flights to St. Vincent will be available via American Airlines from Miami International Airport (MIA), and via Air Canada Rogue from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) will launch for the second year Nov. 1, 2018.

Flights to St. Vincent also route through Barbados, San Juan, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia and Trinidad. Scheduled and charter flights to St. Vincent can be reserved through LIAT, Caribbean Airlines, Mustique Airways, and SVG Air.


Upon airport arrival, a quick 25-minute scenic taxi ride brings you to our private ferry dock. We can arrange for your taxi transfer.

Ferry to Young Island

From our ferry dock, enjoy a five-minute ride across just 200 yards of clear waters. Step ashore, take off your shoes, be greeted with a smile and cool drink. You’ve arrived!

Our ferry runs 24 hours a day, on demand. However, if you plan to be in St. Vincent later than midnight, please inform security and the boatman.

Entry Requirements

Americans need passports to re-enter the United States from the Caribbean. For more information about how to obtain a U.S. Passport, visit the U.S. Department of State website.

Visitors from all other countries must have passports. Visa requirements vary by country.

No Camouflage

It is illegal to wear any form of camouflage clothing in St. Vincent and The Grenadines. The law is strictly enforced. Similar laws exist on other islands, including Barbados — a major gateway to St. Vincent by air. For your travelling convenience, we suggest you leave all camouflage prints at home.

Departure Tax

This is EC $100.00 (about US $38) per person payable at the airport. LIAT and Caribbean Airlines include this in your ticket price. For all other airlines, this is payable at immigration on departure.

Since EC currency is preferred we suggest you obtain same from the Front Office upon check out.

Car Rentals

Our Front Office can make arrangements for you. If required for weekends, please call us before 3 p.m. on Fridays.

A local driver’s license is required to drive on St Vincent and is obtainable at Police Headquarters in Kingstown. You will have to present your valid driver’s license to get this local license. Please note that this service is not available on Saturday’s, Sunday’s or Public Holidays.
