Union Island Getting Here

Getting to and from Union from St. Vincent is very easy. Two ferries operate daily except on Sunday.

From St. Vincent, ferry services operate several trips a week and the journey time is about 4 hours. You can purchase one-way or return tickets as you board the boat. The ferry between Kingstown and Union also calls in at Canouan and Mayreau, giving you the opportunity to see some other Grenadine islands en route.

A ferry also operates from Carriacou (Grenada) two days a week: Mondays and Thursdays. This gives easy access to Union Island for those travelling to and from Grenada.

By Air

Union has a small airport located on the east coast of the island, very near to Clifton.

Scheduled flights by light aircraft operate daily between Union, St. Vincent and Barbados. Private charters are also available.


By Private Yacht or Charter

Clifton Harbour, Ashton Harbour and Chatham Bay offer sheltered anchorages for visiting sailboats and motor yachts.

Clifton Harbour is our most popular mooring as it is within close proximity to numerous restaurants and bars, provisioning services, hotels and guest houses, and tourist information services. It is also near the Anchorage Yacht Club.

Ashton Harbour and Chatham Bay are less crowded and far more secluded anchorages.

Union is a port of entry and provides customs clearance.
