Flyingfish Ventures Ltd is a marine surveying company based in Grenada, providing a wide variety of surveys for all types of vessels throughout the region, from South America to the Dominican Republic.

Our surveyors have represented underwriters and owners from Europe and the US for a wide range of insurance claims. These have included sinking, grounding, fire, lightning strike, dismasting, theft, third party damage, warranty claims and hurricane damage both ashore and afloat. Being familiar with the availability of salvage and repair facilities up and down the islands, we can provide the experience and local knowledge that is necessary to get vessels repaired in a timely and professional manner. We have also represented owners for new builds and for repair work.

Grenada itself has extensive facilities for yachts, including two full service boatyards: Spice Island Marine Services in Prickly Bay and Grenada Marine in St David’s. Both of these are served by two well stocked chandleries: Budget Marine and Island Water World, as well as numerous other yachting related services such as sail makers and marine engineering companies.

There are also several marinas including Port Louis in St. George’s, the capital of Grenada. On the south coast there is Prickly Bay Marina in Prickly Bay; Secret Harbour Marina in Mount Hartman; Clarks Court Bay Marina and Whisper Cove Marina in Clarkes Court Bay and Le Phare Bleu, where you can find Island Dreams Yacht Services. Grenada is also home to Blue Water Sailing offering RYA sailing tuition.

For full details, see the Marine and Yachting Association of Grenada Marine Guide.

There are direct flights from the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada, and a wide range of accommodation from five star resorts and luxury villas to budget hotels. Please see Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association or Grenada Explorer for full details.
