Star Clippers has announced that Grenada will serve as its newest homeport for the fleet’s 166-guest clipper ship, Star Clipper, during several new Feb-March 2026 sailings. Working with the Grenada Tourism Authority, Star Clippers has also been able to add Grenada’s Carriacou and its Paradise Beach as one of the ports on the 10- and 11-night itineraries. Full details are available in the just released 2024-2026 Star Clippers brochure.

“Although our ships have been visiting Grenada on our many Caribbean itineraries for some years, when we saw the opportunity to homeport one of our clipper ships there, we immediately set to work with the Grenada Tourism Authority to make it a reality,” said Mikael Krafft, CEO & President of Star Clippers. “The Caribbean is an ideal region for us as the famous Caribbean winds are always there to power our clipper ships, and to be able to offer our guests more opportunities to experience the beauty and culture of Grenada opens up a host of new possibilities.”

Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority, said “The Pure Grenada and Star Clippers brands are aligned in prioritizing authentic experiences for our customers, designed to nourish and feed the soul. Nature treks, beautiful birdsong, delicious cuisine, local traditions and heritage all cascade into an enriching experience second to none. And with convenient direct airlift from the USA and Canada, and our starring role as the newest home port for Star Clipper, there’s never been a better time to visit our beautiful tri-island state.”

Four new itineraries will utilize the new homeport of St. George’s, Grenada, with departures in February and March 2026, offering a who’s who of Southern Caribbean ports. Although each sailing calls on different ports, highlights include Tobago, known for its wide, sandy beaches and biodiverse tropical rainforest; Tobago Cays, a collection of several uninhabited islands in the southern section of the Grenadines that offer some of the best beaches for swimming, tanning and snorkeling; Bridgetown, Barbados capital city and famous for its British colonial architecture, 17th-century Garrison and horseracing track, Nidhe Israel Synagogue and its museum, and lots of shopping opportunities; the aforementioned Paradise Beach in Carriacou, voted the Best Caribbean Beach in USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards 2022; the near 400-year-old town of Saint-Pierre, Martinique; and Soufrière, St. Lucia, best known as the home of Gros Piton and Petit Piton, the iconic pair of now-dormant volcanoes that rise from the crustal-clear Caribbean.
