I can't speak to the charter companies, but would strongly recommend St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) to Grenada. I have spent a few seasons in the Bahamas
and would recommend the Exumas's and further south, the Raggeds and Jumentos for incredible water
, but no services and not much chartering.
St Vincent to St George's, Grenada is roughly 80NM with more than a dozen islands in between. The conditions in April should have trade
winds that are generally east to north of east and a course heading of roughly 200 degrees from SVG to Grenada, with seas normally running out of the east or northeast. You will never be out of the sight of land, your longest hop might be from Tyrell Bay, Carricou to St George's which is about 30NM. About half the trip down would be exposed to ocean swell, but at worst on the beam and more likely aft of the beam.
I would recommend Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau - Saltwhistle Bay, the Tobago
Cays (a must see), Union Island - Chatham Bay and Clifton, Carriacou - Sandy Island and Tyrell Bay, Ronde Island if it is calm and then Grenada. Most of the anchorages
in Grenada are on the south side of the Island, where everyone spends the hurricane
season. Those bays are very interesting with lots to do, but the water, beaches and scenery are much better up in the Grenadines.
Hope this helps, have a great trip!
