Chris renews his wedding vows in St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Mopion CayThis week - a very special, on location, travel show from St. Vincent and the Grenadines. There is nowhere more romantic than the tranquil natural setting of thirty two unspoiled islands in the secluded southern Caribbean. So listen as Dara and Chris renew their vows after thirty years of marriage on Mopion - a tiny sand bar near Petit St. Vincent.

Chris will be broadcasting* from Young Island, a private island resort located 200 yards south of the main island of St. Vincent. But during his visit he'll be enjoying one of the exciting twists that a trip to St. Vincent and the Grenadines has to offer - island hopping! So he'll also be visiting Bequia, Union Island, Canouan, Tobago Cays and Petit St. Vincent.

La Soufriere VolcanoSt. Vincent and the Grenadines boasts the best of a rare, authentic Caribbean. Pristine white sand beaches and tranquil waters offer exceptional diving, sailing and snorkeling. The landscape is lush and varied with exciting soft adventure activities and historic sites that unveil a colourful culture. There are private island retreats for couples and many options for that perfect wedding or honeymoon. Find out more at
