Balthazar River “ain't named Grenada’s GREAT RIVER for nottin’, as we say locally” says Sheree-Ann. Fed from sources located deep in the island’s interior, this river is nestled between the exotic and magnificent tropical rainforest, flora, fauna and history of the Balthazar Estate. Our river tubing guest will experience, “a thrill of a life time!” A 45 minute drive out of the town of St. George’s through either the scenic hilly interior of the Grand Etang Rainforest Reserve, or along the breath taking Atlantic east coastline, takes you on to the Balthazar Estate. First stop, the launch site for the introduction and safety briefing. After the briefing you will be provided with your life vest and a modified river tube before getting into the river. Wet, wild and wonderful from the word go, with everyone in the water, the guides will accompany you on the journey, gently spinning and swirling in the currents of the river, as you take in the exotic scenery of tropical vegetation and wildlife, at the same time. A thrilling ride down the river, stopping only in the pools along the way to catch your breath. Then finally at the last pool, an opportunity for a swim before you enjoy a much deserved Rum Punch or glass of local fruit juice, before returning to your “home away from home”.
Feeling adventurous? Then this ropes obstacle course is just the thing.

You will have a perfect view of Glover’s Island, an old whaling station and learn some of the history about our airport and the US invasion surrounding it. There are quite a few rolling hills, but this ride is suitable for beginners. It’s a great way to see a bit of the island and just be out on a bike. The tour will take roughly 2-2.5 hours of riding, about an hour of which is actual riding. Transfers are included from hotels in the south of the island and the cruise ship tour terminal.
The waterfall tour goes up to the famous Annandale waterfall. You will ride along Grenada’s beautiful west coast and through St. George’s before heading inland and uphill to the waterfall.

Ideally we recommend guests on this tour ride somewhat regularly or are quite active. The tour will take roughly 5 hours of riding, most of which is ride time, although mostly downhill on the route back. Transfers are included from hotels in the south of the island and the cruise ship tour terminal.
