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”.

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. It is a lot of climbing so it is a tough ride, but getting to go for a swim at the top is always worth it. While the terrain is not very technical there are a few steep climbs. 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.
If you really want to go off the beaten path, reserve your spot on our Savor The Country Tour and explore Grenada’s countryside. You'll go by bus on a 6-hour tour through the country where you’ll visit local estate and gardens and travel through the rain-forest to see where the local spices and fruits come from. You will also learn the techniques used to make Grenada’s National Dish “Oil Down”.
Perfect way to wind down and put an end to the day or to enjoy a quiet romantic cruise with a loved one while watching the stunning Caribbean sunsets. Picture sailing on a sloop whose history dates back to the early 1800’s when these beautiful hand built vessels plied their trade up and down the Caribbean chain from St. Barths to Trinidad trading all manner of goods from rum to cigarettes to spices. The art of boatbuilding has been the lifeblood of our sister islands Carriacou and Petite Martinique for hundreds of years but unfortunately over the last 50 years the mallets could no longer be heard as the industry went into decline due to traders preferring to buy steel cargo boats instead of the hand built sloops. Includes freshly squeezed local juices, water, beers and rum punch.
The ride on our vessel is nothing short of amazing, very dry and extremely smooth. Its construction means that it is fast, light, agile and quite unlike anything else in Grenada with no bashing through the seas like normal boats. We ride over the waves as only a RIB can. As we cruise into the bays we slow down and drift for a while and your guide will tell you about, amongst other things the history, geography and ecology of the island. In between the calm and gentle cruising it's smiles all round as we dash to the next place of interest. You will learn about the volcanic beginnings of the Caribbean, Grenada's active underwater volcano, Monkeys, Armadillos, Whales, Dolphins, Marlin and Leatherback turtles that can weigh as much as 2000lbs (that's about the same as everybody on the boat!). The diversity on and around Grenada is amazing and we will tell you about it all.
Leaving our Point Saline base we drive through the fishing village of Calliste then connect to the Grand Anse Valley Road for a short distance before entering a charming little farming village where husbandry is the mainstay. Meandering down romantic shaded dusty trails we finally descend upon a secluded beautiful white sand beach. The views of the neighboring islands are majestic and are the best Snapshot opportunities of your entire Spice Isle vacation. At this point we crossover to Hogg Island – don’t stress because no travel documents are required! This truly virgin cone shaped island with wonderful sandy trails is a dream come through for the adventurous. And after you have seen it all it’s time to kick off your shoes and dance in the sand to some ole time calypso!
