There is absolutely no way we’ll let you go on a trip to Grenada without leaving you with some tips for having a blast on the water. No Caribbean vacation is complete without splashing around in the big blue sea and Grenada is no exception to the rule. Year round the waters are warm and inviting. Maybe you want to wade in the calm turquoise waters of Grand Anse or Pink Gin Beach? Or rather take a tumble in the rougher swells off of Bathway Beach and Lavera National Park? Or why not get out on the water by taking part in a fun and memorable activity like sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, or scuba diving! The possibilities are endless. To help you narrow it down, here are some of our favorite watersports in Grenada.
Savvy Sailing: For the Adventurous Traveler looking for an Authentic Experience
With Savvy Sailing, embark on a unique and locally-built wooden sailboat, designed using historical boat- building practices of the aboriginal community. Aboard this unique vessel, you’ll learn a ton about the Grenadian islands while having a fun, rejuvenating, and memorable experience. They take smaller groups than many other operators, making for quite the romantic activity – especially if you choose a sunset cruise. Aside from evening adventures, they also offer half-day and full-day snorkel cruises, and our personal favorite: the 2-day trip through the Grenadines.
Nearly nothing can be as magical as exploring the unbeatable powdery shores of the deserted Sandy and Union Islands and then camping out like a pirate from past times. You may even be accompanied by Tigger the savvy-sea-dog.
Savvy Sailing offers private and group charters with between 6 and 16 people (max. 10 for the 2-day trip). Tours range in price between USD 45 p.p. / USD 450 – group (Sunset Cruise) to USD 100 p.p. / USD 1000 – group (Full Day Cruise incl. drinks & lunch), with the 2-day trip costing USD 2060 for a group of up to 10 people.
