One of the best things about a luxury Grenada vacation is enjoying the sun, sand and sea. Fringed by dazzling white sand beaches, secret coves, incredible coral reefs and shipwrecks, and deserted out islands only accessible by boat – come explore with West Indies Concierge. Here’s our pick of some of the best activities in Grenada for ocean lovers like us.
Scuba Diving and Snorkelling in Grenada
One of the scuba diving hotspots of the region, the warm Caribbean waters surrounding Grenada are teeming with marine life and ancient coral reefs waiting to be explored. Expect to see stingrays, turtles, moray eels, vibrant tropical reef fish, the occasional shark and more. There are shallow reefs perfect for snorkellers and deeper sites where you’ll need to go scuba.
Grenada also boasts the Caribbean’s largest divable shipwreck – the Bianca C – an impressive former cruise ship which sank outside of St George’s Harbour in 1961, earning the nickname ‘Titanic of the Caribbean’. She now rests at an average depth of 50m (165ft) making it an exciting advanced dive. Another claim to fame is the world’s first Underwater Sculpture Park, located in Molinere Bay – with a collection of interesting and eery statues created by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. With a maximum depth of 12m (40ft), it’s accessible for both snorkelers and divers.
If you’re interested in scuba diving or snorkelling on your luxury Grenada vacation, West Indies Concierge can connect you with the best dive services on the island. From private dive or snorkel boat charters to learning to dive in your villa’s swimming pool, we’ll ensure you have the best diving experience in Grenada.
Watersports in Grenada
If you’re into kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, Hobie-cats or other watersports, Grenada’s the perfect place to enjoy fun-filled days on the water. With the contrast of calm protected bays and the strong trade winds, you’ll find the perfect conditions for a variety of watersports.
At West Indies Concierge, we can arrange watersports rentals, private lessons and tours along the coastline. Some of our favourite experiences are kayaking through the pristine mangroves in Carriacou, or an adrenaline-inducing self-drive dingy tour along Grenada’s west coast. For the ultimate luxury Grenada vacation, some of our ocean-front villas have their own watersport equipment, so you don’t even have to leave the privacy of your home-away-from-home to enjoy some fun on the water!
Sailing and power boating on your luxury Grenada vacation
Attracting world-class sailors from all over the world, Grenada’s location at the southern tip of the Grenadine chain, favourable winds and beautiful bays and islands make it the perfect launch pad for sailing trips – whether you’re interested in a day charter along Grenada’s beautiful west coast or a multi-day trip through the islands, fully chartered and catered with an experienced crew.
Experienced sailors can take the helm on a barefoot charter, or we can arrange for you to join the crew on a competition vessel during Grenada’s annual sailing festival, held in January or February each year.
For those with a need for speed, or to just maximise your time at the destination, West Indies Concierge offers exclusive day charters on M/V Temptation, our exclusive 31ft power boat. This is the perfect way to explore Grenada’s deserted out-islands like Saline Island off the coast of Carriacou, and Sandy Island – a bit closer to home off Grenada’s north coast.
Deep Sea Fishing in Grenada
Fishing has always been a part of Grenadian culture, as evident by the incredible seafood on offer at the island’s many top restaurants. The waters around Grenada offer excellent sports fishing for amateur and professional anglers alike.
With West Indies Concierge, enjoy a day on the water with a half or full day fishing charter – a fun activity for the whole family. Go after the big catch with marlin, yellow-fin tuna, sailfish and more. Most of these game fish are caught on a ‘catch-and-release’ basis, for conservation reasons. For committed and experienced anglers, West Indies Concierge can arrange for you to join a boat in the Spice Island Billfish Tournament which takes place annually in January or February.
