Grenada is a city of color and spice, where the buildings are brightly painted and the scent of locally-grown cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg fills the air unlike any other Caribbean destination. Grenada shore excursions offer something for everyone, from wildlife lovers to foodies to adventure seekers.
Grenada cruise excursions like whale and dolphin spotting in the North Atlantic Ocean are an animal lover’s ideal afternoon, where you’ll have the chance to see humpback whales and rare species of dolphin. Or, take a kayak tour starting at Grand Mal Bay for an active afternoon in Grenada, and a chance to spot even more fish species from clear-bottom kayaks.
Less than an hour’s drive from the capital city of St. George are ecotourism sites like Levera National Park and Grand Etang National Park for hiking and water activities. At Grand Etang, you can venture into the park to an impressive crater-formed lake and cascading waterfalls. Snorkelers will love Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, where art installations now act as artificial reefs where you can dive and explore these uniquely crafted underwater pieces.
Foodies shouldn’t miss Grenada shore excursions like spice tours of major estates and processing facilities to learn every facet of the spice harvesting and production process. After all, Grenada produces some of most sought-after spices in the world. There’s even an entire restaurant in Grenada dedicated to all things cocoa called House of Chocolate.
If you’re lucky, you might be taking a cruise to Grenada during the biggest event of the year—Carnival. Each August, locals commemorate the end of slavery in Grenada at Carnival, and it’s a celebration of food, costumes, dance, culture, and more. Hungry for more history? Tour Fort Frederick and Fort George for a better understanding of Grenada’s competing French and British colonization and their efforts to protect (and claim) the island.
Whether you’re here to soak up sunshine or enjoy spice island as a foodie paradise, Grenada shore excursions present a variety of options to make St. George’s your own.
