The Falls of Baleine is among St. Vincent's finest natural wonders. The sparkling waters plunge about 60ft into a rock-enclosed fresh water pool, perfect for swimming. The Falls is only accessible by boat, with a short walk through a narrow valley with cliffs on both sides. Falls of Baleine is approximately 20 miles/32km from the Cruise Ship Terminal in Kingstown.

Again through Fantasea Tours, we took a boat down the coast to the Falls of Baleine. We had young children with us this day but everyone was still able to participate. We stopped the boat and swam ashore before making a small walk to the falls. The freshwater falls have a pool at the bottom that is refreshing and fun... More

This is a costly adventure with not much of a hike. It's really about 10 minutes walk to the falls after the boat ride. There is a small pool for swimming, but not much else. The guides did a little fishing on the way back.

From the photographs this looked amazing. In actual fact the falls are quite small, the pools are very rocky and slippery and the access across a bamboo pole bridge is hair raising. If you are even slightly not good on your legs avoid this one!!!

A wonderful place. First you get there through a boat ride seeing the coast line of the island. Than after a short walk of 10 minutes, you get to this magical place where you can swim, jump from the rock and then just relax in the middle of the nature. When we went there was no one there and we... More

We did this in 2012 after the hurricane which had simply twisted pieces of reinforced concrete into rubble. It was hard to dock againgst the waves, We walked upriver to falls noticing how the hurricane had simply demolished anything built for tourists. We went for a swim in the pool. One of the women who couldn't swim very well moved... More

Tried to hike from Fancy village to the falls, but started too late to make it, so can't comment on the falls. However, the interesting trail is little more than a goat path used by ganja farmers. I hired a young man in Fancy to guide me (probably a good idea). He carried a cutlass "for security". Trail was narrow... More

Not a tropical fantasy as described byguide books! More like the scene from horror film. Falls of Baleine are not easily accessible now - it is not possible to moor the boat and we needed to jump from the boat to the wooden broken pier when the waves were not very high and our fisherman felt we can make it....

A wonderful conclusion to a recent shore excursion. We visited St Vincent whilst on a Caribbean cruise with P&O Ventura. A 4 hour boat trip along the spectacular coastline on Wind & Sea's catamaran then a dip under the Baleine waterfall was very much a highlight of our cruise. Can not wait to return to this underrated island. No wonder... More
