We were 5 of us off of the first cruise ship of the season. We booked our trip based on the Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed.
Kim met us at the ship and we loaded into our transport for the 15 minute drive to the marina. Along the way she told us some of the history of Grenada. We had varying degrees of kayaking experience in our group but nobody was hard pressed to keep up on our paddle to Hog Island. We stopped for a brief history lesson at the sunken Cuban vessels and were surprised at the number of Canadian yachts anchored in the bay.
We tried snorkeling from the dinghy but the water was too murky. Alternatively we were able to spend a good deal of time lazily swimming off of the beach in between sandwiches and glasses of Kim's special rum punch (I need that recipe!).
There is a makeshift bandstand on the island and we were told it is a very popular place with the locals and "yachties" for parties. Not sure what they use for bathroom facilities as there are none on the island.
Our paddle back to the marina from our virtually private island was a little more challenging as the wind had picked up a bit but Kim chose a route to minimize our exertions.
On our way back to town, Keith our driver took the scenic route and gave us a mini tour of the area which included fantastic vistas of the coast.
Thanks Joe for the tip on what to do if I should meet a Great White. Of course there aren't any in the local waters but it was just one of the many interesting conversations we had.
Kim, Joe and Odie we excellent hosts, providing us with lots of local info, a great tour and fantastic hospitality. One of the highlights of our trip for sure.
