“Fun way to spend a morning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

We went on a morning tour with Kim and the team. We were welcomed by friendly faces, and set of to explore the bay. We were taken to Hogg Island, an idyllic spot to sip on rum punch. The kayaking wasn't too hard going, especially when i got towed on the way home ;)
Kim was really chatty and friendly and gave us loads of idea for other trips. It was good to see some small attractions - the groves and some ship wrecks.
All in all i would highly recommend this trip.

“The highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We had a fantastic morning with Spice Kayaking! The paddle out to Hog Island was just the right length and hanging out on the beach with some rum punch and excellent company was a brilliant way to start our holiday. The hosts were fantastic and the equipment was very well maintained/clean (I always hate wearing mildewy life jackets and these were nice).

“Great trip & great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

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.

“Relaxing kayaking trip with great guides.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

We went for the half day kayaking Tour that includes a trip to one of the few uninhabited islands right next to the main island. The sights were very nice and our guides very friendly. We made a stop in the island for some rum punch, sandwiches and some swimming. It was clearly one of the best experiences we had in Grenada. Our only regret is that we didn't go for the full day tour that also includes snorkeling in the reefs and a barbeque!

Do yourself a favor and go do some kayaking when in Grenada!

“A lovely way of spending a morning or day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2011

Down in the south of the island near most of the other island's attactions and just a short hop from the main town St George, a day or half day spent on a kayak eco-tour is a lovely way of getting closer to nature and and getting away from it all. Kim, Joe and their team are very welcoming, friendly and informative and it is hard not to warm to them. We did the half day over to the deserted Hog Island with a picnic on the beach and it was simply wonderful. It was out of season so it was a small group which was lots of fun. A friend in the UK had recommended this tour and we owe them a big thank you. I just wish we'd done the all day one, and my partner was very interested in the kayak fishing option too, but we ran out of time on the island. I'd thoroughly recommend it.
