River Tubing Grenada's Balthazar River

Grenada River Tubing

As they say in Grenada, the Balthazar River isn’t called Grenada’s Great River for nothing. Nestled between the exotic and magnificent tropical rainforest, flora, fauna, and enchanting history of the Balthazar Estate. The Balthazar River is fed from sources deep in the island’s interior.  It is the ideal place for our Mt. Parnassus Inn guests to experience the unique blend of nature and adventure. This adventure is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Snap-on your life vests and helmets, step to the river’s edge, and prepare for an adventure with expert guides as you spin and swirl in the river’s currents and take in the beautiful landscape of tropical greenery and wildlife.  As you navigate the river’s surging rapids, you’ll be presented to a rarely seen Grenadian attraction.
