Fed from sources located deep in the island's interior, the Balthazar River snakes through exotic tropical rain forest teeming with flora and fauna.
Your adventure begins with a 45-minute drive out of the town of St George’s, through the scenic hilly interior of the Grand Etang Rain Forest Reserve to Balthazar Estate. The drive brings you directly to the tubing launch site.
After a safety briefing, you will be provided with a life vest, modified inner tube and a paddle before getting into the river. A wet, wild and wonderful journey awaits as you and your guide gently spin and swirl in the currents of the river, taking in the exotic scenery of tropical vegetation and wildlife. This is a thrilling ride down the river, stopping only in the pools along the way to catch your breath.
At the conclusion of your journey, you will enjoy a much-deserved rum punch or glass of local fruit juice before returning to the ship.
