First stop: Underwater Sculpture Park with LTD Sailing in Grenada and the Grenadines
One of the first stops we do on our week-long Cruise and Learn trips with LTD Sailing in Grenada and the Grenadine is the Underwater Sculpture Park. Don your mask, pop in your snorkel and splash into the shallow waters of the Caribbean sea just off Moliniere Point to visit the eerie statues of the World’s first Underwater Sculpture Park.
As you swim toward the Marine Park, you start to wonder “Ok, where are these so-called sculptures?” Then you kinda see something or you think you see something. What is it? “Viccituedes,” the circle of children, comes into focus and it takes your breath away! Swim down and look them in the eye – powerful! Are they watching you as you swim away?
You crave more! Where is the next one? You find “The Lost Correspondent” sitting alone in his sandy-bottom office with his typewriter and clips of newspaper scattered on his desk. Curious – the clippings are articles of Grenada’s involvement with Cuba.
“Man on a Bike” appears and it’s as if he is going for a Sunday stroll under the ocean with a school of Butterfly fish fluttering after him.
