Grenada Sculpture Park Winter 2019-2020

Thursday, November 21, 2019

Blue Clipper will be arriving in Grenada, at the southern tip of Caribbean Islands in January, after crossing the Atlantic from Portugal. One trip that will be high on the list to visit will be the underwater sculpture park located off the west coast of Grenada. Created by artist Jason de Caires Taylor who decided that… “The ocean is the most incredible exhibition space an artist could ever wish for”. Built in 2006 after a hurricane wiped out much of the coral reef, the sculpture park is a unique submerged gallery that has started to form a new coral reef. The sculptures were positioned in the ocean at the correct time for coral spawning in an area where significant storm damage occurred. Visitors can admire the sculptures by snorkeling, scuba diving or even glass-bottom boat as some of the sculptures are just 6 feet under the surface. The sculptures attract a stunning array of marine life while easing the environmental pressure on the other reefs in the locality. You’ll find a circle of life-size figures from local children holding hands, the lost correspondent, man on a bike and a still life table with fruit bowl that changes as it grows with coral and marine life. After an exciting visit under the waterline, why not finish the day off with a spiced rum, watching the sunset over the bowsprit! Join Blue Clipper on one of her 11-night Caribbean voyages and beat the winter blues!
