About Savvy Tours

Picture sailing on a sloop whose history dates back to the early 1800's when these beautiful hand built vessels plied their trade up and down the Caribbean chain from St. Barths to Trinidad trading all manner of goods from rum to cigarettes to spices.

The art of boatbuilding has been the lifeblood of our sister islands Carriacou and Petite Martinique for hundreds of years but unfortunately over the last 50 years the mallets could no longer be heard as the industry went into decline due to traders preferring to buy steel cargo boats instead of the hand built sloops.

This boatbuilding art-form is now seeing a resurgence due to switched on tourist seeking a more authentic cultural experience when they visit the islands. Savvy built on the shores of our sister island Petite Martinique offers its guest a gateway into Grenada's authentic boatbuilding culture and way of life. From its captain who is a boatbuilder from Petite Martinique to the local ingredients we use in our food and drink to the beautiful wooden boat, one can feel transformed to a generation past when sailing these beautiful shores of Grenada was a way of life.

So for those adventurous souls seeking an authentic connection to the heritage of this historic island chain, the Savvy crew will ensure you have a truly fun & memorable experience. Our small intimate groups & private sailing charters enhance the romance of being aboard this unique vessel.
