We decided to have a day trip to Petite Martinique from Carriacou with the Osprey which is a comfortable ferry which travels everyday between Grenada and Carriacou.
However, we were told we had to get onto a smaller boat which was quite an adventure, being that from the wharf you had to literally jump into a boat which was bobbing up and down in the water.
I with my knee replacement thought I would never make it but with a little help I conquered my fear. Not so two other women who wanted to get on but would not risk it. I think they were wise.
The going was rough because it was a windy day and the waves were high.
Coming back was much easier as we travelled with the wind and waves and were able to enjoy the view of the neighboring islands like Petite St. Vincent which is a private island and very costly to stay there.
Petit Martinique is definitely a destination for the person looking for a Caribbean serene and private environment. This small volcanic island of Petite Martinique lies 5 km/3 miles northeast of Carriacou.
