GRENADA -- Grenada is an island country in the southeastern Caribbean. Located northeast of Venezuela, it encompasses just 133 square miles. Alternately colonized by both England and France, English has become the official language, though many of the place names reflect the French influence. Grenada made the world stage during a violent coup in 1983, followed with invasion by the U.S. military. The contemporary political scene is much improved and Grenada is once again an excellent destination for island tourism. Beyond all the fun in the sun, Grenada is known as the "Island of Spice" for its production of nutmeg, mace, chocolate and other crops. Current population is just 110,000 and much of the island remains verdant rain forest.
TRUE BLUE BAY RESORT -- This comfortable property is owned and operated by Russ and Magdalena Fielden, a highly seasoned pair of hospitality veterans. The result is a very comfortable and inviting accommodation. This boutique resort has 50 guest rooms, a lovely waterfront restaurant and bar, its own marina, an in-house dive center, yacht charters, a boutique, two pools, a yoga studio, an exercise room and a spa with massage and beauty treatment services. Plans are ongoing to keep improving and expanding these facilities. Among other unique highlights, True Blue operates its own micro-brewery, producing just enough excellent beer to serve on the property.
AQUANAUTS GRENADA -- Located on the True Blue Bay property is Aquanauts Grenada, a full service PADI dive facility. They provide everything from snorkel trips and beginner dive instruction through technical diving and rebreather training. Nitrox 30% is offered complimentary to all Nitrox certified divers. Other mixes are available upon request, at $10 per tank. The highly capable and energetic owners, Peter and Gerlinde Seupel, are hands-on managers, running a very tight and impressive operation with excellent dive boats and top-quality rental gear. Three dives are offered daily (two-tank in the morning, followed by a one-tank afternoon trip) plus optional night dives over the course of a week. Working as a seamless team of long experience, the quality of the boat operators and dive guides is impressive. One of the guides, Paul, has made more than 11,000 scuba dives in Grenada, and remains completely engaged and enthusiastic about his work. These are true dive professionals.
