The scenic journey gradually unfolds into the lush embrace of the Montreal Gardens, soaring 1,476 feet above sea level.
  • Whale & Dolphin Watching Experience” – This experience includes a three-hour adventure where travelers will explore the leeward coastline of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. They can watch dolphins make graceful leaps out of the water, breaking the water’s surface to put on a show and glimpse pilot, humpback or sperm whales at play. Then, they can enjoy a cruise along the black sand-lined beach of Mt. Wynne, the iconic filming location of “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
