Gren-Moor is a brand new mooring field located just north of the world famous Grand Anse Beach in Grenada. Grand Anse is Grenada’s premier beach over 3 kilometers in length and about 5 kilometers south of St. George’s. The turquoise waters and the white sands offer a great place for fun and games. The moorings are just off Mount Pandy Bay which is only 5 minutes by dinghy to St. George’s, supermarkets, fuel, water, and more.
Your stay and safety are especially important to us. We provide well maintained moorings. Come moor safely with us and enjoy your stay.
Conveniently located, we currently have 30 moorings and will be expanding to house 80 moorings. With several attractions close by, Gren-Moor could be a great location to provide a base for your stay and enjoyment. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Reservations can be conveniently made by using the Dockwa application.
Please leave a special request if you are quarantined as you may be eligible for a discount
The mooring field outside St. George's is located within a quick dinghy ride to the marina and town. However, the mooring balls are VERY difficult to pick up with the boat hook. The tether line on the first ball I caught was so tightly wrapped around the anchoring line making it virtually impossible to use. (Later, we found another boat had been unable to use it either.) It is unclear which of the two lines coming off the ball has the tether, so if you choose the wrong one, you may get pulled right off your boat. The rope line used with the mooring is very heavy, so it is sturdy, but hard to manipulate on a boat with even a medium height freeboard. The moors do seem to have been anchored tightly so they held even in strong winds. There are no amenities with the balls -- no coupons, no free trash disposal, no discounts on marina use -- so the nightly fees do seem a bit inflated. (btw, my username is my email address, but this review app won't accept anything in the Username field besides letters or numbers and I don't understand why I have to agree to Marinas.com's Terms and Condition in order to submit a review.)
Junior was very helpful and polite. It was a pleasure to be there.
Original assignment was Non Q mooring. Upon arrival several commercial trawlers impeded selection of mooring. Also their daily running of generator/engine was not peaceful. As several Q Moorings were open we moved to that area for duration of stay. However a very pleasant experience.
Too expensive : Very far from any point of interest. No accommodations or service attached. Mooring line too light for a medium vessel. However : Friendly welcome ( Junior ). very easy and efficient booking and payment on Line. Almost positive experience.
I would rather Anchor, but boats 40 and under don’t have the choice.
Only there for one night, but the mooring was in a good spot, between Grand Anse and St. George's harbour. Overnight was fine, a little rolly, but beware any kind of northerly swell, which would make this uncomfortable. Had to fiddle with the mooring ball because the ring was on its bottom, but we got it. Short dinghy ride to Grenada Marine for easy fueling (both petrol and diesel) and there is a dinghy dock directly across the street from both Food Land and Island Water World marine, which makes this mooring more valuable. $15 was a bit pricey, but for a one-nighter it was fine.
First of all this mooring is easy overt over priced. One could stay in the marina for about the same amount and with tons more amenities. The ring of our mooring was installed upside down and made it difficult to pull the rope through because of the pinching. The staff are friendly and courteous. But the price of the moorings should be adjusted or offer something for that high price.
Excellent field of moorings. I happened to read a couple of other reviews and to their gripes, one can only respond, “you don’t get out much, do you?” I found their blocks and lines in excellent shape and of appropriate size to hold a vessel up to 50’. The water is clean, we had great cooling breezes, and it’s pretty quiet despite being close to the city area. The gentleman from Gren-Moor who came to check the field was friendly and able to provide information.
Excellent in almost every way, except the ‘thimbles’ are always under water! Conventional pennants would be most welcome.
To come out and assist whenever a yacht enters the bay would be a progress. This should happen before the anchor dropped. I would have done heavier concrete blocks for the moorings ... not so sure they won't drag in heavy gusts. The website or email messages Dockwa could be done better ... does not fit in properly on my email client which is W10 standard. To resize the logo would help already.
I snorkeled to check the buoy and it appeared to be new and in good shape, easily able to hold our 18 ton sailboat. The bay was nicely protected with a lovely view of the island. The buoy attendant was helpful while we were in quarantine. Highly recommended.
