You can take a ferry
back from Carricou for much cheaper.
Not sure you will get many other suggestions. Not many cruisers do any cruising down here. Most of us are hanging out in the bays doing boat work and waiting out the hurricane
There really isn't much cruising to be done in Grenada as all the bays are very close to one another (like 3-7nm). Carricou is the furthest you can go before leaving Grenada waters. Its a really easy day sail and most people use it as a jumping off point for islands north (or south to Tobago).
If you are just looking to go out day sailing
, then a charter might be a better idea. Another option may be to rent a hobie cat
and tear around Prickly (you can rent them from Suba Tech at Calibash beach).
