In less than two months, a new management team will be in charge of operations at Barbados’ premiere tourist attraction.
Harrison’s Cave will be managed by nature adventure tour company Chukka Caribbean Adventures (Barbados) Ltd under a partnership that will take effect on December 1, 2020, announced Caves of Barbados Ltd (CBL) in a brief statement this evening.
CBL confirmed that four bids were received and Chukka was chosen based on the high quality of its submission which offered a strong proposal for investment and development of the attraction.
“The selection of a shortlisted bid was then followed by months of negotiations of a contract led by a Government-appointed college of negotiators,” CBL said.
Minister of Tourism Senator Lisa Cummins confirmed that the country will receive a full update at a media conference planned for November which will include the principals from Chukka.
As part of the process, CBL’s employees and their representatives have been fully apprised of the developments and have been working collaboratively with CBL on the necessary transition arrangements, the statement said.
