Caves of Barbados Ltd (CBL) wishes to announce it has selected leading nature adventure tour company, Chukka Caribbean Adventures (Barbados) Ltd (Chukka), to manage the day to day operations of the Harrison’s Cave. This partnership will take effect on December 1, 2020.
In making the announcement, it was confirmed that four bids were received and Chukka was chosen based on the high quality of their 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 negotiation of a contract led by a Government appointed college of negotiators.
Minister of Tourism, Senator Lisa Cummins, confirmed a full media conference is 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.
