The biggest party boat launches on River Volta

The Trident is a quality adventure Island ran by BraveHearts Expeditions Limited
Weighing in at 2.5 tonnes in a white-and-orange coloured beauty, and powered by twin 60HP engines, the Trident is a cruise boat named after an island of the same name.
The Trident is a quality adventure Island ran by BraveHearts Expeditions Limited, a leading outdoor adventure and experiential learning company. It is located at Akwamufie near the Adomi Bridge in the Asuogyaman District of the Eastern Region.

The double-decker cruise boat will run day and night cruises beginning on Sunday, February 12, 2023 and will host a maximum of 20 non-crew passengers per cruise. The boat is 36-feet long with a 12-feet wide deck and stands at a height of 14 feet.

“Each cruise will last a total of 90 minutes, and the boat will first detour at the base of the Akosombo Dam through the Akwamu Gorge when it casts off from the reception of the Trident,” says JayJay Addo-Koranteng, Executive Officer of BraveHearts Expeditions.

“From the dam, it will sail at full throttle across the 8.5km expanse of River Volta’s course to the Adomi Bridge before it goes about at the bridge to the reception of the Trident.”

The cruise boat was built in Ghana by Benlex Engineering and Marine Systems as a Landing Craft, and is the most stable riverine vessel on River Volta, packing a maximum speed of 25 knots.

“We absolutely did not want to import a boat,” Mr. Addo-Koranteng mentioned to Graphic Showbiz about why his company chose to make the boat in Ghana.

“We felt that we understood enough of nautical engineering and naval architecture to have it built here. Besides, if it was a matter of certification, the Ghana Maritime Authority has all the competence to guide and authorise construction of seaworthy and river-worthy vessels. Building it in Ghana created jobs, as well as good opportunities for anyone that can afford it to own a boat,” he stated.

BraveHearts Expeditions’ Trident Island business offers hiking, abseiling, kayaking and paintballing adventures to customers of all ages, and is the most interactive island adventure location in Ghana.

With the addition of the highly customer-friendly cruise boat, the company maintains its reputation as the most forward-looking adventure company in Ghana, and is on course to make Akwamufie the home of all advanced water and mountaineering sports activities in West Africa.
