Know More about this tour

What better way to spend your time in port in St Lucia than sailing through its beautiful Caribbean waters? This catamaran day sail shore excursion offers a relaxing way to enjoy St Lucias natural beauty and features.

After being picked up from the cruise port, youll sail to the town of Soufriere and explore two of the island's most spectacular natural attractions, the majestic Pitons (World Heritage-listed volcanic plugs) and Sulphur Springs (the Caribbeans only drive-in volcano).

Continue on to a plantation estate where you can stroll along trails framed by lush plants and flowers. At a local copra house, you'll see the process of drying coconut and turning it into soap, margarine and oil. You'll also have a chance to sample locally grown cocoa pods before they are turned into chocolate bars. Then, a Creole-style buffet lunch awaits you at a local restaurant.

Youll get back on the boat for a sail up the coastline, with a stop for swimming and snorkeling. Sail into beautiful Marigot Bay, where the original Dr. Doolittle was filmed, before returning to your cruise port.

We will ensure your timely return to Castries for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

    From start to finish this tour was no worries. We booked outside of our Carnival tour and was not at all disappointed. Crew was fantastic. Jr a blast! If you can only do one thing in St Lucia this should be it. We can't wait to come back!

    Excellently organised - we were met straight from our cruise ship, taxied to the catamaran which was clean and well managed. Safety was a top priority no rum punch served before our snorkelling/swimming session and the visits to Soufriere and the gardens and volcano mud baths were excellent.

    The local tour company was very unorganized once we got on dry land. The boat ride was good but once we got into vehicles to tour the island it was very poorly run and the tour guides had poor attitudes.

    It was a great trip. I will say that I was a little worried since some of the other reviews were negative. I guess you can't please some people. Our group of two couples walked off the ship and there was a tour guide holding a printed card with our names on it. We waited about 10 minutes or so for the other ship to off load passengers and then we walked through the cruise terminal to the waiting catamaran. We had a lovely time sailing out to view the Pitons with beverages being served by the attentive cruise staff. There were some small sandwiches and banana bread also available. The Pitons must be viewed this way... there is nothing better. Once docked in Soufriere, we were divided by the tour that we booked. All of the passengers from the cruise ship were on one small bus. We were taken to the lovely botanical gardens with a guided tour to see the many plants, flowers and waterfall. We were then whisked off to the mud bath experience that you must do. Hot water comes out of the mountain and flows down stream. You rub mud all over, let it dry and them rinse it off in the hot flowing water. Our lunch was the next stop at a resort, a buffet lunch with plenty of tasty local items to eat. You could buy piton beer at all the stops that was very cold and refreshing. Once back to Soufriere, we re-boarded the catamaran and made our way back to the cruise port. We stopped along the way to allow guests to snorkel or swim. My husband snorkeled and I swam. You were given your choice of all you could consume of Piton Beer, Rum Punch and other beverages. We arrived back at the cruise terminal and had time to shop a little if you wanted. I will say that the trip is well worth the price and I highly recommend it. If we ever go back to St. Lucia I will book this tour again.

    This was a very fun excursion, and tons of fun! A little too much waiting to leave and come back, but would be my only complaint. Crew and all guides were great also!!!

    couldn't have asked for a better day crew was great and the scenery was unbeleilvable

    A great day on the water and on the land at St. Lucia. The crew was absolutely the best.

  • 11-Dec-2013

    Absolutely the best part of our 20 day cruise we took. The crew was WONDERFUL. Had a lot of fun thru every aspect of the day. The mud baths are a MUST on the tour...Don't do the volcano viewing option. Nothing much to see...you can't walk around the bubbling vents anymore. Everything was wonderful...the rum punch was exceptional, snorkeling was great. We were on Princess and took this excursion instead...people on the Princess one told us how crowded and confusing their exact excursion was. WE LOVE VIATOR!

    I would NOT suggest this tour if you are coming off cruise ship. We were told that we would be back at 4:15. Our ship to sail at 4:45, We ran back to ship as putting up gang plank. Overall, the tour was fine. The snorkeling was crowded but ok. Not outstanding but not great snorkeling at St Lucia. We had no weather or other issues. Just poor communication. Very large boat with lot of people. Staff polite and friendly.

    This tour was awesome! The boat was spacious and handled expertly by the crew. The land part of the tour was very interesting and highlighted the beauty of St. Lucia.
