St Lucia Whale and Dolphin Watching Cruise
Go whale watching off the coast of St Lucia during this 3-hour cruise. With your friendly captain, pass quaint fishing villages perched on the shore on the way out to deeper waters. Look for sperm whales (45ft/14m), pilot whales (20ft/6m) and humpback whales (60ft/18m). View pods of dolphins, sometimes up to 150 at a time, swimming and playing in the aquamarine waters. Complimentary light refreshments and snacks are available on board; beer is available for purchase. Round-trip transportation from Castries hotels is included.
What to Expect
After pickup from your Castries-area hotel, head to the marina to board the boat for your whale and dolphin spotting experience! It has been reported that excess of 25 varieties of these magnificent mammals have been spotted in our waters, each bearing its own unique fascination. Watching the whales and dolphins in their natural habitat is surely a magical and unforgettable experience!

The most frequently sighted of the whales are the, Sperm (45ft), the Pilot (20ft) and the Humpback (60ft) whales. On rare occasions, you may even get to see an Orca (Killer Whale 30ft). In addition to whale sightings, you will also have the opportunity to see dolphins swimming through the crystal-clear Caribbean waters - sometimes up to 150 at a time. They dazzle and hypnotize us with their spectacular and lively antics.

Your captain for the day will take you out on the water in search of the mammals, and you'll pass quaint fishing villages along the way. While taking in the beautiful sites, enjoy complimentary coffee, tea,soft drinks, mineral water, rum punch and light snacks.

I'm not sure if the drop off and pick up times. We used a taxi go get back and forth to the marina. I'm sure if you contact them, they would have no problem getting you set up with transportation though.
