My family was looking to book a tour to see the pitons, get some snorkeling in, and visit the volcano. Me met Vincent on the beach at The Landings, and at first we were a bit skeptical to book something from a vendor we just met. But the Tripadvisor reviews were uniformly positive, so we took a shot. What a... More

Highly recommend Real Deal! Vincent is an excellent Captain and we loved the boat. Our family of 5 rented out the boat for the entire day and were able to cater the trip how we wanted. Vincent also promised me I wouldn't get sea sick and he was right. We loved the snorkeling off of Sugar Beach and stopping for... More

Vincent sold us this day trip on the beach. There were 7 of us so we just took the whole boat at the same price as the catamaran. Much better than the catamarans that take on 60 to 100 people! We made our own itinerary with Vincent and then Alvin and David made it all happen on board. They made... More

We had an awesome time on this tour from start to finish. Great ride, views and snorkeling. Watch out for the rum punch. It really sneaks up on you. Overall great time! Lyle sucked us in when he got us good spots on the Grande beach on our first day. Glad he did. Good peeps!

I can strongly recommend a day out with Real Deal Boat Tours. If you are at the Sandals Grande you can find Lysle on the beach most days and enjoy the bartering with him. These guys really look after you and give you a great day. No need worry about the authenticity of this outfit. Captain Alvin was a real... More

I highly recommend this speed boat excursion to the Pitons!! Although Sandals Grande St. Lucian offers this excursion through the resort, I would like to recommend using THE REAL DEAL. You can usually find Skinny Jimmy on the beach selling rides. You do not need to be concerned that this outfit is shady or will take your money and run.... More

However ride was very bumpy, they drive very fast we did not mind but some people might. Also, very little shade on boats. Second tour took us to... More

From Salesman Lyle, to Captain Alvin to Tour Guide Ras Benji, it was quite the amazing trip. It was our only excursion of the week, but it covered it all. Out by 9, back by 2, very well priced, lots of beautiful scenery, excellent experiences and delicious food. Comfortable trip on a great boat with a great Captain... slowed down... More
