This was by far the best excursion I have done on any vacation. Our guides were amazing - entertaining and gave fun facts about the island. They took us to the most beautiful spots on the island, including the Pitons. We snorkeled in between the two Pitons (highest peaks on St. Lucia), then went to the volcanic mud springs in Souifre. After that, they took us to see a bat cave and the beautiful rock formation where they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean. Lunch was provided (and honestly the best thing my husband and I ate during our trip), rum punch and beer is also provided if you choose to partake. We ate an authentic St. Lucian lunch on the waterfront in a small bay where they filmed Dr. Doolittle (original), after this we took a short ride back to the resort (Sandals Grand St. Lucian). Our guide stopped and let us go for a short swim before taking us back. This is a MUST do and the cost is actually less than booking through Sandals. It was amazing, please book these guys! They are great.

Charlie may initially seem like a pesky salesman approaching you on the beach but don’t ignore him! He provided a great sales pitch and convinced us to purchase this tour, which was was well worth it. Since we couldn’t hop around the island due to covid, this tour allowed us to do several things we wished to making our St Lucia trip seem more “complete.” We departed the Sandals Grande St Lucian resort and on the way to the Pitons, Terry (our tour guide) and Gavin (our captain) provided a ton of information about the island as we passed by the entire west coast...and they were quite entertaining! As we approached the Pitons, Terry had each individual couple sit at the front of the boat for a beautiful picture with the Pitons in the background. I read some reviews about purchasing photos but Terry took all of ours on our individual cell phones (in front of the Pitons and at the mud bath). We then stopped at Sugar Beach for some snorkeling. Following there we went for the mud bath in Soufriere. Thereafter we enjoyed a delicious lunch from a local restaurant back on the boat. Apparently pre-covid they used to take you to eat inside the restaurant but our meals were individually packed for us to enjoy on the boat. The group of couples with us along with Terry/Gavin made it a wonderful experience. Definitely would recommend it.

My boyfriend and I had an awesome time of this excursion. It was the perfect way to see the west coast of St. Lucia. There was never a dull moment and we never felt rushed or overly crowded. In our opinion, the price was worth it just for the boat ride! We saw Marigot Bay and the Pitons. Went snorkeling, to the mud bath, waterfall, jumped off the boat, and had an awesome lunch. Gavin, Terry, and Jameson were entertaining and a great crew. BUY THE PHOTOS!! The quality is out of this world! Jameson took pictures of everyone throughout the entire trip and offered an absolutely amazing deal on them afterward. We have 70 some high-quality, amazing photos. He emails JPEGs to your email.

During our first trip to the beach at the Sandals Grande we ran into a guy wearing an old Michigan hat. His name was Skittles. He helped us secure some beach chairs and then gave us his sales pitch. You want to blow him off, but you can't. He starts out by letting you know his operation is insured and the safety features of his boats. Next he shows photos of where you will be going. The trip itself was amazing! Very nice boat, great crew. Tour down the Caribbean side of the island, snorkeling at the Pitons, Mud bathes, waterfalls, great lunch at local eatery, return to Sandals by water . Logistically perfect, Great price($110/per)-always felt SAFE. Skittles-you owe me a free T-shirt next time I visit:)
