Day Trip from St Lucia?

I am planning a vacation to St Lucia and want to visit Martinique for a day while we are there. I want to know if anyone has any advice on getting the ferry from Castries to Fort de France. And whether or not visiting La Pagerie Museum (birthplace of Josephine Bonaparte) is a possibility from Fort De France in a 1 day excursion? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

Hi there,

See

stlucia-guide.info/getting.around/…

for the options. Castries to FDF at most 1 x per day so does not fit a day trip it seems. Castries to Marin last fall was 2 x per day but timed more for daytrip from Martinique to Lucia than v.v.

Trois Ilets from FDF is about 45 mins by taxi off-peak and costs 70-75 euro one way; for return (if taxi waits for you) maybe 120-130 euro. From Marin to Trois Ilets should be slightly cheaper than this, by road this is shorter than FDF (not as the crow flies)...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
