“Good vibes, there it is!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Great experience! Far and away the best tour for your money! The crew (Captain Big Willie, Big Al, and The Lion) were great and made sure that everyone was having a good time and telling us all about the Island, the nation, the villages we passed and some of the other landmarks in the area! Big Al really made the trip, his knowledge, passion and overall attitude was perfect and made the trip unforgettable! You get a boat tour of part of the island, stop at a neat little resort dock, then tour some more of the island, park at an amazing bay at the base of the Pitons, take a trip to the volcanic mud bath, wash off the mud in a great waterfall, head back to the bay for a homemade creole buffet overlooking paradise, then you go snorkeling and swimming before heading back to your hotel! Delicious Rum Punch provided throughout!

Would recommend to anyone and everyone who goes to St. Lucia!

“Who knows? - Joe knows!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We booked this trip to celebrate my birthday (on the 6th of November 2012) and it was the right desicion! Vulcano, mudbath, waterfalls, lunch... It was great fun! J.R. told us a lot about the island while we were driving to the mudbath, we had good laughs during the whole trip, rum punsh, music, nice peope, lovely weather - all around a perfect way of birthday celebration.

“The Wild Bunch”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

We chose the Joe Knows Tour of St. Lucia after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. They have an excellent reputation which is richly deserved. Our crew of Captain Big William, Big Al & Snoop Dog were amazing. They had an incredible energy level and degree of enthusiasm which was contagious. My wife & I are in our early 50's and typically a bit reserved, but still found the tour exceptionally enjoyable, much better than expected. We snorkeled, toured the sulfur springs & volcano, enjoyed the waterfall, swam in the bay, saw Marigot Bay and had a wonderful lunch with a view of the Pitons. The crew kept us well entertained (the best air guitar in the West Indies), served copious amounts of rum punch, performed limbo, told jokes and provided some very interesting history and fun facts. We encountered some brief periods of rain but this is typical and did not dull the trip, just be prepared to get wet & protect your gear. We thought the trip was a good value and that we got to see the highlights of this beautiful island. You could tell that this group really loves what they do and genuinely enjoy sharing their home.

“Wow!!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Several trips in one!!! The best on the Island!!!! If you are looking for a boring slow boat ride around the island, this boat is not you. It is filled with a full day of excitement, fun, and maybe a little dancing and music!!

“Great...but a little too much sometimes”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The guys from this tour were great. Really nice and excited, wanting to party all the time - be aware, if you're looking for a romantic place to be, this is NOT your boat. These guys seem more like they're on Spring Break sometimes - not that this is a bad thing, but it's important to know. The only objection I have was regarding the time. They were supposed to drop us at 3PM and stayed on a small beach for too long, which made us get back at our resort at Sandals Halcyon only around 4:30PM. Not to mention my flip flops were missing after we left the boat.
