“Best Day in St. Luica By far. B.K. and Caption Big Wille Were Great!”
Reviewed January 6, 2011

The reason Joe Knows is indorsed by Sandals is not because they are some trashy outfit trying to solicit you on the beach. It’s because they are top notch! I read a review someone else posted endorsing another tour company where they were bashing Joe Knows by saying “Joe’s crams you on a boat with 30-40 people and rushes you through the attractions” this comment is completely false. They take about 12 people out at a time and you get to experience everything St. Lucia has to offer in one day. You get to visit the drive in volcano, mud bath, waterfall, lunch with an amazing view of the Pitons, the “Bat Crack”, Marigot Bay, and snorkeling. These are just the main attractions but you learn much more from the hilarious guides B.K. and Caption Big Willie along the way.

“A riot and a fun loving crew”
Reviewed January 4, 2011

Joe Knows : overall the staff was friendly, informative, and fun

It was an absolute riot. We were with BK and Mario, there was a small engine issue in the beginning, that we had to stop in Marigot Bay and wait for another boat to come and take us to the land portion, but they gave us some of "Mrs. Joe's" rum and it was nice being able to explore the harbor, with all the sailboats and yachts. True to their saying "No Pressure, No Problem" they worked on the engine a bit, then just brought in another boat. As BK stated, one thing about St. Lucian's they don't quit.

I think some people could be upset with this slight delay, but our crew seemed to adapt really well and again the other travelers were really enjoyable to be around. The land portion was nice, we went to the volcano, I opted out of the mud bath, but my fiancée joined in and I took pictures. From there we went to a "waterfall" which wasn't truly my idea of a waterfall but it was fun. From there we went back to the boat launch and were provided lunch. The lunch was all local cuisine and very good. There was a small bar, so we were able to enjoy our new favorite beer "Pitons".

From there, we went and took pictures in front of the Pitons, with the crew taking pictures of each couple either on the bow or the stern. We also had a fun time snorkeling, and drinking some more of the rum.

“Highlight of our trip and best tour on the island!”
Reviewed January 4, 2011

The Joe Knows tour exceeded our expectations. You get to see the highlights of the island from sea (you spend enough time in the car riding to and from the airport) and the tour guides were incredible! They go out of their way to make sure you are having fun and will take pictures of you with your camera so that you have great pictures by the Pitons, waterfalls, and of course the mud bath. BK was an awesome tour guide and it was definitely a tour we will always remember. Do it, you won't regret it!

“MUST DO!!!!!”
Reviewed December 27, 2010

I heard about "Joe's Knows" from trip advisor, and contacted them through their website prior to heading to St. Lucia. I WAS NOT DISAPOINTED! I went on my honeymoon and this tour was the highlight of our trip! Big Al was an incredible tour guide, as was the "the captain" and all the "Joe's Knows" workers. We also loved meeting the real "JOE!" I loved how they collected our camera's and made sure to take pictures to help capture the amazing day, without us worrying about getting our camera wet or dirty in the mud. THIS IS an AMAZING TOUR! It is a MUST DO!!! AJ

“Who knows??? JOE KNOWS!”
Reviewed December 20, 2010

We just returned from our honeymoon at Sandals Regency and some of our favorite memories are from the JOE KNOWS tour! The crew was amazing! They were very knowledgeable and accommodating and we felt very safe during our tour. We also had a LOT of fun - these guys know how to entertain! Loved Big Al and Captain Big Willy! :) We spent the day cruising the island on a speed boar, stopping off to see Marigot Bay, snorkeling at the Pitons, coating ourselves in the mud of the sulfur springs, and rinsing clean in the waterfalls. And our Joe Knows tour guide captured pictures on our camera at every stop. And our meal at the Pitons restaurant was one of the best of our trip!
