Met at the sandals Grande by a very professional crew who want you to have maximum fun on your trip.
Various sites are pointed out with interesting information given about each.
Snorkelling done in a safe environment suitable for weak swimmers as well as more experienced.
Then up to the sulphur springs drive in volcano.
The hot mud baths are one place we wish we could have stayed a wee bit longer.
Then off to Simon's house for a local lunch. Food is first class, again interesting information about plants and vegetation ( cocoa )
Then off to a waterfall for a refreshing dip.
Back to the boat for the ride back to the resort.
This is the best trip we have been on in the Caribbean.
Who says, frank says!
That Simon Say's is the Best!

We were in St. Lucia for 7 days, and did a few excursions. This was the best becuase you get soo many parts of the island with the least amount of time used for a very reasonable price. It's so worth doing the trip from the bottom of the island to the top via boat you save precious hours of your time in paradise! Even when it rained we had a blast. The tour guides were great that captain was fantastic. The food was very very good, make sure you try the hot sauce!

Really enjoyable tour! You can choose to take the catamaran or speed boat (just take a Dramamine if you are prone to motion sickness). I took one just as a precaution, but no one else seemed to get sick. It was really fun and informative, lots of photo ops, stunning views, bays, scenery, mountains, foliage.. just a beautiful island and a beautiful tour. The snorkeling was great, the mineral/mud baths were really awesome, short lived but incredibly effective, your skin feels wonderful! Waterfall is pretty and refreshing. Take a water camera! Lunch (delicious authentic island food-jerk chicken, pastas, salad) is provided with lemonade or water and you can purchase beer or rum punch at the restaurant. On the shuttle back to the boat you can see a bit of the local environment, then back to the boat for a little more rum punch and Piton beer for the ride back to the resort. Bring tip money (not required but wow, do they deserve it, everyone is wonderful). You can reserve at the Resort, some vendors try to sell similar trips on the beach but we opted for the one that Sandals endorsed and was insured. It wasn't that much more expensive for peace of mind.

My Husband and I really enjoyed this tour! The speed boat ride down from the resort was great. The tour guide told us many facts along the ride. We then stopped to snorkel for about 45 minutes. This was the first time that I had been snorkeling and it was amazing! Definitely one of the coolest things that I had ever done. We loved it and wished it was longer! We then parked the boat and took a bus to the volcano and mud bath. This was fun. Simon is a very good tour guide, trying to get everyone involved and have fun. I would recommend showing a little more of the volcano. It really doesn't look like a volcano and you forget where you are as soon as you go down to the mud bath. This was a lot of fun. I recommend that you do this tour very early in your trip so you are not sunburnt! The hot water really hurts sun burn! Then after this we went to eat lunch. Lunch wasn't really very special. It was a lot of pasta dishes and some chicken parts. I would recommend improving this meal to offer something a bit more "cool" than pasta dishes. Maybe a local fish or something else local that we can't get at home. The fact that we were charged cash for drinks was a real turn off. We already paid hundreds of dollars for this tour, which advertised lunch, and now we have to pay if we want a drink? Not to mention the hotel didn't warn us how much money to bring. We simply brought enough to give a tip and buy one souvenir. Needless to say, we had no cash for a drink. After lunch we went to a waterfall. I was a bit disappointed by the waterfall because we literally got in a line, got in the water under the water fall, took a picture, and then got out, one couple at a time. I would recommend choosing a waterfall where there may be a bit more space for couples to enjoy swimming in the waters and relaxing for awhile. Even with these recommendations, this tour was by far the best excursion that we did while on the Island. I would definitely recommend it to everyone!

The tour guides were fun, the trip schedule was awesome and we saw and experienced so much in 5 hours. From the boat trip to the sites to the hot springs to the waterfall. Definitely recommend it!
