Tour Details

St. Lucia is rated as one of the unexploited underwater secrets in the Caribbean. With its pristine and highly diverse coral reefs, pinnacles and shipwrecks, this island offers the visitor the ideal snorkel adventure.

After receiving equipment and filling out the required waiver at the dive shop, you will board your boat and head out from Marigot Bay to the islands sheltered west coast. The boat may be shared by both snorkelers and divers.

Depending on the water and weather conditions that day, your captain will head for the best snorkeling / diving site that day. This may be anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes boat ride away from the dock. Upon arrival, your captain will anchor and snorkelers will be teamed up with their guide (maximum 8 guests per guide) and spend approximately the next 45 - 60 minutes snorkeling the crystal clear waters of St Lucia.

Back on board, a full lunch is served featuring an entree that might be baked chicken, fish, or pork, along with vegetables, salad, rice, or macaroni pie and time to rest. before you are dropped off for your afternoon adventure.

Back on shore, you will be introduced to your kayaking guide and briefed on the safety equipment and technique of kayaking for 20 - 30 minutes. You will then enter the water and take a few practice strokes before setting out.

Paddling from Marigot Bay, you will kayak out to the open sea where you will follow the west coast to the Roseau River, approximately 20 minutes from the departure at Marigot Bay. In the river you will travel along a lagoon and canopied mangroves nestled with birds. From the lagoon you go up river for a short distance then turn back on route to the sea. This section is roughly half an hour on route to the sea. From here, it is back to Marigot.
