My wife and I are so happy we booked this tour with Skinny Jimmy. The weather on our day was awful and some planning had to be changed. Everything worked out. We felt like family with Skinny Jimmy, and his brother Benji, and Capt Alvin. They were more interested in us and making sure we were having a blast, then... More

Simply superb, fun packed, safe, tour of some of the prime tourist places to visit on the island. The boat is very nice and rivals any of the competing companies if you like power and speed. The trip leaves early from Sandals Grande Lucian but it's worth it to get ahead of the crowds at the mid baths and waterfalls.... More

Skinny Jimmy will take care of you. Jimmy has his tour running like clockwork. You will beat the crowds, see the sites, meet some new friends and see it all from one of the nicest boats on the island! You will be safe. You will have fun. If you take another tour, you'll kick yourself when he pulls into shore;)... More

My husband and I wanted to see and do as much as we could in St. Lucia during our week-long honeymoon in November. Early in our trip, we met Skinny Jimmy on the beach near the Sandals Grande. There were other tours being offered through the resort, but the Real Deal Boat Tour was less expensive and also seemed to... More

We were visiting the island for our first trip and met Skinny Jimmy. The boat tour we had was fantastic. We went to the volcano and had a mud bath, the water falls, the downtown market and had lunch with authentic island food. The value of this tour was a huge savings from other in the area and we could... More

Truly outstanding tour with Skinny Jimmy, Ras Benjie and Captain Alvin. Left out of Sandals Grande at 8:30am and returned at 3pm. They have a very safe and very powerful speedboat that took us to volcanic mud baths, the Pitons, snorkeling, shopping, lunch and to a waterfall...with plenty of rum punch and beer on the return trip home. Very entertaining... More

Go with Exodus. Other tours they solicit on the beach offer the same experience but one wanted as much as over $400 for a couple. Lyle's offer is $220 with a $150 deposit and he swipes cards. Best time we had on the honeymoon hands down. Don't be nervous that it's not through Sandals. They are very friendly, accommodating, and... More

My husband and I visited the Sandals Grande in St. Lucia for our honeymoon and did the boat tour with Skinny Jimmy and the rest of the crew. It was the highlight of our week! They were very accommodating and showed us all a great time! From the mud bath, to the snorkeling, and the local cuisine we had for... More

If you want to have a fabulous time and and see St. Lucia you need to see Lyle and Skinny Jimmy. Great boat and great crew. One of the best excursions I've ever experienced.

Oct 2016- stayed at the Windjammer. Captain Dell described a great day at sea & Delivered. His co-mate was Dave who's very knowledgeable about the islands & very charismatic. By water is the best way to have a full day 9-4: sugar beach, black sand beach, waterfalls, Pitons/Volcano, mud bath, local food & saves you an hour to/from in comparison... More
