Went to the Sulphur Mud Baths, Waterfall, Marigold Bay, Soufriere, the Pitons and Sugar Beach. The ride back to the Resort with a HOMEMADE RUM PUNCH that will knock your socks off. Benji is a...

This is by far the best boat tour we have ever taken. We were told by Sandals not to book through companies outside of the resort however I have to say.....they did a far better job at taking care of their guests than the tours we booked through the resort. The service and entertainment were exceptional! I loved every minute... More

Spontaneously booked an excursion while laying on the beach one day. This was a fantastic trip........Pitons....mud baths....snorkeling....shopping.....lunch and drinks! This was a great way to see different parts of the island instead of just staying at the resort. Two people in our group weren't excited to go.......this trip ended up being their favorite part of our entire vacation. Skinny Jimmy... More

Highly Recommended! Best tour we've ever taken! Met Lyle on the beach through people who had already taken the tour. Tour guide Benjy made the tour exceptional with all his knowledge of the island. Even though I have some mobility issues I was able to do all the activities. The Real Deal is THE REAL DEAL!!

If you visit the Rodney Bay Area of St Lucia, we highly recommend The Real Deal Boat Tours. The center console boat with twin 350 engines provides a fun and smooth journey down the West Coast of the island with stops for the Mud Baths, swimming under the water fall, fabulous local Creole cruisine for lunch in Soufriere, snorkeling at...

Met Lyle one morning while checking out the resort. We had a group of ten and after he told me all the awesome things we could do, I was sold. Went back and told the group and they were excited.

If you do one thing in St. Lucia, make sure this is it! :) This is truly the "real deal" when it comes to boat tours and it does not disappoint. We were blown away! We boarded the speedboat in the morning and Benji, Skinny Jimmy, and Alvin were very entertaining and informative about the sites were were passing. Benji... More
