If you made it this far do not miss the tremendous beauty St. Lucia's land and water have to offer. Great snorkeling and beaches. Highly recommend snorkeling with a PFD, currents can become tiring depending on the location.

Traveled fro Castries by boat to this area with Captain Mango 758-718-2422. Nice boat, very fast. This is the premiere scenic area in St Lucia. Our Captain called a qualified guide so we could hike the rainforest there. Great trip!

The area is very popular with the large catamaran boat trips so there can be a lot of people in the water at one time. It is along... More
