Tours & Rates
All St. Lucia boat tours with Israel King are private, so the itinerary is tailor made to each group's interests. The pick up can be arranged from the cruise ship terminal in Castries, Rodney Bay Marina or hotels with a dock. Typically a day tour to Soufriere includes a leisurely cruise down the west coast of St. Lucia, an area of outstanding natural beauty, to Soufriere and the majestic twin Piton mountains (an UNESCO World Heritage Site). The experienced and friendly guide will point out interesting sites along the way including the picturesque Marigot Bay, the charming fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries, the Tunnel of Love, bat cave and various beaches and coves. Once in Soufriere, many guests choose to snorkel or swim in the marine reserve and spend some beach time at Sugar Beach and / or Anse Chastanet. There are three good snorkel sites down the coast and as the tour is private, the time at one or all three of these is flexible. Snorkel gear is provided.
Some guests like to take an optional shore excursion once in Soufriere to visit the Drive-In Volcano / Sulphur Springs and Piton waterfall. There are other popular options for the land tour including the Botanical Gardens, Tet Paul hiking trail, Jerusalem and Toraille waterfalls. Please let us know and we can arrange an itinerary for you. The taxi is arranged to pick up guests from the dock in Soufriere and our guide accompanies the guests. The taxi is payable directly by guests ($40 USD for 1-4 persons and $10 USD for additional persons), and there are some small local entrance fees.
A well-stocked cooler with beer, water and soft drinks is available to guests throughout the Soufriere tour. Lunch is not included but a good local and inexpensive Creole restaurant on the Soufriere waterfront can be recommended.
On the way back up the coast, a stop can be made in Marigot Bay, described as "The most beautiful bay in the Caribbean", at one of the waterfront bars or restaurants, before returning to the cruise ship terminal or Rodney Bay.
If you have children under 12 years in your party, please let us know as we can provide a reduced rate for them.
