Description

Traveling in the Caribbean can be an interesting process for decision making. Often you go to experience the beautiful beaches and blue waters. The problem with this is that you aren't just showing up on a deserted island with a couple marinas. Throughout the islands there is a unique array of sightseeing opportunities that shouldn't be lost behind your gaze into the sea. This excursion provides the perfect combination of local culture without forgetting the best known parts of the Caribbean--snorkeling and sun.

After arriving in Castries, we'll take you on a lovely catamaran sail down the West side of St. Lucia where you'll notice soaring peaks and lush topography. Your Captain knows the best scenic route to take - you'll pass through Marigot Bay, which is a mecca for yachts and considered one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. As you pass Anse La Raye, you will learn about life in a St. Lucia fishing village with beautiful views of the mountains around you and the smells of the fresh catch seeping from the shore.

At the Diamond Botanical Gardens, you will learn about the vast array of trees and flowers that are unique to the area. The flowers here are not all necessarily native to St. Lucia, but they are plentiful and the oxygen is invigorating. Make sure you take a walk to the Diamond Waterfall, which is one of the most colorful on the island as the rock face changes color depending on the mineral content from the rainwater mixed with molten rock from the nearby volcano.

Next, you will take a shuttle to the historical district in Soufrière for a traditional creole style lunch at the Fond Doux cocoa plantation and resort. Years of history make Fond Doux a special place to experience St. Lucia's culture through culinary means.

We've saved the best for last, underground sulfur springs will provide a unique smell to let you know you have arrived at the mud baths. Here, you'll be able to slab on organic mud and let the natural properties of the sulfur mud cleanse and revitalize your body and mind. Once the mud dries, bathe in the natural hot springs. You'll feel gorgeous and healthy!

A celebratory catamaran sail will finish your journey, complete with time to swim, snorkel, and to enjoy some ice cold beverages.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.
