St. Lucia is rated as one of the unexploited underwater secrets in the Caribbean. With its pristine and highly diverse coral reefs, pinnacles and shipwrecks, this St. Lucia excursion offers the visitor the ideal snorkel adventure - one not to be missed!
Departing from the cruise pier area, you will be transferred to Marigot Bay for check-in at the dive shop. After receiving equipment and filling out the required waiver, you will board your boat and head out from Marigot Bay to the island's sheltered west coast. The boat may be shared by both snorkelers and divers.
Depending on the water and weather conditions that day, your captain will head for the best snorkeling and diving site. This may be anywhere from a 15 to 45 minute boat ride from the dock. Upon arrival, your captain will anchor and snorkelers will be teamed up with their guide (maximum eight guests per guide) and spend approximately the next 45-60 minutes snorkeling the crystal-clear waters of St. Lucia.
Back on board, a full lunch is served featuring an entree that might be baked chicken, fish, or pork, along with vegetables, salad, rice, or macaroni pie. This will provide some time to rest before the captain makes his way to your second snorkeling site.
At the second site of your St. Lucia tour, you will also have 45 - 60 minutes to snorkel over reefs teaming with tropical fish. After your second snorkel stop, you will make your way back to Marigot Bay and then to your cruise ship.
Average time of the tour, including transfers is 5 hours but may vary based on the snorkel sites visited that day. Snorkeling is from the boat at anchor so guests should have a general knowledge of swimming.
This St. Lucia port tour shares the same boat as the St Lucia Certified Two Tank Dive for parties wanting to split up, but be together. Certified divers should sign up for the scuba dive at the same departure time as the snorkel tour.

Did this one several years ago, had the same great dive guides of Alvin and Dylan! Preferred the stops previously, but they needed to pick up another diver in a different city.

The team of Alvin and Dylan were great diving and snorkeling guides! We love the smaller group and great service, including lunch! The 2nd time around in April we went to different dive locations due to picking up another diver in another town. This spot was not as impressive as other locations.

The weather was tough, it rained mostly all day. However the captain & crew were very friendly and helped us to make the most out of the weather. The scenery was amazing, in between the low clouds & rain. My young daughter was very hesitant to snorkel, especially in the chilly rain, and the crew took time to ensure she was happy. They even put her on a boogie board and towed her to the beach to hang out while we snorkeled. Overall, a great day and would definitely book this excursion again.

We enjoyed a second diving experience with Dive Fair Helen in October. Our previous dive with them was July 2015. Same friendly guys, same great experience. Can't wait to dive St.Lucia again next year!
Good locations with colorful fish, sponges, and urchins. Guide did a good job of keeping track of everybody and getting people out of the water when they got cold or tired. Enjoyed the homemade feast onboard between sites. Friendly competent crew. Was able to keep diving family members and snorkelers together on the same trip/boat.
