Soufriere Sail

Excellent staff and quality of food!
January 08, 2024
We had a wonderful day sailing in St Lucia. This 7-hour sail had everything, snorkeling, sight-seeing, fun, food and staff were great! One of the best excursions we've been on! Even though it rained on us on and off through the sail, it did not damper the fun. The boat was full, by the time we boarded, we didn't have a place to sit, and some of the seats were wet from rain. We would definitely do this one again!

Very well organised and fun trip. The catermaran trip was very relaxing and seeing the pitons by sea is totally mesmerising! The trip to falls and sulphur baths was brilliant. On the way back there time to snorkel on a private beach. The lunch was delicious. The staff were great. Absolutely book this trip it was worth every penny. Oh and go easy on the Rum Punch on the way Back!!!

Basically Perfect
April 27, 2023
It's hard to convey the level of perfect the experience was without an entire blog post, but I can't imagine spending our day in St. Lucia any other way. The sailing was beautiful, the food and drinks were great, and the crew were incredibly nice (and genuinely cared). The excursion covers a lot of ground, but you almost don't notice in the midst of things because their planning, communication and execution is flawless.

Had a fun day on this excursion. Staff was very fun. Wonderful lunch on the boat. And nice options to do the mud bath or view the mud pits. Waterfall was a viewing spot with a quick picture, and mud baths had a long line. You basically rubbed mud on yourself and then quickly washed it off. The sail was beautiful and so we’re the Pitons. The travel by van was all through a few miles of a once volcano that is now nice vegetation.

Wonderful day of exploring St. Lucia and sailing
December 06, 2019
Even though it rained much of the day, this was such a memorable and pleasant day of sailing to Soufriere as we approached the Pitons. The covered catamaran provided shelter from the rain, soft refreshments in the morning, and open bar in the afternoon. Lunch was delicious. There was a bit of confusion about using the mud baths which were offered as an alternative to seeing the volcano. If mud baths are your thing, do make sure to talk with the tour guide before you arrive at Sulphur Springs.

St Lucia is beautiful. Of all the excursions we took the "guides" on this one were the most boring.

The volcano tour was a bit boring and we wish we had done the mud bath. The sail was beautiful and snorkeling was so clear! Worth the money for the all day trip!

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a day on the water! We were efficiently transported from the port to the dock where our catamaran was waiting for us. Our transit hosts were pleasantly efficient. Once on the catamaran, our hosts were gracious, informative about the coastline and entertaining. We sailed to the Pitons and a clever young staffer immediately engaged all who wanted their picture taken. When we stopped in the snorkeling area, much to our surprise, a gently sloping stairwell led to the water. In a previous experience, we had to drop over the side and then lift ourselves up and over (at 70+ years, that was challenging!) This catamaran & staff were top shelf. Lunch & rum punch were great and only bested by the Caribbean music that encouraged us to dance the entire way back to Port. We took an excursion at every port and must confess, this was our favorite!

Lovely day, a bit crowded
May 19, 2017
We just recently did this excursion (end of April). The catamaran was beautiful, the ship personnel were so so friendly. We loved the sail to the Pitons. What a beautiful morning! The botanical garden was small but kind of neat. Then when it came time for the volcano and mud bath you had to choose one... I think we were maybe running a bit late. Both options were really crowded... and it was the end of tourist season. The buffet lunch was delicious. Unfortunately it was rainy for most of the sail back. My husband still did the snorkel, but said he couldn't see much & there was a quick stop in Margot Bay. The catamaran stopped right at the cruise dock upon return. If we were to go back to St. Lucia, we would book probably just book a half or full day sail with this company and forgo the land portions. Or go spend a day in Margot Bay.

March 17, 2017
This was a lovely excursion. We met the guide who combined the Carnival ship people with our people to board a catamaran. We sailed out and docked to pick up a van where we went to the botanical gardens, volcano and had lunch at a cocoa plantation. Back to the catamaran, we then went to a cove area where we could get off the boat and swim/snorkel. That was one negative b/c the water looked dirty. We could have gone to a cleaner spot. One other thing that was annoying were the locals who rowed out to the boat to try to sell their wares. It's a given when you see them in port and they nag you, but we didn't like the fact that they came out to where the boat was anchored. Otherwise it was a great day.

We loved every bit of this tour the volcano the lunch and the swimming as well as the sailing and the rum punch!! Only two organisational things marred this tour. First we started late and finished late. If people are not there on time, the tour should start without them. Second, the boat sailed at 4.30 and we arrived back at the dock which was a 5 min walk from the boat at 4.28. This caused extreme anxiety for us and spoiled a fantastic day.

This was a full day of activities. We had a beautiful sail around the island. Gorgeous view of the Pitons. Although a bit crowded, the volcanic mud bath was wonderful. Your skin will never feel that good again. We wished we could do that on a daily basis. Lunch was fantastic. Our only complaint was the local vendors trying to sell you there goods while you were swimming at the beach stop. We've never experienced such pushy vendors on any other island. The crew even let us off right next to our ship so we weren't late to board. The crew was fantastic, they were very organized. This excursion was well worth the money (which by the way ) was cheaper than purchasing directly from cruise ship.

Sailed out and had time to snorkel and then back to dock---about 15min before we were supposed to be back on cruise ship.

Highlight of Our Trip
May 10, 2016
We absolutely loved this excursion! It was the highlight of our trip. The sailing in the beginning was nice and leisurely with muffins, fruit and drinks. The workers on the boat took our picture in front of the Pitons. Departing was a little confusing as there were several tours on the same boat. Once departed, we took a little bus ride through the town and to a botanical garden where our guide gave us a nice tour through the gardens and to the waterfall. After that we made our way to the drive up volcano. We opted for the mud bath while others toured the volcano. The mud bath was crazy and busy but when else do you get to do this? Our guide told us to opt for the lighter colored mud as it wouldn't stain our swimsuits. The water is very warm but your skin will feel amazing and soft once you rinse off. The whole area smells strongly of sulphur but that's expected as it is a volcano. Once finished here, we headed to a cocoa plantation for lunch. It was a full Caribbean buffet and it was delicious! Such a cute setting and we got to try to some new foods (worth it and rum punch is included). Then we headed back to the boat and sailed to a snorkel spot. We only had 20-30 mins to snorkel but it was a nice spot as we saw lots of beautiful fish and coral. Then it was back on the boat for our sail back. The crew played some fun music and the rum punch was flowing. They just kept serving them to us without us even having to ask. The crew and the guides on this excursion were superb. They made the day very enjoyable which isn't hard to do with such an incredible setting. We would do this again! Everyone we told on our cruise wished they had done this excursion!

A Bit of All the Best of St. Lucia
February 03, 2016
One of our top experiences of our vacation. The tour was very well organized and clear about expectations. They gathered the group at our port, and we had a short 5 minute van ride to the ship (some ships were docked on the other side of the bay next to the tour boat). The tour group was very professional and clearly marked in their Carnival Sailing gear. They welcomed us onto the large catamaran, and we had about 35-40 people total. There was shade and outdoor areas, as well as ship restroom. Our guide offered light breakfast, fruit, muffins, local food, and juice for free. We then sailed out of the bay along the coast to town of Soufriere. Along the way our guide would point out areas of interest. The sailing itself was very pleasant and fun trip. We then pulled right into the heart of Sourfriere and the different activities were separated for different vans. You will have to choose for the volcano portion if you want to do the mud bath or the drive-in narrated tour. We then visited the botanical garden for a guided tour of the plants (he will expect a separate tip), as well as a view of the waterfall. Next the tour visited the volcano, and those that were doing the mudbath got out. Again, they were well organized and directed us where to leave our bags as they watched them, how to apply the mud, and took pictures for those with a waterproof camera. I was most impressed with the lunch stop. It was at Fond Doux Holiday Plantation, and was a delicious buffet of local foods that even a picky eater would be happy with. We ate in a private outdoor room (shirt and shoes required), and had a chance to explore as they dried cocoa beans. Next, we returned to the boat for snorkeling with a view of the Pitons. The catamaran ride back was another great ride, and a quick detour into a secluded bay featured in films. They dropped us off right next to each cruise ship. We were very impressed by the service. Traveling on Royal Caribbean Jewel of the Seas.

Nice snacks and rum punch on catamaran. Excellent buffet lunch of native dishes. Felt like we were on ""The Bachelor"" (some episodes were filmed here). At volcano, get a choice of doing sulfur mud springs or guide talk on volcano. Includes guided tour of botanical gardens. Guide LeeAnn was great at first aid when I gashed my finger.

We traveled along the coastline and to Soufriere and was able to see the Pitons almost the whole way. Once we got into the harbor, there was time for photos before docking. You could choose to do the mud bath or botanical gardens. We chose the botanical gardens, which were beautiful. But, others on our tour chose the mud baths and were very happy as well. We then took a short bus rid to see the 'active' volcano. Be prepared, it's a very strong odor, but experience the volcano was the highlight of our day (and personally my week!). We were then taken over to a local resort to eat a delicious local meal, buffet style. After lunch, we got back on the catamaran and were taken to an area to snorkel for about 25-30 minutes, then took a leisurely ride on the catamaran back to the port. Even though it was a full day, I never felt rushed. It was a nice combination of being a tourist and being immersed in St. Lucia's culture!

All day fun!! We completely enjoyed this day long excursion and the variety of activities that it included. It was an awesome and fun day spent in St. Lucia - and we'd definitely do this tour or a variation of this tour again!

2nd Time Doing This and Would Do It Again!
April 25, 2015
We took the Soufriere Sail in 2013 and loved it so much we couldn't wait to do it again this year! This is the only repeat excursion we have ever done so that should say something. Sailing to Soufriere is both relaxing and thrilling. The Botanical Garden has beautiful exotic plants. We ate at a plantation (different from 2013) but enjoyed both locations. The volcano is ok (be prepared for the rotten egg smell)! My hubby enjoyed swimming/snorkeling while I just relaxed on the catamaran. It rained on the return trip both times but that just added to the fun as the rum punch is flowing and the dance party is a blast (Follow The Leader, The Wobble, etc.)! The Carnival Sailing staff is outstanding!

Worth booking

The Soufriere Sail was well worth the trip. It is nice that the trip is by catamaran and land tour. Lunch was delicious and the crew and guides were great. Definitely worth booking.

For the first time we booked off ship and it was a fantastic experience. The best was the crew and the places we visited. It had something for everyone. Snorkeling, sightseeing, lunch. It was a full day of fun.

This excursion was the highlight of our cruise. I was traveling with my 71 year old mom and took a chance on the Catamaran. We had so much fun. To sum it up, my mom is still talking about her excursion in St. Lucia.

This was my first time ever visiting St. Lucia and went there with Carnival Cruise Lines. I booked this tour as a separate excursion. I went by myself and had an amazing time, the tour guides were amazing, friendly, and really made sure everyone had a fun time. I will never forget this experience, it was well worth the money and time, amazing and beautiful.

The Best day
January 17, 2013
The best day of my cruise vacation. We saw dolphins swimming along the boat, scenery was magnficent while on catamaran going to Soufrière,Mud bath is a MUST very relaxing and soothing (but a little smelly but who cares everyone does!!!!) Food is excellent, the view is gorgeous. The only down side is we had to split for the mud bath and volcano for lack of time.

Outstanding & Spectacular!
January 04, 2013
This was the best excursion we took during our week cruise and we had some good ones. The catamaran trip was beautiful and relaxing. The crew was very friendly and a lot of fun! The view of the Pitons was magnificent and just that alone would have made this trip worthwhile - but there was a LOT more! When we got to Soufriere, we had a nice driver who gave us a lot of local information as he took us to the beautiful and very interesting Botanical Gardens. Then we were taken through the gardens by another wonderful guide who showed us a lot of amazing rain-forest plants and flowers and took us to a very unique waterfalls. Then, it was back in the taxi to a local open-air restaurant, high up on a hillside overlooking Soufriere and a magnificent view of the Pitons. This was the most beautiful view I've ever seen while eating a meal!! Oh, and the restaurant was also nice, clean, and the food was good! Following lunch, it was a short trip up to the volcanic mud baths! This had to be done and we all bathed in a 110 degree hot volcanic stream and slathered ourselves with volcanic mud! Crazy, but fun - but be warned, any light colored bathing suits can be temporarily or permanently stained gray afterward. Following that fun, we went back into town and back onto the catamaran for the long sail back to our port. This was when the real party began with great music and some excellent rum punch! HIGHLY Recommend this excursion!!
