You'll leave the pier and head up to Morne Fortune but not before passing through Castries. When you reach Morne Fortune, expect your jaw to drop at the incredible sight of the harbor and northern coast. Stop at the Howelton Estate, the 18th century home of a dentist which has been converted into a cafe, art studio, and shop. After a nice drive through the countryside, you'll reach the St. Lucia tour's main attraction: Pigeon Island.
At Pigeon Island, you'll have an hour and a half to take advantage of the area's best photo ops. The 44-acre landscape is home to some of the most fascinating flora and fauna St. Lucia. Originally, the place was completely surrounded by water but eventually became connected to the mainland via a causeway back in the 1970s. When you reach the island, you'll be provided with your own beach chair so you can soak up some sun and relax. Feel free to explore the park, or even go hiking up the fort. Shower, restroom, and changing facilities are on site to freshen up. After 90 minutes of fun, you'll be taken back to the ship.
The driver was great, gave us a great tour of part of the island and we had a great 2 hour beach time. The beach was secluded and almost like our own. Worth the money paid.

Von our guide was great, lots of great spots for pictures as we traveled along the countryside very hilly. The pigeon island beach was crowded but nice, no surf, bring a mask and snorkel many tropical fish in the rocks near the beach. Good value

Excellent Day trip. The drive and the beach at the end of the trip was the best. Happy day in paradise. Driver was quite pleasant.

We've never been to the Caribbean before and wanted to do shore excursions that would introduce us to each island. We learned about the culture, industry, history and government while touring this beautiful island. Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We booked prior to our cruise were surprised with a private tour, just the two of us. We enjoyed this very much!

My wife and I were the only 2 on the excursion. We got some great information from the driver that way and he was really personable. We talked not only about the island but got to know how his family lived and the the people around him. The subjects ranged from food to politics. The beach was small but clean and safe. Great experience and a nice break from the ordinary.
