Soufriere Catamaran Sail Tour in St. Lucia
"Come Sail Away," the Styx song beckons. You'll be glad you joined the Soufriere Sail Tour and did just that.
After you board your catamaran sailboat, your crew will help you get comfortable. The boat size will depend on the number of participants. The group size is usually between 70 and 90 guests. There is a shaded deck as well as space in the sun to relax. Your boat has restrooms on board. Your St. Lucia catamaran tour begins as you sail southbound for approximately 2 hours from Ganters Bay along the west coast to the town of Soufriere. Along the way you will see world-famous Marigot Bay and the villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries.
As you sail into the town of Soufriere, the magnificent Pitons will be seen rising 2,500 feet from the seashore. The Pitons are two distinct volcanic formations that have each been named a World Heritage Site.
From Soufriere, you will board your mini-coach for the land portion of your adventure, which lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours. After your trip past the Pitons, you will visit the Sulphur Springs, the world's only "drive-in" volcano. You will have the option to take a tour of the volcano , or dip into the hot springs for a mud bath. Afterwards, you will see spectacular Diamond Falls and the Botanical Gardens before heading to a local restaurant, where you will have 45 minutes to an hour for lunch.
After lunch, we will begin the sail back to Castries. A sail of approximately 20 minutes brings the CAT to a picturesque secluded bay, where you will anchor for approximately 45 minutes of swimming and snorkeling at your leisure from the boat. During the next hour, we will sail north towards the harbor, with a quick sail into Marigot Bay (where the films Dr. Doolittle, Fire Power and Superman 2 were filmed) for photos. Then it's on to Castries Harbour for your return home. Throughout the day, keep your eyes open for playful dolphins that often swim alongside our catamaran.
