Soufriere Catamaran Sail Excursion 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 excursion 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. 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.

Very good excursion. My sister in law was never on a catamaran and I convinced her she would like it and have a good time. Great day, friendly personnel, and met a lot of friendly passengers and had some great conversations. Would highly recommend. Never had a bad catamaran experience.
It was a packed trip. The mud bath was excellent. It was raining in botanical garden. Boat trip was fun.
This tour was awesome. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the tour was operated at a good pace. We did not feel rushed and were able to enjoy this beautiful island.
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.
