St Lucia Snorkeling
Snorkeling in St. Lucia Day Trip
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.
