Sea to Sky
Zip Lining & Catamaran Boat Excursion in St. Lucia
After you board your catamaran sailboat, your crew will help you get comfortable. The boat size will depend on the number of participants. Group size is usually between 70 - 90 guests. There is shaded deck as well as space in the sun to relax. Your boat has restrooms on board. Your trip 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 on this St. Lucia excursion, the magnificent Pitons will be seen rising 2,500 feet from the seashore. The Pitons are two distinct volcanic formations which have been named a World Heritage Site.
From Soufriere, you will board transportation for the ride to Hotwire Adventure Park at Morne Coubaril Estate.
Your zipline adventure begins as you are out-fitted with harness, helmet and gloves and briefed on health and safety guidelines. After a training demonstration, you are ready for the fun and are led up to the first platform from which you are torn between a panoramic view of the bay and the awe of the towering Pitons. While you whiz safely between giant Banyans, your experienced guides keep you informed of the eco-system, spectacular views to look out for and the required standards of our US-built course. This is a great zip for beginners as well as previous "zippers". There are 8 zip lines and the course takes approximately one hour to complete. Guests must be able to climb steps between landing platforms including 47 steps to reach the first platform.
Eight zip lines move you effortlessly through the estate where you can take your own air-borne photos of the Piton and town, before being carried into a canopy of banyan, coconut, plum and mango trees and across a bamboo-shadowed gorge. You can also see, smell and hear the ecosystem thriving in a pond below.
After the thrills of zip-lining enjoy the plantation tour and a creole lunch, then head back to the port to reboard your catamaran. Along the way, a stop will be made in one of the many beautiful bays along the coast for a quick swim to refresh yourself.

Nice Catamaran, wonderful crew and great guides. The day started with a sail to Soufriere where each group was assigned their guide. There were only 4 of us ziplining! AWESOME, and we had the best guide. We were transported to Morne Coubaril Estate for a guided tour through the estate and ziplining. The tour was interesting and though it is a shorter zipline, the scenery is amazing and the staff were great fun. We were served a wonderful buffet lunch on the Estate before returning to the catamaran. Finally, we headed back to Castries with a stop at a beautiful beach for snorkeling and sailed through Marigot Bay. We had an amazing day, all of the crew and tour guides were fantastic. Note - as with all excursions, tips were expected by the tour guide for the Estate and to the zipline crew as well as to our personal guide and the catamaran crew, another $40+ for a couple - our choice but well deserved. I highly recommend this excursion for a full day of fun.

My family had a fantastic time seeing the coastline of St Lucia while traveling on the catamaran. The zip-lining experience was breath-taking at the plantation and my husband and I really enjoyed the experience as first-timers. The Creole lunch was so yummy. We got to see so many different fish snorkeling. This is such an exceptional excursion!

We had a great time on the Sea to Sky tour. The catamaran ride to the other side of the island was nice. They had breakfast fruit and breads available for guests as we departed. Music during ride and they talked about the island history. Once at destination taxi ride took us to an old Sugar cane plantation with the Zip line course. It was a blast! The guides were great and would take pictures and videos for you as you came across towards them on the line. Great group of people both on the boat and at the plantation. Lunch was provided at the plantation too. Lunch drink was fantastic. On the way back after a snorkel stop, the party began. Everyone enjoyed the Rum Punch, and music. The young deck hands were a riot dancing along with the guests and kept the drink coming to those that wanted one. Best part was getting dropped off right in back of our Cruise ship to make sure we got back before departure. Great excursion, love the island and cant wait to go back and spend more days!

This is an excursion you don't want to miss! Amazing right from the moment you meet up with them right to the end ....getting off the Queen of the Carnival. Crew and staff made the 45 min catamaran ride fun and even stopped to view some dolphins and baby whales. Soooo exciting! Once we arrived at our destination we were greated by yet more amazing locals that took us to our zipline destination. You would not believe how comfortable they made everyone feel. They coached you throughout the whole 7/8 lines of zipping! My husband is afraid of heights and they made him feel so comfortable that by the 3rd line he was doing tricks! Thank you to all of you! Truly amazing!!!! I will do this excursion again the next time I'm in st. Lucia
