The Ultimate Land and Sea Adventure will allow you to experience St Lucia as it was meant to be experienced...by land and by sea! This half day journey departs from the Castries Harbor and culminates with a 30-minute exhilarating boat ride to Soufriere. As you near the picturesque town of Soufriere, you will be mesmerized by the twin peaks – The Pitons (two mountainous volcanic plugs), a designated World Heritage Site rising some 2600 feet above sea level.
Your land adventure begins as you are whisked away in an air-conditioned vehicle on your way to Sulphur Springs, the only drive-in volcano in the world. You will know that you've reached the springs by the pungent and unique smell of Sulphur! Once there, you have the option of a guided tour gazing at the steamy, bubbling pools or revitalize yourself in the bathing pools reputed to have therapeutic properties. Changing rooms and showers are available at the Sulphur Springs Park.
After the Sulphur Springs, return to the dock and take a 5-minute boat ride to Sugar Beach formerly known as Jalousie the most beautiful beach on island. At this scenic white sand beach nestled between the Pitons, you will be served an authentic local lunch with complimentary drinks. There is a designated spot for snorkeling near the Petit Piton where you can explore the amazing underwater world beneath you. Not into snorkeling? You may opt to swim in the pristine Caribbean waters or simply relax and sunbath on the beach.
Your adventure continues, as you travel along the beautiful coastline of St Lucia, you will learn about the quaint fishing villages, the people as well as the history of this 238 square-mile island. Your first sightseeing stop is at the Bat Cave, just outside Soufriere, which is home to thousands of fruit bats. Then move on to Anse Chastanet’s black volcanic sand beach perfect for more snorkeling and swimming.
In a stunning and secluded part of the island lies Marigot Bay, also known as one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean. It was also the location for the Dr. Doolittle movie. The scenic Marigot Bay is a safe haven for many yachts during the hurricane season and home to some of the finest restaurants on island.
The last stop on the tour will be at the Natural Bridge, affectionately known as the “Tunnel of Love”, a natural rock formation resembling a woman’s high heels before you head back to Castries.
