We are Covid certified by the Ministry of Tourism to operate tours. Cruise down the beautiful west coast of St Lucia in a private speedboat to Soufriere and the Pitons on this half day 4 hour tour.  Choose between our luxury 31' white powerboat "Israel King II" (12 persons max) or our orange Pirogue speedboat "Israel King" (10 persons max). Pick up is from the cruise ship port in Castries, Rodney Bay Marina or from your hotel if it has a dock, at 9am for a morning tour or 1pm for an afternoon tour, returning at 1pm or 5pm respectively.  All tours are private and customised to each group, allowing for maximum flexibility. Enjoy scenic views as you cruise down the coast. Once in Soufriere choose to snorkel and swim at the beautiful snorkel sites and beaches by the Pitons. On the return we make a stop in beautiful Marigot Bay. Both the captain, and the friendly crew will give you a personal tour to remember!

Thanks for your review. Your booking was made through Viator and from the many bookings we receive through Viator you are the first guests to confuse the two boats. We make it very clear through descriptions of the tour and photos the difference between the two boats (and hence there is a pricing difference). The photo you are referring to is the thumbnail photo that accompanies the tour confirmation. We offer a full day tour and either boat can be booked. However, there is only one photo spot for the confirmation. Israel King II is shown as we get more bookings for this boat through Viator. We are sorry you were confused and therefore disappointed on the day, but we really have made it clear for guests booking that there are two boats with very different pricing. We are pleased nonetheless that you enjoyed your day and our beautiful island!
