Went to Martinique with this company in the past and everything was great except this time around it was a bit chaotic. Boarded the vessel early morning and left the dock by 7am. Which was great time. Take note I was traveling with my mom who is a senior. Some miles out to sea the water got very choppy. (I... More

Wave Riders is a powered catamaran service from the beautiful island of St. Lucia to the intriguing French island of Martinique. From beginning to end, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Delicious breakfast and lunch buffets were served onboard as well as a steady flow of alcholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We sat on the top deck in the beautiful sunshine and... More

Out cruise ship used Wave Riders for one of the snorkel excursions. Though the first snorkel site was average, the second one -- a protected area in a small bay -- was fantastic. The boat itself was top notch (notwithstanding the minor engine difficulties on the return trip) -- LOTS of space/room, clean, washrooms, popcorn machine, rum punch, easy boarding... More

This was a trip booked through P& O cruises. The catamaran was in great condition and very clean. The crew were extremely friendly and helpful. The snorkelling was great and we always felt safe with this crew.

We were interested in spending more time on the water and seeing another island. We chose a trip with the St. Lucian Wave Riders to Martinique. The ship sails only on Thursdays so you have no choice with the weather. The crossing to Martinique was fairly rough for the first half but then smoothed out the remainder of the way.... More

Ok so firstly we booked this at our hotel near Castries and we then went on a 45 minute collection drive around other hotels so my advice would be book the tour with the Wave Rider company and then grab a cab if you are in reasonable distance of Rodney Bay. The day we went there were winds of 22... More

Some of the staff were rude and all the staff were focussed on having their own party! The breakfast was appalling - warm mushy unchilled fruit served in polystyrene bowls and the cheapest of white bread and jams! We had to make our own coffee out of an old jar of nescafe with not much coffee left in it! Lunch... More

We were picked up from La Toc but then were driven around picking up other people from other hotels. Nice boat, fairly smooth ride and nice staff. First stop was Duty Free where alcohol was ridiculously cheap even though it's in Euro so buy as many as your suitcase can carry. That day was very hot in Martinique so walking... More
