A great way to see the highlights of St. Lucia, cheaper than trying to do it on your own and you get to see the wonders of St. Lucia, a totally different and better experience than trying to navigate the island by car and a lot safer.
It was excellent. We were able to get off the catamaran to see the volcanic area, the botanical gardens and also have lunch with the great view of the Pitons. Much more than the normal sail snorkel trips I've been on before.
We had a super time on the catamaran trip! The staff and tour guides were great! The rain forest and waterfall were beautiful! We hit some bad weather on the way back, so it took a very long time over very choppy waters, but that's not their fault. The tour buses in Soufriere were not air conditioned and the lunch was average. It was 10-20 cheaper through Viator than the travel agent.

Great value. You cover pretty much everything there is to see in St. Lucia with this tour. This sail is not for people with motion sickness.
This was a brilliant couple's day out with one of the most enigmatic captains I've ever seen! Be prepared for a very loud reggae party music and lots of boozing for much of the night! The staff are great, the snorkeling is great, and the volcano and garden visits are just about the right length, there is not too much hanging about at either one. One warning though: don't expect too much from the lunch in the restaurant, it was pretty basic.
Fabulous day, excellent polite and helpful crew, the pick up at our hotel and transport to the boat was extremely well run and went without a hitch.
The trip was easy to organize with Viator and the crew was entertaining!
The only comment that I have is that the transportation to the pier was not included as suggested because our hotel was not on the North end of the island. Still, this was a fantastic trip!
Great trip on the catamaran. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. This is a good way of seeing some of the key sites in one trip, particularly if you are short on time. The buffet lunch was also good and the snorkeling excellent. Plenty of rum punch and beer along the way!
This is a good tour. You get to see a lot of the island in just one day: awesome scenery at the spot for swimming and snorkeling, continental breakfast and limitless drinks on the boat but the staff was more interested in creating a party atmosphere on board than anything else. Average buffet-style lunch (nothing wrong with it but nothing to write home about). All in all, I'd recommend this tour.
Barefoot Holidays staff were great. Kept us entertained all night. Dancing and drinks were flowing. Gave them 4 stars because I wish they told us what the activities for that day were. If you're going on this trip, its about 8 hours long and make sure you wear your swim suit because there are many activities planned for the whole day (snorkeling, swimming) aside from seeing the gardens, the volcano and doing the mud bath. The crew kept us entertained on the way back by drinking games and lots of dancing and fun music. Thank you again!!!
A great trip and a restful day out, the trip out on the catamaran was great with snacks and drinks, it was then on to the botanical gardens, our guide was a funny pleasant man, very informative, then on for dinner, sorry lunch, I don't think local food is the best but that's just my choice, but it was ok and clean plates were left, not a bad sign, we then had the choice of the mud bath or going to the volcano, we took the mud bath which when talking to other passenger's seemed the best option, It was like being a kid again getting caked in mud, only this time we didn't get told off by mum, then it was back to the boat to go home with a short stop for a swim, a bit too short for me, then there was the trip back to the dock with some game's going on, which to me just seemed to block the drinks counter up so you couldn't get a drink, but all in all a good trip if not a bit expensive, but then again most things are in St Lucia are.
