We spent our honeymoon at the Sandals Regency on St. Lucia. One of our excursions was the St. Lucia Catamaran Day Sail through Viator. The trip included a van service from our hotel to the Windjammer resort about an hour with traffic and 2 other hotel stops. We started our trip with a 2 hour sail to the city of Soufriere. The trip was mainly powered by engines, but the captain did stop for an all out sail which was lovely. He turned off all of the music so that we could hear the sails and the breeze. After we arrived at the dock in Soufriere, we toured the volcano, the waterfalls, and lunch at a cocoa plantation. All were absolutely beautiful and our buffet lunch was delicious. 3 hours later, we were back on our boat and headed North. We stopped for a 45 minute swim-snorkel break before returning to Castries. We learned from other guests at the hotel that the day sail trip hit a lot of the same tour stops as the jeep tours, so we would recommend doing one or the other sail or jeep. Our preference is always to sail. Overall, it was a great trip. The crew and captain were very hospitable and entertaining. We would definitely recommend this package to anyone traveling to St. Lucia that wants to see the island without renting a car. Thank you to the "Endless Summer" and her crew!
The trip was great. Crew was very helpful and fun. The snorkeling location was a bit crowded with other catamarans also there. Lunch was very good.
Loved the trip, very well organized. Tour leaders were very good. Only thing I thought was poor was the "Bay of Pigs" we stopped to snorkel in. Too crowded, water not clean, too many vendors, not even good snorkeling. Otherwise a fun trip.
The catamaran sail was amazing! My only complaint is that it was supposed to have also included a stop at the botanical gardens to see the Diamond Waterfalls and I was so disappointed we didn't stop there. I would highly recommend this but make sure they take you everywhere that you have paid for to go!
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!
