What You Can Expect

St Lucia Shore Excursion: ATV Tour

Ride an ATV in St Lucia!

Begin your St Lucia shore excursion upon pickup from the Castries cruise port and head to the ATV base camp. Your friendly guide will put you at ease as you climb aboard your comfortable, fully automatic Yamaha ATV for a fun ride!

Follow your guide along nature trails through a working banana plantation and stop to hear about farm operations. Here, you'll learn about banana plants and how the industry was once St Lucia's top commerce.

Pass through small settlements and watch locals going about their daily tasks en route to the Marquis Estate, established in 1723. Situated on St Lucia’s lovely northeast coast amid some of the Caribbean’s most attractive terrain, the Marquis Estate was one of the island’s largest private estates during its 18th-century heyday.

From this breathtaking 500-acre (202-hectare) site, located in a lush tropical valley, take in sweeping views of majestic Marquis Bay, where pristine white sands meet clear, turquoise waters. You’ll also get a get a glimpse of St Lucia’s past with relics such as a water wheel, an old locomotive, ruins of a sugar mill, and even slave quarters that housed men and women who toiled under British rule until their emancipation in 1833.

Ride to another lookout point and stop for fruit-juice refreshments as you view one of the Caribbean's most picturesque beaches. Admire some of the best tropical scenery on this side of the Atlantic at the top of Grande Anse Beach. Your guide will tell you about the green, hawksbill and leatherback turtles that lay their eggs from March to August before you head back to the base camp. Hear about local researchers’ efforts to track the turtles, which swim great distances to return to their nesting sites, and then get dropped off at the Castries cruise port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Fantastic tour. When we arrived my wife was concerned, she had to drive her own ATV. No riding double despite picture. Only doubles are parents and kids. They were great. Trained us how it worked and then put my wife up front where they could keep an eye on her. By the end of the ride she was stopping on a steep incline with no worries. She loved it and wants to go again. Very nice staff, top grade equipment.

This tour was the highlight of our trip! A little confusion regarding where they were picking us up. So call ahead to confirm this detail but otherwise excellent tour!!

This was so good, you didn't have to wait for everyone to get off the cruise. We just meet our guide and he drove us to where the Bikes are. They are easy to drive. Guides have good English and lovely guys. There is NO why you will miss getting back on time to the ship. best thing we did on our trip

Totally a lot of fun.the tour operators picked us up at the ship and delivered us back in plenty of time.the banana plantation and countryside were beautiful. If you want to get an idea of island living without commercializations this is perfect. Nature at its finest along with fun!

The guides were wonderful....Funny and knowledgeable. They made sure we had all the safety equipment, and had the time to practice operating the ATV's before heading out to explore the island. They would pick fruit off of trees and allow us to taste them. The ATV's were in good working order. The pickup at the dock was seamless. It turned out to be a private tour since there was only our party of 4 on the tour. The only short coming was that we expected that each of us would have an ATV to operate since we paid for a party of 4 adults. Turns out 2 of us had to ride as passengers.

We LOVED the tour. Our guide was excellent and the path he took us on was a great one to see parts of the island we would not have had any other way of seeing. Our only complaint is that we were not told exactly where to meet him at the first of the tour. We were only told that we would be picked up at the boat terminal. When we got off the boat we spent 15 minutes walking up and down the pier and were about to give up since we could not use our cell phones to reach anyone. My sister finally went inside of the information building to see if they could give us any advice on what we should do and we just happened to notice our guide standing there holding a sign for us. It would have been helpful (and saved us 15 minutes of wandering around wondering if we had been forgotten - or worse scammed) if we had been instructed to "meet your guide INSIDE THE INFORMATION CENTER BY THE CRUISE TERMINAL". Other than that - everything was wonderful!


1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2015

I would rate this a 0 if it would allow me to because the tour guide never showed up and never contacted us. When security called him after waiting 35 minutes for him he said, I don't do bookings on Thursdays and he didn't have any ATVs. Being on our honeymoon we were stuck without a tour stressed and hurrying to find something else to do. I would not recommend booking this tour unless you want to chance being stuck without a tour in St. Lucia one of the most beautiful islands.
