Most tours include time for water activities such as scuba diving, snorkeling, or sailing, while others incorporate sightseeing by convertible or Segway. Other popular Pigeon Island activities include hiking natural trails through dry tropical forests to the waterfront and visiting the lookout point at the top of Fort Rodney for panoramic views of St. Lucia’s northwest coastline.
