St. Lucia Cruise Port Tours

118 Reviews
The pristine beaches, lush rain forests, and volcanic topography of St. Lucia make it one of the Caribbean’s most popular islands. It’s also a top destination for cruise passengers, welcoming over 300 cruise ships each year. 

The Basics
St. Lucia’s small size makes it easy to explore on a half- or full-day shore excursion, either by boat or minivan. Popular destinations include Soufrière, Pigeon Island, and Rodney Bay, and many tours include a photo stop at the twin volcanic spires of the Pitons, a visit to a banana plantation, or a mud bath at the Sulphur Springs. 

Adventurous visitors might consider a Segway or ATV tour, ziplining or riding an aerial tram through the rain forest, hiking the Tet Paul Nature Trail, or chartering a private speedboat to explore the island’s beaches.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Shore excursions typically include port pickup and drop-off. 
  • Be aware that island buses will wait until they are full before departing, so this may not be the best mode of transportation if you’re short on time.
  • Be sure to pack your swimsuit, towel, and sun protection—most tours offer a chance for swimming or snorkeling.

How to Get to Castries from the Port of St. Lucia 
Most cruise ships dock in Castries on the island’s northwest coast, either at La Place Carenage, right in the center of town, or at Pointe Seraphine, just across the harbor. From Pointe Seraphine, it’s about a 20-minute walk or a short water-taxi ride into town. Taxis and car rentals are also available at both cruise terminals.

Port Information
The official language of St. Lucia is English, but many locals also speak Patois. In addition to the Eastern Caribbean dollar—the island’s official currency—most businesses accept American dollars and credit cards.
