As we near the coastal village of Soufriere, you will get your first glimpse of St. Lucia’s most famous landmark--the breathtaking and majestic Piton Mountains!   


These unique and tropical cone-shaped volcanic peaks rise some 2600 feet above the sea and are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  

Tour by Land

Your land adventure begins in Soufriere!

On shore you will be greeted by your Spencer Ambrose Tours guide who will escort you to an air-conditioned vehicle.  Sit back, relax and enjoy a complimentary beverage as we make our way to Sulphur Springs Park. You'll know you have arrived when you pick up the unmistakable odour of sulfur!  


Known as the Caribbean's only drive-in volcano, Sulphur Springs is the hottest and most active geothermal area in the Lesser Antilles.  


At Sulphur Springs you can either take a tour with a park guide to see bubbling pools of mud and clouds of sulphur-laden steam rising from a dormant volcano or  rejuvenate yourself in a therapeutic hot, sulphur mud bath. The black water of this bathing pool is filled with volcanic minerals which is reputed to have therapeutic, healing qualities for your skin.  

Changing rooms and showers are available at the mud baths.


**Select your choice of either the volcano tour
or the mud baths on the booking form.

A short drive will take you to the tranquility of Toraille Waterfall & Gardens. Set amidst a charming and serene, tropical garden setting, Toraille Waterfall is recognized as one of St. Lucia’s nature heritage sites.  

Stroll a short distance through exotic gardens to discover a breathtaking 50-foot natural waterfall cascading over the mountainside into a small pool below.

Take a refreshing dip in the pool nestled beneath the falls and let the cool water tumble down over your shoulders.

Back at the dock, climb aboard one of Spencer's speedboats for a scenic 6-minute ride around the base of the Petit Piton to beautiful Jalousie Beach (French word for jealousy).

 


**Water/beach landings are a possibility;
appropriate footwear is recommended**

Unwind on the Beach

Visited by celebrities and famous for its idyllic location between the Pitons, your St. Lucian adventure continues on the picturesque shores of Jalousie Beach (also known as Sugar Beach).  Jalousie/Sugar Beach is the most scenic beach on the island!

All too soon, your beach time in this tropical paradise will come to an end--but the adventure is not over yet!  

 

For the return journey to Castries you will once again board one of Spencer's speedboats or a chartered water taxi to experience an exhilarating, sightseeing adventure by sea!

Sightsee by Sea

During your thrilling speedboat ride along St. Lucia's breathtaking coastline, explore stunning sights visible only on the water and be astounded by the exquisite views and outstanding photo opportunities that abound.


As we cruise around the base of the Petit Piton, we will make a sightseeing stop at the Bat Cave.


This unique four-storey high cleft in the coastal rock is home to thousands of "Fisherman Bats".

As we glide across the beautiful aquamarine waters of the Caribbean Sea, you will notice how picturesque St. Lucia's coastline truly is. You will be in awe by the dramatic drop of high rocky cliffs, lush secluded coves, quaint fishing villages and inviting black sand volcanic beaches.
 

By Anse Chastanet, look for the "fish on the rock," an unusual, natural marking on the rock face.

Nestled between strands of gorgeous palm trees and surrounded by steep emerald-coloured hills lined with celebrity homes lies picturesque Marigot Bay.

 

Considered one of the most beautiful bays in the Caribbean, this idyllic cove is a safe harbor during hurricanes and was the location of the 1966 movie Dr. Doolittle.

Before arriving in Castries, marvel at the Natural Bridge.  Featured in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean, this unique rock formation is also known as the "tunnel of love" or the "lady's slipper."
