Anse Chastanet & Jalousie Beach Customer Testimonials

This was an awesome tour. ...The snorkeling was excellent!! son saw an enormous amount of fish of all colors and species plus an eel. ...Loved the boat ride and all the insights along the way from our guides!!

Gary K


...The underwater world was fantastically beautiful here! We were surrounded by the most colorful fish and made beautiful pictures in the water...

...We got to snorkel at Anse Chastanet for almost two hours while other people on the boat went on other excursions. ...On the way to Jalousie Beach, they pulled into a little bay to show us a colony of bats in the split in the cliff. We got lunch of local food. ...There were more fish at Anse Chastanet but more coral at Jalousie Beach so both were interesting. On the return trip, they took a tour of some of the little coves telling us a little bit more about St. Lucia. Definitely recommend this group for tours. All the crew and staff tried to make sure we were enjoying ourselves.

...everything about the experience was excellent. We were taken to 2 dive sites and the snorkelling was amazing. We also taken by high speed boat to two beautiful beaches and on the last beach Sugar Bay we were served a lovely lunch. All the staff from the boat driver, tour guide and cook were friendly, helpful and did their utmost to make sure we had an enjoyable day. I would definitely book another trip with them when we are next in St Lucia.
