West Coast Island Delight

Explore the lush tropical beauty and stunning natural attractions of St. Lucia's scenic west coast on this land tour along the tranquil and picturesque Caribbean Sea side of the island.

This land tour includes a brief stop at the Derek Walcott Square in Castries where you will see the ancient "Massav" tree (said to be between 400-600 years old) as well as the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.  At the Morne Fortune Overlook absorb the spectacular views of the town, the north side of the island, Vigie, the cruise ships and Castries Harbor.  Traveling along the West Coast Road, visit the largest banana plantation in St. Lucia and observe the quaint and colourful fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries.  In Soufriere, be awestruck by the majestic twin peaks of the Pitons dramatically rising some 2600 feet above the sea!  At Sulphur Springs choose a guided tour of the Caribbean's only drive-in volcano or rejuvenate yourself in a hot, sulphur mud bath.  After an exhilarating experience enjoy a refreshing dip under the 50' Toraille Waterfall followed by a short speedboat ride to picturesque Jalousie/Sugar Beach.  Jalousie/Sugar Beach is St. Lucia's most famous beach noted for its idyllic location between the Gros and Petit Pitons.

West Coast Island Delight Customer Testimonials

From the time we met up with Spencer until the time we were brought back to the ship our experience could not have been better. Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We started in a car with Neptune, who was very informative, took us around the island from banana plantation, to volcanoes, to waterfall and beautiful scenery. We ended at a wonderful beach, with the most delicious lunch, and of course the speed boat ride back to the ship. I want to thank the Spencer Ambrose group for an unforgettable day.

...We were immediately greeted when we got off of the boat by Spencer and our guide Small.  We initially travelled in a nice vehicle all over the island of St Lucia. We had the opportunity to stop at a banana plantation and sample local goodies and then we went on to the Volcano. After the volcano we went to visit the 50ft waterfall where we had the opportunity to stand under it and wade in the pool. All the while we were traveling, our guide was very engaging, knowledgeable and entertaining. We made some stops to take photos and then we were off to Jalouise Beach. Okay, don't waste your time snorkeling anywhere else. This beach was fantastic. We reached the beach by a small speed boat and that was also a wonderful ride. We had a lunch on the beach that was provided for us and it was a sampling of local favorites which included BBQ chicken and some assorted sides. ...We have done many excursions and adventures on the islands when we cruise and this one was HANDS DOWN the best we have ever done. If you are fortunate enough to be in St. Lucia, DO NOT MISS SPENCER AMBROSE TOURS!

This is one of the best tours we've ever done in all of our travels. Very well planned, a lot of neat stops along the way, very knowledgeable staff, great snorkeling, and delicious authentic Caribbean food. Really one of the best valued tours we've done. Would highly recommend.

Small hosted our group of 7 and we really enjoyed him and all he shared with us about the island. The mud baths were fun and a real experience and we loved rinsing off in the waterfall. The bar b q was wonderful. Snorkeling at Sugar Beach was marvelous. The water was beautiful and I saw all sorts of colorful fish. Small took us back to our ship (Windstar) which was quite a distance away from the main port and was such a gracious host. If you have the chance to take a tour with Spencer & his guys, you won’t regret it. I’m so glad we did!
