- Fodor's Choice
A day sail or sea cruise from Rodney Bay or Vigie Cove to Soufrière and the Pitons is a wonderful way to see St. Lucia and a great way to get to the island's distinctive natural sites. Prices for a full-day sailing excursion to Soufrière run about $100 per person and include a land tour to the Diamond Botanical Gardens, lunch, a stop for swimming and snorkeling, and a visit to pretty Marigot Bay. Two-hour sunset cruises along the northwest coast cost $45 to $60 per person.
Endless Summer. On Endless Summer, a 56-foot "party" catamaran, you can take a day trip along the coast to Soufrière—hotel transfers, tour, entrance fees, lunch, and drinks included—for $105 per person. A half-day swimming and snorkeling trip is also available. For romantics, there's a weekly sunset cruise, with dinner and entertainment.
