St Lucia / Island Tours

By James Henderson

There are many tours of St Lucia, which enable you to take in a number of ‘sights’ at once. Many are by boat, so you cruise down the wonderfully beautiful leeward coast of the island, see day sails. But of course there are vehicle borne tours aswell that will give you a greater exposure to local St Lucian life as you stop off along the way for a juice or a beer.

A number of excellent sites are members of an association called the Heritage Tourism Association of St Lucia (HERITAS) and tours can be booked through St Lucia Heritage Tours at Point Seraphine or La Place Carenage. More details about these sights are listed under our Hiking and Culture & Heritage sections.

Sunlink Tours - A wide variety of island tours is also available through Sunlink Tours including day and half day round the island excursions, soft adventure walks in the rainforest, walks and horse-rides, also shopping tours.

Helicopter Tours 

It is also possible to make a tour of the island by helicopter. You cruise over the extraordinary green of the forest and along coastline and then circle Pitons high above Soufrière. Heading straight for the Pitons at over 1000 feet is an exciting feeling.

St Lucia Helicopters - They have a number of tours that circle the island. Contact St Lucia Helicopters.
