Full Day Catamaran Sail to Soufriere & the Pitons

Depart aboard a Catamaran from the Rodney Bay Marina sailing along the west coast of the island, past the fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries, the many coves and inlets along the way before arriving at the town of Soufriere, home of the majestic Pitons, a UN World Heritage site, which are also known as the Garden of St. Lucia. The towering twin peaks, Gros and Petit Pitons can be seen at every angle of Soufriere as you wind your way aboard minivans through the bustling town to the Diamond Botanical Gardens. This amazingly beautiful garden is replete with Tropical Flowers along a pathway that takes you onto the cascading Diamond Waterfalls. This waterfall is approximately 60ft high and is primarily a mixture of rainwater and volcanism fed by the Sulphur Springs. It is laced with minerals, sulphur, copper sulphate, magnesium, iron, manganese, and calcium, all contributing to the kaleidoscope of colors that adjourn the rock face behind the falls and continues to change colour depending on the mineral content at any given point but is always spectacular. Onwards to the Sulphur Springs in the Drive-in Volcano, a geothermal wonder where you are welcomed by an amazing series of steaming vents, varied hues of the mineral rocks, and the smell of sulphur. The remarkable Tour Guides will walk with you as they impart information about this natural phenomenon. Return to the Catamaran for lunch onboard, sail up along the coast, and stop for swimming and snorkeling off the boat before returning to dock.

Highlights

Round-trip transportation by boat | Drinks aboard the boat | Entrance to the sites and attractions in Soufriere.

Requirements

Swim Wear Required.

The Piton Hike

A strenuous but exhilarating hike to the summit of Gros Piton, one of the most dominant landmarks of St. Lucia! Drive down along the west coast of the island, along the edge of the lush green rainforest, through two fishing villages to the beautiful town of Soufriere, and then to the base of Gros Piton where you begin the climb. Ascend the winding and rugged path which takes you along rocky pathways with beautiful views of the expansive Caribbean Sea and neighboring Petit Piton. Each turn reveals panoramic vistas which are amazingly beautiful. There are rest points along the way for those who do not wish to climb to the summit and wish to return to base. The view at the summit varies with the cloud cover but one can normally see the island’s wide expanse of tropical rainforest, the Tet Paul attraction, the island of St.Vincent to the south, Martinique to the north, and perhaps Dominica further north. The views from the top defies description and the sense of having conquered the climb is indescribable. Return downhill along the same pathway.

NOTE: This is a strenuous hike suitable for the physically fit. It is not for those who suffer from heart, back or neck problems, have vertigo, or asthma, or  pregnant.

Highlights

Return Transfer to the base of the Piton | Entrance fee to attraction | Invigorating Climb to the summit | Services of a knowledgeable tour guide and lunch.

Requirements

Comfortable walking shoes are a must. Take along some drinking water. The first half of the trail is moderate while the second half involves a steep ascent to the summit.
