Best excursion ever! We booked this on the internet through Mystic Man Tours.
We chartered a catamaran for the eleven in our party. We snorkled, toured around the various areas of St. Lucia and had some time at the beach. A delicious lunch was provided. The crew was absolutely fantastic! I highly recommend this company to anyone who's looking for a great time! It turned out to be less expensive to do this than to do a similar excursion through the ship since we had eleven people. An unexpected bonus was seeing dolphins and whales as we sailed! A definite highlight of our entire cruise experience.
We took a cab to Jolly Harbour Beach, our favorite beach in the Caribbean. The water is absolutely beautiful! Lots of beach amenities and friendly people, although like on most of the beaches on this island, people will come by again and again trying to sell you jewelry or braid your hair. But if you are polite and tell them you are not interested, they will not pester you.
A day of shopping and relaxing on the beach in Philipsburg. This is a great port for shopping, always an expensive day for me! Lots to do within walking distance of the water taxi and the beach is beautiful.
As this was our childrens' first trip to St. Thomas, we wanted to show them Megan's Bay. Our delightful taxi driver, named the Godfather, threw in a little bit of island history and sightseeing as he drove us to the beach and back. Beautiful water, lots of amenities. A peaceful, relaxing, fun day.
