The whale watching trip was scheduled for 4 hours. We saw huge numbers of dolphins, pilot whales, minke whales, and false killer whales shortly after leaving the harbor, probably in less than 2 hours. That part of the trip was very exciting. However, the remaining time was spent trying to find sperm whales, with no success. We traveled north to The Pitons and then back south along the coast, bringing the trip to 4 hours. We think most of the passengers would have been happy to cut the trip short after we saw so many whales, but the tour operators probably did not want anyone to think they were not offering everything that had been promised.

Sunset cruise. James from Jus Sail organised a taxi to pick us up from the ship, take us to Pigeon Island, then to the boat in Rodney Bay Marina, then back to the ship. Pigeon Island pretty but make sure you go to the beach in the state park and not just outside. Entrance $7 each and beach chairs $3. Taxi from the ship to Pigeon Island $40. The sunset cruise was very enjoyable with a stunning sunset. Highly recommended. Next time we'd try to do a full day's cruise instead. Read Less

Whale watching was a nice afternoon boat ride. Saw plenty of dolphins, but no whales. Asked when they last saw whales and the answer was, "This morning." But the tour included rum punch.

On our visit to St Lucia, we took part in a whale and dolphin watch carried out by Captain Mike's. We arrived at the little boat, it WAS a little boat - when compared with the P&O Britannia. There were approximately 20 passengers on board with three 4 crew members. The boat started and we introduced ourselves to each other, the crew supplied drinks to the passengers - WATER, SPRITE, COCA-COLA and RUM PUNCH. Drinks flowed easily, especially the Rum Punch. The captain advised that they would try and see sperm whales and dolphins, but it was possible that we would not see any - as they were in nature, and decided what they wanted to do themselves. We travelled for one hour before we saw out first sperm whale, the captain stopped the boat and advised where to look - WOW!!!!! We saw this magnificent beast and saw it dive down. When the sperm whale was safely away the captain started again. More drinks followed. The crew member talked with us, supplied even more drinks. Music started to by played, and on the lower deck I could see some passengers singing and dancing. 30 minutes later we came across a pod of dolphins, a family group of over ten individuals. They swam next to the boat,and two jumped out and splashed back into the water. On the trip back to the harbour the crew told us about two of the wrecks which surround the island, the on-shore locations and a little about themselves. More Rum Punch followed. We had a fantastic time on this tour, the crew were fantastic, the entertainment onboard was amazing. Witnessing the sperm whales and dolphins was awe-inspiring. If you have a chance to go to St Lucia, go and take a whale and dolphin watch tour with Captain Mike's. You will love it. Read Less
