Learn to kayak in the Caribbean with a St. Lucia sea kayaking excursion to Pigeon Island. Kayak through crystal clear water, pull up on the beach and relax on the sand, or don snorkeling gear and explore the abundant marine life of St Lucia.
What to Expect
Pigeon Island, a 40-acre islet connected by a causeway to St. Lucia's west coast, is a beautiful nature park which reflects a thousand years of history. There are marked trails with a number of historical sites, like the remains of an 18th-century British fort and Fort Rodney, where the Admiral for which it is named spied on the French ships from its strategic viewpoint. The island also has two secluded beaches.
Clients are transferred to the shop where they are introduced to the kayaking guide and briefed on the safety equipment and technique (20 - 30 minutes). You enter the water from Marigot Bay and kayak on to the open sea interacting with the west coast.
After the sea kayaking tour you return to Marigot Bay for your transfer to Pigeon Island for your Nature Park Tour with Hike (trip to Pigeon Island can be 30 - 45 minutes).
