This wonderful exploration of St. Lucia's beautiful underwater world begins with a cruise along the lush and impressive north-western coastline to Marine Park, where your trained snorkeling guide will introduce you to the island's diverse marine life. Located just off-shore of the Le Sport Hotel, this popular snorkeling area boasts a labyrinth of shallow reefs and coral heads that act as the habitat for schools of French Grunts, Goat Fish, Jacks and Snappers. Other species of fish that can be viewed here include Parrot, Trumpet, Peacock Flounders and Rock Fish.
In addition to an abundance of colorful tropical fish, you may encounter a variety of eels, such as black, moray, golden spotted and sharp nose. Tucked away in the rocks and crevices, sea urchins, star fish, sand divers, flying gurnard and an occasional octopus and lobster can be found as well. Some lucky snorkelers have even been fortunate enough to find turtles and Southern Sting Rays in the sandy bottom. If you should tire, there is always easy access to either your boat or the beach area for those wishing to take a rest.
After what is sure to be an enjoyable and exciting time spent discovering all these spectacular waters have to offer, you'll re-board your boat for the return to the port. As you make your way back, refreshments will be served on board.
