There are three St Lucia Estuary Cruises per day and each trip takes about two hours. The most popular being the sun downer cruise. The St Lucia Estuary Cruise is guided by SATOUR qualified guides to ensure you get a deep insight in the Estuary's history, ecosystem and wild-life.

The boats are equipped with shaded and sun decks, ablution facilities and offer ample space for free movement throughout the cruise.
