ADVENTURES AT SEA
WHALE AND DOLPHIN WATCHING
This should be a must on everyone’s adventure plan and what better place than the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. Here there are many resident pods as well as migratory ones, so you stand a pretty good chance of a sighting on nearly every trip. The species most commonly sighted are pilot whales, sperm whales, humpbacks and false Orcas. The humpbacks and sperm whales are often spotted with calves, who spend their time playing and frolicking in our coastal waters. The adults love the warm sunny seas and they just relax, swim, play, court and mate, like any regular tourist!
FISHING CHARTERS-CAPTAIN MIKE’S
Now when it comes to experience, Bruce Hackshaw of Capt Mike’s, is the man and he hates to return without a catch! The Hackshaw boys, Bruce and his brother Andrew have been fishing since they were young boys so they know Saint Lucia’s fishing grounds very well. The Trophies are there to prove it – Captain Mike’s currently holds the record for landing a 940lb Blue Marlin!
The waters around St Lucia are filled with a variety of large game fish & schools of fish, including the illusive Blue Marlin, White Marlin, magnificent Sail Fish, awe inspiring Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Dorado (also called Mahi Mahi, or Dolfin locally), there are also King Fish and Mackerel available for your catching pleasure.
Endless Summer Cruises feature Catamaran excursions that are perfect for a family day out. These combine a sea trip with a visit to the volcano, botanical gardens, and stops at coves for snorkeling and swimming. The tours include lunch and refreshments throughout the day. It’s a great way to see the island.
