Jimmy the skipper and his brother Benny were great fun. We felt very safe and were looked after throughout the whole trip. The boat trip to Soufriere took in some lovely places and the commentary was very informative - a beautiful coastline. We pulled in to the beach and were taken by taxi to visit the sulphur springs/mud bath, then... More

Lyle booked us onto their great trip to see the Pitons, Mud Bath, Waterfall, lunch and snorkelling. The best part was the return journey at full speed with great music, great company and a few beers and rum punches - so much fun. The trip packed in a lot in a short space of time and is just perfect for... More

Skinny Jimmy, Lyle, Benji and Captain Alvin are the best! These guys truly are the "Real Deal." We booked this trip with Lyle (Ly-Lee), on the beach during our first day at Sandals. The guys at the resort tried to scare us into cancelling, but we believed the testimonials from several other couples on the beach. Good call! The tour... More

Simply superb, fun packed, safe, tour of some of the prime tourist places to visit on the island. The boat is very nice and rivals any of the competing companies if you like power and speed. The trip leaves early from Sandals Grande Lucian but it's worth it to get ahead of the crowds at the mid baths and waterfalls.... More
