The most knowledgeable guide of all the wildlife excursions/safaris that we have ever been on. He gave us photos and memories that we will cherish forever. The sights of that afternoon will stay with us always.

We went on the 2 hours cruise and saw dozens of hippos and several crocks. the cruise is relaxing and you get plenty of opportunities to take photos and get explanations from the crew... We had a tour with a company called Advantage

It was great experience in St Lucia! We definitely repeat it! Boat cruise with loads of information about hippos, crocks, and sharks, and birds. Take a big boat, with rooftop seats. And better afternoon ride, as it's not so hot, and animals are out.

We saw a lot of hippos, crocodiles and beautiful birds. The cruise was very scenic and comfortable. Try to book the last cruise of the day - as in hot weather the cruise can get uncomfortable and there will be less hippos to see.
