We designed this experience to appeal to all family members above 8 years, weaving in a bit of snorkeling, fishing, and - of course - eating.

You will be taken by boat to a private cove where you will be taught everything you need to know about snorkelling. You will meet a local fisherman who, while spinning tales based on local legend, will introduce you to the traditions of Saint Lucian fishing. He will guide you throughout his favourite fishing spots and show you how to reel in the best catch, which will be served later in the afternoon on a secluded beach in traditional Saint Lucian style. Back in your room a gift basket with jerk spices and recipes awaits.
