We will kick off this adventure by providing each guest with their own monogrammed snorkel glasses, perfect for exploring the coral reefs and colourful fish. You will be taken by boat to a private cove where you will be taught everything you need to know about snorkeling. You will meet a local fisherman who, while spinning tales based on local legend, will introduce you to the traditions of Saint Lucian fishing.

Back in your room a gift basket with jerk spices and recipes awaits.
