How COVID_19 Gave Rise To These Private St Lucia Excursions

While the St Lucia Photo Tour was originally only about photo tours as the name implies, COVID-19 came along and totally disrupted that apple cart.

Not one to let a good crisis go to waste, we quickly pivoted and switched to offering Private Photo Tours exclusively.  This was out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our clients.  We figured that by not mixing persons from different households we were pro-actively protecting our clients to the maximum.

A honeymooning couple loved this idea of private island experiences so much that they asked if we would create some non-photography Private St Lucia Excursions for them as they had no interest in photography, but simply loved our style.  And so was born these very personalized Private St Lucia Tours.

Oh, and if you’ve ever been reluctant to take pictures of locals abroad Kirk will introduce you to a secret hack that guarantees you will get the most amazingly engaging photos of locals abroad without offending anyone.  You will be amazed at how well this technique works and best of all – you’ll have the pictures to prove it!

St Lucia Tours – The Very Best of St Lucia

St Lucia is an amazingly exotic Caribbean island that is ideal for soft adventure.  The island sits directly in the path of the North East Trade Winds which blow off West Africa and straight across the Atlantic Ocean .  These winds bring the rains which keep us a vibrant shade of green for much of the year.  Now the beautiful thing about the rains is that they tend to fall early in the mornings and sometimes in the early afternoon too.  In fact it is not unusual for the rains to be coming down in buckets per minute at 5:00 AM and by 7:30 AM or so there’s beautiful blue sky and brilliant sunshine, as if it never rained!  Such is the nature of St Lucia Weather.

Some Popular St Lucia Tours

Here are some popular St Lucia Tours:

  • Visiting the Drive-In Volcano and Mud Baths in Soufriere
  • Ziplining – This is always plenty fun!
  • Hiking Tet Paul – This is a 45 minute not too strenuous hike that affords you stunning views of both the Gros Piton and the Petit Piton mountains.
  • Hiking Gros Piton – This hike is quite strenuous and because you have to scramble over some big boulders in certain areas the hike is not for the faint of heart. But even if you don’t make it to the top it can still be a memorable experience.
  • The Booze Cruise – What fun is an island vacation without getting out on the ocean.  There are plenty boats doing both the day sail booze cruise and the ever popular sunset cruise.

While the tours above are some of the long established and popular ones, in recent years there have been complaints that many St Lucia tours are dated and may even have lost some of their shine.  In fact, this was the sentiment expressed by some senior tourism officials when they visited St Lucia a few years ago trying to get the island to update its visitor experiences.

Bearing this in mind, together with feedback from clients, we decided to heed the words of those tourism executives and create something fresh and new… well, actually – a few things fresh and new!

  • From Expedited VIP Airport Clearances that allow you to skip the customs and immigration lines, to Pink Champagne and Fragranced Cold Towels once we meet up on the outside – our Private St Lucia Excursions are a truly unique series of experiences that must be experienced to be appreciated.
  • The Island Explorer is our popular land-based St Lucia Tour and…
  • The Private Power Catamaran with Charcuterie Board and Pink Champagne is a best seller water-based St Lucia Excursion.
  • Then for the evening there’s our very own Private Sunset Cruise with optional dinner.

What Makes St Lucia So Unique

While St Lucia is arguably one of the prettiest of all the Caribbean islands, pretty is merely skin deep while true beauty comes from within.  And St Lucia has a beauty that emanates from the depths of her soul.

You see, Saint Lucia was fought for many times and in the process changed hands a total of 14 times to be 7 times English and 7 times French.  And in the midst of all of this both her rich Amerindian and her rich African influences helped fashion us into the unique place and people we are today.  However, because both the Amerindian and the African facets of our history and culture were oral rather than written they are more elusive, but still very much present.

As a National Geographic Certified Educator I have been digging deep into the reservoirs of our history and culture with a view to bringing to life these little known aspects of our history and culture.  I have made this a central part of all our Private St Lucia excursions and this is the secret sauce that brings our St Lucia excursions to life in a way that is unlike all others.

So I invite you to check them out by clicking on the images below.  Then hit me up on chat, or by clicking the “Book a Consultation” button on any of our webpages, and let’s get you experiencing the very best Private St Lucia Excursions.

One Love, Kirk
