Miami Vice ~ St Lucia Style
Step aside Don Johnson ’cause you simply aint got nothing on St Lucia dude!
So I went out the other day on this slick Cigarette style speedboat well equipped with triple 275hp Yamaha Salt Water Series outboard motors and the roar of engines was just stupendous.
The boat was called “No Links” and Jn Louis was an absolutely spectacular host who fit right into the island scene with his lively personality and dreadlocks to boot!
No Links sets off from Pointe Seraphine on a cruise ship day and when asked why the name No Links Jn Louis explained to me that while some businesses had all sorts of contacts which guaranteed that they would get business No Links simply had no links and as a result what got them business was them being on top of their game and delivering 250% of fun.
Then Jn Louis very conspiratorially leaned over and whispered in my ear that the No Links famous rum punch flowed like water from a never ending river all day long and this more than anything else was probably most responsible for peoples very happy state by the end of a No Links Day.
Enjoy The Best Of Soufriere
The trip set off for Soufriere round about 10:00 AM passing by sleepy looking little villages right down at the water’s edge. In Soufriere we visited the Drive in Volcano and got to bath in the volcano mud baths, rumoured to take 20 years off your life.
Then from there it was off to a waterfall before heading back to the boat and setting off for the Anse Chastanet beach for lunch and a swim. The water at Anse Chastanet is crystal clear making for some really enjoyable snorkelling.
After spending about 90 minutes at this beach we jumped back on the boat and headed for Port Castries. With music blaring and rum punch flowing this was a day straight out of a fairy tale and everyone on the trip seemed to think so too…
