After being canceled on at the last minute from another tour company I was scrambling to find a tour for the next morning. Luckily I was able to find Dannyboy. He called me the next morning because my booking was last minute and someone else was already booked. But he was still able to accommodate me and I was extremely grateful. It was my last day in Saint Lucia and I needed to see these sites. The tour was great. I feel like I learned so much. I got to do all the things I needed to do and then someone. Dannyboy was full of energy and information. It was a great day.

Just book it!!! Dannyboy was absolutely amazing. The knowledge and experience of the local to show you around the wonderful island to second to none. He’s an absolute mine of information, friendly, his driving felt very safe and secure given certain windy roads. 10/10 definitely recommend.

Terrific trip with a great team. Great value and very enjoyable experience. Would recommend this snorkeling and diving trip for anyone looking for a good half day excursion. Even the lunch was memorable. This was a five star trip on every level.
