It was great to experience the wonderful the Rainforest. Our daughterdid the zip wire while we did the team. Both are great. The guide was very knowledgeable about the forest. All in all well worth the money.

Had a wonderful time. Originally we signed up for snorkeling, I’m so happy the instructor encouraged us to scuba. They were so patient and kind. Would definitely recommend and return!

Incredible experience with a wonderful and knowledgeable local tour guide. Can’t recommend Dive Fair Helen enough if you’re coming to St. Lucia and looking for great snorkeling.

All the staff were so lovely. Great day out and lovely that it’s a small group.

I had an awesome time. The guides were very helpful and professional.
