Yes the tour was with RCI. There's plenty of seats in the shade on the Catamaran, there's no inside on the Catamaran. Music is playing on the way back from the Pitons, not everyone is drinking. I do recall they served us tea sandwiches, some were tuna fish and some were cheese sandwiches. Everyone had a good time on that tour and I think your sister will enjoy it

Here's a youtube video of the Coastal Cruise to the Pitons, as you can see there's plenty of seating for shade.

Thank you so much for the video! I think we will book this tour.

It certainly looks a lot more comfortable than the island bus tour.

Would love to do a tour of the Pitons, but my question is, are there rest room facilities on the boat tour. Does the bus tour stop for rest room breaks?

There were at least four stops with restroom facilities on the bus tour. It's a Long tour. We arrived back at the port with about 20 minutes to spare.

Spencer Ambrose does a tour where you go to Sugar Beach by the pitons by boat. It was great. I get carsick and I've heard tours by road are really difficult.

We did the Land, Sea & Beach Adventure with Spencer Ambrose a few years ago and want to do the Jalousie Beach Break on our upcoming cruise in Feb. '18. I noticed when you click to book online there is a spot to enter a coupon/promotional code. Do you know where we could find one of these by any chance?

We used Cosol tours last year. While the tour was an all day event, it was well worth it. They kept us fed and hydrated, tons of stops for pictures, and we saw so many sights that it was hands down the best tour we have ever been on. We got to swim between the Pitons, got in a volcanic hot spring, put on some volcanic mud, and washed it off in a waterfall.

But yes, if you get motion sick in a vehicle, this might not be the tour for you. Going out (away) from the ship wasn't too bad as you stop every now and then, but the ride back is just driving for a long time on switchback roads. They stop once on the way back for a quick snack and stretch your legs, but vans are moving pretty well on that part of the drive.

We used Cosol tours too and would recommend them, there were quite a few people on our cruise on the tour, it was a really enjoyable day and they looked after us very well.

Hi all! I'm cruising in December and wondering to choose between Cosol and Spencer Ambrose. On the Cosol tour, is there time allotted to swim at Jalousie Beach, or is it stop, snap a few photos, and head on your way? Husband and I are looking to relax at least a little bit at the beach.

You get about and hour or so at rhe beach on Cosol's tour, maybe a little longer if the other stops go quicker.

Is there a private tour company that offer the Costal Cruise to the Pitons on the catamaran please? Oceania do not offer it as a shore excursion.

Was the speed boat portion rough. He is worried about his back. We went whale watching in Canada he found the speed boat jarring. I on the other hand found it exhilarating. What is the best tour taking the Catamaran and going to the mud pools?

Reed Princess I just wanted to say thanks so much for recommending Seaspray. We chartered the Mango Tango last week, for a group of 8 people, and they were fantastic. Had a really great day.
