What can we do with 7 hours in St Lucia?

Recommended Posts

We will dock at Castries' port from 12:30-7:30.

It is not enough time to go with a 6-hour Cosol tour? Are any buses waiting at port to provide a half-day sightseeing tour? 

We would like some historical, sightseeing, shopping or natural activities. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks,

There will be taxis and tour operators at the pier for trips. 

It's enough time to get to Soufriere and back to see the Pitons and volcano, but not much else - you wouldn't have time for beach or such. 

You could opt for Pigeon Island up north, national park with ruins, small beach, great restaurants, hikes, etc..

Or Rodney Bay for Beach and shopping. Not sure what type of shopping you're looking for- St Lucia isn't s shopping destination like St Thomas or St Maarten, we don't have Mike's if jewelry and clothes and linens and electronics and name brands and such  like said places. And little bargain hunting like said places. 

Enjoy.

Thanks Reedprincess.

Great suggestions.

I would do Morne Fortune(1 hour) and Pigeon(4 hours). The traffic back to port from Pigeon at around 6pm would not be too bad , is it right?

Nope, traffic back from PI should be minimal, no problem...

We took a 3 hour excursion through the ship- so there are shorter ones available.

We went to an estate house, and art studio, and out in the country.

We have the same situation in January.  Get in touch with Spencer Ambrose tours - they are working around the ships schedule that day.  Our tour is 1:00 to 6:00.
