St. Lucia Cruise Port

Castries, St. Lucia

The Basics

St. Lucia’s small size makes it easy to explore on a half- or full-day shore excursion, either by boat or minivan. Popular destinations include Soufrière, Pigeon Island, and Rodney Bay, and many tours include a photo stop at the twin volcanic spires of the Pitons, a visit to a banana plantation, or a mud bath at the Sulphur Springs.

Adventurous visitors might consider a Segway or ATV tour, ziplining or riding an aerial tram through the rain forest, hiking the Tet Paul Nature Trail, or chartering a private speedboat to explore the island’s beaches.

Most cruise ships dock in Castries on the island’s northwest coast, either at La Place Carenage, right in the center of town, or at Pointe Seraphine, just across the harbor. From Pointe Seraphine, it’s about a 20-minute walk or a short water-taxi ride into town. Taxis and car rentals are also available at both cruise terminals.
