We booked an island tour on one of Pappas boats. The crew made sure we had great time. I highly recommend!

Visited St Lucia with wife and friends. I'm not a morning person and wanted to dive in the afternoon. Could not find a dive operation that would go out in the afternoon. Spoke to some folks in the resort and they recommended to try Dolphin Dive. Spoke to Papa and arranged an afternoon dive. Best service that we have had... More

We were on a 1 week cruise going to the islands of the Caribbean. I wanted to try and book a boat trip to the Pitons while in St Lucia.

Just came back from a boat trip on Pappas boat. They promised a tour of some fishing villages, snorkeling, volcano mud bath, natural hot tubs and a traditional island lunch. They delivered that and more. "Skittles" was our guide with “Pappa” driving the boat. They made sure we had drinks everywhere we went, described the history of the sites and... More

This was exactly what we were looking for! There were 10 people on the tour boat plus Elijah and John. John drove while Elijah gave an informative tour. We were offered a local meal for $15.00 but we were not hungry so I cannot comment on the food. Once we stopped to snorkel, Elijah swam with my husband and son... More

The beach that we took a powerboat ride to was lovely. The snorkeling was ok. However the disorganization of the tour made it less than ideal. We were told to meet at a certain time, but the boat didn't leave for about an hour. There was a long line of people waiting for the water taxi to town (actually easily... More

We booked this instead of a ship excursion. I felt like we were hanging around waiting forever to load up boats and head out. It felt somewhat disorganized for a group that regularly runs these tours. They request you meet them about 45 minutes before you actually leave on the boat. The boat ride over to Anse Chastanet was nice... More
