After repeatedly asking for a good adventure snorkeling tour and each time being told this was the tour we would want, we booked. It was Not what we wanted, the only thing that kept us from asking for our money back was the staff with joe knows. Chocolate thunder & the gang were hilarious. However the tour it self sucked!
If you are an active person looking for adventure this is not the tour for you!
This is a tour that’s great for old people, or people that are not active or sporty.
You will be told about going to the mud baths at the volcano you can walk around... we did not get to walk around to see any of the volcano. The mud baths are not baths they bring 2 buckets of mud down to where they have you herded so close together in a rocky shallow sulfur pool of water you can’t move. You get so little time you are rushed to slop hand fulls of mud from these buckets on to your body have your picture taken then herded up & out to be barraged by people trying sell you there wears. The water fall is the same you wait longer in line then you ever get in the water. Again it’s step in the water get under the fall & have your picture taken, then get out right away... Oh I forgot to mention all the herding & rushing so these pictures can be taken is so that you can purchase your pictures at your resort.
The snorkeling that we were so desperately trying to do was the best part of the tour and we got about 30-40 minutes at max... at this point they were rushing us to get finished so everyone could start drinking; so much that our boat was fired up & untied getting ready to leave as we scrambled to get our selves back to our crew.
It just felt like our whole day was rushed so the staff could start the party & get drinking on the boat.
Again the staff was great but they were in it for the party & we wanted an adventure snorkeling tour.
We are a couple in our 30’s on our honey moon. We travel every year and have hiked volcanos & mountains to see waterfalls and swim in mud & mineral baths. Everyone touted so much about this tour even after we told them what we wanted and we were left very disappointed. It was not worth the money, sorry Joe but you didn’t know!

My wife and I signed up for the Joe Knows speedboat tour while staying at Sandals LaTock. We have an awesome Caribbean lunch, lava mud bath, waterfall visit, and the highlight was snorkeling. The Joe Knows tour crew were incredible. Chocolate Thunder, Cletus, and Capt. Junior were awesome hosts. You must request this crew if you like to laugh, dance, drink, and have fun. Chocolate Thunder has the wisdom of Solomon. You will not be disappointed

What a great way to spend a day under the St Lucian sun! The boys from Joe Knows are super fun but also professional and always having your safety in mind. We had an absolutely fantastic day! Highly recommend this speed boat trip!

We only had one day in St. Lucia as we were cruising RCCL. We had done the same cruise the previous year and hired a tour guide by land and it was ok. This time we decided to tour St. Lucia by water with Joe Knows and it made all the difference! J.R. was our guide and Ozzy was our Captain and together they made the most incredible team! We knew we were in for a fun day right away! J.R. was super fun and high energy and Ozzy handled his boat like a pro, sometimes giving us a fast thrill ride and other times keeping it chill so we could enjoy a beverage and soak up the sun. We toured the island by water, visited the mud baths and a waterfall (had to transfer to a van for that), had an amazing Caribbean lunch buffet at a restaurant by the water, snorkeled, and spent more time exploring the island by boat. All in all, I could not have imagined a more perfect way to spend our only day in St. Lucia.

We stayed at Sandals la Toc and booked this excursion through Sandals with 4 friends.
I can honestly say a great time was had by all we did the snorkelling,mud bath and waterfall brilliant time.
Chocolate Thunder is the man who made this trip great, such an entertainer loves to tell you all about his beautiful island and gives you an insight into the St Lucians way of life,these happy,friendly and gorgeous people cannot do enough for you and yet as I understand it live on such a small amount of money.
We ended our excursion dancing on the boat and laughing a great deal all the staff on our trip were very attentive and it was our privilege to spend the day with them.
Thank you I will never forget the great day we had with you!
