Private Customized St. Lucia Boat Tours

Welcome to Hackshaw Boat Charters! Let us show you the real St. Lucia on one of our private boat tours. We are not your average tour operator. St. Lucia is home for us, and our family began operating personally tailored boat tours over 68 years ago! For fun on the water with a customized private tour, we've got you covered.

Come snorkeling with us to see bright tropical fish, healthy coral reefs, and maybe even a seahorse, spotted eel, or octopus. If tournament sports fishing is your thing, our knowledgeable local guides know all the secret spots to go. If your family is looking for a day of whale and dolphin watching, then let us take you there. Or a luxury catamaran cruise on the west coast of St. Lucia with amazing views. We'll show you some of the island's most popular beaches, plus a few secluded hidden gems.

With a full-day on the island, you'll have all the time you need to relax at Marigot Bay, the "must see" in the area. You'll also have the option to visit other popular sites on the island such as the Botanical Gardens, Sulphur Springs, Diamond Water Falls, and the therapeutic sulfur baths. Relax, and leave the details to us. Onboard you will be served complimentary coffee, tea, soft drinks, mineral water, local fruit, and light snacks.

Bring friends, family, or whoever; the choice is yours! As we leave Port Castries, you are bound to marvel at the beauty of our western coastline, to visit history-rich and fascinating Soufriere, passing the charming fishing villages of Anse La Raye and Canaries, with their distinctive Caribbean flavor.

Have your cameras ready for the view of a lifetime, our World Heritage Site: the majestic Pitons. Rising proudly from the sapphire blue waters, soaring over two thousand feet, apparently to the heavens, our Pitons are a can’t-miss experience in St. Lucia. The sight takes your breath away! There is also the option to visit other popular sites on the island, such as the Botanical Gardens, Sulphur Springs, Diamond Water Falls, and the therapeutic sulfur baths.

We have an open bar, local fruit, and light snacks throughout the trip and have lunch options from excellent beach restaurants to a sumptuous lunch served on board at an extra charge.

Several breathtaking beaches await you, with fantastic areas for snorkeling or just swimming. You create your adventure with your private and customizable St. Lucia boat charter.

No trip along the coastline could be complete without visiting the most spectacular bay in the Caribbean, Marigot Bay, where the British hid from the French fleet by tying coconut palms to their masts, letting the French sail by, then emerging and attacking from the rear, winning one of the many battles between the French and English, for possession of the “Helen of the West,” our St. Lucia. Marigot boasts many waterfront restaurants where you can enjoy refreshing Caribbean concoctions near the end of your trip of a lifetime!

On our private boat trips in St. Lucia, the boats come with complimentary drinks, light snacks, and snorkeling equipment.

A trip out with our crew will be the highlight of your vacation!

Words from our customers

Location

St. Lucia Is Paradise For Outdoor Activities

This eastern Caribbean island is home to volcanic beaches, quaint fishing villages, coral reefs, and two iconic volcanic mountains called the Pitons. The island's capital city, Castries, is an inviting cruise port. Exciting wildlife, historic sites, and colorful marine life attract cruise passengers on packaged shore excursions.

Dining on St Lucia is a Caribbean feast for food lovers. The national dish, saltfish, is made from salt-cured cod cooked with onions and peppers. It's generally served with unripened bananas, often called green figs. Fresh seafood is popular, including local spiny lobster, conch, crab, and the local fish of the day. Marigot boasts several fantastic waterfront restaurants where diners can enjoy a lovely meal with an incredible sunset view.
