The following specialty kayak tours are available on a walk-in basis. The tours use sit-inside Prijon kayaks and begin with an instructional session to learn safety and paddling techniques and, unless you are veteran kayakers, we strongly recommend you do not attempt the Paddle to the Pitons excursion. We also recommend you consider bringing sunscreen, a shirt, hat and sunglasses.
Kayaking the Coast of Soufriere Bay
Our basic and most popular tour option is Kayaking the Coast of Soufriere Bay. Donning our PFD’s, Personal Flotation Devices, our guide will lead you out and around Grand Caille Point and over one of our very popular dive sites, FAIRYLAND. From there, we will continue to paddle along the coast to examine the weathered volcanic cliffs eventually reaching the famed bat cave and Hummingbird Beach at the north end of the Soufriere waterfront. All along the way, you will be treated to great views of the twin peaks of the Pitons - a UNESCO World Heritage site - rising majestically out of the sea. A waterproof camera is a must!
Paddle to the Pitons
Our most demanding and exhilarating kayaking option is the Paddle to the Pitons tour that takes you across Soufriere Bay to Petit Piton to enjoy the spectacular views of the sheer mountain face rising vertically from the sea to a height of nearly one-half mile. After exploring more of the magnificent coast you will land ashore to stretch your legs or perhaps take a relaxing swim. On the return journey you will have the option of following the bay coastline towards the town of Soufriere for some added sightseeing. This tour is generally only available to experienced kayakers.
Fishing Villages & Beach Picnic
Our Fishing Villages & Beach Picnic tour allows you to explore the scenic coastline north of the resort. Once you’ve worked up a good appetite your guide will arrange for the delivery by boat of an excellent lunch prepared especially for you our Anse Chastanet Resort chefs. There are several scenic deserted beach options on which you can enjoy your Caribbean picnic. After lunch and a cooling swim, you will return at a leisurely pace to the resort
For our more romantic guests we offer a Sunset Kayak tour that departs later in the afternoon allowing you to enjoy a Caribbean sunset out on the sea.
Birdwatching Kayak Combo
And if birds are your interest there’s the Birdwatching Kayak Combo that focuses on the activities and nesting sites of a variety of seabirds that make the rugged cliffs in our area their home. This tour is best enjoyed early in the morning or in the late afternoon when the birds are in their nesting areas.
