Get up-close to native wildlife
Led by a local guide
Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
Board the charming Santa Lucia, a double-decker boat on St Lucia Estuary. The boat is big enough for all guests to be able to get amazing views of this World Heritage Site. The cruise is perfect for the whole family.
The cruise lasts two hours, and from the water you should see hippo, crocodiles and other game species.
You may even be lucky enough to see eagles swoop down for their daily meal of fish! The boat has a coffee, snack and full bar on board to make sure you are comfortable and enjoying your experience at it’s best.

We opted for the late afternoon cruise as we heard the hippos were more active as evening comes. We were not disappointed. There were hundreds of hippos in the water, even lots of baby one! The boat was respectful and kept its distance but got close enough for us to see the animals. Fascinating experience, so glad we went. There weren’t very many people on the boat so we had the entire upper/outside level to ourselves.
