The marina in Marigot Bay is busy all year long, making it apparent how popular yachting has become on St. Lucia. A wide range of shops and services are available to sailors here, so docking and staying on your boat during your getaway is just as feasible as getting a hotel room.

If you are just wanting to enjoy a few hours on the open water, without the cost and responsibility of sailing on your own you should take a day sailing excursion. Wondering about taking a boat ride? Check out the listing that follows to obtain information on area day sailing companies.

Boat Rentals and Charters

Marigot Bay may be a popular destination for international sailors, but not everyone will want to make quite the nautical trek to get to this port town. For these people, it makes more sense to charter a boat for a day or two after they've arrived. Not only can you charter a yacht to sail yourself, but you can also get a captained vessel so you can sit back while someone with perhaps more experience takes you up and down the coast.
