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 just want to get out onto the water, without the cost and complications of sailing on your own you should take a day sailing excursion. Take a look at the listing below to get contact information for excursion providers.

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.
