Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a GREAT way to spend our last day in St Lucia! Hired Shashamane for the day taking four friends up to Pigeon Island. It was amazing. Our capital and guide were just wonderful, telling us about things as we cruised up through the waterway to the North side of the island. We snorkeled, climbed up to the lookout on Pigeon Island. On the way back to Marigot Bay our guide played music. Old favs from our younger days…gee how did he know. The BEST DAY! Thanks!

Don’t miss this amazing experience! We loved it so much in 2023 we did it again last week (January 2024) and did a few different things. Denver is great at communicating before you arrive and seeing him and Chad arrive at the dock was like reuniting with old friends!!! We went to sugar beach with stunning views of the Pitons - stopping along the way to see a bat cave - we snorkeled at Sugar Beach and the entire time Denver and Chad made sure we were taken care of and they know EVERYONE! Then we went back to Marigot Bay for relaxing beach time and amazing local food!! Once again VIP treatment all the way. It rained a few times but it was just liquid sunshine and we danced in the rain- simply magical

Our trip was wonderful!! We did a full 6-7 hour trip with Island Boy and Captain Charlie. Island Boy was a lot of fun and did a good job pointing out things along the shore. We chose to go to the Pitons first, and then stop in Soufriere where Island Boy recommended a delicious local lunch spot. From there we took a short taxi ride to the Diamond Falls Botanical gardens ($7/person) where a local guide gave us a tour around the gardens. Once we got back to the boat, we went snorkeling in an incredible reef and sat on a small secluded beach. On the way back toward Rodney Bay Marina, we stopped in Marigot Bay where we were able to pay for the trip via credit card (note: there is a 5% additional fee to pay by credit card). We enjoyed the beers and rum punch on board, Island Boy and Charlie were great, and we truly felt the “island vibes” in their company. We highly recommend them! (Side note: Denver was very responsive when we were emailing back and forth with our questions, too). Thank you, Island Boy and Charlie for a fun day!!

Denver and Island boy took great care of us on our 4 hour fishing trip. It was at the top of the list of our favorite things we did while in St Lucia. We caught 2 snappers and a mackerel along with a couple lizard fish. The trip was well organized and worth every cent. Would definitely do it again, only thing is we would have done it sooner in the week so we would have had more time to make fish dinners. Also, recommend bringing a bag to take your fish home in!

When we travel to a location with water, we always try to see it by water. I found Shashamane Experience from their great TripAdvisor reviews. And there's a reason they earned them 100% - they are GREAT! From the moment I contacted them, they were proactively communicative. Denver was responsive and flexible when we needed to tweak our departure time.

The driver, Charlie, and first mate, Island Boy (Chad), were full of local information, charming, funny, and offered great hospitality.

We were a party of 6, were comfortable in the boat, and had all the sun or shade we wanted.

We had three fantastic snorkeling opportunities and a couple of great beach visits. When we asked for some local restaurant recommendations, we all went to a local place in Soufriere, which was GREAT with a local menu and vibe.

I love seeing a small business operate like this, each person fulfilling their role perfectly. We loved the day we spent with Chad and Charlie – and will do it again when we return. Thanks for some GREAT memories!

Charlie and Chad were amazing tour guides and tour operators. They were kind, never rushed us and was very patient. I would recommend them very highly. They made sure we stayed safe while snorkeling. They also had an excellent lunch suggestion in Soufriere, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Mr. Denver was the person who we called to plan and book the trip. We were very glad we could enjoy the west coast of St. Lucia all the way from Marigot bay to Sugar beach.

Amazing tour! We had the best time with Denver and Island Boy. They took us fishing and snorkeling per our request and helped us catch a barracuda! They cooked it for us and it was probably the best fish we’ve ever had. Highly recommend this tour it was a great experience and much better than a large group tour.

AMAZING experience with Captain Denver and co-captain Chad! They were incredibly flexible with our preferences for activities and exploration of the island via boat. We spent ample time snorkeling in areas that were not too crowded with other tourists and allowed us to spend as little or as much time in each place we visited including Sugar Beach, around the Pitons and multiple other snorkel sites. We were also shown less populated beach areas on the island which was awesome to have insight from the locals. Private excursion with the family was definitely the highlight of our trip!! The rum punch and Piton beers were also a great touch :)

We were recommended this experience and are so thankful!! They also offer transport to the waterfall, natural sulfur bath, etc - so much to do and explore!

We had a fantastic trip with Denver and Chad - they were friendly, funny and incredibly informative about this beautiful island and its many charms. They were accommodating and flexible on times and there were plenty of drinks on board - delicious punch, local Piton beer and soft drinks. We will definitely use them when we come next and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for any kind of St Lucia excursion.

We arranged a sunset and fishing trip with Denver who is the owner of Sheshemene experience. We had a great time. Not only did we get to experience catching a fish on the beautiful island of Saint Lucia but we also witnessed a gorgeous sunset. Denver also gave us history of the island. Overall, great experience and highly recommend!
