whale watching tour

Does anyone know what my chances are of seeing a whale during the week of March 28th to April 4th 2015? If they are slim to none, I would prefer booking something else...

Bon jou lisel445,

Your chances of seeing migratory/non-migratory whales (dolphins, sea turtles,...) are very good all year long and increases during certain whale specie's spring migration (generally Feb-May) to northern feeding grounds.

You reply to alot of questions from St. Lucia, so if you can, here is another: Does the fish fry in Anse la Raye still go on on Good Friday?

Yes to the Fish Fry on Friday Night. I only know this because I've been looking for things to do in the area. http://www.slucia.com/visions/fishfry.html

Looking back through similar threads it appears the Fish Fry doesn't take place on Good Friday (or during Lent), that info was from 2011, but looks unlikely it will be happening during your stay unfortunately.

Bon jou tout moun,

Not much happens on Good Friday apart from church services and family gatherings.

Since vendor alcohol sales are forbidden there is no Anse La Raye Fish Fryday or Gros Islet Jump-Up...

For hotels/resorts, bars & restaurants it's business as usual...

Bless up! Paul
