Owner description: Welcome to Saluna, providers of Water Taxies, Water Sports, & Boat Tours, based at Reduit Beach, Rodney Bay, St. Lucia, where we provide everything to make your time on and in the waters of St. Lucia as enjoyable as possible!. A Water Taxi is one of the best ways to get around the island's beaches and water-side town and villages, as well as for cruise-ship pickups for Castries for a day on the beach, as well as longer day-trip boat tours to further away laces, such as Soufriere and The Pitons. And whether you take water sport seriously; want to have fun; take a Boat Tour; a Day Trip; Snorkel; Water Ski; Sail; we can provide everything, including full instruction and supervision if required, or just the equipment for those with experience.

“Half the time or twice the price.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

I had chartered a speedboat for trip to a beach barbeque to play a happy birthday tune for a fortieth birthday party and asked how long it would take to get to the venue and what it would cost. I was quoted a price based on at least an hours journey time. The trip including playing the song took just under half an hour so I asked for some form of recompense. The lady in the booking area was very polite but could not do anything as the boss had to be consulted, the boat skipper was less bothered as it was a Sunday and he wanted to go water skiing. I returned the next day and as I wanted to go to Pigeon Island for lunch arranged this only to be told that even this short trip would be charged in full and no refund was coming from the previous overcharge. The experience of the crew and the handling of the boat were good and professional but do not pay up front to Salina water sports for a charter.

“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

The combination land/sea excursion offered by Saluna Watersports at Bay Gardens Beach Resort in Rodney Bay is a must do! This tour has it all – from the speedboat it combines sightseeing at Marigot Bay, incredible views of the majestic Pitons from the water, and snorkeling/sun bathing at Sugar Beach, nestled between the Pitons. Caribbean music playing and the Piton beer and rum punch provided adds to the experience. The land excursion includes a tour through Soufriere, volcanic Sulphur Springs mud bath, short hike in the rainforest with a guide to the warm mineral baths/waterfall, and a delicious Caribbean buffet lunch with breathtaking views of the Pitons. The excursion ends with a fun-filled ride back up the coast on the speedboat and a tour of the marina at Rodney Bay. It’s an all-day adventure and a memorable experience not soon to be forgotten! So much fun -- and a great value. Book it and you won't be sorry! Our tour was with a small group of 8 and we never felt rushed at any time. Thank you to owners, Andre and Dominique. You are the best! Also, a big thank you for the complimentary snorkeling gear you provided for my husband one afternoon.

“Fantastic Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

We loved our power boat trip to Soufriere. Captain Dan and David were fun, knowledgeable and . We got to know the east coast of St. Lucia and discovered several beaches that were only accessible by water taxis that we will definitely be back to visit. The trip had a little of everything, exciting boat ride, mud bath, thermal baths and waterfalls, great local cuisine. Dominique, the owner, was gracious and very accommodating, so glad we found her!
