Get amazed by the majesty of St. Lucia's rainforest on this unique Aerial Tram excursion. Nature is at its finest here and filled with amazing flora and fauna along with a multitude of colorful tropical birds and natural wildlife. Come to see for yourself why this experience has been rated as "excellent" by TripAdvisor. Be sure to bring your camera along, you won't want to miss these shots!

This fun-filled St. Lucia excursion day begins when you meet with your shore excursion guide inside your St. Lucia cruise ship terminal. You'll be shown your comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation for the 30-minute, scenic drive to the northeast end of St. Lucia. By the time you arrive at the tram, you will be fully immersed in the rainforest and its beauty will amaze you.

Before your aerial tram excursion ride, you will be given brief safety instructions. You may also store your belongings in lockers at the site. The locker cost is $3.00 USD plus a $5.00 USD deposit. You'll then head to your gondola-shaped tram that will seat 8 passengers and 1 guide who is, typically, a naturalist and can explain much about the sights you are about to see. The walk from the entrance to the Aerial Tram is 164 ft (50 meters) and you will have an amazing view from the tallest part of the Aerial Tram, 120 ft (36 meters)! 

The Castries Waterworks Reserve is the oldest protected forest area on St. Lucia and is the preferred habitat for most of the tropical birds found on the island. Make sure to keep an eye out for them as you are traveling down through the forest. This reserve is so well protected that on the 25th of November, 2016, Prince Harry officially designated the Castries Water Works Reserve and the surrounding rainforest as Saint Lucia's contribution to The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy Project.

As you descend, your St. Lucia excursion guide will point out specific areas and give you fascinating information. As mentioned before, be sure to keep an eye out for tropical birds and you'll want to keep that camera ready as well. You will have the ability to see far more of the rainforest than you could have by merely hiking the trails. The tram ride is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Once the aerial tram excursion comes to an end, you'll have a bit of time to do just that. You have a 20-minute hike to explore a few of the trails. This is optional, of course, and you would need walking shoes to do this activity. You'll still be accompanied by a naturalist who can now explain the tropical foliage you see once you are on land. You'll learn about the medicinal properties, the spices found here, even the length of a tropical blossom's life, and much more on your hike. The trails are easy, but comfortable walking shoes are still recommended. If you are not in the mood to walk the trail, you can relax at the coffee/gift shop deck and still admire the nature of the place.

Once that time comes to an end, you can board your St. Lucia shore excursion transportation again and sit back and relax. You'll be returned to your St. Lucia cruise ship terminal.

Our tour guide, Rachel, was absolutely the best! She knew so much and educated us to make the experience that much better. We were so glad we booked the excursion and would love to come back again when we have more time.

The tram excursion was all that we expected. Crystal was an amazing tour guide she made us laugh and have fun but was so knowledgeable of the flora and fauna. We were amazed that she did not have a botany degree.

Soooo Good
     5/5  (Visited on February 2020)
We were unsure about taking this excursion but we’re totally overwhelmed by how great it was. My husband doesn’t like heights but this gradually elevated gondola through the rainforest was breathtaking. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained what we were seeing throughout the hour. It was totally silent and like going back in time. The drinks at the end of the ride were good too. We did the eXtra twenty minute hike which did have some rough places that were hard to navigate...not for those with any mobility issues. The only suggestion I can make to improve the experience is to get the van driver a microphone since only those sitting in the front could hear him. We lost most of his dialogue. We were picked up on time and it even lasted longer than described. We returned to the ship with plenty of time to walk around.

I was really looking forward to this excursion but also very nervous since I hate heights. But it was so wonderful and we felt completely safe and we were to busy looking at the hummingbirds and plants and trees to even feel the slight bit nervous. The guide was very informative and the ride so smooth that you barely felt it moving. You get to see all 3 parts of the forest by starting low then the middle and finally above the canopy. The also have a walking trail and a hummingbird garden you can do.

Great views and relaxing

This was a great excursion. Our guide Alex was a riot.He made the ride fun and personable. We were on the March 22,2019 Celebrity Reflection. Getting off the ship was a breeze and met guide at 9:00 am right on pier. There were four of us. One from our group was a little afraid of heights but did fine with it. The tram ran at a slow pace. Alex explained things very well. You need to keep him around. Great asset! Would recommend this excursion to all.
