Little Bay: Montserrat Buried City
Get a bird's eye view of the Buried City from Richmond Hill while standing poolside at the destroyed Montserrat Spring Hotel. Then pop in to what was once the first Museum in Montserrat before setting out for the Buried City. You will drive through eerily empty villages and towns with shuttered, burnt out and buried buildings, some now covered in climbing plant life. And then stand near the deep water harbor and behold the majesty of what is now the tallest mountain on Montserrat even now still growing out of where once stood churches, schools, homes and places of business. Head out of the Buried City to the Woodlands Beach facility where you will be served an exotic Caribbean lunch including Calypso chicken, seasoned rice and plantain fritters. Have a dip in the blue sparkling Caribbean Sea or just relax under the canopy of almond trees and sip on your rum punch. You will have time to browse the local craft dealers’ stands at the Woodlands facility and take a piece of Montserrat’s volcano home with you.

Please note:  Bring your camera. Conditions in the Buried City are dusty and may impact those with respiratory problems. Dust masks will be provided. If you plan to swim at Woodlands Beach bring your swim suit and a towel.

Little Bay: Montserrat Coastal Boat Tour
Take a slow lazy cruise along the shore and see the Buried City of Plymouth from a different vantage point. You will sail past Plymouth on to what was the village of St Patrick's, now nothing more than volcanic ruble. Ask your boat captain to stop and allow you to capture the power of nature on your camera as you  view the huge deltas that volcanic activity have created  along the coastline adding over  50 square miles to the land space of Montserrat.  As you sail back to Port Little Bay Captain Kelly or Captain Lee will sail past Rendezvous Beach, the lone white-sand beach and another of Montserrat's many quirks of nature.  As you re-enter Little Bay you will be able to see the indomitable spirit of Montserrat as you view the full impact of the Marine Village and the development of their new town.

Please note:  Occasionally the water is choppy so persons prone to motion sickness should take the necessary precautions prior to the tour.

Buy all your volcano souvenirs from the Observatory then you will head over to the Montserrat National Trust Museum to view an exhibition called "Montserrat Volcano - A People Moving Forward.” The exhibition and Museum Guides will share before and after photography and help you to understand how Montserrat dealt with shifts in population centers, rapid housing solutions, and the economics of sudden population decline over the 20 years of volcanic activity. You will have time to browse local craft vendor stands and enjoy some light refreshments.  You will be returned to your waiting yacht having successfully attended and scored an "A" in your first Volcano 101 Class.

Please note: The road to the Observatory is narrow and winding. Driving is on the left-hand side. Persons prone to motion sickness should take the necessary medication prior to the start of the tour. The Observatory has two floors and stairs.

All aboard a semi-submersible to discover the rich undersea life surrounding St. Barts, without even getting wet! After boarding, you may choose to either stay outside on the open deck or enter the tunnel-like hull equipped with underwater windows. At the harbor’s entrance, keep watch for the many green turtles that frequent this area. Soon, the semi-sub passes over the wreck of the island freighter Marignan. Cross the southeastern edge of the St. Barts Marine Park and arrays of undersea marvels will soon be revealed before your eyes. The seabed is full of colorful coral reefs, and schools of Sergeant Major Fish. On your arrival at The Saints, the onboard crew will feed schools of fish. Don’t be surprised if seemingly hundreds of fish almost push against your window. You may even glimpse a shark or two! After approximately 10 minutes, your semi-sub heads back to the pier. You may wish to stay out on the upper deck for picturesque views of the coastline and graceful anchored yachts.

Please note:  The semi-submersible has steep interior steps. The itinerary may be amended at the Captain’s discretion based on weather conditions, general safety, or any other factor. There can be no guaranteed sightings of any specific sea life.
