Well dreams do come true at the recently renovated Capella Marigot Bay Resort & Marina, Saint Lucia which has introduced exciting interactive programs for travelers to join. Select from the following classes and programs and impress friends and families with your new-found skills (suitable for children as well): 

·         Capella Kids Cooking Classes – Budding top chefs can learn from the best alongside the culinary team at Capella Marigot Bay.

With this experience, each guest is provided with their own monogrammed snorkel glasses, perfect for exploring Saint Lucia’s amazing coral reefs and colorful aquatic culture. You will be taken by boat to a private cove where you will be taught everything you need to know about snorkeling. Guests also meet with a local fisherman who, while telling seafaring tales based on local legend, will introduce you to the traditions of Saint Lucian fishing. He will guide you throughout his favorite fishing spots and show you how to reel in the best catch, which will be served later in the afternoon on a secluded beach in traditional Saint Lucian style. Back in your room a gift basket with jerk spices and recipes awaits as you get a good night’s sleep after a fun day at sea
