Each nautical class can be custom-tailored to the interests of guests. These nautical activities are ideal for families to participate in together to form indelible experiences that they will remember in years to come.

    Guests will also be able to enjoy access to the Marina’s wide-range of boutiques, bars, restaurants and entertainment outlets pre-and-post classes.

  • Capella Junior Top Chef Program – Curated by the resort’s well-traveled Executive Chef Brendan McGowan, you will receive an expert tutorial on Saint Lucian delicacies and leave with delightful culinary inspiration and recipes to replicate at home. McGowan has helmed some of the world’s best restaurants and most recently opened the St. Regis Hotel in Doha, Qatar and prior to that the Ritz-Carlton in Istanbul.McGowan has crafted an educational culinary program which takes advantage of the island’s rich cachet of fruits, vegetables and seafood and guests will be able to immerse themselves in traditional as well as contemporary Lucian recipes. Classes are subject to prior consultation on food allergies or dietary restrictions.

    As part of the Top Chef Junior Program, children can also partake in “Cookie Monster Classes” where they learn how to bake cookies using ingredients found in Saint Lucia and bring back a delicious snack to share with the family.

  • Junior Master Gardener Program – Complementing the Capella Junior Top Chef Program is a horti-cultural themed class where guests can learn about the art of plant cultivation and the fauna indigenous to Saint Lucia. Chef McGowan and his team will also assist you in identifying plants which contain healthy and curative qualities (subject to prior consultation on food allergies or dietary restrictions).

These activities have been carefully thought of, ensuring that there is something for every guest, couple or family, accommodating all tastes. One thing to be certain of, these signature Capella activities allow families the chance to spend precious, quality time together, whilst offering-up a plate of action-packed, adrenaline pumped, continuous fun that is certainly out of the norm.

But fear not, Capella Marigot Bay also believes in rewarding adults/parents with a little down time, alone.
