Sale Price: $90.00
Experience the Best of St. Kitts and Nevis when you choose this relaxing 5-hour tour that takes you on a scenic boat ride from St. Kitts to Nevis for a guided island tour including the Nisbet Plantation and a Caribbean-style lunch on the beach.
Board your fast and comfortable power catamaran direct from the St. Kitts cruise port to Charlestown on the beautiful sister island of Nevis, known in colonial days as the Queen of the Caribbean.
Once in Nevis you will board an air-conditioned van for a panoramic tour of the island complete with lush tropical vegetation competing for your attention along with spectacular vistas of the Caribbean Sea.
On this St. Kitts excursion, a panoramic island tour of Nevis includes spectacular views and historical interest. Pause for a photo stop at Hamilton House, the birthplace of the United States' first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. The building is currently used as a museum and hosts the meetings of the Nevis house of Assembly. Your guide will point out interesting landmarks and you will have an opportunity to visit St. Thomas Lowland Church, built in 1643, the oldest Anglican Church in the Caribbean, where you will enjoy spectacular views back to St. Kitts.
The Highlight of your St. Kitts tour is a stop at Nisbet Plantation, the home of Fanny Nisbet, who, in 1778 married Admiral (then Lieutenant) Horatio Nelson in Nevis.
Next, your guide will take you through quaint villages to the sands of a beautiful beach for a Caribbean-style lunch served at a beach side restaurant. Enjoy a delicious rum or fruit punch, as well as an included beach chair and shared umbrella. Perhaps take a refreshing dip in the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea or simply relax on the beach.
When it is time to re-board your catamaran for the return journey to the cruise ship pier/port, you will board straight from the beach.

We got on a boat with 12 other guests in St. Kitts over to Nevis and were given the choice to go straight to the beach or do a land tour then to the Beach for lunch. we chose the land tour. We went to the hot pubic baths, then to an old church and a stop at a hotel then to the beach where we had a fantastic lunch of grouper, beans and rice. We enjoyed the beach for 1 1/2 hours then took the boat back to St. Kitts. We really enjoyed this tour as we had never been to Nevis. What a beautiful place. Great tour! It was a beautiful sunny day. This tour was definately worth the money and time.
History, ride on water and on shore, Excellent people that made you feel comfortable

This excursion started out with a boat ride over to Nevis with the rum punch flowing! Once we arrived on Nevis, our tour guide was waiting for us and we loaded the jitney. We were 10 passengers so we had lots of room to move around. We toured the island and lots of time for photographs. After finishing the island tour we were taken to the beach where we had a delicious lunch (I had the jerk chicken) and beverages. We then had 1 1/2 hours on the beach with a lounge chair and umbrella. Our boat ride back to St. Kitts picked us up directly from the beach. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable day and I highly recommend this excursions.

We were picked up at the Marina on St Kitts by a power cat with a great crew for the trip to Nevis. Upon our arrival we were picked up by an open air bus with a driver named Smoothie, he put on a great guided tour of the island including Alexander Hamilton's home. After a great lunch we were left on the beach to enjoy a couple of hours of sun. We were picked up off the beach by the power cat and returned to the Marina. A great trip.

We enjoyed this excursion---went by a smaller catamaran to Nevis Plantation and then continued on in an open air bus. Saw beautiful scenery and was told the history of the island. We really enjoyed the Nevis Hot Springs. We were served a meal when we got to the beach and then had time to get into the water--chairs and umbrella was furnished. Would take this excursion again.
