Nevis Plantation and Beach
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.
Beautiful island! Wonderful tour by Ingrid.

My wife and I enjoyed this excursion. It was a great introduction to Nevis. A look at the history, some key sites, and a wonderful beach and lunch. The boat trip is fast, so no wasting time getting to and from St Kitts.

Well run outing to a beach at Nevis. We did not do the tour part of the excursion, opting to go straight to the beach. We were provided with an umbrella and two chairs. Lunch was a short walk to a local restaurant, and was delicious!

We had a wonderful time on this shore excursion. We enjoyed the catamaran boat ride, the grandchildren loved seeing the monkeys. I would have loved seeing inside of the Alexander Hamilton plantation house. I thought the hotel they showed us was beautiful!

This was fantastic! We took a boat from the dock over to Nevis and they served drinks on the way and back. The tour of the island in which our guide was so good and informative, we went to all different places even the hot springs.Then we went to have a lunch on the beach at a restaurant and the grouper was fresh and excellent. We lounged by the water and swam. Then we had to board the boat from the water to go back to the ship.
