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.

This excursion was really good. The boat ride over to Nevis was fun ! They were very helpful getting you onto the boat. They had a lot of complementary drinks to chose from to and from the island. We got a kick out of "Ting" (a yummy drink, like mello yellow) and had some really good laughs with that. Once we got to the dock at Nevis, we were able to use the restroom before our guided tour started. Our tour guide was named Lester but went by the nick name smoothie. He was excellent !!! He loved his job and it showed !! He was very professional. After the nice tour we went to the beach and had a nice lunch. We had the fish and it was so good !!! The beach was beautiful as well. Pack a pair of water shoes/beach shoes due to lots of sharp shells in the water. We got back on the boat from the beach, which was really cool being I never did that before. It was a nice day and I will definitely have to go back so that I can tour ST. Kitts next time.

This was the best excursion ever. Our guide was very informative and never rushed us. He took us to a great hot springs and gave us time to get into it. The tour was over an hour, then he took us to a nice beach. I am so glad that we selected this excursion.
The boat crew and the tour bus driver, Lester, were excellent. They were all very polite and very knowledgeable about the history of their island, as well as, the US. The tour gave a good view of the island, it's people, and history. Land and sea were beautiful. Lester was exceptional! Not only did he know all the history, he involved everyone , and remembered everyone's names. He even made a song about the island, and included all the names of the persons on the tour. I would recommend this tour, and recommend Lester! He is awesome!

A high speed power catamaran took us to the island of Nevis where we were transferred to a mini-van for a tour of the island, lunch at an open-air beach restaurant, free time on the beach, and a return trip to St. Kitts. Everything went as per plan and fulfilled our expectations. The staff were very helpful; the food at the restaurant, chicken and rice, although simple fare, was superbly prepared and seasoned to provide an excellent meal. This trip was well worth the price.
