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.

We booked this not knowing if 2 old ladies with bad knees could handle this. When we arrived at the pier we were surprised to see that it was only us & the tour was still on. We boarded the catamaran & set sail for Nevis. Smoothie gave us the best tour & then we went to the beach where we were given a great lunch, time on the beach, an umbrella & chairs. The catamaran was there on the beach ready when we were for the ride back. Our challenge was getting from the water to that step but with the help of an egg crate & 2 great guys we made it & will remain the funniest highlight of our cruise. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour!

I’ll start with the guides. The two crew members that handled the boat trip from St. Kitts to Nevis and return were excellent. Concerned for everyone's safety and comfort. Told us a great deal of the history of the area. The guide on Nevis ranked up with top tour guides we have had on other tours. He kept everyone on the van engaged with trivia questions about the area we were going to visit. On the way back he had questions about the area we had visited. Everyone on the bus was involved. The plantation was very interesting. The meal of local food near the beach was very good. The sea was very rough so those who wanted to go in the water were watched carefully by 3 lifeguards. Smoothie, our guide on the island was very proud of Nevis history. My wife and I highly recommend this tour.

The boat was docked right by our cruise pier. It was an easy walk to the dock and to board our boat. Wonderful ride to Nevis with beers, rum punch and soda - Gorgeous views of St. Kitts and Nevis. Hopped on an air-conditioned van with brief stops at Alexander Hamilton's house, churches as well as the Bath house where we were able to get out and see the views from the rooftop. We also stopped at the hot springs where we could soak in the mineral water. Then we went on a gorgeous scenic drive with loads of information from our driver Merlin. We stopped at a plantation which was gorgeous. Our final stop was at the beach where we were immediately served lunch and drinks. After lunch, we had an hour or so of beach time to relax before the boat picked us up for our return to the cruise pier. Would do again in a heartbeat! A great overview of the history and culture of Nevis.

We took the Nevis Plantation and Beach our on recent cruise. The trip over to the beach was beautiful in the boat. There was a little confusion when we reached the beach because two tour groups were together- those that were staying on the beach and those that were going on the island tour. A quick inquiry cleared that up though. We took an island tour and had an excellent guide. After the tour we had a yummy lunch at a local restaurant and then had plenty of time to stay on the beach. It was nice that the chairs and umbrellas were also included in the tour price. Overall, we thought it was a good value and would recommend this excursion for a fun day.
