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.

A nice full day (left with time to spare), to explore St. Nevis. Half hour boat ride (drinks included) to St. Nevis. Vehicle picks you up to drive you around the island, and points out highlights/stops for pictures. Yummy lunch is provided, chicken or fish both great! Plenty of time on the beach. Then boat ride back. Only wished we would have seen more of St. Kitt's. Great excursion!

Our family of 3 adults and 2 seniors took this excursion in March 2018. It was a little hard to locate the tour company kiosk, but once we located it (just beyond the main port entrance) everything else went smoothly. We joined about 7 other passengers for a high speed catamaran trip from the ship port to the other side of the island where we were met by our local tour guide 'Cookie' for an island tour in an air conditioned mini bus. Cookie was very personable and informative and answered all of our questions and gave us ample time to take photos. The lunch that came included with the tour was at a little beach side cafe and the food was FABULOUS (actually better than some of the food we had on our cruise ship!) Then after lunch we were provided with beach chairs and umbrella and about 1.5 hours of beach time before we boarded our catamaran for the ride back to the cruise ship. This was a very pleasant excursion and we felt is was a great value since lunch was included.
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.
