St Kitts Snorkeling
Snorkeling in St. Kitts is definitely an excursion to write home about. But wait til you're finished snorkeling first.
After meeting your tour guide, you will transfer to the boat, approximately 15 minutes away from the cruise pier, and set out for the beautiful reefs of St. Kitts. Depending on the sea and weather conditions that day, you may reach your first snorkeling spot within 15 minutes. Here, you will enter an undersea world described as enchanting, impressive and breathtaking.
For the next two hours, your captain will take you to the best snorkeling spots of the day. Based on sea conditions, there is usually time to stop at two different snorkel spots for approximately 45 minutes each. You will snorkel reefs abundantly alive with an array of tropical fish, large turtles, eagle rays, chub and snapper. The reefs are an extensive collection of soft corals, fans and sponges.
Refreshments of local non-alcoholic drinks and water will be provided.

The crew was great, "Daddy's Girl". They made sure to explain everything, they watched over everyone. Made sure, no one got in trouble. We went to two different sites; we were able to see fish, turtles, sting rays and loads of starfish. I can't say enough about this crew, everyone had a great time.

This was a nice experience. The boat was just a short walk from the meeting place. The captain and crew of the boat were charming. I have been snorkeling in a number of places...the reefs are not what they used to be in many places because of bleaching but there was still a nice variety of sea life here. I was really charmed by a family of squid that floated just beneath me. I must have spent 10 minutes just floating above them and “communing” with them. Other creatures seen were sea turtles, sting ray, puffer fish, eel, starfish, lobster and many colorful reef fish. We visited 2 different sites, and The total time in the water was about 80 minutes. Be aware that you enter deep water off the boat so being able to swim is a must. Also, make sure some defogger has been added to your mask. The crew said this had been done, but I would ask for more before entering the water because it wasn’t enough and we had fogging issues. Overall, I would recommend.

We went to two stops, The water wasn't crystal clear, but it was still really nice. These spots are technically considered reefs, but they are very close to a cliff, which makes them even more beautiful, in my opinion. What's not beautiful, is all the trash that washes up at the foot of these cliffs onto the small shore. It's not these guys fault. I recognize that there is a lot of traffic in an out of their port. That being said, I think St. Kitts is one of the most beautiful islands in all of the Lesser Antilles, and perhaps even all of the Caribbean. The people are awesome, genuinely friendly, and incredibly accommodating. When on this excursion, explore the idea of taking an underwater camera with you. There weren't a lot of fish, but we still were able to see several starfish and even a lion fish, which was ultra cool. All things considered, yes, I recommend this excursion. A strong 4/5.

This island and excursion was the highlight of our vacation. We had a blast with the crew of the boat. They were friendly and funny. They made a great time even better. We had plenty of time at each location to snorkel and explore. We were able to see a turtle that happened to be cruising by with the help of a crew member. Would love to go back again and again.
