Default Wheelchair excursions S Carib

Taking a cruise in November to St.lucia, St.Kitts and St. Maarten on Carnival. Wondering if anyone knows what excursions are good for wheelchairs or private tours? I will have people with me who can pick me up and put me in buses or vans.

Default Wheelchair excursions.

Hi there!

We have spent time in St. Lucia and St. Maarten - not St. Kitts. We were able to find cabs at the dock who would take us for good tours of the islands, at a very reasonable price. In St. Maarten we had the driver take us to the French side of the island. We were able to push the wheelchair through the town, ( I think its called Marigot), and had a lovely lunch beside the water. In St. Lucia we had the cab driver take us for a tour of the island. We did see some of the beaches, but accessibility to the beaches was difficult. We do travel with a travel wheelchair that folds easily and fits into a cab trunk. We also transfer from chair to cab seat, and it was quite easy.

Have fun - it's amazing what can be done with a little determination!

Thanks for the info. I have been thinking about just grabing a taxi at one of the ports. My chair breaks down real easy so i know it will fit into a trunk.

Get in touch with Thenford Grey in St. Kitts, Cosol tours in St. Lucia and Joyce Prince in St.Marteen. I am taking my scooter on all of the above! You can find out a lot if you go to the individual ports. Then email them and see if they can take care of you. Nancie
