We will be doing the B2B Southern Caribbean Holiday Cruises on board the Celebrity Summit this December. We would like to bird as many ports as possible.

If you have any experience with bird guides on any of the following islands, I would love to read what you have to say about birding those ports:

1. San Juan, Puerto Rico
2. Philipsburg, St. Maarten
3. Basseterre, St. Kitts
4. Roseau, Dominica
5. Fort de France
6. Bridgetown, Barbadoes
7. Castries, St. Lucia
8. St. John's Antigua
9. Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

In Dominica, the only one of these ports where I have hired a guide, the choice is easy: Bertrand ("Dr. Birdy") Jno Baptiste. We hired him 10 years ago, and he is still at it. His rates are quite fair, and he works very hard to get you the good birds. He would not rest until we had seen both parrots. My notes also show that we had Lesser Antillean Swift, Purple-throated Carib, Blue-headed Hummingbird, Ringed Kingfisher, Brown Trembler, Rufous-throated Solitaire, Plumbeous Warbler, and Lesser Antillean Saltator, as well as commoner birds. Lunch was included, too. Because it was raining lightly at lunchtime, he just took us to his house instead of having a picnic lunch. Altogether a great day with good birding and a great fellow.

I have cancelled this cruise - but thankful for suggestions. Saved them for future use.
