Day trip to Nevis from St Kitts

Recommended Posts

I had booked it, but they canceled it pretty last minute.  Good thing, took an amazing dune buggy tour instead!

We did a private sightseeing tour on Nevis.  Problem is timing if ferries ahd your ship departure.  I did like Nevis.

I booked a catamaran snorkel/beach day trip to Nevis with Bluewater a few years back... superb day!

This was independent of RCL, I booked on line.

It's very easy to take a ferry back and forth between Nevis and St. Kitts and make your own arrangements.

We considered doing an independent excursion or ferry trip to Nevis but opted to play it safe with a ship excursion and are glad we did. We did the Nevis tour coupled with a beach break and enjoyed it. The beach that all the companies seemed to use is right next to the Four Seasons and has a really yummy restaurant. The beach and water were ok but nothing amazing.

Do it, whether through the cruise line or on your own.  It's a great day!

We did this several years ago and had a great time.  Pretty much most of the boat was our group!  It is a nice sail over to Nevis and then had lunch and beach time, then sailed back.  Everyone enjoyed the day!!

We did "Catamaran Fan Ta Sea to Nevis with Snorkel" through Royal Caribbean. We have done this tour twice and really loved it.  I booked through Royal as it was the only way to do this tour as the company was booked exclusively for the day we were in port.  It was a bit more pricey than doing it on another company, but Fan Ta Sea was rated number one on TripAdvisor and it wasn't particularly out of line with other non cruise line catamarans.  If we go back, we'll book it again.

Just sayin'

We did that same trip. It was a great excursion!

Look closely at the picture (name of the catamaran on its side) you quoted...

This is "Blue Water Safaris", the same company in the review in post #6.

Much less expensive if booked direct.

Have used Blue Water Safaris twice and they are amazing.  Great company, a lot cheaper than RCCL, and a fun day.  Love Nevis.  Have fun not matter what you decide

I would do an independent boat excursion but not the ferries. The ferry has been known to be canceled. Happened to a couple I met on one of my sailings. They had to meet the ship at the next port.

Hello ragethjj23,

What dune buggy tour company did you use? We are interested in doing this as well.
