Catamaran and Nevis Beach Excursion

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done the Catamaran to Nevis excursion offered by RC? 

We usually do the excursions (yes I know, can get cheaper on our own) and are looking for a different beach to go to in St. Kitts. Does anyone know how much beach time there is? Or is most of the time on the Catamaran? Also it says beach chairs and umbrella not provided. Does that mean none for rent?

Thanks in advance, everyone is always so helpful.

Not shure if RC have changed their Beach on Nevis, as we went to Pinneys for BBQ lunch and drinks after snorkelling.  Pinneys backs onto the Four Seasons Resort.  No beds for rental but shade under the trees.  We were there for about 2 hours.

We just returned from St. Kitts/Nevis and did this tour:

We had about 10 on a small motor boat that picked you up at the cruise terminal.  Took a quick, 25 minute trip over to Nevis where all but the three of us got off the boat to do a Plantation Tour then Beach Break. 

 

We were taken to Pinney Beach where there were chairs and umbrellas waiting for us.  Spent about three hours on the beach there, with a wonderful lunch and bar set up (extra charge), but Ebony was fantastic, she took good care of us.   There is a roped off swimming area, and the chairs were at the water's edge.  Just lovely.

 

The beach is literally 50 feet from the Four Seasons Beach and Resort (and you can help yourself to their wifi).

 

The boat came and picked us up, and back to St. Kitts we went, with time to wander the port shops.

In Feb 2017 we did the Fan-Ta-Sea Catamaran/snorkel excursion and really enjoyed it. As I recall we stopped at a couple beaches during the excursion allowing us 1-2 hours of beach time. It seems that chairs may have been available (for rent) at one of the stops....maybe the same as the lunch stop? Overall...the excursion was fun, the crew was great, and we are planning to re-book this excursion again when we’re back in St Kitts on our next cruise.
