We have been to St. Thomas 3 other times did the Black Beards Castle, enjoyed reading and learning about the pirates who traveled the Caribbean. Did the 99 steps back to town and then just some shopping and ate lunch in one of the cafes
Here we did the beach, the cab people pushed Harbor Lights rather than the Boathouse, No fee to enter, $20 for 2 chairs and an umbrella, did the glass bottom boat off of the beach, started at $30 pp got it for $20, the hour on the water was just ok but the other couple used the snorkeling equipment and enjoyed it more than us. Not too many people hustling on the beach and the beach was nice.
Used Cosol Tours here, the five hour tour was about 6.5 hours, didn't get back to the ship until 4 and we were a little worried but arrived before the 4:30 leaving. The tour covered the island's attractions and Bumpy was a good guide. The best part was the boat ride to the beach and the plentiful supply of drinks at every stop.
Did the island tour with Rosevelt, he was very good really took the time to explain the islands sites and really knew the islands plants, so if you are interested in the plants of the island he is the one. The most interesting sight was Brimstone Hill Fortress, it was not as big as the forts in San Juan but it was the largest of the English Forts I have been to. Clean and lots of signs and notes of the history of the fort.
We thought we liked St. Kitts the best and the tour was very good, but St. Marten was the best of the islands we have visited in the Caribbean. Our guide David Taylor who turned out was a cousin of the Rosevelt from yesterday. There was only our group of four on the tour another couple cancelled made our day. It was a private tour for only $40 pp. 3.5 hrs turned into 5. Visited lots of locations he was always there when we wanted him. Allowed us to visit things we wanted couldn't have been better. Water and Beer included
