St. Kitts Catamaran Tour Excursion Reviews

Home > Member Reviews > St. Kitts Shore Excursions > Catamaran Tour

Hop aboard a catamaran for a fun and scenic trip along the coastline of beautiful St. Kitts. It's a great way to enjoy the turquoise waters and beautiful weather without jumping in the ocean yourself.

This was a great excursion. We traveled around the Island and then took a Catamaran back to the ship, The train trip was great.

We actually took excursions on St. Kitts and Dominica and were glad that we did. I read a lot about these two islands prior to our cruise and decided it was best to book an excursion through RCI versus explore these islands on our own. On St. Kitts, we took a catamaran excursion that took us to a cove where we snorkeled. We had a blast as they played Bob Marley to and from Basseterre. We had some brewskies called Carib which is from the islands and very delightful. Dominica is where the second Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. It is very tropical and we took the River, Tubing, Rainforest Drive and Hibiscus Falls excursion. The Hibiscus Falls is beautiful - I was surprised that Dominica had such a large rainforest area, it truly was beautiful but they have a lot of poverty. The river tubing was okay but they are always trying to sell you something wherever you go.

Booked in on-line and not on the boat.
It had seating for a lot more people than we actually had. There were full sized restrooms, a sunning deck on the roof and trampoline nets at the bow. They also have an open bar with beers, soda and liquor beverages.
After we were well away from shore they put the sails up and shut down the engines for a nice quiet cruise. We moored near the shoreline and they gave everyone time to swim or snorkel. They also served a light lunch consisting of some local dishes.

Cat tour to Nevis was wonderful, BBQ lunch was good; but we barely made the ship (10 min prior to departure). Either the time needs to be extended for St Kitts or eliminate the island. If we hadn't been in a ship tour we would have been stressing.

We booked a catamaran sail & snorkel through the cruise line. The vessel was great and thou initially I thought it would be crowded, it didn't feel that was as we made our way to the snorkel spot. We had about an hour of snorkel time and the kids enjoyed exploring the sea life and coral formations. There was also a sunken ship that we could explore. Upon returning to the ship, the crew offered a much appreciated freshwater shower and then an open bar as we returned to the port area. Overall a very enjoyable experience. After returning to the port, we caught a cab and went to Cockleshell beach. W had lunch at a restaurant on the beach and spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying a beach chair and swimming in the warm water. A great day and we're looking forward to returning.

The sail portion of the trip was perfect. I would warn anyone visiting St. Kitts that upon getting off the tour bus, we were ambushed by a guy with two monkeys, who immediately put one on each of our heads, grabbed our camera, took pictures and asked for money. We paid what they asked, but in retrospect, we would have given them half what they asked for.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip though the snorkelling could have been better. Bring tee shirts to snorkle in even with water sports sunscreen our backs got burnt. Conaree Bay is a lovely place to pass the afternoon

Nice excursion but not for those prone to motion sickness. The seas were rough on the small catamaran, but lunch was nice. The crew was very helpful and friendly. entertaining. A good excursion overall.

St. Kitts is BEAUTIFUL! We took another catamaran cruise to Cockleshell Bay. On the way, we stopped at another area to snorkel. It was not very good. Huge rocks and not a lot to see. We continued on to Cockleshell Bay and it was very nice. The beach was not very deep,but is was long. Walking along the beach was very relaxing. My husband really loved going into the water there.

We booked the Full Day catamaran St. Kitts to Nevis excursion thru Port Promotions, and the company they used in St. Kitts, Caribbean Journey Masters informed us the excursion was canceled when we showed up at the dock. Said they didn't have enough people, which is a little hard to believe, since the same type of excursion was full thru Celebrity 3 weeks prior to sailing.

Did the Catamaran Fan-ta-sea thru Carnival in St Kitts. Had a blast. Snorkeling was only so so but the crew/service was great. Lunch was nice. The rum punch was awesome but be careful, VERY strong.

Wednesday was St. Kitts and we did the Fan-ta-sea Catamaran excursion booked through the ship. This excursion promised snorkeling, lunch, beach time and an open bar and technically delivered on all four. After a short walk from the pier, we boarded the Spirit of St. Kitts catamaran and set sail for Shitten Bay for snorkeling. Although not quite as windy as St. Martin, we actually had enough wind to sail! The snorkeling was underwhelming. A few fish and very little coral. After snorkeling, rum punch and Carib beer were offered and many passengers were already quite happy by the time we reached our beach destination on Nevis. Lunch was very good; barbecued chicken, various salads and soft drinks. The bar was also open on the beach. The party crowd stayed in the water near the boat, but you could walk a few yards down the beach for some tranquility. The ride back was quite fun with music and dancing (conga line!) and the crew did a good job of bringing everyone drinks while simultaneously making sure no one fell off the boat. It was a very enjoyable trip, but if your primary goal is to snorkel, this isn't the trip for you. If your primary goal is to enjoy a day on the water with an open bar, this is your excursion!

We were surprised by the 70 total on this excursion, and were concerned that we would feel "cramped". Not to worry....the cattamaran had PLENTY of room front and back, which allowed the crowd to divide into "highly energetic" in the back, and "mellow relaxing" at the front of the boat. The weather was picture-perfect, with just a little wind, but plenty of sun and warmth, without being stifling hot. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. The bar was opened as soon as the safety drill was finished, and the party started right away! Snorkeling was great and the instructor for first-timers was very helpful and encouraging. After the morning of snorkeling, and a few rum punches, a barbecue lunch was served at a private cove. The offerings were adequate - fresh salad, chicken and hot dogs - basic fare. Post lunch snorkeling, a nap, and more rum punch kicked the party into high gear. The crowd had divided into it's preference (all on it's own!) and the dirty dancing, pole dancing and conga lines in the back made for some great pictures and memories. Even the crew joined in the fun, singing and dancing to entertain the guests. When asked for our preference for music, the unanimous choice was REGGAE!! People either danced, or enjoyed watching others, but everyone seemed to have a great time! I gave this a 5+ rating for the value, crew (worth the tip), the music, the snorkeling, and the whole package! Highly recommend this excursion! We booked it through Pereira Tours.

Included snorkeling. Great fun! I'll always opt for a catamaran/snorkel on an island I've previously visited. Just a fun, leisurely way to spend an afternoon.
