St. Kitts Catamaran Tour Excursion Reviews
We took a catamaran tour with Princess. It was a scenic trip and my husband went snorkeling. I thought the catamaran was too crowded. There was not enough space for everyone to sit and it was explained to us that people were expected to sit up front once we got started. However, the majority seemed to have a very good time.
Went on Leewards Cruises excursion and it was a wonderful catamaran, sailed close to Nevis and snorkeled there. It was a great day completed with endless Rum Punches and snacks. Snorkel gear provided as well as easy entrance to water for those physically challenged.
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.
