St. Kitts Catamaran Tour Excursion Reviews

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.

WONDERFUL catamaran tour. We took a 5 minute walk from our ship (NO BUS-yay!) to the catamaran and boarded for a beautiful sail along the coast to our snorkeling site. Snorkeling gear and instruction was provided. Easy steps down into the water from the boat. Saw lots of fish. After an hour and a half of snorkeling, reboard the boat for a simple lunch of green salad, curry potato salad, beans, bread,chips and juice, soft drinks or rum punch. THEN they took us to a beautiful beach on the island of Nevis where we rented 2 chairs and an umbrella for $10 and spent another hour and a half. They guys from the boat served more drinks, always with a smile. Easy reboard to the catamaran as they pulled right up to the beach. We left and had to turn around to pick up 2 of our passengers who wandered off. Thank goodness a fellow passenger saw them waving wildly from shore and recognized them as having been on board with us. They were appropriately greeted with hoots and hollers and had to do a "walk of shame". (All in good fun) An hour and a half ride back to the ship, a little shopping in the village, and a happy time overall. Read Less

This was the catamaran and snorkel. Price on ship was comparative to things I saw to book on our own. Was a fun excursion, the staff was fun, being out on the water wonderful. Snorkeling was OK- clear water, but nothing unusual to see compared to other islands. Glad we had an excursion booked on this island. Read Less

35 people on the tour, lots of room and the drinks were flowing! This was a LONG day but very fun if you enjoy sailing. We stopped to snorkel at a popular spot. Lunch was good, chicken, pasta salad, banana bread, rice/beans.

This was the second half of our "rail and sail" excursion. The 2 busses dropped everyone off, but no catamaran was present. One of the busses left leaving everyone out in the sun with no water for about 45 minutes. Only to come back telling us he gold hold of the tour company and there was some sort of mistake and the catamaran was not coming. This was the part of the excursion we were really looking forward to the most! The excursion desk was **really** rude about the whole experience, and refunded half of the excursion cost. Not satisfied with the way we were treated (having a disabled adult with us), they eventually refunded the entire cost of the excursion. Read Less

We took a 6-hour catamaran tour and had the time of our lives! The crew was unbelievably friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed free-flowing rum punch and Carib beer along with a Caribbean home cooked meal. Snorkeling was incredible; we saw a stingray and many larger fish. The beach break was about an hour and a half. The catamaran pulled up right onto the beach, so we did not have to worry about taking a dingy to shore. Well worth the money! Read Less

We opted to do the KT39 Caribbean Scenic Rail & Sail Tour. When we got to the cruise terminal, there was a huge crowd of guests not only from our ship but from the recently-arrived Celebrity Silhouette cruise ship as well. Many cruisers were on the rail only portion of the tour and the tour operators did not do a very good job to get everyone separated; some Celebrity guests ended up on our tour by mistake. We were escorted to a nearby pier and boarded a large catamaran boat, equipped for both sail as well as power. One of the more awkward moments was a mandatory requirement to remove socks and shoes before boarding; this was very difficult for a largely senior crowd (including ourselves) as there was no where to sit to do this and we were hopping around on a narrow pier, close to the water. After placing our footwear into buckets, we boarded the boat, were briefed on the vessel’s facilities, safety procedures and, for many, the best part: the bar and snacks available (complimentary). We headed out of the harbour and around the west side of the island. Our Captain narrated our journey’s sightseeing as well as a history of St. Kitts and Nevis. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and the crew were fantastic, and so very helpful to us, most of which were seniors. After 90 minutes, we pulled into a small harbour near the northwest tip of the island, and proceeded to put our footwear back on, this time on a very narrow pier, with people pushing past and the every-present danger of being knocked into the water – a very bad arrangement. We boarded waiting mini-buses and were driven to a railhead about ten miles from the harbour stop. After a few minutes, we boarded a double-decker coach, part of a four-coach narrow gauge railroad train, for a tour around the north and eastern parts of the island. We started off at a very slow rate of speed (about 10 miles per hour). We saw some spectacular scenery, gorges, beaches, other islands (Saba, for example) in the distance, as well as scenes of abandoned sugar cane plantations, and devastated areas, due to neglect as well as hurricane damage. The journey was quite repetitive in what we saw and after one hour, we had had enough. Unfortunately, at 10 miles per hour, it was going to last another hour, and it did. The coaches are nicely equipped, staff are willing to serve as much punch, 150-proof rum and soft drinks as one wanted, they are restroom-equipped but the ride itself was noisy, squeaking wheels and constant rocking; it did not add to what we had seen advertised on the RCI website and the shorex presentations we had seen. There was a narrator giving the history of what we were supposed to see but the noise from the rickety coaches was so loud we could not hear her. We finally arrived back at the pier, shopped a bit, and then returned to the ship for lunch. Read Less

For St Kitts, we did the Catamaran sailing to Nevis excursion. For me, this was the best excursion I've been on during a cruise. This excursion featured a leisurely catamaran sailing to Nevis. It included an open, unlimited bar with water, soft drinks, beers, and rum punches, and then right before we landed on the beach, there was a grilled lunch served. The Catamaran crew were excellent and provided great service. The beach itself was nice, though for me not the star of this excursion. The sail back was a whole lot of fun. They put up all the sails and we were clipping along pretty good. It was a very exciting ride back. Highly recommend this excursion to others! Read Less

We took the Catamaran and Snorkel tour. The tour left from a dock around the corner from the port. We sailed out to the area between St.Kitts and Nevis, and then back to a small cove. There were plenty of fish to see, and the water was calm and warm. The crew of the catamaran were very friendly, and even showered us off with fresh water when we got back on the boat (i've never had anyone do this on my other snorkeling tours before). The rum punch and beers (and non-alcoholic drinks) were free flowing on the sail back. Read Less
