St. Kitts (Port Zante) 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.

Personnel were excellent. It was very clean and well kept. Was surprised by the boxed lunch and it was very tasty. They offered unlimited drinks on board.

The Nevis BBQ was a long ride on the Catamaran which might not have been too bad but there were too many people crammed onto the boat. Finding a seat was nearly impossible. If you get stuck on deck, be prepared for back pain. The abundance of free alcohol cured some of the pain. Good crew. Read Less

This catamaran tour was the smoothest ride aboard a lovely sailboat. The experienced and uber-friendly crew helped make this a day we'll never forget. The snorkeling was good ... loads of coral and fish below the surface. The rinse-off with fresh water after snorkeling was a nice touch as was the homemade banana bread and rum punch!! Read Less

Off the ship, you walk a relatively short distance to the catamaran. Then its 1 hour approx sailing to the snorkel site. Snorkel gear is provided (but we used our own masks and snorkels)...snorkeling was quite good, with excellent visibility. Then, back on the boat, where we had chicken, hot dogs, rice and beans, coleslaw, pasta salad, and bread. Also, the bar opened up (boy did the bar ever open up!) Another hour sailing to Nexus, where we had a little over an hour on the beach..and, they brought the beer and booze ashore!. After that, back on the catamaran for a 2 hour sail back to the ship. The good: Very nice sailing, good snorkeling, good food, nice beach, alcohol was free-flowing. The bad: Alcohol was free-flowing...if you drank too much (some in our party did), the 2 hour sail back to the ship can seem pretty long if you get drunk and queasy. I drank my fill of beer, but still had a wonderful time... Hint: Avoid the rum punch...its good, but it is strong, and it WILL sneak up on you! Nuff said! Read Less

Found that the Travel Agent did not schedule to trip or as we found the Celebrity website just does not record additions or changes, but we did not have the desired trip schedule after port check-in. So we discussed this with the Silhouette Shore Excursion staff and then just scheduled the Catamaran trip. Celebrity staff dropped the ball as we exited the ship and could not found any excursion staff for our excursion. I found a staff member and discussed this concern and found that they just do not care. I would not suggest dealing with excursion staff with Celebrity since they are just not skilled or caring.The Catamaran trip was handled by Leeway Excursions and I would go directly to them and not go through the cruise line to lower any problems and enjoy the trip.

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. Read Less

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. Read Less

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. Read Less

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. Read Less
