Basseterre and St. Kitts have much to offer - enjoy traveling all the way around St. Kitts island for great sightseeing and relax afterwards with a beach break. Rich culture, heritage, beautiful landscapes and beach time all in one St. Kitts cruise excursion!

Departing from Port Zante, the fun begins when you meet your friendly St. Kitts sightseeing excursion guide and hop on-board your transportation to start the panoramic sightseeing shore excursion of the capital city and oldest town in the Eastern Caribbean -Basseterre. Depending on the size of the excursion group, your transportation will either be an air-conditioned van or an open-air safari style truck.

You will see Independence Square in downtown, Berkeley Memorial and the Roman Catholic Church. Heading North, you will pass by Boy's and Challenger's Villages and will get to see farmlands and local St. Kitts island houses.

Continuing on to Old Road, you will pass by the cemetery of the first European settlers, Sir Thomas Warner and Samuel Jefferson (relative of the U.S. President with the same name).

The sightseeing excursion journey will take you to Romney Manor to see a 400-year-old Saman tree and stone petroglyphs made for the first island inhabitants, the Caribs. You will also visit Caribelle Batik, to see the artisans working on their hand painted batik clothing designs.

Then the route takes to you Brimstone Fortress. Upon arriving at the fort, you will have one of the best views of the Caribbean Sea and of the neighboring islands of St. Kitts. The Fort George Citadel is the main building of the Fortress and houses the Fort George Museum. Located at the top of Brimstone Hill, its construction dates back to 1790 and is the best-preserved example of the British Fortifications in the "New Wold". The tour inside the Fortress takes around 45 minutes.

To continue with the beautiful landscapes, your guide will stop on Timothy Hill to give you the opportunity for great photo ops of the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean as background.

Lastly, it is time for an optional beach break to refresh in the crystal-clear water or simply enjoy the sea breeze from a lounge chair on a white sandy beach. Your St. Kitts shore excursion guide will take those who wish to skip the beach directly back to the cruise terminal and return for the beach lovers. During your 1 hour beach escape, you can play, relax and enjoy one of the best beaches of St. Kitts. There is a beach restaurant available to purchase food and drinks or purchase watersport services like therapeutic massages, jet skiing, snorkel, water trampolines and more.

Enjoyable excursion!
     5/5 Visited in March 2017

Sunny is an excellent guide, he made us laugh and enjoy the experience like old friends. We learned a lot about St. Kitts history and culture. The sights from the Fort are amazing but the beach was the best. Just make sure to bring bug spray for the fort!
