I have booked a private charter with this company as well as just a regularly scheduled booking.
I have to say that the staff is amazing. On both occasions I was able to use WhatsApp and talk with the office manager to answer any questions and be well prepared for my trip.
When booking a private catamaran I felt that I really got to make most of the decisions and my friends agree this has been the most fun we’ve had on a catamaran trip since being on island. By this I mean I was able to choose what time we left, if we included drinks and food, and if we used Leeward’s private beach in Nevis or went to the local beach bar in Nevis.
The days leading up to my private booking, I was in contact with the office manager multiple times, discussing who and how many signed up. I asked a an extension to be able to get more people to sign up and I was granted one with no hesitation. Even when I had friends book last minute, they would re-open and then close the link for my private booking.
The trip…. AMAZING! The staff was well mannered, constantly re-filled and brought drinks out to the guest any where on the boat. The staff allowed us to play our own music and even helped to get the party started! When it was time for lunch, again the staff was so helpful and made sure that those who had any dietary restrictions were able to have the food that met their needs. How the staff managed to get us all back on the boat after snorkeling and after having more drinks at a bar in Nevis….. I don’t know but no one was left behind. The captain made sure we were all safe and it was smooth sailing!
I can say even with doing a regularly scheduled booking the staff on the boat still acts the same way, and they make sure to take good care of us on the boat!
This company is amazing and who I recommend for any cat trips while on island. I really cannot say enough good things about them!

Best day ever! We rented the private all day Caona for our anniversary with 3 young children (4,6,9) and everyone love it. We had Captain Knox, Mr. Charles, and Mr. Pete. They were all so sweet to help with my children around the boat and make them feel comfortable. They also knew a ton about the island and gave us history about Hamilton and pointed out interesting areas. We had lunch on the boat and it was excellent. They had 6 different serving plates of options- all fresh and from a local restaurant. They kept the coconut rum and rum punch coming to us and they were generous! We went to Nevis and around St. Kitts and saw beautiful areas of both islands. Snorkeling around some reefs.
Highly recommend them and would definitely go again next time I come back!

We had a wonderful time on this half day adventure. Although it rained all morning and the weather looked terrible, we braved the storm and went out for a snorkeling and sailing excursion. Captain Lennox and his crew were incredible. Even though the weather was not great the boat sailed very smooth to our snorkeling spot and then out came the sun. We spent an hour enjoying the reef seeing all kinds of fish, sea urchins, and coral. Even saw a few eel. Afterwards we enjoyed a great sail back, beer and music.

We actually went on this Snorkeling and Sail trip on The Eagle in December 2018 but the dates would not let it go back that far. I would recommend The Eagle and their Snorkel and Sail trip highly. We booked it through Celebrity Cruiseline which was our ship but you can book through Leeward Islands Charters directly. Ian, our captain, was very nice and fun as was his crew. We’ve gone on other catamarans in different places and this was by far the best! 5 PLUS stars!

This is a must-do St. Kitts & Nevis excursion! My family of six adults had the best time aboard the Eagle with Marlon, Brad and Ian. All three were so kind, funny and are experts of the area. They were able to answer so many of our questions about the islands. Our cruise wouldn’t have been the same without them! We selected the half day (4 hour) cruise option with a light lunch. It ended up being just the right amount of time in the sun for our family. The open bar was incredible with local cocktails and fan favorites. We also thought the lunch was amazing. Our boat had grilled chicken sandwiches, chips, coleslaw and pineapple. Delicious! We were fortunate to be on a cruise of 12 passengers, which is light compared to the boat’s capacity of 50. The hour of snorkeling was magical. We saw an array of sea life, including many species of fish, urchins, coral reefs and plants. Truthfully, this cruise was the highlight of our trip - you can’t visit St. Kitts & Nevis without Leeward Islands Charters!

We had such an amazing experience with Lennox and Charles! Definitely one of the best snorkeling adventures we have ever had. Not only were they accommodating of us (we had run late to meet them) but they were super attentive to our needs and took such great care of us. The snorkeling spot that they took us to was fabulous - very calm waters and beautiful reefs and we were the only ones there. It was so private.
They offered great drinks while we chilled and sun bathed.
Highly recommend!

We took the half day snorkelling tour from Nevis in mid-January, as a wrap-up to our week-long holiday. We were on board the Caona with Captain Lennox and his wonderful crew. They took excellent care of us, and chatting with Lennox was fascinating. He used to be a master boat builder and was part of the team that built the Caona. He LOVES that boat and told us many wonderful stories. It was unusually calm the day of our tour so we were unable to sail, but just being out on the water with this helpful and entertaining crew made for a wonderful trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the snorkelling and found it to be better than we had anticipated. St. Kitts and Nevis is not a snorkelling destination, but we still saw plenty of fish, a sea turtle and a baby ray. Lennox fussed over all of us, making sure everyone was having a good time, had a drink, had a towel, whatever you needed. They had pool noodles and life jackets for those who weren't comfortable swimming so everyone made it into the water.
It was a thoroughly lovely afternoon and a perfect way to end off our holiday. Highly recommended.

Booked these guys because they had the best reputation on my research. Booking was easy, BUT had to wait almost til the day to see if the trip would go ahead or not. Booking allows for cancelling up to 24 hours beforehand meaning that unless the boat is guaranteed full, they might not run it. However, it did run and it was great fun. On arrival at the dock it looked like there were a lot of people booked but once on the boat it was spacious and uncrowded. The boat guys and the captain were very attentive to your enjoyment, the open bar was not just available but freely offered. The beach lunch was more than adequate and freshly prepared and good quality. Be prepared though for a long stop at Nevis beach, there is a bit of shade under trees and the water is great for swimming but a book/kindle is a good idea to pass the time if you don't want to swim or utilise the beach. Sailing back was lovely with the sails up and gentle reggae music, I was genuinely sad to see the return dockside. Would definitely book this trip again, not the cheapest but probably the best.

We took a full day snorkel and sail trip with our family of 5 (kids all teens) and it was the best day of our vacation. The crew was just the right mix of friendly, safety-focused, capable and leaving us to a family outing. They let our oldest control the music (which was good for all). It was a beautiful day/trip. They arranged lunch that was good and went off without a hitch.

As a part of our Pedego Adventure Electric Bike tour sponsored by Pedego St. Kitts, on our last evening together the group took a a sunset cruise with Captain Lennox and his crew Stallone and Charles. They were very professional, knowledgeable and fun to be around. The catamaran was beautiful and very comfortable. The evening was overcast, but Captain Lennox found the perfect cove to wait it out and we were able to see the sunset after all. I'm one of those people that get motion sick at a drop of the hat, but the cruise was smooth sailing and I had no problems at all! My husband and I really enjoyed the cruise and would sail with again with Leeward Island Charters.
