We chartered a private cruise for 4 with Shawn and Glenford at the helm. What a perfect day! We took a short walk from the cruise dock to the marina and was greeted warmly. After a complete safety briefing and showing us the way around the boat we were off to a private snorkeling spot. Shawn kept us informed of... More

Everything about this trip was excellent, except the snorkeling. No Fish. But overall loved the crew, captain and boat. Lunch was terrific!! Would go again in a snap!

Arriving late on Sunday evening, we looked forward to our previously booked excursion with Blue Water on Monday. We took the 1/2 day Catamaran trip with lunch and snorkeling. Captain Crackers and his crew were delightful! We had a wonderful time and a nice lunch along with plenty of rum punch. Wear your bathing suit, bring your camera and sunscreen... More

Basseterre is an easy port to navigate and it has a very nice tourist district. This was the big excursion that involved all 12 of us. We decided to do a sailing to Nevis and in researching I found that we could charter a 42 foot powered catamaran for the 12 of us for a rate that was not much... More

We went on the Sunset Cruise and had a wonderful evening. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The sunset was beautiful but the best show was when the sky went dark and the stars came out. I couldn't have planned a better evening. Thanks Blue Water!

My friend and I wanted to see St. Kitts and Nevis, so we decided to take this tour on a catamaran, and we're so glad we did. First let me say it's a BIG boat... I think it will hold 80+ passengers. So it's really a party boat, complete with an open bar and great rum punch. The crew was... More

My significant other and I started our experience with these folks on their cocktail cruise. It was such a beautiful and fun experience that we also decided to book a half day snorkeling trip with them. While the snorkeling was nice, it was really the crew that made a difference and encouraged our boat to have fun and get to... More

Several members of our family really enjoyed this port excursion during a Disney cruise in the Eastern Caribbean. We started with the snorkeling portion of the outing. Although it was a little tricky getting into the water over the rocks on shore and with the the undertow, once we did we enjoyed swimming out to and snorkeling over to an... More

Thanks for your review glad you pointed out the snorkel and beach elements , because many people think it's just paddling - As you noted, it is an active tour - and we recommend children participate as follows -- Our Kayaks have a small seat in the middle where a small child (under 6 ) can sit between 2 paddling...

My husband and I enjoy snorkeling and have taken many excursions. This by far tops all other sail/snorkel trips we've taken. The attentive crew served us an amazing buffet lunch and provided our choice of beverage. Usually beer or rum punch is offered but this cruise offered so many more cocktail options. The snorkeling equipment worked well and we were... More

We took this excursion while on a Disney Cruise that stopped in St Kitts. It was sold to us as one that younger children could participate. The catamaran was nice. The problem arose when we arrived at the snorkel location. They had no equipment for children to use-even 8 and 9 year olds. To make matters even more annoying, when... More

Hi and thanks for your review. We appreciate the fact that you enjoyed the sail and snorkel except for the glitch with the kid's size fins. We offer snorkel tours directly and through cruise lines like Disney, and we do say that the boat trip is suitable for all ages, We carry children's masks, but the smallest size fins we... More
