Hi Bryan from BWS here -- sorry we don't keep waitlists. Some tours are available last minute, but many sell out a few weeks in advance

Need help from Locals booking sunset cruise (2 Replies)
Any locals out here with contacts for sailing? I am staying in St Kitts until September 16 and have had problems booking a sunset cruise. Blue water Safaris said they need 12 people before they go out and we are the only 2 that have signed up. I have called Leeward island twice without having some one picking up the phone. My boyfriend works during the day till 3:00 so we cannot do the all day snorkeling trip. Does anybody know of any other boat chartters we can try?

Catamaran tours St Kitts to Nevis (2 Replies)
I am in between Leeward Island Charters and Blue Water Safaris for a catamaran and snorkeling trip from St Kitts to Nevis. Does anyone have an experienced opinion??

Response fromCaribSurfer|
They are both very good and they both do the same tour, stopping at the same places. The main difference is Leeward Islands Charter has a somewhat larger boat (and, of course, they have different crew members). You often see them sailing within a few hundred yards of each other. One is not better than the other, you'll just meet different people - the beer, soft drinks and rum punches will be just as cold on either boat.
