Port pick up and drop off by Dan at 10:00 am sharp.

Dan took us to Majors Bay away from all the other crowded beaches. It was just myself my husband and our guide Dan. He set up chairs and a cooler with refreshments. We were given some instructions and away we went. We had the entire bay to ourselves. It was gorgeous and peaceful. A great excursion that we did that was not attached to the cruise ship.

Dan even brought snorkel gear.

It was a little windy and I was still able to get up on the board and paddle.

Would do again in a heartbeat!

Nick met us at the port. We did the beach day. Nick took us to a private beach where we were alone. The snorkeling was unbelievable. When we finally took a break from snorkeling, he suggested we get our paddleboards and paddle to the private beach. Although the trade winds caused alot of waves I was able to stay on the board pretty well with his instructions. My wife has her own SUP. I am a kayaker. It was an awesome experience. The island is just beautiful. Nick is awesome and he took great care of us. We did not have to take a taxi to get to the beach. I would highly recommend the SUP rental. He needs to charge more for this attraction.

A group of 8 us did the SUP beach day while on a cruise with a stop in St Kitts.

We had an amazing time! We met Nick at Majors Beach which was a beautiful secluded beach that we had all to ourselves. It was a little windy at first so Nick and his partner loaded up the boards and took them down shore so we could board with the wind which made all the difference. Nick wanted to make sure we had a good experience and we did. All of us were first time boarders and we were all able to do it. He also had snorkel gear, beach chairs, snacks, and drinks. This was one of the best excursions on our cruise!

I was a little worried about the taxi situation as I had never been to St Kitts but it could not have been easier. We were in a van and it was $14 a person round trip. The taxis were very professional and our driver (Daisy) said she would be back at the time requested and she was. No worries.

We spent the day in St. Kitts with Beau from Honu Pelikana. Beau took us to a beautiful, secluded beach where we were able to spend time on the paddle boards. It was a really windy day, but a good time was had by all as we paddled on the boards, snorkeled and enjoyed the snacks. We especially enjoyed the ride to the beach with Beau filling us in on the beautiful island. Nick was very quick to respond to questions and was extremely accomodating.

My wife and I took the SUP tour while stopped at St. Kitts on a cruise. We took a taxi (about $20) from the port to Whitehouse Bay. This gave us a quick tour of the island as we drove to the far southern end. We were dropped off at a beautiful and completely secluded beach, where we had a few minutes to take a dip in the water before Nick arrived from Honu Pelikana. He gave us a quick overview of SUP techniques, which helped a lot, since neither one of us had ever done it before.

The equipment was in great condition, but there is one caveat. I am 6'5", and there was no paddle that was quite tall enough for me. This made it slightly harder to paddle, since I had to lean slightly to get purchase in the water. If you happen to be my height or taller, you may want to check with Nick ahead of time to see if he may have a longer one available.

Once we got on the water, my wife had issues with her balance, so she ended up kneeling for the whole ride. Our guide was very helpful and made sure that she was doing OK since she was paddling more slowly than everyone else. The views were great, and the perspective while standing up on the paddleboard made it even better. The length of the tour is just right - just long enough to get a good workout and to see the views of St. Kitts, but not long enough that you get completely worn out.

Once the tour was over, I realized that I had accidentally not brought enough cash to pay for the tour and still take a taxi back to the ship. I told Nick, and he volunteered to take us back to the boat in his truck. He was very helpful, even though it was completely my fault. Overall, it was a great tour, and I would recommend it to anyone coming to St. Kitts.
