Tour of Nevis?

We are crusing to St. Kitts and have one day and would like to go to Nevis. There are a few tours from St. Kitts, but is a tour necessary? Would we be better off taking the ferry on our own and getting a taxi to take us around to see the island? Is there a lot to see? We want to spend a little time on the beach and visit the beach bars. Also, does anyone know how I can get a ferry schedule? Thank you so much for any help!!!

You can find ferry schedules here:

Yes, there are plenty of interesting things to see on Nevis and yes, it's easy to hire a taxi driver/guide to take you around the island. There will be plenty of very capable taxi drivers waiting at the ferry dock. Ask the driver to give you a 3 hour tour around the island and you'll hit all the high spots and places of interest. The going rate is $20US or $25US/hour (three hour minimum) - sorry can't remember if the driver's were recently granted the price increase to $25/hr.

If you take one of the earlier ferries you can complete the 3 hour tour and have the driver drop you off at one of the beach bars on Pinney's Beach (Double Deuce, Sunshine's, Lime or Chevy's) for lunch and your beach time. Tell the driver what time you'd like him to pick you up so you can catch the ferry back to St. Kitts.

Visit www.lizpereirastourstore.shutterfly.com

There is a tour called Experience Nevis that includes the cost of the ferry, island tour and lunch on Pinney's Beach.

You can take the 9:30 AM ferry and return at 1:30 PM.
