Come Join Us In St. Kitts

Peacock Flounder

Scuba divers of all ages and abilities delight in St. Kitts’ glorious underwater world, with many sites virtually unexplored. Bordered by the Caribbean and the Atlantic, the island offers a range of options, from near-shore reefs to subaquatic caves. Underwater visibility ranges from 30 to 100 feet deep, meaning you’ll have crystal-clear views of walls, ledges, under hangs, coral towers, and sunken ships, all swarming with sea life. St. Kitts’ sister island, Nevis, also offers supreme diving, along with the channel between the two.

  • Reef diving. Our reefs provide a good hiding place for Spotted Drum, High Hat Arrow Crab and large lobsters. Divers love the Hot Vent at 90 feet, fizzing with 100oF water. Depths range from 35 feet to 95 feet.
  • Wreck dives. More than 400 ships have sunk off the shores of St. Kitts, with only a dozen or so having been identified to date. The most popular wreck dive, especially for novices, is River Taw, a 144-foot-long freighter sunk at 50 feet in 1985. A large variety of reef fish, including Squirrel Fish, Barracuda, Glassed Eye Snapper, and Angel Fish, flit about its encrusted coral.
  • Cave diving. Divers at Devil’s Cave, north of Charlestown on Nevis’ west coast, navigate through coral grottos and around overhangs crowded with Glassy Sweepers, Blue Tang, Nurse Sharks, Sting Rays, and on occasion Black Tip Reef Shark. Depths are up to 40 feet.

Sea temperatures in St. Kitts range from 74F-79F in winter to 80F-85F in summer. Divers find that a 3mm suit provides adequate warmth while diving. Those who dive in warmer waters, or tend to feel the cold, may want to opt for a thicker suit, especially during the winter months.

Things To Do When Dry

 

SCENIC RAILWAY TOUR - The prettiest way to experience St. Kitts is a ride on the old sugar train, now transformed into a charming Scenic Railway Tour. It offers a unique perspective on the island as travelers ride along the old sugar railways, explore abandoned sugar plantations, churches, and experience the mesmerizing beauty of the island and warmth of the locals that wave you by through villages. Enjoy unlimited drinks, sample local sugar cakes and traditional songs from the scenic railway trio. 

ROMNEY MANOR, CARIBELLE BATIK, AND WINGFIELD ESTATE - Once owned by Samuel Jefferson, (Thomas Jefferson’s great, great grandfather) and the Earle of Romney, the 17th-century Romney Manor sugar estate is now home to Caribelle-Batik. Set in 12 acres of lush landscaped gardens, at Romney Manor, artisans do live demonstrations of the batik process and sell authentic batik artwork and clothing. At the approach of Wingfield Estate stop to scout ancient petroglyphs made by original Carib inhabitants, and discover old structures from the old sugar estate and rum distillery.

VISIT BRIMSTONE HILL FORTRESS AND NATIONAL PARK Head to the hills and enjoy breathtaking panoramic vistas from this imposing military fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage Site showcasing 17th-18th-century military architecture. Built by African slave labor, the fort was painstakingly constructed over a century from nearby volcanic rock deposits. Today, the museum provides an in-depth look into at what life would have been like for the soldiers living in this dramatic setting.

ZIPLINE THE LUSH RAINFORESTS - Friendly and professional zipline staff guide you through a total of five lines up to 1350 ft long, that offer breathtaking views as you soar through a tropical rainforest. An adrenaline-fuelled experience that allows you to reconnect with nature and perhaps catch a glimpse of green vervet monkeys in the trees.
