  • Booked the tour online and there was a problem with our pickup at Marriott however following a call Blu Water Safari quickly picked us up but we arrived almost 30 minutes late at the catamaran. If there was another group ahead of us they left and we ended up the only 2 people on a beautiful 65 foot catamaran with a 4 person crew!! The crew showed no signs of being burdened with all that work to sail the two of us to the other end of the island. THe crew was fabulous constantly filling our complimentary drinks and helping us step out onto the front of the yacht. The crew leader came to the front and gave us a narrative of what we were sailing by then we were met at the marina and a safari open air tour van took us on an amazing land tour. His name was Elvis and he was very, very good. There is no way that Blue water Safari made any money on this trip for 2 but the important point is that they delivered the service anyway in a 5 star manner. Blue Water Safari is a reliable tour company that delivers a superior service.

  • The narrative on the train trip provided context to the history and development of St. Kitts. Christmas carolling by the staff was much appreciated along with free flow of rum drinks. The greenery and coast with black sand were spectacular.

  • Gives a totally different view of the island that can't be seen from the road. One of the highlights of our trip!

  • The tour was worthwhile- nice nature and guide. The drinks and music added to the uniqueness

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The train itself was comfortable.. open air up top and allegedly air conditioned on lower level (not in OUR car). Toilet onboard was disgusting -- worse than outhouse. Staff, however, were terrific. "Sites" consisted of 3 bridges, concrete quarry, school kids waving and a beach view here and there.

  • This tour was nice. The railway is a nice way to see a lot of the island without driving.
