What people are saying about Basseterre

Very fun and the staff are very attentive and enjoy what they do. This was my first time going snorkeling in the open ocean and it was a fun experience. It's more fun than the catamaran since you actually drive a speedboat. Me and my brother took turns driving (one to the destination and the other on the way back). The guides are very serious about safety and about having fun. I highly recommend booking this excursion. I was also very grateful to be able to book this as all of the other snorkeling opportunities were booked up. I am glad this experience was even better than my original plan.

Excellent trip. Loads of fun. The lads are fabulous and very safety conscious. Only difficulty is getting back on boat after snorkelling especially if you are not particularly fit or strong. The guys help you as best they can.

We had an awesome adventure on this tour! We saw some amazing sea life and had a blast on the speedboats. The staff was was super friendly and fun! Thanks, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore for a great day in beautiful St. Kitts.
