Recommended excursions for teens - St. Kitts, St. Thomas and Nassau

Recommended Posts

First time cruise on Symphony of the Seas in April 2019.  Looking for recommendations for excursions in Basseterre, St. Kitts, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Nassau, Bahamas.  Traveling with 5 active teenagers.  Interested in dolphin experience on 1 of these islands, not sure which one is best and most affordable.  Also, any recommendations for third party tours vs RC booked?  Thank you?

St Kitts my wife and I did a ATV tour, you couldn't go 100 MPH but it was fun, there is a volcano hike on ST. Kitts but what people have said on here is that you really have to be in excellent condition to do this.

St Thomas/St Johns, this is always a beach/snorkel stop, can't beat the beaches here.

Nassau Segway tour has been fun.

Magens bay was great in St. Thomas, but it doesn't have "aqua parks" per se, so not sure it works for you.  We also took at ferry to St. John's and the beaches there are the most beautiful I have seen in my 4 cruises!.  Again, no bells and whistles.  We did the dolphins in Cozumel which was great, so I don't have any eastern Caribbean advice on that.  St. Kitts was a challenge for us...I'd love advice on that.  On that day we got off for an hour, and then frankly were done.  We went back on the ship and really enjoyed having the chance to try things on the boat without as many people!  Have a great trip!  Jane

In St. Kitts our family booked an off road excursion in an open air truck that toured the island and spent some time at the beach. We booked through Royal but the company is called Safari Greg I believe and you can book with them directly.

It may not be the most fun for teens but we have gone to Carambola Beach Club several times and it is a wonderful place! You can snorkel from the beach on your own and there is a little secluded area right next to it that is great for snorkeling. I think the taxi ride is $8 per person round trip but it's been 2 years since we have been there so don't quote me on that. Good luck!

In St. Kitts we booked the safari tours.  It can be purchased via the ship or independently, Greg's safari tour.  The vehicle is open on the sides but covered 4x4 vehicle if I remember correctly that took us around the highlights of the island including a stop at to one of the higher points on the island which gave a great view of St. Kitts and neighboring islands.  There was a stop at a beach club for approximately 1 hour as well.  It was very informative and gave a great overview and history of the island.  This is a good option if want a good sampling of St. Kitts.  We found booking through the ship to be almost the same price as booking elsewhere.
