This scenic rail and sail tour runs in a complete circle around the island allowing visitors the opportunity to see the entire country by train and then by catamaran. The St. Kitts Scenic Railway is one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. This one-of-a-kind narrow gauge railroad was built almost a century ago to deliver sugar cane from the fields to the mill in the capital city of Basseterre. The railway now provides a fascinating way to see the island from the comfort of double-deck railcars built specifically for touring the island of St. Kitts. After arriving at La Valle Railway Station, you’ll be transferred the short distance to Pump Bay to board your state-of-the-art catamaran. Sailing along the southwestern coastline of St. Kitts is one of the most spectacular voyages in the Caribbean.
Enjoy excellent vistas of Brimstone Hill Fortress, the British 'Gibraltar of the West Indies' and the many sugar plantations that dot the coast. Small fishing villages nestle among the sugar cane fields at the foot of the lush green slopes of Mount Liamuiga. Pass Old Road, the first British settlement, founded by Sir Thomas Warner in 1624. Sail around Bloody Point, where in 1626 the French and British came together to destroy the power of the Carib Indians. During the cruise back to Basseterre, you can enjoy the open bar for light refreshments.
