I'm also considering the logistics - coming from Canada, we have a direct flight from Toronto to st Kitts, I understand that we have to take a ferry boat to Nevis?
Also, how do you compare prices on Sxm and St.Kitts - restaurant, bars, car rental -if needed?




Three basic options for travel between St. Kitts & Nevis are:

1) Passenger Ferry - leaves from the Port Zante Marina in Basseterre (10 minute taxi ride from airport) and goes to Charlestown. Crossing takes about 50 minutes. Usually runs on or very close to schedule. One-way cost (including Port Tax) is about $9US PP. DO NOT purchase R/T ticket as you might be on a ferry run by a different operator on your return trip, besides there is no cost savings. Go here for ferry schedules: http://www.explorenevis.com/nevis-ferry-schedules/

2. Seabridge Car Ferry - (also takes passengers). Leaves from Majors Bay on the southern tip of St. Kitts and drops off at Cades Bay on Nevis. If you don't have a rental car you'll need taxi to take you on 25 minute drive to Majors Bay and pre-arrange for a taxi upon arrival in Nevis as none will be waiting at the Seabridge Dock. Seabridge rarely runs on schedule.

3) Water Taxi from dock on southern peninsula to Oualie Beach on Nevis. If you take one of the scheduled water taxis cost will be $20US PP plus cost of land taxi to dock. Go here for details / reservations number: https://www.facebook.com/islander.watersports.1/

Prices on both islands are similar.
