Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Take a luxurious train trip through the island of Saint Kitts as you travel along one of the Caribbean’s first scenic railways, finishing with a coach bus tour of the island’s key sights. Whether you’re a train lover or simply looking for a unique way to explore this tropical island, this train excursion is a great option.

Start your trip with a pickup from your Basseterre or Frigate Bay hotel, continuing to the train to begin your ride. The sumptuously-appointed rail cars feature a range of amenities, including beautifully-designed interiors, a full-service bar, and bathrooms. The car’s upper level features a viewing platform where you can enjoy unobstructed views of the island’s soaring mountain scenery and thick, green cane fields. Meanwhile down below on the lower level, you’ll enjoy air-conditioning and sublime views through the large windows. You’ll also be able to pick from a selection of included beverages during your ride.

Watch as your train pulls out and begins its journey winding its way along the edge of Mount Liamuiga. As you travel you’ll be able to see a variety of scenery like secret black sand beaches, the ruins of decaying plantations and sturdy iron bridges (one of which spans more than 300 feet (90m) over a large valley). The train also passes through a number of towns on the way, including Saddlers Village and Mansion Village, flanked by fields of fruit. 

Listen to commentary about the island and your route, hearing tales like about the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” a train that was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s plantations to its main sugar factory in Basseterre. You’ll also be serenaded with catchy folk songs and tunes performed by the St. Kitts Railway Choir. 

Upon finishing your scenic train ride, climb aboard a sightseeing coach for a 12 mile (19km) tracing Island Main Road. Among the sites you’ll pass are Brimstone Hill Fortress and a number of small towns and villages on the way back to Basseterre.

Please note: there is no reserved seating. All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Liamuiga. Discover the hidden black sand beach and overgrown plantation estates, and cross steel bridges, including one stretching 300 feet (90 meters) across a deep ravine. You will also pass many villages including the Mansion Village and Saddlers Village, surrounded by fields producing a range of fruit. The colorful narration of the history of Caribbean and St. Kitts includes tales of the “Last Railway in the West Indies,” which was used to transport sugar cane from the island’s sugar plantations to the sugar factory in Basseterre, St. Kitts capital city.

Train ride was delayed 3 hours while we waited for a late cruise ship. Speaker in our car died 1/2 way thru the ride so we missed much of the commentary and singing. Ernestine was our hostess and she was very attentive. The scenery was beautiful. The rum punch was delicious.

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 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.
