Arriving by Sea

Many visitors say travelling by boat is the only way to arrive on Nevis. The views of Mount Nevis, the dormant volcano, as you approach the island are stunning. 

Arriving by sea is the ideal choice for those flying into St Kitts from Europe or North America. Boats will travel to Charlestown, the capital of Nevis, while the Seabridge ferry docks at Cades Bay. On demand water taxis from St Kitts normally arrive at Oualie Beach on the island’s north side.

Small cruise ships and ferries dock at Charlestown, from where it’s easy to get taxis and other road transportation.

Visitors arriving on yachts are required to check in with customs and immigration for official clearance.
