Default Southern Caribbean Excursions

Hello All,
I turn to the experts (you) for advice.

I need help with private island tours for the following ports:
Antigua
St. Martin
St Croix
St. Lucia
Barbados

We only like to book with private operators. We have done this the last 4 years and only had one issue.

We we will be on the Serenade of the Seas. First time with RCL. Have been on Carnival in the past (Valor, Sensation, Destiny).

We are 2 families with teenagers. We look for beach/island tours/lite to moderate activites.

This board has been very helpful in the past, so I once again turn to you for advice.

Thanks in advance,
Mitch......

I can certainly help you with the 2 ports I have visited..


St. Maarten~ some great beaches..Dawn and Orient..The America's Cup excursion lets you see what hard work, a sailing yacht is....The Buttterfly Farm, and an island tour, which I happen to love, are also available at the dock, or onboard.


Barbados~ we vistied Harrisons Cave, which has been refurbished, and is a eye popping wonderful excursion...http://harrisonscave.com/

Trip,
Thanks for the helpful info.
I have heard about HARRISON'S CAVE. How would you get there? How much time can you spend there? Would you visit any beaches while there?

What the Concord exhibt or something like that I heard about?
Thanks,
Mitch....

Given the popularity pf the Caves, I am sure onboard you could book the excursions. We had booked a private your, thet fell theouigh, so they aranged a private cab for us and we did the Caves, as well as an island tour...it was several housrs as I remember..you can also grabsb tours once you dock,cabs will be there offering tours..

Sandy Lane is a very exclusive beach area, which is quite beautiful...the shore excursion desk can help you there....shopping has a bit of an urban feel here..lovely island, lovely people...
