Leaving for St. Kitts/Nevis in 3 days - last minute itinerary questions!

Jump to last reply

First, let me say, I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS TRIP...and so ready to be out of the office for a week. We are leaving Saturday AM for a 7-night stay on St. Kitts & Nevis. I've done a great deal of research on this site, nevis1.com, the stkittsnevis beaches site, the national tourism sites, and tripadvisor...but still have a few last minute questions. Our itinerary is currently as follows:

Sat - arrive St. Kitts
Sun - St. Kitts
Mon - St. Kitts
Tues - ferry to Nevis
Wed - Nevis
Thu - Nevis
Fri - ferry back to St. Kitts
Sat - depart

For variety, we will be staying at Timothy Beach Resort for the first three nights, then Golden Rock Resort on Nevis for the next three nights, then Marriott for the last night.

Now, my questions -
1) I would like to rent a car for each of the three days on each island, b/c we want to explore, and we don't have a meal plan at either hotel. Is this a good idea, and will it be cheaper than cabs?
2) My BF has never been to the caribbean, and I really want to take him on a day catamaran snorkeling cruise. I have seen recommendations for cruises from St. Kitts, but are there any recommended groups from Nevis?
3) My BF is convinced he wants to do the full volcano hike on St. Kitts. We are in good shape, not marathoners, but we work out regularly. Good idea? And does it truly take the entire day?
4) Other than Timothy Beach on Sat evening and Turtle Beach on Sunday afternoon, any other days we should plan to be at a particular happening spot?
5) We are planning to explore both islands, and in particular with stop at Brimstone Hill on St. Kitts. Any other 'don't miss it' things?
6) I've heard mixed things about the schedule for the ferries between the islands. When (e.g. what time of day) should we generally plan on a ferry for getting to Nevis and returning to St. Kitts?

Thanks in advance for any last-minute tips! I promise to post a trip report upon my return!
