Transport from Nevis to Basseterre, St. Kitts on Boxing Day

Any insight provided for the best way to get from Nevis to Basseterre for J'ouvert on Boxing Day (December 26th) would be much appreciated. There are five of us (parents and 3 adult sons) staying above Oualie Beach. Will the ferries be running a regular schedule on Boxing Day?

Yes, ferries will be running. FYI - if you take the ferry you'll pay about $15 each way for the taxi from Oualie to Charlestown where you'll get the ferry and about $9US per person (so $45US for your group) for the ferry making a total one way cost of $60US for your group.

Your other option is to take a Water Taxi from Oualie to Reggae Beach then a taxi to Basseterre. The staff at Qualie can arrange that for you - with a party of 5 you'll pay a per person rate of $25US each way for the water taxi and $7US each way for the taxi - so about $160US each way - $320US for the round trip.

Thank you so much Caribsufer. I knew you'd know the answer! We have a rental car, so I think we will drive to Charlestown and ferry over from there to Basseterre. We (husband and I) may come back earlier than the boys, but I figure they will probably be able to find their way to Indian Castle.
